Ugly. It's the only word to describe my upbringing.

It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.

And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.

Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.


My Rating:




Favorite Quotes:



I repeat the mantra I’ve been using since he left to remind myself of what I am.  You’re stronger than one boy.  You are a fucking dolphin in a sea full of catfish.  You’re a catch, damn it!


It’s not that I can’t imagine a future without him, it’s that I don’t want to.


I want to be with you, day in, day out.  And I will do whatever I need to in order for that to happen.  You’re it… you’re my one and only.  You always have been.  I’m not going anywhere without you, ever again.



My Review:



Written in my favorite dual POV, Moments of Beauty was a heart-squeezing and emotive tale that stole my breath.  I initially feared I had stumbled into YA, naughty YA, but as the characters were in high school, I began to worry.   Silly me!  I really should know better as I have read this delightfully talented author’s work before.  The storyline was relevant, well constructed, and entertaining, while the writing was poignant, engaging, and captivating.  I cherished and adored this endearing couple.
