When dancing brings out hidden desires and passions, the results are so scorching the pages may burn you. These three stories give the phrase dirty dancing a whole new meaning.
Lessons in Love by Elizabeth Raines
Actor Craig Everett invites Juliana Barrington to dance with him in a contest, hoping to beat out a rival who won the last time and has never let him live it down. What Juliana doesn't know is that Craig has wanted her for years and he is hoping this will bring them together, sexually and emotionally.
Juliana agrees to dance with Craig, and to the dance lessons, because she wants to spend more time with him. She has a hidden fantasy involving Craig and another man, but she's afraid he will want nothing to do with her if he finds out.
When they arrive for their first dance lesson, Alejandro, their instructor, can see the passion they have for each other and pushes them to succumb to it in order to improve their dance and get everything out of it. He knows in his own mind that until they give in to their desire for each other, he will never be able to convince them to allow him to join them.
Though still enjoyable, this story is not my favorite in this anthology. While the storyline was good, I didn't really feel the chemistry between the characters, which made it hard to stay involved through the entire story.
The Boys in the Band by Cheryl Brooks
Geneva Tirey inherited a pub in Wales from her grandfather when he died so she packed up her bags, left her life in New York behind and went to run the pub. She was ready for a change. The club came with a band of four men who performed every Saturday night. They flirted with her and made her feel welcome, but it wasn't until she and her boyfriend broke up that she realized their flirtations weren't as innocent as she thought.
Sean, Rhys, Nigel and Braden had decided Geneva was theirs. As four guys who lived and played together, they all fell in love with her, but she already had a boyfriend and they wouldn't step on that. The boys made a pact that if Geneva was ever single again, they would convince her to be "their" girl and they would do everything in their power to make her see how good it could be, including seducing her on the dance floor.
This was my favorite of the three stories. So many people fantasize about threesomes but FIVEsomes? This story was so hot I'm surprised my book didn't disintegrate in my hands. I wasn't sure how a fivesome would play out; with so many people I would have thought it might be awkward. The author, however, made it fun and funny, and I thoroughly enjoyed this very naughty read.
Learning Curve by Mellanie Szereto
As an accountant, Julayne Donahue, known to her friends as Laynie, can crunch numbers, calculate and analyze anything put in front of her. At night, she teaches a pole dancing class to women interested in learning. She is passionate about her work both day and night but what she wants more than anything is a relationship with the gorgeous twins who she has become friends with.
When Reece and Bran Hilliard see the type of dance lessons Laynie is giving, their desires fly out of control. The only problem is, which one of them gets the opportunity to convince Laynie he's the one for her? When presented with this problem, Laynie is the one who has the solution.
This was a fun story to read. There was chemistry between the characters and there was a good focus on the feelings of the two brothers as the story moved along. It wasn't all about the sex. Although as a short erotic story, it was mostly about the sex! So if you're looking for something a little hotter to fantasize about, this is the right read for you.
Overall, the three short stories were fun and enjoyable. I would recommend them for someone who likes multiple partner reads.
