One single moment changes everything
In one breath, you can have it all
A split-second later, it can all disappear
That was me
I had it all
Then in a cruel twist of fate, it was taken from me
A beautiful life gone in a flash
But he was there
He was there to pick me up when I fell
To protect me
My savior. My rock.
He was just a stranger
Just a selfless stranger with a face I’ll never forget
And like everything else, he just disappeared
As if he never existed
I have to find him
I need to find him
He has to know that he saved me
He has to know that in that one fleeting moment, he was all I could see
A while back I was notified about an upcoming, secret Bella Jewel book. I have read several of her books and have enjoyed them, but what really intrigued me was there was no background for this book. Just a secret release and I had to know what it was!
A while back I was notified about an upcoming, secret Bella Jewel book. I have read several of her books and have enjoyed them, but what really intrigued me was there was no background for this book. Just a secret release and I had to know what it was! Well…I was not disappointed. She is such a versatile author. Every book I have read of hers has been unique in its own way.
But for this secret release, I really do not know what to say or where to start. So much of what I want to share would be considered a spoiler and you have to just go into this book with no expectations. It is totally worth it. Every second of it. But what I can say is I found Fleeting Moments to be an emotional, full of angst, and loss read, but also about moving on and forward. Once I started, I could not put this book down
In the prologue, we get thoughts on how there are moments in a person’s life that can break us, change us, define us, impact us and ultimately shape us. In a second, minute, hour, your life can be changed forever.
The moment in time that changes the course of Lucy’s life (and those around her) is a tragic event. A life-changing event. One she survives, with the help of a stranger, but one who disappears just as quickly. Was it even real?
From the start, the twists and turns start coming and you have no idea where this story is going. I was surprised at every turn.
I loved Lucy. She was such a strong and determined heroine. Even as others questioned and doubted her, readers rooted for her. She knew what happened and no one would believe her. Was she crazy? Was it too much for one person? For every answer, there are more questions.
And Heath just runs away with your heart and never lets it go. Though what he is involved in is dangerous, he is also very loyal and honest to a fault, but also ALL alpha and sexy. What else could you ask for in a hero?
The secondary characters were just as amazing, the good and the bad. These characters had so much depth to them.
I truly enjoyed reading this book. Devoured every page. The ride was exhilarating. This is a must read. Emotional and heartbreaking, as well a hopeful and thoughtful.
I give Fleeting Moments by Bella Jewel 4.5 stars
