Great YA Time Travel Romance,
This review is from: Time After Time (Kindle Edition)
(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Disney Book Group, Disney-Hyperion, and Netgalley.)
This is the second book in the `Time Between Us' series, and kicks off a short time after the end of book 1 `Time Between Us'.
**Warning - some unavoidable spoilers for book 1 `Time Between Us'.**
Anna is back from Mexico, and she can't wait to see Bennett, even though it means him travelling back from 2012 to do it.
Bennett is still having issues with his time-travel abilities though, and he doesn't think that he can stay with Anna in 1995 for the school year, instead he's going to have to just come back and visit her every few weeks, even though they both know it will be hard.
Can Anna and Bennett continue their long-distance love? Is Bennett really supposed to use his gift to go back in time and save people's lives? And is Bennett being in Anna's life changing it too much?
This was a great second book in this series, and it was great to catch up with Bennett and Anna.
Anna and Bennett continued to love each other, but were also confused about their relationship in this book. They had the problem that their long-distance relationship was not only over a physical distance, but also a time span of 17 years, which was obviously difficult. Bennett's inability to keep himself in 1995 for more than a few days impacted on them massively, as did Bennett's worries that he was changing Anna's life too much just by being in it.
I liked the storyline in this book, and I liked how we once again revisited the topic of `do-overs' and whether or not Bennett should use his gift to go back in time and help people who may have been injured or killed prematurely. There were quite a lot of questions raised by this that maybe weren't answered fully, but I think that was to be expected taking into consideration the topic of time travel!
The romance in this book was really sweet, even considering the restraints on Bennett and Anna's relationship, and I really wanted things to work out for them. It was so sad that they were separated by so much, and that they couldn't be together like a regular couple.
I liked the ending to this story and the hope that it contained. I'm not sure if there will be more books in this series but if there are I definitely want to read them!
Overall; a great YA time-travel romance.
7.75 out of 10.
