About the Book
About the Author
CM Corett is an Australian author of gay M/M romance who has given up on trying to limit herself to one sub-genre. She writes contemporary, historical, sci-fi and time travel… and she may have a few paranormal drafts hidden under the bed!
She has lived in the USA and travelled the world gathering inspiration for her stories, but the beautiful beaches of Western Australia will always be her home.
An avid reader of love between men, her M/M writing obsession began with Jack and Ianto, characters from the TV series ‘Torchwood’ (BBC TV Wales) This led to the discovery of Torchwood Fanfiction and subsequently, her desire to write M/M became all consuming.
Her other obsessions are reading, movies, superheroes, and video games with awesome graphics.
She hates housework and anyone who expects her to notice (or care about) the dust on top of the fridge.

I really enjoyed this book. The author makes you connect with the character. Alex is a character who appears to have been through a lot but the problem I have is the author never showed that.
The story starts, with the accelerator malfunctioning and Alex gets thrust to the year 2230. Now that is completely fine because the story still has a rising action and a climax but if you want to tell people about how much a character has suffered. Show them, don’t tell them and I feel like the audience was told how horrible Alex’s life really is. He should have spent at least two days in the past, then lead into how the accelerator malfunctioned. Even if Alex didn’t know, at least readers would know.
