Week 52 Reviews: Time Between Us, Time After Time

From Goodreads:
Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet: she lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco. But Bennett has the unique ability to travel through time and space, which brings him into Anna’s life, and with him a new world of adventure and possibility.

As their relationship deepens, the two face the reality that time may knock Bennett back to where he belongs, even as a devastating crisis throws everything they believe into question. Against a ticking clock, Anna and Bennett are forced to ask themselves how far they can push the bounds of fate, what consequences they can bear in order to stay together, and whether their love can stand the test of time.

From Goodreads: 
Calling Anna and Bennett’s romance long distance is an understatement: she’s from 1995 Chicago and he’s a time traveler from 2012 San Francisco. The two of them never should have met, but they did. They fell in love, even though they knew they shouldn't. And they found a way to stay together, against all odds. 

It’s not a perfect arrangement, though, with Bennett unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits, skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna in hers. They each are confident that they’ll find a way to make things work...until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen (and certainly never expected to). Will the decisions he makes from that point on cement a future he doesn't want?

Told from Bennett’s point of view, Time After Time will satisfy readers looking for a fresh, exciting, and beautifully-written love story, both those who are eager to find out what’s next for Time Between Us's Anna and Bennett and those discovering their story for the first time.

My Review:
I utterly loved these books! So great, and sad, the first told from Anna, the second from Bennett, and yeah, they just come together in just an awesome story, one that was really enjoyable, the ups, and the downs, and the sweetness of their romance!

So the first book was the mystery of what was going on with Bennett, for Anna, because she didn't know, until enough things added up that he had to tell her. And yeah, finding out your kinda-maybe boyfriend is a time traveller, well, not the most common of things!

And their romance had a few issues, like she's from the past, and he's from the future, and that there's rules on his powers, rules that are more explained in his book, as he tests his powers out more, and figures out more things about them, to save lives, which is pretty cool!

These were real people, and in pretty spectacular circumstances, and them being together again, was started by a letter from the Anna of his time, which is both romantic, and incredibly sad, because older Anna had time with Bennett, but ultimately, wasn't with him, so yeah, glad that these books dealt with that, too!

I really enjoyed these books, and I can't wait to read what Tamara Ireland Stone writes next!
