And she finds herself falling for him, into an otherworldly, time-crossed romance.

What I Liked: Timeless by Alexandra Monir is an unforgettable love story between two people from different times who meet and fall in love. I love romance novels where you can feel the chemistry between the man and woman and know they were meant to be together. I thought Michele was a very strong character who endured a lot and was lost without her mother. Michele has been dreaming of a guy all her life but she never understood why until she meets him in the past and falls in love. This is the first book in a series. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
What I Didn’t Like: I would have liked more detail on Michele’s family history especially about her father. Also, I would have loved to know who discovered the ability to time travel and how they were able to. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was very romantic and sad.
Recommended For: Any reader who enjoys a good romance novel and is a hopeless romantic.
Avoid If: You don’t love romance novels and don’t believe in true love.
