Publisher's Summary

Jared Hartley is happy. He has a starring role in a popular West End musical, great friends, adoring fans and his own flat in Central London. A relationship is not something he has ever really wanted. Making big plans for the future is not in his nature - Jared is content with his single status and enjoying all the benefits of that lifestyle.
He doesn't even realise something is missing in his life. Until he meets Fenix.
Fenix Bergman has a dream – to perform on Broadway. When he gets offered the lead role in Poison – a new musical based in London, he accepts, immediately recognising the huge potential of the show.
Fenix thinks he has his life completely figured out – he will move to London, help Poison become the new West End hit and bide his time until Broadway comes knocking on his door. He has never wished for anything else but proving to himself and the world that he is a performer worthy of the biggest theatre stage.
Until he meets Jared.
Jared and Fenix's lives collide and they fill each other's missing pieces. Neither of them expects to feel so much, so fast for the other.
Neither of them expects to need someone so badly when love hasn't even been in their plans. But when Fenix's star becomes too bright for London, will the dream he's chased all his life ruin the dream he's holding in his hands? Will he survive getting everything he's ever wanted? Will Jared?
Contains explicit sexual content, graphic language and adult themes. Recommended for readers 18+ only.

A very enjoyable story

Jared and Fenix fall hard and fast from the start. It’s a case of love or lust at first sight when the two stars share a dressing room at the Queen Vic theatre in London. There’s an intense connection between them as they fall into bed and in love. The two young men are inseparable and share many hot and steamy scenes together. You sense their happiness and the desire to live in each other’s pockets. On the whole, things move swiftly and easily for them. I especially liked the friction and jealousy between Adam—Jared’s best friend—and Fenix.

Everything is wonderful as they live together and share their lives, but of course, this is shattered when Fenix gets his Broadway dream fulfilled. Almost without a second thought for their relationship, he accepts and all contact between the two lovers ceases. Jared didn’t fight for him either. They both place their careers first. I found it hard to understand why they gave up on their relationship immediately and didn’t even remain in contact as friends. It made me question their love and want to bash their heads together. But that's all part of the angst and sorrow. Deep down, they knew they loved each other and wanted to be together, but it took over two years of heartache and tears before they are eventually reunited. This part of this story is relatively short, but for me it was the most emotional. I would have liked further scenes showing how the two men suffered while they were apart.

More drama follows as the story reaches it ending. The epilogue jumps eight years ahead and is a little at odds with most of the story and their characters, but by then these two men had matured and had new dreams for their future.

The narration of the story by Todd Smith works well for Teodora’s storytelling style of writing. He speaks clearly and narrates at a steady pace. His voice suits the West End setting and the various characters’ personalities. He helped bring them to life for me.

Overall, I enjoyed listening to this engaging story. I am intrigued to hear Adam’s story next in Mask and would like to know more of his thoughts on Jared and Fenix’s relationship. I hope he gets his happy ever after too.

amazing!!!

Would you listen to Dance again? Why?

Yes! Definitely! I love the narrator's voice, but also the quality of the sound of the whole book was superb. It's already one of my favourite booksbooks, so I'm so happy it got an audio version!


What was one of the most memorable moments of Dance?

Oh, gosh, how can I choose?? I love so many moments in this book, but the musical performances were so beautifully described that I felt I was in the theatre myself.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

The chemistry between Jared and Fenix is electrifying! Every scene between them was amazing.


Any additional comments?

If you're a fan of hot mm romance, you'll love Dance. It's such a beautiful, sexy story, and so different from everything else in the genre. Definitely recommend.
