****Now Live**** If you haven't started this duet, I hands down totally recommend it 👍🏻

"E-P-O-C-H. It's a memorable event or period in time".

To write a review to put justice to what this book did to me, no chance.

To put words to how I feel, not possible.

To say how much I 100% adored these male characters in this book, each one of them, is impossible. Nate and Griffen were everything in this book. They loved with their whole hearts, and it was completely soul shattering at times. They

This. This is epoch. I hope I read Jewel E. Ann's books in every life.

It's weird how much I adore this duet considering how many complaints I have.

EPOCH: is the second book in ‘Jewel E. Ann’s’ Transcend duet. It picks up where the first book left off with the murder of her friend and a connection to a cold case death which had us all reeling from the possibilities.

Epoch captures your mind, kidnaps your thoughts, manipulates and crushes your soul. And it literally steals your heart. A deeply, emotional, soul crushing book that had me reelin

“I think a part of you will be mine to love in every life.”

Who wouldn’t swoon over those words? Any of us would be blessed to be loved like that. However, this story made my heart bleed. I hurt and struggled and ached for almost 90% of this book. Why oh why oh why was this author torturing me so? My heart belonged to Griffin. He could do absolutely no wrong in my eyes. But he was only human and his compassion and understanding, although virtually limitless, weren’t endless.

What a conclusion to this duet by Jewel E. Ann!

I found this book a bit slowly paced and I was nervous on how things would end however…


"This life looks beautiful on you.”


A beautiful well written duet that truly will tug on your heartstrings!

Beautiful!! Sublime!

I have no words! What an amazing journey. This is one of the best duets I’ve ever read. Everyone needs to read it. It touched me deeply on so many levels. What a beautiful story about true, never-ending love.

The ending, specially the Epilogue was perfect. I am so happy with how things ended and I feel it was fitting to the story. I have no complaints whatsoever with this book, it was magnificent!

“I’m sorry.

For What?

For waking the dead.

You didn’t wake the dead. You comforted the living”.

This duet has been one of my most highly anticipated reads and I’m not ashamed to admit that I was on cloud freaking 9 when I finally got to start it. Transcendence took me on a crazy ride without my permission and Epoch gave me the after effect of what happens when you surrender yourself without any protection.

It’s almost been 24 hours since I finished Epoch and I’m still finding it hard to put it into words what’ve just read and experienced. Still in awe and I’m going to try to explain this state I’m in emotionally cause reading Transcend and afterwards Epoch was pulling out emotions I didn’t expect. Epoch was pretty spectacular. Out of this world.

I simply loved and adored Swayze, Griffin and Nate. That’s it. These characters had my heart and support in Transcend and I held on for dear life and cheer

"I don't need you to love me back... in this lifetime."

They got their happily ever after and I hated it. The way how it happened. This book started with lots of tension and tons of potential but author just ruined it for me in the way she brought closure to that one thing around which this whole story was woven.

I guess I was expecting too much after the first book and hence the disappointment.
4 Stars

Overall Opinion: Wow. This duet was definitely different! It has a pnr aspect (that I was expecting going in), and I actually appreciated its contribution in making this story so unique. I still think it could've probably been a good single book that is a little on the longer side, but fortunately I didn't mind it being a duet and it didn't feel as stretched out as I was dreading. I f-loved the epilogue and how I felt content in the end in that everyone got their HEA! I would recommend t
I started this book last night figuring I would read a chapter or two and then go to bed. Welp, that didn’t happen. I ended up reading the entire book in one sitting. Yes, this book is just that good.

Epoch picks right up where Transcend ended. Remember that huge cliffy???? I wasn’t expecting the big reveal, but it definitely plays a big part in this book. Swayze is really struggling, the past and the future collide along with her relationship with both Griffin and Nate. My heart broke for all o

Book duets can be a risky business. Expectations are high when the first book is well received. Transcend was easily a 5-star read for me, so Epoch had huge shoes to fill. Jewel E. Ann makes it look easy because Epoch stole my breath time and again. I put my real life on pause while I indulged in every single absorbing page. Eating is so overrated anyway.

There really isn’t any other way to describe my feelings about this book. I knew it was going to be epic. I knew Swayze, Nate and Griffin still had a long way to go. And boy did they. Yet this ending was everything it was supposed to be. I can’t see it any other way and not just because I am beyond giddy with how it all played out. Their story had me crying tears of sadness, happiness, nervousness, shock and straight up awe.

Mindblowing. I am at a loss for words.
Epic not Epoch is probably the right word choice here.
While book one of this duet was captivating and all about the story and characters for me, book two was more an angst filled drama with a little suspense thrown in to the mix.

There are no words to describe the beauty inside the pages of both books in this duet. The angst, the love, the characters, everything about this story captivated me, consumed me.

“Thank you for finding me,” he whispers.

I'm thrilled that this is my first FIVE STAR READ of the year and it is well deserving. You've probably heard that the first book ends pretty dramatically, well, this one picks right up where that one left off.

Swayze now has a purpose, one she's not exactly thrilled about but very intent to see through. She has to make sense of these memories and push herself to remember more so she gets help.
