Title: This One Moment
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.

Just by reading the blurb you can tell that there is going to be a HEA, right? So let me just cut to the chase and say that, although you know it’s coming, it’s the process of getting there that has me completely in love with this. I mean, childhood sweethearts separated by tragedy, only to come back to each other, through tragedy…couldn’t write it better if I tried.
Nolan, aka Tyler, has finally made it big. His band is playing sell out arenas. His fans are plentiful and life is great, right? Eh. He just can’t seem to get his mind off of his childhood best friend/crush who he left in Minnesota after a tragic event that he can’t seem to remember. When he receives a call that she’s been attacked and is in a coma, there was no question that he needed to head home to keep her safe.
Hailey thought that she’d never see her best friend, the one person she’s always loved, again. But when she hears his voice for the first time in five years, she thinks she’s dreaming. Little did she know she was actually in a coma after being attacked. Even worse? She can’t remember what happened to land her in the hospital. Even though she tries to convince her female bestie and Nolan that she’s fine, Nolan insists on staying with her until he knows she’s absolutely safe.
The best part about this read for me was that we get both POV’s and threw moments of remembering (from both of them), we’re thrust back into not only the tragic events, but how they feel in love at the young age of seventeen. The mystery behind both memory loses will keep you on the edge of seat throughout the entire book. It really isn’t until the end that you even get a glimpse of who or what might have happened.
