Laura always worked hard to be a decent person, why would the FBI target her? Her boss's son, Chase, tries to help, which surprises her. She soon finds out that her boss might not be the thoughtful, jovial man she thought he was. Her only choice as far as she can see is to resign to avoid being an accessory, but that's when the trouble starts.
Chase Donovan feels anchorless without any real direction in his life. Being the son of a wealthy businessman isn't all it is cracked up to be. Despite being a lawyer, Chase doesn't practice. Instead, he lives his life as little more than a bored playboy. That was until he finds himself rescuing his father's bookkeeper, Laura.
Despite the fact, that he chased hired thugs off his boat with evil intentions, and even recognized one, he still finds it hard to believe his father is the instigator. If he is, then he'll send more thugs to finish the job. There is only one thing to do is to sail way to safety with the battered Laura. Problem is Laura doesn't really trust him. Then again, he can't believe anything she is saying about his father. It is time for him to use his investigative skills to discover the truth about his father and his feelings for Laura Roberts.
The chemistry between the two build more like a normal relationship as opposed to love at first sight. This is more realistic because she thought Chase might be associated with the thugs. It is a sweet unfurling of a romance as they race to uncover the true culprits before they're found. The suspense builds with each page.
Magic Moment has a classic romance aura with a contemporary twist. This is an enthralling tale from a new author. Keep your eyes out for Angela Adams.
It was great to read a story set in NJ/Philadelphia area. There are not many books set in that area ~ especially Atlantic City and the surrounding shore area.
I liked Chase and Laura and that their relationship formed pretty fast due to certain circumstances. I thought that they were so cute together although I felt like kicking Chase more than once because of his back and forth about his dad's involvement in Laura's kidnapping.
Stories with misunderstandings that separate the hero and heroine or how the hero and heroine let outside influences damage their growing relationship and trust in one another always interest me. It's the whole boy meets girl~they fall in love~breakup~get back together with a fair amount of groveling~then get their HEA. Love these types of stories.
Light easy read with a few nail biting moments and some steamy scenes thrown in.
Love this cover!!
3 out of 5 rating. Will look for more from this author. :)
***Received copy from Angela Adams~~Thank you so much for contacting me with the opportunity to read and review magic Moment!! :)
Chase Donovan has the life all guys dream about. He spends his days surfing the Internet and schmoozing his father's clients. Nights are spent gambling in Atlantic City and bedding the lovelies he finds at the casino tables.
Laura Roberts has spent her life wanting that picture perfect family life and owning her own antique shop. She's working as a bookkeeper for Chase's father, Dick, at the Produce Market in Philly to help achieve her dreams. But her dreams are shattered when the FBI drags her off for questioning while the market employees can only watch and gossip. Laura returns to work the next day, resigns and after leaving her workplace is sedated and abducted. She regains consciousness and recognizes one of the abductors as being her boss's driver, Ron, who is about to rape her and then murder her. Why would her boss want her dead? Is he involved in some type of illegal activity?
In the meantime, Chase is bored with Atlantic City and decides to escape the hustle and bustle for a while on his boat. Arriving at the marina, he notices that the lights are on and there is a limo parked nearby. Grabbing his gun, he silently boards the boat to find Laura tied up and being raped by two thugs. Thwarting the rape and murder, it becomes a race to see if Chase and Laura can put together the pieces of the puzzle. What is going on with Chase's father and why is the FBI so interested in him? Where does Laura fit in the puzzle?
Traveling with Chase and Laura from Philly to Magic Lake Island to Sea Tower, MD really ramps up the intrigue. Throw in the FBI and some thugs and you're hooked! The ending comes with a twist that I didn't see coming. All in all, it's a fun read!

Their relationship doesn't follow the usual path, either. With all the twists and turns of a real-life relationship and plenty of sexual heat, these two characters have to find a way to save Laura's life while Chase comes to terms with his father.
A surprise ending caps off this very satisfying read. I look forward to more from Angela Adams.
