It's no secret that I loved Little Things, so I was really looking forward to reading Little Moments, and Madison definitely did not disappoint. This book was absolutely amazing. It brought out so many emotions, which is a must for me in a book. It was both heartbreaking and heartwarming, and made me laugh and cry. I found myself smiling so many times. I just loved it. Little Moments is the story of Melanie, who we met in Little Things, and Roman. Over the course of 10 years, several moments lead Melanie and Roman across each other's paths. These moments make a major impact on Roman, and he can't get Melanie out of his head. Years later, Melanie sees Roman and knows he looks familiar, but can't quite place why. Then tragedy strikes and realization dawns on Melanie as to who Roman is. Now she is in a position to help Roman and be there for him, but will he let her in? Roman has been smitten with Melanie since the first time he laid eyes on her, but due to circumstances beyond his control, he now only wants to push her away when she's finally around him constantly. He doesn't see himself as a man worthy of her, and tries to push down the attraction and pull that he has always felt towards her. No matter how hard Roman tries to push Melanie away, she pushes right back. Add in an aunt who only wants the best for Roman, and his walls slowly begin to crumble. When he realizes that Melanie sees him for who he is, despite his current circumstances, he finally allows her into his life and shares his tragic past with her. He realizes that he doesn't have to be strong all the time, and Melanie is more than willing to be there for him to lean on. Little Moments is a story of healing, self-discovery, friendship, and love. It's absolutely amazing, and I highly recommend.

I absolutely loved this story. I was so caught up in the beginning that I was crying before the end of the third chapter. I was so sucked in and attached to Roman that his life experiences affected my in such I way that I was taken off guard. It's not often that I get that emotional at the beginning of a book. It takes true talent on the author's behave to evoke. Have you ever thought about how the one person you were meant to spend your life with comes into your life. Sometimes fate has to intervene more than once for you to realize your destiny. Sometimes the circumstances aren't the best. but love can conquer all. This story gives you hope. Even after everything that Roman has been through, he has been able to find his soul mate in Melanie. After all the life altering events, he knows that there is someone there that will support him every step of the way. I ended this book with a contented sigh and a smile on my face. This author has become one of my automatic one-click authors. I look forward to reading more in this series. This book is written in alternating POV and does not contain a cliffhanger.

Madison Street has done it again, given me a story that not only connected me from page 4, but connected to my heart. I was taken back to the first book in the Second Chances series Little Things. I was already connected to the characters from that first book and love how we got to revisit them in this book. As I said before she had on page page for in my Kindle crying my heart out for the boy and his major life change. I loved Ramon from the beginning, his heart his honor and his personality. Madison brought him to life and made him the key to everything in this book. As you read yes you get that we are reading a book about Melanie as you read along you will notice that the focus really isn't on her but the impact she has on Ramon's life. How she brings him the happiness he deserves. Yes, the book is mainly from her POV but I believe that she was the catalyst for his HEA not the other way around. That is what I love about Madison' writing. She gives her heart and soul to her characters, Melanie and Ramon are her heart on the page. Melanie had some heartbreak in this book and in the first book but ladies believe me when I tell you that Madison has made up for it. Melanie's personality shine in this book and if you read the first one you will know that she is an exceptional friend and has a huge heart. She deserves what Ramon can give her and Ramon is deserving of her. A romance that leaves you wanting more, leave you with a light heart. Their story will bring a smile to your face as the tears roll down, your heart filled to capacity and fulfilled at the completeness of their story and love.
