Book Review: Until We Meet Again

Title Until We Meet Again

Author Renee Collins

Release Date November 3, 2015

They exist in two different centuries, but their love defies time

Cassandra craves drama and adventure, so the last thing she wants is to spend her summer marooned with her mother and stepfather in a snooty Massachusetts shore town. But when a dreamy stranger shows up on their private beach claiming it's his own—and that the year is 1925—she is swept into a mystery a hundred years in the making.

As she searches for answers in the present, Cassandra discovers a truth that puts their growing love—and Lawrence's life—into jeopardy. Desperate to save him, Cassandra must find a way to change history…or risk losing Lawrence forever.

Review

It seems like a sweet romance was just what I needed.

When I first started reading, I was worried about the slow pace of the book. Sometimes my attention wanders if a story doesn't immediately grab me. However, Until We Meet Again did pick up its pace and pull me in. It just took a few chapters to get there.

The story is told in two points of view, Cassandra's and Lawrence's. Unfortunately, I found Cassandra to be less than ideal. She seemed very self-centered to me. Even more so than the typical teenage girl she's supposed to be. Her melodrama could have easily killed the book. However, Lawrence is a peach and redeems the story.

The time travel aspect was... interesting, I guess? It wasn't a make or break aspect for me. It was just simply part of the story. Does that make sense? Anyway, I do like how the book ended. If it had ended differently, I might have knocked it down a star.

Until We Meet Again was a wonderfully written sweet and fluffy romance (with a gorgeous! cover).
