Book Review – Dance for Me

Published 16/06/2013 by leannecrabtree


Name: Dance for Me

Author: Helena Newbury

Genre: Contemporary Romance, New Adult

Release Date: 24th June 2013

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

I received this ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This is about Natasha, a dancer–ballet being her favourite–who goes to an audition for a role in an advert but gets distracted during the audition by someone running into the room. Darrell, the distractor, is captivated by her and the ballet she performs and asks her to dance for him as his muse so he can figure out a way to make his latest project work.

Darrell was rather intriguing from the start and I liked how we saw him from Natasha’s POV first before seeing how he came to be at the audition from his own POV.

Helena must have done ballet at some point or this is one really well researched book.

Several chapters had me wanting to look online at the moves Natasha was performing with how well they were written; how beautiful it all sounded. Maybe it was Natasha’s feelings at those points in the book that made them seem so charged and captivating. And this coming from someone who has never had an interest in ballet.

I liked Clarrisa. And Neil. And Jasmine. I liked everything!

Would recommend you read this if you like a nice love story. It certainly had me captivated from early on.
