Kurzbeschreibung

A lover from another time

When Ted Ennis steps out the doors of the Criterion Theatre for a cigarette and finds himself in Victorian London, he begins to doubt his sanity. At first he thinks it's all a film set, and is sure that the strikingly handsome young man leaning against a lamppost must be the leading man…

What starts as a sordid transaction with a beautiful rent boy quickly turns into something much deeper, drawing him back again and again as he gets to know Jem and craves meaningful encounters with him.

But Ted doesn't understand the exact conditions necessary for his trips through time—and for Jem, time may actually be running out. Now Ted has one last shot to get back to Jem and save their relationship, before it's too late…

Ted hat bei einem Autounfall sowohl seine Eltern, als auch seinen Ehemann verloren. Er selbst leidet seitdem unter gesundheitlichen Einschränkungen, weshalb er froh ist, dass ein Freund ihm einen Job beim Theater verschafft hat.
Als er eines Abends während einer Vorstellung das Theater für eine Zigarettenpause verlässt, findet er sich im viktorianischen London wieder. Dort fällt ihm gleich ein hübscher, junger Mann auf, der sich sein Geld offensichtlich als Prostituierter verdient. Zuerst glaubt Ted, dass er in ein Film-Set geplatzt ist, aber als er erkennt, dass das nicht der Fall ist, zweifelt er zunächst an seinem Geisteszustand. Als sich der Vorgang jedoch am nächsten Abend wiederholt, ist Ted überzeugt, eine Tür in die Vergangenheit entdeckt zu haben. Und er nutzt diese Tür, um sich dort mit Jem zu treffen - dem jungen Prostituierten. Ted entwickelt rasch Gefühle für Jem und als er erfährt, dass Jem Gefahr droht, sucht er nach einem Weg, Jem in die Gegenwart zu holen.....

Im Gegensatz zu den Büchern, die ich bisher von der Autorin gelesen habe, hat sie diesmal nicht so viel Wert auf die Entwicklung und Tiefe der Charaktere gelegt. Ich hatte jedenfalls nicht das Gefühl, Jem wirklich zu kennen.
Genauso ging es mir mit der Beziehung der beiden. Auch hier fehlte mir eine Entwicklung; von "Geschäftsbeziehung" zu Liebe war es praktisch nur ein Schritt, ein Tag, und in Anbetracht der Umstände war das nur schwer nachvollziehbar.

Die Geschichte selbst war jedoch gut geschrieben und unterhaltsam und auch der Aspekt mit der Zeitreise war geschickt gemacht.

I love JL Merrow's books, and I thought this one was well written and well edited, it was on the shorter side but I could feel the chemistry between the guys. But this is one of the occassions where I thought that shorter form did not suit the story. I do like well written shorts and shorter novellas, but the love was unbelievably Insta and as much as I liked the chemistry, the ending felt a bit abrupt to me - I really do wonder if Ted and Jem will make it in the long run.

Review:

I love time travel stories. I haven't read one for awhile. After reading this novella I have no idea why I haven't. Now I'm totally on the hunt for more! I just wish the MM romance genre had more of them. I don't care if they drive me nuts trying to figure out the logistics because that's part of their charm.

This story has charm galore. It was sweet and romantic with a little bit of sadness in there. When we meet Ted he's trying to recover from a tragic event, just going through the motions of everyday life alone. Ted works at an old Theatre in London and one night something special happens. When Ted steps outside for a break he finds himself in Victorian London. As he's trying to figure out how this happened he spots Jem, a Rentboy, leaning against a lamppost. There is something about Jem that draws Ted to him.

It didn't take me long to fall in love with these two and I just couldn't imagine them not being together in either era. Thank goodness they find a way.

J.L. Merrow has a knack for storytelling, her writing is a pleasure to read and so wonderfully descriptive I feel like she had truly taken me back in time.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A great, romantic read. 29. Januar 2013

Ted has had a rough 18-months after a tragic car accident. As a result of the accident that took his parents and his husband's life, he experiences tremors in his hand, dizzy spells and slurred speech. He lives his life in a haze even if he has always believed that there had to be something more to life than broken dreams and mortality. It isn't until he steps out of the Criterion Theater for a smoke that his belief is confirmed.

He is amazed at what he finds and instantly drawn to the figure leaning against the the lamp post. Young, tall and dark-haired, Ted was curious of the man. After a few moments and an accusation that he was standing on the man's 'patch' he realizes that the man is a rent boy. Amidst the confusion and curiosity, Ted has an encounter with the stranger, which only helped to further ignite his curiosity.

I enjoyed this novella from start to finish. From the descriptions of Victorian London through the range in emotions brought out of Ted, J.L. Merrow brought to the page a wonderful love story of closure and second chances. Merrow did a wonderful job of taking the reader back in time with sights, smells and sounds. The pages were filled with details, but none of it felt overwhelming in any way. In fact, in only helped to engage the reader more in the story. At least that's what it did to me.

I enjoyed the time traveling concept and the purpose it served in the story - to bring Ted his second chance at love. I especially enjoyed learning about Victorian London or an "Dickensian queer's idyll" as Ted referred to the place. I understood why he felt that way about it because it was there that he started to feel again sensations he had long forgotten over the last year and a half - he lusted, he needed, he loved.

The writing was very good, with interesting characters, a unique twist to the time traveling concept and emotions galore, this novella packed a lot essential elements in just 75 pages. The characters were a joy to read. Jem was delightful and kind, he gave of himself to Ted without much question and in the end trusted him with his life. I couldn't resist adoring him! And Ted? Ted was high strung over his mental state, but so in need of finding a connection after all this time that my heart went out to him after his first encounter with Jem. I was cheering them on, grinning when they got together the second time and having a nervous breakdown when the portal wouldn't work.

This was a great, romantic read with an adorable set of characters and an interesting set of events that kept my attention throughout. I will certainly be looking for more from J.L. Merrow from this point on.

If you are a fan of time travel stories, then you are going to love JL Merrow's Trick of Time. In this fast paced and engrossing novella, Ted Ennis takes an unexpected step back in time and discovers love with Jem Pocket, a rent boy from a bygone era.

Recovering from a tragic loss and life altering injuries, Ted is working as an assistant at the Criterion Theatre. Taking a cigarette break one evening outside the theatre, Ted finds himself inexplicably transported back to the Victorian era. His encounter with Jem awakens not only his dormant libido but long buried emotions.

Both Jem and Ted are well-developed, three dimensional protagonists. Ted is still dealing with the lingering physical and emotional effects from a car accident. Although both have an incredible impact on his life, he has not let either overtake his life and he makes some positive changes in the aftermath of tragedy.

Jem is a sympathetic and likeable character who has also had his share of loss in his life. He is definitely a product of the times and his career as a rent boy is a necessity. He is determined to make his own way and refuses to accept either pity or charity from Ted.

The time travel aspect of Trick of Time is quite mysterious but very well done. Ms. Merrow's meticulous attention to detail brings the historical information vividly to life. She does not glamorize or ignore the harsh realities of life in the 1880s. This part of the storyline is quite interesting and provides many interesting facts.

The romance between Jem and Ted is very well done and their love scenes are sensual rather than erotic. Their easy acceptance of one another adds to their emotional connection. The time travel element gives the story a sense of urgency that makes it easy to overlook how quickly they fall for one another.

Trick of Time is a fabulously entertaining novella. JL Merrow is one of my favorite authors and I absolutely loved this unique romance.

I received a complimentary copy for review.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect time travel romance 21. März 2013
Von MLE - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. My thanks to the publisher, author, and NetGalley. This review is cross posted on my blog.

I will admit that I have a unabashed love for romance involving time travel. It is one of my favorite romance genres when done well, and this story does it well.

Ted is a man recovering from a tragic loss. He is a bit lost, but not completely broken. He has his moments of angst (which considering the depth of his losses is completely understandable), but he hasn't let his tragedy overtake his life, and he even let it inspire him to make some big changes in his life.

The setting was interesting, and the theater sounds amazing. I like how the time travel worked, and that there wasn't any big, or complicated mechanism worked out. I like the simple mystery of it.

I really like Jem. It was nice to see how strong he was, and that being a prostitute didn't mean he weak, or a victim. I also liked how the historical aspects weren't romanticized, or glossed over. The reality of the city, and the danger faced by men like Ted added to the feeling of the story. I like how the poem was worked in, and how despite Jem's background he wasn't presented as stupid in any way.

The romance is well done, and I like the connection that the two share goes beyond the simply physical. The comfort, and the strength they find in each other is really nice. It made everything for me that much sexier. The ending was well done, and made me happy. A perfect winter read.
