Book Discussion – Billionaires & Ballerinas

Hey 172 followers,

Back with another book discussion.

Remember to grab a copy before continuing because there may be spoilers.

Now onto the discussion…

I gave this book three stars. It was alright. A bit too short. Rose is a ballerina and she is planning to retire because her knees are getting pretty bad. Drew is a lawyer working for her big shot brother. They have basically been forbidden to see each other so they spend most of their time trading glances, until they decide to sneak around behind her brother’s back.

The book ended with them hooking up at Rose’s new place. That was it. After Drew got hit by a truck, he decides to push Rose away. Then he ends his partnership with her brother and seeks her out again.

The end.

That was a little disappointing because I think that there should have been more of a story surrounding her brother and his feelings about their relationship. The whole point of why they spent years staying away from each other and then sneaking around because they didn’t know how her brother would react and all we got was an ultimatum, him trying to prevent her from moving out and that was it. That entire conflict lasted about an entire chapter.

I never understand the point of novellas. Trying to fit so much into such a confined space. There was a lot missing from this story and so it left me wanting more.

That’s all for now.

Talk to you later.
