Review

 

A cute, quick holiday novella involving Jess Davenport, a professional dancer on the reality tv competition show Dance Off! and Nik Kovalenko, also a professional dancer but not on the show. Nik and Jess share one incredible kiss at midnight at a New Year's Eve party and then go their separate ways (her to her job on the show and her volunteer work with at-risk teen girls; him to go on tour with a national Broadway show). They somewhat keep in touch via "likes" and a couple comments on each other's social media pages (ah, love in the time of IG, LOL). But Nik is back in town after the tour and decided Jess is the woman for him; so he goes about wooing her via dates to get her Scrooge mood into the holiday. 

 

I loved Jess - she was such a great contemporary heroine. I thought Nik was a fine hero and someone who would do right by Jess. They had chemistry both in their clothes and out - the sex scenes were hot but not OTT. There are also appearances from the couples from the first two books, so you see a glimpse of their HEAs as well. Overall, I really liked this book and want to read the other books even though I am not in any way a dance show fan.
