Overview

Adeline doesn't feel she belongs in her own time, but can bad boys from the past be trusted?

Adeline Savoy had hoped that the move west from Cambridge to Hollywood with her single dad would mean they'd finally bond like a real family, but all she got was a father too busy with his new female friends and his passion for acting to really see her.

Instead she finds herself getting attached to Faye, the divorcee hair dresser she befriends when she travels back in time to 1955. Plus Faye has a hottie, James Dean-esque, bad-boy brother who has Adeline's heart all aflutter. But bad boys from the past can be dangerous.

Is it possible that Adeline really does belong in her own time and that maybe the right boy lives as close as next door?

    Like Clockwork is a companion novel to Elle Strauss' Clockwise s

    Like Clockwork is a companion novel to Elle Strauss' Clockwise series. Instead of following Casey and Nate around in the 1800's...we get to go back in time to 1955 with Adeline.

    Sixteen year old Adeline has recently moved out to sunny Hollywood from Cambridge. Her dad wants to dive into acting and figured this would be the best place to get his feet wet. Adeline is hoping that they might be able to repair their broken father-daughter relationship. But from the looks of his flirting with the ladies from his acting class…that is the last thing on his mind.

    And now that they have moved out to Hollywood, Adeline meets new people, Faye and Howard, when she time trips back to 1955. Faye is everything Adeline could hope for in a love interest for her dad...instead of the fake silicone women he flirts with back in the present. Faye is sweet and kind, and Adeline thinks the world of her. Howard on the other hand is a James Dean look alike and completely wrong for Adeline. Unfortunately he is all she thinks about and wants. Could this bad boy really be right for her? Or is someone from the present time the one her heart longs for?

    Adeline’s life in Like Clockwork is not so different from Casey’s in the first 2 books of the series. Both time trips, both accidently take people back with them, and both expose someone from the past to the present. But it’s the time periods that each girl trip back to that makes each of their stories their own. Honestly? I think I enjoyed Adeline’s story more. I have always loved the 50’s in books and movies…so I think that is what made me love it so much.

    Adeline is a cute character that I just gravitated towards. Poor girl is hurting for her father’s affection and would love for him to pay her some attention. Of course, she wants to go under the radar when it comes to her school and friends…but when it comes to her dad; she is seeking a relationship again with him. Oh, then there is Marco…absolutely adorable. I thought he was just too cute for words. Yes, Howard is movie star worthy and a bad boy, but I didn’t feel that attraction that Adeline thought she felt towards him.

    Like Clockwork is a wonderful, quick read that is perfect for any reader of any age. I think the readers will be pleasantly surprised with the way things turn out for everyone in the end. I had a smile on my face when I finished the book and I am crossing my fingers for more adventures with Adeline. You cannot go wrong with a book by Elle Strauss!
