Moments in Time: Book Two

Collin expected to spend another summer fixing cars and working at the college pizzeria. Instead, he’s living in a beach house on Fire Island, waiting tables at a hip seaside restaurant and, for the first time since he and Tanner got together, they can publicly be known as boyfriends. Being “out” takes some getting used to, but with the help of new and old friends, Collin is happier than he ever imagined. And more in love. But newfound freedom brings unexpected challenges, and when friends get flirty, old insecurities arise. Moments of doubt and jealousy threaten their happiness, and Collin and Tanner must confront the truth or risk losing it all


Moment of Truth is the second installment in Karen Stivali’s Moments in Time series. Book one, Moment of Impact was a Prism Recommended Read for January. The Moments in Time series follows the life and love of Tanner and Collin, two upper-classmen at a conservative Catholic university. In part one, they fell in love and came out to Collin’s family. In this installment, they spend the summer on Fire Island. They face normal relationship growing pains. Together, however, they come out stronger than ever. They deal with jealousies and insecurities. They deal with friends with ulterior motives and friends who want more than they are offered. They deal with normal, everyday issues that any couple could potentially face. There is no evil plot to face. There is no gun wielding baddy to scare them into submission. There is just Tanner and Collin trying to find their way together. The story is sweet and hot. It is heartwrenching and heartwarming. I am ready for part three, Moment of Clarity.
