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.
My review: When I heard that this was going to be made into a a series, I leapt at the chance to read Forbidden Dance. I love reading stories that involve dancing/the main character being a dancer. Livia has been living under house arrest for four years after a scandal that rocked her life. Her strict father doesn’t allow any form of social media or telephone to use but does allow her to study ballet. It’s during a ballet class that she meets Blitz, the host of a reality TV show that he left in disgrace from. When their paths cross, Livia has to decide whether to stay on her family’s good side or break the rules so that she can experience a taste of freedom.
I loved reading the whole ballet aspects throughout and felt Livia’s pain as she had to deal with making choices for her future. It was a quick, easy read to get into. I found Blitz’s character to be a little bit shady at times but understood that this was part of his persona as a disgraced host. The ending was emotional and exciting to witness. But I’m not going to spoil it for you 😉
The second and third books are being released soon which I can’t wait to read!
