✪ Review ✪ A Perfect Moment ✪ Becca Lee


Copy received from author for an honest review
I was not sure what to expect when I started reading A Perfect Moment, but from the minute I started, I was intrigued and hooked.

We all have that one friend sometime in our lives where our feelings cross from friendship to love, more often than not unrequited.  And this is a story where friends take that step and try for something more.

Ella was screwed over by her fianc` on what was supposed to be her perfect moment, her wedding day.  5 years down the track and she is still gunshy when it comes to love and relationships.

Preston is her best friend Jos baby brother.  Smokin hot surfer and fireman.

I just love love love Preston!  Having been harbouring his feelings for so long, he sees his chance to take things to the next step and goes for it, balls to the wall, take no prisoners.  Loved that he would not take no for an answer.  Sweet, sexy, funny.  There were some great LOL moments, particularly when it came to the MCs inner monologues.

Oh, and there might be some of this along the way too.....
 “I tried not to give away a facial tell when I realised that in my epiphany of Win El Over, I had grown a f*&king vagina.  Immediately Chesney Hawkes The One and Only played out in my head.  Definitely a vagina moment” - Preston

The sad things is, I am old enough to remember this song when it was first released lol.

I could understand Els reluctance to get involved with Preston, but I wanted to shake some sense into her, tell her to pull her head out of her butt and get on with life!
There are some fantastic secondary characters, especially Jo and Jackson.  Jo is the best friend every girl wantshell, every girl needs!  Bold and brassy, says whats on her mind, takes not crap from anybody.
There is also a bit of mystery/suspense thrown into the story, and though it is not hard to figure out who the perpetrator is, the why and what for was harder to get.
This is Ms Lees debut novel, and she certainly did not disappoint me.  I look forward to reading more of her work in the future!
