Some Books Ago: Tempest by Julie Cross

Some Books Ago is a shout out to all those books published some years ago. I don't want you to forget them!

I've always thought it's never too late to read "old books" so, I still have Tempest on my TBR. I love the twist in the time travel plot, I've never read a book like this. And I really, really love the cover. 
Have you read this book? My friends loved it back then, but I never had time to read reviews, so I'm not sure if it's as amazing as it seems.

It was published on January 17th 2012 by St. Martin's Griffin



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.
