“When life threatens perfect, it’s time to step up and kick life in the balls.”
Ella's perfect moment was taken from her is the worst possible way. Humiliated, heart broken and absolutely determined not to allow her heart be destroyed for a second time, she builds an ice wall around her heart.
Preston has known that he was in love his big sister's best friend since the age of fifteen. Over ten years on, and an opportunity to be her knight in shining armour is too good to miss. Putting his heart on the line, he's on a mission to show Ella that the perfect moment is possible.
Ella's instinct is to run when she realises her feelings for her bestie's little brother may just run a little bit deeper than just friends. But if she can't run, she'll try every trick in the book to shake off his affection and realign his feelings.
She already had her perfect moment, and there is no chance she'll let her heart thaw for Preston. No matter how good he looks in the firefighter's Christmas calendar.
*** Contains steamy-hot moments, romance, friendship and a bulk load of swearing - non explicit sex scenes. ***
Title: A Perfect Moment
A Perfect Moment is a pure and simple romance. There is no crazy abuse in the characters past, there is no crazy drama and frankly, I found that refreshing. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good, angsty book as much as the next girl, but its nice to have a sweet, simple romance to balance it out. Ella and Preston could be you. The drama that is created in the story revolves around their relationship and building trust. Its all very normal. While I did kind of guess the plot twist, it didn’t make it any less enjoyable. And, it was realistic enough to be believable which, again, is kind of a nice change of pace!
That being said, here is what I didn’t quite love:
1. Over use of the word arse. The author is from another country, so I tried to ignore the slang term but for some reason, that word just really annoyed me! (maybe I am just a snotty American?! Maybe its just like one of those random words that get under your skin like the word ‘moist’? Who knows!)
2. The book was a little slow paced. Again, this is a simple romance book. So, if you are used to reading the crazy, angsty books this book will seem slow to you. I enjoyed it for the most part really but I think some people might be bothered by the pacing.
