In This Moment

A. D. McCammon

A. D. McCammon owes me a box of tissues! IN THIS MOMENT shredded my heart over and over again! What an emotional story this is! When I was finished reading I couldn't get Lizzy and Brenden out of my head and went through half a box of tissues thinking about them! I can honestly tell you this, I am going to read everything that A. D. McCammon has written and she will be an auto buy for me from now on. IN THIS MOMENT had my emotions all over the place and near the end,

What an emotional roller coaster this story was! But well worth the ride.
This story is about a woman named Elizabeth "Lizzy" Shea who is dealing with the loss of her husband after 2 years. She has 2 small children and every day is a challenge while still dealing with the pain of losing the man she loved to an accident. She meets Brenden Scott. Instantly there is a connection between these 2. Brenden Scott comes from a background of pain as well. Both of these people

This was such a fantastic story about overcoming loss and finding love again. A.D. McCammon's words are filled with emotion and flow through the pages. My heart went out to the heroine and her situation, and while I was cheering for her to find her happiness, I also felt her pain and hesitance. I loved the friendship that blossomed between Elizabeth and Brenden, and the building tension of more. McCammon's writing is deep and heartfelt in this novel, filled with symbolism and meaning.

4 Stars to In This Moment by A.D. McCammon.

This book had my emotions all over the place. It was emotional, intense, angsty, sexy, sweet, and even frustrating at times. I'll add this book was well written and flowed nicely.

What frustrated me was Lizzy's inability to make up her mind regarding Brenden. Lizzy has issues that stem from the loss of her husband. Because of that her fears of commitment are understandable for a number of reasons. I understood her actions and how she felt, but after a wh

5 Star review for In This Moment by A.D. McCammon!! Having read her book Crushed I was already in love with the characters I just didn't know how much I was missing and I am so glad I picked this book up as well. Elizabeth and Brenden's story was remarkable from the start. It really made me think that love at first sight could happen as easy as it did in this book. Don't worry if you pick this book up before Crushed for they both can be read as a standalone.I highly recommend this book!- By Chey ...more

I read both this book and Crushed (another book from this author) back to back, so first things first, between In This moment and Crushed, In This Moment is my most favorite. I love both of the books but I really loved Lizzy and Brenden, they're perfect together and there connection and friendship felt natural. They both had dark parts in their pasts that held them back, but their friendship brought out the best of themselves and the best of what they could be when they finally opened up about t ...more

Wow! What an emotional ride this book was. I loved every moment of it.

“She said, “What’s the difference between the love of your life and you soulmate?” I let out of a sigh of relief when the Mud Vein quote causes his face to lighten, his smile widening as he begins to see my point. “One is a choice, and one is not” he replies, finishing the quote in the same way I had w

I adored this book, unfortunately it was a book that I could put down. I loved Brenden's character and hated his childhood. Lizzy was very emotional given her past but wished she wasn't so back and forth, scared to move on with her life. I do wish the kids had more part in the story.
But for the author's first book, it was very well written and characters were great!! I can't wait to read her next book(s)!

I really loved this book! I went into it after reading the blurb, but didn't have super-high expectations since this is a new author. I absolutely love when a book exceeds my expectations! The book felt real- the characters, the situations, the emotions- and I genuinely cared about them! Brenden- oh my God, Brenden- was so much more! He had an awful upbringing, and he didn't think much of himself because of it. And Lizzy was a mess (and I say that in the most loving way), as you could imagine af ...more

What an amazing debut novel by a very talented author. Let me just say how beautiful the front cover of this book is and believe me the story measures up to the front and so much more. I found the story of Lizzy and Brendan to be emotional, sweet and touching. So much so that it had me crying before chapter 3 had even started. I just found the charters so loveable and so easy to connect with, it was like watching their lives play out in front of you. For me it was a very well written book with a ...more

You ever read something that touches all of your broken parts? This is that book. It was beautifully sown together with hope, love and yummy Brenden. I'm late to the game. I've had this book sitting on my kindle since its release and yet never got around to reading it.🤦🏼♀🤦🏼♀🤦🏼♀ Boy, big mistake. Huge!! I won't be making that mistake again.

What a great debut novel for this author. Such a touching, emotional and sweet read. The story flowed naturally and her characters were very relatable, a trait I tend to gravitate to. Hats off to you, A.D. McCammon for bringing this story to life. Looking forward to the next one.

I really enjoyed this story. Brenden and Lizzy were relatable characters and I loved how their relationship slowly blossomed. The banter between them was adorable and their serious moments pulled out the feels and squeezed my heart.

A. D. McCammon is a new-to-me author and I will definitely read more from her. This is her debut novel and I thought she did a great job!

p.s. LOVE the beautiful cover!

This book was filled with a lot of ups and downs on the emotions. It was a good read but I felt it moved slowly and I felt that the children needed a bigger part in the story than what they had.

Loved it!! <3 <3 Here we have a contemporary romance. Think of the movie "When Harry met Sally." In This Moment by A.D. McCammon has put a twist on the theme from When Harry met Sally, instead of funny moments there is heartache. “Our lives are made up of moments, and I used to think it was only the big moments that made an impact, but now I know even the smallest of moments can change your life forever.”-Elizabeth Shea

Beautiful 'In this moment' was such a pleasant read, especially being the authors debut novel.

At times I thought the story would go in a certain direction but it surprised me when it didn't.
I especially liked that about this book and the fact I wasn't sure of the outcome.

I really did love certain references throughout the story which resonated with me.

It really was an enjoyable read and there is definitely more wonderful writing to come from this author, so I'll be sure to be on the look out!

I liked this book too much! And specially when is well written.
New author for me are like fresh air, I enjoy them I try to breathe them. This author created a beautiful story, with so much pain and love at the same time.
Opportunities to heal, to forgive and forget.
Elizabeth and Brenden were a perfect couple, the balance between love and suffering but with healing.
There was too much too heal in her and so much love to give from him. Omg!! His background was like "seriously? I want to hug you!!!"

I absolutely loved this book and truly enjoyed the characters. You have one character that knows what its like to love and be loved, and another who has never felt loved and has also been against falling in love. One has scars you can see, the other has scars that runs so deep it affects the heart. Life has a way of throwing people in our paths that are meant to change our lives. Things change when their eyes connect; it's almost as if they are bonded together in some way, but they have a bumpy ...more

This is the first book of A.D.mcCammons that I have read and my first thought at the end of chapter one was how real this book felt.

it's hard to explain but having gone through a similar experience to the main character Lizzie I felt the story flowed fantastically and found myself recognising alot of what she went through.

I don't know if this story was written from experience of just researched very well but I applaud it for its realism.

In This Moment is a sweet story of loss and heartbreak and redeeming love and second chances. I related to the MC, Lizzy, in her reluctance to open up and her focus on everything but letting someone in to help heal her wounds. She has that "pile everything on my plate, I can handle it" attitude, and I respected and felt for her.

What I didn't expect was to relate to the hero, Brenden. His backstory added a depth and grittiness I was craving, and I loved that he selflessly and relentlessly pursued

This was my first A.D. McCammon book, I won a copy in a facebook giveaway and was intriguied by the blurb. I love the two person narration, you are able to get into the mind of both the male and female protagonist. And not only that but the author also uses flashbacks expertly to give the reader a well-rounded picture of how the characters have developed and what lead them to their present state.

Lizzy and Brendan, love them! I just cant enough how amazing their friendship is and they come togeth

Such a beautiful story. Heartbreaking to read at some points, fun to read at others. Lizzy drove me nuts with her always freaking out and the pushing and pulling, the back and forth emotions, but I completely understood her reasons. Brenden saved the story for me. He made it easier to cope with Lizzy, and once she opened up, I adored her. There were so many moments that I wanted to cry, and so many that made me giggle. I loved all the song and movie references, and definitely the Mudvein one. I ...more

In This Moment was a very touching book, and by "touching" I meant that I bawled my eyes out at the beginning of the book. This author has such an amazing way of getting you to really connect with the main character (Lizzy) and to really empathize with how she was feeling. It was kind of hard for me to read in the beginning, because I kept thinking how I would feel if I'd be in Lizzy's situation. I felt that all of the characters were well developed in the book and found it very easy to picture ...more

First time I have read anything from this author and was pleasantly surprised.

When you start a book with a tragedy you think phew no more tears now for the rest of the book Wrong !!!

I willed lizzy to get up and go on soooo many times I was hooked from chapter one and there was no getting out until I finished.

Excellent read beautifully written and have some tissue on hand.

Loved it !!!

“I believe sometimes we must go through the bad to get to the good. Our scars, the physical and emotional ones, can be a road map leading us to our destiny.” Those word is what make this book a phenomenal read. Lizzy and Brendon stole my heart from the first word till the last. Their story is raw and real.

Lizzy and Brenden connect in a way they haven't with anyone else. She's currently dealing with a horrible loss and he's been dealing with crap from when he was a child. They are both drawn to one another like magnets, but she's so afraid. This was an emotional read and I loved every single page of it. I can't wait to read more. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

This book really is a different story for me as a reader. But I truly loved it. The way the characters developed throughout the books truly touched me. Also loved the 80s movies references.. Can't wait to read the rest in this series.
