Goodreads Synopsis: Calling Anna and Bennett’s romance long distance is an understatement: she’s from 1995 Chicago and he’s a time traveler from 2012 San Francisco. The two of them never should have met, but they did. They fell in love, even though they knew they shouldn't. And they found a way to stay together, against all odds. 

It’s not a perfect arrangement, though, with Bennett unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits, skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna in hers. They each are confident that they’ll find a way to make things work...until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen (and certainly never expected to). Will the decisions he makes from that point on cement a future he doesn't want?
Told from Bennett’s point of view, Time After Time will satisfy readers looking for a fresh, exciting, and beautifully-written love story, both those who are eager to find out what’s next for Time Between Us's Anna and Bennett and those discovering their story for the first time. 

From Goodreads

I feel in love with Time After Time and I have to say that it is way better than Time Between Us! Time After Time had the perfect elements of Time Between Us, but done in Bennett's perspective making it relatable and spell binding at the same time. I loved Time After Time and I would definitely not mind re-reading it again!

What stood out in Time After Time was that it was done in Bennett's perspective, which I thought would just crash and fall, since every book written in a guy perspective just fails, this was done flawlessly! Tamara gave him a good voice throughout the whole book and I just related to everything he went through with Anna. In Time After Time, it explores more of the the struggles of time traveling for Bennett, but also the relationship aspects. There was a great amount of romance scenes, mixed with the time traveling and family parts. It's a job well done :) 

Time After Time part bittersweet, especially towards the end when Bennett makes a heart wrenching choice for Anna! (Be ready for tears!) Tamara does a great job of playing with your emotions between the characters. Overall, Time After Time is a memorable sophomore book to Time Between Us with a fresh new voice from Bennett. I am excited to see what Tamara has in store for YA contemporaries/realistic fiction!
