I have read these time travel novellas out of order, so it was nice to finally read book one in the series and see how everything got started. I have really enjoyed this fun collection. The books all had a good spiritual thread in them pointing to God. And although the stories were short, the characters were relatable and the romances felt believable to me in each book.
In Max, the main character, Maxwell Ballard, comes forward in time. I liked that Olivia actually saw him appear, so that that she was more inclined to believe that he was from the past. I loved how excited Max was to experience life in the modern world. He was not one to bemoan what was missing from the past, but embraced and hoped for the future.
The sweet connection that grew between Max and Olivia was quick, since the novella was not long. However, it felt genuine and I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions between these two characters.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
