When an electrical fire breaks out in the lab, an experimental machine malfunctions and Alex is caught in the explosion. He awakens, injured and confused, to learn he has traveled two hundred years into the future—to the year 2230. Under the care of the gorgeous Doctor Baylin Davies (a definite contender for a leading man) Alex recovers quickly, and his feelings for Baylin deepen each day. Baylin is handsome, sexy, caring, and a verified genius—everything Alex could ever dream of. Add in the whole concept of living in the future, and Alex soon decides the year 2230 is the perfect year to begin his new life.
But then there’s the major…
Whenever the intimidating military man, Major Marcais, is near, a strange power overcomes Alex’s senses, clouding his mind and weakening his desire to be with Baylin.
When the major reveals he is an alien and declares Alex to be his life mate, Alex must find the strength to resist him. And while fighting for the man he truly desires, Alex just might discover he’s the leading man in his own adventure.
Accidental time travel, not something I usually read about but this sounded interesting and I went for it because I have enjoyed the author. I liked how this wasn’t overly sci-fi but just enough to keep it interesting. Alex and Baylin feel an instant attraction to each other and both try to navigate how a relationship would work especially if the High Order want to send Alex back to his time. And Major, he is basically a jerk, he comes around just enough to make Alex off balance.
We get to see both Alex and Baylin struggle with their feelings and how they think they should approach them with each other. I loved how adorable Alex is and is awkwardness is made to be just a cute quirk since he is so different than those around him. Baylin still struggles with his confidence based on how some others treat him but Alex is determined to show him differently and he will need it to fight for what he wants. I was very happy that Alex had the ability to stand up for what he wanted and didn’t have to go along with what the Major said.
Cover art by Natasha Snow is nice though doesn’t scream futuristic to me.
