Never Leave Me.

After the disappearance of her father and sister, Ellen Creighton wants nothing to do with the holy water they were seeking, even if it would cure her deadly genetic disease–until a friend helps her recognize its true power in this suspenseful, time-crossing romantic adventure.

My Thoughts:

The whole concept of this series is fascinating and trippy to me. Time travel itself is fascinating and trippy to me. AND YET, Jody Hedlund somehow makes me forget how crazy it all is. I’m in. Start to finish. One wild ride to the next.

Get in the car, loser, we’re going time-hopping.

I finished and I still have so many questions and I just want to know how all of my friends are doing. Because that’s what these characters feel like–friends. (The good characters, anyway.) And it is because they feel like friends that I, as the reader, wanted to shake Ellen and Harrison and ask them to get their acts together because they killed me. As dearly as I loved them, they made me want to throw this book across the room or out a window.

Friends-to-more isn’t my favorite trope and it’s largely because I have little patience for all of the drama that can come with it. The dramatic irony of literally every living soul knowing what’s going on except the two people involved. I’m just a girl, standing in front of two fictional people, asking them to get a clue.

But I will say that Hedlund redeemed my frustration beautifully. I’d been looking forward to Harrison and Ellen’s story since I caught snippets of it in the first book of the series, and I was very pleased as I read the last page. I definitely recommend this read for fans of the first book in the series! Or fans of time travel reads. Or friends-to-more fans. If you like books, you should probably just read this one. That feels like the best course of action, friends.

I received a complimentary copy of this novel from the publisher. All expressed opinions belong to me.

Book Boyfriend:

Harrison. Look, I already knew from the first book in the series that I was going to be a faithful member of the Harrison Fan Club. He has an accent. He dresses well. He’s insanely intelligent. And he loves his lady fiercely. I mean, the sheer dedication of this (albeit fictional) man is enough to admire all on its own. We love Harrison, and Harrison thinks we’re lovely, but he loves Ellen. That’s an arrangement I think we can all live with.

  1. I have this one checked out from the library and have been looking forward to it since I finished the first book 🙂 Harrison is great and a great book boyfriend, I don’t have to read the second book to know that 😉 Thanks for sharing!
