Review: Moving On (College of Charleston #3) by Kate L. Mary

After a year with her dying aunt, Bette knows what she wants from life.

1. Keep Aunt Missy’s House

Chris Pressley is the perfect roommate—uptight and damaged and hung up on his ex. And hot. Bette doesn’t date, but she definitely likes looking.

2. Get Her Dream Job

Chris just needs to get away from the happiest couple on campus: the sweet, shy girl he loves and his former best friend. Watching Bette rock her tattoos and her curves even as she builds her own business is an education. That’s probably why he can’t keep his mind off her…

3. Never Compromise

Bette isn’t interested in changing for anyone. But the heat rising between her and Chris won’t leave her the same…

Expected publication: February 16th 2016 by Lyrical Press

Terri's Thoughts

**I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher Lyrical Press via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is February 16th, 2016**

This is the third story in the College of Charleston series however it can be read as a stand alone.  It just so happens that I read the first in the series however not the second.  In this story it pucks up with Chris who was one of the key characters in the first installment.  Although not required, I did find it helpful that I read the first one as I was able to put some things in to context particularly when it came to his ex. 

I really liked Bette in this story.  She wasn't the typical girl you expect.  She had piercings and visible tattoo's and values that she held dear.  She was not what you would expect if you judged a book by it's cover which was the premise of the whole story.

The romance aspect of this story also worked for me.  Bette and Chris started out as friends and roommates.  You could see the evolution of the attraction as the story unfolded.  Sometimes the attraction is so instant that you are left wondering how it happened however in this story you had the pleasure of seeing it unfold.  I liked that.  I also really liked Chris'  mother, she was a little spitfire.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and I also enjoyed this one.  I think I will go back to read the middle story so I can complete the story.  I recommend reading the entire series however if you do not have time, this one will also suffice.
