BLURB: When life tears apart your dream, build a new one.
After a knee injury ended his career, Broadway dancer Pate Hawkins limped his way back from New York to Atlanta to implement Plan B: open a dance academy to train the next generation of song-and-dance dreamers. When model-gorgeous contractor Ace Samson answers his request for an estimate on renovating his studio space, Pate hits pay dirt in more ways than one. As construction gets underway, the red-hot attraction between the two men flares, and soon they develop a fledgling relationship. Then the siren song of the stage calls Pate back, and he has to choose between the dream he left behind and the new life he’s building—with his studio, and with Ace.
Rhythm & Blues is a fun, entertaining short story. It’s a real feel-good read with a good plotline, some great chemistry between our MCs, a few hot sex scenes and absolutely no angst. Just the way I like it.
Pate Finley is a dancer. After a serious knee injury and reconstructive surgery he’s going through the long process of recovery. He gives up his professional dancer career in New York City and moves back to his home town, Atlanta, to make his other dream come true. He buys an old building to have it remodeled and formed into a fantastic dance studio. He meets constructor, Ace Samson, and feels an immediate attraction, a strong pull towards the handsome, charismatic man. Ace is a lot more than meets the eye. He’s not only an honest, hardworking construction worker, but also a wonderful artist. After life happened in his life he took over the family’s construction-company, and has been working on his art in his free time as a hobby.
Pate and Ace start working together and their attraction is growing. The chemistry is really great between these two. Their scenes are filled with sexual tension and when it explodes we get some sizzling funtime. The writing is solid. The story flows nicely with no real depth, but I believe the writer’s aim was to entertain and give the reader an enjoyable hour in fantasy land. She perfectly succeeded. Enjoy!
