This had such a Crazy Rich Asians vibe and I loved it. With his stuck-up mom but his super sweet and loving personality. And I loved that Isabella was giving the big middle finger to her family by being her own person and just doing what she wanted to do, even though there was pressure from her brother, but still. She did what made her happy.

The Right Move tells the story of Indy, who works as a stewardess for the Chicago hockey team, and Ryan, who plays for the Chicago basketball team.

Not wanting to give up the job she loves so much and go live in Florida with her parents, Indy accepts the proposal of Stevie (Indy’s best friend) who insists a lot that Indy move in with Ryan, her twin brother.

Liz Tomforde’s book was able to capture me from the first page with a superfluid and relaxed reading even for those who are not fluent in English. The book has passionate characters and several ups and downs as well as several tropes.
