The year is 2009. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy… he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies – nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors – it’s just harmless fun.
That is… until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years to 2007, but this is not like his previous time jumps. Now he’s stuck in 2007 and can’t get back to the future.

Desperate to somehow return to 2009 to save Holly but unable to return to his rightful year, Jackson settles into 2007 and learns what he can about his abilities.

But it’s not long before the people who shot Holly in 2009 come looking for Jackson in the past, and these “Enemies of Time” will stop at nothing to recruit this powerful young time-traveler. Recruit… or kill him.
Piecing together the clues about his father, the Enemies of Time, and himself, Jackson must decide how far he’s willing to go to save Holly… and possibly the entire world.

  Though the book was not for me, I adore this cover. It is so pretty I may just get a copy of the book to just keep it on my shelf for eye-candy.  I don't see how they get the cover models in that position anyhow. It must be difficult. Yet the cover is just that drop dead geourgous, fall to the ground, kinda cover.

 Yes the cover is one of the prettier one for 2012, yet it doesn't yet over do the cover of Fever which I am highly anticipating. I mean who doesn't want the sequel to Wither.   I can't wait to see how that series continues but on this one- I wouldn't recommend it minus the lovely cover.      

    I got three pages into this book and what I expected  to be an amazing read ended up being a book I  just could't get into. I think what turned me off the most was it was written in Male perspective and I am not one to really want to get into a guys head. So halfway through this book didn't speak to me in any way what so ever. So I am glad I didn't dish out my 15 dollars and buy it from Wal- Mart because of the gorgeous cover.
The plot itself was intresting but it didn't captivate my attention like I was seeking. Maybe if it was the girl, Holly, going back in time to save Jackson, I might have liked it but then again, its wasn't whispering words to me.  

  So this one didn't work miracles and I couldn't get into Julies writing. Maybe the next person who gets this ARC will enjoy it. Or atleast five times better than I ever did.
