Seconds aren’t like pennies. They can’t be saved in a jar and spent later. Fate seeps through cracks and shifts like fog. Pluck a second out of time or slip an extra one in, the consequences will change your life forever. Is the man you love really the man you think you know, or is there a version of your life in which he’s your enemy? If you didn’t know who or what you were before, would you take a chance on becoming that person again?
How about this cover, huh? It's bloody awesome! From the moment I read the above, I knew I just had to read this book. And now that I've finished it, all I can say is: Wow! It was so trippy. In a totally awesome way, BTW.

Roxanne is thrown into an impossible situation, caught between two men - Mason Merrick and Leonardo Kaysar. Two very different men that seem to despise each other, and are both very keen to convince her the other is the bad guy. There are some moments where you just have no idea where the hell she's going to end up. And even start to doubt both guys. Although I was kinda convinced who was good and who wasn't that good by about halfway through the book.

There were a few clues, but still enough doubt left to question your every thought. So you can imagine just how confused Roxanne is. Lol. I loved that things weren't always as they seemed. The concept of time being altered by wires that could be manipulated, was fascinating.

I read the first 100 pages over a few days, kept getting interrupted. But the rest of the book I pretty much read in one sitting last night. Honestly, it was worth it. The action didn't stop. Neither did the confusion and the total chaos of suspicion and doubt. When I got to the last 30 pages, I couldn't wait to read how it would all turn out... I was on the edge of my seat.

This book was excellent. And well, I'm totally sold on the SHOMI imprint. I will definitely be buying every one of these books. Not to mention, that the little idea I had for one of these is totally perculating now. ;)

Check it out, it's a very cool book!
