Ken and Melissa are at the dawn of a magnificent life together. A passionate romance has led them to the doorstep of marriage. While searching for the perfect wedding present for Melissa, Ken stumbles into a mysterious shop. There, he is given an extraordinary opportunity – to look in on Melissa when she was a girl. Ken has always wished he could have known Melissa from the day she was born and this seems like an incredible blessing. Until he discovers a terrible secret in Melissa’s past, one so awful she has found it impossible to mention to him.
Now Ken has another extraordinary opportunity. He can go back in time and change the horrible event that has left an indelible mark on Melissa. He can free her of this burden – but doing so could change things so completely that they might never meet. Ken has repeatedly told Melissa that he would do anything for her. But would he truly do anything?
This is a love story told from a male point of view. I haven’t really read a story like this before, and was impressed at how genuine it felt. Ken’s voice was very realistic feeling, and very romantic. His desire to make Melissa’s life better was very sweet.
I was surprised that Ken didn’t put more thought into the consequences of his actions. He was extremely surprised and upset and what happened afterward, but didn’t seem to even consider what would happen before he jumped in and made his changes. For being a logical person, this seemed like a huge thing to overlook.
I thought all his actions afterward where disappointing. He became a bit creepy and definitely less likable. I didn’t really like the empty character that Melissa became either.
Overall, this was a refreshing love story with a male protagonist. Ken’s actions were all done in the name of love and the desire to do good, even if his actions had some unintended consequences.
