Blog Tour: Remember Yesterday (Forget Tomorrow #2) by Pintip Dunn

rememberyesterdaytour
Today is my stop during the blog tour for Remember Yesterday (Forget Tomorrow #2) by Pintip Dunn! I’ll share my review of the book and there’s an excerpt. Remember Yesterday is the sequel to the NYT Bestselling and RITA™ Award-winning book, Forget Tomorrow. You can read my review of Forget Tomorrow here.

remember-yesterdayTitle: Remember Yesterday
Author: Pintip Dunn
Series: Forget Tomorrow #2
Rating: 3.75 stars
Genres: Young Adult Science Fiction? Dystopia

Blurb:
The sequel to the sci-fi hit Forget Tomorrow is a twisting, turning roller-coaster ride—the perfect sci-fi futuristic read.

Seventeen-year-old Jessa Stone is the most valuable citizen in Eden City. Her psychic abilities could lead to significant scientific discoveries — if only she’d let TechRA study her. But after they kidnapped and experimented on her as a child, cooperating with the scientists is the last thing Jessa would do.

But when she discovers the past isn’t what she assumed, Jessa must join forces with budding scientist Tanner Callahan to rectify a fatal mistake made ten years ago. She’ll do anything to change her past — even if it means aligning herself with the enemy she swore to defeat.

My Review:
Remember Yesterday is the next instalment in the Forget Tomorrow series by Pintip Dunn. I liked the first book and after that horrific ending I was excited to get stuck into the next book. However, I felt an immediate disconnect when I opened my Kindle to discover this book was narrated by Jessa ten years later. Now, this does make sense on one level (don’t want to spoil the story so I’m being vague on purpose) but I still felt let-down. Not sure the author could have written it any other way though.

I missed Logan so much in this book, but Tanner was an awesome male substitute. Jess was probably more likable than Callie as the MC but it did take me some time to warm up to these characters and this story.

The first half dragged for me and I felt the story was too similar to the first book but things really ramped up a few notches in the second half and I became immersed in the plot and addicted to the characters. The end few chapters were exhilarating and I was totally hooked. The plot was a lot less predictable in the second half and I really enjoyed it.

Now I love Jess and Tanner and I’m so happy with the reemergence of some of my fav characters toward the end.

I adore Pintip’s style of writing and I have no issues there. Her world building is decent and well crafted as was character development.

In summary, after a bit of a disconnect and a slow start, I became engrossed in the story and the characters lives and I’m definitely invested in continuing this series.

Actual rating 3.75 stars.

Excerpt:
I lift my eyes to meet his, and I reach into the future—his future. The vision pours into me. The future Tanner grabs me and kisses me. Without warning, without hesitation. It is hot and searing and exquisite. And I like it. Oh, how I like it.
“No!” I fall out of the vision and scoot away from him, so far that I approach the edge of the platform. My pulse is thundering; my nerves are jumping. Oh, Fates. What’s wrong with me? Is it because I don’t want him to kiss me? Or because I want it too much?
His eyes turn watchful. “Come back here, Jessa. You’re too close to the sky.”
I look into the open space, fluffy with wads of cotton-ball clouds. I take a breath, hoping to inhale some of the sky’s serenity. He doesn’t know about the kiss. Why would he? In the vision, he acted impulsively, without premeditation. The desire to kiss me hasn’t arisen in him yet. Maybe I can prevent it from cropping up altogether.
“Look, you don’t want to kiss me,” I babble, staying where I am. And hope I sound more reasonable than I feel. “It’s only because we talked about kissing the other day. When you talk about something, you give it life. Make it real. Like an annoying song you can’t get out of your head.”
He creeps toward me, his eyes flicking between my face and the sky. “So you can’t get the idea of kissing me out of your head?”
“I said it was annoying. Like a song. Not based on anything real.”
He stops five feet from the edge of the platform. “So let me get this straight. You saw into the future and we kissed. Right?”
“Y-yes,” I stutter, shocked that he guessed the truth so easily. “But it doesn’t have to happen that way,” I add quickly. “As my sister proved, we’re in control of our own fate. We can make any future we wish.”
“Unless this is our Fixed.” His voice is low, rough. And yet, every syllable imprints into my memory forever. “Unless this kiss is so important, it happens in every one of our worlds.”
“It’s just a kiss. How can it be that important?”
His eyes glitter with the challenge. With one last look at the platform’s edge, he crawls to me, slowly but steadily. “The path of our particular world might depend on this kiss. Would you risk our future just to be stubborn?”
And then, he’s right in front of me. He rests his hands lightly on my back. They slide down to my waist, until his fingers brush against the strip of bare skin between my pants and top. I shiver, and my skin pebbles into a million goose bumps. He pulls me against him. So much of my body is touching his that I can’t think; I can’t breathe. All I can do is feel. His trembling breath. My hammering heart. His shaking hands—or hell, maybe that’s me, vibrating against his touch.
Our lips are inches apart. Time blends together. You couldn’t move me from this spot if the world were crashing down around us.
“I thought I wasn’t your type,” I whisper.
“You’re not,” he says. “But for the fate of our world, I’m willing to make the sacrifice.”
And then, he closes the gap between us.

Imagine a world where your destiny has already been decided…by your future self.

It’s Callie’s seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else, she’s eagerly awaiting her vision―a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they’re meant to be. A world-class swimmer. A renowned scientist.

Or in Callie’s case, a criminal.

In her vision, she sees herself murdering her gifted younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested and placed in Limbo―a prison for those destined to break the law. With the help of her childhood crush, Logan, a boy she hasn’t spoken to in five years, she escapes the hellish prison.

But on the run from her future, as well as the government, Callie sets in motion a chain of events that she hopes will change her fate. If not, she must figure out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all.

Callie herself.

Blurb:
THE TRUTH DOESN’T ALWAYS SET YOU FREE

I’ve fallen hard for an alien, but he’s harboring secrets.
Massive secrets that threaten the very essence of humanity.
How can I give him my heart when his race plans on taking my future?

Sadie Owens has been slowly dying inside. Bit by bit, piece by piece, day by day. Trapped in a life she hates, she relies on only one person–herself.

Despised by her family and betrayed by an unscrupulous government, Sadie dreams of a different life. When she is chosen to participate in the government’s new social experiment, she is ecstatic at the prospect of spending six months in Thalassic City, the shiny new city under the sea.

Immediately drawn to Logan Chandler, Sadie is captivated by the beautiful boy with the ocean-blue eyes. Logan seems to embody everything that has been forbidden, but he isn’t all he appears to be.

Confused over Logan’s true intentions and concerned when best friend Jenna starts transforming in front of her eyes, Sadie partners with newcomer Jarod in a bid to uncover the government’s real agenda. The truth is more shocking than anything she could ever have imagined.

When Sadie finally understands why the Saven walk among us, will it be too late to save her heart and the human race?

Excerpt From Saven Deception:
“Come, sit,” he says, his fingers curling gently around the tips of mine.
I plop down on the beanbag beside him and yelp.
“You are hurt.” He frowns. “Let me take a look.”
He scrunches the edge of my shirt, but I clamp down on his hand. There’s no way I’m admitting that it’s my butt that’s sore, and no way am I ready to let him inspect that part of my anatomy. Yet.
Get you, my inner devil teases.
“I’m fine.” I pin him with a “drop it” look.
“You are so stubborn.” Shaking his head, he unscrews the cap from his bottle.
“I’m stubborn?” I level an incredulous look his way. “Have you not looked in the mirror recently, dude?”
He laughs and the sound sends warmth flooding through me.
“You’ve a lovely laugh,” I blurt out. Ohmigod! I can’t believe I said something so cheesy.
“I do?” He looks amused.
“Yep.” I’m resorting to one-word replies now for fear of what else might inadvertently tumble out of my mouth.
He stares intently at me, his fiery eyes penetrating my soul. The cord buzzes with anticipation. I might’ve forgotten how to breathe again. “You are beautiful, through and through.”
With each passing second, my heart pounds faster and faster. He inclines toward me and I move closer. Butterflies are throwing a mad party in the pit of my stomach. Like magnets, we inch closer and closer still. As my pulse throbs, he zeroes in on my lips and his eyes linger there.
I’ve imagined this moment so many times without ever really believing I’d get to experience it. Now that I’m here, seconds away from my first real kiss, I’m terrified of the strength of my emotion. I never knew it could be like this. That I could feel such a strong connection to a boy; that my body could tremble with such intense desire. And our lips haven’t even met yet.
We are a hairsbreadth from one another. I bridge the final distance and close my eyes. His fingers brush my lips and I’m tingly all over. Reopening my eyes, I see the adoration glistening in his gaze. For me.
“Ala beatra.” The words roll seductively and respectfully off his tongue.
I’ve no idea what it means, or what language he’s speaking, but it sounds beautiful.
And like a form of worship.
Though it’s possible I’m deluding myself.
He closes his eyes and presses his mouth to mine. His touch is feather soft and it unravels me. I kiss him back equally gently and he moans softly. His lips exert more pressure as he draws me in flush with his solid chest. I’ve never felt this much emotion before. It’s almost too much, but at the same time, not enough.
Gaining in confidence, I encircle my arms around his neck and melt into him, savoring the feel of his body as it presses against mine. Angling his head, he extends the kiss, and it grows in intensity and fire. I’m matching him, kiss for kiss, and my need for him is reaching an all-time high. I can’t get enough of him. He is everywhere, and yet I need more.

By Siobhan Davis

Blurb:
THE TRUTH CAN’T HIDE FOREVER

To protect Logan, I have no choice but to deceive him.
But I’m not the only one hiding the truth.
Will our love survive all the secrets and lies?

Enemy alien ships crowd the skies over Earth while the world waits with bated breath. The Saven have been exposed, and where once they were abhorred, they are now championed as our greatest ally and our only possible savior.

Logan and Sadie have been separated, and the longer he is gone, the more their love is tested by duty, doubts, and deception.

Sadie and Jarod have infiltrated the highest levels of government, but they are playing a dangerous game. Surrounded by people with conflicting agendas—hell-bent on using her for their own aim—Sadie is confused when the lines between good and evil are blurred. It’s impossible to tell friend from foe, and no one can be trusted.

When the full extent of the experiments taking place in Sector Twenty is disclosed, Sadie can no longer sit back and watch as the lower classes face a horrific fate. Racing to save her loved ones and mankind, she risks her own safety and the love she’s waited a lifetime for to do the right thing.

But no one thought to save her from herself.

Blurb:
THE TRUTH HURTS

My mother was right to fear me.
I’m an abomination.
And the world should be very afraid.

Sadie has been kidnapped by the Tor, the vindictive alien race who destroyed Thalassic City. As her past, present, and future collides, her worst nightmare looks set to become her shocking new reality.

A deliberate pawn in leader Griselda’s vengeful game, Sadie is horrified to learn the truth about her heritage and the destiny that’s already been mapped out for her. Refusing to cooperate, she risks paying the ultimate price for her defiance.

Love for Logan is her only motivation to stay alive. Saving him is the only thing that matters—the fate of the world depends upon it. While he may never forgive her, she’s determined to protect him. Until her dying breath.

About The Heir and the Human

The Heir and the HumanThe Heir and the Human (The Saven series #3.1)
by Siobhan Davis

Axton’s existence was a lonely one until his mother brought Sadie into his life. Now, she’s the center of his universe, and he’ll do everything in his power to protect her.

But Griselda’s evil plans cast a dark shadow over their love, threatening the future he so desperately craves. With separation looming, Ax is preparing to sacrifice everything for the girl he loves. It’s a high-stakes gamble, and he needs to stay ahead of the game if he’s to outsmart his conniving mother.

Sadie has been his savior.

Now it’s his turn to save her.

Note from the author:
This optional novella relays Axton and Sadie’s backstory, and it is narrated solely from Ax’s point of view.

Excerpt:

I step toward the railing as a lone figure materializes out of the corner of my eye.
Logan’s head whips up, and he sends me a startled look. Without hesitation, he advances toward me and I inwardly cuss. Propping my elbows up on the railing, I gaze upon the eerie blank canvas outside.
“I didn’t take you for a rule breaker,” Logan says, leaning over the railing alongside me.
“I could say the same about you.” I send him a sharp look, unsure if he’s teasing me or not.
“Yeah, ordinarily I’m not, but I like to sneak up here every year. It’s quiet, peaceful. Helps me deal with the memories.” His Adam’s apple jumps in his throat.
I hadn’t thought about that. How hard it must be for him to return here, year after year, knowing that it was among the last moments he spent with his mom. According to rumors, Queen Tayla was killed mere hours after returning with Logan from the Heir’s Summit.
“I’m sorry.” I’m not sure why I said that. Perhaps it’s because subconsciously I’m hyper aware of all the things I owe him an apology for.
He shrugs. “I thought it would get easier but every year is as hard as the previous year. I can’t help thinking of all the different ways it could’ve gone.”
“I can relate.” Although I haven’t lost a parent, it often feels like that. I’ve never stopped mourning the “idea” of my father. Never stopped pining for motherly affection. I’m pathetic, I know.
Logan opens his mouth to say something but clamps it shut again. We stand, side by side, staring out into the gloomy blackness surrounding us, not speaking. After a while, Logan twists around to face me. “What’s it like to be in love?”
My eyes pop wide at the drastic change in subject. “What?”
“You never even glance at any of the girls here. And I’ve heard what some of the others have said over the years, about you being in love with your mate. Is it true?”
Damned fate. Of all the times to ask me this. Why, all of a sudden, is he so interested in me and Sadie? Does he know something? Has he discovered Sadie’s identity?
I fold my arms across my chest as I pin him with a suspicious look. “Why do you ask?”
“I’ve never felt anything even close to love,” he admits. I’m not that surprised. While Logan has his fair share of admirers, and I’ve seen him indulge on more than one occasion, he always gives the impression that he could take it or leave it. There is a faraway look in his eye. “I always hoped I’d get to experience true love. But my father is starting to put pressure on me to pick a bride, and based on what I’d seen of my parent’s marriage, I don’t have high hopes. But I heard that you were actually in love with the girl chosen for you, and”—he shrugs—“I guess that gives me some hope.”
I turn and face the railing, unable to look him in the eye. I don’t respond. There are no words of comfort I can provide.
“Why do we hate one another?” he offers after a bit.
I shrug, not even looking at him.
“That’s very ignorant, even for you.” A snide layer slips into his tone.
“What do you want me to say, Logan?” I eyeball him. “It’s just one of those things.” Oh, and yeah, I’ve stolen your girl, and my mother wants to end you sometime soon.
“I remember what I thought of you the first time I saw you,” he continues. I’m expecting him to say how much he pitied poor bastard me. So, I’m almost knocked off my feet when he replies completely differently. “I couldn’t shake the feeling that you had taken something of mine. Something you had no right to. It’s lingered over the years, that all-consuming feeling. And I feel it now. What are you hiding, Axton? What do you have that’s mine?”
