New job, new city: Mason hopes both will lead to him escaping burnout as a ballet dancer. Not living out of a suitcase anymore is a bonus. His new life gets off to a steamy start when he encounters his new neighbour, David. Things soon become complicated when Mason turns up for his first day at BalletEast, to discover that David is not only his choreographer but the man who inspired him to take up dancing in the first place.

With two divorces and a string of failed relationships behind him, David has no intention of promising ‘forever’ to anyone. But when he meets Mason, he falls hard and fast for the enigmatic young dancer. As David becomes more serious about Mason, he wants to open his lover’s eyes to the kinks that he enjoys.

Whilst the two men are navigating the early stages of their romance, Mason is facing immense pressures in the rehearsal studios that threaten to dampen his natural enthusiasm for life. Will David’s love and support be enough to help Mason continue to hold his head high and dance like he’s never danced before?

Mason just moved to a new city to start his new job as a junior soloist at BalletEast and the day he's moving into his apartment, he meets his intriguing older neighbor David and they hit it off. The next day, they discover that David is the choreographer for BalletEast's newest A Midsummer Night's Dream production and while Mason isn't all that convinced of continuing their neighbors with benefits arrangement, David convinces him they can be discreet, especially once Mason is hired as the new Puck, engendering the anger from another of the dancers, who thinks the role should be his. David and Mason's relationship quickly turns into more, but do they have what it takes to make it into something more permanent?

I loved Mason from the start. He's sweet and hardworking, perhaps a little naive in thinking he could handle Kirk's bullying on his own, but still willing to stand up for himself and not depend on David or anyone else. It took me a bit longer to warm up to David, he was nice and treated Mason right, but he was very set in his ways. Despite the age gap, they fit very well together, especially since Mason was willing to bend a little and experiment and at least in that sense, David was very patient with him and willing to wait until Mason was ready to move forward. Even if I felt the progression as they included some BDSM elements to their relationship was a bit forced at times, the sex scenes were very hot and passionate.

Overall, this was a pretty good, sexy, enjoyable read with some light angst thrown in for good measure. Recommendable!

A Dance for Two

4 stars

This was a first-time author for me and I really enjoyed this book. It was well-written and I liked both MCs, Luc and Adam. I love a good taboo book, and while stepbrothers are not super taboo, there was just enough to make it extra hot.

The story was a little angsty just for the fact that Luc and Adam basically resented each other in different ways and so the tension between the two of them was high. I personally liked this because I was waiting for it to explode. It was nice to see the evolution of their relationship from the beginning of the book until the end. It was hard to see both of them struggle with keeping their relationship a secret and also their parents' reactions. However, by the end, they were super lovey and sweet with each other and things had definitely improved on the family front.

A Dance for You 

4 stars 

I loved Mason from the start! He was super genuine and sweet when he first met David. I enjoyed the storyline and how much we got to see Mason and David's interactions, both personally and a little bit professionally. The author did a good job of showing how much dance meant to Mason and his love for it. And I just want to say that ALL of the sex scenes... yesss! I was fanning myself during each one of them.

This book was sweet and naughty but definitely had some angst that kept things interesting. I am excited to read more from this author in the future!
