Hot damn! In book 1 these two characters barely spoke to each other. In this one…well let’s just say they get a bit more intimate. His rumba gets to know her cha-cha. They have sex!
With her law career becoming more nerve-wracking by the day, Rory must decide once and for all whether to leave it for her true twin passions – dance and her partner, Sasha. As she and Sasha begin to train for the largest competition in the world, Blackpool, their partnership, and their very lives, are threatened by Rory’s returning anorexia that had haunted her as a child ballet dancer, one of Sasha’s jealous and vengeful former students, and, most seriously, demons from Sasha’s past.
The intensity level in this story has increased about ten-fold from the first book, and in a variety of aspects. Rory’s job is becoming even more stressful, not to mention her training with Sasha for Blackpool, and the passion between her and Sasha has gone up another notch as well. While book 1 intrigues you, this one draws you in and doesn’t really let you go. Overall, a vast improvement from the previous novel, especially in regards to the relationship between Sasha and Rory. They take full advantage of their flexibility in the bedroom as well as on the dance floor.
Sasha: the Good and the Bad
These two have some incredibly sexy scenes together. From dancing naked to a bathtub scene involving bubbles and champagne, the detail used to describe each scene will have you reaching for a glass of ice water. This book also has one of the hottest build-ups to sex I’ve ever come across. It starts off with some foreplay on the dance floor including tantalizingly close hip movements, a blindfold, and a tremendous amount of neck and earlobe nibbling. Sasha is apparently a master of movement and seduction.
That’s the good part of Sasha. The bad part is that he can also be an unbelievably frustrating character at times. He’s controlling, demanding, and has a short temper when it comes to dancing. I certainly wouldn’t have the patience for it, and I sometimes questioned why Rory was putting up with it at all. But then he’d do another hip roll, and I’d be like, “Ah, I get it.”

Series: A Ballroom Romance, book 2. Can’t wait to see how everything comes together in the final book!
Should you read it? Yes, but just be sure you have about a gallon of ice water in the vicinity when you read it, because this book is hot, hot, hot! Just be forewarned that you’ll probably have the urge to yell at Sasha a few times.
Smut Level: Nothing like a bubble bath for two to relax the muscles after dancing. And prepare for some other amorous activities.
