(An interconnected standalone)
Publication Date: June 24, 2022
Genre/Tropes: Friends-to-Lovers/Second Chance/Contemporary Romance
Author: K.K. Allen
Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars
I adore how Allen weaves a story through the past and present, especially when it’s a story about a couple rekindling a past relationship. Moments in Time is blended together with precision and care that melted me to a complete gooey mess.
I love this kind of story where I have the burning questions of what went wrong in a couples relationship in the first place, because to go wrong something was essentially going right at one point in time. I love discovering each piece of the puzzle and how it all unfolds as the couple slowly reconnects. It may seem painful, but it’s really like eating the best dessert really slow.
For Jamison and Violet up until seven years ago, their entire lives were very connected. They were best friends who eventually became more, so their sizzle was off the charts right from the get go and their story was ripe with tension. As we get to know both of them we are privy to moments of friendship, family, hardship and so much more. Their past, present, and eventually what could be their future all connect in a beautiful story that is wonderfully written.
Interconnected to other Bexley stories there are Bexley siblings galore and this book and your reading enjoyment will be enhanced knowing who they are. However, if you are unfamiliar with any of the other books this is still a great second chance romance to read as a complete standalone.
Jamison Bexley was the one who got away.
If only I hadn’t pushed him.
Seven years ago, he was my everything.
My safe haven.
My best friend.
However, dating was never an option.
Not when his eyes gravitated toward every girl in town but me.
That is, until the curse of bad timing found us both… and struck.
All it took was one night.
One big mistake.
Altering everything we could ever be.
I’m still paying for my sins all these years later.
Life has been downright cruel.
I’m working countless hours trying to hold onto the pieces of my shattered dreams.
Determined that nothing will keep me from my end-goal.
Until Jamison struts back into our small town and gets a first-hand glimpse of my life.
Suddenly, he wants to be my knight in shining armor.
But I don’t need a savior.
Those moments in time are long gone.
And he’s about to realize why
