This was a sweet, easy read for me. It was a mostly clean, sweet romance story. I had read "Little Things" an thought it was pretty good, so I continued on with the series. First off, I like the cover. It fits Melanie pretty well, but I think this book was all about the male lead, Roman.
Roman's story begins in childhood with a devastating bang that draws you to him right away. Despite his agonizing past, he is able to move on and have a loving childhood, even developing a crush on a pretty girl during his teen years. He grows into a pretty amazing, somewhat shy man.
Melanie is loving, caring woman who works as nurse and tries her best to take care of her patients like she'd like to be taken care of. She hasn't had the best luck with romance. First, her boyfriend and best friend (Duke and Raya from book 1)fall in love. Then, her colleague comes on to her and they start a sexy fling, only for her to find out he's already taken. She tries to focus on herself and makes some changes in her life.
When circumstances land Roman in Melanie's care, they both remember the past and realize that the feeling is still there, but they aren't sure where to go from here or whether a relationship between them could actually work.
Overall, I think that Roman's character out-shined Melanie's, but their relationship was sweet to "watch" unfold. Roman's story was surprisingly emotional and deep. I thought that there were quite a lot of "filler" moments that seemed to stretch the story-line longer than necessary, but even with them, it ended up being a solid plot. I did enjoy the book and would recommend it to anyone who has read Little Things by Madison Street and anyone who is into romances with sexy fire fighters and nurses.

What would you do if you were given a second chance at love? Would you go all in and never look back or let the chance walked out the door? This is exactly what happens to Roman. He had the biggest crush on Melanie while in high school. But he always felt that she was out of his league. Plus she had a boyfriend. Roman has thought about her everyday since then. If he was only given a second chance……
Melanie is the perfect girl. She works as a nurse in the ICU, has an amazing ability to light up the room just by being in it. Although her love life is suffer because she is too dedicated to her job. But she is fine with that. She loves being able to spend time with her best friends, Duke and Raya. But Melanie doesn’t realize is that she has lots of male suitors.
As Melanie ventures to an old bakery that has her favorite desserts, she runs into this wall of a man…..what is it about him that has him consistently on her mind when she leaves? Roman can not believe his eyes when she is there. Once again, he is without words as she slips past him.
But fate has other things in store for Roman and Melanie. This time, Melanie will be the one fighting to make things right between them. Roman will have to come to terms with what has happened in his life. Will he be able to get past it or will it prevent him from his one true chance with Melanie? Will Melanie be able to push Roman to live again?
This story was about learning to see the good inside of someone, believing in yourself and allowing others to help you to the place you need to be at. This story was very touching to me. There were several times that I had to wipe tears from my eyes.
Roman has endured loss twice in his life, both times when he was young. For him losing not only his father, but then losing his mother to a fire seemed to take away part of his spirit. Luckily he had his aunt and uncle who took him in raised him as if he was their own, and allowed him the chance to follow his dreams. For Roman, this was to become the one thing he could to make amends for not being able to save his mom, and to make her proud, he becomes a firefighter.
Melanie has become a nurse in order to help save lives, especially after watching her best friend lose her mom to domestic abuse. Her caring nature added to her happy go lucky personality makes her perfect for the job. Mel, has endured some pretty hard blows herself, but hasn't allowed them to alter her personality. From almost losing her best friend, to having her high school sweetheart admit to having feelings for her best friend, to then dealing with other jerks in the department of relationships, she has just about chalked up finding her Mr. Right. But again, there is always that pesky little thing called fate that has an alternate plan in mind.
This book was/is wonderfully written and will pull you in and have you wanting both Roman and Melanie to find the happiness that they both desire and deserve. After several meetings and crossing each others paths you find yourself wondering if they will actually realize that they know of each other. The best thing about this book is that it really does make you realize that we do get those "second chances" to find that one thing that we really need, even if for some reason we may have missed it or overlooked it the first time around. Not only do we get to admire the strength and determination of Melanie and Roman, but we also get a brief glance of Raya and Duke from the previous book. And of course we can't forget the other best friend Rob, who has yet decided that he wants to settle down. This book shows that with time, compassion, a strong support group, and of course that thing called fate, anything can happy, and life can change in an instant. It will also have you taking a moment to appreciate what you have in life. For those of you who like a good love story that just pulls at your heart, than this is a book that you will want to read. The other good thing is, even if you haven't read the first book, you can still read this one and not be at a loss as to what takes place.
So, Little Moments is book two in the Second Chances series. Book one is Little Things and even though I originally read it because of the One Direction song title reference, IT IS AN AMAZING STORY! If you haven't read it yet, one click it ASAP. Both stories are very good and both stories are very different. Luckily, both stories have swoon worthy boys in them.
If you read Little Things, you remember Melanie Stevens. She was Duke Grayson's girlfriend before Duke fell in love with Raya Winters. Melanie is a gorgeous green eyed blonde and definitely not the kind of girl you would think loses the boy. But she does. Even though lost Duke to Raya she's stayed friends with them and is godmother to their little girl. You really feel badly that she hasn't found the one yet. Melanie has this why do I always lose the guy moment and it's kind of heartbreaking, because Melanie is really a too good to be true kind of girl.
Then there's Roman Moretti. Super swoon worthy with dark good looks and an amazingly fit body from being a firefighter for the FDNY. Not to mention an incredible person. Roman lost his father to cancer at a young age and if that's not bad enough, he lost his mom when he was eleven years old in an apartment fire. Taken in by his aunt and uncle, they become a huge part of his life. They take care of him and treat him as if he was their own son.
As a teen ager Roman worked in his aunt and uncles bakery. The very bakery where he meets seventeen year Melanie Stevens for the very first time. I felt like when he met her it was like one of those thunderbolt moments. You know, you feel it in your soul. You meet this person and you'll never be the same again. Even though Roman felt like this about Melanie, he never said a word. She had a boyfriend and Roman is not about to try and interfere with that. What he does know that even after meeting Melanie Stevens that just one time, she is the one for him.
Roman and Melanie's paths don't cross for the next ten years.Then they literally run into each other outside Roman's aunt and uncle's bakery when Melanie brought her goddaughter to get some of the delicious eclairs she remembers from the bakery. Roman is speechless. Face to face once again with the woman of his dreams and now she has a child. He thinks he's missed his chance again until his Aunt Maggie tells him Layla isn't Melanie's child.
So you'd think Roman would go and get the girl after all this time right? Nope that's not what happens. Roman is busy being a firefighter and Melanie is busy being a nurse and their paths won't cross again for a while.
During this time Melanie begins to date (?) one of the doctors she works with. He's very handsome and very good between the sheets. He's also a slime ball and I wish I could have whacked him upside the head. Sadly for Melanie (fortunately for Roman) Dr. Easton Quinn is not relationship material. He also dredges up old feelings of insecurity in Melanie. She wonders why she isn't good enough to get the guy.
Roman and Melanie finally are brought together again by tragedy. Roman's heroic rescue of a little boy in a devastating fire have left him badly burned with internal injuries and a fractured back. Guess who one of his nurses is? Of course...the lovely Melanie. She is such an incredible and caring person I had to wonder if she was real.
During his time in the hospital Roman is in a great deal of pain and learns he may not be able to go back to active duty as a firefighter. He becomes angry and even though Melanie is trying to be there for Roman, he pushes her away. But, Melanie is truly drawn to Roman. Even when she gently touches him she feels a jolt of electricity through her system.
Will Roman let Melanie in? Will Melanie's relationship insecurities let her find love with Roman? And why on earth does Dr. Easton Quinn show up again in our story?
Little Moments is a story about love, hope and never letting go of what you want. I absolutely love Roman Moretti. Not only is he beautiful to look at, but considering everything he's been through he really is the total package.
A four lip smack review for Madison Street's Little Moments. I'm totally looking forward to Little Temptations the next installment of this series.
Hard feelings for a young eleven year old boy. But Roman has every right…
Thankfully, he has a wonderful aunt and uncle who take him in and raise him as their own. Taken in and loved, around baked goods and happy moments.
As Roman gets older, he helps more and more at the bakery, and one day a girl comes in…he didn’t know what to say or how to act, but in that moment he knew she was his forever.
Of course, Roman isn’t even a blip on her radar…at seventeen, she has a boyfriend, one that she thought she’d be with forever…but fate has a funny way of making things work out. Or not.
Fast forward ten years…
“Being a firefighter was my dream. It was my purpose. It was my one and only plan. Even wanting Melanie was a surprise in the mix, but deep down, being a part of the New York City Fire Department was all I ever really wanted. When Dr. Ferguson told me that I had a slim to no chance of ever getting back in, I broke down in tears. What do you do when your whole life is turned upside down? How do you pick yourself up and move on from that? How do you live on? Can you?”
Life has a way of bringing soul mates together, even if they don’t see it. Even if life circumstances are not the best, or even how you’d dream them to be when you are finally reunited with the one person who makes your heart beat faster.
Melanie and Roman are thrust into a relationship where he needs her, and she wants him. He doesn’t handle it well, but a little Italian woman and spunky little blonde nurse don’t give up on him. It’s not about duty anymore…it’s about the little moments.
This book is a PERFECT summer read! It’s sweet, and breezy. I would absolutely recommend stretching out on your favorite lounge chair or towel, even a couch or hammock and turn the page. You’ll find that once you start, you can’t stop and when it ends, you feel that dreamy sigh of happily ever after.
