    [The First Move] E–pub à Jennifer Lohmann Hey so you know how I constantly ask for books that portray functional co parenting between divorced couples? THIS IS THAT BOOKI would like it for that alone how messy and complicated those kinds of relationships can be but it also does a pretty good job with the complexity of balancing doing the right thing for your child versus the feeli

characters The First Move

characters The First Move 100 Ith Renia is too important to let her past stand in their way He'll do whatever is necessary to help her accept her choices and move on even if that means a salsa lesson or two Because now that he's made the first move he wants the second to be hers. My copy of The First Move was provided to me by the Jennifer Lohmann herself after I tweeted her to ask whether she knew if the e version would be available in the UK I d read Wendy the Superlibrarian s review you see and it sounded like just my sort of bookRenia Milek s world was crushed when she was a teenager when her father grandfather and one of her brothers were killed in a car accident Her mum withdrew into her own head and Renia Rey as she called herself then reacted by acting out There was drinking drugs and sleeping around It all ended with Rey getting pregnant and her mother shipping her off to an aunt to have her baby The aunt was very supportive and helped Rey do what she needed to screw her head back on including giving her baby up for adoption At the time Rey thought it best to cut ties to the baby so she opted for a closed adoption There was a provision for her daughter to contact her when she turned 18 though and now that the time has come where she might receive a phone call from her Renia is both scared and terrifiedIt s a really bad time to come across Miles Brislenn again Miles was a shy kid who went to the same school as her and he had a huge crush on her He recognises her the minute he sees her but Renia has no idea who he is She only knows he calls her Rey so he must know her from her worst times But as things come to a head with her daughter Miles becomes a surprising source of supportThere was a lot to like here Renia is a really interesting character and at a really interesting time in her life I really appreciated how sensitively the issue of her having given her daughter in adoption was handled This is not yet another book saying that giving a baby up even when it s patently the right thing to do will screw you up for life It s true that Rey IS pretty screwed up about what happened but I d argue that it s clear that this is about her mother s abandonment of her teenage self than about her own abandonment of her baby That issue with Renia s mother leads to my favourite aspect of the book which is the very complicated relationship between the two They have a very civilised relationship now but a distant one and it s clear Renia s mother is desperate to fix that but doesn t know how There s a long overdue conversation near the end that had me choking back tears In fact the family angst was the best thing about the book and it was really really good In addition to the sections about Renia s mother there s the stuff with her birth daughter This is developed really slowly and Lohmann doesn t make it into some sort of insta connection It feels realistic both painful and hopeful at the same time and I really liked it I also liked Renia s relationship with Sarah Miles daughter in whom she sees bits of herselfI was a bit less enthused by the romance Renia uestions whether Miles loves the real her or whether he s just reacting to his old crush on her 16 year old self and I must say I uestioned that at times Also although Miles was pitch perfect most of the time always being very accepting of Rey s past and her current issues there was that fight at the end which seemed to show that deep down he wasn t uite as accepting as all that I m in two minds about that On one hand I liked seeing he wasn t uite perfect but on the other that might have come a bit too late in the book and he didn t uite redeem himself from what I felt was a really mean almost unforgivable thing to sayOn the whole though I really enjoyed this The writing is good and flows smoothly and the pacing is generally good as well There s a bit of a draggy section round the middle but things got going again soon after and I raced to the endMY GRADE It s a B

characters The First Move 100 An unlikely encounterbut he'll take it  It seems like fateor something When Miles Brislenn spies the girl he had a crush on in high school at his ex wife's wedding no less he can't let the opportunity pass He might not have had the courage to talk. This book made me emotional in a good way I m not a crying sort of reader It rarely happens But there are moments in this story where I was reading with a lump in my throat and I really think that s on the strength of the heroine Romance as a genre tends to spend an inordinate amount of time and energy focusing on hunky beefcake heroes who are emotionally screwed up because their Mama Daddy Brother Pet Goldfish didn t love them enough Yeah heroes are great but romance works because at the end of the day it s the heroine s journey It s a genre that relies on studs for the sex appeal but it gets its running legs from the heroines Renia drives this story Renia pretty much makes or breaks this story And in my opinion She makes it She s stellar

Cute book with lots of plot This is a very full story and honestly I was a little overwhelmed It felt long to me but anytime I tried to look for someplace I would cut I couldn t find one because every page seemed essential to the story line Truly this book was packed with plot That s common for a Harleuin SuperRomance but I ve read a decent number in the line to know that not all of them are uite so packed It s not a bad thing to have a lot of plot but it does make for a lot of storylines to wrap up at the very end which I think lead to me being overwhelmed Our HEA didn t happen until the very last few pages made it feel slightly rushed even though it worked well with the way the story progressed I think I just kept seeing how few pages I had left and was worried not everything would be tied up nicely at the endI read this for my romance book club where the theme of the month was secret babies This book fit that theme well which is all I ll say to prevent spoilers I did think the baby issue was handled with a lot of care and lot detail than I m used to This book was incredibly realistic Both hero and heroine were incredibly flawed major mistakes and dealt with them as actual real people would Not a terrible thing to read but not exactly what I m used to in a romance especially not in a Harleuin I bought this book because Jennifer Lohmann is a fellow librarian full disclosure I have met her on one occasion and have communicated with her on Twitter both before and after she published and I wanted to be supportive I was unsure what to expect but I really liked what I read This was a well written tightly paced story with realistic characters and real emotion If all her books are like this I will be checking out others Final grade B
