Review: Only the Brave Try Ballet by Stefanie London

braveballetHero: Grant Farley injured his hamstring on the field and must regain his flexibility quickly in order to play. He signs up for ballet lessons because he’s desperate for a “quick fix.” What he doesn’t expect is to find himself very attracted to his private tutor. Tweaking her tutu is just the kind of fun he likes.

Heroine: Jasmine Bell is a prim and proper ballerina. Or at least she was until she hurt herself. Now she can’t dance the way she loves. Pointe is completely out of the question and so is Grant Farley… he’s just like her last boyfriend. He wants a pretty thing on his arm and when she can’t be everything he wants, he’ll move onto the next model type. Grant’s determined to change her mind about him and ballet.

Review: If the hero and heroine hadn’t been injured they would never have met. It was a great premise. I liked Grant a lot as a hero. His bar fight that gets alluded to often is something he’s already taken care of, but he doesn’t want to screw up again and it gets to him. Most of his troubles feel like they are in his head. The same for the heroine. I had trouble caring about Jasmine’s fears of trying again to do proper ballet, especially once we learn that the doctor thinks its psychosomatic. So that didn’t work for me. However, Stefanie nails it on flirting and sexual chemistry. Oh la la!
