GENRE: NA Contemporary Romance
SOURCE: Publisher

Sienna Murphy never does anything without a plan. And as far her plans have been working. Right after college, she got a prestigious job and gained the stability she'd always craved—until work takes her to the sun-drenched shores of Oahu and places her in the path of sexy surfer Luke Everett. For the first time, she lets her heart take control. Drawn to his carefree charm, she makes a spontaneous and very un-Sienna-like decision to drop everything and stay in Hawaii for two more weeks. Luke lives fast and wild. When he meets Sienna, he's convinced that some no-strings-attached fun is just what she needs. As their nights quickly turn from playful to passionate, Luke can't deny the deep connection he feels. But there's a reason Luke doesn't do long-term. He can'ts promise Sienna forever, when the enormity of his past has shown him just how fragile the future can be...


My first try with J.A. Redmerski couldn't have gone better! Sometimes you find a read to pass the time, others one that makes you dream and others one that hits home. "The Moment of Letting Go" pretty much covers all of the above, but its real power is definitely of the last kind. At least it has been for me.

The story is simple, what is complex are the emotions of the characters, their fears and faults—or what they perceive as such. Sienna and Luke have more to show you than a simple chemistry or a 'Summer fling', in fact, there's no denial destiny made those two meet for a reason. There are certain aspects that particularly surprised me because of how much I could relate to, and also how someone like Luke can make you feel. I think Redmerski has done a great job by telling this story in a way that touches the reader and makes them feel part of the book, one that is difficult to forget especially because of its important message...

It's undoubtedly the perfect Summer read, although I can assure you it's not a matter of season what makes you fall for this book. Pick it up whenever you want, really, just pick. It. Up!
