Contemporary Romance, LGBTQ
Attending his daughter's holiday dance recital should be easy for pro hockey player Patrick Barnes. Showing up in a tutu, however, wasn't exactly part of the plan. And yet the holidays get even more interesting when he bumps into Lee, the man he let get away years ago.
Ballet instructor Lee can't believe who just walked into his studio. He also can't believe how quickly the flare of attraction between he and Patrick resurfaces, despite the years that have gone by since they last spoke.
Once upon a time, they let opportunities get away. Is it possible they'll now have the chance to pursue the spark that has come back to life after just one conversation?
Holidays are a time for giving, and neither Patrick nor Lee are about to take this particular gift for granted.

BALLERINA DAD is a lovely short Christmas story. It was really sweet and romantic.
Patrick is a tough professional hockey player who would do anything for his daughter, including showing up in a tutu to her holiday dance recital. Her ballet instructor, Lee, was surprised to see his high school crush showing up in his studio. The attraction is instantaneous and holiday time seems like the perfect moment to give themselves the opportunity of a new love.
It was a beautiful story. They were a nice couple, as short as it was there wasn't too much time to spend building up a more slow-burn relationship, which I prefer, but it was very enjoyable. They seem just perfect for each other. It is a little fast paced but there was enough time to deliver a believable romance with some hot scenes and some sweet Christmas moments.
Jordan was a sweet character, she had the appropriate attitude for her age and was very likable. One of the things I think it could be better was the fact that the story was mostly centered on Patrick's life and we got to know only a little about Lee. I would love to know Lee better; he seems very nice.
Overall it was an adorable story, very enjoyable and appropriate for reader who enjoy holiday stories.
