About the Book: Saturday nights are strictly for dancing… 

As the glitter ball shimmers and sequins flash, forty-year-old Maggie remembers the pull of the dancefloor.  But now, as a newly divorced mum of two, Maggie’s certain her dancing days are over.  Or are they…?

Encouraged by her friends, Maggie dusts off her silver stilettos and enrols for dancing classes, all she needs now is the perfect partner.

Enter Seb.  Young, carefree and hot as hell, Seb is definitely a perfect 10!  Even though everything about him is outrageously inappropriate! But as Seb sweeps her across the dancefloor every week, Maggie begins to see a new side to him; kind, caring, funny, strong.

And Maggie realises that he’s the only one she’d like to foxtrot with…perhaps even forever

4 Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is my first book by Kathryn Freeman and I am so glad I read this one. I will definitely be checking out her other books. This was such a fun book about Maggie, a divorcee who has lost her spark. She is in her late thirties with two delightful young girls, who doesn’t do much but work and take care of her girls. When Seb (Sebastian) Armstrong, her best friends’ brother comes home to the UK after his father’s heart attack, Maggie has not idea what is in store for her.

This book was delightful. The dialogue was snappy and often had me giggling. Maggie is like so many other women whose husband has left them for a younger woman. She is in a rut, has low self-esteem and does not expect to be involved in another romance, especially one ten years her junior. Seb ran away right after University, having no idea what he wanted to do with his life. He always felt like a disappointment to his father and when he comes home to care for him after his heart attack, he still feels the same. What he did not expect was to fall in love with his sisters’ best friend, one ten years older, divorced and with two children. I loved Seb! He was fun, loving, care-free, honest and more. It doesn’t hurt that he was also handsome. Throw in some adorable children, his family and some older dancers that become friends and you have a wonderful cast of characters that made me laugh out loud. This is a wonderful Rom-Com that deals a lot with self-esteem and not giving up. I don’t want to give away any more of this story, so just let me say, you need to pick this one up and read it. I definitely recommend this one to anyone who loves to laugh, enjoys a romance and some fun characters. I was gifted a copy of this book upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.

About the Author: A former pharmacist, I’m now a medical writer who also writes romance. Some days a racing heart is a medical condition, others it’s the reaction to a hunky hero.

I’ve two sons and a husband who asks every Valentine’s Day whether he has to buy a card (yes, he does), so any romance is all in my head. Then again, his unstinting support of my career change proves love isn’t always about hearts and flowers – and heroes come in many disguises.
