Dance For Me (Fenbrook Academy #1)Author: Helena Newbury
Publisher: Foster & Black New Adult
Number of Pages: 259

"Natasha is one of the most promising ballet dancers at the prestigious Fenbrook Academy of Performing Arts and she’s just landed a life-changing audition. But no one knows the guilt she carries...or the damage it makes her inflict on herself when she’s alone.
Darrell is a multi-millionaire designer at 25. But past traumas have pushed him into isolation and the intense pressure of his work has brought him to the edge of burnout. Seeking inspiration, he sees Natasha dance and hires her as his muse.
As she dances for him, the two become entwined in a passionate but troubled relationship. He starts to see the pain inside her and helps her gradually lower her defenses...but Darrell has demons of his own. Can two broken people save each other? Or will the darkness they’re hiding consume them both?"
Gah! This book!I adore it, I loved it, I just couldn't get enough. Of course I got my hands on the next books ASAP, but that's a story for tomorrow.

Natasha's a ballet dancer, #jealous, but she's got issues too. I loved her soo much. She's such a believable character and I loved how she had an issue that we see a lot in today's society-especially with teens. She inflicts pain on herself and she knows it's wrong but she just can't stop. 

Darrell is a freaking gazillionaire-haha just kidding, he's only a multi-millionaire-and he's good looking and smart. Can I just get a fan and a mop to pick up this ocean of drool around me. Damn! This man is amazing. He's dealing with so much, all these demons, and yet he's still so lovable!
The characters in this book just deserve an award-no, Helena you deserve an award, and I deserve a cupcake! But seriously I loved the characters. They were very realistic and amazing, I just fell in love.
"You're beautiful," he said,and it was so out of nowhere that I wobbled."Sorry" he said quickly."But you are."
The chemistry between  these two was there from the beginning and you could easily see it, I'm pretty sure even a blind person could tell. It was really adorable how they both interacted with each other.  It was the type of love and awesomeness that everyone wants to find in their life. 

The plot was very well developed except in one or two places but that was minor and I didn't really care for it because I was too focused on Natasha and Darrell (where do I find a man like that?!?). 

I do really recommend that you pick this book up, but be aware this book has some situations that only people 17/18 years or older might be comfortable reading.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars!!
