The writing is very good in Dance for Me, and the story flows across the pages without any hitches, but I wasn't really that invested in Natasha, which surprised me, because I love dance just as much as I love music. I can't put my finger on exactly what it was that made me feel a little more indifferent to her than to Karen. I think that Natasha and Darrell never really got to know each other, they both jumped off the deep end of the pool, without really being sure if they knew how to swim. And then they tried to make do with what they had.
As they are from two very different worlds, it was hard for me to see what the two main characters could really have in common, and I think that the large difference in finances participated in those differences. It felt strange to me that Darrell was so willing to pay to see Natasha dance at first. And I still can't understand how her dancing could help him make better designs. Also, he seemed so hell-bent on bettering said design that it was not very plausible what he did to it in the end.
In Harmony : 5 stars
In Harmony is a pretty amazing story in several of its aspects. I loved that it focused so much on music, I could almost hear it when Karen and Connor played, and it's something I'd buy if it existed for real. I really enjoyed Karen, she started out feeling awkward and different from her friends, and she really only had her cello on her mind - which is understandable in some ways. However, when she starts to open up to the world around her, she makes some pretty amazing discoveries.
Both Karen and Connor hide their real 'me' from the world, but they both need to relax and share who they are to really move forward. When they first start playing together, they are not harmony at all, but little by little, as they get to know each other, both their music and their feelings change to become a harmony that was beautiful and breath-taking at the same time. I loved how Karen learned to stand up for herself, even when it comes to her father who has more or less ruled her life since she was a little girl. She was scared and confused, but managed to give herself some time to think so that she could finally make the decision she had to make for her – not to make anybody else happy.
Acting Brave : 5 stars
Jasmine definitely did act brave, even when she thought herself she wasn't brave at all! Acting Brave is a very strong ending to Newbury's Fenbrook Academy series, filled with emotions - both good and bad, I both laughed, cried, and swooned! - and amazing characters. From the two other stories in this set, I knew Jasmine came from a dark place in her past, but I had no idea just how dark it really was. Ryan was the best partner for her to find, with his big heart and his strong character he was still vulnerable and sometimes unsure of himself.
I definitely recommend this series to readers who enjoy New Adult romances, but beware that not all is love and sweetness here.

Dance For Me -- Such a heartwarming read. When I started this book I knew nothing of the author or even the story content. After only reading the first few pages, I almost decided to skip this story thinking the heroin's issues might be too dark for me. I am so glad I decided to read "just a few more pages" because I became captivated. Unable to stop reading, I finished in just one sitting.
When I finished the book I found myself feeling warm, satisfied and consumed with the desire to recommend it to others. I quickly went on to read In Harmony and Acting Brave as soon as they were available. They did not disappoint! I found myself just as engrossed and in love with the these two books as I was with the first. I highly recommend this Trilogy and this author.
