5+ stars for The Dance by Grea Warner #newadult #womensfiction #romanticfiction #bookreview

Title: The Dance

Author: Grea Warner

Genre: New Adult, Women’s Fiction, Romantic Fiction

Book Blurb:

Stepping onto the ice was frightening. Doing so required trust … and not just that of her feet. It also involved Cate’s head and heart. Trusting meant she had to forget what happened in the past.

At twenty-two years old, Cate Lentz is starting to understand Noah’s comparison of skating to a dance. The same, she realizes, can be said about life itself. You have to release the walls surrounding you in order to feel light and free. You also need the right partner. With the NHL rookie at her side, Cate is beginning to see a new and exciting life-canvas in front of her—similar to the paintings she creates in her art studio.

But as smooth as ice is, everyone tumbles and falls sometimes. When her ex, Leo, makes a reappearance in Cate’s life, his mental instability creates such turmoil and heartache that it’s hard for her to stand back up. Can she find a way to dance again after tragedy strikes?

Pulling at heartstrings and dealing with realistic issues, The Dance is a gripping tale that travels the reader back to the year 1980. This emotional story will leave you with a true appreciation for being both independently strong but also grateful for those who are by your side … no matter what.

My Review:

To be truly free, one must release the past. Can Cate rise up from the pain to dance with Noah? The Dance is an unrelenting emotional story anyone can relate to. With a plot filled with realism, The Dance will take you back to 1980 and fill your soul with an uplifting message. This book is an unforgettable read and one of Grea Warner’s finest work.

I know whenever I pick up a Grea Warner novel, it’s going to have an emotional effect on me. The range of emotions is vast but oh so satisfying. I always have a box of tissues nearby. The Dance is no different. Don’t worry, it’s a good cry and very therapeutic.

It all starts and ends with the characters. Cate and Noah are such wonderful characters and I connected with them right away. What Cate goes through tore my heart out. But the strength and fortitude she possesses made me cry happy tears. Noah is a wondrous character too. He helps Cate see life through a new lens. You’ll be rooting for these two.

The emotional narration makes The Dance a worthwhile read. There’s so much emotion going on, but it’s 100% realistic. The author doesn’t shy away from the turmoil. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll gasp, you’ll get angry. But mostly, you’ll fall in love with this book.

An epic story not to be missed, you won’t be able to put down The Dance. This book is one I strongly recommend.
