After my scumbag of a boyfriend cheats on me, my plan is simple.1. Run away to college.2. Find a remedy for this heartache because it’s not found in ice-cream, contrary to popular belief.
The plan is perfect.
Until a conversation with my crazy roommate, that starts with staying fit and ends with a search for healthy penises, results in me accidentally enrolling us in a kizomba dance class because of the aforementioned quest.
Our dance instructor, Remi, turns out to be a condescending jerk, who enjoys making me squirm under his smoking, amber gaze. When he starts calling me “darling” in that low, husky voice, my dreams turn a little dirty.
But just when I think things are getting better, I find out that sexy Remi has his own secrets …
Revised plan:1. Avoid the enigmatic dance instructor.2. Repeat step one over, and over, and over again.
This should be easy, right?

Darling Dance With Me by Aisling Magic was a cute, fun and fast- paced read. I usually struggle with novellas as there may not be sufficient character development or the story feels rushed. This was not the case with this story. The story which had a lot going on, featured a tightly written plot and we’ll developed characters.
In this book we meet college bound Kaci who recently broke up with her boyfriend, who cheated on her with her best friend. To get far away from the situation, she moved in to her dorm before her classes began. To keep her mind occupied, keep her boy in shape and meet new people, she signed up for Zumba classes at the prompting of her off the wall roommate. However, instead of Zumba she mistakenly signed up for Kizomba. (I had to Google this as it’s the first I am hearing of it). It was here she met the arrogant, but sexy and handsome dance instructor, Remi.
Their initial meeting did not go so well. Despite the attraction that sizzled between them, Kaci thought he was arrogant. However, the more time she spent in his company she learnt that first impressions are not necessarily correct.
I loved Kaci and Remi both as individuals and as a couple. Remi had a lot going on in his life and my heart broke for him. Kaci too had her share of issues.
I enjoyed this heart-warming, fun and sweet story. I fell in love with the characters featured in this story. They evoked feelings of sympathy and laughter. My favourite being Candee, Kaci’s friend and roommate. I also loved the romance which developed between the main characters.
Overall, I enjoyed Darling Dance With Me. If you are for a quick and fun summer read, then look no further. I would definitely read more from this author.
