“When life threatens perfect, it’s time to step up and kick life in the balls.”

Ella's perfect moment was taken from her is the worst possible way. Humiliated, heart broken and absolutely determined not to allow her heart be destroyed for a second time, she builds an ice wall around her heart.

Preston has known that he was in love his big sister's best friend since the age of fifteen. Over ten years on, and an opportunity to be her knight in shining armour is too good to miss. Putting his heart on the line, he's on a mission to show Ella that the perfect moment is possible.

Ella's instinct is to run when she realises her feelings for her bestie's little brother may just run a little bit deeper than just friends. But if she can't run, she'll try every trick in the book to shake off his affection and realign his feelings.

She already had her perfect moment, and there is no chance she'll let her heart thaw for Preston. No matter how good he looks in the firefighter's Christmas calendar.

*** Contains steamy-hot moments, romance, friendship and a bulk load of


A Perfect Moment is Becca Lee's debut novel and what a debut it is!!! If I didn't know that for a fact, I would've mistaken it for the work of a seasoned author. She's blown it out of the water and then some!!!!

The cover is what initially drew me to the book, even before I read the blurb!!! What can I say, I have a thing for covers :D!!! The blurb got me hooked and I knew then and there that I had to know how this story was going to play out and I wasn't disappointed. 

The story line is  original - how many books have you read where the heroine is actually older then her man??  It covers all the bases that a great contemporary romance should - suspense, humour, a few twists along the way, steamy hot sex scenes!! Lets not forget a super sexy firefighter and a feisty redhead!

The story centers around
Ella who fast forward five years hasn't quite recovered from finding out her fiance was cheating on her on their wedding day.  
(All i can say is thank god for BBF's with a mean right swing and rescuing you with champagne!!!)


Preston, Jo's baby brother (something that Ella refers to him as quite often, which I found absolutely hilirious!) who's been in love with Ella since he was fifteen.  A fact that his family are all aware of.  He's a firefighter and surfer whenever he's free.
He wants nothing more then to take the friendship he has with Ella to the next level, prove to her that he's nothing like her ex-fiance and can give her a happy ever after.


Just when things are starting to look up for Preston and Ella, there's a twist in the road.  Can their fledgling relationship take the hits and make it back onto the smooth road to happily ever after? or will they lose everything including their friendship?? Well.... you'll have to read the book to find out!!

I loved how all the characters meshed together wonderfully and they all had their role to play. 

The constant ribbing and joking between Ella and Preston was hilarious, which just showed how deep the connection between them was.
And the chemistry was off the charts!!! Made me hot all over :D


And the fact that he knew everything about her, the good and the bad and he still wanted to be with her regardless!!

I just want to say that I'd like a BBF like Jo, she absolutely rocks and definitely one of my favorite supporting characters!!

This book covers so many emotions - it will have you laughing. You'll shed a few tears. You'll feel regret and a bit of anger. But above all else this book will give you HOPE.  Hope that there is a happy ever after for those that have been hurt. Hope that yes trusting fully after being hurt so badly by someone you love is difficult but taking a chance and plunging in feet first takes courage. It's worth it to find a person that will care and love you unconditionally!!

***** out of 5 stars. 
Can't wait for the next book and Jo's story
