I don't see the author improving their ability to tell a compelling story with out plot holes, poor dialogue, and gratuitous sex scenes. So, no, I don't see the sequel in my future.

I'm not really looking forward to reading the next one if it has as much sex scenes as this one.

A sequel would be welcome but with less erotic scenes and more of the sci fi.

No... Since I could not finish this book. Just something about the writing for me didn't catch my attention.

Definitely not going to read the next book. I am not hooked, didn't get a chance to care about the characters much. I also don't like the romance. The book should have dealt with more of the time travel issues and cultural differences. And the conversations could have been written way better.

If romance would have been better dealt with, and lesser sex scenes.. then would you have liked it more?

I definitely would have. I liked the premise of the book, and even liked the PhD research talk .. I wish the sci-fi aspect had been more explored, and the culture differences were more explored. The other thing that could have been addressed in more detail was the effect of time travel on twins and why they were drawn to each other's times. I also wouldn't mind the sex scenes if it perhaps highlighted a different way looking at sexuality and how people in this century viewed it differently and slowly opened up to other points of view , instead of just describing what seemed like the fantasies of twenty first century teenage boy.

I don't think so, I was really disappointed with how this one turned out. It started out strong, but fell flat in the end. I'm not big on the twin twist at the end, either, so I don't really have much interest in seeing where that leads.

Agree that it was a disappointing second half. Maybe some more work is needed before making next part.

That’s kind of how I feel. It’s not a book I’m going to seek out, but if it pops up on this site, I may read it.

I am not able to find a single person who may have liked the second part. Doesn't the author get similar feedback before publishing..

I think book two is worth a try. I mean why not? Hopefully it will be good.
