"Where are your leg warmers?"

Dancing lessons...? Hot-shot architect Ryder Fitzgerald can't think of anything worse! But he spots a silver lining in the form of smoking-hot Nadia Kent, who'll be teaching him his steps for his sister's wedding. Maybe this won't be so torturous, after all....

Nadia is staying well clear of Ryder--and never mind how jaw-droppingly hot he is. Sh

This has got to be my favorite Ally Blake to date. I am a sucker for a romance with a dancer as one of the main characters, so this book was an automatic read for me. However, the five star rating I'm giving it has nothing to do with the dancing aspect. That was an added bonus. I absolutely fell in love with Nadia and Ryder and their background became irrelevant. Not that the dance scenes weren't amazing. They were killer. A must-read for anyone who enjoys romantic fiction!

It’s been ten years since Ally Blake published her very first book, and that’s ten years packed with fun, sassy and delightful romances. The Dance Off is her 25th book for Mills & Boon, and I was totally psyched to see what she came up with.

Now, I’ve always been a little bit in love with dancing – especially when there’s handsome rugby players involved (oh Ben Cohen – next week’s Strictly Come Dancing final won’t be the same without you!!) – so having her heroine as a dance instructor was al

A lovely fun and sexy read from Ally Blake, one of my favourite Australian romance authors. The story is set in my hometown of Melbourne, which is always a winner with me. The heroine, Nadia, is a dancer who specialises in burlesque and aerial styles and who had danced in a famous troupe in Las Vegas. Now home in Melbourne, recovering from the fallout of a ruined relationship and career, she is working as a dance teacher.

The hero, the dark and sexy Ryder, has been roped in to take dance lessons

"Blake entertains with clever dialogue, a well-paced story and lyrical descriptions as she immerses readers in a dancer's world". (RT Book Reviews) rated 4 stars

Ally Blake's books are like snuggling under a doona on a chilly day: warm and soothing and just plain fun.

Thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Poor unsuspecting Ryder has no idea what is heading his way when he turns up for pre-wedding dance lessons. He is completely thrown by the tempestuous wild woman he meets. So much for bun-toting straight laced dance teachers. Nadia isn't exactly what Ryder was expecting.
Nadia isn't really interested in her plans being waylaid by a handsome devil of a man. She has plans for the future and doesn't intend to let anything or anyone get in the way of her goals. Hmm but darn it he sure does get under

I loved this book. She storyline flew seamlessly. The heroine is a dancer. She is introduced to the hero by his matchmaking sister. As the heroine teaches the guy to dance they fall in love. Very sweet romance.
I should have read up on this one a little more. I was looking for cute, sweet and fluffy and this was a very physically charged based romance. Not what I happened to be in the mood for and not really my thing.

Flirty and fun

It was a short, pleasant read with two characters I genuinely liked spending time with. It was a well enjoyed read.

This is a quick easy read. The heat between the two main characters is like a forest fire. Ryder and Nadia are both broken from bad parental role models so falling in love is a challenge. I can say I did not like how the book ended - Nadia ended of giving up her dream and when Ryder went to search for her in Las Vegas well for a rich guy he did not do much. The book is pure fantasy -- true Disney as everybody lives happily ever after.

3.5, it is a good book. I could connect with both the Hero and the Heroine. :)

Review Posted on

Sam wants her brother, Ryder Fitzgerald to walk her down the aisle. He’s always been there for her, when their father wasn’t – so he was the logical choice. But of course that means they have a dance together at the reception. Ryder simply can’t go to a group lesson every week, but Sam manages to set up solo lessons on another night – and he just can’t find an excuse to get out of it. Read More
Not a full review but I have to ask:
What is with the heroes of romance novels roaring? Are they lions?

It was intriguing and different from what ive been usually reading recently. x
Hero and heroine strike sparks off each other in good and bad ways from the very beginning. Good read.

I wanted to like it but I found it to be slow and boring. I usually read a book cover to cover before I start another book but I had to stop and read something else before finishing this one. I liked the plot and thought it was written well (easy to follow and read). I liked dialog and it seemed slim on it. There was definite chemistry between Ryder and Nadia but i just felt it dragged on.
