From Goodreads. A threat from the past could destroy the future. And the clock is ticking... Kaleb Ballard's relentless flirting is interrupted when Jack Landers, the man who tried to murder his father, timeslips in and attacks before disappearing just as quickly. But Kaleb has never before been able to see time travelers, unlike many of his friends associated with the mysterious Hourglass organization. Are Kaleb's powers expanding, or is something very wrong? Then the Hourglass is issued an ultimatum. Either they find Jack and the research he's stolen on the time gene, or time will be altered with devastating results. Now Kaleb, Emerson, Michael, and the other Hourglass recruits have no choice but to use their unusual powers to find Jack. But where do they even start? And when? And even if they succeed, it may not be enough... The follow-up to Hourglass, Timepiece blends the paranormal, science fiction, mystery, and suspense genres into a nonstop thrill ride where every second counts.
I really liked Hourglass and Em and Michael’s story, but my favorite part of the book was the charming tattooed swimmer with a quick wit, mild drinking problem, and who was an amazing cook! Who is that you ask? It’s Kaleb Ballard!!!!! He was hands down my favorite and, I looked forward to his scenes in Hourglass. So when I found out Timepiece was told from Kaleb’s POV let’s just say I was chomping at the bit to read it! One thing I didn’t get though was the cover I mean it’s Kaleb’s book so why is Em on the cover but oh well lol.
Myra did an amazing job telling the story from Kaleb’s POV and I laughed at his smart ass pick up lines they made me fall even more for him! When we got a deeper look into his beautiful soul he broke me into pieces, literally I bawled my eyes out!
Wait this is a book review right? Oops sorry I could go on about Kaleb for days ;) the book itself was awesome! I mean it was freaking brilliant!!!!!! There’s the same crew of peeps in it and yes Michael fans there’s plenty of him too! There is a new group thrown into the mix Chronos and they suck to put it mildly; they give Jack a run for his money even though he’s still a complete douche. Oh also there’s a love interest for Kaleb who is actually a perfect match for him, she doesn’t put up with his crap and I actually like her lol. I will admit the ending is a cliffhanger and you’ll be screaming at Myra for book 3!! (I wonder who’s POV that will be from?)
I chose a passage from the beginning of the story this time because it made me LOL ;)
I stared openly at the girl standing in line next to me, who did everything she could to avoid looking in my direction. Her mouth was a masterpiece, the lower lip slightly fuller then the top. Or it could’ve been a pout. Either way, it was the kind of lip that begged to be between my teeth. I had no idea how she got that ridiculously curvy body into a skintight golden cat suit, but I was all for helping her get out of it.
I leaned toward her. “Meow.”
Best come-on line ever.
She assessed me through a slim, black mask. “If you ask to rub my belly or make any of the obvious body-part jokes, I’ll steal your sword and you’ll leave here needing a peg leg. Or worse. Got it, sailor?”
“Aye, aye, Captain.” I gave her an enthusiastic salute.
She turned her back to me and stood on her tiptoes, craning he neck to check the progress of the line. The rear view was so spectacular, I considered not saying anything else to her until we were inside so I could enjoy it in peace.
But she caught me looking.
“You’re dressed like a cat right? Or a tiger?” I said quickly, the words slurring a little. Everything in my line of vision shifted to the left. “Are you here for the masquerade?”
“No. I regularly walk the streets of Ivy Springs dressed like a jungle animal.”
“Rawr.” I pretended to swipe her with imaginary claws and hissed.
