Tempest by Julie Cross

Summary:(from goodreads)  The year is 2009. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy… he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies – nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors – it’s just harmless fun.That is… until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years to 2007, but this is not like his previous time jumps. Now he’s stuck in 2007 and can’t get back to the future.Desperate to somehow return to 2009 to save Holly but unable to return to his rightful year, Jackson settles into 2007 and learns what he can about his abilities.But it’s not long before the people who shot Holly in 2009 come looking for Jackson in the past, and these “Enemies of Time” will stop at nothing to recruit this powerful young time-traveler. Recruit… or kill him.Piecing together the clues about his father, the Enemies of Time, and himself, Jackson must decide how far he’s willing to go to save Holly… and possibly the entire world. 
Review: I was a little bit hesitant to start this book because I don't read a lot of scifi books. However, I thought this one was really good. The plot was pretty fast paced especially in the second half. I was immediately drawn in to the story. A few times while I was reading it was hard to make myself put the book down. I just wanted to keep reading until I was done. I was pretty surprised by the turn the plot took in the middle. I added a new dimension of excitement and intensity. The way things ended was sad and I am looking forward to seeing how things play out in the sequel. I also loved all  the characters. Jackson was a really great narrator. I loved his determination to try to fix things, no matter what. Adam and Holly were great as well. i have to admit I am a little bit in love with Adam. i am so excited to read the sequel and find out how this crazy story continues.
