Hell hath no fury like a boyfriend scorned as sitcom star and comedian, CJ Edwards, finds out when his ex releases a sex tape he hadn’t even known was being filmed. Not to mention the headlines on every newstand accusing CJ of being an abusive alcoholic. His career in tatters, CJ’s agent manages to get CJ a spot on the Christmas special of Dancing with Stars in Your Eyes. Seeing it as a chance to possibly redeem himself, CJ accepts.
Lucien Moreau has been a dance professional on Dancing with Stars in Your Eyes for three years, and he loves it. Until the powers that be decide, in view of new marriage equality laws, the show’s Christmas special will include a gay couple. Finding out he is being partnered with CJ Edwards hits him like a fist to the gut. Six months ago his brother and sister-in-law were killed in an accident when their car was hit by a drunk driver. How the hell is he supposed to teach a man, not unlike the one who destroyed his family, to dance?
I really LOVED this story. I will assume I know where the author received their inspiration from for this story. I would have to agree, I wish it were more like this book.
It sometimes takes forever to build a career, it only takes one word or one sex tape to ruin it. Poor CJ, I actually felt sorry for him. He finally catches a break after being falsely accused of being an abusive drunk, he never hit anyone, when his bad luck makes a bad first impression.
My first impression of Lucien was a judgemental, uptight Brit. I quickly learned the reason for that and he grew on me. Actually he’s pretty nice once he decides he’s going to like you.
I’m not sure what to say about this story. You sometimes have these books that you really love but you really can’t explain why. This is one of them. I love all of Lisa Worrall’s books that I have read so far, including this one. It was written well, the characters were developed well. It made me laugh out loud. I don’t remember crying which is good in my opinion. I don’t like to cry.
I highly recommend this book, it was a fun read. I’m glad I had the chance to read it. I give this book 5 stars.
