Summary from GoodReads:
An epic romance full of mysteries that transcend time—fans of Romeo and Juliet and The Time Traveler’s Wife will rejoice!
Some loves are not made to last . . . Like Romeo and Juliet, Heloise and Abelard were doomed from the start, and their romance was destined to pass into history. Yet when sixteen-year-old Callie Martin discovers a diary hidden within an antique book, their story—and hers—takes on another life. For the diary leads Callie to the brilliant and handsome August, who is just as mysterious as the secret the diary hides. Their attraction is undeniable. As the two hunt down the truth behind the diary—and that of Heloise and Abelard’s ancient romance—their romance becomes all-consuming. But Callie knows it can’t last . . . love never does. Will their love that burns as bright as a shooting star flame out, or will these star-crossed lovers be able to defy history?
I really didn’t like this book. I did read the whole thing, but I’m pretty sure I sprained my eyes will all the eye rolling I was doing. I hadn’t done any research on this book before I bought it, and had heard nothing about it. I just saw it on the shelf at Barnes and Noble. I admit a large part of the reason I bought this book was because I thought the cover was really pretty.
I thought this might be a similar read to Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz. I really loved Spellbound. But this book, well the story was pretty silly (although, I think the potential was there!), and the writing was not that great. There really wasn’t great character development.
I didn’t really care about either Callie or August (the main characters). The only person I was sort of interested in was Callie’s uncle Harry. Apparently he is quite the matchmaker, and I wouldn’t mind him in my life. But even then, I wasn’t that in love with Harry either.
I’m sorry I can’t be more optimistic about this book, but it was definitely a letdown.
