My review: I used to not consider myself a "romance" genre reader. I now stand corrected. This book was an incredible story with incredible romance! The characters were so real. 

Single mom Lauren is a ballroom dancer. She divides her time between her love of dancing and her 5 year old daughter with autism. When Lauren and her partner find out they are getting a huge sponsor, they are at first excited. Then Lauren realizes that the sponsor is Alex and wants to refuse his generous offer. Due to bad experiences with this man, Lauren wants nothing to do with him. She also realizes that with her current situation, she can't turn this offer down. Being a single mom and raising a daughter with special needs, Lauren knows she must put her personal feelings behind her.

The hurt of the past tries to come back to haunt Lauren. Will this keep Lauren from feeling the heat and passion rolling off of Alex? His desire and need for her is almost tangible in this book. Who wouldn't want to have Alex lusting after them? Oh Lauren...due to the past, she is determined to keep Alex at arm's length.

This story is woven with the heartache of being a parent, being protective of your child and still trying to have a life of your own and dreams and meshes them into a beautiful story. I was hooked on this book from the very beginning. The characters are all so well written and the story line flows so beautifully.

If you love a good romance story that had a lot of meaning behind it, this book is a MUST READ!
