Product Description

Well written, heart wrenching new adult story. Ryan reminds me of my Drew in ways...
~NY Times and USA Today Bestselling author of One Week Girlfriend, Monica Murphy

New Adult Romance:

Ryan Cosgrove and Liliana Delgado are on a collision course with destiny. They don't know it yet, but before the night is over their lives will be forever changed.

Spending Valentine's Day at a burlesque bar, hadn't been Liliana's ideal way of spending a Friday night. She'd much rather be back at campus, doing homework... until she meets Ryan. Tall, athletic, and gorgeous, Lili can't keep her eyes off him, and despite his gruff manners and drunken disposition she's intrigued.

Ryan's got demons, and they're deep, dark, and eating him alive. Regardless of his attraction to the petite brunette he's tired of fighting, of pretending the last fifteen years haven't been a daily struggle just to get out of bed every morning. That night he decides to end his pain, to leave it all behind and float away into the blessed darkness of oblivion. But fate has other plans for him, Lily finds and rescues Ryan, determined she'll not only save his body, but his soul too.

This is their moment...

Note from Author: For anyone familiar with my previous works, this is nothing like those books. This is a romance yes, but also a book that deals with some serious issues. I hope you'll trust me enough to take this journey with me into contemporary new adult fiction.

About the Author

Marie loves books that make you think, or feel something. Preferably both. And while she's a total girly girl and loves glitter and rainbows, she's just as happy when she's writing about the dark underbelly of society. Well, if things like zombies, and vampires, and werewolves, and mermaids existed. (Although she has it on good authority that mermaids do in fact exist, because the internet told her so.) She's married to the love of her life, a sexy beast of a caveman who likes to refer to himself as Big Hunk. She has two awesome kids, lives in Hawaii, loves cooking and occasionally has been known to crochet. She also really loves talking about herself in the third person. If you want to see what new creations she's got up her sleeves check out her blog: or contact her personally at

More About the Author

Marie Hall has always held a dangerous fascination for creatures that go bump in the night. And mermaids. And of course fairies. Trolls. Unicorns. Shapeshifters. Vampires. Scottish brogues. Kilts. Beefy arms. Ummm... Bad boys! Especially the sexy ones.

Then the day came she realized apart from the sexy bad boy she married, there'd be no vampires/shapeshifters/mermaids/fairies/or even stinky trolls in her future unless she wrote about them. More often than not she can be found roaming the wild, lush tropical forest she calls her backyard (a.k.a. Hawaii) and day dreaming constantly about her latest project. Her Mad Hatter is the first book of her Kingdom Series.

The cover to the left is book 1 of my full length: Choas Time Series, release date of January 2013. Though if the Mayan Calendar was right and the world's set to end in December, well... then I hope you enjoy the picture!

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars. 8 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
3.5 stars

A MOMENT is the first storyline in Marie Hall's new adult, contemporary romance Moments series. The first installment focuses on Ryan Cosgrove-a twenty five year old MMA fighter with demons buried so deep, the pain and suffering in the ring are the only thing keeping the memories at bay; and Liliana Delgado-a twenty one year old, single mother of a seven year old autistic child who works nights to keep food on the table and attends college to ensure her son has a future.

A Moment is a storyline filled with characters that have suffered and loss at the hands of someone they trusted. It is a study in poor family dynamics where the children are made to suffer for the sins of the parents. But the children are now adults themselves, and the demons from their past surface time and again.

What the reader is faced with are several moments in the life of two people who want to be loved and to love. From their first non-moment seeing each other seven years earlier to the last moment in the book, Marie Hall takes the reader on an emotional journey of heartbreak and sorrow, betrayal and pain, and finally acceptance by the one person you care most about in the world.

Liliana is a strong and independent female character but at the end of the day she is like everyone else-she wants to be needed as more than a mother and a daughter. Ryan is a man bordering on the edge of sell-destruction. Fear of losing the woman that he loves, he begins to push Lili away without explanation. It is only when he finally reveals the truth to the nightmares and pain, will Ryan begin the long journey towards healing and self-acceptance.

The storyline reads like a psychiatric nightmare-sexual abuse, teen pregnancy, autistic children, dying parents, betrayal and aggression.

4.0 out of 5 stars Addictive reading 11 Oct 2013
By Deborah TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was recommended by a friend I'd downloaded it months before but just never got round to actually reading it. I wasn't sure when I started reading if it was actually the book for me but once I'd started I couldn't put it down I found myself reading with tears rolling down my face while laughing at things Javi had done I was totally hooked. It's not the easiest of reads, nothing graphic at all but it touches on abuse as well as autism and teenage pregnancy, it's handled very well and the characters all feel so real.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ 11 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First in a new series, and a first read for me by this author. This for me was a brilliantly written story, an observation of how how our earliest experiences can affect the person we become. Ryan Cosgrove is a 25 year old ex-marine, and is currently an MMA fighter. This gives him an outlet for his demons. Fighting, hitting others and getting hit himself soothes his damaged soul. The only person who understands is his cousin Alex, they live together. Alex knows that every year on valentines day is when he needs to be there for Ryan.

Lilliana Delgado is a 21 year old student and mother of Javier who is seven and autistic. She is friends with Alex. Lilli allows Alex to persuade her to go out on valentines night, this isn't a date as they are just friends. But it's on this night out that Lilli meets the dark and brooding Ryan.

Everything about this story just drew me in from the first page. The author really knows how to make you become involved with the characters and their lives. I adored Ryan and Lilli together they both have not had an easy time in life. But whereas Lilli's family were mostly supportive, Ryan's were not. This increased Ryan's feelings of isolation and despondently even further. Up until Lilli, Alex had been Ryan's only support. The growing closeness between Ryan and Lilli was very well written. This is one of those stories that takes the reader on a journey, a very emotional but satisfying one.
I am definitely reading the next book, which features Alex.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read Book. 11 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed reading this book. I found the characters easy to relate too, they seemed real somehow. The fact that things in our early childhood can effect us is very apparent in this book, this book made me feel angry, sad, happy all at the same time. Happy that these two people found love, angry that a father and uncle could do what they did to people they should be protecting and sad that someone would think that they where to blame for something they had no control over. I would truly recommend this book to everyone. This is a definite must read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A moment!! 11 Jun 2014
By cj
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this as part of a collection (beyond desire), but like to review the books seperately. For me this was turning out to be a 5 star review, it was a very emotive book with lots of tough subjects to tackle and i felt that the authors writing portrayed these sensitively. However, it lost a star for me because the epilogue is one of the most important parts of a story and this felt rushed and a little confusing as it changed pov immediately without the reader knowing, i had to re-read as i became lost. I am not sure if this has been changed in this format as on the goodreads site, the author said that the book had been revised and edited, so it could just be a blip on the version i read. Overall a great book and i shall be continuing with the series.
