Review: Many things are in upheaval in this addition of Out of Time. Qasim and Rhys lives are thrown for a loop when a jump turns bad. With time running out both men struggle finding out answers while seemingly growing closer to the other.

Interesting story with a lot of twists and turns around every corner. I was fascinated with how Rhys and Qasim handled different aspects of the questions as well as Qasim’s past.

I liked the story and the characters throughout as the story progressed. I felt as though I was there with the men as traversed through what was going on and the subsequent answers to some questions.

Good read.

Blurb: An Out of Time Novel

What began with a dead intruder and a missing scientist quickly becomes the most perplexing case of Detective Inspector Jacob Ofori’s career. Nothing about it makes sense, from the incredibly advanced technology found on the intruder to the scientist’s mysterious workplace, the Temporal Research Institute. Jacob’s gut tells him the TRI is hiding something, and the questions keep piling up: Who would abduct Sanders? What is the strange gate in his basement laboratory? How does it connect to similar gates in the TRI?

TRI engineer Kit Rafferty only wanted one night with the sexy older policeman, but Kit’s mouth tends to run away with him when he gets excited, and nothing gets him more excited than cutting-edge tech—like the intruder’s cybernetic eye. Suddenly Kit is pulled into the investigation—and into a relationship that could jeopardize both of their lives. Kit hates lying to Jacob, but he cannot reveal what really goes on at the TRI—time travel. Faced with time-jumping criminals but unable to share that knowledge with Jacob, Kit turns to a man who knows time travel firsthand: Janos Nagy.

Review: This was a fantastic read. DI Jacob gets a case where there is a murder but as the investigation begins it quickly is revealed that is anything but normal. Kit is an engineer at TRI. He’s very good at his job and his mentor was the missing Sanders. These two meet when the police start questioning the staff at TRI.

Kit ultimately gives the police a clue by accident that leads to even more questions and revelations, that some do not believe. The hunt for a deceptive killer leads to a revelation that shocks most of the world.

Great characters, hot romance yet tense at times, a wonderful investigation that is detailed thoroughly. I loved this story so much. It was brilliantly written with twists and turns throughout. I didn’t even suspect who the culprit was until they were almost revealed. 

This book keeps you on your toes while it entertains at the same time. I can’t wait to see what else awaits in this series.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Sam had decided that he needed a dog seeing as he lived in the middle of nowhere Colorado. He just had not expected to leave the shelter with a cute dog and make it home to find a naked man wearing the dog’s collar. Philip was on holiday and got caught by the dog pound, while he was in his dog form. Talk about a surprise for Sam, although I have to say that I do hope that Philip actually stays with Sam, because he is such a goofball.

This was a blast to read, although it was a bit depressing in parts of it. I wish that it had been longer with a bit more to it. I enjoyed it quite a bit though and would definitely recommend it. It was funny as hell and the characters were quirky and a joy to read about.

Blurb: Badly wounded and on the run from his WWII Hungarian brigade, Janos Nagy stumbles through a temporal gateway to the future. Suddenly stranded in Manchester, England, 2041, Janos wants answers about a crazy world he doesn’t recognize.

Dieter Schmidt, flamboyant historian/linguist for the Temporal Research Institution has those answers, but the TRI is a neutral entity, set up to verify historical events under a strict code of noninterference. That doesn’t stop Dieter from taking Janos under his protection. Trust doesn’t come easy to Janos, who came from a time when revealing his secrets could get him killed, but the two men slowly build a tentative friendship with a possibility for more. But Janos’s continued presence in the future and Dieter’s persistence raise questions about the limits of the noninterference policy.

Since the rules have been bent once, one agent sees no reason why he can’t push them further, and he travels back to 1914 to make a few changes of his own. Under Janos’s guidance, Dieter must leap back in time to stop the rogue agent from changing the past and risking everyone’s future—if he can survive history.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Janos a soldier is on the run and stumbles through a gateway to a world he doesn’t know. I truly felt for Jonas as he tried to come to grips with the abrupt changes. Where he was from was considered a death sentence to show interest in another man so Jonas keeps his feelings hid.

I really liked the details about the time era in this book. They were well written and accurate. The thing I didn’t understand was why the book is labeled Science Fiction. The only things I found that applied to that label was the pod cars and the time travel that’s it. I was expecting to see descriptions of exotic far off worlds but that didn’t happen.

Dieter is a historian/linguist for the Temporal Research Institution from 2041. When Jonas and Dieter meet they get off to a somewhat rocky start as they have trust issues. That doesn’t stop Dieter from taking Jonas under his wing and the two slowly grow closer as the story progresses even as Dieter has his obstacles to overcome. I could totally understand the both of them being leery of one another considering the circumstances.

The time travel scenes were intriguing to read the differences between then and the future. To see how much things have changed throughout time. Really enjoyed this story but was disappointed by the lack of science fiction in it.

Well written and interesting.
