Alone in Hawaii, Andie befriends the staff and quickly grows to care for them, making her determined to revive the company.

As luck would have it, she meets the mysterious Warren Yates on Christmas Eve. They share a cup of coffee, some conversation, and even a moment, which leads to many more in the coming weeks.

*My Thoughts*

Note: This Review contains NO spoilers

I am still swooning after reading this. What an emotional and heartfelt journey for both Andie and Warren. Set in the beautiful and mystical Hawaiian Islands, this romance flowed and grew from the first page until the end. I was absolutely carried away with every moment these two characters spent together... and apart. Of course, the descriptive words of location also made this story magical and romantic.

Moments Like This flowed seamlessly from the beginning to end; first, in Andie's POV, then in Warren's POV. With both POVs, it gave this romance so much more depth allowing me to understand where these two characters were coming from; in coming to terms with their past and present, then, in the end, their future. Such vivid and eloquent storytelling that whisked me away into their world.

I have read a couple of Anna Gomez's books under her pen name, Christine Brae, and loved the stories. So, I was pretty excited to read this new story by Anna Gomez and Kristoffer Polaha. In the end, Moments Like This is a swoon-worthy and heartfelt romance that took me away to the magical and mystical Hawaiian Islands which, not just tugged, but pulled at my heartstrings. I am so looking forward to reading the next books in this series!
