Two Worlds Collided
by Karen Michelle Nutt
GENRE: time travel romance/ rock star fantasy
Evie Reid, on a whim, agrees to travel back in time to 1997 to change bad boy Bellamy Lovel’s path of destruction. She’s smart with a college degree, but she’s still fan-girl crazy for the rock band, Civilized Heathens. Evie knows despite all Bellamy’s smiles and enthusiasm on the stage, he’s destined to end it all on one lonely night in a hotel room unless she can change his path.
Bellamy isn’t keen on having Evie as his personal assistant, hired by his band mates to watch over him, and keep him on schedule. However, there is something about the woman that sparks his interest, despite his best to ignore her. When darkness threatens to consume him, he realizes she may be the only light that will chase the shadows away.
The premise here is interesting. A girl who gets to time travel back to save a musician. Bellamy reminds me very much of Kirk Cobain. Evie is a likable character and Bellamy, while smarmy, has some charms as well. The description is good, but sometimes too much all at one time, like a description of what everyone is wearing. There’s a lot of language, sex, and drug use, so it may not be for everyone, but the concept is good and the writing isn’t bad. It didn’t hook me like some books, but it was still interesting. I’d rate is 3.5/5 stars.
Evie stood in the center of their clasped hands like they were going to play a game of London Bridge is Falling Down. The nursery rhyme seemed almost fitting. However, she wouldn’t be repairing a bridge, but a life. Making it stronger in hopes that despair didn’t weaken the mind where irrational decisions lay in wait to destroy. Evie stood nose to nose with the cardboard cutout of Lovel. It seemed creepy to be staring into those baby blue eyes and smiling face when she was about to take on a mission to save him from killing himself.
“If you zap us to oblivion, I’m going to be so mad at you,” Lisa grumbled.
Kelsey ignored her and began the spell, “Send Emerson Violet Reid back to August 3, 1997, before Bellamy Kendrick Lovel drew his last breath.” She went on and recited something that Evie didn’t understand, something old and foreign, but as Kelsey spoke the words, the air around them felt different, heavy and charged. She gripped the necklace tighter and her gaze shifted to the cardboard Bellamy lookalike. The world tilted, making her dizzy and Kelsey’s voice grew farther away. Then she felt a surge of wind around her, and a light so bright she shielded her eyes. Darkness blasted her senses next, and her body felt weightless as it zoomed through a black void. Sounds blasted her from every side and she wanted to cover her ears but couldn’t move. She was at the mercy of whatever force was driving her away from her friends.
