    One thought on “Moment of Clarity”

    1. This is the final novella in the Moments in Time series, which I still hold should have been published as one longer novel. Moment of Clarity is an easy, somewhat steamy read. Stivali's writing is polished and fairly engaging.Collin and Tanner get their HEA (or at least strong HFN), but not without buckets of (mostly unnecessary) angst. Look, life sometimes flips you the finger. I get that. But what befalls Collin and Tanner is a veritable shitstorm of homophobia and hysteria. Collin reconnects [...]

    2. This began well but then all hell broke loose."Good." I leaned forward, kissing his new, his chest. "Because I believe I owe you a cargasm."Collin and Tanner come back from an "idyllic" summer in Fire Island. When they reach their dorm, they get the news there was a problem in a room that messed up the electricity system and that repairs could take weeks. So they seek a place to sleep. Till then, it's ok. Just remember it, I actually liked the book.BUTSean, Collin's brother, is getting a divorce [...]

    3. Final de la historia de Collin y Tanner, pero no el final de la serie. Aunque la autora se repite en algunos patrones, y creo que el sexo a veces es demasiado protagonista, sigue estando bien escrito, es entretenido, y la pareja es adorable.Es una serie perfecta para pasar un rato agradable, sin muchas complicaciones, pero sin tener que entornar los ojos cada dos por tres.Me ha gustado.

    4. *2.5 stars* Warning -- I've tried to stay away from it, but there could be spoilers in this review.After enjoying the first two books in this series (I gave them both 4.25 stars), the final book of the trilogy was a major disappointment to me. Sorry, this review is going to be of the venting/ranting type I guess my main frustration with this book was that all of the tension/conflict felt manufactured and the secondary characters were just not believable to me. A few examples:- Laura (Collin's si [...]

    5. Trepidation:a feeling of fear or agitation about something that may happen.I'll admit to a bit of trepidation regarding this third installment of the Moments In Time series. I adored the first book. Loving Collin's first foray into a relationship with *gasp* his roommate, Tanner, a bisexual. The Gay hate from his family when his mother learned was rough, but not as rough as the lack of communication in book two which almost broke Collin and Tanner up for good. Still, reading the blurb on book th [...]

    6. 3.5 StarsMoment of Clarity was a decent conclusion to Tanner and Collin's story. They start a new school year and Collin is trying to navigate school and family and finally having Tanner to himself again. Except that not everyone at school is thrilled to have a gay couple around.So there are challenges and Collin is reconnecting with his brother Sean and some other fucked up stuff happens. You know, life. And Wendy is around just a bit too much and is making like she wants to take Tanner away fr [...]

    7. Loved this series! Yes, this one had some over the top drama, but I still loved it! And I'm glad Collin and Tanner got their happily ever after :)

    8. Good lord, the angst. The ANGST! And so much of it is unnecessary as hell. The third book in the Moments In Time series finally brings a HEA for Collin and Tanner - or at least a strong HFN. However, the way to get there was hard. In many ways. And not all of them pleasant. Back at college, Collin and Tanner are not only faced with a homophobia and angst to the max, but they also need to find a place to live since their dorm was flooded. After reconnecting with his brother Sean, Collin can stay [...]

    9. 5++ Stars*copy provided by author/publisher via Pride Promotions in exchange for an honest review*I wish I could give this more than 5 stars! This was an amazing end to Tanner and Collin's story. I'm so sad to say goodbye, but I know Karen is writing a few more books with some of the secondary characters, so hopefully we'll get future updates on Tanner and Collin. Karen wove an angst filled, heartbreaking, yet beautiful and loving story, from the first page of "Moment of Impact" until the last p [...]

    10. She's only gone and bloody done it again! Moment of Clarity is the final (although I'm hoping for more) instalment of Karen's brilliant Moment of Impact series. Yet again I was blessed with a preview and although I'm desperate to give spoilers (mainly because I want to talk to someone about it) I won't.All I will say is that it's rare for a book to immerse you in a cocoon a love, hate, passion and prejudice, to leave you exhausted and elated in only just over 100 pages but that's exactly what Ka [...]

    11. REVIEW @Scattered Thoughts and Rogue WordsIn general I’m not a huge fan of YA and NA books but this series is really well done. After reading Moment of Clarity the last one in the series, I can say it was totally worth my time and I’m happy to have discovered Karen’s work.The book starts where Moment of Truth ended. After spending the summer together on the Fire Island, Collin and Tanner are back to college just to find out their room not available due to some flooding. Spending weeks in t [...]

    12. (Spoilers- be forewarned.)Oh! The Drama! For such a short book, this is chock full of angst and drama.So we left our boys in the gym, temporarily homeless after a flood put their dorm room off limits for repairs. This made them sad and horny.They get together with Sean, and as he leaves the house to them for a bit of alone time, the estranged wife surprises them and shouts horrible things at them. This leaves them sad and horny.But – that’s not enough, she uses this information – Sean’s [...]

    13. Collin and Tanner return to college after a summer spent on Fire Island working, vacationing and facing some fears. But there are more hurdles they will have to jump before they can have their happy ever after. There was a fire in the dorms so everyone is forced into close quarters in the school gym. And then once they finally get the safe, secure, privacy of their dorm room back Collin thinks it will be smooth sailing from there. Wrong again.Another one of their “friends” finds out the trut [...]

    14. A Joyfully Jay review. 3.5 starsI had become fully invested in Collin and Tanner’s story and was looking forward to this one. After spending their summer together and taking their relationship to another level, everything is looking good for Collin and Tanner. That is until they return to school. For a novella, there is a tremendous amount going on here and so much comes down on these guys one thing after the other. Collin’s brother reaches out to make amends, but that quickly blows up, as w [...]

    15. I just wanted to scratch Wendy's eyes out in this book. I mean, who does that? Why was everyone so chill about this stuff? Clearly my friends and I were just a *little* bit more immature when we were in college because none of that would have gone down that way. The first three books in this series were engaging - I read them quickly and back to back, so I liked them well enough. But it almost seems like this story was a caricature in some ways. The bad guys were so Dr. Evilish bad. And the good [...]

    16. It's starting to really annoy me how most of the women side characters in this series are despicable people.

    17. Well now, book 3 continues with Collin and Tanner heading back to college after finishing up their summer jobs on Fire Island. Upon return they find themselves homeless due to an accident in their dorm which set off the sprinkling system causing water damage throughout their floor. Extensive renovations cause them to seek shelter elsewhere and guess where? Oh joy oh joy, Wendy's dorm room. So needless to say there is more drama both in school and also unnecessary drama involving Collin's family [...]

    18. 4 'Laura and Wendy did my head in but so glad Colin and Tanner finally got a solid HFN at any rate' stars.

    19. 2.5 stars. The full review can be found at The Novel Approach Note: This is the final installment of a three novella arc, and as such is full of major spoilers for the first two books. Definitely not recommended to read out of order. In this last chapter of Collin and Tanner’s story, the boys return from their angst-ridden summer on Fire Island. They have spent some time at Tanner’s mom’s place and haven’t been alone for a week! The n they get to their college and discover that they will [...]

At the same time, the paperback Moments in Time that contains all three novellas in the series has also been published!Review by: multitaskingmommaMy Rating: 4.5 of 5 StarsThis is the third and last installment to the Moments in Time series of novellas and I [...]

    21. 2.5 stars This is going to be a very hard review to write. I wasn't enjoying this book as much as the first two, but figured I would round up to 3 star. By book 3 in a series I guess I expect the couple to be more established, they were still rehashing the same insecurities and issues as book 1! And then Collin tried to pull some bullshit woe-is-me martyr crap that is honestly so immature and pathetic that I wanted to throw him off a fucking ledge soooo you could say that dimmed my enjoyment a b [...]

    22. I really enjoyed this series. These two worked their way into my heart. They started out so clueless and have slowly figured things out as they go along. Through all the hardships and heartaches, they continue to be there for each other, and their love grows. I love their youth, inexperience and excitement in life.This installment is more of them having to prove to the world how real their feelings are and endure more abuse. They're both such great guys, my heart hurt for them during this journe [...]

    23. Blog Post: gaymediareviews.weebly/bloMoment Of Clarity-Moment In Time Series-Book 3 by Karen Stivali! It is recommended to read the series in order! When Collin and Tanner spent summer together on Fire Island, it was amazing and they got really close. Now they're back in their uptight college town and the challenges they once faced are back full force. Collins brother Sean came to their rescue when they most needed it but when word got out about their relationship is when things got very messy w [...]

    24. This is a book three of a series and you do have to read all books in order as they follow a sequence of Collin and Tanner’s romance. But you are in luck through May 5 and 13th both books are on sale for only 99 cents. I also suggest buying the paperback which contains all three books in one!I enjoyed this story as much as I did the last two. The moments in Time series is a very sweet love story of two men finding each other and struggling through college with their sexuality. It is a coming o [...]

    25. Surprising Conclusion First things first: Though awfully stylized (please, who looks like that in real life?), at least we get both Tanner (on the left?) and Collin (on the right?) on the same cover at last. Second thing: If you are ready for a serious roller-coaster ride of unlikely happenstances, crummy people, wonderful people, and complete and total angst on the part of two college seniors who desperately want to be with each other forever, this book will do it for you.Told by Collin, this p [...]

    26. This third and final installment in the Moments in Time series starts off with Tanner and Collin returning back to school from their summer together. I thoroughly enjoyed this part of the series as they adjust to life at school again, and the difficulties in being a gay couple in a small town, particularly in a college dorm environment. Collin's point of view is spot on and I really felt a connection to him. His thoughts and actions ring true. It was great to see him reconnecting with his brothe [...]

    27. What can I say other then I am so disappointed right now I loved Collin and Tanner together but after this book and what happens I honestly feel like Collin deserves so much better then Tanner.I think my biggest pet peeve in a book is "beware this is a spoiler" cheating. Especially when it is just shrugged off like no big deal. Unfortunately that happened in this book.Let me say after the first book I never liked Wendy and after what she does with I can't say without a spoiler but its bad and th [...]

    28. Will someone please remind me exactly why it is that it has taken me so long to read this series? *slaps self silly* Never mind, as they say, better late than never.As with the previous books, this one is a continuation from Tanner and Collins time away on Fire Island. They're now back in school and looking forward to some alone time in their dorm room, only to discover that two entire floors have been water damaged and they'll now be sleeping with all the other affected students, in the gym. Th [...]

    29. Great storyI loved all three books. I could not put them down. I highly recommend these books, such great writing. Collin is a guy who is unsure of himself and his part is written so good. I laughed , cried, was worried for their love. And of course turned on by the love scenes. I will be definitely be reading more
