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.
Until We Meet Again first caught my attention because of its alluring and stunning cover – and then I found out that it’s about a romance that transcends time. Consider me a complete cheeseball, but I’m a sucker for these types of stories. Wait for it, it gets better. There’s a time-travel aspect, and it goes back to the roaring twenties, aka my favorite time period! Of course, I was hoping against hope that Until We Meet Again would become a favorite for 2015. While it didn’t end up being a favorite, it certainly comes close.
BEST ROMANCE I’VE READ IN A LONG TIME
I’m going to come forth and say it: the romance is a central idea in Until We Meet Again. Despite popular opinion, this worked out in my favor because I’m a huge romance junkie.
The romance is prominent throughout the entire story, and I was enamored by the love between Cassandra and Lawrence. They develop an attraction rather quickly, but it didn’t feel like insta-love to me. I felt that their romance was genuine and perhaps happened faster than others, but they’re more of those couples that just connect on a deep level and just click.
The ending really pulled at my heartstrings and the romance is just so well done and beautiful. The romance in Until We Meet Again is the best romance I’ve read in a long time.
FUN TIME TRAVEL-Y STUFF
I highly enjoyed the way Collins wrote about how the characters explore the time-travel. There’s a real curiosity that shines through among Cassandra and Lawrence, and even the way Collins explains the time-travel phenomena is concise and not confusing at all. I’m also delighted to say that the 1920s atmosphere is a nice touch to the story.
Can Until We Meet Again get any more awesome? It has literally everything I want in a story – including a little mystery fun. There is, in fact, a bit of murder mystery in this story and I think it adds just the perfect amount of intrigue without the story getting too cluttered. Readers will be flipping pages like wildfire!
ROMANTIC, EXCITING, AND FUN
Until We Meet Again is really anything I could ask for in a YA novel. It’s purely entertaining, has a romance that’s to die for, and an excitingly thrilling murder mystery. If you’ve been craving a time-travel romance, pick this one up – you won’t regret it.
