Shut Up and Dance With Me: is the seventh book in the Oceanic Dreams series. This short romantic comedy has great characters in Danny and Sandy, two former friends forced to choose sides in a couple's divorce but then meet again when the same couple gets remarried. The storyline is well written, with humour, mishaps, and romance aboard a cruise ship. I really enjoyed this story.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy from the Author. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Will Sandy give into the chemistry between her and Danny?
Shut Up and Dance With Me by Monique McDonell is a brilliant romance between friends who are thrown together again to witness their besties second wedding. This story is so much more, and it has such a fabulous ending.

Shut up and Dance With Me - I always enjoy reading the lighthearted and sweet stories by Ms. McDonell. I like that the main characters are from Texas, and they are not messed up with stereotypes. The storylines are interesting and humorous and fast paced.

The journey for the two main characters is great with plenty of realistic behavior and dialog, and the reader can feel the attraction and love between these two old friends given a second chance. This is all thanks to the best friends of both t

Shut up and Dance with Me is the seventh book in the Oceanic Dreams series. All the books in the series take their titles from various songs and this time the book also pays a little homage to Grease as the two main characters are called Danny and Sandy and there are even little references to Olivia Newton John along the way.
Sandy is on the cruise only because her best friend has decided to re marry her ex but she doesn’t think it is a good idea, a sentiment echoed by his best friend Danny. In

Sandy's friends are getting re-married, and unlike the last wedding, this one is very small and low-key - on a cruise ship. She's not looking for anything in the love department - her family history has left her jaded about happily ever after. Danny is the best man, a restaurant owner, and one of the most eligible bachelors in Texas. They agree to play nice for the sake of their friends, and he proceeds to try to win her over - he wants a forever, and thinks it could be with her. Despite her bes ...more

This was fun from the get go and had me wishing I had a fruity cocktail while I was reading it! Sandy and Danny chose sides after their friends marriage felt apart but now their friends are going for round 2 of marriage by getting married on a singles cruise yup that's right during a singles cruise! While Sandy tries to stay away from the Italian Stallion aka Danny she does a cray job of it and you can feel her will power failing as the story goes on. There are plenty of laughs, some terribly ch ...more

I loved this book from the start. Danny and Sandy have been roped in as bridesmaid and best man on the remarriage of their best friends Lance and Vivi. Originally they had all four been close friends but had taken sides when the marriage broke down. Sandy didn't trust Lance not to cheat again and thought Vivi was asking for trouble especially as they were marrying onboard ship during a singles cruise. I enjoyed reading how Sandy struggled with her feelings for Danny when she was convinced no rel ...more

Danny and Sandy have felt an attraction for each since they first met, but one or both of them were dating someone else. Their friends Lance and Vivi are getting remarried onboard a singles cruise ship. That seems an odd one to choose unless Lance wants to cheat again? I enjoyed reading about the excursions and events they participated in. The crazy ferret from previous books in this series makes an appearance and causes havoc. Danny and Sandy spend a lot of time dancing, hence the book title. T ...more

Ooh it was like watching Grease again with Sandy and Danny. The comedic fun that this book has is that it is a friends to bitter enemies to lovers quality about it that I think is fun and a new story type that I like. Wonderfully written story and a great enhancement to an already wonderful series. Let there be more please.

I loved Shut up and Dance With Me. It is a fun, flirty romance with great characters. I love the fun, romantic banter between Sandy and Danny. I love the cruise ship setting. It makes for a fun environment with interesting excursions and includes a mishap with a ferret. The romance is a sweet build up as they repair their relationship and discover their strong feelings for each other. This a a wonderful book and it was impossible to put down. I highly recommend this book!

They picked a side in their friend's divorce, they didn't count on them wanting a second wedding. The characters are not stereotypical, good storyline, laugh out loud moments and a second chance at love.

Quick summer read. You will love Sandy because she has no filter. All her emotions are on display. That is the one thing that Danny really loves about her. How the two of them are not going to say anything to Lance and Vivi, who decided to try marriage again. We are on the Aphrodite cruise ship, a boat that boasts that people fall in love and get married. The characters are just a lot of fun!

A thoroughly delightful story set on a cruise ship. Interesting shore excursions and one mans determination to win over the girl he finds irresistible. I must confess I’ve never encountered a critter on a cruise ship but this one causes mayhem while helping the romance along.
