The moment they both believe all hope is lost is the moment something real finally begins.
I have loved Mason Trent for years, but I've only been sleeping with him for one.
None of my friends know about our secret passion. He's in my bed one night and in the arms of someone else the next. And it's tearing me apart.
I've done everything I can think of to make him mine, but the more I cling to him, the harder he pushes me away. I'm spiraling out of control, not sure how much more of this I can take. A girl can only bend so far until she breaks. And when I do, I break completely. I'm talking about one night of bad decisions, all leading to a my-world-will-never-be-the-same kind of moment. A moment where I need Mason more than ever. True to form, though, he's running.
But I intend to go with him this time. I'm willing to leave my money, my family, my friends behind for this one last chance to see if he could ever really love me the way I deserve to be loved. I'm willing to sacrifice forever if it means one real moment with him.

I was a teensy bit reluctant to take on this one, but there was something compelling about the idea of it that made me request. When I started reading it, I can honestly say that I wanted so very much to punch both Penny and Mason. I had this feeling that it might become a do-not-finish, which I never do... but, I kept reading and you know what? Turns out I would have missed out on an amazing journey. So my advice is this: Push through the first few chapters because it gets better. Much better.
While our lovely couple made me punchy at first, as their road trip started and progressed, you started to see the depth of each of them. Their personality and emotions came shining through and they got to see each other at their best and worst. It wasn't one of those really huge road trip kind of stories (mostly camping), but it made me feel the wanderlust for the little things, the simple things. Penny and Mason, while they are opening up on the trip, are still hiding enough of themselves to create problems. They both know that it won't be long before those things surface and threaten their chance of love.
The Moment We Began had all the hope and love you could wish for in a story. While it was deep in romance, it was deeper with everything else connected to the love. And then the connections with other people they come across. It was all very well thought out and put together. I would love to read more of what Sarra Cannon has to offer if she can make me feel so much with just one story.
