Time After Time (Time Between Us #2) by Tamara Ireland Stone

5 Stars!

I love this cover!

Calling Anna and Bennett’s romance long distance is an understatement: she’s from 1995 Chicago and he’s a time traveler from 2012 San Francisco. The two of them never should have met, but they did. They fell in love, even though they knew they shouldn't. And they found a way to stay together, against all odds.

It’s not a perfect arrangement, though, with Bennett unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits, skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna in hers. They each are confident that they’ll find a way to make things work...until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen (and certainly never expected to). Will the decisions he makes from that point on cement a future he doesn't want?

Told from Bennett’s point of view, Time After Time will satisfy readers looking for a fresh, exciting, and beautifully-written love story, both those who are eager to find out what’s next for Time Between Us's Anna and Bennett and those discovering their story for the first time.

Thank you Disney and Netgalley for this eARC. 

What I want my review to say: I love you Tamara Ireland Stone. That is all. 

What I probably should say, besides telling you to just READ IT!...

What I Loved: This is one of the best sequels I've read!

Tamara Ireland Stone gives readers a smart love story with intelligent characters who realize that despite what they may want or how they feel about each other, nothing is set in stone. (She also has  great taste in music!) I so enjoyed watching the story unfold from Bennett's POV, seeing Anna through his eyes and having the chance to get to know his family and friends. 

Bennett and Anna struggle with the unusual challenges their relationship presents, how it affects those they love and the possibilities (both good and bad) that go along with Bennett's ability. They have to make choices that are not always easy and often mean sacrificing what limited time they have together. But love is about putting the best interests of the one you love ahead of your own, and for Bennett and Anna, that may mean giving up the one thing they both want most in the world. 

What Left Me Wanting More: I DIDN'T WANT IT TO END! 

Final Verdict: Bittersweet, funny and heart-achingly romantic, TIME AFTER TIME pulls at your heart-strings, ties them up in knots and reminds us that true love really does stand the test of time.
