She was hidden from the world. Then he arrived.
An emotional new novel from six-time USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy
For four years, I’ve lived in almost total seclusion. Homeschooled, forbidden from social media, seeing no one other than the dancers at Dreamcatcher Academy, where I teach ballet to little girls in wheelchairs.
Then Blitz arrives.
He’s the disgraced host of Dance Blitz, a bawdy reality show where Blitz sleeps with as many dancers as possible while looking for his perfect partner.
At least he was. A few weeks ago, he got kicked off his own show.
He’s at my academy for a publicity stunt, and my wheelchair ballerinas are his ticket back into the public’s good graces.
I intend to hate him and stay as far away as possible. But when he looks at me, I can’t resist. Before I realize what’s happened, we’re sneaking into back rooms, dancing, kissing, planning dates away from the cameras and the wrath of my family.
But I’m afraid. I have a secret at the academy, a small, wonderful, terrible secret, and if I stay with Blitz, the world will find out.
Forbidden Dance is a full-length standalone HEA, although fans who fall in love with Blitz and Livia can continue the series to follow more of their love story
In an Oyster Shell – A steamy romance that will leave you feeling exhilarated.
The Pearls – I liked that there was the theme of dancing. Dancing is what is the background to the whole love story. The author really seems to know what she’s talking about with all of the names of the moves and processes of dancing. I liked that she brought two people together that come from different disciplines of dancing it added a nice complexity to the story.
The romance was hot. Livia is an innocent who is shut away from the world most of the time except for dance. Blitz was ashamed reality star looking to fall back into the good graces of the public. They made an unlikely couple because of Livia’s situation. She had a controlling father who didn’t want such a relationship to happen. They defy all odds and find each other despite the limitations. It was nice though a bit nerve-wracking at times because Livia had to sneak around and you never knew if she was going to get caught.
The characters were distinctive and well-developed. Livia really came into her own in this story. She learned to stand up to her family and go after what she really wanted. Blitz was an unexpected character. His public persona is a playboy douche but he’s really a sweet guy at least Livia brings that out in him.
I liked the book there were some provocative scenes, not my favorite but they don’t overpower the story. They have their place.
The Sand – The controlling father made me uncomfortable but was necessary for this story.
