If you’re a fan of believeable menages (MMF) and sweaty sexy dancing both on and off the dance floor, this is perfect for you! ~ Guilty Pleasures
Lizzie Maynes’s torn ACL threatens more than her career as an international Latin ballroom champion. During her lengthy recovery, her longtime professional partner, Dima Turgenev, has been dancing at the Chelsea District’s most notorious burlesque, Club Devant. More than just dancing, he’s been experimenting with shocking new moves that make her want to pull him off stage and get back on tour as soon as possible–the better to keep their successful friendship safe.
Dima knows all about safety, and the lack thereof, because he blames himself for Lizzie’s injury. Far from the pressures of competition, Club Devant is the perfect creative venue to rebuild his rattled confidence. He’d love for Lizzie to join him and revel in the club’s intoxicating freedoms. By exploring the new sensual energy simmering between them, they could become more than friends.
Paul Reeves, a recently divorced Texan starting over in the Big Apple, is all for joining the dancers as they blaze through sexual boundaries. But he also knows their sizzling trio won’t last. Lizzie and Dima belong together. Before the last sparks fade, he plans to transform two stubborn friends into lasting lovers–one raunchy lesson at a time.
Warning: Burlesque meets ballroom in this f***ing sexy book when a smoldering Russian dance god and a blonde firecracker with hips possessed by the devil share a sunny, filthy-minded Texan–for just a dance or two.
This is first book in a new series, Club Devant, by the writing team know as Katie Porter. This is my first title by the author and I loved it!
I was somewhat expecting a Dancing with The Stars type setting. All I got to say is this way better! It’s got the sizzling partnership of two competitive dancers with the kind of chemistry championships are made of. There’s even a fun lovin’ Texas cowboy to spice up the connection, and then the fireworks ensue.
Lots of passion, and more exciting dancing than I would have thought possible in a book. You could feel the performances and emotion during the dance sequences.
I loved the references to Latin music and dance. The fact that Latin dance performers have more hips and curves than many other dancers. One of the sexier ones mentioned is the Bachata, and if you haven’t heard any Bachata tunes, I suggest you give them a shot. Super sensual and lots of tropical flare: Romeo Santos of Aventura isn’t too hard on the eyes either!
I was somewhat expecting Dima to be effeminate knowing he’s bisexual and also a dancer going into this, but I never got that feeling while reading. He’s a dominant force with lots of ‘control’ in his movements and emotions. It was so sexy to finally see the top of his level head blow off…
Overall a great start to a steamy new series. Very impressed with this new to me duo – Katie Porter. I’m heading over to buy their other series called Vegas Top Guns, right now! If you’re a fan of believeable menages (MMF) and sweaty sexy dancing both on and off the dance floor, this is perfect for you!
