One mystical spell later, Alessandra appears on Cat’s Beverly Hills doorstep five hundred years in the future. Surrounded by confusing gadgets, scary transportation, and scandalous clothing, Less is hesitant to live the life of a twenty-first century teen…until she meets the infuriating—and infuriatingly handsome—surfer Austin Michaels. Austin challenges everything she believes in…and introduces her to a world filled with possibility.
With the clock ticking, Less knows she must live every moment of her modern life while she still can. But how will she return to the drab life of her past when the future is what holds everything she’s come to love?
I can't even begin to explain Austin. I didn't like him initially. I wanted to hate him. And I wanted to know why he was such an arrogant ass. Why was Less drawn to him? Was he drawn to her the same way? It was all very titillating. And awkward. And charming. Silly. Romantic. And intense.
LESS + AUSTIN = SPARKS. And not necessarily the shooting stars and sparklers kind. These two both have a lot to learn about life, love and each other. And how much time does Less really have to explore a relationship of any sort? Can you imagine teenage angst across the centuries? Such different customs and expectations. It's at times sad. And at other times, laugh out loud funny. I found the entire story captivating, but theirs were the scenes that kept my eyes glued to page, rushing to see where and how far they would go.
