Live in the now, they say, but for Jenna Jenkins, the now sucks.

Her fiancé dumped her, and she's lacking the drive that might lead to a promotion at the eighties-themed cable station where she works. The only thing keeping her sane is her obsession with a brooding rock star, and an era, that died twenty-odd years ago. But then lightning strikes--literally--and sends her back to the year and the man she's loved her entire life. Jenna has no choice but to take action to save Tommy Seer, lead singer of The Wild Boys, from the tragic accident that only she knows will claim his life.

But the real Tommy Seer is very different from the one who's spent all this time starring in her favorite fantasies. As Jenna falls deeper into Tommy's world--under his spell all over again, only this time without the schoolgirl crush--she realizes that his death was no accident. Can she find a killer, prevent a murder, and save the man she loves without everyone thinking she's crazy?

And who thought shoulder pads were a good idea, anyway?

This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. It's an incredible story and very well written. I totally felt I was right there and part of the story. After a freak accident during a storm, Jenna Jenkins is transported back to 1987 where her all time rock star crush, Tommy Seer is still alive and on top of his game. Her quest is to stop his death (which all these years was assumed just an accident). Can she figure out what happens and who is to blame? Can she prevent it from happening? Can she fight her feelings for Tommy and the heartbreak she knows she will suffer? I recommend this book to anyone who wants something fun and enjoyable read.

I thought it started slow, until I realize not everyone lived thru the 80's with big hair, bright colors and would need details to appreciate it. Jenna's obsession with Tommy and his band, time travel and love, made for a good fun read.

I have fallen in love with this book! Such a wonderful and cute story <3 If you are an 80s child, or you are in love with the awesomeness that was the 80s, you'll love this book.  I found it on Amazon and got the kindle edition for free (getting the physical copy soon), so I decided to give it a go. That was a good decision! The characters are great, the setting is perfect, and the 80s references had me laughing for hours! Seriously, 80s fashion was hilarious, thank god I was too young in the 80s for the full-on insanity lol. Our MC, Jenna Jenkins, 35 years old, dumped by her fiance, and to deal with all the chaos in her life, she surrounds herself with her adolescent obsession with Tommy Seer. Tommy is the lead singer of the "The Wild Boys", an 4-member British 80s rock band that was all the rage until Tommy, at the height of his career, died 20 years ago in a car accident. One thing leads to another, and *woop woop*, TIME TRAVEL!!!  Yes, I have a thing for time travel! I am a geek after all ;) So Jenna travels back in time and she finds herself working with Tommy! At first, she thinks it is a dream, and tries to get all fan-girly on him, only to be super surprised when things don't go her usual way (yes, she dreams about Tommy A LOT) "and since it was her dream, it was about time she started acting the way she'd be too afraid to act in real life. Otherwise, what was the point? why dream at all?" Once she realizes that it is NOT a dream, she takes it upon herself to try and change the future.  Jenna had to go through a lot.. and amazingly, there was lots of growth and self-discovery along her journey. One thing I really enjoyed is that this book doesn't only talk about Jenna's story, but also to a lot of us fangirls who paint these perfect personalities and stories of our celebrity crushes - forgetting that they are normal humans after all, with complex personalities and their own issues to deal with. Its easy to forget that those celebrities have specific personas to play publicly, and it doesn't necessarily mean that this is who they are.  I highly recommend this book.. What more can one ask for? It is cute, funny, witty, and SHOULDER PADS!! And there were lots of great quotes too!

3.5 stars. First half quite dull and second half very good really - worth reading just for that!

I really enjoyed this fun romance, mystery, scifi story. It was very satisfying. I would have given it 5 stars but there are some editing errors. I will read more by this author.
