Release Day Book Brief: Ballerina Dad by Amy Aislin

ballerina dadTitle ~ Ballerina Dad

Author ~ Amy Aislin

Published ~ 11th December 2017

Genre ~ Contemporary M/M Romance, Holiday





Attending his daughter’s holiday dance recital should be easy for pro hockey player Patrick Barnes. Showing up in a tutu, however, wasn’t exactly part of the plan. And yet the holidays get even more interesting when he bumps into Lee, the man he let get away years ago.
Ballet instructor Lee can’t believe who just walked into his studio. He also can’t believe how quickly the flare of attraction between he and Patrick resurfaces, despite the years that have gone by since they last spoke.
Once upon a time, they let opportunities get away. Is it possible they’ll now have the chance to pursue the spark that has come back to life after just one conversation?
Holidays are a time for giving, and neither Patrick nor Lee are about to take this particular gift for granted.


Cheryl’s Book Brief

This is a lovely little book and just right for a cosy Christmas read.

The book is full tenderness and sweet humour that at no point sinks into saccharin or corniness.

Patrick is a rough, tough, professional hockey player. He has grown men quaking in their skates, but one little girl has him wrapped tightly around her adorable finger, to the point he turns up at the mother-and-daughter Christmas dance at her ballet school wearing a tutu. He’s mortified to discover he’s the only one. Even worse, he meets an old flame, who happens to be Jordan’s dance teacher – while glittering.

This is the start of a lovely, sensitive, sweet, and sensual love story. I would have loved the book to be longer, to find out more about Pat and Lee. That being said, the book is complete in itself and is not one of those that needs more words to fully flesh out the story. It’s perfectly crafted just as it is.

This is definitely a book to read curled up under a blanket with a cocoa at your side and a few hours of nothing to do. It’s a “can’t put down” book so don’t start it before bed. It is full of feels and will leave you smiling and fuzzy. The ending was particularly satisfying. I highly recommend at Christmas or any time of the year.
