Aiight, I think I'm emotionally stable enough to write this review without turning it into a free therapy session (for me) or a she's-driving-me-to-drink-pls-shut-her-up-and-where's-the-fucking-vodka-when-you-need-it session (for you).

But Woods is one of my absolute favorite heroes from my books, and I hope lots of people love him, too.

Logan Cassidy was a dancer turned an up and coming pop star. For most of her career, she put herself into a perfectly crafted mold until the new dancer Woods Donahue opened her eyes to other possibilities.

If there’s one thing this book excelled at, it’s the explosive chemistry between the main characters. The intensity permeated right from the beginning and carried throughout the book. This helped make the sex scenes scorching.

Funny. Steamy. Alluring. Exhilarating. Gutsy. Moving. Billowing
And still not enough adjectives to correctly describe the sizzling chemistry that sets the stage and the pages on fire!!
Stylo has written an enthralling love story set on soft crooning songs and panty melting erotic moves in the dance floor. I was so turned on reading them I wish I was Logan Cassidy-the tired popstar and oh-so-delicious as michele morrone, Woods Donahue.

Slow Dancing exceeds my expectations. The characters are very well thought of; the interaction between them is realistic, bold, sarcastic, and witty. Logan Cassidy is one character I truly enjoy reading. The story is exciting, angsty, and the passion between Logan and Woods are sexy. A very enjoyable book with a wholly satisfying ending. One of my best read from this author.

The hero is pansexual. There are scenes of him making out with a guy but no explicit M/M sex scenes.

This is a slow, sweet, sexy, shimmy of a story. When you find the one, sometimes it’s complicated. It can be full of doubt and confusion but also filled with passion and a sense of calm. I really must say that I loved the story. I liked the slow burn and pace of the story. The author brought the dance world alive with this story. I felt as if I was dancing and touring with Logan Cassidy.

This story is a romance. But it opens up on sexuality of individuals. I a

"I want this more than I'm afraid of it."

I have always said I love when a book challenges me. Whether it's my thought process or my emotions, I want to read a book that makes me think about the consequences or the possibilities of what may be or what could have been. So when I originally saw the words that Stylo Fantôme put out about this book, I knew it was just the challenge I needed from her. She originally wrote:

Stylo Fantome has this magical way of story telling that really draws readers into worlds they may otherwise not have been exposed to yet and that's most definitely the case for me in Slow Dancing. This tale is as alluring and charming as it is funny and full of friendship and love. It's unique with low angst and engaging, colorful characters that you'll root for from begin

Logan has been a dancer since she was a young girl, it has always been her passion. She quickly went from a professional back-up dancer to a famous pop star after one singing performance thrust her into the spotlight. Ever since then she has been told what she can and can’t be, feeling controlled by her manager and pushed into a direction she really doesn’t feel comfortable going in.

Woods has a similar background story to Logan, dancing has been all he has ever known and he is very talented. Whe

This is my very first Queer book. When I started this book off I had no idea that Woods, the main guy is Queer. So when she was describing how hot he was while he was making out with another GUY, I was like okay cool all hot guys are gay, unfortunately. And then Wood’s kept on flirting with her and I was like hold up baby boy what is happening here, I don’t think this boy is gay, maybe Bi but definitely not into just dicks.

What a breath of fresh air! Are you tired of the usual romance trope? Then read this amazing new release from Stylo Fantome!
Logan has to be one of the most relatable and good natured heroines out there!!! She is a rising pop singer but also a passionate dancer. She is successful but she is surrounded by people who do not really know her. Her only true friend is Jeremy. Things get complicated when Jeremy's crush, Woods, finds his way into Logan's life.

Dance is the secret language of the soul. Loving is the universal language that connects souls equally.


Slow Dancing is the story of Logan and Woods, told in third person. It’s intense, emotional, angsty, captivating and sensual. Two souls who shared the same passion for dancing and a delicious chemistry that will wrap you.

Rather than highlighting the factor that Woods is a pan-sexual guy, I emphasized how the relationship between them evolved and the final outcome. From my poi

Dancing has always seems to me to be a version of foreplay.
Two bodies.
Inches apart.
Moving against one another.
Add some attraction between the two people and the sexual tension is intensified.

This story focuses on two people who think they just want the physical release. And discover their connection runs so much deeper.

Logan Cassidy is a bit of a reluctant pop star. Her past is centered on dance, but one mistake at the age of 16 changed the course of her journey. Singing is now her pr

Stylo Fantome has created a truly beautiful love story with Slow Dancing. A book that is very timely with the decisions many have made these days with respect to their very being. Logan Cassidy as the somewhat reluctant pop star and Woods Donahue as her main back-up dancer find an uneven rhythm as they explore more than just new moves on the dance floor. Theirs is a complicated kind of pairing with Logan wanting to remain discrete and Woods wanting to shout his affection for her to the world.

*I received a free copy to read & review for Wicked Reads*

I didn't know what to expect with this story, but I did know that I adore Stylo Fantome's story-telling.

Logan Cassidy is an up and coming pop-star who is currently on tour. She is used to being isolated, as an artist who got her start in dancing early in life she's never really experienced close relationships with anyone including her parents. Thankfully she has one real friend, Jeremy. Things get a little messy when Jeremy falls for one

Slow Dancing is here and it's different than a lot of the other books I've read by Stylo. I can't say that I connected to this one as much as I have with her other books. But Stylo definitely knows how to weave a story that'll absolutely suck you in.

Woods is here and is a pansexual. He's here to break all sorts of labels and that's just who he is. This was my first time reading about someone who is pansexual, I honestly can't say that I have a lot of knowledge about being pan. But I loved his ab

This book has me at a loss on what to write in a review. Not only has it left me inarticulate, but the words I might use will have the review bots all over this, so I’m doubly hamstrung. If you’ve read this author before, you know to expect the unexpected, and this is certainly unexpected. I suspect there will be critics on both sides, so I applaud Fantome for pushing herself and taking a chance on something different.

If you’re looking for a typical contemporary romance, you won’t find that here

The synopsis gives the bare bones about this book so when I read it the actual story came as a surprise. This has a different feel to the authors previous books and it took me quite a while to get into the flow of the writing and get a feel for the characters. I will tell you the story is relevant interesting thought provoking as well as passionate and emotional. I liked how the story mixed the dance and music world to show a different part of the entertainment world. Logan is a character who go ...more

“It wasn’t supposed to be like this. Not slow dancing in dark rooms, and whispered confessions, and feeling so full of want that had nothing to do with sex. When did I fall? Why didn’t I stop it?”

Dance around like I'm insane
I feel free when I see no one

Logan Cassidy is a professionally trained dancer that has recently branched out to singing and started her journey to becoming a pop-star. She is trying to release her emotional baggage while on tour. Shaking things up.

Woods Donahue has joined her troupe as her partner on the road tour he's been following her career for a while. Woods is a free spirit that follows his sexual impulses.

Can these two prima dancers put aside their emotional baggage for a healthy relationship?

Not my favorite by Stylo

I have to admit that I will automatically download any books I see by this author, but this wasn’t my favorite. While I fell in love with her writing because it was angsty and different, this book and the one before it have let me down. It’s becoming the same, mushy, fake conflict as other romance novels. The issue of labeling sexuality was definitely refreshing. But it didn’t make up for the fact that Logan was weak and Woods was charismatic but immature and selfish. I’d
