Summary:


What worlds would you move to be with your soul mate?

Painter Tessa Barnum is struggling. Her husband left, she's broke, about to be evicted and has made some serious missteps in her career.

When scruffy Brian Tennyson explodes into her life, claiming to be from an alternate universe, Tessa thinks he's a crazy vagabond - albeit one with mysterious and undeniable appeal.

Then he informs her that in his world, they're married.

Tessa's universe is turned upside down as the truth of love and loss, victory and humiliation, and second chances come back to her. She has to choose love over logic to reach that state of anticipation where miracles unfold.

The secret to her own life was always in her heart.

Review:


Brian was married to Tessa he says but in another alternate universe …. And so our story begins. This is a multi-layered story of romance and I guess self discovery plus throw in some old Science Fiction slightly reminiscent of The Time Machine and you have the making of a great romance.

The romance IS the main thrust of this short novel, make no mistake, the Sci-Fi, the craziness, a poetry quoting bad guy and other things revolve around the connection between Brian and Tessa BUT things are never as they seem to be in these novels are they

This novel slowly leads us down a path where we get to discover the things that have led both of these people to this point in their life, you have moments where you have to decide who is really crazy (if anyone) and throw in a bit of self awakening and it all works together to make this an uplifting and enjoyable story with a bit of a twist at the end

Bottom Line: This is a great story, a bit of craziness at the beginning to drop you into the story and a bit of everything a good romance needs with an ending quite satisfying on many levels. 4+ Stars and to many people this will be a 5 Star novel because it will touch some more deeply than the light story on the surface.

Moments of Beauty by JB Heller ~ Cover Reveal and Giveaway

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
