Summary
  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.

Where I got It: An Early Reviewers copy from the Library Thing , Release date : January 17, 2012

What I gave It: 5 outta 5!! I Loved it!

My Thoughts:
I was amazed how fast this book had me hooked into the story, it had me by the first chapter! I love that its so original, unlike so many overdone concepts that keep being released over and over again! Well written, intriguing, and even heartbreaking this book has it ALL! I cannot wait to read the next book in this trilogy and I think it's going to make a fantastic action packed movie! The ONLY bad thing is the fact that this book isn't even out yet, so it will be a long wait for the next one in the series!
