Book Blurb: 
Destinies collide when two strangers find love in a moment of chaos

Holly is navigating a crowded Los Angeles International Airport terminal when the earthquake hits. Dazed, she fails to notice the ceiling crumbling above her. But in one swift motion, a stranger tackles her, saving her from certain death as tons of debris crash only feet from where they fall, locked in an embrace. Drawn together in a split second, Holly and Oliver find a bond they never could have expected. Can the love built in a single, dramatic moment really be the result of a passion that has spanned many lifetimes?

Review: I really wanted a lot more from this book, especially when it felt like something out of M.J. Rose's mind. If Holly and Oliver were lovers in the past, I wanted something to show that, other than the prologue.

The book read much like a Harlequin Romance with a touch of sex, somewhere in between the regular line or novels and the Presents line. This book was originally published by Loveswept, so the extra bits of lovemaking make sense.

Holly is so darn perfect. I mean she's just so darn nice. You almost don't like her because of it. I mean really, who is that freaking nice! It isn't normal!!!

The same can almost be said for Oliver, but he's a recovered bad boy. (A rich one at that) But again, you have to like him. He's kind. He would do anything for Holly. That's the kind of man, most of us want to find. Oh and he's unbelievably rich.

I found it hard to believe that this book was written in the 90s. I read romance in the 90s, and if it weren't for references to Roseanne Conner (from the tv show Roseanne) and trickle down economics....I'd think that this book were written in a much earlier time period.

I wish more, or really anything would have been done with the reincarnation theme that was hinted at in this book. It would have made it fantastic.

I did love Holly and Oliver's romance, even though some of it was really cliched, especially with the friend that was not a friend thing at the end.

A pleasant read to pass the time on a rainy afternoon.
