This One Moment by Stina Lindenblatt

Fame, fortune, and stadiums full of screaming fans are right around the corner for the rock band at the heart of Stina Lindenblatt’s steamy, intense Pushing Limits series. But it’s an epic love affair that steals the show in this opening act.

When Nolan Kincaid skipped town to chase the music career of his dreams, he knew he wouldn’t miss the reminders of his broken family—he wasn’t so sure he could forget the girl he left behind. Now his band is touring nonstop, the recording sessions go all night, and the groupies are crazed. But when he hears that Hailey Wilkins is in trouble, he drops everything.

Hailey thought she’d missed her chance with Nolan. Five years ago, the moment she realized she loved him was the moment he decided to leave. Now, when a brutal assault lands her in the ICU, Nolan flies straight to her bedside, acting like nothing’s changed. What’s a rock star like him doing, canceling shows and risking his record deal, just to nurse an old friend back to health? And why should Hailey believe he’ll stay this time?

With her attacker still at large, Nolan’s ready to rise to the occasion. He knows he let Hailey down once before, but he’s ready to give her everything, heart and soul—and he’ll fight for the chance to prove it.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This was an engaging and interesting read. I thought that there was a good basis in the plot, and the mirroring of the amnesia, the reasons behind the events five years ago and so on. It felt a bit uncertain at times, and themes maybe started, and then didn't feature again – but overall the effect worked, and the romance was stronger for the drama. Given that she was recovering from a coma and beating, and he was returning to a place of great trauma, I think that their characters were believable, and their behaviour made sense. I liked the reason for the book title, and that she was really his muse. The band times were good – and I assume that the other guys getting their chance at love will feature in future installments – which I have every intention of reading.

A good twist on the rock star romance, with a bit of mystery, and childhood love thrown in.

Born in Brighton, England, Stina Lindenblatt has lived in a number of countries, including England, the United States, Finland, and Canada. This would explain her mixed-up accent. While studying in university, she learned to play the electric bass and often dreamed of one day playing in a rock band. Alas, she ended up getting a master’s of science in exercise physiology instead and eventually went on to write stories about athletic heroes and rock stars.

In addition to writing fiction, she loves photography, especially the close-up variety, and currently lives in Calgary, Canada, with her husband and three kids.
