To this day, I'm still not sure which is more embarrassing.
Being left by your husband who says you are fat, overbearing, and frigid in bed.
Or having to change partners midway through a season of televised dancing—because your partner can't lift you.
Both hurt. A lot. The first made me want to curl up into a little ball and hibernate. Since I had plenty of fat to store away for the winter, it didn't sound like a bad idea.
The second left me so angry, I waltzed the man through his own set of moves—straight up to the full mirror. Then I lifted him. Luckily, he didn't get hurt. And I didn't get sued.
But that's how I ended up over the knee of the hottest man I have ever met.
After he spanked me, he became my new partner.

DANCING WITH A DOM is a fun novella by USA Today bestselling author, Katherine Deane. When we meet Macy Rogers, she's about to do something incredibly brave or incredibly humiliating. Maybe a bit of both. Setting out to prove something, she undertakes a dancing competition but with her head intent on showing up her ex, Macy misses the mark and doesn't have her head in the game. She goes a bit too far, when in a very "hangry" moment, she pushes her dance partner to tears.
In steps Dane. This dance competition is a bit of a Hail Mary attempt to save his uncle's failing cable station. And he is having none of Macy's temper tantrums. So much so that he puts her over his knees for a much needed spanking.
What ensues is a romance of the kinky kind.
Likes: The dance competition was a marvelous way to have the couple "dancing" around each other as they learn more about each other and themselves. The story progresses fairly rapidly over the course of preparing for the competition. Both Dane and Macy were great as characters and I enjoyed their inner dialogues. The romance and sex scenes were fantastic.
Dislikes: Given that this is a novella, I can understand how much of the backstory needed to be left to the imagination, but it would have been nice to see more of them actually dancing. Macy needed a better transformation; by the end of the story, I still wasn't sure how accepting she was of her own body. From the way Macy was described, she definitely wasn't a size fourteen. Not even close. She would have been better off as a size twenty, at a minimum. It would have made much more sense. While I enjoyed the kink aspects, given that she was brand new to it, it would have been good to see Dane move a bit slower with the BDSM; again, I realize that this is a novella and some things have to give. It could have used a final line edit.
Overall, it's an enjoyable read.
