    I didn't remember the first one so I was very confused until about 4% in. Then I slowly started to get a handle on things... But I knew that I enjoyed the romance and the characters in the first book, so I wanted to stick with it. 
   Side note: I am also very confused because I got this on netgalley, but goodreads says it was published two years ago...
    I was glad that I stuck with it because I got very into the story at about 20%. I liked meeting Ryan's friends in the future. Eden's transition was hard to watch because suddenly she was in the spotlight, in a new time, knowing hardly no one, and they had Ryan locked up awaiting trial. 
   Peg was my favorite of Ryan's friends, and he was a good friend to Eden, helping her adjust and helping her plan for her and Ryan to be back together. 
   The love story was still present, but it took a backseat to her planning, adjustment and the action of trying to free Ryan after he's sentenced to work in the moon mines for the rest of this life. 
    The ending was interesting and fit, but not sure if they will have more of a story, or if that was the final piece. I think I am okay either way... 

Bottom Line: Slow to start but became a nice

My question to you, my lovely readers:
Would you time travel to be with your boy/girlfriend?
