Four out of Five Stars
The Summary: Adam and Luc used to be close. At least they were before Luc distanced himself from Adam at fourteen, then eventually left home. Adam never got over the sting of betrayal, or the loss of his one-time best friend.
When Luc is invited back home to help get his parents’ failing dance school back on track, Adam isn’t sure he can cope with having his stepbrother back in his life. Especially when he discovers Luc’s decade old secret.
Luc left home because he was sure no one would understand that he had fallen in love with his stepbrother.
Convinced that the years of distance he has put between them will have erased his desire, Luc doesn’t hesitate to return home to help the business that means everything to his parents. Confronted by Adam once more, Luc’s past feelings re-awaken. But will revealing his true feelings to Adam heal the rift between them, or drive them even further apart?
So if you’ve been following my reviews from the beginning, you know that I will read pretty much anything. That includes step-brothers loving step-brothers. So if that’s not your jam, you should probably back away now or keep reading and let me convince you to read A Dance for Two.
Luc has been in love with his step-brother since they were teenagers. He’s always done the one thing he could think of to keep the boundary of step-brothers between he and Adam. He pushed Adam away, fought his attraction tooth and nail and in the process he lost any kind of relationship he once had with Adam.
When he learns that his parent’s business is in jeopardy and he has the marketing skill that may make a difference, he can’t stay away. Even if Adam is going to be there. They’re antagonistic towards each other. You can see how hurt Adam is by the fact Luc basically left him in the dust but he’s so confused too.
Luc had mastered hiding his feelings for Adam but being this close, with the both of them as adults, it’s hard to stop himself from looking. It’s even worse trying to stop himself from admitting why he caused such a rift between them as teenagers and even now.
I could see the men that Luc and Adam had grown into. Luc business minded and Adam the dancer and instructor. Whenever Adam danced, I could see it in my mind. I loved that it was like watching a movie. Everything in this story was fluid, well paced and offered an escape from the real world for me.
There were moments I could feel the emotions they were going through. It was a rush from discovery, understanding, curiosity and the white hot attraction between them. And their chemistry once they allowed themselves to move past the boundary of step-brothers, it was breathtaking.
The reactions to their relationship, their feelings for each other, made sense. It wasn’t all roses and perfect. They had to want this relationship one hundred percent because of the consequences they were going to be facing.
The relationship between Luc and Adam was a very much a dance for two.
Would I recommend this book to others? Most definitely. How does the author measure up? Well, pay day was Friday so I may have bought a couple of her other books.
