If you're a person who doesn't mind f/f/m/m sex in your books, than you'll have no issues with Reece and Lara's jump into the Mediterranean harem they find themselves in at the beginning of Twice Upon a Time. While the relationship between the Governor, his wife and their servants was crucial to what was happening in that particular storyline, it was the relationship between Reece and Laura that had your focus as it was tested because of what was happening with the individuals in whose bodies they are currently inhabiting. Jealousy and trust were facets to their relationship that were tested and which ate at Reece.
But it's when they jump to Japan that I feel they were really tested. Hana, the woman who wants to kill the samurai as an act of revenge for her brother's death, has trust issues. Trust in the samurai who intrigues her, even when she wants to kill him. Trust in the other men in the camp. And trust in herself to stick with her plan. It's that lack of trust and Lara's comments about how she could never be in a relationship with a man she doesn't trust that causes turmoil for Reece. He's been lying about what really happened to Laura and realizes their entire "new" relationship is built off that lie.
I loved the prologue as it gave us a little more insight into what happened that caused Laura to die. I would have liked more information into why Reece did what he did and what is so awful in his past that he's afraid to reveal it. I'm hoping we get more of that as we leap into the next book, which appears to take place on a pirate ship (fun!!).
Olivia doesn't disappoint in this second in her series of Lover's Leap. I literally couldn't put it down. I enjoyed learning some of Reece and Laura's background this time around. The story starts out with how they first started leaping. And the secret that Reece is keeping from Laura. The book does have some explicit sexual scenes in it but the author tries to keep it more personal with Laura and Reece directing the scenes. Again, I found the book delightful and funny. Reece's secret can't be held back much longer. I can't wait for the next in the series to find out what happens. Does true love stand not only the test of time by leaping in the past but Reece's lies? I also, want to know what BIG secret Reece is keeping. OOOO Olivia knows how to keep you hanging and waiting for more. You will find the tale of Laura being a princess written so well you thought you were there. It was fantastically written and well thought out. The Samurai story wasn't as good to me but it wasn't bad. Most of the book did revolve around the first leap. Thanks to Olivia for writing another great tale!
I give Twice Upon a Time (Lovers' Leap) 4.5 of 5 Stars!
In fact I have notice Olivia second books are better to me then the first...Weird..
