Come Dancing by Leslie Wells takes us back to the 80’s when cell phones didn’t exist, people still read print books, and listened to actual records. Come Dancing is not only a step back in time but also a peek into the world of rock and roll, publishing, and a hot and steamy romance to wrap it all up!
Julia, in her early twenties, is a publisher’s assistant and of course a huge book lover. Her dream is to become an editor but at this point she doesn’t know if that will ever happen. Her love life really isn’t going all that well either. Having been dumped by her latest boyfriend as he went back to his wife she’s wondering if love will ever come her way. On a night out with her friend Vicky she meets Jack. Jack is a rock star and certainly not anyone she would ever imagine would be interested in her. Yet he is. And that is exciting to her.
As Jack and Julia get to know each other Jack knows that Julia is unlike any girl he’s known before. For Julia this is all so different. Jack takes her to fancy restaurants, nightclubs, parties, and even to his concert. She is really falling for him and yet she can’t give all of herself to him. If her past with men has taught her one thing it is to be careful. She doesn’t want to be hurt again. The more time she spends with him though she falls deeper and deeper into a heated romance such as she’s never had before but along with that comes the despair she feels when he doesn’t call or she hears about yet another woman that he’s been with. Can two so very different people really make a relationship work?
I enjoyed Come Dancing. It is an easy read and a good way to pass an afternoon. I found the beginning a bit slow going but as the story began to build I found myself much more invested in it. I also loved that it took place back in the 80’s as it was fun to go back to that time and realize just how much things have changed. For me I would have liked to read more about the publishing world and a little less of the bedroom antics but that’s a matter of taste. Overall though I liked the characters, the story, and especially the ending – it was a fun read and I adored Jack and Julia! For my readers who shy away from the extra steamy stuff though be warned that this is one of those reads. For those who love them – well then you’re going to love this one !

I miss the 80’s. Great times.
Sounds like the kind of book I enjoy using to break up the heavier reads.
