Dex is faced with the dilemma of feeling a little too much for his best friend’s younger sister, Ava and as much as I can only imagine that, that isn’t exactly the best position to find yourself in I am also an advocate of the fact that, the heart wants what it wants and only a fool will try to deny it. So was Dex a fool?
I thought the whole story was a fun read, it was light hearted when it needed to be and I think this was only enhanced by the fact that the story was told from Dex’s point of view. I do love it when a guy lets you inside his head!
Their attempts to hide their relationship made me chuckle but it also elicited a snort of too if I am honest because for two seeming intelligent people much of the shenanigans between them seemed to lean towards being a tad on the childish side, although when they did get it together there was nothing childish about the heat they generated!!!
Well written, this was a quirky, enjoyable read that brought a smile to my face.
Dexter was a cheeky chappy, who knows how to dominate in business and with women, only the one women he want he can’t have, his business partner/BF’s little sister… Ava.
Both Dexter and Ava have had feelings for each other for a while. Neither taking it any further than friendship but when Ava calls Dex out on it, and the roller-coaster ride starts!
This was a great read, it had everything in it and brought out a lot of emotion in me. It was hot, it was emotional, it was also captivating. I was so intrigued by these characters and getting to know their individual personalities.
I would highly recommend this book!

A company that started with biologically engineered cologne for men that is specifically designed to produce supercharged pheromone production in women has to be the most brilliant stupid idea on the planet. Sort of like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Blondie’s smile turns evil. I half expect her to put a curse on us and fly from the room on a broomstick.
Rookie Moves provided an extremely clever premise, an entertaining storyline, and an afternoon of naughty fun. I totally relished the brilliant idea of nerds receiving makeovers. The storyline was amusing, bawdy, sensual, and emotive. Written from the first person POV of Dex, the main character was a sexy playboy that had been a high school nerd, chess champion, and a lonely intellectual genius of a child with cold and distant parents. Dex was one of the three founding members of Checkmate, the company that started off with cologne but expanded into a networked enterprise that polished the rough edges and assisted wealthy geeks with rebranding themselves into buff metro-sexuals. Dex was whip-smart and had a dirty mouth and an even filthier mind packed with X-rated fantasies starring Ava, the younger sister of his business partner/best friend. The f-bombs frequently flew once he learned it was a turn-on for Ava. Dex had been secretly lusting for Ava for over two years but unable to do anything about it as, well, best friend’s sister. Imagine his shock once he realized his fantasies had nothing on Ava’s reality. She was no mental slouch herself and brought out the best in him in every way, and my kindle was smoking!
This was a lighthearted and at times hilarious romance. I really enjoyed the story being completely told from Dex's point of view. There was plenty of heat and chemistry between Dex and Ava, and it was fun reading about them losing their different rookie cards. I did find though that both our hero and heroine acted on the more immature side in their attempts to hide/justify their relationship, but I understand why they felt compelled to do so. It just seemed harder to accept since Dex is supposedly a genius (but apparently lacked communication skills) and Ava is supposed to be a no filter, no holds barred kind of woman. Both characters are likeable though, and I loved them as a couple. You definitely root for them to get their happily ever after.
Rookie Moves was an enjoyable and steamy romance. Even though it was clear what direction this one was going to go in, I still found it fun and entertaining. I'm looking forward to reading about Oz in the next book.
