Review: (Game For Love) All the Right Moves by Marquita Valentine

Rating: ★★★★
Date published: July 13th, 2014
Publisher: Kindle Worlds
Synopsis: Ryan Turner has all the right moves but Ashley Mitchell refuses to be played... 

After being dumped on her wedding day by her football playing ex, Ashley Mitchell has sworn off dating athletes. She refuses to come in second to a pigskin ever again. Until she meets Ryan Turner, the sexy tight end of the Atlanta Avengers, during puppy-parenting class. 

Ryan Turner takes one look at Ashley and he’s hooked. But for the first time since becoming a sports hero, Ryan fumbles the ball. Ashley wants nothing to do with him, but he can’t stay away. 

When Ryan makes her an offer she can’t refuse, Ashley finds herself charmed by the real man beneath the uniform. But, Ryan only has two dates to convince her he’s ready to play for keeps. 

What I Thought:

Marquita Valentine has written another great story.  It comes in at 80 pages and was a fairly quick read for me.  I really liked this story.  I think what made it so sweet was the inclusion of family.  I got to meet Gunner and Bluebelle, Ryan and Ashley's dogs and Ashley's brothers who are all named after characters from "Gone With the Wind". 

The conflict in this book surprised me with its simplicity but somehow it worked.  I would've loved to have seen a showdown between Ryan, Ashley, and her ex, especially after it's revealed Ryan and he were once on the same team.

I liked Ryan and Ashley.  I was surprised and elated to discover there's no insta-love/lust in the book.  I was also very satisfied with the ending; the short story really feels like a compressed full length novel.  It's got all the Marquita Valentine magic of one her books.
