Olivia Gentry is unlike most young women of the era as her parents believed she should have the same education as her brothers and be prepared to help manage the family horse ranch. She’s well read and informed on current events but hasn’t fared well in choosing the right man. She’s loved one man since she was a young girl but he’s made it clear that he’s not an option. Jim Somerset is the town farrier and a close family friend of the Gentrys. He’s also been in love with Olivia since forever but ...more

I really should make a more concerted effort to read more historical romances. In the unendingly deep pool of alpha male heroes, there’s something just so inherently romantic about men who appreciate a woman’s beauty, but are more concerned about her values and with safeguarding her virtue. Actually, everyone is concerned with safeguarding the women's virtue.

Olivia turned, her cheeks warm, to her brother Matt. She stepped back quickly. “Of course not. Have you met Mr. Armsworth?"

For This Moment is the third installment from The Gentrys of Paradise series. I thought it was pretty good and I enjoyed it. I was not sure how I thought of Olivia at first, but she quickly grew on me. I love her in the scenes with Jim. They have great chemistry together, however, they do not know that each other have their own secret.

I give For This Moment four stars. I would like to catch up and read the first two of the series.

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my ow

Still on the historical romance kick. But then again, I love Holly Bush. I read about her Crawfords and now I’m on to the Gentrys. However, I have NOT read Matt’s book which I have already bought. I did read the prequel/parents story and loved it. I missed old Beau in this book but he is Olivia’s mind at all times.

What I really liked about this book is the family. They rally around each other and it’s good to see healthy relationships between everyone. Including Annie, Matt’s wife. She’s a sweet

For This Moment is the third book in The Gentrys of Paradise series by Holly Bush. I haven't read the other books before this one but don't feel like it was a necessity.

This book is set in Virginia in 1871. Olivia Gentry is now of age and is an educated, independent woman. She knows just as much about politics and the way of the world as any man and certainly as much as her brothers. In a time where women are meant to be gentle belles, Olivia stands out. She has had one bad experience with a ma

Olivia Gentry has the advantage of coming from a wealthy family and the disadvantage of having older brothers who are constantly, and annoyingly, looking out for her. While she understands they only want to protect her, she has grown weary of not being her own woman in charge of her own life. After having fallen for the wrong man once, she now feels that she may never find love. Except for one man, someone she’s known her entire life, who she has feelings for, but she believes he doesn’t return ...more

For This Moment is a well-written historical fiction romance, about love, taking chances and overcoming the fear of rejection. It takes place in Virginia, during the 1870s.

Olivia Gentry was an educated woman from a wealthy family, but she was not the usual Southern Bell. Olivia was independent, opinionated, worked with horses and loved politics. Her weakness, however, was her brother’s best friend, Jim. The man she has loved for ages. It broke Olivia’s heart to hear that he didn’t feel the same

For this moment

I loved the story. Mrs. Bush has cultivated the Gentry family and friends into someone you really want to get to know. The real emotions that come out holds you spell bound. The dialogue is sharp and witty. The pain is believable. This is a wonderful series and I can not wait for Adam's story. Well done.
