Alicia is in the midst of facing a crisis while life is busy throwing other hurdles in Adam's and Ace's lives. After Alicia was kicked out by them, she feels abandoned at quite possibly the worst time of her life. Right when she needs them most, they appear, but there is still the fact they'd hurt her and disappeared on her, not to mention her past is still haunting her.

I loved the first four parts but this last part just didn't feel right for me. The only thing that saved it is the ending. Alicia's father’s part just felt odd to me, it was wordy and didn't flow well. I had a hard time understanding the turn around that Ace and Adam had when they had originally thrown her out for her pregnancy. Overall entertainment was three stars. Having an f/m/m relationship has enough drama without throwing in a sick in the head father, video drama, losing the job drama, and a pregnancy. If this had been a regular book, I'm skeptical that I would have rated it above a three.

This final episode of Ace, Adam and Alicia's story is a fitting climax to the serial. It picks up from the cliffhanger ending of pt4. And you might want to reread the last few pages of pt4 before you jump in here, just as a quick refresher.

A series of climactic incidents bring the trio to the brink; (Alicia's father storyline didn't quite work for me), but Ms. Orman doesn't disappoint and the incredible heat that she can generate on the page makes a welcome recurrence.

Although I am usually someone who would rather wait for a series to be written before adding it, I have enjoyed the bi-weekly instalments of this story a lot. I guess a bit like a TV drama, I've had time to think about each one before the next one was released.

This installment seemed a bit rushed to me. A lot of the action takes place "off the page" when it comes to the resolution of Adam and Ace's reaction to the Alicia's pregnancy. The appearance of Alicia's father seemed out of place and came at the time for the guys to save Alicia.

The ending is what saved this installment for me. I do love a happy ending.

I’m having a hard time determining if my disappointment with Part Five is because the journey is over or if it’s the installment itself. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy In the Moment: Part Five because I did. I liked that Ace stayed to true to his character and lashed at out Adam when he sent Alicia away after the discovery at the end of Part Four, which is where this installment picks up. I was surprised by the consequences of his rash decision and reckless behavior that Ms. Orman wrote into the story, but they were realistic and I applaud her willingness to do that to one of her main characters. I loved that Adam’s arrival was once again perfectly timed when Alicia’s past came skulking back into her life and that he had the chance to administer a little justice before the police arrived. That the guys accompanied her to the police station and were there to support her emotionally helped to show that maybe, just maybe, Ace was finally getting his act together and that they had a chance for the long-term ménage relationship they had been working toward. Of course, the sex scenes were as hot as ever – even with the position maneuvering that was required to accommodate physical conditions at different times in the story. But I suppose I had hoped for just a bit more closure to their story. Did I enjoy In the Moment: Part Five? Absolutely. Was it a complete story? Yes it was. Were all the questions answered? No, but no book can do that and the questions that were left hanging were left hanging because of when in time the story ended. Ultimately, I just wanted a bit more of their story. But in the end, In the Moment: Part Five is still a 5-star read for me because I will reread it and I look forward to being able to read all five installments back-to-back.

Mother by day. Writer by night. I spend a majority of my day with my children and reading while my nights are filled with the sound of the keyboard as I work on my next work.

I have written in F/F, F/F/M, F/F/F and then of course F/M genres.... So, beware, I do not always have the most 'traditional' scenes. And one day I will venture into M/M, just have to find the time.

I love to try new things and learn from every piece of work I write. I'll write just about anything once to learn from it. I've even ventured out of my normal erotica genre into Monster Erotica. Doubt you'll find me writing anything not erotic as you can barely get me to even read something out of that category, but then again, you never know what I might try next.

Never stop learning. Try everything at least once.
