Blurb from Goodreads:
Didi Monroe’s waited her whole life for the type of romance you see in the movies, so when Hollywood heartthrob Zac Ridgemont sweeps her off her feet, Didi believes she might finally have met the one.
While Zac’s away filming for the summer, Didi begins her internship at a military hospital in California. There, she meets wounded Marine Noel Walker.
Frustrated on the outside and broken on the inside, Walker’s a pain-in-the-ass patient who refuses all help.
Yet Didi can’t help but be drawn to him, and though he’s strictly out of bounds it soon becomes impossible to ignore the sparks flying between them.
As the attraction simmers into dangerous territory, Didi finds herself falling hard for a man she knows is going to break her heart. Because Walker doesn’t believe in love or happy ever afters. So what possible future can there be?
Then tragedy hits, shattering both their worlds, and Didi is forced to choose between fighting for love or merely falling for the illusion of it.

Didi Monroe is a romantic so when Hollywood superstar Zac Ridgemont takes an interest in her she keeps seeing him even though the last thing she wants is to be a booty call and Zac isn't looking for anything more.
Didi starts an internship at a military hospital as part of her degree. There she meets Noel Walker, a grumpy young Lieutenant who is suffering from guilt and blindness. Despite Walker's coldness, Didi finds herself drawn to him even though she's meant to keep a distance from the patients.
Didi falls for Walker but can they be together when he doesn't believe in happy endings?
This is One Moment was an intriguing, emotional read.
Didi was a good protagonist - she was likeable, relatable and caring.
Walker is not your typical romantic lead - he was broken and his faults were very believable given what he'd been through.
The plot was good and held my interest but there were some things I saw coming and I wasn't gripped. I liked the writing style and it was easy to follow.
Overall this was an enjoyable read.
