Dance with Me (California Belly Dance Romance Series Book 2) by DeAnna Cameron is a sizzling romance that starts with a somewhat innocent lie. Big time drummer Taz Roman wants a woman to pretend to be his girlfriend and come live with him so his sister will stop meddling in his love life. He asks belly dancer Melanie to take the job of pretending girlfriend and offers to coach and work with her for the newest Belly Dance Divas' audition. Melanie agrees, even though she thinks Taz is self-righteous and spoiled. But as the two begin to work together, Melanie's feelings start to change. Can something real come from a lie they are both telling? How does Melanie know what emotions are real when they are both working so hard to pretend their lie is true?
This is the second book in a series about sexy belly dancers and the attractive (and complicated) men that love them. It is well written, if a little bit short, and will appeal to readers of traditional contemporary romance who love a good story about love/hate relationships that just become love relationships. Lies are always more complicated than they seem, and readers who are familiar with this type of story will love the way the characters change their minds and their emotions once they realize they aren't actually lying any more. Good character relationships. This is a nice, quick read that readers will really enjoy. -- Reviewed by Janelle Fila for Readers' Favorite
