In The Moment: Part Four by Rachael Orman

In The Moment: Part Four by Rachael Orman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

And here I thought the cliffhanger ending from Part Three was intense. I will say that while Ace’s reaction did NOT surprise me in the least, I was quite shocked by Adam’s behavior. But, I’m getting ahead of myself here. In the Moment: Part Four continues on from Part Three and we find Ace reeling from Alicia kicking the two of them out. What do two testosterone-fueled men do when the woman in their lives shows them the road? They engage in some seriously hot M/M sex. Adam has come to realize that Ace sees their sexual encounters as a way to reaffirm their connection and he is more than willing to give that to Ace… or should I say, take it from Ace. I’ve gotta hand it to Ms. Orman, even after four installments, she is still keeping the sexual encounters HAWT!

When Alicia dropped her bomb on Adam about her past – what she endured at the hands of her father – and that he seems to have found her, I was just as taken aback as he was. I knew from the previous installments that Alicia had a stalker, but I never imagined it to be her father or the level of abuse she suffered. I was glad to get to see Adam step up and be there for Alicia. That it led to yet another scorching ménage scene with Adam taking point… um, yeah! Whew! As Ace is still dealing with the fallout from the video of him and Adam together, Alicia and Adam’s relationship is given a chance to strengthen as they spend more time together. And this is why I was so surprised at the hostility he showed her at the end of this installment.

I will admit that I find myself flip-flopping on my feelings toward Ace. While I like his character, he comes off a bit whiny at times and has a tendency to get his panties in a twist. Yeah, I know, it’s hard to imagine saying that about an alpha male biker. But then I reconsider and think that maybe, just maybe, he lets Adam and Alicia see his turmoil because he sees them as his “safe place” and trusts them enough that he doesn’t have to maintain his macho biker image around them all the time. So with only one more installment left and the MAJOR cliffhanger Part Four left me with, I guess I have to reserve my final opinion of Ace until I get to read In the Moment: Part Five.
