Summary from Goodreads:

Trent Astor is many things—orphan, runaway, musician. But what’s most extraordinary about Trent is that he’s a time traveler. His supernatural gift sends him on missions to the past to save unsuspecting victims from harm. However, when he fails to save the life of a young girl, his life changes in ways he could never have dreamed.At eleven-years-old, Cassie Moore suffered through a horrific shooting. Tragically scarred from the ordeal, the once promising tennis prodigy was forced to throw away all hope of a future in tennis. Now, as she begins her senior year of high school, the past continues to haunt her. She struggles to find herself, her self-esteem at an all time low. If only she could resolve the past, she might be able to move on with her life. She never imagined that could be possible until she meets the gorgeous new student in her PE class.





Rematch is the first title of three books of the Vortex series, personally, this book caught my eye for something in special: time travel, and the icing on the cake is that there was romance. A sweet romance and time travel that changed everything.

I really liked this first installment, was very easy and entertaining to read, in part different from what I usually read but I kept constant, the characters are well defined and added some ideas I found interesting. as this story begins? Well, first we have to Cassie, our sweet protagonist, friendly, dedicated and charming, but an unfortunate accident changed the course of their destiny and the other hand we have Trent, a handsome boy, orphaned along with her sister Lorelai, musician and in some moments a time traveler.

What happens if you past than you tried to fix meets you in PE class? Well that is what perhaps inevitably and the fate unites Cassie and Trent. the bad, a secret, the boyfriend of Cassie and ah yep, Trent in the past try to help Cassie.

A mixture of romance, time travel, teenage problems and sometimes humor with some uncertainty, you will find in this book is a nice give and take of the main characters very consistent with the story told by both parties: Cassie and Trent. It gives a modern twist and juvenile time makes you want to keep reading.

The love story is not going fast but not slow, flowing according to how the characters have to accommodate a twist of fate that Trent did not expect to happen and what will makes to Cassie waking from a deep sleep since the accident.

Although sometimes felt like something was missing or left over, the story goes in the right direction, the author's way of writing is very good and their descriptions help clearly see the panorama. To be the beginning of a long history with 3 books and I found it interesting that touch that is needed to attract the reader to follow reading. His characters are easy to love, of identifying and have a favorite, mine: Lorelai and Trent, this pair made ​​my day!

If you like what tender with romantic touches, full of adventure and shaking in time, this book is for you.
