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.
I knew when Tamara shared her Anna and Bennett playlists for Time After Time that I would have a hard time picking a favorite song. Like Anna, I was in high school in 1995, so her anthems were my high school anthems, too. Some of Anna's songs from the Time Between Us playlists were MY songs, too. And the Time After Time playlist was more of the same...in fact, there is one particular song that I clearly remember belting out at the top of my lungs as I drove my friends around in my brown '85 Toyota Camry. (And, no, I'm not telling you what that song was, you cheater! You'll have to check out the other playlist posts or wait for the big playlist reveal...then maybe I'll tell you.)
But then I looked at Bennett's songs. Oh, Bennett. You and your musical taste. You'd probably be my favorite student if you were in my English class right now, and you'd stick around after class and we'd talk about our favorite bands and concerts.
One particular song from Bennett's playlist stood out to me right away. Because, not only do I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this song, but it's also featured on the playlist for IN REAL LIFE, the book of my heart that is taking a little breather right now. This song just speaks to me. It gets me right in the feels.
So, yeah, it's all about HERE WE ARE (CHANCER) BY SILVERSUN PICKUPS
I can't even handle the fact that I have never seen Silversun Pickups live. How has this happened, universe?! And after watching this live performance? Um...this needs to change, stat. Silversun, come back to LA like yesterday, please.
