The thing about love…

It’s kind & beautiful, soft & hard, forgiving & emotional, but love can also be blind. Love can twist and turn you into someone unrecognizable.

That’s the way it was for Josie and me. She became my everything. I fell heart over mind, allowing her to take the only thing that I could call my own. The life I envisioned for us was blurred by secrets,

Love in Motion is a good read. When reading it I was hooked and didn't want to put it down. Dalton is a sexy lead singer for DOL. DOL is made up of him and his friends, Owen and Luke. These guys are bandmates but also best friends and I loved the dynamics of that. Dalton is a nice guy with some issues. His relationship with his Dad has not been great. He and his friend's head home because his Dad is sick. While there he meets Joselyn. Joselyn is a sweet nice girl. Up until the time her friend Ro ...more

This was an easy to read insta love kind of romance. Who doesn't like a rockstar?! A 3.5 star book for me.

Dalton met Joselyn and they had a connection. Both had family issues but they tried to overcome that. It was a sweet story without much drama.

The author could give us a better background story about Dalton and Joselyn so that we could connect with them better.

I've received a complimentary copy of the book from the author via VoraciousReadersOnly.

I have to start by saying this author is new to me and I’m glad I went in blind because this book was a wonderful read. There is nothing better than finding an author who gives a common plotline a new and fresh voice and Mrs. Parker has achieved that in Love In Motion. This is Dalton and Joselyn’s story.

Dalton is the lead singer of the band DOL with his two friends, Owen and Luck. Dalton has been called home from a concert tour due to his father’s failing health. He and his father have a very st

This is not my first book by Angela and it won't be my last. I fell in love with everything this story had to offer. Joselyn and Dalton were two well rounded and developed characters. They flowed like a melody bleeding from the pages of my kindle.
Joselyn is a woman who knew where she wanted to be professionally. Personally, though, that was another matter. I admired her strength to guard secrets, loyalty to protect, and heart as big as the ocean. She grew for me in this story, and we really got

Angela K. Parker is a new to me author, and I found myself very captivated by Love In Motion, as I devoured it in quick order. This is a sweet rock star romance, as Dalton is the lead singer with DOL, a band made up of him & his two best friends Owen & Luke. He has some past issues with his father which is how he came across Josie's path. She's a girl who has some past demons, but she's a hard worker, and has no clue who DOL is. However, she & Dalton end up with an instant connection to each oth ...more

Ms. Parker is a new author to me and Love in Motion was a surprisingly enjoyable read. This is a rock star romance with quite a few secondary storylines which make it a bit unique. Dalton and Jocelyn was very likeable characters but I would have liked to have read more about how their relationship developed -- it felt like it moved from them meeting to having an all-in relationship that I didn't completely "feel.". Having said that though, I did feel the emotional angst during the last 25% of th ...more

This was a new author for me and I'm glad I picked this one up! I love a good rockstar romance. This book was a fake-to-real relationship plus insta-love. I loved how Dalton and Josie only had eyes for each other and I was rooting for them. I was hoping for more details about Dalton and his family and some more depth to the band- what type of music they played, more details with their interview from Josie to get more of a sense of who the characters were.
Not too much steam, but a lot of sweet lo

This is a new author to me, and I was not to sure what to expect, but I need not have worries, and this is an author I will certainly be looking out for in the future! This is Dalton and Joslyn’s story. This is one of those stories which just had to be devoured in one sitting. This is a well written story which has relatable and engaging characters as well as an in-depth plot which is filled with twists, secrets, emotions, and love. I cannot wait to read more from this author, and I highly recom ...more

Wonderful rockstar romance

Such a great read! This is the first book I have read by Angela Parker and It will not be my last! Such a wonderful group of characters, great storyline, and I loved the underlying secrets!

Dalton is a rockstar whose band mates are like brothers, a dying father, a few secrets, and no girlfriend.

Joselyn is a reporter needing to get a story, a good heart, some secrets of her own, and is a strong heroine.

I loved all of be characters in this book and hope Rose and Luke ge

Got a free copy to review from voracious readers only. I just wanted to say I've just finished love in motion. It's not a book I would normally read. But wow was it good.. it kept me engaged the whole way through. I hope there will be more stories with Joselyn and Dalton. Highly recommend this to anyone. Thank you. Because of this I found a love in books I never knew I had. Had to believe this is literally the first book I have finished since I left school almost 15 years ago.. I just couldn't p ...more

“Love in Motion was utterly fabulous. Joselyn and Dalton’s story was the kind of story you cant help but love. It had romance, a hero with some family issues and a sweet girl with a hard past too. They were a match made in heaven and their instant connection melted my heart. So I’m not a great fan of rockstar romances but Angela’s writing style completely trapped me. A cute and lovely romance that I highly recommend you.”

I read this book in one sitting, it's very good. I coudn't put it down.
The story is about band member Dalton and "normal girl" Josie and how their story reveals.
I liked the fact that they didn't have much problems and obstacles in their story.

Flow in story is  captivating, I was hooked all the way. Some scenes were predictable but I was still surprised on some parts. 

I assume that Luke's and Rosies' story is next one.

I liked the funny repartee between the characters. The humor helped to balance the seriousness of family issues. I felt surprised by a plot twist that complicated the relationship between Dalton and Josie. This story presents a simplified glimpse into a musician's public life and its effect on his romantic life keeping this a lighthearted love story.

Love in Motion tells the tale of Dalton and Josie. They both have had difficult lives so far that have made them who they are and lead to the choices they have had
But can they two people over comes their insecurities, the challenges put on them by family, friends and enemies and the strain of hidden secrets to build a love to last
It's beautifully written and many of the twists I really didn't see coming x

A different romance, the girl next door catches the eye of the rock star. Josie has had it rough but her life has been good with her best friends. Dalton has come back home for his father, along with his band mates. One look at Josie and he’s gone but it’s not so easy with all that’s going on. I admire the strength and patience on Josie. It’s a cute romance but also with its depth.

This was a good rock star romance. I was pulled in right away and didn't want to put it down. I really enjoyed the dynamics between Dalton and his bandmates/friends. Joselyn is a such a sweetie. They both have some past issues they're moving on from. There's secrets and twists and I really enjoyed watching it all unfold. I highly recommend Love in Motion. ...more

Great characters that will keep your interest extremely well.
I'm not going to go into detail, no spoilers, just read the book if you are even mildly intrigued by the blurb. You'll thank me later!

The chemistry, sweetness, and twists in plot kept things interesting. Add in drama and passion and you have a good read.

This is the 4th book I've read written by Angela K. Parker; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.

I received a free ecopy of this book from voracious readers and this is my honest review. I read lots of books and I like a good love story so this fitted the bill perfectly. Dalton the famous rock star meets joselyn the 'normal' next door type girl and they are drawn to each other instantly. He's not into the groupies who usually throw themselves at him and she can't believe that a rockstar would be that interested in her when he could have any girl he chooses. Dalton finds joselyns natural bea ...more
