Link to buy Moving In
Story Rating: 2 out of 5
This is a novella, and the 1st book in a series which I was unprepared for as it not mentioned anywhere, nowhere in the synopsis. For readers I think it is important that authors let readers know this is the first book in a series, otherwise you will end up like I did at the end of this novella looking at the last sentence infuriated and wondering what the hell just happened. Dropped like a rock, cliff hangers… not my favorite type of ending.
However, that being said…
Moving In had an interesting premise. A deeply sensitive male character and an interesting female protagonist whose character well runs much deeper than you would think. The reader will enjoy the age switch-out with the male character taking on the younger role and the female taking on the older character role. Although, Dean does come off much older than twenty.
Some of the greatest lines in the read come from Angie the best friend, which is always unfortunate when a side-character comes in and over-whelms the main-characters. Singh tries to build sexual tension between Dean and Lace, unfortunately it falls short. As to Lace’s virginity by the end of the novella the reader is beat to death with Lace’s virginity and the reader is sick of hearing about it. There seems to be blanks in the storyline for both characters where Singh is trying to build mystery and suspense but for the reader it only irritates.
Overall, Moving In had great potential but feel short for me. The premise and the writing were well done. Singh has the beginning of something very interesting, however, with the cliff hanger ending and the blanks in the story not sure if it is something a reader will look for the next in the series.
