Synopsis:  The Valiant was supposed to save us. Instead, it triggered the end of the world.

Earth is in shambles. Everyone, even the poorest among us, invested in the Valiant’s space mining mission in the hopes we’d be saved from ourselves. But the second the ship leaves Earth’s atmosphere, our fate is sealed. The alien invasion begins. They pour into cities around the world through time portals, possessing humans, forcing us to kill one another.

And for whatever reason, my brother is their number one target.

Now the fate of the world lies in the hands of me, a seventeen-year-old girl, but with the help of my best friend, Justin―who’s suddenly starting to feel like more―maybe if we save my brother, we can save us all…

My Review: The one thing that I want to say about this book is OMG THAT COVER!! I did a promo to this one a while ago and I just fell so in love with this cover.  The next thing I want to let you know is that this is very heavy with the romance aspect of the story.  It's not overly explicit it's just that the romance is at the forefront of the story.  

This story was so full and amazing we get aliens, time travel, and other science fiction aspects and OMG this book did it so well!! I could not put it down and I was so happy to get a chance to read this.  The start of this book is very fast paced and I wished it would have been a little slower. But it does serve to get the story going and get you into the story at large.  That is pretty much my only issue with this book was that the start was just a little to fast.  

The rest of the story and the characters were just so spot on and I loved every second of it.
