Sometimes in life....

Things were supposed to get better when Ryan met Lili. I was supposed to move on, get a life... but I'm stuck and lost. Things with my father are not good. There are demons in our closet, big ones. Ones I want to kill him for, I'm seeing a shrink, I'm trying to get better... but my life feels out of control, like I'm a raft adrift on the

Right Now by Marie Hall

Right Now, the second book in the Moments Series features Alex Donovan and Zoe (Maski) Stone.

Alex played a pivotal role in the first book, In The Moment, being the cousin of Ryan. Together they grew up with a dark and horrible event that changed both of their lives. In the first book, Alex's focus was always to look out for Ryan, making sure he lived everyday without harming himself and trying to deal with the crap that happened to him when he was a young child. When Ryan meet and fell in love w

Whoa! Marie Hall does it again! I loved the first book, A Moment, in this series and book 2 delivers just as satisfying of a story! See my review for A Moment on the blog! (and BONUS, it’s free on amazon right now! I’m not sure for how long, but you should go get it so when Right Now comes out you’ll be ready!!)

We met Alex in book one and I liked him from the start. He was a good friend and cousin, so I was pumped about him getting his own story. Zo

I loved this book as much as the first in the Moments series. I was hooked from the first page and stayed up way too late to finish. This is about Alex, cousin to Ryan from the first book. As with the previous book Right Now deals with the same dark and difficult issues. I’m starting to get spoiled by the great writing and captivating stories from this author.

Alex was introduced in the first book, but we get to know who he really is this time around. Alex has spent his life making sure Ryan was

Right Now by Marie Hall is the second book in the Moments series. Though this book can be read as a standalone I HIGHLY recommend reading the first book in the series, A Moment (which is currently free on Amazon!).

Right now is the story of Alex and Zoe and A Moment is the story of Ryan and Liliana, which provides a significant amount of back story for the issues Alex deals with in Right Now.

I had a lot to say about A Moment when I read it in the Spring. There were some very tender and terrifying aspects to it. Ryan Cosgrove was one of the things I enjoyed, quite a lot actually. There were also a couple of things I had a difficult time buying into.

I could not be happier to say that the largest issue I had with A Moment, is a complete non issue in Right Now. I think that when you are dealing with extremely sensitive subject matter, which this series does, you have to handle it with a

This is the second book in this series, and features Alex " the golden Adonis". On the surface Alex appears to be a young man who is a handsome easygoing womaniser. But all that is a facade, for underneath he is a mass of emotions. He and Ryan ( who featured in the first book). Share a dark past. But Alex who had always been Ryan's support and rock. Now feels lost and alone, since Ryan had met Lilli. He's now seeing a shrink to try and work through everything he's feeling.

This is the second book from Marie Hall that follows the story of Ryan and Alex. Book 1 deals with Ryan and this book "Right Now" tells us Alex's story. Now that Ryan has found Lili, things are supposed to get better, so why does Alex still feel so lost? Alex has lost all of his direction, before his life was to keep Ryan on track and keep Ryan safe from himself and now that Ryan doesn't need Alex, what direction does Alex need

Please read the first installment "A Moment" as "Right Now" is the second book in the series. Right now receive 4.5 - 5 Lotus Flowers from me!

"A Moment" shows that Ryan has fought his demons and that he is moving on with his life. Unfortunately the same can't be said for Alex. Alex is lost and through Ryan being nearly healed he has lost his purpose in life which leads him to becoming erratic and being so near to the ledge that it all could go horribly wrong.

I was greatly disappointed with this book. This book was supposed to be about Alex. His unresolved issues with what his father did to his cousin Ryan, & his estranged relationship with the whole family. Those of you who have read book 1 "A Moment" know the back story pretty well concerning Alex, Ryan & Lili & how Alex was the rock for Ryan while he was dealing with his dark demons, until Ryan falls in love with Lili. Now we see Ryan happy. We see him healing & moving on. So

I received this book from Marie Hall and "Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock" for an honest review.

This book is a follow up to a Moment in the moments series. It concludes the first book,a Moment, Ryan and Lili' s story and gives Alex and Zoe's story. This was a perfect follow up story.

Ryan finally has his life together which leaves Alex lost and confused. After reading his fortune in a fortune cookie he decides to go to a tattoo parlor and get some ink on a whim. He doesn't get his ink, b

Alex is a little lost since Ryan found Lili. Granted Alex is happy for Ryan but also a little jealous. Lili is an amazing girl and Alex needs that in his life. Alex does not know it yet but a confusing fortune cookie is about to change his world.

Zoe has had a crush on Alex since high school. She doubts that Alex would even remember her. Zoe was a Sophomore when Alex was a senior but Alex stared in many of Zoe's dreams, even now he is the #1 leading man in Zoe's fantasies. So Zoe is shocked when

Sometimes the book doesn't have to be an over the top love story with the best HEA in order for you to love it because it touched you so deeply.
Right Now isn't the best new adult romance ever written but it is an amazing continuation of another amazing story. So far, the moment series has touched in topics that aren't normally explored. It's a story of abuse, male abuse, and the ramifications of that abuse to the victim an love ones way beyond that act. While Alex and Zoe's love story was great

I really liked this book, it is a heart-rendering story.

Sometimes in life...all we have...Is Right Now

Zoe Stone aka Misaki is a really nice girl with a little insecurity about herself. Her parents want the best for her and it's just happens that none of her choice in her life consider as "the best" according to them. Her job at the tattoo parlor, her love choices...nothing!

And she knows and has a hots for Alexander Donovan, aka The Golden A
I was lucky to get an ARC from the author and couldn't be happier about it.
It is not easy for me to write a review of “Right Now” because I feel so emotionally invested in this book and the series. I already loved and adored and cried over Ryan’s story in “A Moment“. “Right Now” definitely lived up to its predecessor. I feel strangely protective of both books and both characters. “Right Now” is the second book in the series. While “A Moment” concentrated on Ryan’s tragic story of sexual abuse,
Copy received for review via Netgalley.

Right Now takes place just shortly after A Moment ends. Ryan and Lili are still around and we get see more of their happily ever after but this story, is the story of Alex.

Alex, can get any girl he wants. And he's had too many to count. But it's getting old, boring and well it's not really working for him anymore. His longest relationship lasting a week. Using sex as away to cope, with his issues. He doesn't want to live like this.

“Sometimes all we have is right now. I don't know anything about anything Zoe but I want to be with you, I want to hang out and I was to see where this can go.”

I didn’t think there could be a young man who would bore into my heart the way Ryan from A Moment did. But Alex was just as beautiful, tortured and hopeless as the cousin he used to care for. We find Alex still living with Ryan, however, Lili and Javier have now moved in as well, and Alex is feeling the third the wheel, and not the wi

This is book two and follows Alex the Golden Adonis’s journey. Also it should be read after book one but does NOT need to be, as you receive back story during Alex’s book.

I really enjoyed this one. Not because it’s full of passionate moments that allow your brain to shut off and work solely on emotion, or even because the writing is so deep that you find yourself in a trance trying to figure out the plot. But because it is 100% human. The crimes m

Just as his cousin Ryan seems to be getting control of his life, everything seems to be falling apart for Alex. For so long his entire being was focused on keeping Ryan alive but now he feels like a third-wheel with Ryan's marriage on the horizon. He has no purpose now and is terrified he'll become a loser like his vile father if he can't get his feelings of hatred under control. But with his mother and father both begging to talk to him he gets closer to getting lost in the darkness of grief, h ...more

Better then the first book?

Okay maybe not better but parallel. This one may not have been as deep or as tragic as Ryan's story but Alex still suffered. He witnessed the incident but kept quiet and that guilt ate at him. He as only 6 and what 6year old would know what to do in the instance? Probably none.

I liked Alex in A Moment but in his book I think Zoe/Misaka actually stole the show. I loved her. Everything about her was great. Alex always had potential to be a great character but I think Zoe

an enjoyable read and Marie Hall does emotional anguish extremely well. both Zoe and Alex are well defined characters, and their relationship of the opposites seems to work. Alex was such the all important "supporting character" in the first one assuring the primary characters survival, i was looking forward to seeing more of him. I was a bit bothered by the inconsistency of Alex being such a solid, always-there-for-Ryan in the first book and unable to be there for Zoe in the second book. also, ...more

Wow, wow, wow I knew what I was getting into when I read Ryan's story. I knew that Alex was going to be facing similar demons. and Marie Hall knows how to transport a reader into a dark world. When I read the scenes of Alex in the doctors office I felt like I was there on the couch with him seeing his struggle.

The scenes with his psychologist were bad pass. I love that doc like I would want to see her. but there was one thing I didn't like a

Philosophers, writers, actors, poets and many others throughout history have said that if something is meant to be, it’ll be effortless. Easy. Everything will come together as it should. All you have to do is show up. But life proves them wrong every day. Life proves that you have to work for what you really want. And that includes people.

I loved the first book , even with the heartbreaking subject behind it. I have to say I loved this one even more. They are just so endearing together. Nothing like a bad boy whose broken falling for that one girl. And can I say rockabilly chicks are awesome! Can be a stand alone but I think you'd get a bigger impact by reading the series in order. Gave me the impression there will be a third. can't wait.

Really like this series. I enjoyed Alex so much in the first book and was really looking forward to his story. The book did a great job of showing the fallout of abuse, how those close to the victim are also impacted. I really liked Zoe, she was strong, yet vulnerable. I liked how it wasn't tied up in a pretty bow @ the end, but showed hope for the future. Looking forward to Tor!

I liked his one better than the first book in the series. There is only one thing that bothered me...I loved Alex in book one, but in this book- where he was the lead character, he should have flourished...he should have been made even better than he was in book one. Unfortunately, he was kind of a pansy. He was so bland...and yeah- it worked well with Zoe because she was able to open him up to new things but, Geesh...the guy was so not an alpha. The dynamic worked for the two of them, but he is ...more

While it was hard to watch his cousin settle his demons, watching Alex deal with his was heart-wrenching. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and happy they both got their HEA's.
