Cat Brown spends the first six years of her career as one of the lowest-ranking members of the Bretton Falls Ballet. Despite the dancer’s undisputable talent, artistic director Lillian Smith insists Cat is too short for a leading role. When Lillian is forced to retire, world-renowned ballet dancer Dmitri Fedorov takes over and casts Cat as the premier performer in his first production with the company. Cat struggles to fend off a host of distractions as she prepares for the most important role of her career: the most insurmountable of which is her instant attraction to the new boss.

Dmitri, once known for his theatrical performances and womanizing proclivities, disappears into seclusion after a horrific car accident shatters his knee and renders him unable to dance. Looking to escape the constant reminders of how far he’s fallen, Dmitri escapes to Bretton Falls in hopes of elevating the small ballet company there to international prestige. The task proves to be more challenging than Dmitri had bargained for when his surprising interest in Cat Brown becomes fodder for gossip among the company.

Cat and Dmitri both have a lot riding on their upcoming production of The Nutcracker, knowing that their careers depend upon the outcome. However, the biggest challenge they face will be staying away from one another.

Cat Brown is a struggling ballet artist – she’s one of the lowest ranking members of the Bretton Falls Ballet, not due to lack of talent but because artistic director Lillian Smith insists Cat is too short for a leading role. When Lillian retires, renowned ballet dance Dmitri Fedorov takes over and casts Cat as the lead performer. But her leading role is the least of her worries when Cat finds herself falling for her new boss.

Dmitri had to give up his dreams of dancing after a car accident shattered his knee. He finds his new goal in life: to bring international prestige to the small ballet company of Bretton Falls. But he never expected to be falling for his lead star…

I’ve read only a handful of ballet romances, but I’ve enjoyed most of them, and Sweet is no different. I really enjoyed the interactions between Cat and Dmitri – they had real chemistry that sizzled off the pages. The ballet world is an intriguing world that asks a lot of the people in it: discipline, dedication, talent, strength. The characters are great, and the writing was excellent too, and I really enjoyed this sweet romance.
