Crossing in Time by D L Orton book one in the Between Two Evils series.

About the book
If someone took everything you live for, how far would you go to get it back?
They say that love transcends time...  But what if your lover is murdered, and you're given the chance to go back in time to warn his much-younger twin? She agrees to go, knowing it will kill her in a matter of days, because it gives her one last chance to be with the man she loves. Except he doesn't believe her! In fact, he thinks she's one fry short of a Happy Meal. Oh, and she's suppose to save the world while she's at it. Go figure.

This offbeat tale is about falling madly in love when one is too cynical for such things, letting go of pessimism when it's the last life jacket on a sinking ship, and racing against the clock when one doesn't have the proper footwear. It's a coming-of-age story for old fogeys, a how-to-make-love guide for diehard celibates, and a laugh-out-loud tragedy with a hopeful twist.

My review
By a weird twist of fate I accepted this book for review both in Kindle and on Audio format.  I don't know why I did that but boy am I glad I did it.
Here is the thing.  I do NOT get book boyfriends.  The entire concept for me is a bit weird and ahm... disconcerting.  But I do have a THING for male voices.  And the male narrator in this book as Diego sure made my knees weak. 
Mainly a love story the book was good, really good but as an audiobook with the extra dimension of not only Diego but also Lizzies voices as well as a host of other people I was enchanted with the story. 
The risk with a time travel book always lies primarily in the fact that the author needs to keep the reader rooted as well as show growth in the characters and when jumping back and forth that may not be the easiest thing to do although it sounds as if it should since certain current situation can be explained better and the author used this exactly to explain that even if it becomes known that a bad character trait has its roots in the past and was formed due to...not withstanding... and I loved this.  Because even if every single detail were explained we still would not have known. 
Ok back to the voice of still my beating heart.

    I love the part about "book boyfriends"! LOL. I had to tell Noah Michael Levine (the male narrator) about your comment right away. That guy is SO talented!
