Split Second by Kasie West

Summary: Addie has always been able to see the future when faced with a choice, but that doesn't make her present any easier. Her boyfriend used her. Her best friend betrayed her. So when Addie's dad invites her to spend her winter break with him in the Norm world, she jumps at the chance. There she meets the handsome and achingly familiar Trevor. He's a virtual stranger to her, so why does her heart do a funny flip every time she sees him? But after witnessing secrets that were supposed to stay hidden, Trevor quickly seems more suspicious of Addie than interested in her. She wants to change that.

Laila, her best friend, has a secret of her own: she can restore Addie's memories . . . once she learns how. But there are powerful people who don't want this to happen. Desperate, Laila tries to manipulate Connor, a brooding bad boy from school—but he seems to be the only boy in the Compound immune to her charms. And the only one who can help her.

In the suspenseful sequel to Pivot Point, Addie tries desperately to retrieve her lost memories and piece together a world she thought she knew before she loses the love she nearly forgot.

Review: I liked it! I mean, I read it in approximately two days, so clearly.

I like Trevor. He takes the whole Supernatural Abilities thing really well, like we all wish we could, and is basically the most chill guy ever. (Like Oz from Buffy. Anyone remember how super chill that guy was?) I was pretty surprised by how cool he was with Addie's admission about being in love with him in an alternate timeline, but I guess since he already had a thing for her, he was able to take it in stride.

Laila's storyline took me a little more time to get into. Connor's whole Teddy Bear on the Inside thing didn't really do it for me... I feel like a disproportionate amount of angry guys turn out to actually be sensitive sweet guys in books. N'est pas? (And is he in the first book? I don't remember his deal.)

Overall, it was a pleasant way to spend two days or so.
