This book was really cute. I loved how the hero Nick wasn't perfect that there was actually something he couldn't do and I mean he really couldn't dance at all. This leads him into one hell of a predicament when he needs to be able to Waltz as the starring character of his new role. With not much time left he needs to find someone to teach him.
Ashleigh (h) who is busy with her evolving business as a dance instructor agrees to work with Nick for a friend. There is a definite attraction between the two but Ashleigh being the professional she is isn't willing to push the boundaries into more than business. Little does she know she just took the job of her nemesis and Nick's ex. When one thing leads to another the attraction they feel can no longer be denied. Their dating relationship needs to be hidden from Nick's ex and the media. What will happen if they're discovered? Will Nick's ex destroy everything Ashleigh's worked for?
Both Nick and Ashleigh were very likable. The scenes when she teaches him to dance are pretty funny and sexy too. I definitely felt the chemistry between the two and was rooting for them to make it work. This book has some angst and I didn't know if I could come to like Nick's mother but I think she grew on me after thinking it over. Nick isn't one to trust easily so he's easily manipulated to believing things he shouldn't and screws up pretty bad. I was crossing my fingers he would redeem himself because I really did like him.
All in all a quick, fun, sweet story. I recommend.
Ashleigh is an amazing woman. A dance instructor with her own studio, she has faced the odds and won. She's had horrible parents who never thought she was good enough at anything she's done, and she has held her own against another dance instructor who has tried to sabotage Ashleigh's every move. She is strong and determined and beautiful.
Nick is one of the actors on the hit TV show “Olympus”. It's summer break from filming, and he is starring in his first ever live play – a show called “The Last Bachelor”. In it, Nick has several scenes where he needs to dance with his co-star. Except Nick has two left feet. Or, as the author puts it, “on the scale of 'can't dance', there was not good, bad, very bad, a few more levels, and then Nick.” After abruptly firing his ex-girlfriend dance instructor, Nick needs a replacement, and it's only a month before the opening performance. He's desperate for someone who can take over on short notice. And Ashleigh is the friend of a friend's girlfriend.
Ashleigh and Nick hit it off right away and in a very short time start falling into bed together. They realize that they barely know each other, but nothing beats a strong hot case of lust.
That's your basic premise. But things get a lot more complicated because of stuff that happened in the past to both of them. Nick can be a totally attentive and thoughtful boyfriend, but he also tends to have a lot of mistrust. He can be bullheaded and suspicious of people's intentions. He's been hurt before by people who used him to try to advance themselves. So he can be sweet and loving one minute, then someone will put an idea in his head and he'll be hateful and spewing out venomous words. Ashleigh is so forgiving. All he has to do is send her flowers and apologize, and she's ready to forgive. Except this same pattern keeps happening.
These are two strong-willed and independent people. It's interesting to see how they play off each other. I couldn't help but like Ashleigh more and more as the book went on and sympathize with her, while at the same time I really wanted to grab Nick and slap him upside the head a few times! Are these two going to be able to survive each other? I'll never tell. You have to read it.
Author Elle Rush has an enjoyable sense of humor that she skillfully inserts into her characters' thoughts and conversations, particularly in the early “getting to know you” stages of the relationship, which makes them so much more fun to read. I find myself constantly chuckling over various phrasing here and there. It adds more sparkle to the story. With each book in this series, I find myself looking more and more forward to the next one. What a great group of characters and friends she's created in this “Olympus” world of hers!
*Oh. If you're wondering why I titled this review “Naked is Better”, that's the first line of the book ;)
How can you not like a book that starts out that way?
After making the mistake to hire a girlfriend to choreograph the dance scene he needed to do was his first mistake. Breaking up with her ended both their personal and professional relationship. But soon after this realization Nick's friends referred him to Ashleigh, who was able to improve his ability by the end of his first lesson, which is good since he has less than a month to showtime.
Ashleigh dance studio is fine, but she is out growing it and needs to find something better. With all of her time filled with lessons and looking she manages to fit time in to teach Nick and the crew there dances. But the schedule is brutal. Leaving no time for a life, or so she thought, Nick seemed to find a way in to her heart.
With the way of show business Nick was so used to believing people only got close to him to use him, so when things popped up he assumed that Ashleigh was also using him to improve her business.
With all of the stress and rumors will Nick give Ashleigh the benefit of doubt or believe what he's heard.
Elle Rush has a talent to draw in the reader. I am looking forward to catching up on the series.
