About this ebook

The series that readers are calling, "touching, funny, sweet and gut-wrenching all mixed together." By USA Today Bestselling Author, Elena Aitken!

She’s sworn off relationships. He’s ready to find ‘the one’. The last thing either of them expected was each other.

As far as Jade Johnson is concerned, the only thing men have ever been good at is holding her back. But when work takes her to the small town of Cedar Springs to cast a hot new show, Jade comes face to face with a man who sets her world on fire and immediately challenges everything she’s ever believed.


Mitch McCormick is finally ready to put his playboy ways behind him and settle down, but the type of women he’s been dating are definitely not the marrying type. Which is exactly why he needs a nice girl. An easy going, sweet, small town girl...


The exact opposite of the feisty, sharp tongued talent agent he can’t get off his mind. Jade challenges him and excites him in a way he's never experienced. But Jade's made it clear that settling down isn't something she wants, not with him—not with anyone.


But when Jade makes a discovery that will turn her life upside down, it’s not only her own heart she needs to protect. Because whether she likes it or not, everything is about to change.

What a conundrum Mitch encounters in Only For a Moment by Elena Aitken as he tries to find the perfect partner to settle down. Shortly after he sees Jade Johnson, he knows he has to meet her. Jade is a city girl and doesn’t seem to be exactly the type of woman he wants for settling down, despite their chemistry and attraction. So Mitch takes local girl Evie, mother of a young boy he’s tutoring, on a date. She’s checks all his boxes except there’s no chemistry. Besides, his mind keeps wandering back to Jade. Mitch wonders if he can convince Jade of his feelings. Jade Johnson was raised to believe that a man will hold her back from achieving her dreams. Yet, while temporarily living in the small town of Cedar Springs, Jade comes face to face with a man who sets her world on fire and immediately challenges her beliefs. Jade is unsure that she can let go of those lifelong beliefs, drilled into her by her mother, and allow herself to follow her heart. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. Ms. Aitken knows how to tell a wonderful story and makes me want to live in Cedar Springs. This was an intriguing and interesting story with very authentic characters. This is the second book in The McCormicks series, but each book is a standalone story. I am looking forward to the next book in this series and highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Only For A Moment is about how two very opposite persons can be together because of love. Jade is definitely not the kind of woman that Mitch is looking for but he can't help being attracted to her. And Jade is not looking for a man. The chemistry between them is explosive and it just makes you want to read on and hope that they will find their HEA. I love a sassy feisty heroine and Jade fulfils all of that. The other brothers also appear in Only For A Moment and I really can't wait to read their story. ** I received a copy of this book from the author. All opinions are my own.

I'm loving this series by Elena Aitken! Jade Johnson has always had a plan and it didn't include men because they were nothing but trouble! That all changes with one steamy night she has with Mitch McCormick. He has changed what she thought she wanted out of life, but he's set on finding himself a nice town girl who is ready to settle down and worth changing his playboy ways for. Jade doesn't fit that requirement because she's not from town and her focus has always been about her career. How can two people who want such different things out of life find their way in this relationship? I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.
