★★★★ 4 Stars ★★★★

Time and Space is a second chance romance with a dark twist, a love triangle that made me feel angry one minute, and sympathetic the next.

Former Navy SEAL Cody Ridge, comes back from the dead when after three years in captivity he is rescued by his fellow brothers.

Interior designer Lainey Rosemont waited three years to move on from her immense grief at losing the love of her life and is now engaged to be married to Dax Redding, the SEAL who rescued him.

“I think that’s the kind of love that means the most. It changes when we need it to and stays steadfast at the same time. We have the time and space kind of love, Fast Lane.” - Cody

Wow I've found a new author that will be on my auto read list. This is a well-written story that keeps you engaged from beginning to end. I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this. Rachel Robinson is so good at weaving in bits and pieces of the characters to add such depth. This book

I'd forgotten (shame on me) just how well Rachel Robinson writes and what a great storyteller she is. My first read of hers was Crazy Good. If you've not read it, you really should because it's crazy good! This book is about Cody Ridge, an ex-Navy SEAL and the one and only love of his life Lainey Rosemont.

It is this type of book that one can enjoy more and the other at all. Well written, quite original story. But unfortunately I'm more in the latter group. And not because it is a love triangle and a degree of anxiety is high. This is something you agree with when you start such a book. But I just don't agree with the decisions that the heroes make. Therefore not completely satisfied.

Review by Natasha Gentile

So if you have been following my reviews you will know that Rachel’s first book Crazy Good killed me. It was and is in my list of top books read of ALL time. It started me on my path of stalking this author. Waiting for whatever crumbs she would feed me. Next she gave us Set in Stone. This book, if you think Crazy good was heart-wrenching Set in Stone took what ever was left of my heart. I didn’t think she could do it again; well I’m going to say she did. Time And Space,

A lot of GR friends love Rachel's writing, and I haven't gotten to any of her bks yet on my TBR (big surprise!), so this is the first...

Cody and Lainey have a history that was interrupted when something happened to Cody. Presumed dead, Lainey moved on, fast forward 3 years, about to get married. But Cody resurfaced. And so began the triangle that is Lainey, Dax, and Cody; a complicated triangle that is (is there one that isn’t?). It’s a weird pre

The Premise : Can two souls overcome a crazy amount of obstacles, including returns from the dead, to be together? Well, if you've ever watched a soap opera, you already know the answer. Here, Cody Ridge was taken during one of his Navy SEAL missions and was presumed dead for more than three years. When he returns, his fiancé Lainey Rosemont, has moved on and is planning to marry another SEAL named Dax, who was there to comfort her when it all went to hell.

As much I loved CRAZY GOOD, the debut book from this author, I am not quite sure what to make of this latest book. CRAZY GOOD was a sexy, refreshing, very readable story with an unforgettable Alpha and it was exciting to read a new author. Unfortunately, TIME AND SPACE did not work for me at all. There is a dramatic, totally unbelievable plot twist literally dropped into the story with zero explanation or set-up. Added to the large number of editing and grammar issues, I'm afraid th
Could not put this down!

There's nothing like a read with angst to get your heart thumping and this definitely had that.

Lainey lost the love of her life Cody when he went missing in action on a mission.

But what do you do when after three years you finally learn to love again, have your own wedding to plan and find out your first love is back, he didn't die but was held hostage.

What a delemma!

Broken hearts never truly heal, they mend, beat a little differently, forever after.

I'm exhausted. Completely broken down until I don't think I can "feel" another single thing without breaking apart at the seams. I cried for the first time at 8% and from there on out I was either crying, cussing and raging, feeling hopeful then disappointed, being worried, feeling fictional characters!!!

2.5 stars. Maybe. I don't know. Cody was worth it but I really disliked Lainey. I didn't connect with her, her choices, or her relationships with Cody and Dax. The storyline was killer but the execution was just so so. I guess my angst expectations were too high. (Yes, you read that right. I actually wanted more angst.) There is a lot of sex though. Ms. Robinson was clearly saving up the extra special sexy times for Book 3. Enjoy!

Time to grieve

Time to heal

Time to move on

Time seems to be ever present…limitless, but it's also a fleeting idea because there's either too much or not enough of it when it comes to the really important things in life.

Lainey and Cody belonged to each other, but in the blink of an eye, their time together is gone, and they're left separated due to a devious plan of revenge and the burden of picking up the pieces and trying to go on.

Time and Space is a whirlwind adventure through thrilling twists and turns. This book is filled with devastation and heartbreak but intense love and lust.
Time & Space is my first Rachel Robinson read. One thing you'll notice while reading this story is that the writing is solid and executed perfectly. Rachel builds the story and her characters up brilliantly and holds every inch of attention right through til the end.

Great addition to the series! I love the authors writing and her story telling ability. Lainey and Cody's story was sweet, complicated, sexy and suspenseful. It kept my attention throughout the book and had me anxious at times. It was definitely worth it in the end!!
Marieke ~ Marieke's Books
One of my favorite types of books is the ‘second-chance romance’. The story of two people who have loved before, got separated through circumstances and are now giving their love a second-chance. Time and Space by Rachel Robinson falls exactly into this category. It’s written in a beautiful and realistic way. I love it.

This book was not what I was expecting..a first love that endures a tragedy that no one can get over..until life continues for one and is torture for another. I enjoyed this story but struggled with some of the time lines..and some of the back and forth that two main characters endured.

4.5 Stars! Time and Space is a fantastic romance read with lots of angst and suspense, the love scenes are of volcanic proportion and the plus side we get to see what’s happening with Windsor & Maverick, Steve & Morganna.

Cody comes back after 3 years since Lainey buried him. She’s moved on and it’s planning her wedding with another Navy SEAL, Dax Redding.

But can you turn your back on the love of your life, or can you continue planning a life with the man that put you back together and healed you

This is a second chance romance story about Lainey and Cody.

Three years Cody was taken captive during a routine Navy Seal mission, Lainey is now engaged to Dax. However Cody is now back and he wants what revenge on the people who took everything from him.

Since finishing this story I have been on the fence about how I felt about this book. At times I really liked the story line but at others I just really didn't get the characters- Lainey and Dax's actions. I really didn't like Lainey character

I am not a fan of love triangles so I try to shy away from stories with them in it. This is sort of a triangle but not really or maybe it is. With that being said I did enjoy this story. I loved the more action, suspense and surprise twists. It kept me on my toes. The epilogue was perfect and just got me right in the feels.

The narration on this story was better than the other stories in the series and I really enjoyed listening to Troy Duran and Noelle Bridges. It was such a pleasant experience.

I love when you re-read books from an author and you are reminded just why they are one of your favorites and what exactly drew you to them in the first place. One of my favorite sub-genres is the one that involves military men. I particularly love me some Navy SEAL's, but really, I'm not picky. Add to that some steamy erotic suspense and a group of characters you instantly fall in love with and you have a winner in my book. That's what happened when I read Crazy Good a while back.

Five plus stars!!

I’m a huge fan of Crazy Good and Set In Stone so when the opportunity came to read and review Rachel’s new book Time And Space I was so excited.

When you read the first book in a series and it blows you away you usually think the other books will not measure up. Well let me tell you this book exceeded my expectations. Holy sh*t it was good. I think I may have liked it even more if that’s possible.

I've been a fan of this series for a while now. This one has lots of twists and turns including a lot of spoilers, so this review will be vague and a bit short. I liked this one, but didn't love it as much as the first two. 'Crazy Good' was one of my favorites. I found Lainey to be a bit wishy washy when it came to her emotions for Cody and another situation. I wanted to smack some sense into her. There was a twist about halfway through I didn't see coming and I kind of liked it. It

Wickedly Hot and Absolutely Stunning! This is the first book that I have read by Rachel Robinson and it has blown me away! Lainey had me laughing, Cody had me crying.

I am definitely going to be having a book hangover now that I have finished Time and Space! Between the storyline, and writing style I can't wait to read more bo
Another hit. This author keeps you guessing and keeps you wanting with the steamy passion throughout this book. The flow of this book keeps you on your toes as you go through the motions of not only Both main characters but also all the backstory and when things come to light, I did a serious double take. I mean, WTF!!! I did NOT see that coming. LOVED IT...LOVED IT. Read it. You won't be disappointed.

“There are some secrets that women should always keep secret. Disgusting habits, how many sex partners they’ve had, and most importantly the fact that they’re skilled in espionage. Lainey Rostov, Russian surveillance spy, trained at gathering information about Navy SEALs and reporting back intelligence is coming out to play. It wasn’t easy moving to Virginia Beach with the goal of finding, dating, and then extracting information from a Navy SEAL. Actually it was quite a bit more difficult than that—I had to weave myself into the community, befriend SEAL girlfriends and wives, I had to blend in. You’d be surprised the amount of details men are willing to give out while drinking at a bar and better yet, in between the sheets. I’d fathom a guess that I’m a million times better at espionage than my male counterparts. I have more parts to use to my benefit. Does Cody know? Of course he knows. He called me out right at the get-go. I think that’s why I fell so hard for him. Intelligence looks divine on that man with such brawn. I glance over at him with his freshly fucked hair and mussed clothing and smile. He winks at me while he continues his phone conversation. He’s just as deranged as I A match made in fucked up heaven. What happens when a spy falls in love with her target? My fucking life. This is what happens. And Vadim wants to screw with me again. I don’t think so. I don’t think so. I wink back, lick my lips, and calculate just how dangerous this territory will be. Desperate times call for desperate measures. No matter what the cost. No one is taking him from me again.” 0 likes
