Fast Forward by Juliet Madison

It's that time of the month again. Yep, it's HEA Book Club time. Well, this month Sara (Harlequin Junkie) has selected Fast Forward by Juliet Madison. Everyone is welcome to join the discussion. So, if you would like to join the fun all you have to do is go to http://harlequinjunkie.com at 6pm PST/ 9pm EST.

My thoughts on Fast Forward:

First off Fast Forward reminded me a lot of 13 Going on 30, you know that movie that starred Jennifer Garner who turns 13 and on her birthday wishes she's 30. The next day she wakes up 30 and still has 13 year old mind, but looks older.

Well, Kelli Crawford is about to turn 25, but the day of her birthday she jumps ahead 25 years and now is 50. Eek, talk about a bad dream. She has no clue why she has woken up at 50 years old when she's suppose to be 25 and having the time of her life. Plus, she's about to have a promising career as a model and dating a hot photography, but those things are no where in sight.

As you read the story, what Kelli planned for her future and what her future actually turns out are two completely different lifestyles and she's trying to figure out why. Well, she starts to realize the life that she's destine to live actually isn't bad and learns that she's experiencing a fast forward. Which happens be to something monumental happens and is sent to the future to help her understand why she choose the life she does.

Now you can understand why Fast Forward kind of reminded me of 13 Going on 30. Overall, I enjoyed. I thought it was a cute read with an interesting premise. How would you handle jumping to the future and seeing why your life turned out different from what you plan? I honestly thought Kelli handle the events quite well, better than I would. So, if you loved the movie 13 Going on 30, I'm sure you will enjoy Fast Forward.
