Fever (A Ballroom Romance, Book One) {Book Review}

Title: Fever {A Ballroom Romance Book One}

Author: Tonya Plank

Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance

Book Description:

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. But when she meets gorgeous, mysterious Russian ballroom dancer, Sasha, at a firm holiday party, her passions for life and dance are immediately re-kindled.

Since being torn from his Siberian family as a child, Sasha’s life ambition has been to be world ballroom champion, a path he was destined for until his former partner pulled the plug on their partnership. She went on to win the world title, leaving him, without a partner equal in ability, forever in second place. The instant he lays eyes on Rory, he recognizes the depth of her passion and talent, and falls hard for her in more ways than one.

But she also reminds him of great pain from his past. He must not only overcome his own demons but convince her to leave her demanding law career, and all that she has worked for in her adult life, to train with him full-time in order for their partnership – both on and off the dance floor – to work.  

This is part one in a continuing three-book series.

My Review:

This is the first book I've read from this author. Fever {A Ballroom Romance}  is a sexy contemporary ballroom romance that comes in three parts. I really  that the characters feel real. That you get swept away in the passion of the ballroom dancing.

I really liked Rory. She was a refreshing lead female character. She's a 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! I thought this was a throughly enjoyable. The author did a wonderful job with the plot and with lightly touching on a sensitive subject. 

I'm giving this book 4 out of 5 stars!!!!! 

You can purchase Fever on AmazonB & NKobo and iBooks
