I love any story with a MC who is a dancer. This sweet holiday read was lovely, and I wanted more!
Jed and Henri were definitely a case of opposites attract. Jed is a business owner who’s company does janitorial work and building maintenance. The blurb is a little bit misleading only because Jed is not really a “janitor“ he mostly oversees his employees who do the work. He’s an intimidating bear of a man, but inside he’s a fluffy marshmallow.
Henri is a world renowned ballet dancer who ends up in Oregon for a Christmas show. He’s a little bit beaten down by the politics of ballet and the pressure he’s under from those around him.
I enjoyed the storyline of the “dominant toppy twink” and the “burly but submissive bear”, it’s a favorite of mine for sure. Overall this is a great read and well written for a relatively short holiday romance. I would have loved to see more character development for both main characters and the storyline itself. I would have appreciated an epilogue at the end as well. But if you like dancers, and you’re looking for a sweet Christmas story that’s a quick read, this book is a good choice!
Heat: 7/10 (starts with a hookup and builds from there)
Character development: 6/10 (I would have appreciated more background on both Henri and Jed, but they are good characters for such a short book)
Writing: 8/10 (smooth writing style, easy to read)
Overall 8/10 (would recommend)
