  • Quite a promising book on ballroom dance

    Poor Rory; her story often reminds me of the person I was myself; I used to write stories and poems in college but the harsh realities of life forced me to work hard for a living. "Rory’s once promising ballet career was destroyed by family tragedy and illness. She turned her life around and became a lawyer. Now at the start of her legal career, she lacks passion in her work and self-confidence in her abilities." If you are in Rory's shoes: someone who is doing something she does not want to do, and would prefer doings something else - someone whose job does not match with her ambition - I am sure you would be able to not only relate to Rory's character but also sympathize with her. Sasha's past has not been that great either. Together they made good dance partners no doubt; the book tries hard to stress on the rock solid chemistry they both share, maybe even more so because "she also reminds him of great pain from his past". I have never been to a ballroom dance before, but this book really made me feel that I know ballroom dancers like the back of my hand. The characters' emotions have been portrayed quite realistically with decent dialog: “I’m already taking three privates a week. And Sasha’s group class. Sasha’s hooked me.” My heart sank. They let her take his group class that was totally advanced? I took a sip of my gimlet. It was very tart. It suited this conversation. I took another swig. “He’s such a great dancer. What’s he like as a teacher?” I found myself saying. “Please. Great is far too much of an understatement,” she said, still without any facial expression. I wondered if she was capable of moving her facial muscles. “He’s an even more excellent teacher. So kind and patient and encouraging. He’s already asked me to be his pro/am partner in a competition in Orange County next month.” If only the author would have given Rory's character some more depth, she could have bought a little bit more of my sympathy for her heroine; why would such a talented dancer act like a weakling all the time is beyond me. The male characters mostly acted like jerks, sometimes without reason. The romance was also underdeveloped and treated more in a 'matter of fact' manner. The second section of the book largely dragged on; with proper edits, the author could have condensed the material in fewer pages. Maybe if the author had used multiple viewpoints instead of just one, some of these things could be taken care of to an extent. If you want to feel vicariously about what it means to be a ballroom dancer, or if you merely want to get acquainted with the atmosphere of ballrooms then this is a very good book for you.

  • Catch the FEVER (part 1)!

    Tonya Plank's FEVER (INFECTIOUS RHYTHM series) is a sexy contemporary ballroom romance in three parts that delivers real characters, a fascinating look into the scandalous competitive ballroom dance scene and PASSION - on the dance floor AND in the bedroom. Rory is an L.A. lawyer whose love of dance is reignited when she meets ballroom champion Sasha at her boyfriend's holiday party. Sparks fly, dance lessons ensue and Rory faces the struggles and uncertainty of following one's dreams. The steady build-up of Rory and Sasha's personal and professional relationship created great sexual tension! And, the bold secondary story lines that touch on eating disorders and criminal law are thoroughly engaging.

  • BEAUtiful!

    There's not a thing about this book that I don't absolutely love. It was impossible to leave my phone for more that 10mins at a time. Absolutely worth my every minute.

  • Gives me a headache

    I love dance moves but I could not read after about half the book. 5he Heroine if she can be called that is weak,annoying and has no self esteem. Each time she makes observations like "I forgot to eat" or "I couldn't possibly finish that" I get a headache. She is walking anoxia not nearly had it but full blown. Her mother's fear was well found.

    Thanks for your feedback!
