Waiting on Wednesday

Tempest by Julie Cross
(St. Martin's Griffin/January 17, 2012)

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.

Yeah, yeah, I know, this comes out this month! But that doesn't mean I can't impatiently pine for it anyway, right? haha Sounds like an adventure with some romance and action--a favorite combination of mine! Hopefully not too heart-breaking though; I've read quite a few books that have been tugged on my heart strings lately!

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

This sounds AMAZING. Time travel, I love it. I hope it has some crazy paradoxes in it.
