Book Description:

After her long-time dance partner Tony is injured, Cassidy Downs has only a matter of weeks to find a new partner to remain eligible to compete in the All City Dance Off.
When she discovers Giovanni, a talented and classically trained member of a dance conservatory, Cassidy convinces him to become her new partner despite his reluctance to do so.
As the competition nears, neither Cassidy nor Giovanni can deny the strong attraction building between them.

My Review

After quite some time of absence, I am happy to be back with a book review. Well, not quite a book, but a small novella – 56 pages of sparks, attraction, dance and music! Well, call me intrigued!

I loved this story and I loved how the relationship is presented professionally and personally. We have Cassidy and Giovanni getting to know each other as dance partners and as a little bit more, maybe. There is little I can say without spoiling the events, but I can tell you that you won’t regret reading this. It’s a quick story, with a good plot.

The only downside is that it’s so short! And there is so much to explore. I wanted to see this chemistry put into light and I wanted to feel their rhythm combined with their relationship. So 4 stars on my end, but with an extra twinkle 🙂 Happy reading!
