A Destiny Reborn (Prevent the Past, #2) Rebecca Hefner
Lost in a timeline that was never theirs…
Thrust into a world they barely comprehend, two time travelers are forced to survive with only each other as allies.
Claire Finch, the kind, bubbly scientist, has sacrificed her hidden dreams for the cause: to prevent the apocalypse and save the world.
Cyrus Montgomery, a tough, stoic soldier weary from the battle scars of war and barren dystopia.
Together, they traverse the unfamiliar circumstances, both fighting and denying their mutual attraction.
But destiny can be manipulated by unseen forces, and as they navigate the uncharted timeline, they discover a united strength they never possessed apart…and learn that true love ultimately prevails if the warnings of the past are heeded with caution and diligence.
The Prevent the Past series is best read in order. After all, it’s a time travel series that is already pretty complex! But there are steamy love stories, edge of your seat action scenes, and awesome twists if you dig in. Enjoy!

Second book in this series and we find Cyrus and Claire being sent into the past, but a hitch actually sends them back to a different time and without their team!
Quick recap …… we know when the apocalypse hits, we also know who triggers it. So a group of scientists are figuring how to travel in time to stop it from happening. I would recommend reading book one as it does fill in a few gaps.
In book one (A Paradox of Fates) we get to meet Claire and I did hope she would get a story. She comes across as feisty but brainy. She can run circles around Cyrus in the brains department, but bows to Cyrus’s ability to strategic abilities.
Cyrus is a weary soldier, tired of always fighting. But he has a job to do…. Well it’s a job he volunteers for, protect Claire. Claire is a smart scientist, she’s part of the team that are working to right the wrongs of the future. By going into the past they can change the course of history, but there is a group that don’t want the future changed, and spies are everywhere!
Cyrus has fancied Claire ever since he first saw her, but he thinks he’s too old for her, and a battle hardened solider shouldn’t have someone like her!Claire fancies Cyrus. But neither will act on it. So when they are dropped into the incorrect time zone, Claire and Cyrus have to either figure a way to help the future, or stay out of the way so they don’t cause more problems.
Mystery and suspense with a whole lot of time travelling shenanigans. It doesn’t bog us down with too much technology speak! It doesn’t bore us with jumping back and forward unnecessarily. It does give us thrills and a few answers to the previous book and now a few more questions that we hope will be answered in the next book.
It’s steamy, but not at the cost of a good storyline. A few moments that will have you chuckling. And a few moments that will have you wondering where this story will take you.
And now I’m ready for book three……
