From This Moment by Melanie Harlow

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

There is freedom waiting for you, on the breezes of the sky. And you ask, “What if I fall?” Oh but my darling, “What if you fly?”
~Erin Hanson

Have you ever read a book that has moved you so much that your heart and soul are still stuck in the story? I KNEW From This Moment by Melanie Harlow wouldn’t have to steal my heart; I’ll willingly surrender it along with my soul. Oh did I surrender everything as these heart-hitting words held me so hard!!! From the moment I began From This Moment, my heart was stripped bare—both SHATTERING and SOARING—as this story held my heart in its hands.

Witty. Strong. Beautiful. Broken. Beautiful Hannah was dealt one of life’s toughest blows. Now a widow with a young daughter, she must go on and cling to the sliver of hope that she will heal. She never expected a constant reminder to crash into her like a hurricane: the identical twin of her late husband.

I knew it wasn’t me she was seeing. No matter how much I wished it was.

Gorgeous. Caring. Funny. Sweet. Sexy. Wes has returned to his hometown to help his family but did not expect his twin brother’s late wife to uncover feelings buried along time ago. 

I wanted to go back and do it all over. Everything. From the very beginning. I wanted to make her mine.


Hannah and Wes can’t fight the force of fate that connects them, as if they were soul mates. I MELTED from the MAGIC of this couple. I felt their UNDENIABLE CHEMISTRY and CONNECTION. I felt their SPARK too. Together, this hero and heroine were the sun amid the storm.

”Christ, Hannah.” His voice broke. “You’re killing me.”

And you’re bringing me back to life.

These words?!? Their beauty bled through me, straight to the heart and soul. The passion, poignancy, heartbreak, and hope—I felt them all! I FELT every word. I FELT EVERYTHING!!!

”Say you love me. Say we still have a chance.”

Where there is darkness, there is light. Where there is heartbreak, there is hope. Where there is hope, there is healing. 

”Love is a risk…but it’s always a risk worth taking.”

I’m still MESMERIZED—so UNEQUIVOCALLY MOVED—by Melanie Harlow’s words in From This Moment, a story that STRUCK MY SOUL. A story that made me melt…made me break…made me think…MADE ME FEEL. From This Moment made my HEART BLEED and my SOUL SOAR. From This Moment is not simply a romance; it’s a story about heartbreak, hope, and happiness. It’s a story about LIFE AND LIVING. It’s about overcoming tragedy…taking that leap of faith…living for the moment…living life now. From This Moment makes every moment count, and oh did this STUNNING STORY mean the world!!!

Oh did I FALL HARD for From This Moment, another top 2017 read from Melanie Harlow because this romance made me FEEL the whole time reading. My heart and soul were intertwined in this book from beginning to end. From This Moment is passion meets poetry, and I was WOWED by its wondrous words!!! This book is so HEARTBREAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL!!! This book BLEW ME AWAY!!! From This Moment is heart-pounding, passionate, and poignant, a beautiful book of love, loss, and life that will hold your heart forever. I. CAN’T. STOP. FEELING. THIS. ROMANCE!!!

We were always headed for this moment.

Another 6-star sensation from the incredible heartfelt-word magician, Harlow!!!

It was like seeing a ghost.

When my late husband’s twin brother moves back to our small town, I want to avoid him. Everything about Wes reminds me of the man I lost and the life we’d planned together, and after eighteen long months struggling just to get out of bed, I’m finally doing okay. I have a new job, an amazing support group, and a beautiful five-year-old daughter to parent. I don’t want to go backward.

But I’m drawn to him, too. He understands my grief and anger and guilt like no one else—and I understand his. Before long, that understanding becomes desire, and that desire becomes uncontrollable.

He says he doesn’t care what people think, and love can never be wrong. But life has taught me its cruelest lesson–love doesn’t always win.

If only my heart would believe it.
