Publisher: Entangled Teen Crush

Isabelle Oster has dreamed of being a prima ballerina her entire life, so when the only male dancer backs out of the fall production, she’s devastated. Without a partner, she has no hope of earning a spot with the prestigious Ballet Americana company. Until hot jock Garret practicing stretches in one of the studios gives Izzy an idea, and she whips out her phone. But does she really want this badly enough to resort to blackmail?

All-state tight end Garret Mitchell will do anything to get a college football scholarship. Even taking ballet, which surprisingly isn’t so bad, because it means he gets to be up close and personal with the gorgeous Goth girl Izzy while learning moves to increase his flexibility. But Izzy needs him to perform with her for the Ballet Americana spot, and he draws the line at getting on stage. Especially wearing tights.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a bit of blackmail, a lot of sarcasm, and an ending guaranteed to melt your heart.

#MyThoughts

I admire someone who dance ballet. I do not think I would have their patience when it comes to improving a position... #justsaying

I think I have a not-so-secret love for cute young adult romance books. They are lovely, and sometimes, they are also what you need to relax while reading. Plus, I did enjoy reading Offsetting Penalties.

This book has two amazing characters who --I can assure you-- have crystal-clear what they want to do with their lives. And they both want to do what they love most --football and ballet. Hence, no matter what, they are ready to do whatever it takes in order to make them come true. Furthermore, Izzy has a soft spot even if she does not want people to know it. So, when it comes to blackmailing others? I will just say that she is better at dancing. Garret... oh boy! He got the moves. I could definitely picture him dancing ballet.

Overall, this book is a clear demonstration that you do not have to judge someone for their exterior. And despite the fact that there was a moment/scene -almost at the end- when I felt it was too forced. It was an amazing reading and plot.

Highly recommended.

Book: +4 love-football-and-ballet stars!

Ally lives in Texas with three kids, four dogs, two cats, a rabbit, assorted reptiles, and her husband. When she’s not writing, you can find her reading, binge watching Psych, Scream, Younger, and superhero movies, and letting dogs in and out of the house. She loves to cook but hates to clean up afterwards, and strongly believes that Disney World is truly magical. You can find Ally on her website, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, though she makes no claims of using any of them properly.
