I received this book from the author and the Paranormal, Fantasy, Dystopia and Romance Reader, Writers and Reviewers Group in exchange for a honest review.

My Thoughts: I really liked this book. I would describe it as a science fiction romance with an alpha hero (reminded me of Lynda Chance's alpha heroes) who is so caring and protective of the heroine that he will do whatever he can to see that she and her family are safe. I will admit that some of the background of the hero and the explanation

This book was a page-turner for me...especially towards the end. I stayed up late reading.

It's science fiction. It deals with alternate universes...people traveling from one two another. It was a bit confusing for me. Went over my head a bit, but I could follow for the most part. Well...what I'll say is my confusion over the deep thought stuff didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story.

I'm not sure how I feel about the romantic relationship in the book.

I find it very hard to express in words my thoughts on this story as it was
different from what I usually read.
I loved the stories of the Elven realm that the author has written under her other
name Cristina Rayne, but this series dealt with concepts that I found hard to grasp.
The story moved at a good pace and had lots of plot intrigues. I probably wouldn't have
been as confused if I was more familiar with quantum physics and such matters.
Overall I was able to get wrapped up in the story and I lo

This story has been something else. It starts out easy then gets crazy real fast. Who would do something like that to there kid. I don't want to say to much and give away something. The story is so good. At first I didn't think that it would be good, then it turned into and awesome story. It is unbelievably awesome.

This was a very interesting book that takes place in multiple universes so not one that is on my normal reading list but I though why not. This is a very engaging read but I found it slightly lacking. I do feel there is definitely room for improvement and will be very interesting the reading the next installment

This was a fantastic book!! I am a sucker for urban fantasies! There is so much room to think completely outside the box! And The Supreme Moment is far outside of the box! The book is really well written with the potential of a lot more novels being developed from this world created! I loved it and would keep my eyes peeled for more!

A special young woman finds herself about to be destroyed by her father's gambling debts, as well as her sister.

A very mysterious man steps in and everything she thought she knew changed.

Is long enough to span time and space?

Can it save everything?

Or will only loss take its place?

This is the first time I have ever read anything from this author Cristina Rayne. I am so glad I did it has a lot of twist and turns all threw this story. As the story unfolds I start to love the strong characters and the story is wonderful to read. I can not wait to see what is coming next.

This book is another take on multiverse reading, and I give the authors credit for this book. I found parts of this book were a bit long winded. But the story itself was very imaginative. Give this book a try it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I did enjoy it.

I absolutely loved this book! Avery was so lucky to be rescued from her despicable father's depraved plots, by Lord Darien, whose chivalry, humanity and the fact that he loves her, overwhelms his dark side. Great reading!

A bit winded, but thoroughly imaginative read from this set of authors. It was an intriguing but difficult read, especially at the beginning. I felt for her because she was trying to do something to help her family and basically sacrificed herself to do so. A good book.

I like this book, details creative scenes that has action, intrigue and challenges with a twist as hidden secrets open up a well thought out storyline.

Well, this one is definitely a big surprise of fun! I am going to say it’s a mix of the sci-fi and fantasy genres, and it’s probably in the New Adult group. I loved it. AND it’s fresh, creative, and a wonderful new world to consider! So, you start with an 18 year old girl at the end of her high school career, with great friends, a very awesome little sister, a slightly too passive and emotional mother, and piece of crap of a father, and a supernatural being…. Let’s throw in some crazy intergalac ...more

I received a copy of this book through Goodreads First reads Giveaways in return for a honest review.

From the second that I picked up this book, I couldn't help but why the author decided on the title of "The Supreme Moment." It was a such a different sort of phrase, one that you wouldn't quite expect to be a title of a book. I won't say what it means for it will spoil a lot of fun to be had in this book. Still I will not deny that it is part of what sucked me into the story in the first place.

I would definitely recommend this book for sci-fi/magic fans wanting to read something different.
I received it in exchange for an honest review and give it a 3,5 - 4 stars.
It was not what I expected but I really did enjoy the read.

I tried to guess what Kairos was. Vampire? Demon? Other being? The truth of his origin was far more complex and elaborate than what I could have guessed. Where in God's name do some authors find their inspiration and ideas? I can sa

This book was very good with romance and had a different take with multiple universes.

When I first read the beginning, it was really exciting. We first meet Avery who is a very hardworking and selfless girl who provides for her family. I admired that about her character and was easily relatable. I also thought she was tough when she was trying to protect her family from Hayes. She was also smart about most of her choices and didn't make those irritating ones such as waiting for explanations late

This book was really interesting story-wise, good characters, original backdrop. Can't say I could really follow all of it multiverse-wise, but then I read the whole thing in one sitting and forgot to sleep.

Another thing that kept throwing me off was the viewpoints. It wasn't exactly first person, or second or thirth, it was all and it was constantly whiplashing between them and that was very annoying at times.

*bit of a spoiler to come!*

The other thing that really didn't click with me

Entertaining, but extremely racy for a YA, at least at first.

The Supreme Moment is about a young girl named Avery who is faced with an impossible choice. She chooses the lesser of two evils and allows herself to be claimed by a mysterious crime lord in exchange for the safety and protection of her mother and sister. Darrien Stathos is a frightening man, pale, with mismatched, disturbing eyes, and he's had both of them on Avery for quite some time.

At first the story seems paranormal romance (almo

I would like to say that if no one grabs this book and makes a movie out of it I will be sorely disappointed! I would love to see this on film. It was imaginative, exciting, fresh and new. It was so unusual that I was always sad when the time came that I had to put the book down for real life stuff. How refresh

I received this book free from Goodreads First Reads in exchange for an honest review.
This was another book that I entered to win on a whim. I wasn't to sure what it was about but i thought that the cover looked interesting. I didn't have any expectations going in but this book sucked me in and in a very short time. I finished the book in one sitting. I haven't read anything quite like it, ever. It's very hard to explain, it is basically aliens but with a mythological feel and undertone
Ken Doggett
The author of "The Supreme Moment" has a wonderful imagination and it shows in this book. There are some problems, but mostly it's in the writing and editing. The writing itself is fairly literate, but the constant mis-use of the word "like" instead of the more correct "as if" or "as though," and the occasional "worse" instead of "worst" can be distracting, although readers of Young Adult Fiction may not be bothered by it. Also, it's often a bit wordy. A few more run-throughs by the author to ed ...more

I enjoyed reading it so much that I finished the story within two days. I purchased the kindle edition after reading the preview and entering the goodreads contest. It was interesting to read of beings from other universes besides the usual vampires, werewolves, etc. The main problem I had was that the heroine, Avery Morgan, was at times very brave and other times a bit clingy and too self-sacrificing, reminding me of Bella from Twilight. Everything happened really quickly, especially how they g ...more

I was given this to write an honest review.
Reading the synopsis made me want to read the book, it sounded a bit different from my usual reads and I honestly didn't know what to expect.
I was really enjoying the book until "bang" it's about aliens from other dimensions. I suppose had I read the whole title I may have put two and two together or even read the synopsis a couple of times, I may have engaged my brain slightly to read between the lines. After that I'll be honest and say I struggled to
