A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year
“This book kept me so captivated... Ms. Maverick's imagination is superb.”
— USA Today on WIRED
Romance and time-travel blend together in this fast-paced tale of twisted fate.
L. Roxanne Zaborovsky is about to discover that fate is comprised of an infinite number of wires that can be manipulated, and that she's not the one at the controls. From the roguishly charming Mason Merrick--a shadow from her past--to the dangerously seductive Leonardo Kaysar, she's barely even holding on.
But Roxy's got hidden strength she can use, and with the help of her best friend Katharine, she just might figure out which wire of reality is the one that will end with her getting the right guy and the right future.
OPEN YOUR MIND...
Mason Merrick was right there. I could feel him there before he ever said a word. A soft thump reverberated against the door, and I could imagine Mason’s palms right up against mine on the other side. Breathlessly, I stared at my hands, slowly splaying my fingers as I knelt on the ground.
What do you want from me? I wondered.
“I’m going to back off, okay? Give you a chance to settle... I don’t want you to worry. I’ll come back tomorrow,” Mason said. His voice was low and level. He knew I was close enough to hear, and his words were strangely intimate, divided and huddled though we were.
“You’re going to have to open your mind, Roxanne,” he finally said, and then he struck the door hard as he stood up.
I flinched, my heart pounding. But there wasn’t anything more, nothing besides the sound of footsteps fading. I didn’t understand what the hell had just happened. I didn’t have a clue what Mason Merrick was trying to pull off or what his motives could possibly be. Now he’d left me alone, as I’d asked him to, and it was a solitary confinement with which I was all too familiar.
Open my mind, he’d said.
I’d be a liar if I denied that part of me was glad he was coming back.
