(So, in other words people, it's angsty!) ;) Katie and Billy meet when she goes with her new dorm mate to a bar where a band is playing. She's quickly smitten by the older Billy and he notices her right away as well. She's different from his usual girls and he seeks her out. They end up going back to his place and get to know each other a little better. Katie's a virgin (of course) so Billy holds off...for a while or at least until the morning, or almost morning! ;) Good news is that there's a snow storm and they are stuck together for the weekend. I loved how shocked Billy was at the feelings she was evoking in him. He's never acted this way before! Luckily, he acts on those feelings and goes to her college to see her again. And before they know it, they're together as much as they can be. Unfortunately, he is a musician and on the road a lot. They make plans to meet up in New York during Thanksgiving break. Later, she convinces him to come meet her parents and it's everything they both never wanted. But it led to them being closer than ever, however, some not-so-smart thinking leads to them making a huge commitment and then some. This part had a sort-of Reckless vibe from the Thoughtless series. Too bad Billy wasn't as good as Kellan...nope, he's a bad, bad boy. The story pretty much ends with all the drama that causes and with Katie in the dark. I would definitely recommend having the next book ready! It should be noted that this is not your typical romance story. It has a lot of depth and while it's definitely romantic, it's also very real...dealing with some real issues and a gamut of emotions.

    3.5 stars I finished the 3 books and I'm still processing my thoughts and feelings about the overall story. Book 1 is about Billy and Kate - they are young and fell in love fairly quickly. Billy is a musician who has a dream and the ambition to be a rock star. He lives the daily/nightly grind of shows and tours to make a living. Both have a lot of emotional baggage from their childhood. Billy drinks and does drugs while Kate has no self-esteem and doesn't think she is worthy of love.

There is a lot of detail, etc. I liked it but because it was dragging into 2 other books, I wasn't sure if I could continue or stick with it. Overall, an emotional roller coaster of young, co-dependent love.

    DNF @ 37% I was in the mood for an angsty rockstar romance, but sadly this just didn't work for me. I needed to feel a connection to the mcs before the shit hit the fan in order to root for them and understand why they were holding on, but I just didn't. I skimmed to the end because I was curious as to how it'd all play it, and I'm glad I'm done now. I read some spoilers saying there is cheating at the end, so that wasn't all that shocking -- but just the way it all went down bugged me.

    I want to preface this by saying that Rock Star Romances are not my thing. They contain too much predictability - built in angst, cheating, and excessive lifestyle choices (wait a minute...that is TOTALLY my thing, but I digress). A bunch of my Reading Buddies were set to read this and I love a good buddy read (read that as I hate to be left out), so I dove in...and despite what I thought was going to happen, I really enjoyed it. While so many were upset with Billy, I never felt that way. I love I want to preface this by saying that Rock Star Romances are not my thing.

While so many were upset with Billy, I never felt that way. I loved him from the start and that never changed. I saw him as always trying to do the right thing. Yeah, there was the part where he encouraged Katie to take drugs, but I didn't see the same pressure and bullying of her to do it as everyone else did. Katie was so young and naive, but never once did I have a moment where I thought that this chick was TSTL. Her choices and actions were believable for who she was. The drama was not over the top, it was just exactly what was inherent with the lifestyle of a struggling musician and the woman who fell in love with him. I will definitely be back for the next two in this series!

    What a surprise. This is a trilogy that spans over 20 years between Kate and Billy. They both have issues Kate has domineering parents and is always the good daughter, an only child. Billy has anger issues, and drinking and drug problems. Kate wants to please billy so much she doesn't know when to say no. They meet when she's at college and she's 18 and he's 23 years. This is their love story. This book has cheating as a warning for people that may have issues with that. This is a wonderful book What a surprise.

    I have to admit, I struggled with the beginning but I stuck with it. First of all, I was having a love/hate relationship with Billy. And then it was mostly hate! Errrgh! And Kate....snap the fuck out of it! I definitely wanted to slap some sense into her. Positive point....loved Joey! He was the friend everyone should be lucky enough to have in real life. I get that they had screwed up childhoods. But, come on. It definitely gives you a look at the rocker lifestyle and the temptations every step I have to admit, I struggled with the beginning but I stuck with it.

Christa, I hope you rot in hell. But, of course, after that ending, I basically had no choice but to continue the series. Not sure what I'm getting myself into. It was a book that I wanted to get back to even with the angst and my not so great feelings of the main characters.....and I did love the storyline.... thus, the 4 star rating.

    Thanks to my friends for recommending this! I inhaled this angsty, emotional series and recommend it to anyone who wants something a little different (and more 'real', IMO) in their rockstar reading. This series will definitely be on my favorites of 2018 list! Thanks to my friends for recommending this!

    Karen Cimm's debut novel is a heartbreaking tale that you will devour in one sitting and will leave you wanting more. Billy and Kate are well-written, flawed but sympathetic people who you are rooting for but who manage to get in their own way. You simultaneously want to hug and slap them. It's a love story but so much more and you won't want it to end. Karen Cimm's debut novel is a heartbreaking tale that you will devour in one sitting and will leave you wanting more.

    I loved this book! I loved the characters and the story itself. It took me back to being that 18 year old who made life changing decisions that turned her into the person she is today. I laughed, I cried but most of all I enjoyed this book. I cannot wait for the next one!

I hope the author doesn't go the usual route and bring us too much angst in books 2 and 3! Once I started this book, I was completely engrossed! Katie has been brought up trying to be the perfect daughter and not disappointing her cold parents - well her mother mostly as she is purely a dragon!

Katie has been brought up trying to be the perfect daughter and not disappointing her cold parents - well her mother mostly as she is purely a dragon! She gets dragged out for a night and meets Billy. There is an instant connection and the story moves on from there. I loved Billy, he had his demons and could over react but you couldn't deny his love for Katie. Towards the end of the book he slips up and the guilt he feels - he owns it and this is where you know there is more to the story. I need to know how this plays out and I need the second book ASAP because of it!(view spoiler)[He gets oral whilst his wife is in labour - she didn't tell him she was in labour so he wouldn't miss the Grammy's - I know cheating is a trigger for some so thought I would point this out. This is the one and only time he cheats in the book - he is so consumed with guilt that he throws up - but by the end of the book Katie doesn't know so you know this is going to play out in the second. He better not do it again as I will feel this will sour the relationship and personally I wouldn't want to read it. Cheating is cheating but the way it is written you are routing for the couple - wanting to slap Billy but routing for them. (hide spoiler)] Shout out to Joey, Katie's best friend - he is great and what a friend! i would highly recommend this book.

He's been gigging for a few years, living the lifestyle by drinking, drugging and sleeping his way through women. That all changes when he meets college student Katie. Katie is just eighteen, in college, a quiet girl doing what her parents want her to. Attending the college they want for her because they both went there. They aspire her to be a teacher just like them, but that all changes one night when she goes out with her dorm mate. Katie is naïve when it comes to men. She's never been with one and it's all a new experience for her. At times, I feel it may hinder her hindsight as their relationship becomes more serious. Billy has a past that I hope doesn't surface towards Katie. If it does, I will flip out!! He has great potential if he can keep his anger in check. Joey! Oh Joey. He is the best, best friend a girl could ask for. Too bad he swings for the other team, lol! He's a perfect addition to the story! The writing was superb! I never found myself bored and I couldn't put it down! Onto book two, We All Fall Down with a title like that I'm kind of on the edge of my seat because I have a feeling all is going to come tumbling down for Billy and Katie. Reviewed for KFA

I had to reread a little to realise that the author had moved on. The story itself follows Kate and Billy. I loved both of these characters. Kate is young and feels unwanted and unloved by her parents. The way her parents treat her and her reactions to them really annoyed me. I was so angry on her behalf, and yet she didn't seem that bothered to say much about it. Of course, that's because of the way she is. She's just too lovely for her own good. Billy is 23. He is a musician who’s had a difficult life. He too, had a terrible upbringing, which the author doesn't go into too much. He stirs emotions for me; he caused me to feel anger, annoyance, love, but also made me laugh. Together these two ignite all sorts of emotions. Then there is also Joey, who I loved from the start, he is Kate's best friend since child hood , and her support. Together these three really make the story. Overall the book was really good and I did really enjoy it. This isn't a standalone book, their story continues but the author didn't leave the end on a cliff hanger I am pleased to say.

This went beyond a binge read and entered into meaningful and captivating territory after the first page of book one, At This Moment. In this series Ms. Cimms gives her audience an all-encompassing love story where every hug was enveloping and every kiss was soul sealing. The leads in this work had a presence that reached far beyond the pages they occupied and the singular draw they felt toward each other easily translated to this writer's readers. Billy and Kate were full of imperfections, there were times that they both made choices that gave reader's reasons to question their appeal yet despite their lows there were just as many highs and what emerged were two incredible characters that offered so much in their frailty that it ultimately became their biggest strength. Details gave reader's a chance to form complicated opinions and showed the depth of this author's portrayals to their advantage. This couple's relationship was stripped down, and the emotions were raw, real and lingering. Ms. Cimms showed Billy and Kate at their most vulnerable making no attempt to glamorize their bond and in doing so made them accessible to each other and reader's alike. The clarity this author had in expressing her characters miscommunications and misguided need to protect each other was done compassionately and expertly. A standout and memorable secondary cast not only enhanced but contributed significantly to this series. The insight, intimacy and devotion Ms. Cimms had with her portrayals was rare and touching. She guided them through the best and worst of times and stayed true to her characters, never glossing over their flaws and never deserting them in their worst moments even as she elevated them in their best. This was an emotional read with no shortage of heartbreaking moments and full on sobs. If you are looking for a series to invest your time and heart into Karen Cimms' Of Love And Madness series is a must! *Other than the first book in this series the works in this series are not stand alone.*

    I Loved this so much I could not put it down. Rockstar romance with all the angst and raw, gritty aspects of this lifestyle. The storytelling is incredibly captivating. I knew from the first pages that these characters were going to take over my life. Billy and Katie are characters that you root for no matter what. I will not stop until I finish this series. So good.

    Love, Love, Love I loved everything about this book from the cover to the devastatingly powerful storyline. Katie is an angel sent to pull Billy from his private hell. She’s all he needs and along their journey he spirals out of control and makes a bad decision. Such a beautiful story I can’t wait to see what happens next. I recommend this book because of its depth and rich storyline.

But she does a have a beautiful heart, a gentleness and a softness about her that makes you fall in love with her. I literally wanted to be there for Katie. On the other hand, we have Billy, a tortured soul because his early life abuse, breakable because he has a heart of gold, overwhelmed by his creativity and dependent of his addictions. One night they collide an can not come apart since that fateful encounter. We live mostly through their downs, but somehow they manage to find each other again and again. I loved that, even though both of them are immature, they were big enough to recognize when they f*ucked up. This is a book that made me feel almost like a voyeur, I got to feel everything they were feeling, It felt like I was so close to them. We'll have to see how this story develops. Being together immersed in that life may break them apart. Will love be enough? I don't really know. I definitely will wait to read the rest of the series until all the books are out. Good job Karen!

    At This Moment was a wonderful ride through a relationship that has all the odds stacked against it. From the beginning, I fell in love with both Billy and Kate, who are characters with a great deal of depth, each carrying scars from their pasts. I'd like to climb into the book and shake Billy a little bit just to wake him up, though I realize he is probably doing the best he can do, given his upbringing. The author does an excellent job of portraying these characters, their weaknesses and stren At This Moment was a wonderful ride through a relationship that has all the odds stacked against it.

The author does an excellent job of portraying these characters, their weaknesses and strengths, and I was so intrigued by this novel I read it in two days flat. I had meant to drag it out so it would last longer, but found myself unable. This is a well-written novel with a storyline that is easy to fall into. I look forward to reading more of Ms. Cimms work.

    Raw, Gritty, and Real If you like story's that show real characters, who make real mistakes in the difficult journey we call life, if you like story's that don't have a traditional storyline, and story's you get to watch the characters progress as they learn from their mistakes, then you'll love Billy and Katie. Some of my all time favorite books including The Love Me With Lies series by Tarryn Fisher, The True Love Series by M.j. Fields, Carnage Series by Leslie Jones and Thoughtless (book one) b Raw, Gritty, and Real If you like story's that show real characters, who make real mistakes in the difficult journey we call life, if you like story's that don't have a traditional storyline, and story's you get to watch the characters progress as they learn from their mistakes, then you'll love Billy and Katie. Some of my all time favorite books including The Love Me With Lies series by Tarryn Fisher, The True Love Series by M.j. Fields, Carnage Series by Leslie Jones and Thoughtless (book one) by S.C. Stephen are non Traditional books that people either love or hate. At This Moment wasn't the same story line as these, but it did give me the same kind of feels. In fact I'm going to keep this review short and sweet, because I'm impatient to move on to book number two!

    Received from the author for a honest review. 3 1/2-4 stars... At this Moment is a love story that takes us through the first day Kate & Billy meet (Billy in the band- Kate a college Freshman) to the coule years that follow. Even through it may seem like a typical story, you feel invested in their future. You cheer for the good times and hold your breath through the bad. Even though the story doesn't leave you hanging at the end, the author leaves you wanting more of their story. Good thing there Received from the author for a honest review. 3 1/2-4 stars...

    I really enjoyed Billy and Kate's story. Karen Cimms is a remarkable story teller. Billy broke my heart at times - from the glimpses of his horrible childhood and the mistakes he'd made- but I really loved them together and I can't wait to read book 2!
