Kurzbeschreibung

Professor Simon Cross has spent his life searching for evidence of vampires and avoiding emotional entanglements. When a mysterious accident transports Simon and his assistant, Elizabeth West, back in time, Simon finally finds both the proof that he's been looking for, and the romance that he hasn't.

Simon and Elizabeth's developing relationship is tested by demons real and imagined. In 1920s Manhattan, there are more than mobsters vying for power in the city's speakeasies. When the local kingpin with a dark secret sets his sights on Elizabeth, day to day struggles become a fight for their very lives.

This book started out very promising but quickly took a turn for the ridiculous and tedious. I love time travel stories but the stereotype secondary characters and endless pages of Harlequin Romance-esque prose about longing were just too much for this reader. I slogged through it but was very happy that I borrowed it from the Kindle library and didn't pay for it.

Both main characters were totally selfish and self-absorbed and became annoying pretty fast. It would have been nice to have more description about the environment the characters found themselves in (NY 1929) and some discussion of the social and political mores of the time rather than stupid, cliché situations which strained credulity. If done well, going back in time in itself would be an amazing story. The addition of a vampire (especially with such a fleeting look at his backstory, and no connection to any future events) was just stupid. Isn't running up against an authentic 1920s gangster enough? Why on earth do you need vampires? I considered putting the book down at that point.

One would think that going back in time would have challenges such as adjusting to life without the modern conveniences that we've come to take for granted or using jargon that wouldn't be readily understood, or even the burden of foreknowledge that the characters would have discussed. But no... Anything like that, which is what makes these types of books so interesting, was pretty much glossed over in favor of more pages about desire and the characters' emotional issues. It seems like the author herself wasn't very familiar with the time period she chose to set her story in which was definitely a disappointment.

An excellent example of a solid time travel story is Stephen King's 11/22/63. That book is fantastic. This one is not. I cannot recommend this one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen 4.5 stars - Great characters and a fascinating trip to the '20's - what a great find 13. Oktober 2010
Von melindeeloo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Kindle is opening my horizons and Out of Time is a great example of the wonderful treasures you can find if you get lucky. Despite the 'paranormal romance' subtitle, Out of Time is really more of a time travel romance with a paranormal complication as part of the conflict than an actual paranormal romance, since neither of the leads go bump in the night, but it is a really good time travel romance.

An accidental trip to the past, lands Professor Simon Cross and his graduate Assistant Elizabeth West in New York during the summer of 1929. Being stranded out of time with only each other to rely on, allows the unacknowledged attraction between the pair to come to light and I enjoyed the way their relationship slowly -and steamily - builds into something more. (For those concerned with sensuality level, Simon and Elizabeth's relationship does become physical and the first love scene is descriptive but not as detailed as most main stream paranormal romance and nowhere near the paint-by-numbers descriptions of the more erotic stuff.)

All of the characters in Out of Time are interesting and fully fleshed with interesting back stories - even the supporting characters. But I really loved Simon and Elizabeth. The pair couldn't be more different. From a moneyed background, Simon is a man who has held himself back from life and relationships with all of their messy complications, so the accidental trip to the past pulls him way out of his comfort zone. Elizabeth's upbringing was almost on the opposite end of the spectrum, but she genuinely likes people and has a talent for relating to others, so she approaches their `ordeal' as an adventure and an opportunity to experience first hand all that this era has to offer.

Simon of course wants to be careful not to make ripples in time. But since they have to survive until they hopefully will be returned home, Elizabeth wins and they both find jobs and end up immersed in 1920's life - the trials and entertainments of the prohibition era itself add an interesting flavor to their story. But survival is going to be more than just making ends meet until it's time to go home. Simon's prescient nightmares and a more than human monster who has set his sights on Elizabeth, add an element of peril to the tale and provide the means to bring about an ending that takes the whole time travel part of the story full circle, which I always enjoy - it just ties things off so neatly.

So I am happy to have stumbled on Out of Time and if it were paper and not pixels it would be going on my keeper pile - I guess I'll have to start a virtual one. But in any case, I certainly will be keeping an eye out for more from author Monique Martin.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Fluffy romance, time travel, and a vampire. 7. Juni 2016
Von LoveToReadGoodBooks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
If you're someone who likes time travel mixed in with a formulaic fluffy romance between a strong-willed woman and an older taciturn man, then this is the book for you.

If you like a superficial mystery that doesn't tax your brain with stomach clenching twists, then this book is still in your genre.

If you like a vampire story that's told at arm's length rather than emotionally pulling you into the thick of things--one that doesn't grip you enough to get in the way of thinking about what you're going to cook for dinner--then you just found your next read. Get your finger ready to press the "click to buy" button. It's free and is the first of a series.

However...

If you're in the mood to read a story that drops you into the emotional psyches of the characters and has you turning pages wondering what's going to happen next as you chew off the last of your lipstick and leave your pasta water boiling over because you're too involved with the story to remember what time it is, you'll be disappointed. Give it a miss.
5.0 von 5 Sternen If you love stories about time traveling, you DONT want to MISS THIS ONE!! 27. August 2015

Ever since reading 'Time and Again' & 'Time After Time' by Jack Finney as a young girl, I've been fascinated with the idea of traveling back in time. I mean who wouldn't want to walk through Central Park in the 1880's to see the Statue of Liberty's arm just standing there, waiting to become a part of the symbol of America's freedom? To see what is was like to live before the War and The Great Depression changed our country forever? A time when life was slower; villains were villains and heroes were heroes with no gray area; family and neighbors were our best friends and people truly believed that the American Dream was possible if you just worked hard enough and wanted it enough?
This story doesn't disappoint. It takes place in a time period after the War, when the world is still reeling from the incredible loss of life but just before the Great Depression. A period of time when New York was working hard and playing even harder. Time and life were not to be taken for granted because you never knew what the next day might bring.
The two main characters, Elizabeth and Alex- professor and assistant- find themselves looking through an old box of mementos Alex inherits after his aunt passes that belonged to his beloved grandfather. The one and only person who ever loved and understood Alex. Sharing incredible stories of times past and adventures had, supposedly years before his grandfather was even born, only to die in a most horrific way, his last breath and words taken in a 6 yr old Alex's arms.
This tragedy scars Alex in ways he doesn't even understand. Affecting his ability to love and trust anyone and leaving him with dreams that are terrifyingly prophetic. Following in his grandfather's footsteps Alex studies and becomes a professor of the occult where he meets Elizabeth who becomes his assistant after being his student for many years. Together they embark on an adventure that takes them to a time and place they never thought possible.
This story, with its wonderful characters and plot, was so absorbing I couldn't put the book (or tablet in this case) down until I had finished reading it. I felt like I knew Charlie the owner and bartender of the speak-easy where Lizzie goes to work after they find themselves stranded, for who knows how long, in this time period. He's a man who is hard and crusty on the outside because of a painful loss, yet still has a gentle soft side that is revealed to us slowly as the story evolves and he gets to know Lizzy.
Without giving anything away, I love the way the villain is portrayed. How he became a villain is not so different than other stories I've read and perhaps it could have been a bit more original but I liked that even being a villain, there was still a vulnerability to him that made me almost feel bad for him. Almost. But that's what makes a good villain a great villain in a story!
A big reason I like and why I'd recommend this book is the relationship shared between the two main characters. It was decidedly refreshing to me. It developed slowly, over time and wasn't all hot and heavy sex that disrupted the book like so many other books I've read before.
I'm not a prude and I enjoy sex as much as the next person but when I'm reading a book that has a lot of sex scenes I always end up skimming thru that part to make sure I don't miss something important, but quickly to get back to the real story. There's a difference between love scenes and sex scenes. It just becomes annoying and distracting to me after so much, but that's just my opinion. If you are like me and enjoy reading about two people discovering they love love each other over a period of time with a realistic amount of love making etc. then you'll enjoy this novel all the more for the way this author portrays falling in love in this story with these characters.
I'm just a real sucker for a good love story that isn't just all about the two people falling in love but has a bigger story behind it. This one has adventure, suspense, mystery etc..add in time travel to early 1920's N.Y. ... I'm all in!
I can't wait to get started on the next book in the series. But with a more than great possibility that it will be as absorbing as this one was... I think I better wait till at least tomorrow to start it. I couldn't put this one down till I finished and there's still laundry to do and dinner to make.
Oh heck with it. Laundry will still be there tomorrow and I can order pizza for dinner tonight. So think ill do just that and start reading the next one now :) I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did. Ill let you know how the next one rates when I finish reading it...which I predict will be in the next day or so! Happy Reading - K.J. Nolan
3.0 von 5 Sternen Too much concentration on the romance at the expense of the time travel component. 18. Juli 2016
Von Mandy Walkden-Brown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
if you enjoy the focus of a story heavily biased towards romance you will definitely enjoy this.
Personally, I wanted to push the repressed professor under the nearest model-T Ford when the pair accidentally time travelled to New York of the late 1920s. At almost the halfway point of the book when he finally admitted his feelings for his grad student and the focus shifted to why they were there things improved quite dramatically and became a lot more interesting. Meeting family members long dead and fighting the undead does tend to raise the excitement level!
And now that Professor Cross has stopped being an annoying prat and there were some intriguing unfolding revelations, I'll be moving on to peruse book 2 that is lurking in my cloud and hope that it focuses more on the time travel aspects.
Despite my above reservations, it was well written and a mostly enjoyable read.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Engaging and deliciously absorbing.... 3. April 2014
Von Tbascoebuzz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This story completely captivated and intrigued me from the first chapter. The dialogue is witty, fresh and concise, compelling the reader to connect instantly to the two main characters. I loved it!

Tall, handsome & brilliant Professor Simon Cross teaches "Intro. to Occult Studies"...He always captivates and holds his class under the spell of his deep, hypnotic English accented baritone voice...without trying. His powerfully graceful and fluid movements across the room hold every student spellbound. He's detached from life and emotionally withdrawn, devoted and living only for proof of his studies; that is, do Vampires actually exist? Simon Cross is the epitome of the prim and proper English gentleman. He's in his 40's and quite stuffy and satisfied with his lonely existence. However, he would never admit it to anyone...(he barely can admit to himself or allow himself to ponder)...but he's so attracted to his personal assistant, Elizabeth West.

Elizabeth West is a twenty-something modern girl from Lubbock, Tx. She is the polar opposite of Simon Cross- - young, enthusiastic with life...rambunctious- - a free-spirit if there ever was one. So why does she feel such an attraction to stuffy (but handsome) Professor Cross?

I absolutely loved this fabulous plot of this proper English professor being thrown into a time travel adventure with Ms. Elizabeth West...quite by accident. Their dialogue is simply...deliciously humorous at times as they work through their dilemma of getting back home...being forced together, to rely upon each other and (Simon Cross) to come to terms with his shortcomings, fears and his English pride.

What a thoroughly delightful and fascinating concept for a plot and one I personally found completely intriguing and entertaining. This particular story of time travel told in a whole new and original version was a well developed, solid effort with great attention to detail. I loved these characters! I loved this story! The first few chapters lay a solid foundation. But press on and you'll be rewarded.
