REVIEW: Like Clockwork by Elle Strauss

Like Clockwork (Clockwise, #3)
Adeline Savoy had hoped that the move west from Cambridge to Hollywood with her single dad would mean they’d finally bond like a real family, but all she got was a father too busy with his new female friends and his passion for acting to really see her.

Instead she finds herself getting attached to Faye, the divorcee hair dresser she befriends when she travels back in time to 1955. Plus Faye has a hottie, James Dean-esque, bad-boy brother who has Adeline’s heart all aflutter. But bad boys from the past can be dangerous.

Is is possible that Adeline really does belong in her own time and that maybe the right boy lives as close as next door?

NOTICE: This is technically the third book in a series, but as it follows a different character and storyline, this is more of a companion book and this review should be without spoilers for the previous books. 

Ever since her mother dies, Adeline has been able to time travel into the 1950s at random moments, and this doesn't change when her father decides to move to Hollywood. In the 50s version of Hollywood, she meets Faye and Faye's super hot brother. But getting attached to the past is not the best thing...

I have loved all of the books in this series so far, and even though this book is a companion to the series (and doesn't follow Casey), I still loved it!
One of my favorite things about this series is that they are all fun reads! (Even though there are some not-so-fun moments for the characters)
And, like Casey's stories, Adeline's story is just as entertaining! 

The only thing that bugged me about this book was some of Adeline's decisions 
 But while I didn't agree with Adeline's decision's, it didn't ruin the book for me.

This was a fun, quick read and I definitely recommend the series!
(PSSSSST! The first book is FREE!)
I'm also definitely looking into other books by this author!

I hereby give this book
4 Wheels!
Meaning: It was amazing!
