 A Review by Wendy
 3.5 Was More Than a Moment Stars

There is always something to be said for quirky meets, misunderstood meets, and downright awkward meets. Amy Daws has brought me some of the best. I think I have been spoiled a bit because I still hold Wait With Me near and dear...I mean come on, a Tire Shop!!!!

In One Moment Please we are starting off with a possible mistaken assumption by a doctor.
He has been seeing the same woman in the hospital cafeteria for month typing away and eating his coveted chocolate silk pie. Not only does she look like she doesn't belong there but she is taking slices of pie that should have been his.

On the day Lynsey Jones has completed writing her master's thesis and is finally able to enjoy her slice of pie, the doctor who has been giving her the stink-eye while she was there, starts to come her way. As he stalks over with a determination and focus, Lynsey doesn't understand what his problem is.

Oh, she had noticed him over the weeks she was working in the caf, how could she not. He was the perfect pinup for a hot, dark, brooding doctor in scrubs....and now he was placing his tray down on her table, starting to fork a salad into his grim mouth.

Lynsey strongly asks why he was sitting here and the next thing she knows, this guy starts accusing her of awful motives. Like she could be suffering from a disease where people are looking for attention and sympathy pretending they are sick. Stunned, he continued to say she could be stalking people who are suffering and she has no business being there.

Lynsey couldn't believe what was happening and due to the way this idiot was eyeing her chocolate silk pie, she impulsively shoved the piece into her mouth and then smeared pie on his crotch.

Stomping away Lynsey thought of all the things she should have said to "Dr. Dick".

Lynsey was at a turning point. Her prepaid lease was almost up. She had lived there with her bestie Kate but Kate met the love of her life and was now living with him. She was excited to get on with her life and now that her thesis was complete, her dream of working with children and doing a family clinic was a step closer. She was sure she would be employed in her field and able to move forward.

Her other friend Dean was taking her out to celebrate. At the bar, enjoying her dring named Birds and Bees, Lynsey is happy and enjoying her evening. Dean is funny and charming and normally is a great wingman. But tonight one of Dean's huge clients walks in and Dean's mind switches focus...He wants to get his client's ear. Lynsey is introduced, hellos made and then behind the client stands Dr. Dick...Yup, Lynsey can't believe it.

With Dean busy with the client, Lynsey has to listen to fresh barbs from Dr. Dick. If only he would leave or find someone else to pester. Because this guy seems determined to annoy Lynsey while being the sexiest, long drink of water...The sparks fly, the drinks flow and Dr. Dick says one thing too much and Lynsey is leaving. She tells Dean she is going to Uber it and Dr. Dick decides he will share the car.

You know-how magnets have a pull so strong they click loudly and are hard to pull apart...Well, these two are sparking and bickering and when the Dr. gets out for his house saying something to annoy Lynsey even more... She gets out of the car slamming the door.

Her booze high is not strong but the lust high is...and these two are ready to how that dislike or hate screw can be dynamic. That is how hot their coupling is...things are done, things Lynsey never did...both cut loose and it was outstanding.

The next morning Lynsey has disappeared and Josh, who Lynsey had nicknamed Dr. Dick, had wanted to get her number and maybe see her again. But she was gone. Well, for the best, as Josh didn't do relationships or love or commitments. He had learned his lesson, those things caused pain. Caused distraction and made him make mistakes. He will never allow that again.

Three months later, Lynsey's plans have not fallen into place. That job she thought she would get right away, hasn't happened. Her lease is up and now she probably will have to move back home, something she really does not want to do. Her personal life has been dumb and she is going on one last first date because why not.

Well, that wasn't a great decision because she experienced a freak accident that ended up with her in the emergency room. With Kate by her side, she waits for the doctor to come in and look at her cut finger and twisted ankle.

And opening the door is the one and only sexy, annoying Dr. Dick. Yup, he is the one who is going to take care of her, ask all those private questions and receive the results of the standard tests taken.
Once both of them recover from their first look, Josh is flat, controlled and handles the situation.

He comes in after all of the results are back from Lynsey's blood test and shock of shock, he gets to tell Lynsey she is pregnant. The ultrasound shows exactly when the pregnancy happened within 2 bingo, Dr. Dick and Lynsey are going to be parents. Turns out the emergency condom Lynsey dug out of her purse was expired. OOPS.

This is a tale with many strong moments and also with some that caused a bit of frustration. Lynsey was someone who had a goal and was educated. She was able to see life with or without the father of her child. I liked that. She did have moments where I wanted to shake her because she was walking into a situation she knew would probably not end up the way she wanted.

As for our guy...He could be sweet but it was hard for him as he was extremely damaged by his past. He carried major guilt and this past caused him to shut down and compartmentalize in order to do his job and live his life. He was not the man he once was...and this caused him and Lynsey their complications.

There was lots of humor and sexy times. The anticipation of the little one also was a delight. It took a hot minute for these two to finally have their HEA but when they did, we cheered.

This is a series I have gobbled up and there were a couple of hints for other couples...I cannot wait.
