All roads lead to Rome when Ashley Solomons embarks on fulfilling her dream to become a world-class dancer. But there’s one person who stands in her way. “It`s a no from me,” Antonio Machiavelli.
When Antonio’s auditions for a lead principal end in wintry Cape Town, the last thing he expects is to have more than a knee-jerk reaction to an audition. Ashley not only verbally challenges him, but also translates her fire and cheekiness into an edge of your seat performance.
Can Antonio keep his distance from Ashley? Can Ashley focus on fulfilling her dream of becoming a lead principal? Or will love have its way?
In Dance of Love, Ashley Solomons has one dream: become a world-class dancer. For that, she auditions, but one person stands in her way. Antonio Machiavelli. When he tells her on, Ashley stands up to him, takes that no, and turns it into the best performance of a lifetime. Antonio is intrigued, but wonders if he’ll be able to keep his distance from the girl who just danced into his life.
Ashley wants and needs to focus on her dream, but when Antonio starts haunting her dreams too, she has to make some difficult choices.
I love movies that focus on dancing and romance, but I didn’t get to read a lot of books yet that dealt with this trope. Dance of Love does it quite well, though. The chapters are short and fast-paced, the scenes feel natural even the dancing scenes (I often find those hard to describe in books, or some descriptions are too technical / not in-depth enough) and for me, the most intriguing part of the book were the characters. Antonio and Ashley are strikingly similar yet vastly different, and that’s what is intriguing about them. The reader gets to know them more as the book progresses, and it’s easy to see these two together.
I would recommend this book if you enjoy sweet romance and of course, if you like dancing, or books having to do with dancing.
