BLOG TOUR: Crossing in Time (Between Two Evils #1) by D.L. Orton

I'm excited to be on the Blog Tour for Crossing in Time by D.L. Orton. This is the first book in the Between Two Evils Series. I was contacted through Twitter to be a part of this by TheWriteReads. I believe this book is available for free right now on Amazon (but that could change). So, I got this book free on Amazon for an honest review. Thanks to TheWriteReads and D.L. Orton for letting me be a part of it.

Title: Crossing in Time (Between Two Evils #1)
Author: DL Orton
Published by: Rocky Mountain Press
Released: April 21, 2015
Source: Review Copy from Author

Synopsis: The past isn't over, it's an opening. The future isn't hidden, it's a trap. 
If she ever wants to see him again, she'll have to take the risk. 
Fall into this "Funny, Romantic & Harrowing" (Publishers Weekly Starred Review) dystopian love story and prepare to encounter a finicky time machine, a mysterious seashell, and a very clever dog (some sex, some swearing, some violence, but no vampires and absolutely NO ditzes!)
When offered a one-way trip to the past, Isabel sacrifices everything for a chance to change the rapidly deteriorating present--and see her murdered lover one last time. When she arrives twenty years in the past, buck naked and mortally wounded, she has 24 hours to convince a stunned but enraptured nineteen-year-old to change their future. Definitely easier said than done, as success means losing him to a brainy, smart-mouthed bombshell (her younger self), and that's a heart breaker, save the world or not.
This offbeat tale is about falling madly in love when one is too cynical for such things, letting go of pessimism when it's the last life jacket on a sinking ship, and racing against the clock when one doesn't have the proper footwear. It's a coming-of-age story for old fogeys, a how-to-make-love guide for diehard celibates, and a laugh-out-loud tragedy with a hopeful twist. (Synopsis from Goodreads)

My Thoughts: This was a fun and funny book! It had a lot of things going on in it. It was told through multiple perspectives, which I enjoyed. It had a dash of time travel and a big cup of romance. I liked it. I thought it was a good time.
This is mainly a romantic tale, the time travel takes a little bit of a backseat to that. There is also sexy times in this book.
I enjoyed the way it was told. It kept me on my toes, made me think about things. It was an adventure for sure. I'd be interested to see where it goes in the next books. It was good.
