It had been awhile since I had read 15 Minutes, the first book in the Rewind series, so I went back and re-read it before I started Plugged. Yes, I am a serial reader. First off, I forgot just how AMAZING 15 Minutes was. I am NOT, repeat NOT a Young Adult book lover. I have exceptions though and the Rewind Series is one of them. I actually think it’s a travesty that this series isn’t already a tv series or miniseries. There is so much mindless junk on tv, I would love to see something like this – intelligent and intriguing.
Anyway. Lara is even more kick-ass in Plugged. Two years have passed since the end of Book 1 and Lara is 18. She’s jaded, worn down and basically has anger coming out her pores. She’s pretty much lost everything and is having a hard time figuring out what is real and what Rex is manipulating her to see. Her biggest problem? Does she care. It’s so much easier in her virtual world. I love Lara’s determination, her drive and how strong she is. I would like to think I would be the same if anyone dared to mess with my family. My favorite part of the authors writing is that she paints a vivid picture for me. I am from the Boston area and the author takes note of actual landmarks and references that snap me right back and I can actually visualize where Lara is and how it would look from her perspective. It’s beyond awesome. I can’t wait for the third book and a little birdie told me (ok I saw it on her Facebook page) that she is knee deep in writing the next book. I can’t wait to see what is next for Lara and Donovan. They are truly my new favorite literary couple.
Lara Crane is stuck in her mind, in an indefinite stream of timelines where her life is perfect, just the way she wants it to be. But it’s not real. It’s all made up to give those who want to use time travel for their own personal ambitions. To give time to finish their experiments and turn Lara into a deadly time travel assassin.
If Lara wants to survive and to stop them, she needs to risk her own mind and soul to get out of a prison so perfect it completes the one dream Lara has always had.

I could write this in the third person. I could tell you what I like, where I was born, and what my favorite things are.
But instead, I’ll say I don’t want to write like everyone else. I don’t want to craft stories you’ve read a thousand times before. I want my novels to be a cinematic experience, blending themes, genres, and situations unlike any you’ve ever read.
I want to break the rules. I want you to break out in a cold sweat as you read my books out of fear, love, and excitement. I want my books to be an experience. When you finish, I want you to feel something. Good or bad.
If you do, then I’ll have succeeded. If not, I’ll keep trying.
