One hour to rewrite the past For seventeen year old Emerson Cole life is about seeing what isn’t there swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal She’s tried everything but the visions k Yes I was one of the people slobbering over the cover and didn't pay too much attention of what the book was really about Then I heard two words time travel and I had no choice but to read it of course I'm confused with my feelings for this one The feelings I have are too all over the place I loved some of things and some things really bothered me but I will definitely be reading the seuel Timepiece Emerson is a 17 year old living with her older brother and his wife When we meet her she is recovering from her parents’ death and her time in a mental hospital and is grasping to find some normalcy The problem with that is she keeps seeing beings from the past and this is where Michael Weaver comes in Emerson's brother Thomas hires Michael to help her with her problem Soon enough Emerson learns she has a deep connection with Michael and the society he works for called the Hourglass That turns out to know about her than she does Emerson feels like she can trust Michael but then she finds out some things that cause her to ask uestions Michael is being vague and avoids answering her uestions and Emerson can tell something is up but she can’t tell what exactly What she finds out is something huge and of enormous scope which leaves her wondering if she may be in over her headAll right so I think I can sum up with one line what irked me most about this book Jumping between them was as smart as jumping in the middle of a cage match but I did it anyways putting a hand on each of their chests Even in the heat of the moment I had to appreciate the muscle tone of both Now I think this is the most cringe worthy line of the book but there are lines similar to this peppered throughout and I felt it kind of took away from the actual romance of the book And of course than one guy has to like her sigh If you cannot stomach things like this you should probably steer clear I'm pretty tolerant of these romances and it's clear from the beginning that they have a strong connectionattraction to each other Another thing I have to gripe about is her brother who lets her get way with a lot I am the oldest of my siblings and I would have no way accepted some of the things he did I guess I'm old school that way but you ask any responsible keyword older sibling and they'd probably tell you the same thing I also felt like I was reading a magazine article at times because we are told what Emerson is wearing all the time I don't actually need to know that much but that may be just mePut aside all I said though because despite that I was really engrossed with this story The plot moves along at a good pace and the story has an epic feel to it The strength of the book is the time traveling and how that works Towards the end of the book my stomach was literally in knots anticipating what was going to happen next I am getting attached to characters and the idea of what is going to happen to each and every one of them so the author can certainly write Bonus they actually mentioned empanadas in the book Now for those of you who don't know it's a Hispanic dessert that is sooooo good so yes it got kudo points just for that So in conclusion if you are a huge fan of paranormal romances I suggest you move this up on your to read listLater added I switched my rating from 4 to 3 stars I don't usually do this but I think I fell for the swept off my feet syndrome Still entertaining but needed something a little real for me to feel like it deserved the 4 star rating

Myra McEntire Ò Hourglass book

HourglassEep coming backSo when her well meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass Emerson’s willing to try one last cure But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future it may change her pastWho is this dark mysterious sympathetic guy barely older than Emerson herself who seems to believe every crazy I caught myself rolling my eyes at how hot she found him Throughout the book Emerson could not get over how good Michael looked She was all “His classic looks his lips his clothes even his muscles even saying his muscles have muscles” So yes there were plenty eye roll head meet table moments Then I realized I was being too critical and actually expecting it to suck Once I recognized these let go of some of my expectations things got a little better Yes there’s a lot of the same old same old in it but two things kept me going her family and the hope that it wouldn’t be too YA typical The good things first Her family is present One normally reads of YA protags who feel left out and misunderstood alone to deal with their issues until the reuisite love interest shows up to shake things up In Hourglass Emerson has a loving and supportive family With their parents dead Thomas and Dru his wife are all she has And that’s a good thing because they are there for her while still setting down some rules for her Another positive was the whole seeing ghosts and time travelling thing Or at least it could have been a good thing Because honestly? A lot of the book was Emerson obsessing over Michael’s physical perfection The time travel aspect just came across as to easy with the serious lack of explanation Readers are expected to take things at face value Em can see dead people sort of Em can harness her powers And Em can do this by following what bleep bleep says For a character touted to be independent and not so trusting and she really was those things at first I was very surprised by how easily later on she accepted some of the explanations Well maybe because it’s their “electric connection” that’s time and again alluded to in the bookAgain it still sadly is just another YA despite the story being “I see dead people” with the added element of time travel Hourglass could have been so good However the characters weren’t developed Emerson is not as independent or strong as I would have liked But maybe that’s a good thing because there can only be so many “strong” characters right? Uh Nope not right at all She came across as jealous and childish Then Michael He’s there he’s hot and Em likes him a lot Why? Whu? How? Is it because he is hot has pouty lips and muscles that have muscles that they develop a romance? I mean really? The other characters too were not as developed; I wish their abilities were explored a little Oh and there’s also a love triangleIf you still haven’t gotten enough of inexplicable YA romances with characters thought to be tough and strong but are really just enad with the physical attributes of their reuisite romantic interest this might do At least the ending was good It was surprising enough to get me to want to read the next one
