He asks Claudia to go back in time and change certain events. Initially she is not at all keen but decides that as this may be the chance to stop Adam being hurt in his accident and also from entering into the relationship that has ruined his life - it is worth the chance.
I don't want to ruin the story but things do not go as planned and Claudia realizes that she was not such a wonderful young lady herself. She does interact with her younger self and is surprised at how thoughtless she was.
The author covered Adam's disability brilliantly. Yes, it was part of the story but it was written in such a way that it ceased to become an issue to me. I also loved the fact that this was a love story from the start. Adam and Claudia always belonged together and you don't often read a novel where you know that the couple is in love at the beginning of the novel and remained in love no matter what happened.
Annabelle is an amazing writer who writes very funny, and touching stories.
I am addicted to her books.
Although some other reviewers seem to feel this was written for a YA (Young Adult) audience, I thought it was rather realistically portraying the thoughts and actions of the characters at their different ages. Yes, Claudia made some dumb moves, said things she shouldn't have, made mistakes, but considering she was time traveling - well, there really isn't a lot of direction for how to behave when you are dealing with a dozen years or so in a different time. I especially appreciate that editing seemed to be well done - none of the spelling errors, simple grammar mistakes etc that often plague Kindle version books.
Maybe it was too late at night for me to be dealing with the mental logistics of what happened in the past, and the reveal of how it affected "today" at the end of the book, and I intend to re-read the last couple of chapters to pigeonhole the events. But the ending was neatly wrapped up, and the epilogue tied it up with a bow. Well done.
While I appreciate the author's intent to demonstrate how a disability does not mean the end of a happy and satisfying sex life, I think some readers will feel a little uncomfortable with how detailed the encounters were played out, but the lesson is a good one. Other than that warning, I would recommend this for anyone looking for something just a little out of the standard cookie cutter plots. 4+ stars!
While the basics of the plot are... pretty cheesy, the author does a good job of keeping the reader cheering for Claudia to succeed and appreciating her her simple desire to "fix things" for the man she loves.
I had the plot twist pegged from about 25% in, but that didn't stop me from wanting to see how it all turned out!
SPOILER: My only "yeah right!" thoughts upon finishing the book... there's no freakin' way that 2013 Claudia would just totally forget about "the attractive woman who stayed at her parents apartment" or especially walking out on a blind date with a guy in a wheelchair. I think having young Claudia refuse the date or never having a real interaction with Adam would have been much more fitting. Also, the cover is awful! :-/
All in all, a nice, quick, doesn't-require-a lot-of-brain-power-but-worth-the-time read.
Claudia is dating Adam. He is in a wheelchair due to an accident from his past. He latest project is to create a time machine … to stop him from being stuck in a wheelchair.
Although Claudia and Adam have a great relationship, there are things in the past that prevent Adam to fully committing to more than they have at this time. No marriage or living together, which causes Claudia to be disappointed & angry at times.
”I just wish I had met him before The Bitch ruined him for good.”
Once Adam completes the time machine, “I need you to go through the wormhole,” he says to me in a low voice. “And I need you to stop me from getting hit by the car.”
From this point, Claudia has to decide if she will do this for Adam. Will it be worth it? What if it changes everything between them?
The main characters are complete, but some of the extras could use more than a gloss over … more depth.
The idea around the story is well thought out.
I believe this is the 1st book I have read written by Ms. Costa. If her creativity is as good in her other books, they will prove to be a good read (as well).
Once Claudia goes back in time, things start getting better. When she goes back the second time, the book got really good. However, I figured out the plot twist before it was revealed. Once it was revealed, a lot less was made of it than I feel should have been.
And then there is the ending... That is what earned this review its title. The changes Claudia made in the past show up in the ending, but none of it seems to make sense with the rest of the book. Granted, the book shows that it is possible to change the past slightly, which can account for the changes. However, the changes are SO drastic that it's hard to believe.
While I appreciate the author's intent to demonstrate how a disability does not mean the end of a happy and satisfying sex life, I think some readers will feel a little uncomfortable with how detailed the encounters were played out, but the lesson is a good one on several levels for mature young adults. I appreciate the author's offering it for free on Amazon for a day. This one is a good example of her style.
