    BEST ROMANCE OF 2019 Thanks to Elizabeth for providing me with an ARC of this amazing book Elizabeth O Roark has always been one of my automatic reads, but this book is my favorite to date Her new time travel series Parallel is fabulous, and this book is an wonderful addition to that world This story revolves around Amelie, who is from the 1990s, and Henri, the man she meets when she travels back to France in the 1930s Amelie is haunted by dreams of Kat, her dead sister Each dream is the same her sister begs her to help a woman named Marie in Reims, France While Amelie wants to give up time travel and just live a normal life, she decides she must travel into the past one time, to do what her sister has asked Her trip back in time puts her in the path of Henri, a beautiful man who does not like or trust her He is adamant that she leave and go back to her own time However, after several unpleasant interactions, Amelie and Henri slowly develop a deep friendship While Amelie knows she has to return to her time, as time goes on, she finds it difficult to leave Henri She also is terrified of the horror Henri and his sister will confront if they continue to stay in France as WWII approaches.There are so many reasons I love this book First, I am a big fan of slow burn romances, and this one is amazing There is sexual tension almost from the beginning, but it continues to build as Henri and Amelie get to know each other Second, the banter Amelie s interactions with Henri are so funny and charming, that you quickly realize these two individuals are meant to be together Third, the story It is part romance, part mystery and part fantasy All of which combine to make this book a wonderful ride There is a cliff hanger ending, that will leave you desperately wanting the second book ARGH Ultimately, I give this book my highest rating 5 stars

    Across time, is a book that will defy time Once you pick it up, you won t know where the time went It is hard not to read this story in just one sitting It has that perfect balance of slow burn and intrigue that makes it impossible to set down The depth of characters in this story will have you feeling and fall in love with the characters as they find their way For those of you who loved the Parallel duet, this one will absolutely blow you away.Elizabeth O Roark s superior depth of character and emotions makes this story come alive and will have you wishing you could defy time and space to be apart of this story This is by far a 5 Star read

    I couldn t wait to read this book once Elizabeth O Roark made the announcement that there would be a story taking place in historic France After reading Parallel and Intersect, I couldn t get enough of this world of time traveling women, particularly regarding a mysterious character whom the reader didn t have the opportunity to get to know, but very much wants to and has so many questions for her and her past This book did not disappoint and carried the same vein of romance, angst, wit and suspense.Amelie Besson arrives in a barn in 1938 and is unwelcome by its surly and suspicious owner, Henri Durand Amelie has a potentially bright future ahead of her in the present day, but has some unresolved matters to handle first, which is why she s here She s still not exactly sure what her purpose is, but in order to move forward, she has to carry out her duties and hopefully absolve herself of some longstanding guilt Amelie is not a fan of her time traveling ability and would rather ignore and suppress it altogether, which is her plan once this trip is over I absolutely loved the dynamic between Henri and Amelie and was endlessly amused They constantly antagonize each other at every turn with sharp barbs and digs, but the underlying sexual tension is so electric and obvious from the very beginning Henri comes across as brooding, arrogant and unimpressed, but he adores his sister Marie and is otherwise pleasant to everyone else He is doubtful of Amelie s motives, but she manages to forge a close friendship with Marie Henri is my favorite combination of direct, reluctant, perceptive, caring, protective and chivalrous He says all the wrong things, but his actions dictate otherwise Nick from Parallel and Intersect is a hard act to follow and I loved him something fierce, but Henri s brand of charm hit all the right checkboxes for me especially with knowing who he is in relation to the main character in that duet.It was entertaining to watch Amelie adapt to a period several decades earlier, devoid of modern day conveniences She couldn t wait to go home, but any time she talks about home, it was questionable as to what she was returning to After being around Henri and Marie, she develops a bond that feels familiar to her than with anyone else in her life, causing her to question if she should go back I watched her grow as a character and saw her make some significant strides in terms of self love and acceptance Amelie also has to decide how much to reveal to Henri and Marie about the future during this pre war era and there are some other mysteries intertwined that have a direct impact on each of these characters Will they have a chance at the future they want or will their paths take an alternate trajectory From the very first page, I was immersed and captivated, feeling completely invested in these characters Needless to say, I cannot wait to find out what happens next because I want answers If you thoroughly enjoyed Parallel and Intersect, this one is another winner with Elizabeth O Roark s brand of writing.
