Heart Touching Romance
What a great start to a new series. Tanner Ross is the director of Jason’s House which is a safe place for troubled teens in Cedar Hill, Pennsylvania. He is raising his eight year old daughter Haley by himself as her mother left when Haley was young wanting nothing to do with either one. Tanner puts all his energy into the kids of Jason’s House and his daughter. In a meeting with the mayor, he is told that a new dance studio is opening that Isabella Harper, the prima ballerina from New York, is opening. His daughter wants to take lessons so he goes to the open house to sign up Haley. Tanner and Izzy have a connection. He later runs into her at a restaurant and bar where they dance and spend time together. He wants to see more of Izzy, but is concerned about his daughter taking dance classes from her and doesn’t want his daughter to get attached if the relationship goes nowhere.
This book touched my heart. The author handled all the situations so well. There are things I enjoyed about such as adopting a puppy from a shelter that Izzy’s sister runs, Haley who is such a sweetheart and how well Tanner is raising her, the love that Izzy shows Haley as well as her dance students and how protective Izzy’s siblings are. With all situations in life, we have baggage from our past that has to be worked through and this is the case with Tanner and Izzy. Some episodes broke my heart with the troubled teens. Others made me laugh and feel good. I strongly encourage you to read the book. I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader’s Copy of this book.
Enjoyable start to a new series!
Enjoyable start to a new series! Excellent character development with both characters portrayed in a way that makes their actions/reactions believable. While the storyline was a bit predictable, it is a heartwarming book and worth your time!
A great afternoon read!
