Making the First Move

Making the First Move by Reese Ryan


3 Stars

Making the First Move is a fast paced, contemporary romance.  This long distance, friends turn lovers idea has been worked and reworked so many ways I thought I had read them all.  Then I picked up this book and was pleasantly surprised. 

The one thing that I wasn’t too fond of was Melanie’s characters.  She was self centered, immature and quite frankly needed to grow up.  Other than that character the book was pretty good.


Five years of obsessing over her career pays off when Melanie Gordon gets a promotion that could make or break her. But the new job takes her back to her hometown to face the family she's distanced herself from, and forces her to leave behind sexy, mysterious philanthropist Raine Mason, who just might be the man of her dreams.

By the time Raine makes his move with Melanie, her one-way ticket to Cleveland is booked. He convinces her to take a chance on him long-distance, but can't yet trust her with the whole truth about himself.

Raine and Melanie slowly peel back each other's layers (starting with his bicep-hugging sweater). She is finally ready to give her heart to him...until she learns the dark secret of his past. He'll have to prove to her that love is worth the risk.
