Back Cover Blurb:
Since being torn from his Siberian family as a child, Sasha’s life ambition has been to be world ballroom champion, a path he was destined for until his former partner pulled the plug on their partnership. She went on to win the world title, leaving him, without a partner equal in ability, forever in second place. The instant he lays eyes on Rory, he recognizes the depth of her passion and talent, and falls hard for her in more ways than one.
But she also reminds him of great pain from his past. He must not only overcome his own demons but convince her to leave her demanding law career, and all that she has worked for in her adult life, to train with him full-time in order for their partnership – both on and off the dance floor – to work.
This is part one in a continuing three-book series.
Although I enjoyed getting to know the characters, deeper development would have taken the story to another level. I didn’t feel as if I could connect with them enough to fully immerse myself in the story. The variety of personality types did give a sense of community throughout, and made for some interesting interpersonal relationships.
This was a fun and intriguing start to Plank’s Ballroom Romance series. I appreciated the way in which she developed the world in which her characters live. I’m quite intrigued to see what happens next.
