About this ebook

It’s happened. The worst thing I could have imagined.

The fourth emotional book of the series from six-time USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy

Despite how hard we tried, the world has discovered my secret child.

Everyone is against us. Her adopted mother, my friends at the Dreamcatcher Dance Academy.

Even Blitz seems at a loss at how to handle my grief at losing my tender relationship with my little girl.

When a small ballet troupe asks me to join their ranks as a dancer, I wonder if it’s time to start over.

Leave everything behind.

Make a life for myself.

But Blitz Craven has one more plan for me.

And when he holds out his hand, I have to decide for the first time, what is it that I have always wanted?


Tender Dance is book four of the Lovers Dance series, which ends with book five, Final Dance. Each book is full length and stands alone, but should be read in series order to avoid spoilers.

Olivia grows into to her own as a woman. Tender Dance is book 4 in the Lover Dance series. While each book can be read as a standalone I strongly recommend reading them in order for the most enjoyment of the over-all story. Tender Dance is primarily about Olivia. She is invited to perform with a professional dance company for a 6-month tour. She still sees Blitz during this time but she also begins forming relationships with other people in the touring company. These are the kind of relationships that she hasn't had the opportunity to have in the past because of her parents controlling everything in her life. I don't want to give anything away but at least one of the things that's been causing Olivia pain, since she's been with Blitz, is at least partially resolved. I'm looking forward to the final book in this series to see how it all plays out. An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.

Tender Dance is a well written novel, delving deeply into the emotions and feelings that Livia is experiencing as she is firstly betrayed by her ex, and then has to make her way into the world of dance on her own terms. One hears less of Blitz in this installment of the story, however he is a still a stabilising influence in Livia's life. The author clearly brings out the dichotomy in most people's lives, that while we may have deep heartache on the one hand, we can be experiencing the most successful time of our lives on the other. Most people find that the moments when everything is going well in every aspect of your life are rare and far between. Livia went through highs and lows of emotions and had to work hard to overcome the influence they had on her performance, especially taking into account that she is an artistic person and therefore more inclined towards mood swings. For the most part this installment of the life and times of Livia and Blitz left me feeling a little depressed, although the book did end on a positive note. I received a copy of this book as a gift and this is my honest and voluntary review.

Deanna Roy succeeded in writing another beautiful story about hardship, pain, strength, determination and most of all Love. I think this was my favorite book out of the series, though I loved them all. I loved seeing Livia grow as a person and come into here own. Seeing her on her own and making a name for herself in a world she's not completely familiar with was pretty awesome. Blitz is such a sweet, caring man who stands by her side while Livia coupes with the lost of seeing her daughter. He promotes Livia as she follows her dreams and figures out what she wants in life. It was a very touching story. I can't wait to read the next book.
