In Julie Cross' Tempest, the year is 2009. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy: he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies - nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors - it’s just harmless fun. That is… until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot.
In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years to 2007, but this is not like his previous time jumps. Now he’s stuck in 2007 and can’t get back to the future. Desperate to somehow return to 2009 to save Holly but unable to return to his rightful year, Jackson settles into 2007 and learns what he can about his abilities. But it’s not long before the people who shot Holly in 2009 come looking for Jackson in the past, and these “Enemies of Time” will stop at nothing to recruit this powerful young time-traveler. Recruit… or kill him.
Piecing together the clues about his father, the Enemies of Time, and himself, Jackson must decide how far he’s willing to go to save Holly… and possibly the entire world.

Sorry, I was not impressed.

Yes, fast moving
Robin Cook. His books usually have lots of surprises (twist & turns)
No but I do listen to lots of audio books and he did a great job
I could not stop listening to it. It made me laugh when Jackson had to clean up the bathroom at the gym which overflowed.
There were several scenes that made me cry but the most powerful one was when Holly read the card Jackson had written to Courtney(his sister) who died with his feelings about her but he never actually gave it to her.
I don't want to spoil it but the ending was sad to me too.
You will not want to stop listening once you get started. Great debut book for this author. Sad that I have to wait until next year for the sequel.
