I managed to read the final chapter of this lovely book before I passed out drooling on my pillow, the reading lamp still on. It felt like it was a thousand degrees in our house, the AC taking forever to finally work its magic. My middle kid was irritable and woke me from my stupor asking for another tuck in because she was too hot and couldn't turn her brain off. As I stumbled back to bed for the second time, I was sticky, and bloated, and sex was the farthest thing from my mind. Yet, when my fella returned from tucking in our almost-four-year-old son who is finally starting to spend at least half the night in his own bed, I suggested a quickie. A short and sweet little romp with the lights off because life is short, and it's harder than ever to stay connected to what matters. Like extra tuck ins. And sweaty sex before you get interrupted again by little footsteps. I blame Hannah McKinnon for this minor revelation.
Time After Time was the perfect start to my summer reading. It's playful, nostalgic, sexy and clever. As a child of the eighties, I loved all of the nods to great moments in the pop culture of my pubescent years. I loved all of the questions this book asks, all of the what ifs we torture ourselves with when life becomes too complicated with the stuff that doesn't really matter so much. There were real, sweet moments of connection between the delightful characters McKinnon has concocted and I grew attached to these characters within the first couple of chapters, feeling their failures and frustrations as sharply as I shared their victories and their steamy love scenes. I was also struck by the parallels between protagonist Haley's past relationships and my own. I too have dated the controller, the narcissist, and the really sweet guy and I've walked away from all of those to find my own version of happily ever after. Haley's an every gal who even us queer and quirky gals can relate to, which is no small feat for chick lit to serve up.
Time After Time will be an easy book to share with my own circle of gals who love a good, light read. It was the perfect balance of frivolous fun and touching poignancy that changed my life at least enough to squeak in an extra orgasm this week. Kudos to you McKinnon! I can't wait to read more of your writing.
Time After Time is a fantastic story about a woman who wishes a different path for herself. When Hayley sees what it's like to be married to the men who used to be in her life before Rick she learns to see what's really in her heart. Each marriage brings her more understanding. With every man she dated in her past she learned more about what she wanted and what to look for in a partner. Being married to them teaches her something new about herself again. I loved that aspect of the story. Hayley's experiences make her wiser and they give her valuable insights into her own behavior.
Hayley is a sweet and strong woman, but like every human being she has her flaws. She's a wonderful main character and I could easily picture her with each of the men she chose. She's strong and goes after what she wants. When she makes her decisions she doesn't question herself. I loved reading the mix of her past and present and Hannah McKinnon cleverly switches between them. Timing is important in a story like this and she knows exactly when to give what information. That makes Time After Time interesting and gripping. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen to Hayley and what being married to each partner would show her about herself.
Hannah McKinnon's writing flows easily. Her story is compelling and I couldn't put it down. People are always asking themselves the what-if question and as a theme for a book it's both fascinating and entertaining. I liked this story very much and think it's a great read with a lovely romantic ending.
