Moving On: A Rainier Family Novel by Ashton Cade



My family gets the best of me. But sometimes they get on my nerves something awful. Always on my case about dating and finding someone to love, when they should know better than anyone else that I don't deserve any of that. Not anymore. Ever since I lost Gerry in the war, all of a sudden people think they can speak for him—but they're saying I should move on, forget him. That that's what he'd want. But they don't know how badly I betrayed him. How I left him when he needed me the most. It was Don't Ask, Don't Tell, and when he died, I took it to heart. When it comes to love, I'll never ask or tell again.
Trouble is, now Shane is in town and the way he makes me feel, it's hard to resist wanting to shout it from the rooftops. But I won't hurt another man the way I hurt Gerry—and when moving on is just another betrayal, the only way to do that is to not engage.


When I left corporate life to do something more meaningful, the last thing I thought I would find is love. But along comes Trevor Rainier. He's not only gorgeous and fun, but he's deeply compelling—there's more there than meets the eye, and what meets the eye is, well, let's say, delicious. He's helping me build my retreat for veterans, but he's keeping me guessing... the guy is blowing hot and cold so much so that I end up practically chasing him around Umberland just to get some answers. But just when things finally seem to be going right, our hiking trip goes tragically wrong, and even through my pain I can see he's triggered. The situation's forcing us together, but he's keeping me at a distance. Can he ever move on from his past and see what's standing in front of him?

Moving On is the fourth book in the Rainier Family series and can be happily read on its own. 63k words of sizzling heat, making it back in time for dinner, getting over the past, and as always, a whole big, bustling, small-town family waiting for its HEA.

My Rating - 5 Stars!

It's tough to explain how much I love Ashton Cade's Rainier Family Series. I love every book, every couple, and the whole family. With Moving On, Ashton has once again gifted us with a fantastic story.

It all starts when Trevor and Shane meet at the grocery store. Their tale is one of the heavy burdens of guilt, and the inability to forgive one's self. 

Trevor is drowning in shame, guilt and regret since losing his last boyfriend in the military. He's insecure, and feels both unworthy and undeserving of love. To make things even worse, no one knows about his ex. 

Shane is stubborn and determined to help Trevor. He's new to town and is trying to develop a camp for veterans and their families. He's sweet, down to earth and an all around good guy.

The attraction is strong, and the chemistry is even stronger. The face health issues, as they fight their attraction. They also have to deal with reality as it keeps getting in their way.

Moving On is a beautiful story of releasing yourself from pain and guilt, allowing love and happiness into your life. I love this Ashton Cade book, which is a fantastic addition to the Rainer Family series. It's full of sweet moments, funny moments and some steamy moments too.
