I received this arc by Booktamins in exchange of an honest review. All the opinions are my own.

Diego Delgado's life is turned upside down when he closes his eyes in 2020 and opens them one century before, alone and penniless. Forced to live in a time and world he doesn't know anything about, Diego decides to do anything in his power to try to understand what happened to him and how he could come back to his time, his best friend and ex wife Kendra and his daughter Molly.
In the America of 1920 he

I read this book for a blog tour with Booktamins and received a free copy of the ebook, but all opinions are my own.

Right from the start, I knew that I was going to enjoy this book and I found it instantly captivating and as the story progressed it was so sweet. One of the things that bugged me throughout was that we don't really get a before of Diego's life, we just meet him a few weeks into his trip into 1920, I think that I was just missing a bit of how it all started out, but I have to admi

For the Lost Time is a time-travel LGBT love story, so I was instantly sold. Diego Delgado is a 2020 man that accidentally goes back in time and meets 1920’s Thomas Greely. Plot-wise, most of the intrigue and tension comes from Diego wanting to get back in time and to his daughter. So, the plot is pretty straightforward, which lets the characters shine.

History wise, I’m not sure how accurate it is, but the romance is what matters, so it’s okay. Something else

*I was provided an ARC by the author for an honest review*

Since I’m not a romance reader I do not feel adequately equipped to give a star rating. (For me, 2.5-3) That being said,
Intriguing plot
Well researched on the 1920s environment, lingo, and style
Attention to detail

Over mention of how the MC looks/how attractive he is
Sometimes over focus on minute details instead of driving the story along

Overall, if you like time travel and romance this will be the book for you.
I received a free copy of this book Booktamins as I was chosen to be part of their promotional blog tour. Thank you! However, all my opinions are my own.

This book was such a nice surprise and definitely not what I expected! I have to be honest, I was stressed out when I was chosen for this book tour because I forgot I signed up and I had a million things to do this week so I wasn’t sure I’d get the book done in time. Luckily, this was so easy to fly through and at certain points, I was reading

"How much longer can I be a bystander in your story if I wish to see it end happily?"

I'm not an avid romance reader, hell I rarely read romance. The smallest or cringiest thing will put me off any romance books. So going into this, I tried my hardest to keep an open mind. But to my surprise I didn't have to have an open mind because I was hooked from the get-go! This is definitely my favorite romance of 2020 and probably my all-time favorite romance. And that is definitely saying something.

A heartfelt, time-travel romance that's one of my favorite 2020 reads so far!

Thomas Greeley is the toast of New York's speakeasies and dance clubs. He has the finest clothes, a charming smile to match, and the eye of every modern young flapper in town. But his star-dusted life only shines on the surface. When Thomas meets the handsome, enigmatic Diego Delgado, he's instantly drawn to Diego's aura of loneliness. But Diego's hiding a secret: he's been transported one hundred years into the past, a

Now, I want to begin by saying that I really enjoyed reading For the Lost Time. It is a cute story about two men finding themselves and figuring out who they are and who they want to be, and as a romance, there is of course a HEA. While the main characters were not as deep as they could have been, they were written in ways that made the readers feel with them, and hints for the ending were strewn nicely throughout the book without giving too much away before it was time. And I mean, yeah, Diego ...more

This was a fun book to read. I loved the character development, and she really made the 1920's come alive. I felt like I was right there with Diego and Thomas as they traversed the roaring 20's. It certainly was an interesting spin on time travel, and I really enjoyed seeing how this story unfolded, especially watching how two people from completely different time periods fell in love. I wasn't sure how she was going to end things. There were a lot grim possibilities, but she surprised me with a ...more

What I loved the most about the book were the characters, I love a character driven plot with great set up. The theme of time travel was well handled, at the beginning I thought it was just a trope added to the book to make the story seem different but boy was I wrong. The anomaly is given a very reasonable explanation (y’know, for a romance book, so don’t expect scientific or magic lingo).

The one thing I was not fond of, was the amount of times the
