Blue Skies by Tamara Allen - My Thoughts

Blue Skies - Tamara Allen

Time travel stories usually make me cross my eyes more than once as I try to wrap my head around all the 'what if's and paradoxes that come up.  Blue Skies was no different but be that as it may, I still enjoyed it a lot.  


I picked Blue Skies up because it was getting a decent bit of buzz  in the Romance portion of my Twitter feed.  It was recced as a time travel romance with a prominently featured second couple that was m/m.  I had read a couple of the author's short stories and quite enjoyed them, so, I picked up the book.  When I finally got around to reading it this week, imagine my surprise to find out it wasn't quite as advertised!  *LOL*


I would describe Blue Skies as a time travel adventure with a romantic secondary plot.  Or plots.  Because there ARE two couples.  I think that maybe the intention was to give both couples equal time, but in my opinion, I think the m/m couple got more attention and page time.  And the romances aren't really the main story here.  It's the time travelling.  


I liked the characters a lot.  Especially Neil, the present day high school teacher.  I liked his snarky grumpiness.  :)


Now, be warned, there is not a lot of sex in the book and what there is of it is rather mild.  Mind you, the author does a lovely job with the kisses.  So if you're in the mood for a time travelling adventure with a dash or two of romance thrown in the mix, you could do far worse than Blue Skies.
