Vortex by Julie Cross
Book 2 in a trilogy
My review for: Tempest
Despite the fact that I sound absolutely crazy, and before you leave and call the police on me, let me say a few things.
Jackson is magnificent. He's kind and caring and goofy and totally adorable and just sooooo gorgeous. My favorite thing about him? How much he loves Holly. It's epic, pushing the boundaries of love, and ohmygoodness I just swoon every time. His love for her is one of my very very favorites. Ever.
But then we have the good ole sci-fi elements of this story. TIME TRAVEL GALORE! I'm a huge time travel junkie, and Cross writes such a great time travel story. There's so much to learn in the next book - things got so twisted and crazy and I was left hanging and HURRY UP.
Besides that? I just love Cross's writing. And her side characters. And the journal entries. And, well, everything.
This book reminds me of...
Really amazing imperfect but totally realistic boys who you want to sweep you off your feet
