Review:Moment of Truth (Moments in Time:Book Two) by Karen Stivali


Collin expected to spend another summer fixing cars and working at the college pizzeria. Instead, he's living in a beach house on Fire Island, waiting tables at a hip seaside restaurant and, for the first time since he and Tanner got together, they can publicly be known as boyfriends. Being "out" takes some getting used to, but with the help of new and old friends, Collin is happier than he ever imagined. And more in love. But newfound freedom brings unexpected challenges, and when friends get flirty, old insecurities arise. Moments of doubt and jealousy threaten their happiness, and Collin and Tanner must confront the truth or risk losing it all.

What I thought about Moment of Truth
Collin and Tanner spend the summer at the beach on Fire Island, their relationship growing. And with it comes some growing pains.   It's all Collin's story, how he grows up and learns to deals with some of the adult situations he's facing.  He doesn't always get it right and that made it interesting.

Karen Stivali got it right though.  I loved Collin's tale and the writing just pulled me into the story.  You know that feeling when you are reading, when everything fades away and you just fall into the story?  I had that feeling with this book.  I don't know if it will work that way for you, but it did for me.  

There's still a lot of heat between the boys, but in Moment of Truth they are no longer sequestered in the dorm room, so there are quite a few "firsts" for Collin along with a few challenges he has to work through.  And with him all the way is Tanner and I loved where they ended up.

At 113 pages, it's just the right size when you want a quick read with a whole lot of emotion, a heap of drama and a good dash of heat. Recommended.

Moment of Impact

Outside Collin Fitzpatrickís dorm room is a dangerous place. Beyond his door the students of his small, conservative college think heís straight, as does his Catholic family who'd disown him if they learned the truth.

Inside, he ís safe with his incredibly sexy roommate Tanner DíAmico. Their room makes a perfect place to hide away and fall in love. The moment they cross the line from roommates to lovers, Collin becomes caught between their heavenly passionate encounters and the hellish reality that someone might find out and destroy everything. 

Tanner ís not used to being so confined, and wants to show the world how much he loves Collin. But Collin ís not sure he ís ready for the impact stepping outside will make.
