My overall rating was 2 out of 4 stars. I liked the tropical setting the most. I disliked the sexual relationships the least, partly because they were not hinted at in any blurbs I read (and they were rather blatant not to be at least mentioned) and partly because they did not fit into the story in my opinion. I would not recommend this book due to the sexual content. I didn't care for the book myself, but I saw others likes it.
I'm curious as to why you think it didn't fit (genuinely curious). Was it that you thought sexuality in general didn't fit, or that specific relationship?

This book is good but in the middle part till the next following chapters seemed too sexual as for me. I would rate this book as 2 out 4.

I liked the story and the sci-fy aspects of the book. I did find that the sex scenes were a bit too much and didn't advance the plot.

I have just finished my own review, not yet published. I really loved the storyline in this novel. The erotic scenes were a bit much towards the end so it's an adult novel. I had fun reading.

I really loved this entire book. From the time travel to the romance. It was a really amazing book.

I gave it 2 out of 4. I felt that this book was really more of a detailed outline than it was a book. Everything happened really quickly without any detail. Things either worked perfectly for Jennifer or caused a crisis that was immediately fixed by Jennifer. As everyone else mentioned, the second half was basically all about sex. What I found odd was that it basically happened between one page and the next. There was absolutely no mention of it in the beginning then all of the sudden it was an erotica - and not a very well written one. I wish it were either better written and more rounded or that I could read the brief outlines of the next books so I could get the story line completed without having to read the unnecessary parts.
Life is your own story. Sometimes you need an off-ramp and that's where books come in! :techie-studyingbrown: :techie-reference:

I think it was a really interesting story, heavy on the romance, (which i personally loved). I thought it was a great concept and it did not dissapoint.

This is a good sci-fi thriller. But the sexual contents are not appropriate for young readers. However, I enjoyed the theme.
A joke is to entertain people. If it fails to do so, it's something else!
