A cruise ship. A beautiful island. Two sexy guys. What could possibly go wrong?
In the Bermuda Triangle—a lot.
Hoping to leave behind the reminders of her crappy life--her father's death years ago, her mother's medical problems, and the loser who’s practically stalking her--seventeen-year-old Autumn Taylor hops on a ship with her sister for a little distraction. When she wakes up in the Bermuda Triangle, she fears she's gone nuts for more than one reason: that loser’s suddenly claiming they're a happy couple... a hot guy is wrapping his arms around her and saying "Happy Anniversary"... and suddenly, she’s full of bruises, losing her hair, and getting IV medication. Autumn visits the ship's doctor, hoping for a pill or a shot to make the craziness go away. Instead, she's warned that these "alternate realities" could become permanent.
She just has to ask herself one question—how the hell is she going to get out of this mess?
I have to start off by saying that this main character Autumn was such a little b*t*h in the beginning. She almost made me put the book down. I'm all for strong female character but not at all into characters who are just plain nasty. And she was so rude and full of herself when I started reading this book. However, throughout the book, she goes through enough to make her switch up her attitude. So I didn't hate her when I finished the book.
This is my first time reading a book that has to do with the Bermuda Triangle. And I must say that I found it quite interesting. I like the theory behind the whole Bermuda Triangle. Well in this book Autumn has a lot of emotional baggage. And she really doesn't handle it well. And I believe because of the way she handles her stress is what makes her the way she is. But when she goes in this cruise with her sister, a lot happened to open up her eyes.
Every day she "wakes" is like living a different life. Each life, Each new reality is more awkward than the other. Each new reality to which she had to adapt to, changed her attitude just a bit for the next one. Having lost her dad when she was younger, she got the chance to see him again in one of these "realities". She talked with him and found the closure she needed to heal. That part made me cry. Because I personally would love another chance to with a loved one. I liked the reality the best. I really liked that she got to spend time with her dad.
But what made this book more interesting was the loves interests. One sweet pushover puppy, the one she's blatantly rude to. And the other bad boy, the one that she just want to pull on his hair when you kisses him. And they're both make these realities interesting. She got to see a different side to both of them. So when her actual reality resumed, her attitude changed. Autumn took the time to re-evaluate herself. That also made me happy. I like that she grew from the beginning of the book to the end of it.
I did breeze through this book. Did I love it? No. Did I enjoy it? Yes, I did. Do I recommend it? Yes, I would. It's definitely an interesting read but I guess I wanted a bit more to it, maybe more actual romance. However, I definitely would read another of Ms. Miller's novel because she did succeed in keeping me reading. I give this book a 3.5 stars.
