It is 11-years since the Ice Years have begun & the earth is primarily covered in ice because of a meteor impact. Most of the people left on earth either live at the equator or underground up north. Karma has fled her life as an assassin & lives where she believe no one will find her. A fellow assassin Fletcher finds her & blackmails her into doing one last job. She is to go to a water base & kill someone there named Mac. When she arrives at the base, she doesn't know what Mac looks like so she ...more

OK, so where to start...first, if you had asked me a year ago what my favorite genre was when I read a book, this one, dystopian/sci fi, would have been at the bottom of my list. But, since my retirement from the full time work force, I read, a lot, therefore I've opened my mind to new and different experiences, especially in my books and these authors who are doing these mash ups that include the romance are winning my heart.

1:05 a.m. is intriguing and heart-wrenching and sweeps us up into the

Full of action and some seriously steamy scenes, 1:05 A.M. is a nice twist on the post-apocalyptic and dystopian types of books. Instead of earthquakes or fire burning up the Earth, it's covered in ice. This is a new ice age for the planet and let's just say things have changed. Most people are now living underground and clean water is an issue. Mac/Rea is our hero who seems kind of like a grouchy guy who hasn't gotten enough you know what. Well...that's actually quite correct too. When his ex s ...more

I rarely give 4 stars, especially for a first book, but this one deserves it. 1:05 a.m. is the first book by C.M. Moore so I wasn't sure what to expect. What I found was an amazingly complex dystopian thriller storyline, especially for a debut novel. This is a standalone but there is a soft cliffhanger for possible future books. Warning: There is a lot of violence and death. Hot and Steamy sex so definitely 18+.

The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat all of t

1:05 a. m. is the debut novel and the start of a new series (An Ice Era Chronicle #1) by C. M. Moore. I think this author did a very good job of writing his first book. The story is set in a “post-apocalyptic world” and is set in an “ice age”. This is Karmen-Marie (Karma) and Rea MacBain’s story. I will let you read the synopsis that the author has provided for you since I feel that the author almost always does a better job than what I can do.

So when I was asked if I would review 1:05 a. m. my

Since it´s really nearly 1 am when I write this review, I am only able to sum up my main impressions from the book.
Considering this is the first book of this author, it is a very solid post-apocalyptic dystopian thriller with fair contribution of romance, suspense and drama. It is very expressive, with dark scenes full of violence, and considering the sexual content it is definitely recommended for adult readers. The story is full of surprises, twists and turns, and the elements of mystery ensu

C.M. Moore has written a very well imagined debut novel. 1:05 a.m. is a post-apocalyptic novel, with everything that that implies. Karma is an assassin who is taking one last job. Rea ensures that the water purification stations stay secure. As it turns out, Karma and Rea have past with one another. The only question is can their lives work together, or is freedom more important?

There is a lot of admire in this debut novel. Mr. Moore has created a world that is quite believable and inhabited it

They are brought together again to survive in a world without but with make do. Science and invention play a part in the desolate world. C.M. your writing flows from character to charact ...more

1:05 a.m. is a second chance romance which takes place in a dystopian future. This is Book 1 of the Ice Era Chronicle Series by C.M. Moore. Filled with plenty of drama, action, suspense, romance and sex, it is a very nice start to a brand new series that has many twists and turns as the reunited couple question not only the actions and motives of each other but of every other person within their environment, as well. Well-defined world and characters, original and intriguing storyline, and plent ...more

I took a chance on this book because it is not in a group I read ! He is a new Author and I found I really liked it . This is a story of a world that has gone back to an ice age one and people have to learn all over how to survive. It is also the story between Rea McBain and Karmen-Marie and what they have to do so that others might live. What happens when Karmen tries to kill Rea? Will they survive in this cold bleak new world? I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review ...more

I enjoyed looking into the future! My thoughts about the sex parts...could have been less descriptive for me. My opinion. I understand the need to bring the character's history into the story. That is what I like. Back and forth - memories brought forth to understand the "whys". ...more

A wonderful story from a bleak future. Character interaction can be a little overbearing, but the action writing was perfect.

I would recommend this book from people who like dystopian or action romance books.
