I love the first line of A Perfect Moment?
“When you reached out for that perfect
moment, it was only natural to want it to last forever.”
This is the
lovely first line to my début contemporary romance novel, A Perfect Moment. I
was listening to a song on the radio and in the lyrics, it sang about the
desire for a perfect moment, and questioned whether or not it was achievable or
not. An idea formed in the guise of this line. I then realized that after
twelve years of trying to find time to start writing a story, I’d finally kick
my own booty and make the perfect moment happen.
I love my
opening line. It’s really significant to Ella, my female protagonist. It
suggests angst and fear, alongside an inkling of hope for the future. The
concept of ‘perfect’ is revisited throughout the novel. It’s something that
Ella truly desires, yet equally fears. She soon realises, that life and love,
my not be all that crappy, and that sometimes, taking a risk is worth it. All
with the help of the dreamy Preston of course.
Perfect Moment has several raunchy scenes, a whole heap of foul-mouthed
frustrations, and pee-your-pants humour. Be sure to look out for the release
“When life threatens perfect, it’s time to step up and kick life in the balls.”
Ella’s perfect moment was taken from her in the worst possible way. Humiliated, heartbroken and absolutely determined not to allow her heart be destroyed for a second time, she builds an ice wall around her heart.
Preston has known that he was in love with his big sister’s best friend since the age of fifteen. Over ten years on, and an opportunity to be her knight in shining armour is too good to miss. Putting his heart on the line, he’s on a mission to show Ella that the perfect moment is possible.
Ella’s instinct is to run when she realises her feelings for her bestie’s little brother may just run a little bit deeper than just friends. But if she can’t run, she’ll try every trick in the book to shake off his affection and realign his feelings.
She’s already had her perfect moment, and there is no chance she’ll let her heart thaw for Preston. No matter how good he looks in the fire-fighter’s Christmas calendar.
Expected Release Date: April 2014
About the Author
Spending the last few years near the Queensland coast, Becca is rarely out of the sea or off the beach. Dragging her long board with her and her overworked Kindle Fire, Becca enjoys her three addictions: reading, surfing and ogling surfers, one of whom is her husband of ten years.
She can still be found regularly on the beach with her family. Becca tends to leave the surfing to her boys; she’s far too busy immersed in her own writing or, of course, with her head still buried in a new read.
