The accidental death of his beloved wife sent Alex Morgan into a numbing world of suppressed grief and rage, eased only by a profound bond with his son. Suddenly his life is shattered again when a chance discovery propels him into a world gone horribly, terrifyingly wrong.

Piecing together clues in this new nightmare, Alex suspects a colleague of taking a few, meddling steps back in time, changing the course of history - destroying Alex's family and his world. Desperately clinging to his sanity, he searches for any evidence his young son still exists.

Jessica O'Neil is fighting a nightmare of her own, captured and facing execution for freedom-fighting heroics in her grim, oppressive world. When Alex rescues the feisty young rebel, she resists her dangerous attraction to him - a man who's clearly crazy, literally in a world of his own.

Bound together first by chance and desperation, then by growing purpose, respect, and emotion, Alex and Jessie must depend on each other to survive. More than that, they must find a way to prevent a terrible crime from taking place - a crime that plunged both their worlds into nightmare - over a hundred years before. To have a future, they will have to find their way to the past.

My Review -

First off I have to say is WOW! This story took me completely by surprise and had me glued to the pages right to the end. This book is primarily a sci-fi book dealing with time-travel and a beautiful romance that develops between the main character locked in a world that has gone completely to hell and the woman who tries to help him escape it in more ways then one.

Alex Morgan is a character you cannot help yourself to develop a close connection to. Tall, good-looking, smart and at the same time a man who feels truly blessed to have the love of his wife until tragedy turns his world upside and leaves him alone to raise his son. Alex truly feels that life was playing a cruel trick on him allowing him to feel such happiness when perhaps he was fated not to experience such joy. However, his son is his pride and joy and his love for his son is the only thing that makes him feel alive and makes him continue on.

It seems life doesn't end in playing its cruel tricks on him as he finds himself accidentally sent to a parallel time line where America is ruled as a totalitarian dictatorship and the killing of innocent civilians who don't have any civil rights is the norm. Alex's chance encounter with Jessie not only results in an ally who slowly starts to believe his far-fetched ideas but a companion who reawakens what he had been buried long ago.

Jessie is the perfect heroine for Alex: courageous, determined, kind, soft-hearted and despite all of that has a streak of innocence that awakens Alex's protective qualities.

As the story progresses I really enjoyed Alex's development in handling the difficult situations that him and Jessica faced. As he tries to right what has gone wrong he becomes more alpha and I really enjoyed how he was quick-witted in his actions in dealing with the various situations.

This was an emotional book dealing with tragedies, heartaches and desperation which were triumphed through sheer determination, hope, trust and the power of love to drive individuals to do the seemingly impossible.

Thought the scenes with Alex and Jessica were very tame compared to what I am accustom to reading (hints of what was to transpire and indications of what they were doing but not in detail) however, the tender moments between the two were truly touching and made my heart swoon.

Although there were some sentence break-ups which I think were the result of how my Kindle convert the file from pdf format and a few minor grammatical errors, I could easily look it over because the storyline and concept were so strong. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys emotional books with tender moments and it would definitely satisfy urban fantasy fans.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
