She was hidden from the world. Then he arrived.
An emotional new novel from six-time USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy
For four years, I’ve lived in almost total seclusion. Homeschooled, forbidden from social media, seeing no one other than the dancers at Dreamcatcher Academy, where I teach ballet to little girls in wheelchairs.
Then Blitz arrives.
He’s the disgraced host of Dance Blitz, a bawdy reality show where Blitz sleeps with as many dancers as possible while looking for his perfect partner.
At least he was. A few weeks ago, he got kicked off his own show.
He’s at my academy for a publicity stunt, and my wheelchair ballerinas are his ticket back into the public’s good graces.
I intend to hate him and stay as far away as possible. But when he looks at me, I can’t resist. Before I realize what’s happened, we’re sneaking into back rooms, dancing, kissing, planning dates away from the cameras and the wrath of my family.
But I’m afraid. I have a secret at the academy, a small, wonderful, terrible secret, and if I stay with Blitz, the world will find out.


Forbidden Dance is a full-length standalone HEA, although fans who fall in love with Blitz and Livia can continue the series to follow more of their love story

3 stars 

I liked this story. The storyline was intriguing and it kept me somewhat engaged in the book. I enjoyed how Deanna incorporated dance into the story. It was the main factor that connected Livia and Blitz and the scenes involved with it were great. Livia and Blitz had that instant chemistry that both couldn’t run from. I liked their interactions-the easiness and their banter made them a sweet couple. Dealing with Livia’s sheltered life and Blitz’s reality tv fame made them an opposites attract and that brought out the angst but they were so much alike. I enjoyed reading about their relationship and seeing the growth and change in their characters. How they would handle certain situations and how the plot would play out made for a good read. Though this book could be read as as standalone, their story does continue and I’m interested to see where Deanna would take them next.
