Tempest is the first book from new author, Julie Cross. It is also the first book in the Tempest series. When I read the concept for this book, I got excited. Instantly, I thought of the movie, Jumper. I knew I needed to check this book out right away. Well sadly, the book was just alright.
The romance between Jackson and Holly was so, so. It felt like Jackson had to really work at making Holly like him in the beginning. Then with all of the jumping around that Jackson did, it was hard for me to connect with him and Holly version 007. I liked Holly version 009 better. This was the present Holly who Jackson already had a relationship with and was trying to save.
The beginning of the book was good but then it slowed down for me when Jackson jumped back to the past. I had to do some jumping of my own and flash ahead a bit. The ending did tie nicely as a lead up to the next book, Vortex.
