Thank you to the authors, Liz and Lisa, and to NetGalley, for the eARC of this book to read and share my review.



Dom is having a very bad day—one he literally can’t escape.

When Dom bumps into Mia, his ex-fiancée whom he hasn’t seen in almost a decade, he believes they’ve been given a second chance and asks her out. When Mia dies tragically on their date, Dom makes a desperate wish: to be given the chance to save her life. And when he wakes the next morning to the shock that she’s alive, he thinks his wish may have been granted. But day after day, no matter what he changes about their time together, she still meets a terrible fate.

Dom frantically searches for answers to save his beloved Mia and rekindle their former love. But the further he digs, the more obsessed he becomes, making him realize that slowing down time may be the only way to see things clearly. As he’s forced to confront the truth about himself and those he’s closest to, Dom vows that he’ll watch Mia die a thousand times if it means he can save her once.



I loved the uniqueness to how this story unfolds and the way in which it was written. It was fun and interesting to read, and was addictive.

The novel starts off in May 2010 where we are introduced to the novels two main characters, Dom and his girlfriend Mia. Then it jumps ahead 10 years, to June 2020. Dom and Mia had ended their relationship all those years ago and Dom feels that she is the one who got away. All these years later, Dom runs into her in a coffee shop, and they begin to talk. They agree to meet up again a couple days later to talk and catch up on everything the other has been up to for the past 10 years. After Mia tragically dies on one of their dates, Dom finds himself waking up the next day only to relive the previous day, the day when she had died on their date. No matter what Dom does, Mia’s fate is the same – she dies. Dom finds himself living that fateful day each day that he wakes up, with her dying, then waking up only to relive that same day again. Dom tries many different things in an attempt to save Mia from her tragic fate, only to become frustrated when nothing he does seems to work and save her.

It was interesting to read about Dom waking up each day only to relive that same day, and seeing him try different things to make the day play out differently. I was curious if he would be able to find something that works and was eager to see if he would be able to save Mia from her fate and actually save her life. I really enjoyed reading about both Dom and Mia as the two main characters in the book, and the unique way this story was written added to the enjoyment of the novel.

Well done Liz and Lisa. Another great novel! I am looking forward to your next one!
