    Not great

    I had a heck of a time getting through the first 70 pages. It seemed they dragged on forever. I hated that the heroine's weight was such an issue. It kept popping up constantly (over and over). However, after that the story picked up and was really cute and funny. Sorry i couldn't give more stars. ##

    What again!

    I really like this author, especially the "Accidental Series", but this latest series is bad. I read the first story and it was just okay. When the second story came out, the story outline was the same as the first cheating spouse and exwife left with no money or self confidence. Oh and she also has to move into a retirement with relative. Ms. Cassidy start a new series or return to the old ones they were good!

    What happens when everything that you have ever known is cruelly

    What happens when everything that you have ever known is cruelly ripped away, leaving you with nothing but the clothes on your back? That is what Melina must recover from when her life-sucking husband tosses aside their marriage to hop in the sack with a much younger woman. Melina losses her home, her precious dance studio, her students and everything that has ever meant anything to her in a blink of an eye – and in front of the entire world.

    Moving in with her father, Melina takes a job at a retirement community where she meets a very colorful cast of characters. Before she knows it, she meets the hunky and yummy Drew, the nephew of one of the orneriest ladies at the retirement community. When a new job teaching boys at a school for geniuses brings her even closer to Drew, fireworks explode and heat ignites.

    Both Melina and Drew have many past issues that they must try to come to terms with; Melina, her divorce and humiliation, Drew, a divorce from an alcoholic woman and mother of his child. These issues contribute a good dose of tension throughout the story. I do have to say that there were a few times that I wanted to slap both Drew and Melina upside the head. Why? For the simple fact that there were times that they couldn’t see just what they had in front of them, as far as their relationship. Drew’s hang-up on money was frustrating and Melina’s stubbornness toward Drew was frustrating. Did this take away from the story? Not at all. It was a wonderful way to add antagonism and conflict to the story. There were times, however, where I found myself a bit exhausted by both of the characters – emotionally.

    Dakota Cassidy does an excellent job of weaving a story that is entertaining, lively and will hook the reader in completely. I loved Ms. Cassidy’s style of writing and her writing voice in Waltz This Way. The character development was wonderful and I found myself truly bonding with not only the main characters, but also the secondary characters of Nate, Drew’s son and Myriam, Drew’s aunt, as well as many of the others. Each of their personalities was very distinct and real.

    I have to also admit that I absolutely loved the chemistry between Drew and Melina. From the moment these two met, there was attraction of the animalistic nature. Sizzle and intense heat run rampant throughout Waltz This Way. I do want to say that this is not in a way that is truly erotic, but it will get your heart pumping and your libido revving.

    Overall what are my thoughts on Waltz This Way? Tons of fun, hot, spicy and robust, with bits of inspiration sprinkled on top. I have not read the other two books in this series, but after reading this one, I am going to be adding them to my “to read” list immediately. I highly recommend Waltz This Way to anyone looking for a fun read to indulge in and to lose themselves within. Review by April. Book Provided by Good Choice Reading ARC Tours.

    Opposites attract...

    My Review:

    I have absolutely loved the trophy wives series by Dakota Cassidy. This is book #3 in the series and I honestly think that it has been the absolute best in the series. There was something about this book that touched me deeper than the other two did. I think that a lot of it had to do with the addition of the boy geniuses at the school where Mel teaches, especially Nate, Drew's son. Mel has a wicked sense of humor and every single time she interacted with these boys, I giggled about it. I liked the perspective that Nate had to add to the story and the twists that his part of the story brought to the story. As a genius, he is so level-headed about his approach to Drew and Mel's feelings and reactions to each the age of 12, it was completely endearing. I really liked his character.

    Drew and Mel are polar opposites. She's a ballroom dancing champ, hired by his son's private school to teach the boys how to waltz. Drew is a handyman and carpenter and is furious when he finds out that his son's supposed high-level of education includes something as "frivolous" as dance. Mel, obviously, takes a little offense at the fact that he disses her craft that she loves like that. From there things get a little testy between the two, despite their mutual attraction. They both have been divorced and both have their scars because of that. I like the way that Dakota made the real issues in this one belong to Drew. Mel has her issues too, but it is really Drew that learns and grows in this book.

    There are some really sweet scenes in this book....the ones that take place in the tree house are my favorite. I enjoyed getting to watch the progression, as rocky as it is, of the relationship between these two. I love that Mel is fairly emotionally stable (at least, after the first date night/coffee shop fiasco.) She is a little more emotionally stable than most of Dakota's trophy wives usually are right after their divorces. It was nice that there didn't seem to be quite so much crazy from the female side of the relationship...although, don't get me wrong. There was plenty of crazy in this book. It is still a Dakota book. ;o)

    As is usual for all of Dakota's books, there was a FABULOUS group of supporting characters in this one....Maxine, Frankie & Jasmine, the ex-trophy wives from the other two books. But there were also some great new characters in this one...Jackie and Neil (Mel's best friends,) Myriam (Drew's trouble-making aunt,) and even Stan (Mel's ex.)

    Overall, I highly recommend this one. I am not even a fan of the reality dancing shows or ballroom dancing and I still thoroughly enjoyed the story line in this book. Mel is funny. Drew is sexy. Nate is smart and so mature. It was simply fabulous and more than a little sexy too!! A+ for this book!!
