FLIRTY, SEXY, AND HEARTFELT FORBIDDEN SPORTS ROMANCE SET IN THE WORLD OF
PROFESSIONAL DANCE. (STANDALONE)
I came to L.A. with dreams bigger than me.
To learn from the best choreographers in the business and secure a professional
dance gig working for Hollywood’s elite.
Everything was going according to plan—until I was literally shoved into the
arms of the one man who could make or break my career.
Come to find out, it wasn’t my career I had to worry about.
It was my heart.
Alexandra “Lex” Quinn screamed amateur, save for the way she moved across the
She was athleticism and grace, precision and passion, and she had a stage
presence I couldn’t tear my eyes from.
I wanted her…on my team, in my bed.
There was only one problem…
I couldn’t have both.
K.K. Allen has struck gold again! Easily one of my favorite authors, Center Of Gravity did not disappoint. I literally could not put this book down. Thank goodness I started it on the weekend so that I could finish it!!
I love anything that centers around the world of dance or music, so when I began reading, I was instantly transported into the book.
Lex and Shane, best friends and roommates, moved to LA from Seattle to pursue their dreams of becoming professional dancers. They live in a skeevy apartment with air mattresses for beds while studying dance at the renowned Gravity Dance Complex. Shane convinces Lex to attend an open audition, and though she didn’t get the spot, it spurs her on. When she receives an invitation to audition for another opportunity, she goes all out.
Turns out, the audition is for a back-up dancer to pop sensation, Winter, and she would be working with her idol/nemesis, the famed choreographer, Theodore Noska.
I absolutely loved the characters in this book. Shane, hopelessly flamboyant, lover of stilettos, and truly loyal friend, may be my favorite; however, they are all so beautifully developed that I found myself able to identify with so many of them. Reggie gave me the creeps, I felt so sorry for Winter, a child that had to grow up way too fast, and Theo and Lex… they made me want to swoon!
The storyline moves along at a very fast clip and it was over way too soon. I had to keep reading to find out what was coming next!
This truly is a sweet, sexy read that all lovers of a happily ever after will enjoy immensely!
