Claudia is in her mid thirties and so ready to settle down and put her wild past behind her. She's got a great boyfriend, Adam, but somehow he just isn't ready to commit, and it's making her crazy. She knows the reason is some bitch who broke his heart shortly after the accident that left him a paraplegic. If only she could go back in time and somehow undo the damage--lucky for her Adam has invented a working time machine.

If the sci fi premise seems far-fetched, trust me, just go with it, because it's totally worth it. Costa doesn't go too far into the science details--that's not the point. It's really an allegory about confronting your past, knowing yourself, and maturing from the extended adolescence of your early twenties to a more settled, adult life in your thirties. I could really relate to Claudia's mixture of embarrassment and defensiveness when considering her own wild years.

The romance between Adam and Claudia is so sweet. At first when Claudia's frustrated with him he seemed a little cold, but he really grew on me, and by the end I was tearing up. His disability is portrayed very realistically, but it's not the main focus. Most stories with a wheelchair and time travel would center around fixing the disability, but this book is much more about changing attitudes and emotions.

I'm going to tuck my literary magnifying glasses away, and write a review for The Time Traveler's Boyfriend based on exactly what it was trying to be: a cutesy book with a slightly deeper life lesson. Time travel in my fiction is as near and dear to my heart as my own flesh and blood, yes, the dramatics are necessary. I LOVE time-travel, the concept of it, the execution of it through words, and ONE DAY! the execution of it in real life...yes? *sigh* One can only hope. Needless to say, The Time Traveler's Boyfriend wasn't going for the Nobel prize in the science and explanation of time-travel, for that wasn't the point of this book. It was an exploration of life, and the lessons it lays out for us along the way, should you be so inclined as to stoop down and pick them up.

Claudia is in love. For the first time she's found her heart, and it's within Adam, the super geeky inventor boyfriend, who also happens to be a paraplegic. His disability was a focus, but not in the typical way. His character wasn't belittled, or made to seem any different than a character that was able to stand. He was sexy, and charming, and intelligent (genius, really), and he made one HECK of a boyfriend. This aspect was, by far, my favourite, and I wished more authors had the guts to introduce more intellectually, or physically, challenged characters into their books.

Adam creates a time machine. Or as he would rather put it, a "wormhole". He then makes a 'simple' request of Claudia: he wants her to travel back in time, and stop the accident that permanently confined him to a wheelchair. She obliges, and embarks on a journey of a lifetime (literally). The consequences were to be expected, and the moments of hilarity and distress were in the multiples.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I came across this book as a free trial offer. Sci-fi and/or paranormal is hit or miss with me. If the story is good and I get lost in it, then the genre isn't as important, and I can accept things that are a bit out in left field - like a time machine. Maybe they will exist some day, or even today, but are hidden in a mysterious research lab somewhere. But this story was well written enough that I was able to accept that a guy tinkering around with physics in the spare room of his home, with no specialized training or support staff was able to successfully build a time machine with such exact precision.

Although some other reviewers seem to feel this was written for a YA (Young Adult) audience, I thought it was rather realistically portraying the thoughts and actions of the characters at their different ages. Yes, Claudia made some dumb moves, said things she shouldn't have, made mistakes, but considering she was time traveling - well, there really isn't a lot of direction for how to behave when you are dealing with a dozen years or so in a different time. I especially appreciate that editing seemed to be well done - none of the spelling errors, simple grammar mistakes etc that often plague Kindle version books.
Maybe it was too late at night for me to be dealing with the mental logistics of what happened in the past, and the reveal of how it affected "today" at the end of the book, and I intend to re-read the last couple of chapters to pigeonhole the events. But the ending was neatly wrapped up, and the epilogue tied it up with a bow. Well done.

I like Annabelle's writing style. She is funny. We definitely get a good understanding of how the main female character thinks. The plot is interesting, with nice twists. Her portrayal of a paraplegic guy is realistic, no pity on one hand, no inspirational story on the other, just a cute and smart guy who happens to use a wheelchair. I re-read this book a few times and it still makes me laugh. The intimate scenes are well written and give us a good taste of what it means to do certain things differently and still get plenty of pleasure from it. I highly recommend this book.
