Fame, fortune, and stadiums full of screaming fans are right around the corner for the rock band at the heart of Stina Lindenblatt’s steamy, intense Pushing Limits series. But it’s an epic love affair that steals the show in this opening act.
When Nolan Kincaid skipped town to chase the music career of his dreams, he knew he wouldn’t miss the reminders of his broken family—he wasn’t so sure he could forget the girl he left behind. Now his band is touring nonstop, the recording sessions go all night, and the groupies are crazed. But when he hears that Hailey Wilkins is in trouble, he drops everything.
Hailey thought she’d missed her chance with Nolan. Five years ago, the moment she realized she loved him was the moment he decided to leave. Now, when a brutal assault lands her in the ICU, Nolan flies straight to her bedside, acting like nothing’s changed. What’s a rock star like him doing, canceling shows and risking his record deal, just to nurse an old friend back to health? And why should Hailey believe he’ll stay this time?
With her attacker still at large, Nolan’s ready to rise to the occasion. He knows he let Hailey down once before, but he’s ready to give her everything, heart and soul—and he’ll fight for the chance to prove it.

Friends to lovers
I'm not really sure how I feel,about this book. I really liked the characters Nolan and Hailey and secondary characters but the story line kind of lost me. Nolan's and Hailey's chemistry was great and their second chance romance was touching. I loved how their friendship just picked up where it left off even with the few bumpy times as they worked through the hurt. It was the story its self that kind of lost me, it was dragged out to far for me. The only reason I gave it a 4* rating was for Nolan and Hailey's romance and the last 1/4th of the book which really kicked in with the emotions.
I'm looking forward to reading more if Ms. Lindenblatt writes about the band members and Alyssa.
I really wanted to like this more.
This One Moment is the first book in the Pushing Limits series and it’s the first book I’ve ever read by Stina Lindenblatt. NetGalley was offering a copy of book 2 in this series, My Song for You and it sounded really good. Since I like to read series in order (even if they are standalone stories like these are) I decided to check out This One Moment. When I saw that it was on sale for 99 cents I bought it and read it.
Second chance love stories are one of my favorite romance tropes but this one just didn’t work real well for me; it was just OK. I get that Nolan needed to get away from town because of what happened (no spoilers here) but I just don’t buy it that he wouldn’t get in touch with Hailey at all. She was supposed to be the love of his life. The story is told in alternating points of view with Nolan and Hailey being the narrators.
I read a lot of New Adult stories and, much to my surprise, I really enjoy most of them. The proliferation of the “F” word doesn’t bother me; neither does the use of a lot of swearing. I’ve also enjoyed reading other “rock star” books so it’s hard for me to put my finger on why I didn’t like this one more. I have to think that it must be the author’s style. I’m not saying there is anything wrong with her writing; just that I think it’s not really for me. I’m writing this review concurrent with writing one for My Song for You so I’m not basing my feelings on just this one book.
I think my feelings about this series really points out that not all readers are going to like all authors, even if the writing is good.
This was the second book from the "our picks" section that has been very sub-par. I won't take Ibooks' recommendations seriously anymore.
