If there’s one thing that chases you and never lets you go, it’s fame.
Despite being a painfully shy and sheltered ballet student, three months ago I charged onto one of the most popular TV reality shows in the world and changed the course of five lives.
Mine, when I accepted the star of the show, Blitz Craven, as my lover and dance partner.
Blitz’s, just as he was about to walk away from his hard-won career.
And three girls who were the finalists on the show.
Those girls are back to get their vengeance, and as usual, the producers of the show are in it for the ratings.
So now I have a choice: let each of them have another shot at my lover.
Or take them on myself.
But Blitz is mine.
Wicked Dance is book three of the Lovers Dance series, which ends with book five, Final Dance. Each book is full length and stands alone, but should be read in series order to avoid spoilers.
You would think, given the number of books that I have read for this blog, that I would know by now that I shouldn’t expect any book to simply follow an established pattern; that I shouldn’t pre-judge the plot and the characters’ reactions.
Once again, the author has delivered a story with a different voice to it. Livia is growing, not only in her relationship with Blitz, but also in her own confidence as a person. I worried what was going to happen to this couple as a result of the very specific and public pressures that they faced in this volume. I feel invested in their story. I want them to buck the trend.
And I’m pleased to say that, although the author kept me on edge for much of this book, ultimately, she delivered a story which managed to subtly buck the expected trend – to provide a dramatic break which did not play out as I thought it would.
Once again, a joy to read.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
