It's said the artist is born of a damaged soul…

Wilhelmina Allende is a prima ballerina. When tragedy turns her beloved Paris into a gilded cage, she jumps at the chance to work with one of the most prolific choreographers she’s ever seen. But Zack’s style is way out of her comfort zone. So is his teaching method. And his humor. And his everything. He’s a charming little connard. It’s hard not to like him. Merde. What has she gotten herself into?

Zachary Coen’s first musical is opening on Broadway. Much like his life, it’s anything but conventional, so hiring Mina is simply out of the question. She’s too…classical. Too perfect. She’s all wrong for the role. Then he meets her in person and sees her cracks. Her broken pieces. How unique and beautiful each one is. And he can’t help but notice how her edges seem to fit his…perfectly.

Just when teaming up seems to be working, the monsters they’ve kept hidden threaten to rip it all apart.

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!

About Lynn Turner

Lynn Turner is dedicated to writing inclusive stories that explore what it means to be imperfectly human. She is convinced she would have made a great Gilmore Girl, that writing about herself in third-person is weird, and that Colin Firth is the best Mr. Darcy (don’t fight her on this). When she isn’t writing and adulting, she’s tackling her monstrous TBR list, TV-binging, traveling, or watching old Samantha Brown travelogue videos and wishing she had her job. She and her husband share their home in California with their two extraordinary children and their sometimes cat, Bowie.
