Dancer's Heart

Goodreads  Amazon B&N Kobo 
 Dancer's Heart
 Simon Leander is living a lie. He hides the truth from his partner in a relationship he's determined to tolerate…jealousy, rants and all. Michael was supposed to be the love of his life and he's not ready to let go of that dream even though the romantic has turned tyrant.
Then Drew appears and a little at a time Simon's determination starts to waver. Drew is everything Michael used to be but isn't anymore. Drew also knows his secret.
When the truth about Simon's double life bursts into the light he must decide whether he can trust Drew and if love deserves a second chance. 


****The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review****
This was a satisfying gay romance. It wasn't just a boy meets boy and lives happily ever after. This was a story of a man searching for that happily ever after, taking a disastrous step into an unhappy and unhealthy and getting his way out of it.
Simon thought that he had found the love of his life, but Michael ended up being a nightmare. Jealous unpredictable possessive tantrums really put a dampener on things. Insecurities in a relationship are everyone's worst nightmare.
I struggled with Simon's inability to quit this relationship. Nobody should accept abuse and for him to excuse it instead of moving forward frustrated and annoyed me. However, I know how we can all me blinded by love or the acquisition of love.
I liked the writing of this book though, I felt it flowed. Even though it was a shortish book, only 141 on my reader, it didn't feel rushed. Characters didn't seem flat but rather well developed as well.
All in all, I enjoyed this romance and I would read other books by this author.
