This was a first-time read of Lynn Turner and I gotta say she’s got it down to write so damn sensually. Or maybe it was the combo of Zack and Mina and dancing?
Okay, I’ll start off with that I did enjoy this book, but there were some moments that just didn’t quite work for me.
I absolutely love the way that Lynn Turner writes and it was different than what I’ve read before. She’s so descriptive and it’s very easy to get taken away by her words. And my favorite was dance scenes with the both of them. I’m surprised they weren’t just sneaking away after every rehearsal to you know *wink.wink* because all of it was some major foreplay. The build-up between the two is insane, everyone in the room could feel it. I love the slow burn between these two and so much passion. Not just with their love of dance, but for each other.
Besides their story, there are other things going on in the background. Zack and Mina both have personal things that they’re going through. And it’s tough for them to be open about it, more Zack than Mina. Plus, there’s a couple twist and turns that kind of sent me in different directions and it felt a bit out of place or maybe not necessary?
Some of the French in Mina’s dialogue took me out of the book at times and that tied in with the pacing of the book being a little slow at times. I have some knowledge of the French language, so I understood for the most part. But the other times when she speaks French like when she and Zack were alone; sexy!
Lynn Turner, you’ve definitely gained a new reader and I look forward to reading future books of yours. I’m just in awe of your writing! And major points for Fievel Goes West loved that movie as a kid; nostalgia!
