#Review #Giveaway A Moment of Silence by @karenstivali @InkSlingerPR

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 silentretreat, Jason knows the silence may change everything.

Review 5 Stars

Sexy, Low Angst, emotional.

Moment Of Silence is a tale about love and hard choices.  Jason was raised in a loving family so when he falls for a guy he doesn't think twice about letting hos family know. He is completely shocked and broken hearted when he is disowned.  Despite his circumstances he still manages to graduate at the top of his class and build a new life for himself.

Unfortunately Jason has a knack for falling for unobtainable men.  This time it's Quinn a sexy co-worker who can swear in as a priest any day. Jason is not sure of Quinn is straight or not, and with his pending priesthood it seems that Jason has fallen for the one guy that he last the least chance with. Or has he?...

Slowly Jason and Quinn starts to spend more time together. A dinner here... A family gathering there... Everyone around them can see the sparks flying, however Jason doesn't believe it. 

Jealousy is what finally pushes both Jason and Quinn to face their attraction for one another. They are amazingly in love. 

Will Quinn give up becoming a priest? Or is his relationship with Jason temporary?

I couldn't help but fall for Jason. He is a true romantic and has a sensitivity that draws you in.  The novel is written in his POV. I really felt his emotions and wanted him to have his HEA.

Karen Stivali did an excellent job telling the characters stories. I will definitely be exploring some of her other work.
