An actor on possession charges, hell bent on destroying his own life meets a man who quietly works to make the world a better place.
Jacob Riley is a typical Hollywood former child star with issues. He has already done prison time and at the age of twenty-six has been arrested again.
Ethan Myers is the owner and manager of Macs, an education center providing teaching and learning to local low income families. Losing his partner to cancer leaves him lost and alone and he buries himself in his work to start to mend his broken heart.
Sparks fly when Jacob has to complete his community service at Macs. Their relationship grows against a background of disenfranchised street gang members, arson, the Oscars, and despite their prejudices.
Can Jacob Riley be saved?
I’m just going to tell you right up front how much I loved Ethan. He is such a caring, giving, supportive man who just wants to make other people’s lives better and you can’t help but love him for it. He’s strong and protective when he needs to be, but also just a good friend. When Jacob comes into Ethan’s world, you know there’s going to be a clash of personalities-especially since Jacob acts like a petulant child a large portion of the time.
Jacob’s one of those guys who is pretty full of himself-arrogant and manipulative when it suits his purpose and at times I just wanted to smack him when he was acting like a total ass. Once he’s ensconced at Macs, that persona at first slowly starts to drop away until one particular moment when he realizes (thanks to a push from Ethan) what other people see when they look at him. A lot of this story is Jacob’s journey to find who he really is, and to become a better person—one that was really inside of him all along.
Though Ethan and Jacob being together does create a conflict of interest given their initial relationship and the reason Jacob is at Macs in the first place, it is mostly glossed over in favor of following Jacob’s transformation from his egotistical, “it’s not me, it’s everyone else” mentality to someone who truly cares about others and wants to change for the better. Jacob and Ethan together did feel natural and their intimate scenes were plenty hot.
Moments was an enjoyable read that gets 4 solid stars from me. I do recommend this to M/M romance fans, and this book is intended for readers 18+ for adult language and M/M sexual content.
