Dance with Me, book review

This novel is very well-written. The characters are flushed out and given great personality, even the minor ones. Normally I don’t like the feminine type homosexuals in books I read, I find them annoying and it reads too much like a teenage girl. Laurie is thankfully not like that at all. I can picture him doing the ballet and being feminine, like the books says, but not to overly annoying point. The mix is perfect and it makes the idea of the jock football player falling for him more believable.

The story of two such opposites falling in love is an interesting tale that takes several twists I didn’t see coming. The story does run out of juice at the three-fourths mark, once the two are a couple and the focus shifts to the football players old injury. The realism of the story and dull day-to-day grind wears on the plot a bit, but in the end the story is tied up well at the conclusion.

If you’re looking for a new take on the opposites attract love story, this is the novel to pick up!

Welcome to my blog! I live in Florida with my husband and our Kitty, a rescued Abyssinian. I have several novels published under the name "Nina Schluntz". I’m an avid movie goer, so most of my blog posts will be a review of the most recent movie I happened to see. Sometimes I’ll mix it up and read a book too. Or… my favorite, I’ll see the movie then read the book it was based on! View all posts by mizner13
