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.Was this review helpful?

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.
