This was a fun, unique romance book that I finished in one sitting. There was a little bit of everything in it: anti-aging from the future, sexual encounters, drugs and ultimately some romance. There were also many interesting questions that were posed throughout the book: What is the most important in life when you have the choice to reverse age? What do you choose to do when you have the option to start over fresh? My main complaint would be that the reader is told everything rather than shown. I would have preferred the story to be more first-person and less third-person. Additionally, Sue seemed to be easily swayed, which left the ending of the book open to interpretation. I prefer to know exactly how things end. Personal preference aside, this was a fun easy read.
