My Review: Damn i really wish Goodreads had half of stars because this got a 3.5 or even 3.75 from me. I liked it, i really did, but God i was so mad at it for more than half the book that i can’t find it in myself to give it a 4. So let me tell you why both i love it, and hate it.
Okay so first off the plot: i liked the idea of the Timeless, i thought it was new and original, it wasn’t immortals who need blood, its not people who will live forever and ever and ever. Its about people who can live for a ridiculously long lives. So Cheyenne is trying to survive until her 20th b-day so that she will become timeless as well because is there is an evil clan who apparently wants to kill all the new Timeless’? I honestly was wondering the whole time wouldn’t the “evil” clan want to recruit before kill? I don’t know it always seems more interesting for me when they want you alive, death is so final….anyways personal choices is not the point. So back to the plot i liked it, i thought that there could have been a bit more action to help move the story along because the information wasn’t given freely about Cheyenne and the Timeless race. i get wanting to give it out slowly and controlled its better for the reader and better for the character in my opinion but i felt like we didn’t get anything until it was to late anyways.
So the big reason, well no thats a lie the reason this got a 3.75 from me because of the romance. Best Friend that is a boy = DANGEROUS always! always always always always unless it is implied right away that either he is: 1) gay 2)more of a brother 3)has a girl he is in love with 4)not their time what so ever is when its safe. But hot guy + charming personality + avoids all other girls advances + overprotective = DANGEROUS times 10. And worst off is BRINGING in ANOTHER love interest, are you freaking kidding me? I like a love triangle when its only other guy trying to invade and maybe for a moment the girl slips but i like it when the girl knows what she wants and who she wants because if it is true love, the kind that buries dead down in the soul no other is good enough, or at least i like to think so. but unfortunately this entire book well not entire but a HUGE portion was this: I love Colt, i do buttttttt Callon is pretty awesome and he actually sparks something in me. Yup…so okay i liked Colt for the most part he was a good guy but unfortunately i didn’t feel that passion behind their love NOW before you automatically turn away from this book because of this stop right now because i might be entirely bias because oh good god Callon sent me into a frenzy. But the ending saved this book from a flat out 3 and i won’t say why but it did and thank god now i am willing to read the next one.
Okay so next point i really want to make is that this book started off so strong, i was either about to bawl my eyes out out of sadness, or i was about to have tears of joy because it was so damn funny, and there was enough of a balance between action and quiet moments that i was just like YESSS! up til about maybe i think it was like 45% or 50% is when it started just getting my so mad that i wanted to stop. Well if you start to feel this way just keep going it will be worth it.
so let me talk about the characters for a bit even though i did sort of but not really so moving on
Cheyenne: She was adopted, she loses her adoptive parents within in the first few chapters – omgosh if you read the summary then you already know this so calm down! no spoilers here. Anyways she always thinks to herself how she keeps everyone at a distance, it was like her thing but honestly i didn’t see it, she was kind, loving, and caring. She did put herself out there at least as much as i would, well for the most part. I can see that she scared of real passion, that is why i think she is so against anything with Callon because i truly believes he makes her feel and Colt is safe. Safe isn’t fun! Anyways sorry that was such a big issue for me let me go back to Cheyenne. She is devious when she needs to be and hilarious while being devious. There were some parts were it was suppose to be light and funny but i just wasn’t feeling it, it felt to heavy of a moment to try and turn it around and be funny. But she was teased a lot and always a good sport about it. She does stand up for herself when it comes to physical fights but when it becomes emotion she tries more to ignore it, and i know it sounds like i am contradicting myself right now but i’m not trust me. so moving on to the boys.
Colt: Tall, buff, and blonde 😐 my own crazy rule is never trust the blonde. Teehee. I don’t know why but i thought it was going to be a huge turn off for me in the first two pages but then you start to get to know his playful behavior and charming personality that i started to really like him, but my first thought again was to put his at a distance and maybe this just added to my whole other bundle of problems with him and his relationship with Cheyenne. He is a good friend and does take good care of her and at first i loved him but while he was protective and sweet he still held secrets from Cheyenne and her dependence on him bothered me. I don’t know she forgave him a lot easier than i thought she would have. Anyways throughout the book he became overly possessive and it truly bothered me and i like possessive guys…they are fun! anyways i felt nothing passionate towards him, and he tells Cheyenne how much he loves her but i don’t know his actions felt more like he wanted to possess her not love her.
Callon: OH HOT DAMN HE IS SUCH A FINE MAN! throughout most of all this book i wanted more and more of his hazel eyed, brown hair GOD….what? i didn’t call him a God even though that is what he is… :|. hehehe okay so moving on from the fact he is a God and there is a reason to read it all of its own. Anyways Callon is serious, he is referred to as “he who must be obeyed” and i loved that because he truly did act that way and i love the bossy, arrogant asses, oh they are the best! but really he is sweet underneath it all, and he can be playful when he needs to be but is deeply intelligent and protective. Okay so another thing that bothered me is he used the same term of endearment for Cheyenne as Colt which was sweetheart, and maybe its just me but i wanted them to have separate nicknames for her, it seems more personal that way, it separates the two also. *Heavy sigh* i think my most favorite thing that Callon says though is
“I would have jumped up and pulled you into my arms to prevent you from leaving. I would have kissed you senseless and made you forget who you were and what you were about to do.”
I mean HOLY HELL if you don’t feel hot after that something might be wrong with you…. all i can say is YUM YUM YUM YUM and i was ready to pounce him right then and there, how Cheyenne could control herself is beyond me.
And then there is the forgotten one Daniel: Our black hair, freckled, comedian, he was suppose to be the happy-go-lucky guy and honesty i wanted more of him. i wanted Cheyenne to turn to him as a new friend, for him to become the actual friend that she could turn to and talk to things about. unfortunately he was only there for saving, and for a few jokes… i missed him and he became a bit flat and forgotten. sad days….
okay so i thought it was sort of strange that we never even got a glimpse of the main villain but hey its a series so i am holding out for maybe the next one we will meet him? *crosses fingers* alright so with that said, the ending isn’t really cliff-hanger-y sort of but not too bad, but i was left wondering where they were going? i don’t think we know… which is strange, but god those last few chapters saved this for me it really did.
My last advice? If you hate love triangles with a passion that will make you explode i highly recommend proceeding with caution! if you are into love triangles then jump in! do it! but i think if you can bear with it for awhile then this might be worth it. i liked it, it started off really strong and i thought that i was going to give this a book a 5 right away but man… well you know if you read my review…
