Unique Storyline and Likable Characters
In her latest book, Ms. Adams offers a little something to every reader through a story dealing with themes raging from sci-fi to time travel to futuristic. While this makes for an intriguing read that keeps you guessing it does lead to a bit of confusion at times as the story moves from one fantastical element to the next. Thankfully, even when I'm confused, there's a cast of characters that are likable and keep me invested in the outcome of the story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Lilly has felt lost and alone since the death of her mother and has been waiting for death. The bombing of the place she works gives her what she wants until she wakes up during medieval times after being rescued by the sexy and heroic Gabe who's immediately drawn to her but has secrets of his own. Lilly discovers she's a pawn in a futuristic plan to kill those in power during this time period which puts her in close proximity to the mysterious Gabe and have her rethinking a future she never thought she'd have. Lilly is sweet and loyal but naive and flighty when she gets lost in her thoughts. She engenders feelings of protectiveness in all the men brought back in time and this had me wishing I was in here place.
Gabe comes from a time in the future where genetic enhancements are the norm which has made him a super soldier. His senses are enhanced and he's looked up to as what every soldier aspires to be. He thinks nothing of his abilities though beyond what Lilly will feel when she discovers the truth about him. He's a quiet man immediately drawn to Lilly who wants nothing more than to keep her safe and make her happy. Gabe is the perfect romantic hero saying all the right things and burning up the sheets with the unworldly Lilly.
The author realistically and vividly depicted medieval times to draw you into the story early on. The reason for bringing these individuals back in time results in bigger truths being revealed that lead to ramifications for the future. The sci-fi part of the story is intriguing but feels separate from the character's time in the past and will make for a thrilling basis for any future stories. The secondary characters are immensely likable with their brotherly interactions and I long to see more of them in the future. From start to finish this is a story full of intriguing themes and a sweet and sexy romance between a perfectly matched couple and fans of many genres will be drawn to it.
