Welcome to author Karen Michelle Nutt

 
Two Worlds Collided

GENRE:  time travel romance/ rock star fantasy




BLURB:

Evie Reid, on a whim, agrees to travel back in time to 1997 to change bad boy Bellamy Lovel's path of destruction. She's smart with a college degree, but she's still fan-girl crazy for the rock band, Civilized Heathens. Evie knows despite all Bellamy's smiles and enthusiasm on the stage, he's destined to end it all on one lonely night in a hotel room unless she can change his path.

Bellamy isn't keen on having Evie as his personal assistant, hired by his band mates to watch over him, and keep him on schedule. However, there is something about the woman that sparks his interest, despite his best to ignore her. When darkness threatens to consume him, he realizes she may be the only light that will chase the shadows away.


Excerpt:
Evie stood in the center of their clasped hands like they were going to play a game of London Bridge is Falling Down. The nursery rhyme seemed almost fitting. However, she wouldn't be repairing a bridge, but a life. Making it stronger in hopes that despair didn't weaken the mind where irrational decisions lay in wait to destroy. Evie stood nose to nose with the cardboard cutout of Lovel. It seemed creepy to be staring into those baby blue eyes and smiling face when she was about to take on a mission to save him from killing himself.

"If you zap us to oblivion, I'm going to be so mad at you," Lisa grumbled.

Kelsey ignored her and began the spell, "Send Emerson Violet Reid back to August 3, 1997, before Bellamy Kendrick Lovel drew his last breath." She went on and recited something that Evie didn't understand, something old and foreign, but as Kelsey spoke the words, the air around them felt different, heavy and charged. She gripped the necklace tighter and her gaze shifted to the cardboard Bellamy lookalike. The world tilted, making her dizzy and Kelsey's voice grew farther away. Then she felt a surge of wind around her, and a light so bright she shielded her eyes. Darkness blasted her senses next, and her body felt weightless as it zoomed through a black void. Sounds blasted her from every side and she wanted to cover her ears but couldn't move. She was at the mercy of whatever force was driving her away from her friends. 

Review: 

Everyone has dreamed of going back and changing things. What if it were possible? Evie’s favorite rock singer died when she was a young woman who was working as a nurse. She is now the head of his fan club, and she and her friends remember the beloved singer from a decade earlier. Then the chance of a lifetime comes and. Evie can go back and save him. Years before, she had had the chance to accompany him with his band in order to keep him on schedule, but she had turned the job down. This time, she won’t. Perhaps she can be enough of an influence to save his life. Will it be safe to do so? How will he react to her?

            This is an exciting story about second chances. Both Evie and Bellamy, her beloved singer, are well-developed characters. The interaction between them is realistic and interesting. A reader wonders, while perusing this story, if Evie will be successful, and even if she is, will she go back to her time and remember the past, or will she live those years all over again? Perhaps she will not save him but will learn something important. Time travels can go many ways. Is there a single timeline or many simultaneous ones? These are questions one might consider while reading about Evie’s and Bellamy’s adventure. Without giving away the ending, it can be said that the pace is quick. This is a fast, easy read with its steamy moments. Character development is weaved nicely around actions that lead to an exciting ending. For those who love time travel stories, this one will leave you happy that you picked it up.
