This One Moment (Pushing Limits #1) by Stina Lindenblatt
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.
4.5 out of 5 stars
This was awesome, I totally enjoyed it! A friends to lovers reconnecting story with some mystery and suspense thrown in. It made for an awesome combination and I couldn't put it down!
It started off excellent, really pulling me in. I liked both Nolan and Hailey and loved learning their histories. It was filled with emotion, intensity, a lot of sexual tension and the perfect amount of heat. I thought there was great character development throughout and loved all the details. I loved their growing feelings, it was passionate and intense but found their lack of communication frustrating though they did do a good job of showing their feelings even if it wasn’t verbalized. Nolan and Hailey had so much chemistry and that built up to some super hot, steamy times.
The writing was pretty fantastic! I LOVE how the chapters are set up with the different POV's and flashing back to what happened five years ago with them. I thought it was all balanced really well. It really had me hooked and I was on the edge of my seat for! There is a nice mystery element happening and it created some really good drama. Love how it played out and how all the dots were connected. I enjoyed the music aspect and the tension that was created from all of Nolan's responsibilities as well.
There was this really nice progression throughout and I enjoyed it all. Terrific ending. Loved the conclusion. It was so sweet and wrapped up perfectly. Love Nolan and Hailey together!
