Book Review: A Perfect Moment by Becca Lee

 A Perfect Moment

by Becca Lee

When life threatens perfect, it’s time to step up and kick life in the balls.” 

Ella's perfect moment was taken from her is the worst possible way. Humiliated, heart broken and absolutely determined not to allow her heart be destroyed for a second time, she builds an ice wall around her heart.

Preston has known that he was in love his big sister's best friend since the age of fifteen. Over ten years on, and an opportunity to be her knight in shining armour is too good to miss. Putting his heart on the line, he's on a mission to show Ella that the perfect moment is possible.

Ella's instinct is to run when she realises her feelings for her bestie's little brother may just run a little bit deeper than just friends. But if she can't run, she'll try every trick in the book to shake off his affection and realign his feelings.

She already had her perfect moment, and there is no chance she'll let her heart thaw for Preston. No matter how good he looks in the firefighter's Christmas calendar.

*** Contains steamy-hot moments, romance, friendship and a bulk load of swearing - non explicit sex scenes. ***

Favorite Quotes:

“I couldn’t help the goofy grin from appearing on my face.  I nodded a little too enthusiastically.  I really needed to work on the art of cool.  At the moment, I was grinning and nodding like a dog who’d just been scratched.”

“Is your hair that shade of red naturally?  ‘Cause one time, I attempted to dye mine, and it went pink.  Like crazy-fluoro pink; shit, even dogs howled at me in the street when I walked by, but yours-“

“Hell… you could stink of dog shit and fart gremlins and he’s still be a lovesick pup around you.  It’s pretty sad really.”

My Review:

A Perfect Moment was my virgin experience with the talented Ms. Becca Lee - and I have since added the rest of this series to my kindle, as she became an instant addiction.  The storyline and writing were humorous, fun, sweet, entertaining, intriguing, occasionally steamy, and all engrossing.  It was a quick read, and I was ever so thankful for that, as I could not seem to put my beloved kindle down once I started.  I adored these feisty, clever and amusing characters and their witty banter, sweet and supportive relationships, mishaps, and humorous antics.  More please!

About the Author

Spending the last few years near the Queensland coast, Becca is rarely out of the sea or off the beach. Dragging her long board with her and her overworked Kindle Fire, Becca enjoys her three addictions: reading, surfing and ogling surfers, one of whom is her husband of ten years.

She can still be found regularly on the beach with her family. Becca tends to leave the surfing to her boys; she's far too busy immersed in her own writing or, of course, with her head still buried in a new read.
