Moment of Silence Synopsis:

 Growing up, Jason Stern led a charmed life complete with devoted sisters, a father who was one of Brooklyn’s most respected rabbis, and a mother who made the world’s best babka. He headed to NYU ready for anything—except falling for the wrong guy, coming out, and getting disowned by his once-loving family. In spite of that, Jason managed to graduate with honors. He’s got friends who treat him like family, and he’s proudly running the largest LGBTQ teen shelter in Manhattan. Life is good, but he’s still falling for the wrong men. 

When charming, sexy Quinn Fitzpatrick begins work at the shelter, Jason falls hard and fast. Quinn is tall, blond, funny—damn near perfect. Only if Quinn’s gay, even he doesn’t seem to know it. If he does, he’s not telling anyone. And he’s about one ceremony away from becoming a Catholic priest.

 Long hours of work turn to long nights of talking and laughter, and Jason dares to hope this time he’s falling for the right guy. But Quinn’s got a past to deal with and major decisions to make about his future. When Quinn leaves for a silent retreat, Jason knows the silence may change everything.

 Read the first three books for .99:


This book was different than the other books in this series. I really didn’t know what to expect. I totally loved the first 3 books in this series!
I had no clue they even existed until I signed up for this blog tour. You don’t need to read the other books in this series. You won’t feel lost if you start with this book first then decide to read the other books.

Ok… So… I liked this book BUT I wasn’t in love with it. The beginning was really slow for me. Nothing really big happened to grab my attention. I found myself struggling a little bit.
I liked Jason and Quinn. There just seemed to be something missing for me. I wish maybe there was a little more drama? A little more fight between Quinn & Jason? It just seemed like Jason was always taking what Quinn gave him because of Quinn situation.
Which I felt Quinn should have know which way he was going to go pretty late into his relationship with Jason.
I just felt bad for Jason. And I didn’t think it was fair that Quinn made Jason wait.

They both had things to work through. Jason with his family and Quinn with his priesthood.
The parts that loved was how much they showed each other they loved each other. I loved how Quinn didn’t hesitate to show Jason just how much you loved him.

This was a nice read. I can’t wait until the next book in this series comes out!
