Lucy and Owen are both living in NYC. He is there with his dad. She lives in the same apartment building . Their paths cross when they get stuck into an elevator.

After they get out, and the rest of the city is with out power. They get to know one another and spend the day learning about each other. During the day she tells Owen all the places she would love to travel too. He also tells her of the places he would like to see.

They  both end up moving but they still keep in contact. They even end up meeting for 1 day and chatting again. They are both attracted to each other, and both still think of each other.

This book was realistic and a cute romance. There were many missed connections or even chances they could have emailed instead of post cards. I think the ending was realistic , and that they both grew and changed through out the book . I loved that they both went somewhere.

Book Review= C+/ B-

Dee ends up on tour with Matt Finch . Matt makes Reagan feel things . There is a lot of banter between both of them. He really wants to date her. Dee and Matt are both with the same music label & they are fake dating.

During the trip , Reagan gets her cast off from her bad relationship before . Reagan is also taking pictures of the tour . Many things come to light during the trip, and things are on the bus aren't easy, and many relationships are tested.

What a beautiful summer story of changes for both girls. I love that this book was about friendship. I do love that family aspect of the story. I loved seeing the growth of Reagan and Dee through the bus ride. The summer for both girls was full of possibilities , and their choices are open for them. I adore Matt Finch and his songs are swoon worthy. I admit that this book made me cry through out it.

Gray and company are trying to find other rebels. Gray has feelings for Emma & Bree . He is more real with Bree.

Gray grows up and faces many different challenges . He also meets up with a different group, and also with Forgeries. During their travels to different his perceptions change about things, and come to some realizations.

This book did feel like a second book in a series. It also took me a while to get back into this world, and it took me a lot longer to read this book than usual. I grew to love Bree more, and she is a kick butt girl. I was glad to see what happened in this world, and want to see the conclusion.

Sarren is on the lose and causing trouble. He has many things in store Kanin, Allison, and Jackal.

Jackal is the voice of reason though out the book. Kanin is still the master vampire watching over his kids, and he will do what he can to save the humans from the rabids.

Allison has the biggest surprise by Sarren. They are still on the trail to catching up , and taking care of business. Many things happen in Chicago.

This book was such a great end to the series. Jackal made this book . Allison is still strong, but she doesn't always ask questions first. This book had my feelings all over , and there were so many twists and turns in this book.

Forward a couple years later, she is going to school with the boy ( Ethan). He loves playing card games with her. He also knows that she is different. They both know a homeless man who they have nicknamed Ben Kenobi. He helps them out in big ways.

Prenna  has to wear these glasses , and she has to take these pills. They also have to obey some very important time travel rules. In the future, its not a very nice world. Many things happened from 1 day in time.
Prenna has feelings for Ethan, but she knows that she can't act on them. She also has to report in , and keep her distance since she is from the future. She also tries to solve the mystery about the date. She also comes to a realization about some of the rules. She also finds out some secrets.

This book was great about the time travel and the effects that one person can make and do damage to the future. The message came about differently , but the way it did come about did make sense. I loved that this brought up the effects from the future whether digital , or global. Overall I enjoyed this book , and loved that there was some romance. I also enjoyed it being a stand alone.

This weekend is life changing in many ways for both of them. She gets help, and even finds some romance with D'Arcy.

This book had action, romance, trust issues, and also many family issues that came to light. I adored the realness of this book, and the tech was cool. I didn't know what to expect from this book. I loved the world building, and the characters. I loved the conversations between Sol & D'Arcy. Sol was smart, creative thinker who loved her family and would do anything for them. I thought that this book was so much better than I thought it would be. I enjoyed the romance.

Mary Crawford is working for a PR firm. She is married to Wade, and taking a screen writing class. During this time , she finds out that her husband is cheating on her. She also finds out that the business isn't doing very well.

She ends up getting to know Jackie , who screwed with her husband. She is also trying to connect all the dots between Jackie and her husband Wade business. Throughout the book, we see her memories of James ( who she went through a horrible incident with). She also has a couple make out sessions with Tommy. Tommy and Jackie also happen to be the restaurant many times.

This book is interesting, but then I didn't know what to expect. I found Mary through out the book to be questioning many things in her life. It was nice to see her with some girl friends. I could relate to being busy. I also thought the screenplay with in a book a different twist.
