GMR 5 STAR REVIEW!!!
Moment of Truth-Book 2 (Moment in Time Series) by Karen Stivali!!!
Collin thought he would be fixing cars all summer when he finds himself in Fire Island working at a seaside restaurant. This is the first time that Collin and Tanner are out in public after Collin has come out to everyone. Now new challenges face these men such as jealousy as it rears its ugly head, Now they must face these demons if they are to survive in the real world as boyfriends.
This is the second book in the Moment of Time series. They decide to move to Fire Island with a very popular gay community where Collin can feel safe with his new status of "out". They are now working at the restaurant Tanner previously has been employed at. Collin needs a huge break from reality and being estranged from his family this is the perfect time. Collin is slowly getting closer to Tanners friends, this world is new for him and he has to take baby steps. Collin is finding it hard not to be jealous as Tanner's ex-boyfriend is not making it very easy with his aggressive flirtation and then seeing Tanner in an embrace with Wendy. After seeing this he makes a rash decision that just might be too damaging for the relationship to survive.
I am loving this series very much and book 2 was even more thrilling if that was even possible. It was so sweet and beautiful to see the amazing connection that these boys share. I love how the author wrote about the feelings that Collin was having with coming out as this is a very difficult time for some gay men. The author told it so realistically and it was so spot on. The very real feelings and jealousy that face Collin was some of the best writing that I have had the pleasure to read. The author writes in such a way that you truly feel that you know or once knew these men.
I enjoyed the sub-characters even though at times it was difficult to read when you see the angst that Collin went through. This is some brilliant writing and the pages flow so well together. I can't wait for the next book in the series. I highly recommend this book...Moment in Truth and I also recommend you read Moment of Impact. You won't be disappointed in this beautiful series.
