Out Of Time by Jen McLaughlin

The Synopsis of ‘Out Of Time’:

Desperate to keep him…

I’ve finally gotten everything I ever wanted: love, freedom, happiness, and, most importantly, Finn. Our love is everything I expected it to be and more. We’ve finally found each other, but the world seems determined to tear us apart. We thought my father was the only obstacle between us, but now it’s the military. With Finn’s departure looming, we’re squeezing in every moment together before we run out of time.

Trying to make every moment count…

Being Carrie’s bodyguard was one thing. Being her boyfriend is another. Every day she’s mine is a day the sun shines in my life. Yet our time together is running out. Her father will never think a tattooed Marine will be good enough, so I’ll do whatever it takes to be worthy of her love. But the road will take me away from the girl who makes me feel alive–the girl I can’t live without.

Time only gets us so far…


My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘OUT OF TIME’:

I truly enjoyed reading ‘Out Of Time’, the sequel to ‘Out Of Line’ by Author Jen McLaughlin because any novel that can invoke strong feelings whether happy or sad, deserves praise.  As the reader, there is a good chance you will find yourself emotional invested with the main characters Carrie Wallington and Griffin ‘FINN’ Coram. You’ll be happy to know that you will read the story in the two main characters’ P.O.V.’s(Point of views).

The previous book left us with a cliffhanger phone call that Finn received from his CO in the Marines.  The story left us wondering what would happen? Was it a phone call about a possible deployment? Did Carrie’s father, a U.S. Senator, find out about the new blossoming romance between Carrie and Finn? The cliffhanger wasn’t a bad one since the story continued a few months later with the sequel novel.  We got the answer. And boy, did we get the answer.  Emotions were high, both good and bad.  At times you were left wondering if Carrie and Finn could handle the outcome of that phone call and everything else that occurred from that change of events.

Speaking from experience, relationships are tested constantly but when something is ready to give a relationship the ultimate test of possibly living apart for any amount of time, emotions run it’s ‘rocky road’ course.  Carrie get’s a visit from her parents  during a time when all she wants to do is spend every moment she can with Finn.  While Finn prepares to get answers for the questions of his possible future,  he is left trying to keep his secret relationship with Carrie low key from his boss and her father, Senator Wallington.  Find out what happens and get your answers to the questions you were left with at the end of ‘Out Of Line’.  Most will be answered in ‘Out Of Time’ but at the end of the story, you are left wanting to see what will become of the strong loving relationship between Carrie and Finn. I’m looking forward to the prequel  to this series titled ‘Out Of Mind.’

How I imagined Finn and Carrie while reading ‘OUT OF TIME’!

1 collage Carrie Finn 1



Carrie Wallington’s thoughts:  I had a hot, surfing, tattooed, bike-riding Marine for a boyfriend.  Even better?  He loved me as much as I loved him.  We were invincible.  As long as we had each other.

Finn Coram’s thoughts:  She always dived in to new things with wide-open arms, never showing a hint of fear.  Hell, she’d even done that with me.  Just kind of opened up and accepted me for what I was.  That never ceased to amaze me.

Finn Coram’s thoughts:  She was supposed to be with a trust fund baby.  One who had money and wealth and recognition.  Me?  I so wasn’t that guy.  I never would be.

Finn to Carrie:  “I’ve never been scared of anything before.  Guns.  Surfing.  War.  But now I have the biggest fear of all – losing you.”

Carrie Wallington’s thoughts:  …how many times have you looked at a couple and known they were completely in love just from the way they looked at one another?  If ever a girl looked at a guy that way, it had to be Finn and me.

Finn and Carrie: “I missed you.  So I may or may not have been sniffing your sweater right before you came.”-Finn.
“That’s way too cute.”-Carrie.
“Are you sure? It might just be creepy.”-Finn.
“I’m positive as a proton that it’s cute and not even the slightest bit creepy.”-Carrie.
“I missed hearing that phrase…”-Finn. 🙂

Finn and Carrie:  “I have a new favorite word now.“-Finn.
“Oh?  And what might that be?”-Carrie.
