"This was supposed to be the best summer of Maggie’s life. Now it’s the one she’d do anything to forget.

Maggie Reynolds remembers hanging out at the gorge with her closest friends after a blowout party the night before. She remembers climbing the trail hand in hand with her perfect boyfriend, Joey. She remembers that last kiss, soft, lingering, and meant to reassure her. So why can’t she remember what happened in the moment before they were supposed to dive? Why was she left cowering at the top of the cliff, while Joey floated in the water below—dead?

As Maggie’s memories return in snatches, nothing seems to make sense. Why was Joey acting so strangely at the party? Where did he go after taking her home? And if Joey was keeping these secrets, what else was he hiding?

The latest novel from the author of The Tension of Opposites, One Moment is a mysterious, searing look at how an instant can change everything you believe about the world around you."
It has been a while since a book got my emotions all riled up. Literally this book has me fuming! It wasn't that this book isn't good, it's soooo good. The way the author created such an amazing plot blew me away.

Now, why does this book blow me away? I must say, the characters. Hands down the characters are so well written. I loved just diving into the shoes of the characters, seeing and feeling their emotions.  With every new chapter, each new secret is revealed unntil the finaly revealing and OMG, that part blew me away.

The plot is also really addicting. I like that the main character is out of the loop along with the reader. As the reader discovers each new secrets, it's like a bomb blowing up on the reader. The ending with the reveal, lifted me anger like no other. BAM! Seriously, read this book, if you like an emotionaly rollercoaster.

One Moment holds the reader on the threshold of excitment. With my heart racing, I raced through the book just to asbord every single piece of awesomeness. Addictingly beautiful, One Moment is amazing!

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!
