He doesn’t move, studying me with an intensity I can’t explain. And that’s when it happens – the moment I’m blindsided by the imminent collision of time and fate. For one, surreal moment my sense of self bleeds away, and I become all that I’ve seen, and all that will come to be at my choosing.***Synopsis: It’s been two years since Paige Prescott discovered the gift that nearly got her committed. But now she knows better than to tell anyone about the visions that plague her: futures for which she’s fated, unless she can change them first. But when a tragic event unfolds on the last day of senior year, Paige’s carefully crafted façade shatters, plunging her into a dangerous new reality where her gift is a coveted weapon – and she learns she's not the only one with a secret. Now, torn between a world she thought she knew and one she wished she didn’t, Paige must rely on her gift – and the guidance of a veiled enigma – to outmaneuver a formidable kind. But if she wants to reclaim her future, she’ll have to make a stunning choice: one bound by love, loyalty, and lies – And the power of timing fate.*** “Look, why don’t we start over?” he says, gesturing for me to return to the seat beside him. It’s more of a directive than an invitation, but as his eyes lock with mine there’s no trace of his customary superiority. Instead, there’s only honesty. And that something that makes my stomach squeeze. “Please,” he adds softly, which is all it takes for my legs to override my brain and walk over there.“Crap.”“Sorry?”Apparently, my brain-to-mouth filter is a casualty of the override. “Nothing,” I mutter, waving him off. “You asked to start over – so start.”A slow smile spreads across his features. It’s a startling transformation, but for all the wrong reasons: his game face is lurking.
