THE MOMENT OF LETTING GO by J.A. Redmerski
(August 11, 2015; Forever Trade Paperback)
You can follow the rules or you can follow your heart...
Sienna Murphy never does anything without a plan. And so far her plans have been working. Right after college, she got a prestigious job and gained the stability she'd always craved-until work takes her to the sun-drenched shores of Oahu and places her in the path of sexy surfer Luke Everett. For the first time, she lets her heart take control. Drawn to his carefree charm, she makes a spontaneous and very un-Sienna-like decision to drop everything and stay in Hawaii for two more weeks.
Luke lives fast and wild. When he meets Sienna, he's convinced that some no-strings-attached fun is just what she needs. As their nights quickly turn from playful to passionate, Luke can't deny the deep connection he feels. But there's a reason Luke doesn't do long-term. He can't promise Sienna forever, when the enormity of his past has shown him just how fragile the future can be . . .
Sienna Murphy is a twenty-two year old workaholic. She’s come to Hawaii to work her magic as an event coordinator for a society wedding when she gets a wake up call. A wake up call in the form of a beautiful surfer.
Luke makes her reevaluate her life and finally seek the answers to questions that have long plagued her. Just being with him gives her a freedom that she has never known before and once she agrees to spend more time with him in this tropical paradise, she will never be the same.
“Have you ever had that feeling,” she goes on, “when you know deep down that you should do something? Like if you don’t do it, you’ll regret it for the rest of your life?”
“Most people never let their feet leave the ground,” he goes on. “Whether they’re afraid of heights, or afraid of hospitals, or they stay in the same place all their life because they’re afraid of change – so many people go through life on the ground and die without ever knowing that they can fly”
Luke Everett lives life on the edge and he revels in every moment of it. He and his small band of friends are true seekers – adrenaline junkies looking for the ultimate rush. But there’s just something about Sienna that soothes his restless soul.
When she finds out who he truly is and about the tragedy that drives him, she’s going to run away. So with the short time that they have together, he’s going to teach her how to “drink the sky” and live a life unbound. And in return, she’s going to show him that falling in love is sometimes more far more dangerous than anything else.
The Moment of Letting Go is another highly emotional and poignant work from J.A. Redmerski. Once again, she masterfully combines her signature brand of tender romance, tragedy and heart wrenching drama to bring to life a story that will stay with you long after you finish reading it.
You’ll be both exhilarated and transformed by her words and maybe, just maybe you’ll never take another moment for granted again…
