She was hidden from the world. Then he arrived.
An emotional new novel from six-time USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy

For four years, I’ve lived in almost total seclusion. Homeschooled, forbidden from social media, seeing no one other than the dancers at Dreamcatcher Academy, where I teach ballet to little girls in wheelchairs.

Then Blitz arrives.

He’s the disgraced host of Dance Blitz, a bawdy reality show where Blitz sleeps with as many dancers as possible while looking for his perfect partner.

At least he was. A few weeks ago, he got kicked off his own show.

He’s at my academy for a publicity stunt, and my wheelchair ballerinas are his ticket back into the public’s good graces.

I intend to hate him and stay as far away as possible. But when he looks at me, I can’t resist. Before I realize what’s happened, we’re sneaking into back rooms, dancing, kissing, planning dates away from the cameras and the wrath of my family.

But I’m afraid. I have a secret at the academy, a small, wonderful, terrible secret, and if I stay with Blitz, the world will find out.
Forbidden Dance is a full-length standalone HEA, although fans who fall in love with Blitz and Livia can continue the series to follow more of their love story

For the past four years, Livie has been kept under the close supervision of her very strict parents. She made a mistake at 15, that caused her parents to move them, homeschool only, no friends, no electronics. She is allowed to take ballet classes at Dreamcatcher Dance Studios. Blitz is the bad boy of Dance. He is back home letting some bad publicity die down and teaching dance classes so his reality show doesn’t get cancelled. One kiss and a dance are all it takes to spark things between Livie and Blitz. Blitz says he wants to be with no one but Livie. Has he changed his womanizing ways? What will happen if Livie’s parents find out?

Forbidden Dance is the first book I have read by Deanna Roy. It is captivating and I loved the story and the characters. I hope to read more in the series.

Rating: 4 stars
