    Ok

    Ok read but not spectacular. It started well but deflated half way in, the dialogs becoming quite lame and the characters showing their immaturity. I guess that's what you expect from characters this young (18 and 21). But it was a sharp contrast with their initial behavior and mature attitude towards a serious issue such as depression and self-mutilation. A pity.

    Although there is a love story involved in The Right Moves,  I think I consider this more a book about healing than romance.  Abbi is
    suffering from depression brought on by an abusive relationship as well as recovering from self-harming. Blake is still recovering from
    his sisters suicide,  and following their dream of attending Julliard. They meet each other in dance class and are paired together for a
    dance which starts their meeting each other at different places around the city and the healing begins.

    Could not put it down!

    I just stumbled upon this series because another author I enjoy recommended it. I could stop reading this book. Abbi and Blake's story sucked me in and I went on the rollercoaster of emotions with them.

    I am in love with Emma's The Game series, so when I saw she was

    I am in love with Emma's The Game series, so when I saw she was writing Abbi's book I could hardly contain my excitement! We met her briefly in the first book, as she is Maddie's best friend, and your heart couldn't help but break for her, as she was institutionalized, after attempting suicide. Abbi's story is both heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time, and I'm glad Hart was not afraid to dive into such a difficult topic. This book is realistic and shows you the effects depression has on Abbi, as well as her fight to overcome it.

    However, Abbi was fortunate enough to have such amazing people in her life to support her. Ultimately, she was the only one who could pull herself out of the darkness, but her family and friends were there for her every time she felt herself slipping and I'm really proud of Abbi for seeking out help when she needed it. Abbi's love of dance is also what motivated her to get better, as she wants to attend Juilliard. Her passion for dance and the release it brings is so evident in this book and I thought Emma did a brilliant job of giving life to Abbi's dreams.

    "Dance is the one thing that keep me up. It's the one thing I let myself feel; it's the one thing that is truly real to me. It's the only thing that's allowed to get past the wolves and climb my walls."

    When we first meet Abbi in this book, she is in the midst of dying her hair. Abbi wants nothing more to do with the girl she once was because it makes her feel weak. She hates that she let that weakness consume her and she wants nothing more to forget that life. However, forgetting is not the answer. She can't change what happened to her or the person she once was- instead if she hopes to move on, she has to come to terms with everything and go from there. It's not something that will just happen overnight- it will be a step by step, day by day kind of thing until finally she can look back with resolution and understand that she is stronger now because of what happened.

    One of the people will help her take it day by day is Blake. I absolutely loved Blake's character. He has his own demons that haunt him, but he can relate to Abbi in a way not many others can. He is also a dancer, and the two end up paired together to perform a couples dance, which leads them to spend a lot of time together. I think it's important that they became friends first, because Abbi is in no way ready for a relationship. While Abbi is not unfriendly, she does keep herself closed off to others. She is skittish in big groups and populated settings. Blake zones in on her that first day at dance and sees the haunted look that she desperately tries to hide and he recognizes it, as it is not the first time he's seen it.

    Abbi unknowingly shares bits and pieces of herself with Blake, as she takes him to her favorite places in the city. He is very observant of her and recognizes a familiarity in her that makes him want to get to know her and be there for her. It takes Abbi quite a bit of time to trust Blake, as she is afraid of how he makes her feel and what that could potentially mean for her.

    "You have to dance the way you fall in love; effortlessly, unrelentingly, and with everything you have."

    Their passion for dance is what brings them together and offers them both healing and the persistence to move forward. While Abbi and Blake have some amazing sexual tension, this is not an overly steamy book. Instead, it focuses on much deeper issues and I believe Emma paced their relationship beautifully and I don't think it would have been as realistic if she had done it any other way.

    In my opinion, The Right Moves is Emma's most emotional, in depth novel to date. Abbi's journey is not one to be taken lightly and watching her evolve and go after what she wants is truly inspiring and I encourage everyone to pick this book up.

    If you've been following The Game Series, then you'll remember A

    If you've been following The Game Series, then you'll remember Abbi from The Love Game . It's not necessary to read it prior to reading The Right Moves , but it would be beneficial for getting a deeper insight on her past and present state of being.
    Abbi was in an abusive relationship and as much as she knew she needed to get out, she couldn't find the strength within herself to leave. She couldn't deal with the dark and lonely feeling that constantly encased her, so she did the only thing that felt right at the time. She attempted suicide.Fortunately, her friend Maddie found her just in time to save her life.After recovering physically, Abbi stayed in a mental institution and met with a psychiatrist in order to heal mentally and emotionally.
    Finding something to live for in the form of a burning passion for dance, Abbi keeps herself focused solely on ballet. Whenever she gets an inkling of an urge to cut or harm herself, she dances. As soon as she gets in her dance zone, everything else fades away. Her goal to get into Juilliard, the most prestigious dance conservatory in the country, keeps her focused and grounded.
    Abbi's newest dance partner, Blake, also has a passion to dance. His move from London to New York has much to do with dance and his sister. He has dark demons of his own that he needs to come to terms with.The moment he see's Abbi, Blake's immediately enraptured by her dancing.She too feels a chemistry between them that is strange and new, but something worth pursuing.
    When comparing the books in this series, this one is definitely the most emotionally jam-packed story. It tackles some dark, yet very relevant topics. I think Emma Hart did a lovely job of writing Abbi's story and taking on such intense issues.
    Book 1 was very plot driven, the second was a lot more heartfelt and contained a lot of interaction between the two main characters, in this case, there was a lot of inner dialogue that made this story stronger. Having Abbi explore her inner thoughts with the reader intensified her feelings and gave me personally a better understanding of what exactly she was going through.
    I'd recommend this to those looking for more story and depth rather than sex and romance. Don't get me wrong, there is a bit of romance, but no sexy scenes. The focal point of this story is very much the theme of depression. Grab some tissues, because I guarantee you'll shed some tears.

    Emma Hart has done it again, her books are amazing and the right moves is no exception. The right moves is an amazing story.  Abbi has been given a bad hand and is working on getting better, Blake just left home and travelled to New York to achieve his and his sisters dream. This is a most read book and I give it 5 stars and can't wait to read the next one .

    Depression is a serious topic that many people struggle with dai

    Depression is a serious topic that many people struggle with daily. Not everyone is able to pull out of that and find something worth living for, find something worth getting out of bed and dressing for. The is the story of finding hope; when you are in one of your darkest places in life and pulling through and finding something worth living for.
    My heart broke for Abbi and the demons that she was struggling with. She had to fight her depression on a daily basis, even though some days were worse than others. She hates the scars that are on her body and hides them so no one is able to see them. It only reminds her of the pain that she had to endure in the past. Her outlet from it all though is dance. It gives her a reason to live and a hope for the future. A reason to keep moving on which is what everyone really needs. I loved how she would get so lost in the dance and would forget what was going on around her. It truly would take away all the pain. The comfort that it brought her amazed me! I wish that everyone had that kind of outlet.
    Blake has come to America to dance at Julliard. It has been his goal since he was younger. He has a hurtful past too and when he first sees Abbi there is a familiar look in her eyes. When they are paired together for a performance they start to build a relationship and Blake gets a better understanding of why Abbi secludes herself. Abbi fears that is Blake knew the truth about her he would run away but little does she know it might be what brings them closer together.
    I loved Blake and Abbi’s humor together! Their little remarks about ‘Bloody Americans’ and ‘Freakin’ British’ bring just the right amount of humor into a deep dark book. I also thought that Emma Hart did an amazing job with her descriptions/phrasings in this book. I felt Abbi’s pain and I also felt Blake’s. It was like I could really sense what each one was struggling with and wanted to comfort those pains for them.
    “Sometimes you have to take a risk. Anything you decide is going to go one of two ways; you’ll either get it wrong and move on, or you’ll get it right and live in that moment. Both of those outcomes will change your life. Both of them will alter the way you think, and both of them will affect decisions you make for the rest of your life, but that doesn’t mean they should make your future decisions for you.”
