MOVING ON

MOVING ON                                             KATE L. MARY

After a year with her dying aunt, Bette knows what she wants from life.

1. Keep Aunt Missy’s House 
Chris Pressley is the perfect roommate—uptight and damaged and hung up on his ex. And hot. Bette doesn’t date, but she definitely likes looking.
2. Get Her Dream Job 
Chris just needs to get away from the happiest couple on campus: the sweet, shy girl he loves and his former best friend. Watching Bette rock her tattoos and her curves even as she builds her own business is an education. That’s probably why he can’t keep his mind off her…
3. Never Compromise 
Bette isn’t interested in changing for anyone. But the heat rising between her and Chris won’t leave her the same…

MY REVIEW:

     Sometimes when you want it the least it finds you faster and all too unsuspecting.  You can tell yourself no all you want and run even.  Somehow it will always find you again right where you left it in your heart.  Let’s you know all those others you thought you loved were only to prepare you to open you to the real thing right there in front of you and to know that right here right now it is the real thing.
     Imagine how surprised Bette and Chris are when they figure out they have become the most unwilling hostages of the heart.  Yet disguised as a friendship/roommates.  The one the most unaware is Chris because his best friend had taken his ex from under his nose the same way.  No bro code there.  Never once coming to him to explain if for no other reason but out of respect or the bro code.  Even after he knew Chris was angry with him.  Basically Chris’s feelings were hurt and he was very disappointed in his childhood friend.
     So he ends up moving off campus since he lived 2 doors down from his ex-Annie which meant the chance of running into her and Ryan were greater.  What he really couldn’t get out of his head was walking in on his best friend and his ex-having sex.  That this had been going on the whole time he had been dating her is what got him the betrayal of the friend hurt more really.
     When he moves he ends up in the best section of downtown Charleston.  In the Victorian home area where the homes are at least 100 years old.  He moves in with the most unlikely person you could ever see Chris with.  Why?  Well, Bette has a rather large tattoo that starts on her arm and runs along her shoulder and ends on her back.
     She also has several piercings one on her mouth, her hair is a bright red and she enjoys vintage sexy 1950’s clothing.  Oh let’s not forget the red lipstick.  Although he was telling himself he was still in love with Annie and Bette was not his type.  He had to admit she was Sexy as Hell!  She show him around and agrees to have him as a roommate.
     He starts a new job as a waiter and tries to get back into the swing of things at school but all the time trying to avoid Ryan, Annie, and friends.  In the meantime Bette and he start becoming acquainted and start to like each other as people.  He learns that she comes from a very judgmental family and background, mainly her mother, which he unfortunately gets to meet.  He seems to become her defender in many ways after that bad experience in many ways.  In how to give her support in not allowing others to degrade her because of her choices of style of dress, tats, or piercings.  For she is a good person.
     I totally enjoyed this books and the message if instills in how we need to show kindness, tolerance, and love to others.  How we have to have respect for our friendships and respect boundaries and remember betrayal can cut, sometimes forever.  Sometimes “I’m sorry can’t fix everything” if your actions say something else.  This is a book all women should read or any person being bullied into being different.  For it hurts your mind, body, and spirit of who you are too.

I give this 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at: www.1rad-readerreviews.com
