Book Description

*Due to sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.*

ENTANGLED MOMENTS

A deadly accident can take a life in more than one way.

Four years ago, Carlene Adams made a deadly mistake. A tragic accident derailed the future she'd hoped for, taking the life of the man she'd planned to spend forever with.

As a self-imposed penance for her solitary sin, Carlene has given up on every dream she ever had. She has committed to spend every remaining moment trying to make up for that one instance when everything changed.

Then she gets a second chance.

When Carlene meets Nick Johnson, the single kiss they share awakens the desires she shoved aside for so long. Suddenly she wants more than what she believe she deserves. Will she ever see him again?

A thing of fate.

Leaving the life she built on regret, Carlene waits for fate to intervene. But just as she begins to believe in a fresh start, she's forced to realize a horrible truth—one with the power to send her second chance crashing before it even takes off.

Nick isn't who she thought he was. She isn't the girl he believed her to be, either. Their lives were intertwined even before they met, and if Carlene tells him the truth, she’ll risk tearing them apart—for good.

REKINDLED MOMENTS

The truth will always find a way out.

Carlene Adams' new life has been an illusion, her newfound joy just for rent. The life she craves can't really belong to a girl who is responsible for someone's death.

Her greatest fear has been realized. Nick Johnson, her second chance at love, has discovered her true identity and disappeared from her life.

She will need to find a way to move on without Nick. But the memories of their time together haunt her relentlessly. As Serendipity's Businessman of the Year, his face is everywhere—in magazines, on the television screen, and behind her eyelids. Soon, rumors about her past cause her life to spin out of control, and she finds herself even further from her dreams.

But Carlene is good at hiding from the past. She's done it once before. She can do it again. She can leave her hometown and begin again somewhere new. But she can't move on without telling Nick the truth about the life he thinks she took, and everything that came before.

BITTERSWEET MOMENTS

Can the embers of an old life ignite the flames of a new love?

Six years ago, Melisa Bergfeld’s husband died. As the grief of losing him tore into her, she lost his last gift to her—their unborn child—and her hopes and dreams turned to ashes.

Left with a life she no longer wants, she seeks salvation in a homeless shelter. For a while, that’s more than enough.

But when a fire breaks out, in walks the man who will try to save her life—if she’ll let him.

Florian “Heat” Dane has left behind a trail of broken hearts in his wake, including pieces of his own. For all the girls he’s used to fill the hole in his heart, there has been just one he could never erase from his memories. But when Melisa married his best friend Scott Bergfeld, he knew she would never be his the way she’d been the one unforgettable night they spent together. Now that she’s back in his life, he will do anything to recapture her heart, even if it means giving away his own.

Heat still has the power to ignite passion in Melisa, something she both desires and rejects. He’s a known heartbreaker, and if there is one thing Melisa doesn’t need, it’s another crack in her heart. But when he confesses his love for her, she fears her secrets from the past will surface. And she might be the one to break his heart this time.


Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Dori Lavelle, is a mother, wife, and a sucker for happy ever afters and mint chocolate. Give her a great romance novel and a mug of hot chocolate and she'd be one happy woman. Growing up, Dori read a lot, and when she wasn't happy with a particular ending, she wrote a different one, just for herself. Before long, she was writing stories when she should have been doing homework. The time has come for her to share the stories she cooks up in her head.

I absolutely loved reading this collection. It is so well written and enticing that I couldn't put it down. I could "see" the events as they were taking place and could not wait to get to the next page! Each novella flows perfectly and I was so glad to have all 3 at the same time! I give each novella five stars and recommend the collection to anyone looking for a great read. I also look forward to more works from Dori Lavelle, one of my new favorite authors!

Book 1 - I really enjoyed the plot and the direction but I found it to be too fast. I would have loved more information and a slower pace. It is a novella and not a full novel so that is why it was short but it left me wanting so much more. With that said, I wasn't disappointed with what I had in front of me. The idea and story line was terrific. Girl goes from nothing to everything to have it all lost? I guess I'll find that out in the next one :)
The beginning of the story was great and even paced with the shelter and meeting the characters was nicely done. I am looking forward to hearing more of the history of what happened and I like the way the author pulled us into that but didn't reveal too much, left us to keep reading to find out more.
Book 2 - I was looking forward to this part of the story because it held all the secrets that I needed answers to, and I got them :)
"I've fulfilled the promise I made you and now I'm giving it back to you. Please keep it for me."
I have to say that meeting Chris was great. I love his character and story. I only wish this had been a novel then we could have had more of him. He seemed like an amazing person, troubled but amazing.
There is an event in this book (no spoilers so I'll watch my wording here) that takes place and it is pretty much the base of the book. Let me just say that if I was Carlene I would have reacted differently. I would have been pulling some hair and clawing some eyes! She is so patient, caring and understanding that it drove me nuts lol. I just wanted her to get mad.
The ending is sweet and to be honest I didn't see it coming.
I don't want to say too much because I don't want to ruin it for anyone - but it was a great, short read.

Entangled Moments:

Brought to you by OBS reviewer Andra

entangled-moments-moments-in-time-dori-lavelleEntangled Moments from the author, Dori Lavelle is the first book in the Moments in Time series. This novella focuses on the life of Carlene Adams. Carlene is hiding out from life as she does not feel she deserves any better as a result of a deadly mistake made 4 years previously. An accident disrupted the future she’d hoped for by taking the life of the man she’d planned to spend forever with. She has committed herself to paying penance for the rest of her life to make up for the one mistake.

While visiting a local church to light a candle for her deceased fiancé, she meets Nick. They go for coffee and shortly thereafter, kiss. This evokes change in Carlene’s whole outlook…maybe life can go on after Chris? From that time on, Carlene begins to reclaim her life.

As the story is short, change is swift. Carlene cannot stop thinking about Nick. At her new job, Carlene flourishes and predictably, runs into Nick again. The sparks are there but timing is not right….Nick is picking out an engagement ring with his fiancé.

Without going into further detail (don’t want to spoil the story after all), I found the story fast paced. In then end (which came MUCH too swiftly), I was invested in Carlene’s life. I was left with the desire to read the next book so that I can see how (or if?) the relationship between Carlene and Nick will play out now that the “big” secret was revealed.

I enjoyed the story and would recommend it should you need a short, engaging read. Though….have the second book on hand….as I would have liked.

Rekindled Moments:

Wow…..

I just finished Dori Lavelle’s series, Moments in Time that consists of three individual novellas, Entangled Moments, Rekindled Moments and Bittersweet Moments.

Dori Levelle is a master of suspense foreshadowing mysterious circumstances surrounding her well-developed characters creating questions, until the reader is swept up in finding the answers. Although, perhaps 5% sexual explicit, these read more like romance or new adult genre that I would not consider erotica.

Dori delves into personal issues of depression brought on by guilt as a direct result of some very common social issues of adoption, manic depression, and alcoholism…Carlene has a secret that has her living in obscurity until she meets Nick a handsome stranger, who turns out to be a dashing debonair millionaire who brings her out of her shell but there lives are already connected…read to find out how…in Entangled Moments…
