Kinda like a Dancing With the Stars thing with love very much involved. Which means the MC s in love can boogie outside of practice and seduce each other. Sexy. Very good book

What a fun story! I am not a big reality TV fan, and have never watched DWTS, but this book is absolutely enjoyable...and makes me curious to indulge!

Olivier is a pro rugby player whose dashing good looks and sultry French accent is sure to be catnip for the female viewership, despite his relative anonymity. Thing is, Olivier's gay. And, in the closet. He doesn't know how being out will affect his opportunities in his sport, and he really doesn't want to become the poster boy for gay rugby, eit

Welcome to Dance Off, where stars and pros dance latin and ballroom dances to earn money for the charity of their choice. Sound a lot like Dancing with the Stars? Well, that’s because it is a lot like Dancing with the Stars, just with charities and fictional stars.

This season on Dance Off, we have JC Webster, Olympic swimmer and gold medal winner, and Olivier Gautier, pro rugby player, along with a Miss Amer

Sweet and low angst story based around a show similar to Dancing with the Stars (or Strictly Come Dancing for us Brits).
Started off with a multitude of POVs but thankfully this soon settled down to just the two MCs. It did ping pong between them within scenes which I'm not really used to anymore but it was easy enough to follow.
I would have liked a little more conflict for such a long read but it was cute and left a smile on my face and that's always good.

This seemed awkward when I first started reading, like it couldn't figure out its tone. But as I read more, I settled into the style and found myself cheering on this dancing pair of elite sportsman.

I was glad we got so much of the dancing as we did. It would have been easy to leave those sections off-page. There was even some smexy times left off page *gasp* Imagine.

Anyway, I liked it quite it a lot.

this book was almost a parody of the show Dancing with the Stars . Celebrity compete in a dancing show. Couples dance for a charity organization. JC and Olivier are two contestants in the show who fall in love with each other during the season.

I liked the charity organization part of the book.

It was a nice read, a little unrealistic sometimes but enjoyable nonetheless.

Note: This book was provided to me by the publisher through Hearts on Fire Reviews in exchange for an impartial review.

What a wonderfully pleasant story! This book made me happy, putting me in a good mood and keeping me there throughout the story. Better than a trip to the spa, I found it enjoyable and relaxing and just plain fun to read.

Based loosely on the popular reality TV dance show, this story centers around the competitors in the show, “Dance Off”. Each star is dancing for a charity, g

4 star review by Vicki

What a fun story! I am a fan of Dancing with the Stars, and this book is set around a very similar show, with a romance added in.

JC Webster, Olympic swimmer, has accepted a position as a “star” on Dance off, a dance competition show on TV. He’s very athletic, but not a dancer so he’s excited to meet his partner and get started dancing. What he doesn’t expect is to find himself attracted to fellow competitor Olivier Gautier, a French rugby player. JC is open about his bisexu

So this was a character driven book. You either liked the character or you didn’t and each character brought something to the story. For example Luis was a character that you learned about accepting who you are and embracing it. He was married to a wonderful man and although it was known amongst the pro dancers it was kept low key so they could be together and not have it be a big deal for everyone. Deborah taught us about perserverence and so did Freddy. Freddy was a great guy and he showed us ...more

Dance Off is a behind-the-scene look at a television dance competition like Dancing With the Stars. This book focuses on two main characters and then the entourage of other dances who are part of the dance show. It is a great premise, and the follow through is generally good. But I want to mention a couple of pet peeves . . . .

Authors that take for granted that readers know words from different languages. In this book, there are words and phrases that are written in French and Spanish -- a lot

This was such a fun read! I love pretty much anything dance related and this hit all the right spots for me. I really enjoyed both characters and the way their story evolved. It felt natural, not forced, and it was nice to have a story that played on the small difficulties they encountered because of the setting they're in and the fact that only one of them is out. No forced angst, it just felt like a slice of life. I also really liked the other characters around them, especially JC's family and ...more

As a big Strictly fan, this was a must read for me!
I did enjoy it, lots of characters as the show starts but luckily they do get whittled down!
It is a very insular book as the cast are sequestered to live and train in the same place so all action is really there and on the show.
I enjoyed the show bits - very Strictly with a very Bruno like Eduoardo, technical Len Henrietta but no Fab-u-luss Darling Craig! And having the contestants view of the show was good.
Olivier and JC were nice together, the

I will start off by saying that I am not really big on reality tv. I have never watched DWTS, but I enjoyed this book. It was slow at first, but I got into it.

The chemistry between both JC and Oliver is amazing, and with every slide of the page, I wanted to read about their shared moments. You felt their emotions, their struggle and got to see them think jealous thoughts as the other danced with their dance partners.

When they danced together OMG. I thought they would out themselves for real.

this was better than I feared it would be. the main problems was a rush on the dance competition. the authors skipped over whole weeks and when they did write the dance scene. it was mostly about how seeing the other is in the dance and how lustful it makes them

Dancing with the Stars M/M version. The story line was okay for a dance novel, not my speed but a great read non the less.
