When reporter Sherry Wilson-Wong wakes up in bed with ballet bad-boy Alexi Davydenko, she knows she’s crossed the line. But the dancer with the body of Apollo and the panty-removing stare wasn’t talking, so what choice did she have? Playing his little drinking game – a shot and a kiss for every answer – seemed like the perfect way to loosen his sexy lips. She gets her story, he gets his fun, win-win.
But his answers only lead to more questions. And Alexi wants more than fun.
Investigating into the ballet company’s shadowy secrets, Sherry learns that the beauty on stage masks ugly dealings, some of which seem to bear Alexi’s signature. But the more truths she exposes, the more lies she is forced to tell herself.
That digging up dirt on a company with ties to the Russian mob isn’t dangerous. That licking every inch of Alexi’s naked body while hunting down evidence of his guilt isn’t a conflict of interest. That with each touch, each kiss, she isn’t falling deeper in love with the very man who could destroy her.

Sherry, a reporter, will do anything to discover the truth – even if it means putting her own life in danger. Her mother always told her if she goes looking for trouble, she will find it. Unfortunately, Sherry finds just that, in the form of Ukrainian Dance God, Alexi Davydenko and the ballet company he works for.
Dance With Me by Author Hazel Hughes combines erotic romance with suspense, making for a thrilling page-turner! Sherry Wilson-Wong was a very likeable protagonist. I admired her drive and bravery. It was enjoyable to read the story through her point-of-view.
I’m hopeful for a sequel, because Dance With Me has series potential for sure. I would love to read more about Sherry and her investigations. I can see her stirring up all sorts of trouble. 🙂 And “trouble” makes for a fun read!
I would recommend this read to fans of erotic romance and fans of suspense. If you’re a fan of both, all the better!
“This wasn’t about his cool green gaze or the muscles that rippled under his shirt or the way his slight accent made something stir in the pit of her stomach. This was work.”
“Ethically, investigating the company that her lover was employed by wasn’t the cleanest, but this was a big break, and she had been in the reporting game long enough to know that opportunities like this didn’t come around often. Maybe even less often than sexy Ukrainian dance gods.”
“If you go looking for trouble, you will find it.”
“I love your beauty and your strength and your hardness. I love your ambition and your need to find the truth. I love that you are not afraid to search for it, even if it means putting your life in danger.”
“Ballet was a billion-dollar business. And where big money was involved, things got ugly, no matter how pretty they appeared on the surface.”
