Yes, the baby daddy turned out to be quite a surprise; I would never have guessed. You'll have to read the book to find out because I don't do spoilers (at least not on purpose).
The Enemy is book two in the Blitzed series. Although I guess you could read each book as a standalone I don't recommend it; I think it would be a mistake to not start at the beginning.
The Enemy picks up where The Stranger left off. While The Stranger didn't exactly have a cliffhanger, The Enemy wraps up the story with a neater bow. I loved The Stranger but The Enemy didn't grab me quite as much. It's still a great story – a 4-star read for me – and I highly recommended reading it if you read book 1.
I have to be a little critical of how abruptly things ended with Livia's baby daddy. I really can't say more without giving anything away but this is why I only gave it 4-stars instead of 5 (which is still very good imho). The rest of the book worked fine for me.
Whenever Livia did something without thinking I just reminded myself that she is only 19 and led a pretty sheltered life. While some people might find it a bit unlikely for a 19-year-old to be in love the way she is with Blitz, I still remember how that feels and I married my love at 19 (40+ years ago).
I'm looking forward to reading more about Blitz and Livia in the remaining three books. If you're afraid of even little cliffhangers I think book two has a very satisfying ending without even a little pesky cliffie. JJ Knight is cunning though (in the best way), she gives us a sneak peek at book 3 just to tease us a bit and keep us primed until it's available for purchase.
I absolutely enjoyed this book. From the moment I started reading I was sucked into Livia and Blitz's world. At times I felt like I was on an emotional roller coaster. I was happy for Livia and Blitz. Then I was sad for the things in the past that Livia had to relive. At times I felt bad for the baby daddy and then others I was just plain angry with him. I love the chemistry between Livia and Blitz. Their personalities complement each other. Reading about the things they've been through in this book makes me believe that they'll have a strong relationship that'll last through the good and bad.
This was another well written book by Mrs. Deanna Roy and I would recommend reading it. The book ended on a happy note and without the huge cliffhanger like the first one. I definitely look forward to reading the next book in this series and seeing where Livia and Blitz's story takes us.
While I did enjoy this book, I had a couple of minor disappointments. First, there's a lot less focus on dance in this story, and that was one of the things I loved in the first book. It's a very minor issue and your tastes may differ from mine, but it's something to be aware of.
Second, I thought the baby daddy plot ended too abruptly, and in a way that I found very sad. Perhaps it was realistic, but I was just a bit disappointed. No cliffhangers, everything is tied up, but emotionally, I was left wanting. I was really hoping we'd see some redemption for the baby daddy!
Otherwise, this is a well-written story with several surprises. We get to meet Blitz's parents and learn more about Livia's past while watching their relationship continue to develop. None of the characters are perfect, but most of them are trying to do the best they can, and I am enjoying getting to know them. I look forward to continuing to read Livia and Blitz's story.
I didn't notice any editorial problems distracting from the story. There's minimal violence and I don't remember much swearing, but there are a couple of sex scenes that might be a bit too explicit for some readers. I would definitely recommend this series for fans of contemporary romance.
I volunteered to review an advanced reader copy of this book when it was first published as Wounded Dance (Lovers Dance Book 2) by Deanna Roy.
The Enemy/Wounded Dance continues the love story between Livia, our previously sheltered heroine, and Blitz Craven, our former reality tv dancing sensation hero. With Blitz's love and support, Livia has broken free of the house arrest her parents have had her in for the past 5 years, after learning she got pregnant. In this story, we find out who the baby daddy is, the story of how they met, and why their relationship should have been taboo. After finding out Livia was no longer innocent, her father forced the baby daddy out of her life, and he had no idea he was a dad, until he tracked Livia down after she appeared on television.
I really enjoyed this second book and seeing how Livia and Blitz's romance continued to grow, and how protective he was for not only LIvia but her daughter as well. Because her ex wanted to find their child, he also threatened Livia's ability to interact with her daughter since the adoptive mother is unaware of the deeper relationship LIvia shares to her daughter. I can't wait to see how the entire story wraps up!
