Say It With Sequins- The Waltz- Georgia Hill

When writer Lucy agrees to take part in a TV dance show, she knows she is out of her comfort zone.  However, she doesn't realise that dancing will only be part of the problem.  She develops a huge crush on hunky swimmer Max, a fellow contestant on the show- but the word on set is that he is gay.

I enjoyed this novella and read it in one sitting.  Lucy and Max were both charming characters- very 'normal' and easy to relate to.  And Max was HOT.  Not as hot as Harri from The Rumba ( he was Welsh, no one was ever going to compare), but he got my heart fluttering none-the-less.

I did find there were mentions of a lot of minor characters that I personally felt were surplus to the plot, but that didn't spoil my enjoyment of this sweet, romantic tale.  It was lovely to get a little update on characters from the previous Say it with Sequins book, The Rumba (you can read my review here ).

There is a wintery, festive backdrop to The Waltz, but don't let that put you off.  Whilst it has a festive feel it could just as easily be enjoyed on a beach in the height of summer.  It is essentially a story of repressed lust, something that can be experienced at any time of year!

If you are missing the glitz and glamour of Strictly Come Dancing, the Say It with Sequins series could be just what you are looking for to fill the void.  Although be prepared- I totally craved butterscotch Angel Delight after reading this book!

The Waltz is out now, published by Harper Impulse.  Find out more by clicking the banner below.


With thanks to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
