Kylie Martin is the feisty former beauty queen who is drawn almost immediately to the bad boy of rock n roll, one Jesse Winslow. Their 'accidental' first meeting becomes the catalyst to a burgeoning friendship borne out of the necessity to share their feelings after they've met with their mutual therapist, Dr. Stoddard. Neither planned on this new relationship and it was pure joy watching as they realize this could be so much more.
At the crux of this story are the incredible regressions that Dr. S performs on both Jesse and Kylie. They are taken back in time through a hypnosis of sorts and it is soon realized that perhaps their lives have intersected multiple times over the last few thousand years! Something neither is privy to, due to doctor/patient privilege. I was transfixed by this method of therapy and what comes out of these sessions had both my mind and heart rattled, right along with Kylie and Jesse. The author beautifully describes what they are going through, both past and present, and it's as if you are right there in the doctor's office, taking notes with Dr. S. Such a unique way to add incredible depth to this story, I craved more of these sessions with each new chapter.
As both Kylie and Jesse live out their present lives, they gain a strength from each other that they didn't have before. I loved that Kylie wanted to be her own woman, bucking the beauty queen stigma and working out to be healthy and happy. She didn't need to be a size 0 and Jesse loved every curve. I adored that about him. He accepts his girl just the way she is and Kylie in turn, loves the real Jesse, not the rock n roll persona the public sees. She gives him the drive to want to be better and wow...the lyrics written with Kylie as his muse is nothing short of amazing. I truly adored them both.
As the story unfolds, we are constantly reminded of the concept of fate. Were Kylie and Jesse destined to find each other? Was their journey already written? Or can they set their own course of chance? I will say that I thoroughly enjoyed finding out all the answers, even if some were harder to accept than others. Each character is expertly placed and there are plenty of twists and turns to keep this adventure captivating. In addition, there are scads of light-hearted moments with Kylie and her NJ atttitude at the forefront. She keeps everyone on their toes and I couldn't help but laugh out loud with them. She tells it like it is on more than once occasion and I was cheering her on every step of the way. There are also a few familiar secondary characters that were great to see again, along with some newer ones who add the right touch when needed. Being surrounded by the right people is something these two never take for granted.
This is not your usual kind of romance. It is one to be savored for its richness in detail and the ease of attraction between Kylie and Jesse. My goodness, they are so comfortable with each other right from the start and you can feel that relaxed state almost immediately. It sets the pace and helps when things don't always go according to plan.
Hold on tight. Love on the Edge of Time will leave you stunned. It is in a league of its own and has left me practically breathless.
5 solid stars!
I'm typing through tears pouring down my face my heart hurts and loves at the same time. I wish I could explain my emotions right now, I'm a hot mess. I lived and breathe these characters lives along with them. It was a wonderful combination of old and new characters in the mix. A must read emotionally riveting original love story. I said it in the past and I will say it again, you are my female version of Nicholas Sparks!
