Tell Me About It
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.
My Thoughts
From the minute I found out about Time After Time I knew I had to read it.  I loved Time Between Us and I couldn't wait to see Bennett's point of view.
Time After Time starts with Bennett in his own time, preparing for a 'camping trip' and making plans to go back and see Anna. They make arrangements for him to visit her at certain times that are important to her, prom, races, parties. If you have read Time Between Us then you know it's not as easy as it seems,and this due have not had an easy relationship.

Time After Time is an eye opening account on how Bennett feels about it all. He wants to do so much and make things better, but at the same time suffers huge consequences to himself. We get to see inside his mind and what he is thinking. I love how he does thoughtful little things that show how he feels about Anna, but also didn't like when he makes her worry, by being sent back into his own time unplanned.

The up, downs, twists, and turn in Time After Time, keeps you guessing, wondering if Anna and Bennett's time will be up, if he will get sent back to his own time at any minute, making each second they spend together that much more special, making each moment last.

It took me a few hours to finish Time After Time, and even though I was sick I had no problems sitting down to read this book, it kept me completely engrossed in what was going on.  By the time I had reached the ending there was a bit of worry on my behalf over what would happen, and while the ending, both the real and the future, were a perfect ending, it was with great sadness that closed the pages of this book.

This sums it up so perfectly. I'm glad you enjoyed this book too, Michelle. Great review. :-)
