Time is a cruel thief…unless you can steal it
As a neurologist, Nick Reilly believes
everything can be explained by science.
But he can’t explain her—Quinn Stewart,
an irresistible patient who knows things about him she shouldn’t. And insists
that at some point, she was his wife. 
Something else he can’t explain: he remembers
her too.
Quinn wakes each morning remembering new
details of the life they shared. She’s desperate for the dreams to stop. With
each one, she finds herself craving what she had with Nick more than the
life—and the fiancé—she already has.
Nick and Quinn share an attraction neither can
deny, but one that might destroy everything.
Just like it did before.

We walk into the house and I watch her face,
hoping, praying, for a reaction. Some memory that will provide an answer
we need.
Her mouth curves downward. “It’s just like
walking into the home of your favorite childhood friend as an adult. Familiar,
but meaningless. Why the hell did I ever think seeing it might heal a brain
tumor? I was expecting miracles.”
I return and find my hands wrapping around her
arms, forcing her to meet my eye. “Who says it would have to be a miracle?” I
ask. “We can’t explain anything that’s happening. But there was a time
when people couldn’t explain the change in seasons, or sunlight, or gravity. It
doesn’t mean there wasn’t an explanation. It just meant it hadn’t been
discovered. Why should this be any different?”
She looks away, pressing her lips together.
“But the tumor—you don’t actually believe we can stop it.”
I tip her chin up, feeling a little desperate.
She can’t start losing hope now. I need her to keep fighting until we find a
solution. “Do I think it’s unlikely this can fix the tumor? Yeah. But your tumor
is also unlike anything I’ve ever seen. And how could I say it was impossible
anyway? Every day, you and I are witnessing the impossible. We’re having the
same dreams, for God’s sake. You know things you couldn’t possibly know, and
from the moment I met you, it felt like you were…”
“It felt like I was what?”
“Mine,” I reply.
The awkwardness of that word washes over us
both. I’ve never called anyone mine in my life, and she is with someone
else. But I also know what I said was right. She is meant to be mine, and
somehow today I need to convince her of that.

I loved this book so much, even a week after finishing it I'm still talking about it and trying to figure it out. To be honest, this is probably one of the hardest reviews I've written, I wanted so badly to not like this book. I won't go into detail and ruin it, but it is totally not my cup of tea. I love Elizabeth's writing and didn't even read the blurb before deciding I wanted to read it. Now, I still don't think this kind of story is my thing but if I'm still this worked up about a book I was sure I want going to lie, it had to be amazing. Nick completely stole my heart and I honestly think that is what kept me going while I continuously told my husband I was going to put the book down....I didn't...someone would have had to pry it out of my hands to make me stop. There is twist after twist and you just can't stop even if you think you want to. This has the makings of an unforgettable love story and I honestly cannot wait another second to find out how this ends.
Parallel is one of those stories that anyone who loves a good love story needs to read. You will not be sorry, even if you think it's not your type of book, you will be glad you read it.
