BLOG TOUR: Forbidden Dance by Deanna Roy

Here is a snippet of the book, my review will be up at a later time!

“So do you have class today?” he asks.

I let go of him. “Oh my gosh. What time is it?”

He flicks the round screen on his wristband. A watch face lights up. “Four-ten.”

“Oh no! I’m late!” I run for my bag, then stop. “Come with me,” I say. “Betsy can teach you a few things!”

He hesitates.

“Do you have something better to do?” I ask. “Like reading nasty Blitz Burn Tweets?”

“Touché,” he says. “All right. But I’ll have to keep my hands off you in there.” We head off the side of the stage.

My heart revs up. “Why is that?”

“Your kindly boss Danika,” he says. “I’m skating on thin ice after Wednesday.”

Shoot. That’s right. It was one thing to sneak a dance in an empty recital hall. Another thing to be together with an audience.

He takes my hand and we head into the staging area, where the door to the storage room still stands open.

My blood rushes in my ears. “Did you have some nefarious plan for in there?” I ask.

We dodge the costume racks. He pulls me behind one.

“Just this,” he says.

He cradles my face in both of his hands, and before I can even think, his lips land on mine.

She was hidden from the world. Then he arrived.
An emotional new novel from six-time USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy

For four years, I’ve lived in almost total seclusion. Homeschooled, forbidden from social media, seeing no one other than the dancers at Dreamcatcher Academy, where I teach ballet to little girls in wheelchairs.

Then Blitz arrives.

He’s the disgraced host of Dance Blitz, a bawdy reality show where Blitz sleeps with as many dancers as possible while looking for his perfect partner.

At least he was. A few weeks ago, he got kicked off his own show.

He’s at my academy for a publicity stunt, and my wheelchair ballerinas are his ticket back into the public’s good graces.

I intend to hate him and stay as far away as possible. But when he looks at me, I can’t resist. Before I realize what’s happened, we’re sneaking into back rooms, dancing, kissing, planning dates away from the cameras and the wrath of my family.

But I’m afraid. I have a secret at the academy, a small, wonderful, terrible secret, and if I stay with Blitz, the world will find out.
Forbidden Dance is a full-length standalone HEA, although fans who fall in love with Blitz and Livia can continue the series to follow more of their love story
