While I found the story to be interesting with a different approach, I never came to like the characters. I felt like the constant name-dropping such as fancy restaurant names, New York stores, and designer clothes detracted from the story. It hit me as an attempt to impress. I found that I really wasn't interested in what happened to these wealthy somewhat self-absorbed people. I gave this 3 stars because the plot of the novel is fine. It would have been more interesting with regular people. ( )

I probably would have enjoyed this book more if I knew what I was getting into. I was expecting a light romance with a twist of time travel, but that is very much not what this book is about. By the time I realized how dark it was going to get, I was too far attached to the characters to put it down. I did love how this book takes a deep look at both friendship and romance, and how those relationships change over time. I liked the honest way that it dealt with death. It was, however, not what I was really looking for in a book at this particular moment. ( )

Was not a huge fan of the main character. Thought it was bizarre that she kept calling one of the other characters by the wrong name for the majority of the book and people only called her out on it 2% of the time.

not a bad bath read. Little bit of a twist at the end. ( )

Dannie Kohan lives her life according to rules and numbers. She has a five year plan, which is all coming together nicely when her boyfriend David proposes right on schedule, and on the same day that she lands her dream job at a top lawyers firm. However, that evening she falls asleep and when she wakes up, she is five years in the future, living at an apartment in a completely different part of town – and apparently with a gorgeous boyfriend named Aaron.

Dannie again falls asleep and wakes up back in her real world with David, and dismisses her experience as a vivid dream,. But she can’t forget about Aaron, the mysterious man from the future, and when she meets him in very unexpected circumstances, things start to get complicated.

I am in two minds about this book. I really enjoyed the first part of the book, and although I am not generally into fantasy or storylines which are entirely implausible, the dream/premonition part of the story was well done and did not bother me. I loved Dannie’s relationship with her impulsive and beautiful best friend Bella, and I also really liked her fiance David. Given that the book is narrated by Dannie, she is the character who we get to know best, and at times she irritated me, as she had such a controlling nature, but overall she was a good hearted and kind person.

The story does take a tragic turn which I won’t reveal here, and although it was very sad, it was well written. Everything that happened – apart from the dream at the beginning of course – seemed believable and I did get drawn into the lives of these fictional characters and was eager to know how the beginning of the story would tie into the end. And that was the problem for me. I liked most of the ending, but I did not like how those two particular parts of the story came together and it did spoil it somewhat for me.

There’s no doubt though that Rebecca Searle can write and can draw the reader/listener in, so although the ending left me with mixed feelings, I would try another book by her and would cautiously recommend this one. ( )

The future is the one thing you can count on not abandoning you, kid, he'd said. The future always finds you. Stand still, and it will find you. The way the land just has to run to sea.

Happiness.  The enemy of all suffering.
But the thing about parallel tracks is you can be inches apart, or miles.
We are like constellations passing each other, seeing each other's light but in the distance. It feels impossible how much space there can be in this intimacy, how much privacy. And I think that maybe that is what love is. Not the absence of space but the acknowledgment of it, the thing that lives between the parts, the thing that makes it possible not to be one, but to be different, to be two.
"You mistake love. You think it has to have a future in order to matter, but it doesn't. It's the only thing that does not need to become at all. It matters only insofar as it exists. Here. Now. Love doesn't require a future."
