My Review:


Can professional dancer Micki and billionaire businessman Josh take home the dance contest trophy? Star Cruise Dream Dancer is a fun-filled romantic science fiction with intriguing characters, a fast-moving plot, opposites attract romance, and an original spin on celebrity dance contests. I love the way Veronica Scott takes the popularity of celebrity dance shows and injects it into her bestselling Star Cruise series. Star Cruise Dream Dancer is a feast for science fiction and romance readers alike.


Let’s start with the characters. Micki is a dancer on the luxury interstellar cruise ship who’s looking for her big break. An opportunity falls into her lap but she’s not sure what will happen. Micki is such a great heroine and very relatable. I connected with her right away.


Josh is a billionaire who is out of his element in this dance contest. He’d much rather be making deals than learning dance moves. But there’s something about his partner which tickles his fancy. She’s different than the rest of the ladies he’s been around. I liked Josh. He’s the perfect hero because while he’s very rich, he works hard too. He’s a virile man who has depth.


The rest of the characters round out the cast well. Each character in Star Cruise Dream Dancer has their own voice and personality. If you’ve read other books in this series, you’ll see a few characters from previous books.


What makes Star Cruise Dream Dancer so fabulous is the original plot. A celebrity dance contest set on a space cruise ship…I was so in my element while reading. Veronica Scott takes readers behind the scenes of a dance contest so we can view all that takes place. The training, the dancing, the tension, the romance, the ups and downs all combine to make Star Cruise Dream Dancer impossible to put down.


If you’re a fan of celebrity dance shows, you’ll want to read Star Cruise Dream Dancer. If you love romantic science fiction with an imaginative spin, pick up this book.
