Set in Downtown Boston, Silent Partner tells the story of impressionistic artist and gallery owner Chloe LaRoche and nightclub owner and Latin dancer Grayson Anders. Chloe's gallery has suffered with the downturn in the economy. Bills are past due and she's desperate and depressed. A few tequilas won't help her financially, but at least it might get her mind off her woes. Red blood flows in her veins, and when Grayson moves onto the dance floor, all eyes, including Chloe's, are on the hunky, sensuous dancer.
Grayson has been searching for the perfect dance partner for his new studio, but until n ow he's been unsuccessful. He spots Chloe, sensibly dressed and as out of place in the happening nightclub as the scantily clad female wannabees would be in church. He pulls Chloe into a dance and finds her rhythm and sense of style astounding. Not only is she a perfect partner, he wants to learn much more about the gorgeous, sexy brunette. The on stage flirtation leads to hot kisses, which leads to something more.
Chloe doesn't indulge in casual sex, but Grayson has something she needs. After a night of exquisite passion, she slips out of his apartment and returns to her gallery, inspired with a new burst of creative juices.
Grayson awakens bereft. Not only has he lost his perfect dance partner and lover, he doesn't even know her name. But a little thing like that won't stop him. He knows she's exactly what he needs, and he's up to the challenge.
I loved this story. Ms. Vincent packs more feeling into just over one hundred pages than many authors do in a full-length book. I had just a couple of niggles, mostly to do with editing mistakes (e.g. "complected" instead of "complexioned", "gonner" for "goner", "snuck" instead of "sneaked"). Nevertheless, these are minor when looking at the entire story which is very well executed. Motives are well done; the reader gets to know the characters by their inner thoughts and actions, and Grayson who begins his journey as a self-serving man, experiences a wonderful epiphany that makes him a perfect complement to Chloe who suffers lasting effects of a youthful illness. I won't spoil the ending with further detail; you must buy this book to learn it for yourself. The characters will stay with you long after the last page is turned. My score 4.5.
