About the Book:

For Trey DeLuca, the idea of settling down was entirely unsettling. As VP of sales for his family’s wine company, he’s never in any one city—or with any one woman—for long, which is how he likes it. But when family obligations keep him temporarily grounded in his hometown, he finds the perfect distraction. She’s sweet, gorgeous, and sexy as hell…only her life screams commitment.

Between raising her son and struggling to keep her dance school afloat, Sara Reed has her hands full. Dance students she needs—a steamy tangled sheets cha-cha with a self-admitted commitment-phobe? Not going to happen. But sparks fly as the town prepares for a big Valentine’s Day gala, and Trey strikes a deal with Sara…he’ll “manny-up” and watch her son in exchange for ballroom lessons.

With love quickstepping ever closer, Sara needs to teach this playboy some new steps or risk losing him—and her heart—forever.

My Review:

Marina Adair is one of my favorite romance authors and I am in love with the St. Helena Vineyard series so I had high hopes for this one. Sadly it didn’t grab me the way the previous books have. Trey was ok but nothing dazzling for me. He was just missing that spark his brothers held. Sara didn’t grab me at all. I adored her son but Sara was just blah to me. There was a point towards the end of the book I actually completely disagreed with her behavior and this coming from someone who also has small kids. I get she was afraid of disappointing her son but I felt she was behaving selfishly too.

I did love almost every scene that included the rest of the DeLuca clan. Trey’s brothers were just as endearing as in their own books, I loved seeing glimpses of their wives and children and was happy to see Frankie even making appearances. Chichi and her cronies cracked me up and honestly everything except Trey and Sara were fabulous.

So while not a favorite in the series the rest of the family managed to save the story.

    She’s one I still need to try. Bummer it wasn’t quite up to the rest of them. Seems there’s almost always one in a series where that happens.
