When Collin’s relationship with Tanner becomes an issue in his brother’s custody battle and Tanner struggles with his feelings for a heartbroken Wendy, Collin wonders if everyone he cares about would be better off without him in the picture.

What can I say other then I am so disappointed right now… I loved Collin and Tanner together but after this book and what happens I honestly feel like Collin deserves so much better then Tanner.
I think my biggest pet peeve in a book is “beware this is a spoiler” cheating. Especially when it is just shrugged off like no big deal. Unfortunately that happened in this book.
Let me say after the first book I never liked Wendy and  after what she does with.. I can’t say without a spoiler but its bad and there is no way I can see someone who is truly in love just shrugging it off and honestly just made me dislike her so much more now.
So while I did like what the author did with the couple in the first book and Collins character I have to say sadly this book was just not for me…


FourandHalfStarsThis book was another excellent book in the Moments in Time series. The author made the MC’s so believable and it was clear that these were well thought out characters. The writing was excellent and I even loved the secondary characters. There was angst and most especially love between Collin and Tanner. It was hard to read when they were going through their bad times but so uplifting when they celebrated their good times. Excellent job Karen.

“I just signed two new contracts with Dreamspinner Press. These new titles will be continuations of the Moments In Time series, but will star secondary characters from the series rather than Collin and Tanner. MOMENT OF SILENCE will feature Quinn (Collin’s oldest brother) and Jason (Collin’s Fire Island co-worker who developed a crush on him) and MOMENT OF FATE will be Bryan’s story (Bryan was the musician housemate from Moment Of Truth). I’m very excited about both projects. I also have a m/f New Adult book that will be released from Bloomsbury in late 2015. Lots of books on the horizon!
