    Heartwarming and timely romance

    Enjoy the Dance is the second story in the contemporary romance series Dancing by Heidi Cullinan. I’ve not yet had the pleasure of reading the first book in the series, but the presence of Ed and Laurie as secondary characters in this one has definitely convinced me to move it up my TBR. This story strikes a timely balance between the politics of today and a romance between two very different people who find their way to a happy ending. Since we are in the middle of an election year, where topics such as immigration and LGBTQ marriage equality rights are still at the forefront, I found this snapshot of the time before the 2012 election an interesting look back at policies in the United States then and now. Though much of the story takes place right around that election period, the second half also brings to light some timely legislation that has since passed. While politics might not be everyone’s favourite topic, I really enjoyed how it was an integral part of the story here. Tomas and his sister have legal status in the United States, but his parents are undocumented immigrants, and always aware of the threat of deportation. With the child welfare system aware of the problems Tomas’s sister has raising her children, it’s an extra headache for Tomas, worrying about who will show up on his doorstep. Though he never thought it would be Duon, that situation turns out to be the catalyst to push Spenser and Tomas to deal with the attraction between them, never fully acknowledged in their brief neighbourly meetings until now. Amid the political turmoil, there is also a sweet slow burn romance that develops between Spenser and Tomas. Tomas worries that Spenser won’t be patient with all the time he must spend working to support his family. For Spenser though, that’s not so much an issue as is his own reluctance to get emotionally involved. He’s been through enough situations in his life where trusting others led to naught, and he’s reluctant to open himself up to Tomas, at least at first. But gradually they come to share their thoughts and feelings with each other. As well, there are some sexy love scenes between the couple once things have progressed, an intimacy that neither takes lightly. We get some great scenes with secondary characters along the way, in particular Ed and Laurie and other friends. The dancing scenes are wonderful, describing a variety of dance styles and resulting in a nice musical soundtrack running through my head while reading the book. All in all, it’s a wonderfully entertaining and heartwarming romance with a well earned happy ending.
