Tempus (Tempus #1) by Tyra Lynn


                       Tempus (Tempus #1)


According to Albert Einstein, the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion. He might have been right.

Seventeen-year-old Jessie McLeod is used to getting glimpses of the past when she touches objects in her dads antique shop, but she's not used to the past looking back. Especially when the past is a gorgeous guy and she is dressed like a slob.

Shocked and intrigued, Jessie becomes obsessed with trying to catch another glimpse of that perfect face. When thoughts of him invade her sleep, the dreams seem so real that she wakes with the feel of his lips lingering on her skin. Soon after, however, the one guy she thought she’d never date suddenly asks her out. Either something strange is going on, or all those years of using furniture cleaner finally caused brain damage.

Brain damage is easy enough to believe—until the day she turns around and looks straight into the face from her dreams. Completely unaware, Jessie is now in a race against time to remember something important, something life-changing, and the one person who can tell her the truth doesn’t dare to—she must remember on her own.

With only a week before senior year, the once self-assured Jessie is now sure of nothing. Well, maybe one thing. Everything’s been turned upside down, and it's all because of that stupid mirror she found in the shop on Monday and the glimpse that changed her future—maybe even her past.

(MY THOUGHTS)      5  HEARTS!!!!!
 Tempus will melt your heart a thousand times eternity. Tyra Lynn will break your heart a thousand times with this breathtaking love story between Jessie and Gabriel. If you’re wondering about the thousand times thing, they’re Gabriel’s words to Jessie: for you, a thousand times eternity. That's just a little hint to show you the beautiful love between these two. Tyra Lynn has created an intriguing heart-felt love story which shows nothing can separate soul mates—not even time. I also liked the way Tyra Lynn showed Jessie's feeling for Steve. I think most teenage girls have found their self in this situation with a guy, and to me, Lynn wrote this real. I don't find it leading a guy on at all. I felt Jessie was being true to her feelings like any teenage girl trying to figure her feelings out and make the responsible, right choice for her. So I really don't like when others call this “leading a guy on” because it’s not. It’s part of growing up. So thank you, Tyra Lynn for show a teenagers girl's heart for caring about two guy and I also give Tyra Lynn high praise for her awesome writing and storyline.

Jessie is seventeen and it’s her last week of summer before she starts her senior year. Jessie also has visions, or glimpses as she calls them, but only when she touches antiques. And with her father's antique shop she, has a lot of glimpses. When she touches any kind of old object she can see the person who owned it. When Jessie's father buys a nineteenth century full-length-mirror Jessie is going to get more than a glimpse of someone else’s life, she’s going to get her own past, present, and future in the most gorgeous blue-eyed boy she’s ever seen. And he’s looking back at her. Jessie's glimpses turn into deja vu when she walks into her father’s shop and meets the new guy her dad has hired. It’s her mirror guy. Gabriel is gorgeous, with blue eyes and black hair, and he’s from the nineteenth century. And he needs Jessie to remember…But with Gabriel and Jessie’s love, one day can change their love for ever.

Tempus is a timeless love story with these two soul mates, and with the cliffhanger ending, it definitely has me hoping Tyra Lynn writes with a fast pen. I recommend Tempus as a must read.
