This is my first time reading a book by Aisling Magic, and I was not disappointed. I had a smile all while reading this cute summer read.

This book tells the story of Kaci, who's recently been cheated on, and Remi, the jerk dance instructor. Kaci has managed to accidentally sign herself and her friend up for Kizomba instead of Zumba, and after failing to get a refund, she'd forced to attend the dance lessons, which are thought by the jerk who refused to give her a refund.

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I always love to read a good romance novella and I have to say, I was happily impressed and highly entertained with Darling, Dance with Me. Aisling Magic gives us a romantic comedy, full of sweetness, sexual tension and all the emotions. Exactly the quick romantic treat that I needed right now!

I really loved the characters introduced, especially Kaci and Remi (of course!) and also Wylla, Candee and Nicholas.

This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Darling Dance With Me by Aislyn Magic was a cute, fun and fast- paced read. I usually struggle with novellas as there may not be sufficient character development or the story feels rushed. This was not the case with this story. The story which had a lot going on, featured a tightly written plot and we’ll developed characters.

Darling, Dance With Me is a short story that I enjoyed reading. Kaci and Remi is quite an interesting pair. The attraction was instant but it took sometimes for them to act on it. The dialogue was great and the character development was rather good for a novella. If you're looking for a quick, light read, I recommend this one.

Note: I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book and gave my honest opinion.

This is a cute and sweet novella that was a perfect weekend read for me :)

Kaci has decided to move into her dorm early, before college starts, after breaking up with her cheating boyfriend. Along with her best friend Candee, they sign up for a Zumba class so they can keep fit and hopefully meet new people. Only, the class was not zumba but a dance class with a more sensual feel to it

Kaci has always loved dancing, just like her mother. However, her father has always been completely against it. It

This book is fantastic: funny, easy to read, sweet, with a little angsty moment that made my heart beating faster.
Kaci & Remi have a great connection;
and i fell in love with Remi and his love for his family 🖤🖤
I would have liked a few more dance scenes between the two, given the theme of the book.

Darling, Dance with Me is a good quick read. This one fun read. I loved the use of hashtags as chapter titles and at the end of the chapters, I thought they were cute and fun. Kaci is a sweet girl. Her ex has cheated on her so she goes off the college a little bit before classes start. She has a fun and little crazy roommate, Candee. They go to sign up for Zumba classes but accidentally sign up for Kizomba. I had no idea what Kizomba was so I looked it up and oh wow, it's mesmerizing to watch th ...more

This is my first read from the author and the book kind of surprised me. Full of friendship, romance, love and a little of suspense, this novella won’t be my last book from her.

After Kaci caught her boyfriend kissing her best friend, she left town to start college and finally start a new life, with new friends and free from her dad’s controlling ways. In college she meets Candee, her spontaneous, fun, crazy and a little stalker new roommate.

Darling, Dance with Me is my first read by Aisling Magic and it was a pleasant surprise of how sweet and an easy read this book was.

Kaci is off to college and while waiting until classes start, she accidentally signs up for a dance class with her roommate Candee. The book details their time in the class as well as a few side plots.

Kaci was sweet and relatable, she comes from a family with expectations and is looking to spread her wings. Remi her dance instructor is hot and brooding but has som

This is a quick read and would be classified as a novella but a little bit on the the longer side of that. First time reader for this author!

The characters are great, especially Remi (Nicholas too) . I loved everything about him, I mean how can you not fall in love with a young guy who takes responsibility for his younger sister?

Kaci is new to the area, a college student just getting over a bad breakup after catching her boyfriend and best friend together. Looking to start over in college. Luck

She goes to sign herself and her roommate up for some Zumba classes but accidently signs them up for kizomba classes instead. They can’t get their money back or switch classes. Plus, her traitress roommate says she is going when they see the instructor. Remi is quite the looker. This book had me laughing one minute and catching the feels the next.

I have really enjoyed reading this short novella story that I wished was a bit longer but it was a great read. It was my first read by this author but won't be my last one. I enjoyed Kaci's spirit and Remi's drive in the story which was definitely something that drew you in. The only thing was all the hashtags in it was a bit too much at times but that's just a minor thing and personal. But overall a great enjoyable short summer read!

The story follows Kaci. She has run away from her ex and her best friend after she caught them kissing. College is starting, and Kaci is ready. She and her new roomie, Candee, have a list of items that they have to finish. On it, it says to do some exercise. That’s how they end up in Kizomba dance class. There she meets Remi. At first, she thinks he is an arrogant brat, but then she sees there is more to him than his front.

This is hands down the funniest romcom I’ve read in a while. It’s a novella, so a short fun read but I promise you will laugh from start to finish.

The storyline was good, the characters were absolutely hilarious and there was also a couple of chapters that really pulled on my heart strings.

This novella packs a punch. It has so much emotion, but also the right amount of humor. I'm one who likes dual points of view, but in this one I didn't really notice. Trust me that's hard to do for me. Remi's story hits you in the heart, but also makes you fall in love with him. There are moments that made me laugh, cry, gasp, and happy sigh. This book left me with a smile on my face.

Super Sweet Story!

The writing draws you in and keeps you involved throughout the whole story, I found myself in love with not only the characters but also the world that was created.

The descriptions of the characters and their feelings are so involved, you can truly picture it in your mind.
