Title: This One Moment
Series: Pushing Limits #1
Author: Stina Lindenblatt
Release Date: April 5, 2016
Fame, fortune, and stadiums full of screaming fans are right around the corner for the rock band at the heart of Stina Lindenblatt’s steamy, intense Pushing Limits series. But it’s an epic love affair that steals the show in this opening act.
When Nolan Kincaid skipped town to chase the music career of his dreams, he knew he wouldn’t miss the reminders of his broken family—he wasn’t so sure he could forget the girl he left behind. Now his band is touring nonstop, the recording sessions go all night, and the groupies are crazed. But when he hears that Hailey Wilkins is in trouble, he drops everything.
Hailey thought she’d missed her chance with Nolan. Five years ago, the moment she realized she loved him was the moment he decided to leave. Now, when a brutal assault lands her in the ICU, Nolan flies straight to her bedside, acting like nothing’s changed. What’s a rock star like him doing, canceling shows and risking his record deal, just to nurse an old friend back to health? And why should Hailey believe he’ll stay this time?
With her attacker still at large, Nolan’s ready to rise to the occasion. He knows he let Hailey down once before, but he’s ready to give her everything, heart and soul—and he’ll fight for the chance to prove it.
Two best friends who refused to cross that line due to the fear of losing each other... But, little did they realize, walking away would eventually lead them back to each other, and their feelings/demons would have to be faced.
After Nolan and Hailey parted ways, they both lived their own lives and for Nolan, it was doing what he's always wanted. For poor Hailey, however… Well, that led her to where she was today, broken, in a hospital bed.
Nolan's guilt for leaving her when she needed him the most eats at him, and even though he's kept up with her because of Brandon, a mutual friend, he still hates that he's not been there with her.
I'm going to be honest and say that, at times, I didn't know what to think because the more I read, the simpler it seemed to me that Nolan should have just had the balls to tell Hailey that he loved her. I honestly thought if they would have professed their love for each other, their lives might have gone differently. Much differently. The more I read, the more I wanted to smack some sense into Nolan. If only I would have…
Be prepared to get fully engrossed and lost in their story—and, like me, hope that it ends well for them. For that, you will have to one click it and travel with them on their journey.
