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

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

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

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
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

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.

The Right Moves is book 3 in THe Game Series. Is a standalone, romantic comedy from awesome author Emma Hart. I absolutely loved reading about Abbi Jenkins & Blake Smith . The plot is everything you want in a romantic comedy and so much more, lots of emotions.

I just love Abbi and Blake. They were just too cute, yes she has her demons and he has a past. But they worked well for the better. He helped her and vice versa.

This book is a pleasure to read from the start to the end. The character of Abbie and her problems are very touching. I read every words and it touched me particulary. What I prefer in this book is how the feelings of Abbie were written. We can really see how she finally knows how to start living again.
I also like the fact that the feelings they got for each others isn't very show, it's a childish love story, very pure.

I really recommend to read this book !

I am in love with Emma's The Game series, so when I saw she was writing Abbi's book I could hardly contain my excitement! We met her briefly in the first book, as she is Maddie's best friend, and your heart couldn't help but break for her, as she was institutionalized, after attempting suicide. Abbi's story is both heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time, and I'm glad Hart was not afraid to dive into such a difficult topic. This book is realistic and shows you the effects depression has on Ab ...more

Actual Rating: 4.5 stars

If you've been following The Game Series, then you'll remember Abbi from The Love Game . It's not necessary to read it prior to reading The Right Moves , but it would be beneficial for getting a deeper insight on her past and present state of being.

She is a shadow of me."

Abbi was in an abusive relationship and as much as she knew she needed to get out, she couldn't find the strength within herself to leave. She couldn't deal wit

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I thought that The Right Moves was a good story. As I started of reading it, I was immediately drawn in. From the first chapter I thought I should have my tissues ready for a good cry. Emma has a great writing style and develops some good characters that will have you laughing.

Abbi, an 18 year old girl has so many fears, demons, insecurities and is trying to overcome them all. Dance seemed to be the only thing stopping her from repeating the ev

This was such a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful book. Did I mention it's beautiful?
The writing is flawless and the dialogue flows seamlessly between each character and portrays them in a way that brings such realism to their personalities and individual traits. For once we're treated to a set of remarkable and caring parents (Abbi's anyway). The subject matter too is done in such a caring and sensitive way when we get an intense look inside the mind of someone suffering severe depression throug

This installment of The Game series has characters of Maddie and Braden from the first book visit a couple of times, but it had a completely different feel to it than the other two books in the series. I would have preferred we stayed at Berkeley with the group we have already met, quite honestly. Instead the book takes place in Brooklyn and Manhattan in NY.

This book is about Maddie's best friend who is also the girl her brother nearly destroyed. Abbi is trying to piece her life back together af

We met Abbi in The Love Game as Maddie’s best friend, so I was excited after hearing some of her back story to see she was getting her own book!

Abbi’s book is a lot deeper than the previous two books in this series, it deals with some real, hard issues, and overcoming these things to find happiness. We didn’t know much about Abbi going into this book, except that she was in a mental institution for trying to kill herself. We start this book with her out, and trying to live again.

Broadway Girl  Book Reviews (Beth Lattanzi)
Depression is a serious topic that many people struggle with daily. Not everyone is able to pull out of that and find something worth living for, find something worth getting out of bed and dressing for. The is the story of finding hope; when you are in one of your darkest places in life and pulling through and finding something worth living for.

My heart broke for Abbi and the demons that she was struggling with. She had to fight her depression on a daily basis, even though some days were worse
Rachel R. (My Book Empire)
I’ve read some books by Emma Hart and I must say that this one affected me the most – in a positive way of course.

“The things that give you real happiness are priceless.”
I was used to Maddie and Braden’s playful banter in The Love Game and I honestly expected something like that too in this book but Hart surprised me.

Abbi is a very brave woman. Battling depression is one thing, but living through all the hardships is another. Sure, she was admitted in an institution, treated there and finally g

Out of the three game series books, this one takes the cake. I loved it. I love how heartfelt this story is. How you feel the angst and pain that both Blake and Abbi are going through. How they are trying to heal and how they feel safe with each other. How dance is their escape but mostly how they have each other to help one another heal and move on.

Abbi has had a devastating relationship that destroyed her. This sweet shy young lady who lives to dance had someone destroy her self confidence and

This is the 3rd book in Emma Hart’s “The Game” series. I was introduced to this series through twitter when someone posted the new cover art for the first two in the series, The Love Game & Playing For Keeps.

Wow, I don’t even know where to start… You have a girl that was horribly broken, so bad that she almost couldn’t make it back up to the light… you have a hot Brit who tragically lost his sister. Both of them broken, but together oh so perfect.

Abbi literally broke my freakin’ heart on almost every page! There were times when I seriously didn’t think she was going to make it, but she was just so strong and she wouldn’t let the darkness win. Totally loved her strength and perseverance!
