About the Author

Janine Caldwell was raised in the small San Francisco Bay Area town of Clayton. Four days after high school graduation, she attended California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo and graduated with a degree in English.

Janine now lives in Anthem, AZ with her husband and two sons. When she's not trying to stay cool, she's playing tennis, practicing yoga, banging on the drums, or reading. As a lifelong literature fanatic, she knew it was a matter of time before she'd become obsessed with writing her own work. With relatives like the Brothers Grimm and Anita Loos (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes), she hopes fantasy writing is in her DNA.

Books published by Janine include The Vortex Series: REMATCH, DOUBLE FAULT, DEUCE and VISITED, a YA coming-of-age fantasy.

Now living in an alternate reality because of Trent's meddling, Cassie and Trent are the only ones who can remember what happened previously, leaving Lorelei to become increasingly frustrated. Cassie is more confident in this life and back into tennis. She had a sweet new car, but many things have changed for the worse. Jeff, her old boyfriend, is still interested in her, her best friend Kelli is disappointed in her for moving in on the guy she likes, her brother Gavin misses his pseudo-older-brother Jeff, and her parents now fight non-stop because of her father's obsession with her tennis career. Cassie starts believing that Trent made a mistake by going back in time to change her destiny. Meanwhile, an old enemy resurfaces trying to locate the vortex, the source of Trent's powers. But what is he really after? When Trent discovers a secret that Cassie has been keeping from him, it looks like the last straw. Can they ever be happy again? Will Cassie ask the impossible of Trent? And what effect did the trip to Sedona have on Cassie?  Once again, the story is told from Cassie's and Trent's points-of-view. And again, a number of editing errors, especially incorrect word usage (e.g., passed for past-5 times!, you're for your, breaks for brakes, pouring for poring, plodding for plotting, lessoned for lessened, taught for taut, affects for effects). While there is a lot of action and character interaction, this is not my favorite in the series. But I can't wait to see what happens next! I received this book in return for an honest review.

Note: This review contains no spoilers The intensity of this series does not let up! In this second book of The Vortex trilogy, Trent and Cassie are reunited in this new timeline that Trent created when he changed the past. Sheesh....time travel can be so quirky! By the end of Rematch, Cassie remember her other life before Trent went back and changed the past. Whoa! How crazy was that! But, in this altered timeline, these two are far from living "normal" lives. Guess changing the past...again...has its consequences, as Trent and Cassie comes to find out. They face several obstacles and dangers as they try to "rebuild" their relationship in this alternate timeline. I gasped after each chapter wondering if and how these characters will overcome these obstacles that lie before them. I was intrigued with Cassie's predicament of having knowledge of both timelines...confusing, I know! Of course, Cassie can see the differences...how can she not! Whoa! On top of the dangers they face, Trent and Cassie also has to face their lives as teenagers. I turned each page with bated breath! Whoa! Janine Caldwell has again created this supernatural world where time travel has its consequences and rewards when tampering with the past. Double Fault is a suspenseful and thrilling ride through time that kept my head spinning!

Actual rating: 2.5 stars! *I received a copy of this from the author in exchange for an honest review I hate to say it, but I didn't like Double Fault anymore than the first book. I don't know what it is about this series, but I just can't get into it. It could be a case of It's not you, it's me. However, reading through my review for the first book, I know it's not just me. I really just don't like this series.. I just can't take much of what happens seriously. I still don't believe that Trent and Cassie have this forever kind of love, that they're soulmates. I think their relationship developed a little bit more in this one, but not by much. Everytime they talked about how much they love each other, I just laughed. It's still not the least bit authentic to me.  The characters didn't really improve much for me, except Cassie. In this book, she's dealing with memories of two different parallel lifetimes. That also means having to deal with not-so-awesome circumstances regarding friends and family. But, she's trying her best. Her best is just not good enough for this life she's living now. Trent, on the other hand, lost some points for me. Most of the book, his jealousy just turned me off. He acted ridiculous when it to Jeff and Cassie, especially near the end when Cassie was hurt. He couldn't dial down his jealousy to help her and be there for her. I really, really disliked him for that.  There was a little bit more with the secondary characters this time around, especially with Cassie's family and with The Grenades. I liked having those interactions with all of them, because the romance between the two main characters was not front and center. I hope there will be even more development with The Grenades in the third book especially, now that they know part of the truth surrounding Trent and Lorelei.  But, I still hated how there was barely any supernatural elements. Also, the whole showdown with Fox was so anti-climatic. Not to mention, it was so dreadfully and painfully obvious that he was the NY recruiter. That wasn't suspenseful at all, and I was so disappointed with it because I thought for sure I'd find out more about time-travel from Fox. But we still know nothing about Trent's abilities! I thought this sequel should have explored that more, not pay attention to the high school antics between the characters.  After reading Double Fault, I'm still uninterested in this storyline and these characters. I just don't care what happens to them. That ending didn't leave me wanting more, especially since I saw it coming miles away. There just wasn't enough in the first two books that left me invested to see what happens in the finale.
