One single moment changes everything
Vanished foreverThat was me
A beautiful life gone in a flashBut he was there
My savior. My rock.He was just a stranger
Won’t forgetAnd like everything else, he just disappeared
He has to know that he saved meHe has to know that in that one fleeting moment, he was all I could see

Review by Lynda
“Life is a series of moments. Moments that pass you by— sometimes without recognition. We let moments define us and other we let them destroy us. Those moments can be small, or they can be momentous. They can introduce love, belief, and strength, and they can take away passion, self-worth, and happiness. Every piece of our lives is made up of moments.”
Opening a story with such thought provoking words points to the story being deep with many layers. And that is certainly what Bella Jewel has delivered with Fleeting moments.
My heart breaks for Lucy, the traumas she suffered on that day are beyond anything most people would ever know. Lacking support in the right way doesn’t help her move past or find closure on what happened. She is in all sense alone. Thus thrusting her into a new world in her quest to prove she’s hot crazy.
“I feel so alone, so helpless, and so damned afraid. I want comfort, but I can’t find it. I want to be the girl I was before, but she’s gone. I don’t honestly know how I’ll get through this.”
Lucy’s inability to stay away from a situation that doesn’t involve her irritates me a little. But it’s all part and parcel of her mentality after the incident. And the development of the entire story.
Heath is a mystery. A hot intense and sweet mystery. What is he involved in. The second Heath sits down you know he’s going to be one of those characters that just draws you in. I’d love to know exactly who he works for.
Now Gerard, the man needs a spine when it comes to his sister and a swift kick up the arse for not supporting Lucy the way he should have. I liked him at the start and totally understood the situation until he became his sisters puppet. He does redeem himself and honestly would love a story for him.
As for the story line. I was hooked from the beginning. The depth and layers of the story were unique and intriguing. It had me sitting on the edge of my seat wanting to scream “wtf are you doing” and “seriously no not again”.
I disappeared into the pages of the story effortlessly, the words flow so smoothly with the relatively fast paced story you don’t realise your at then end until there’s no more words. Bella has definitely created another phenomenal story that long terms fans and new fans are going to fall in love with.
