Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book for review from Wildfire Marketing Solutions and the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".The stunning conclusion to Parallel.
Someone has torn them apart in the past, and she plans to do it again…
As Nick and Quinn piece together the truth about the life they once shared, they discover it was much deeper and darker than they ever imagined. In order to keep history from repeating, Quinn will need to master her unusual gifts—but that means admitting to herself and to Nick why she stopped using them in the first place.
He may never forgive her when he learns the truth, but Quinn is running out of options—because the clock is ticking, and it’s no longer just her life that hangs in the balance.
Quinn Stewart still wonders what’s a dream and what’s reality. Nick Reilly has me thinking, “does he or doesn’t he?” Time is a big theme here. One thing it shows is how it affects you as well as those around you. It has me wondering about its affects on our expectations. This book however seemed to have more questions because every time you turn around something happens that just creates one more puzzle piece.
One thing is evident and that is that you can’t start this series with the second book. You will be lost so it’s best to start at the beginning. You will want to get to know the characters as well as the situation they find themselves in. I found this much more steamy and the author teases her readers a lot more. This series shows how creative Ms. O’Roark is. There’s a saying, “you just can’t make this stuff up” but they haven’t met this author.
This is a story that engages the mind. It forces you to really look at what we believe and adds in something that you might say “no way!” Everything seems so realistic that it just might be possible – after all, haven’t you ever had a déjà vu moment? I still couldn’t think of it as a time travel trope though. It’s more like living a previous life and you’re starting to remember what you experienced at that point in time. The romance is a perk but not what I felt was important. I loved thinking what I would do should I be in Quinn’s position. And the ending just left me wondering what other possibilities may be coming my way – especially when it comes to this Parallel universe. So make sure to check out the “present” that’s left for the reader.
Time is a cruel thief…unless you can steal it back.
As a neurologist, Nick Reilly believes everything can be explained by science.
But he can't explain her—Quinn Stewart, an irresistible patient who knows things about him she shouldn't. And insists that at some point, she was his wife.
Something else he can't explain: he remembers her too. Quinn wakes each morning remembering new details of the life they shared—and she's desperate for the dreams to stop. Because with each one, she finds herself craving what she had with Nick more than the life—and the fiancé—she already has.
Nick and Quinn share an attraction neither can deny, but one that might destroy everything.
Just like it did before.
Elizabeth O’Roark lives in Washington, DC with her 3 children. After many years spent writing scintillating brochures about amniocentesis and heart surgery, she is thrilled to have found a job that allows her to just make s*** up.
