Time is a cruel thief…unless you can steal it back.

As a neurologist, Nick Reilly believes everything can be explained by science.

But he can’t explain her—Quinn Stewart, an irresistible patient who knows things about him she shouldn’t. And insists that at some point, she was his wife.

Something else he can’t explain: he remembers her too.

Quinn wakes each morning remembering new details of the life they shared—and she’s desperate for the dreams to stop. Because with each one, she finds herself craving what she had with Nick more than the life—and the fiancé—she already has.

Nick and Quinn share an attraction neither can deny, but one that might destroy everything.

Just like it did before.


I’m going to try really hard to put all the thoughts I have about this book into some type of coherent thought, but I’m not sure if it’s even possible. I have so many feelings about this book, I feel like I might just word vomit across the page.

Quinn has been dreaming of a stranger whom she’s never met since she was a child. The dreams went away but have suddenly reappeared. In these dreams, she’s living an alternative life, with Nick, a handsome doctor whom she is madly in love with. It’s the type of love that spans generations, that can’t be replaced, and is incredibly rare and hard to find. When compared to her real life, and her actual fiancé, Quinn can’t help but question her true happiness in the life she’s currently created for herself. When a twist of fate lands her in the hospital being cared for by Dr. Nick Reilly, Quinn’s dreams become reality.

I read a lot of romance, and I’ll be honest, sometimes I read something and while I like it, it seems like any old run of the mill romance. I read so many of the same tropes, that at times, it gets to be a bit monotonous. But then when I least expect it, a book comes along that has such an original storyline, and characters that completely leap off the page, that I remember why I love romance so much. And let me tell you, Parallel is one of those books. I have never read a book quite like this one before. It’s so intricately written, with storylines from several different timelines happening at once. But it never felt jumbled or lost. If anything, it sucked me in so fast and so deep I forgot to eat. I neglected housework. I barely had time to read my kids a story. This story was absolutely everything and when I turned the final page, I wanted nothing more than to go back to the beginning and read it all again.

I am desperate for the second book in the duet, and most find out how this all concludes. If you’re questioning whether or not you want to read this book, don’t hesitate. Give it a try. I can promise you will not be disappointed!
