Where I Got It: My shelf (amazon freebie)

Everyone thinks I’m a genius.

Everyone is wrong.

Sure, I finished Harvard at eighteen and now make crazy money at a hedge fund. But that’s not because I’m unusually smart or hard-working.

It’s because I cheat.

You see, I have a unique ability. I can go outside time into my own personal version of reality—the place I call “the Quiet”—where I can explore my surroundings while the rest of the world stands still.

I thought I was the only one who could do this—until I met her.

My name is Darren, and this is how I became entangled with all the Russians and learned that I’m a Reader.

What a unique concept!! I had to check it it was why not?

We follow Darren who has a crazy ability that allows him to go outside time into a frozen reality. He can explore his surrounding while the rest of world is frozen. He thought he was the only one who could this...until he met her. 

Can you imagine having such a power? Seems like such a cool tool especially when it comes to a stressful moment. I would love to have a few moments to just pause everything. It would've been nice for my college years ;) 

I liked Darren. He was an idiot sometimes and he for sure used his powers for his own personal gains...which can you blame him? Why not? I know I would especially when I was in college. 

Gah. I was not a fan of Mira. She is a hot-head and I felt bad for her brother who had to deal with her. He was adorable and it was enduring how dedicated he was to her, but my goodness I wanted to shake some sense into her thick head. Maybe I'll like her more in book 2. 

Yes, I am tempted to read the next book mainly and only for how everything ended. LIKE WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA? YOU CANNOT DO THIS TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!

In the end, this was a good read. I enjoyed the concept and Darren. I hope I grow to like Mira more in the next one. I'll give this 4 stars.
