His past is full of heartbreak.

Yet he's the one person that can remind her what it means to live.



Abbi Jenkins never thought she would leave the walls of the mental institution that's housed her for the last year. Now she has, but that doesn't mean she's forgotten everything Pearce put her through.

She knows there's only one way to deal with t

La historia tendrá sus topicazos y falla en la rapidez con la que se desarrolla casi todo, pero no se le puede negar a la autora, sobre todo con esta pareja Abbi-Blake, que escribe muy bonito. El modo de transmitir sentimientos y emociones llega hondo, y la dinámica entre los 2 protagonistas es muy cuqui y divertida. Pero tienen taaaaaaanto drama a sus espaldas y el romance es taaaaaan inmediato, que le resta puntos al libro.
Pero ha sido entretenida y con un sabor dulce a pesar de todo. El títu

Tak toto bol najhorší diel. Predvídateľné, neoriginálne, ani jednu postavu som si nejako neobľúbila... a pritom z toho nápadu sa dalo vyťažiť. Téma sebapoškodzovania sa dala spracovať oveľa, oveľa lepšie. Toto vo mne nevyvolávalo žiadne emócie.
Je to však taká jednohubka, veľmi rýchlo a dobre sa to číta :)

E poi, per un secondo meraviglioso, non sento più nulla, solo la musica. E in quel secondo, ritrovo un pezzetto di me stessa. Trovo una minuscola parte della combattività di cui mi ha parlato la dottoressa Hausen. E mi ci aggrappo più forte che posso, prima che la pesantezza mi spinga di nuovo giù.



Abbi Jenkins è una ragazza distrutta, sta ricostruendo se stessa passo dopo passo dedicandosi al suo sogno nel cassetto: la danza, che le permette di scacciare l’oscurità che ogni giorno rischia di ass

I have never been through depression myself and I can only hope that I never do. That being said, I've always had a hard time understanding depression. What causes it, why people do the things they do, how someone overcomes it...

This book explains that beautifully.

I absolutely loved the characters. Their depth, their humour and their connection.

I'm not gonna lie, I went into this book thinking that I wouldn't like it very much. Especially Abbi. The main reason for that was her attempt a

The Right Moves es el tercer libro de los cuatro que forman la saga The Game creada por la autora Emma Hart y narra la historia de Blake y Abbi.
Al ya haber leido libros de la autora me hacia una idea de lo que podria encontrar en esta lectura, ademas no esperaba demasiado de la historia, me conformaba con que fuera entretenida, lo que no esperaba era que todo el desarrollo fuera tan rapido, creo que si todo hubiera sido mas pausado me hubiera gustado mas la historia, ya que al ser todo tan apres

In true Emma Hart style, The Right Moves was sweet, emotional, and witty.

I think with all books that contain an emotional storyline, it's important to balance it out with some humour, and Emma always writes dialogue that has me laughing along. And I absolutely loved Abbi and Blake together. They were just so sweet. But then again, the ones who start off broken, always have a special place in my heart.

Emma knows a lot about depression, and that's evident in the portrayal of her character. Everyt

Book 3 of The Game series has us back with Abbi. If you remember Abbi, we met her in book 1 and she is Maddie's best friend who is also the girl her brother nearly destroyed. Abbi is trying to piece her life back together after nearly succeeding in taking her own life. After spending a year in a mental institution, she is back home and living with her parents and reclaiming her love of ballet. Then she meets Blake, her new dance partner and Blake stirs feelings she never thought she would feel a ...more

Tak tohle bylo úplně jiné kafe, než na co jsem od Emmy Hart zvyklá. Pořádná romantická scéna až na konci? Když to srovnám s Hrej hráčem... :D Jen mě mrzí ten překlad, protože v češtině nevyzní ten skvělý rozdíl mezi britskou a americkou angličtinou. Jednou to dám v originále, a to se teprve budu bavit. :D

No me gustó mucho, hizo demasiado hincapié en la enfermedad de ella, era monotemático, yo es que prefiero historias que me hagan pasar un buen rato y con este fue todo lo contrario...y no sé a qué fin le dieron ese título y le adjudicaron esa portada, que no estuvieron nada acertadas

Je to vtipné ako tak pozerám na ostatné názory ..ale toto sa mi nejako páčilo viac ako druhá časť. Hoci na Maddie a Bradena asi nemá nikto :)

Terzo volume della serie The Game e, questa volta, troveremo come protagonista un personaggio che, se avete ancora ben fresco in mente il primo volume, tanto sconosciuto non è.
Perché lo dico? Abigail Jenkins, Abbi, altro non è che la migliore amica di Maddie, la ragazza che, tempo addietro, riuscì a catturare il cuore del bello, tenebroso e un tantino insopportabile Braden, come scherzosamente piace dire a certe persone.
Ed ora eccoci alla recensione vera

She has a terrible story of depression and attempting suicide. He had a sister dead because of the emptiness of her life. Both of them love ballet and they meet at a ballet school. The story was good even if I expected something more.

I first read this series late last year, and once I had finished the first two books I knew I wanted to read more and the last two books in the series quickly found thier way onto my iPad.

Having already read the previous books, I had a basic idea of what Abbi had gone through, but for those who pick this book up first have it all briefly explained, so you are not missing out on anything.
Abbi is a ballet dancer but after Pearce broke her heart, and her self worth, Abbi went to places and thoughts

Questo libro è il terzo della serie The Game. Ogni volume parla di una coppia diversa, quindi anche se incontriamo alcuni dei personaggi già conosciuti negli episodi precedenti questo non inficia assolutamente la lettura dei singoli volumi.

Sicuramente, dei tre questo è il migliore. Non è una storia leggera, l'autrice pare distanziarsi dalle altre per adottare un tipo di narrazione diversa, più intensa e coinvolgente.
Il tema trattato è forte, tragico ma portato avanti con maestria e delicatezza.

Už jsem si zvykla na to, že díly této série jsou všechny předvídatelné a neoriginální, ale ty předchozí se alespoň četly dobře. Tenhle byl zbytečně depresivní, aniž by mě to donutilo s postavami jakkoli soucítit - i o depresích se dá psát tak, aby to zaujalo, a s postavami, které vás při čtení udrží, viz Deset malých nadechnutí.

Tady byla příliš velká náhoda, že si Blake po tom, co prožil se svojí sestrou, najde holku, která má úplně stejný problém s úplně stejnými projevy.

I am not an NA fan... I'm not. But if I keep reading them and liking them, I may end up making a liar out of myself. This was a really poignant story about a young woman fighting through deep clinical depression, finding reasons to live again, first through her love of ballet and then with a young man. One who was uniquely able to understand her pain and yet love her all the same. It was very well done and a beautiful love story. I don't know if the author wrote of the illness of depression 'rig ...more

Třebaže jsou příběhy jiné, autorky podpis je tu znatelný. Jak jsem již zmínila, je to právě čtivost, dále také vtipné hlášky, ale především střídající se kapitoly hlavních hrdinů.

Tento titul má mnoho svých poprvé, ale jedno mě překvapilo snad nejvíce. Autorka tentokrát vynechala milostné scény a sexuální hrátky a dokázala tím, že ona bez toho psát umí a také, že čtenář to k pravému prožitku knihy nepotřebuje. Čtenář o ně nebude ochuzen úplně, ale také bude vděčný, že jich není přehršel. Emma Ha

Ani netuším, jak dlouho jsem knihu četla, ale byla to krátká chvíle... A přesto, tak dokonale vystihující veškeré pocity, které se ve mě nahromadily. Nevím, jestli se mám usmívat nebo plakat, i když bych nejraději dělala oboje. Tak silný, emotivní a citlivý příběh jsem už skutečně dlouho nečetla a překonalo to všechny mé deprese - ať z knihy Dash & Lily: Kniha přání nebo Případ Amélia, které jsem zažila v nedávné době. Ale tomuhle se to nemohlo vyrovnat. Ta empatie, síla, odvaha, jako kdyby ...more

The issues Abbi struggled with gave me many types of feels. With that being said, I felt the romance was bland and rushed many times throughout the book. I also wish more of the original characters were in the book...I found myself wishing Abbi was in Berkeley dancing so she had more interaction with the characters I had already come to love.

Nevím jestli to bylo mou knižní kocovinou, stavem autorky, když knihu psala nebo jen knihou, ale přišlo mi, že tam NĚCO chybí.
Možná to bylo i tím, že deprese je něco, co mě straší několik let, a proto jsem knihu hůř snášela, ale jinak byla geniální a dostala se mi pod kůži. Jen jak říkám, takové to zapálení ve čtení tu jako v předchozích dílech nenastalo :)

Schade, die ersten beiden Teile waren um einiges besser.

Im dritten Band der "Love Games"-Reihe ist Emma Hart wohl nicht mehr viel eingefallen und so greift sie auf klischeehafte Handlungsstränge zurück.

Die Protagonisten sind genauso langweilig, wie der Verlauf der Geschichte.
Wirklich schade, weil ich die ersten beiden Teile eigentlich richtig gut fand...

Tak tohle bylo něco. Rozhodně nejlepší díl série, ale to se dalo očekávat. Jsem vážně ráda, že autorka potenciál, který ten nápad měl, dostatečně využila, protože po předchozích knihách jsem se bála, že tomu tak nebude.

Come gli atri due precedenti, questo libro è bellissimo. Gli altri erano più leggeri negli argomenti trattati e forse più fluidi, questo è un libro che ha una tinta più drammatica, che ti mette faccia a faccia con un problema che non ha età: la depressione. Mi è piaciuto un sacco!
