The novel is told in Aislinn's point of view. She is naive and inexperienced when it comes to boys and doesn't have the best self esteem when it comes to her looks. Aislinn, or Ash, was real and very easy to relate to. Her friends, family, and new boyfriend, Teagan always tell her how beautiful she is both on the inside and on the outside. She has the insecurities, thoughts, and reactions that any 17 year old high school girl would have. I could totally relate to all the things she was experiencing because I remember how it was in high school.
I absolutely loved Teagan! He is so sweet and affectionate towards Aislinn and is always telling her how beautiful and amazing she is. But like any person, he isn't perfect and doesn't try to be. He has quite the playboy past but he is up front with Ash about his lurid past and how he has completely changed for the better. Teagan is a few years older than Ash, a roommate of Ash's older brother Connors from college. They both have vastly different experiences when it comes to relationships. When Teagan has to go back to college after being away on spring break for two weeks, they have to deal with being in a new relationship as well as cope with the distance. This is only one of the hardships that they have to deal with in their new coupledom.
I absolutely loved this book and how refreshing and real it is! I am in serious Teagan and Ash withdrawals! I wish the author would have written in alternating point of views so I could have learned more of Teagan's background and thoughts and feelings on things but I still enjoyed this book very much! I can't wait to see what Trinity has in store for us next!
The story line felt shallow and staged, as though the author wanted to convey a message but focused so much on the theme (love your body & self-confidence and that instant love is possible) that she forgot to tell a story. There are so many parts of the story that could have been explored e.g. What was the root of the sibling tension? These additional threads would have boosted the storyline.
And the romance? I just didn't feel it was working. It appeared all too cheesy.
So if you want a book that is impossible to put down, a cover to cover read; one that is light-hearted, funny and yet deals with the honest and every day issues of a high school senior and graduate, then Pivotal Moments IS that book.

The novel is written by Ash's point of view. She is naive, inexperienced when it comes to boys, and doesn't have much self esteem about her looks. There are valid reasons for her self-doubts. Her friends, family, and new found boyfriend, Teeg, tell her often how beautiful she is both inside and out. As the reader, I found myself wanting to reach out and shake Ash, to tell her to believe them and to believe in herself. I could relate to Ash and I'm sure other readers could too. The novel is that powerful!
Teeg... OMG, he seems dreamy. But like any realistic person, he has flaws. He is open about his flaws and how he has changed. Teeg is older than Ash, a roommate of Ash's older brother from college. Teeg and Ash experience in relationships is vastly different. Ash is just 17 and Teeg is 23. After a couple of weeks together, he has to go back to college and the two have to sustain a long distance relationship. These are just some the things the two have to face, and I found myself rooting for them even more.
The only negative thing I can say is the novel ended. It didn't have any ending cliffhangers, which is a nice relief. It DOES however leave me in Ash and Teeg withdrawn. What will I read next? LOL.
I loved, LOVED this novel!!! I highly recommend it.
NOTE: I was given an ARC by the author for an honest review.
Aislinn is your typical teen who shares many of the insecurities about her body and concerns about college that teens have. As she’s nearing the end of her senior year her focus is on her college preparation, and while she has never been part of the popular crowd, she has her best friend Penny at her side and that’s all she needs...Enter, swoon worthy Teagan, her brother’s delicious college friend with a heartbreaker past and his eye on Aislinn. However, things may not be smooth sailing, with an overprotective brother, the mean girls out to get her and her own anxieties holding her back, there is going to be some turbulent waters.
I am on the fence with this book. While I enjoyed it for its entertainment value, it was just lacking something which I can’t quite put my finger on. While there were certain aspects which I imagine many teens can relate to, such as the main characters insecurities and lack of self-esteem. I fear I am past the point in my life where I find these things as relatable as I once did. However, I commend the author on the emotional growth of the character, there is nothing worse than when a character doesn’t learn anything. But Aislinn, learned to both believe in and stand up for herself.
I did enjoy the cute fluffy romance at times, even if it was a little cheesy. Teagan was an easily likeable character and his past indiscretions were a good addition as they made him more ‘human’, since he sometimes came off as too flawless. Penny and Connor (and Zver for that matter) made great supporting characters. Although Connors big protective brother routine became almost frustrating, especially considering his own poor decisions.
Overall, an entertaining read if you’re looking for something fluffy to fill your summer days, which I think a younger YA audience would enjoy. However, for me there was a certain predictability to the plot that was a little too formulaic for my taste.
Skill level aside, the story itself was wonderful. From Ais' very first meeting with Teagan, there is a sweet tension that grows between them. My heart fluttered as I read, sqeeing in delight at the way Teagan was with her and the way she was in return. Sigh...
Needless to say, I can't wait for book two!
Yes, read this book. Yes, sigh and swoon and love this book. And, yes, point Teagan my way. I'll even give him my parking spot!
