Caught in the Moment was a cute surprise I wasn’t expecting. Remember in high school that one crush you had and never got a chance of fulfilling? Well Laurel Kane, the heroine had a crush on the star football player, Quinton Ferris. Laurel worked on the yearbook, but one of her favorite subjects in photography was Quinton. When Quinton makes a snide comment to her, the school takes it up to bully her into humiliation with claims that were never true. This part kind of ticked me off since I remember bullying in high school and really wanted to kick Quinton’s tush around afterwards. Mostly he was so embarrassed about what he said he never apologized, but instead acted like she didn’t exist.
Fast forward and now Laurel is a successful photographer doing a book on skydiving with her cousin. Quinton and his twin younger brothers run Chute Shack where Laurel is set up to photograph, but no way will she go up in the plane. While Laurel remembers Quinton, it takes a while for him to figure out who she is. Now Quinton wants to show her he’s not the same shallow teenager she knew back in high school.
For most of the book I felt these two weren’t going to deal with the high school incident, but they do, let me assure you. They fall in lust for each other rather quickly, but not into bed as fast as I thought they would. That was a relief for me though. It made some of Quinton’s intentions a little easier to handle knowing he really had changed. But so has Laurel. She took this experience and turned it around, coming out of her shy shell in college.
Short in length, hot on passion, fun with flirting younger brothers, I really enjoyed this first book in the Freefall series!
