A must read Romantic Comedy....

Being called the worst boyfriend can do a number on a man’s ego.
But I handled it the way any full-grown adult male would—by eating copious amounts of carbs and wallowing over whether I was good enough.
I admit, it wasn’t the best of moments, but it made me realize I needed answers to the question, what are women looking for inside and out of

When his snotty, shallow girlfriend dumps him with a list of thirty reasons why he’s the worst boyfriend, Preston Griffin, 25, embarks on a plan to redeem himself. And the person he turns to is his neighbor and best friend since they were seven, Tenley Ray.

Told via their dual first person POV, this is a friends to lovers romance. It’s super sweet and the sexy times are steamy and yet still done meaningfully. It definitely came across that they were making love, not just hooking up. Th

Review for:
All the Right Moves
By Becca Taylor
5/5 Stars

Preston is a stats guy, and after being told he is the worst boyfriend on the planet, he sets out to survey people about when women want in a boyfriend. After all his research he turns to his best friend Tenley to test what he has learned. Little did they both know it would turn into much more than research.

100% in love with Preston!

All The Right Moves was just the book I needed at just the right time. You know when you are in a mood and you just can’t quite get out of it. Well let me tell you All The Right Moves pulled me right out of the funk I was in. The book brought a smile to my face throughout the entire time I was reading. It is not only entertaining but has lots of sweet, endearing and funny moments. I not only fell in love with Preston and Tenley but there friends too.

OHHHHHH PRESTON!!! I’ll have freaking donuts with you any day lol

I absolutely loved the progress of this best friends to lovers story!! After the whole ‘you’re the worst boyfriend ever’ announcement, the book went on amazingly!!! From the survey to conducting his 30 days experiment to having that extension period to the end, it was fun to see the progress of their relationship. It was just beautiful and enjoyable.

I love friends to lovers romance so I knew I would love this book. I was right. I fell in love with Preston and Tenley. Preston and Tenley are the best of friends and were content with just being friends. Well, Preston was anyway. Tenley has been in love with her best friend for quite a while but wondered if they would ever be more. When Preston's girlfriend dumps him and gives him a list of reasons he is the worst boyfriend, Preston vows to prove her wrong and comes up with what he thinks is a ...more

OMG - Firstly, WTF is wrong with Chanel! Seriously!

First of all that damn list of what's wrong with him. Who has time to make a list, that...that...petty. 30 items! If he was that bad why'd she stay so long. And they were even real complaints!

Now I've got that out of my system, how good was this book!

I loved Tenley & Preston as besties. Anything more than that, well it would be a bonus. But to have that person who'd stand beside you no matter how many things were "wrong" with you, and suppo

I really loved All the right moves it's written by one of my favorite authors Becca Taylor if this would be the first one you read by the author then you'll be hooked from the first page . The chemistry between the couple if off the charts you can feel the connection they feel for one another . It had me laughing , swooning , and at times maybe a tad bit frustrated with the characters . You don't want to miss out on this amazing story as soon as possible .

After Preston is called “the worse boyfriend”, he does some research into what women want, and to try out his theory, he gets his best friend Tenley to help him. These two have been best friends since childhood, so will this experiment open both of their eyes to the possibility of more? Will they move from friends / lovers? No spoilers; this is a definite must read, you will not be disappointed! This is a beautifully written story, which is sweet, endearing, humorous, and entertaining. I was tot ...more

I have read other books from this author, so I was not surprised in how much I loved it! It is filled with heart melting moments that includes some extra spicy (wink wink). Tenley and Preston bring us a story about a long term friendship that turns into more (eek). I love both these characters because they feel like everyday people trying to figure out relationships. Oh don’t get me wrong, they are far from boring and have a juicy tale to tell (hee hee). Umm as a outsider looking in, you can see ...more

All the right moves by Becca Taylor a five-star read that has all the good moves. This author has a way to write sweet and funny that will make you chuckle, there is just the right amount of steaminess to make it believable and true to life. Preston is a good guy, who hasn’t always done the right things and now he wants to do it right. His story was great, it was so nice to hear his voice telling us the story. Betsie Tenley was good as well, she took a few pages to warm to, but overall also very ...more

Best Friends forever to lovers? Can it be that good & true?
It’s amazing what you will ask of your best friends when you have insecurities... the question is, will that best friend be able to do what you ask? Especially when their own heart is at risk?
This book shows you just how sometimes, you think you know everything about someone & you really don’t. I absolutely loved this book & the characters!!! OMGOODNESS! I fell in love with them! Of course I really wish we could’ve seen Chan
Original review:

What is the main thing I expect from a Romantic Comedy novel? To have some good laughs along the romance. Witty banter and funny situations. Some belly ache due to a really bad joke. Sense of humor in general. So, let me be disappointed if a so-called Romantic Comedy is anything except comedic. It’s harsh, but it is the truth. Nonetheless, it’s a nice reading that I have enjoyed.

The story is mostly told from the point of view of Preston, a

All the Right Moves is the story of:

Absolutely delightful!!! All The Right Moves by Becca Taylor had me giggling out loud so many times my cheeks hurt. This romantic comedy is super smart and witty with a storyline I haven’t heard before which makes this book one I will recommend over and over again.

Preston was not only dumped by his long time girlfriend, she even made a list of things that made him, in her mind, the worse boyfriend ever. Preston was so shocked by this that he let himself feel down and out. This didn’t last long

Becca Taylor is a new to me author, so All the Right Moves was the first book that I've read by her, and it was a good way to start out. First of all, it's very original in the telling, with an insecure hero trying to figure out love & relationships. Preston was given a list of bad things about why he was a failure as a boyfriend by his longtime girlfriend when she broke up with him. So after losing the plot like women do after a breakup, he gets himself back up with trying to figure out to ...more

I loved this book!
Preston is dumped by his girlfriend for basically everything, the guy can't do anything right according to her.
Now Preston's a stats man and he compiles a list of things women want from a man and he decides to work on it.
He gets Tenley, his best friend, to give his findings a trial run and see if it's really right and if he can be a man that a woman wants. It just so happens that Tenley has feelings for Preston but she's kept them well hidden.

DNF at chapter 23 (out of 30). I'm just so bored, it's decent I guess, and it's low angst, and it's sweet (I guess you can say) - but I'm just bored from the start. I cannot feel Preston and Tenley's connection, I am not sure what it is - whether it's the writing or the story, but something about this book just doesn't connect. And I don't want to waste my
