From This Moment by Melanie Harlow
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publishing Date: October 10th, 2017
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.

This was a must read for me as soon as I saw the blurb, but I was wrong this was so much more. I had to read this without any distractions from start to finish. I will say get your tissues handy before you start to read.
This book started with a slightly different premise, Hannah a widow with her young daughter Abby still trying to recover from her husband dying from a heart attack in his thirties while jogging. Some time has passed and she is working and trying to keep brave face on. Then Wes her dead husband’s identical twin comes home to take over his father’s practice.
When Hannah first starts to feel desire for Wes she puts it down to missing Drew and that her body is confused. Wes on the other hand has always loved Hannah, when he first met her he was too shy to say anything, and after weeks trying get courage up. Drew met her once and swept her of feet. Drew was always the outgoing twin.
We watch them proceeding with caution but before long they enjoy spending time together. Hannah begins to realise that she loves Wes. He was a perfect man for her and even liked it a little rougher in the bedroom. I really loved his character he was the perfect man always putting Hannah and Abby first.
There is a lot of raw emotions in this book with a family trying to cope after a great loss that effects them all. I was emotionally raw after reading this gripping but emotionally draining romance. I loved it all even if I was blubbering mess. Melanie Harlow has outdone herself with this book.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
