Sienna Murphy never does anything without a plan. And so far her plans have been working. Right after college, she got a prestigious job and gained the stability she'd always craved-until work takes her to the sun-drenched shores of Oahu and places her in the path of sexy surfer Luke Everett. For the first time, she lets her heart take control. Drawn to his carefree charm, she makes a spontaneous and very un-Sienna-like decision to drop everything and stay in Hawaii for two more weeks.

Luke lives fast and wild. When he meets Sienna, he's convinced that some no-strings-attached fun is just what she needs. As their nights quickly turn from playful to passionate, Luke can't deny the deep connection he feels. But there's a reason Luke doesn't do long-term. He can't promise Sienna forever, when the enormity of his past has shown him just how fragile the future can be . . .

Poignant, insightful, and utterly beautiful. I fell deeply in love with this book as is usually the case when I read anything by J.A. Redmerski. This book strikes a chord as it opens the readers eyes to how sometimes we allow ourselves to live completing mundane task after mundane task only to look back and wonder have I actually lived? I love J.A. Redmerski’s writing style and somehow you always walk away with a lesson. This story is heart wrenching and inspiring. It makes you want to live a life filled with all the things that make you happy and free. Would you rather a happy and fulfilling somewhat minimalist lifestyle or would you rather have full pockets and things? Sienna Murphy has lived without really understanding what it means to live. After securing a high paying job after college she is assigned work in Hawaii. She is only meant to spend a couple of days there, but when things go awry Sienna runs off with seemingly reckless abandon desperately seeking a place to clear her mind. As Sienna carefully considers her life and the direction it’s taken, her moment of solitude is interrupted by Luke Everett. Luke knows what it means to live life on the edge. He knows how fragile life is yet when he meets Sienna he can’t help but feel a glimmer of hope. He takes a chance and talks to her. When Sienna and Luke meet their connection is almost instantaneous and though their interaction is brief it leaves a lasting impression. Luke words resonate loudly causing her to consider meeting him again. From the moment she meets Luke Everett she’s curious to see life the way he does. She wants nothing more than to get to know him, but she knows trusting him is a risk, one that she is afraid will leave her with a broken heart. Luke, equally afraid, takes a chance on her and she willing steps out of her comfort zone plunging headfirst into his world. Although she knows their time together is limited, Sienna takes a leap. She extends her vacation and decides spending a full two weeks exploring Hawaii as his guest and learning more about him is exactly what she needs. As much as Sienna and Luke would like to forget the world around them and just enjoy their time together they both know their realities and that the clock is ticking. Will they find a way or will they walk away simply learning some very valuable lessons from one another? Written with passion and candor, The Moment of Letting Go displays vulnerability, love and life in an exquisite way. It will leave you absolutely spellbound. Highly recommended for New Adult and Contemporary Romance fans alike. This is the perfect summer read!

**Received an arc copy from Netgalley for an honest review** In this story, we follow Sienna who is consumed by her job and nothing goes to Hawaii to plan a wedding. What she doesn’t expect is to meet Luke, someone who does what he wants when he wants and lives life freely. They find that they are drawn to one another but as they get closer, it makes them wonder if it’s because they are meant to have a future or because they can’t let go of the past. The book is a little slow at the beginning as we get to see Sienna and Luke meet and begin their love affair. Luke tries to show her that there is more to life than just making money while Sienna shows Luke that there is something worth being happy about. On the surface, they are perfect for one another because they are able to laugh, have fun, and pull off that whole ying to the yang thing. But as the story progresses, you start to wonder if there is something more to the relationship and if they are in it for the right reasons. Both of them are experiencing something new and exciting about their relationship but is it the excitement that is keeping them interested or is there something deeper? This book is the perfect kind of self-help book. It constantly sparks inspiration because everyone can relate to Luke or Sienna in some kind of way. I am not one who likes reading those inspirational books talking about spirituality and all that, but after reading this book, I was inspired to follow my dreams and not give up on them no matter how bleak it looks. One good quote (out of the many that this book had) that I pulled away from this story was on page172-173. It reads: I think a lot of people who have debilitating fears need more than a therapist telling them why they’re afraid, a friend telling them not to be afraid, and a family telling them it’s ok to be afraid. You need someone who understands the fear who makes it their priority to help you overcome it because they genuinely want to and not just for a paycheck, and someone who approaches it in a way that comes from the heart instead of a list of stereotypical responses. I like it because it talks about how a lot of times we let the fear control us and dictate to us how we react in situations and how the people around us try and help but usually don’t. The quote comes from Luke to Sienna and I think that it speaks to a lot of people that the best way to get over a fear is to have someone with you who understands it and helps you conquer it together. The only thing that I wish would have been better was the ending. It felt like Redmerski rushed a little bit through it as she tried to get to the end point .We get the moment that changed gears for the story, but there wasn’t much of a downfall following it.
