Calling Anna and Bennett's romance long distance is an understatement: she's from 1995 Chicago and he's a time traveler from 2012 San Francisco. The two of them never should have met, but they did. They fell in love, even though they knew they shouldn't. And they found a way to stay together, against all odds.
It's not a perfect arrangement, though, with Bennett unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits, skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna in hers. They each are confident that they'll find a way to make things work...until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen (and certainly never expected to). Will the decisions he makes from that point on cement a future he doesn't want?

Told from Bennett's point of view,Time After Timewill satisfy readers looking for a fresh, exciting, and beautifully-written love story, both those who are eager to find out what's next forTime Between Us'sAnna and Bennett and those discovering their story for the first time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sad to see this series end. So the epic ‘long distance’ relationship between Bennett and Anna ends right here. It is a sad day, to be honest. I wish someone will continue this story. I’ll even settle for a fan fiction. I didn’t read Time Between Us when it came out. In fact, I’d only read it a couple of weeks ago – and in one day at that. When I saw the sequel was up on Net Galley, I requested it right away. To my delight, I found out that this was told in Bennett’s POV. This time-traveling book was so easy to follow; readers will not be confused as it only switches between two periods. The one source of my concern with this series was the lack of scientific explanation as to how Bennett was able to travel. Conventional wisdom dictates that there should be some sort of viable information – doesn’t have to be verifiable – but it has to at least be explained, however far-fetched it may be. The thing is, though it was a bit of a disappointment, I really didn’t mind it at all. I wholly accepted the simple justification. This series was truly enjoyable, written with romance as the lead-in. Forget about all that time/space continuum garble. It’s all about two people that have met at the wrong time. Anna is pretty much playing catch-up to Bennett; because he was born in the future and Anna lived in the past. They’re trying to make an impossible relationship work. The more time Bennett switches between his time and Anna’s the more he realizes how difficult it is. The side effects of sliding are becoming more rampant and intense; as intense as his need to be with Anna. In here, Bennett started to figure out that changing the past has some consequences that changes the outcome no matter what. It’s interesting to see that stopping something from happening amounts to a different ending altogether – more often for the bad. He’s learned to understand exactly what he’s supposed to do with his abilities and that the ultimate lesson of all is that it’s always about his choice and not someone else’s prodding. Some readers would question how easily most have accepted Bennett’s abilities with uncanny ease; but for me, I’ve learned to just take everything with a grain of salt. Being a fan of this series pretty much enabled me to put my blinders on to its tiny imperfections. The ending wasn’t enough for me; I mean it’s awesome and all but not the perfect ending I was looking for. Heck, who am I kidding? I didn’t want it to end at all. One thing’s for sure though, it had me worried there for a second.

Editorial Reviews

Bennett mooches around his family's high-end San Francisco house in 2012, waiting for his girlfriend, Anna, to return to Evanston, Ill., from her summer in Mexico-in 1995. Bennett uses his amazing, inexplicable ability to travel through time to visit Anna in a series of trips that can't feel anything but futile. With 17 years between them, how can this romance survive? Anna's parents, ignorant of Bennett's abilities, become increasingly resentful of his seemingly cavalier treatment of their daughter. If he can't stick around, why doesn't he just leave her alone? And why does Anna put up with it? Meanwhile, in 2012, Bennett begins to use his talent the way his father always wanted him to: to correct senseless tragedies. Remarkably, he feels great after these interventions, not drained and afflicted by migraines the way he usually does after traveling back through time. Conversely, his returns from visits to Anna are becoming increasingly bloody and debilitating. Bennett serves as present-tense narrator of this sequel, describing his various agonies, physical and emotional, as he continues to pursue this hopeless relationship. Once again, Stone fails to provide readers with a solid understanding of Bennett's singular ability, seemingly changing the rules to suit her plot and characters-up to and including an apparently impossible resolution. There's romantic angst aplenty but little else to keep readers invested in either story or characters. (Fantasy. 12-16)-Kirkus
