Review: Moving On by Felice Stevens
Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.
Felice Stevens starts off the new year with a forced proximity romance, and it's got two main characters with strong personalities. Moving On is the story of Sean Lovett, a down-on-his-luck guy needing a place to stay and finds exactly that when his sister offers a vacant apartment she and her husband own, and Tristan McDermott, a former police detective turned corporate security specialist who has been having trouble finding a place to buy and is offered by a client and friend living quarters he could use for the time being. The clincher? Tristan's friend is none other than Sean's brother-in-law, meaning they both end up in the same apartment. To share or not to share, that is the question! But that one turns out to be far easier to answer than whether they should act on their undeniable attraction to each other or not. Moving in and sharing an apartment is one thing, but moving on from hooking up to getting hooked on a feeling that may be forever.
There was quite a bit of tension going on between Sean and Tristan for a good portion of this standalone, but you know what they say--resistance is futile, although there was a fair amount of back and forth that happened because of the aforementioned resistance. Both men experienced their own share of tragedy and trauma prior to their paths crossing, and it felt like they were meant to meet and be what the other needed at just the right time. As always, Felice Stevens delivers her brand of romance with that familiar touch of angst that I can't resist. And a quick FYI for readers who are familiar with her Man Up series, Tristan is indeed the same one from there. Moving On gets four stars.
