Product Description

Product Description

Jesika Reynolds’ heart was left broken one year ago when her husband died, leaving her and her son alone in this world. Slowly, she started putting the pieces back together of her life. Knowing that she may never open herself up to love again. That was until the day Derek came into the picture.

Why does this gorgeous stranger seem to care so much, so suddenly?

Derek Jordan's charm drew her in with an instant connection, and familiarity that helps her feel at ease. Her heart is falling at his feet, but as their relationship grows, so does a secret from both of their pasts that neither saw coming. One by one, the threads slowly start to unravel.

Can their newly sought love stand up against the secrets that life is unlocking to their pasts? Or can they decide together that moving forward and forgetting the past is the only option for them to find true happiness?

About the Author

Being born an "Army Brat", Erika Ashby has been residing in Oklahoma the last 10 years finally putting an end to the nomad tendencies she had grown accustomed to. She's a happily married woman who has 5 kids between her and her husband. She has an insane passion for music and embraces her Inner Groupie any chance she has. It wasn't until the age of 29 that she realized she also had a hidden passion for reading; before then she claimed to have hated it. Six months after unlocking that deep desire she never knew she held, she turned the key to another chapter of her life which has become the desire to write. And the rest is still history in the making.

HASH(0x9b830690) out of 5 stars 4.5 laugh out loud and then BAM! heart pounding stars. March 22 2013

4.5 laugh out loud and then BAM! heart pounding stars.

~Given an ARC copy by the author for an honest review~

Erika Taylor's debut novel is sure to be a hit!

Moving Forward has all the emotional investments I crave in a good story.

I was choked up right from the beginning, then I got pissed and wanted to punch a certain someone, which was quickly followed by angst and then a gut rolling humor. Of course the one emotion missing from all of this which I certainly can't do without in a romance is the butterflies in my chest. I get the all clenching good ache. This did eventually show up and it was so worth the wait. I'm talking up-against-a-brick-wall wait and so damn worth it!

And then, the sex........WHEW!!! Talk about "burnin love. There's one particular scene where the sheets literally could have caught fire and I don't think either Jesika or Derek would have known, they were that caught up in the moment. It was beautiful!

In addition to being humorous and emotional this book touches on a deeply personal issue that so many suffer the loss of. Losing a spouse cannot be an easy subject to breach, in any way, but Erika has managed to portray this story from a different perspective than any I've read before. I loved the opening of this book in so many ways and I truly think it gives the reader a certain scope that is bound to make you want to know more.

On top of two very steamy leading characters, you'll meet Mallory, Jesika's bestie; Seth, Derek's older brother and Nick, Derek's co-worker and friend. These supporting characters help bring the story together and give it a situational element that I adored!

I can't wait to see what else Erika can bring us! I'll be (not so patiently) waiting for Book #2 in the Timing is Everything series.

p.s. Moving Forward, the story itself, is NOT a cliffhanger!

Story could have been compelling, but pacing is uneven and character development is anemic. There are a number of chapters that taste like filler, as if the author had a minimum page requirement. Characters seem to appear and disappear, and the big drama just isn't. Switching focus from the two main characters to two others, clearly to set up the next book in the series, further weakens the main plot.

Then there's the language.. Although 'lay' and 'lie' are used correctly a few times, there are errors elsewhere. A number of times relatively common adjectives are applied completely incorrectly, to jarring effect.

Finally, the misuse of 'expertise' ("I need your expertise advice," and "I am expertise in all things,") within a page of each other sealed it. For $0.99 I'll let a lot of things slide, this combination of weak narrative, clumsy language, one-dimensional characters and repetition (did I mention repetition?) ticked me off enough to write a review. There are much better uses of your time, your buck and your bandwidth.

HASH(0x9b830ae0) out of 5 stars Fooled by 5-star reviews July 26 2013

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The premise of this book was good, unfortunately, it fell short for me. The drama did not work, leaving the book with no suspense or story arc to keep the reader interested. The characters were one dimensional and perfect, and the dialogue was too corny to read at times -no one speaks to each other the way these two did. I read ALOT of books and tend to read the bad reviews first to get an idea of both ends of the spectrum. The number of good reviews does not match the quality of the writing.

"A Fireman, a Drummer and a Super hero walk into a bar ....
... yeah, there's no punch line, that's just a fantasy of mine"

I adapted that from a picture that hit my Facebook news feed a little while ago. If you can relate, then Moving Forward is a book you may want to pick up.

Let me introduce Derek Jordan, fireman, drummer, single dad and genuine nice guy. Light brown hair, ice blue eyes, model good looks and did I mention he's a fireman and a drummer?? Derek has watched Jesika from afar for a while, not in a crazy stalker kind of way, but in the "oh my god she's beautiful and wouldn't you know it married" kind of way. Respectful and reverant is probably how I would describe the way he has been aware of Jesika and his interest in her. A first hand encounter, in less than ideal circumstances, only adds to Derek's feelings and leaves him with a glimmer of hope that maybe, if he's patient, there could be a future for them.

Jesika Reynolds, a loving mother and wife, completely devoted to her husband Jake and son Jaxon is devastated when Jake is killed in a car accident. Moving Forward starts off twelve months after his death, at the point where Jesika is grappling with her love for her dead husband holding her back from living her life and being happy. She is trying to make choices that won't disrespect the love she had for Jake, but will allow her to be the best mother she can for Jaxon and have a life that is fulfilling and happy.

Jesika and Derek officially meet at a career's day at their children's school. Neither can understand the undeniable connection they feel. They cautiously start to explore their feelings for each other and the story follows the development of their relationship, in which Jesika and Derek must deal with issues from their pasts before they can truly 'move forward'.

There are lots of connections or history between characters in this story, although they don't all know this at the same time. For me this added a level of intrigue to the story as there was no 'inevitable' outcome, although in the end it did wrap up fairly predictably. A couple of times I found myself wondering whether there was a yet to be explained significance to a character and thought it would have been good to develop the story more in some of those situations. For example, Jesika's best friend from college, Holden, makes a couple of appearances and for me his contribution to the story was very limited and I wasn't really sure whether there was more to uncover about him. There were other unanswered questions for me, which was a little frustrating, although I did wonder if they were deliberate and will form the basis of future books by Taylor. I think the book would benefit from at least one more chapter before the Epilogue. The last chapter finished with a fairly intense scene and I would have liked just a little bit more story before jumping ahead a few months.

The story is told from both Derek and Jesika's point of view (alternating chapters) and I really like this style. I like to see things from both perspectives and I think it helps the reader develop a greater understanding of the characters. There is also a great 'supporting cast' in Moving Forward, in particular Jesika's best friend, Mallory and Derek's brother, Seth. They are both avoiding commitment and, on the face of it, only in the whole relationship game for the sex and the 'fun'. We learn that Seth has had a heart breaking encounter previously and as a consequence guards his heart closely, although he argues that his rocker lifestyle and prioritisation of the band is what keeps him from tying himself down. Mallory just seems to have a knack for picking the wrong guy, the type that always ends up breaking her heart and despite her outward confidence I think there is definitely more to her story. The relationship that develops between these two is a side story, but you are interested to know where it's going to go. The final chapter in the book is from Mallory's perspective and sets up the next instalment in the Timing is Everything Series, No Going Back, which is Mallory and Seth's story.

I enjoyed Moving Forward. The pace is fast, with some steamy love scenes and did I mention that Derek is a drummer ;) Definitely one for the more mature audience given some of the language and sex scenes.

HASH(0x9b830f84) out of 5 stars Too many F-bombs !! Oct. 15 2013
By Readsalot - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I know it may seem narrow to some but I just do not read books with the F-word used 48 times. I thought the description of the book sounded interesting. Surely the author has a better vocabulary than that. So, no, I did not finish the book.
