The Right Move by Liz Tomforde

Well, I took a step away from my beloved hockey romance books to try out a basketball romance. It was definitely way better than I thought it would be.

We have Ryan who is the newest captain for the Devil’s, Chicago’s NBA team. Ryan does not like to mix parts of his life, but when his sister asks him to let her best friend, Indy, move in with him for a little bit, he knows he can’t say no. Ryan isn’t a big fan of having a roommate, but he would do anything for his sister, but he want’s to keep Indy at arms length, and he wants to do whatever he can to help her move out as soon as possible. The Devil’s General Manager lets Ryan know his disapproval of promotion to captain because everyone sees Ryan as an unapproachable lone wolf with no work-life balance. Suddenly, an idea pops into Ryan’s head and he tells his manager that he has a girlfriend. That girlfriend just so happens to be his new roommate, Indy. Indy and Ryan strike up a deal that she will help him with his image so his manager doesn’t continue to regret having him as captain, and Ryan will help by being in a wedding coming up that her ex-boyfriend will be in as well. They form a good friendship, and Ryan starts to not mind all her colorful intrusions in the apartment. They both help each other through the reasons why they think they couldn’t be good together and its just over all super cute. Ryan helps keep her from thinking about herself the way that her POS ex made her feel. Indy shows Ryan that someone can love him and love him for him.

I really liked watching their relationship build throughout the whole book. There was a lot of character growth that occurred, and I feel like this book was really good in showing how relationships can grow into something you didn’t really expect in a way that you wouldn’t notice until you’re fully head over heels crazy for the other person. I really liked watching how Ryan would make comments about her friends, or even her ex, and make it obvious that they/he were very wrong. I also love how Indy helped change Ryan in a subtle way that got him interacting with his teammates more.

I definitely plan on reading more from Liz Tomforde, and I plan on reading the rest of the series. I gave this book a 5/5 stars.
