About the Book:
Evie Thomas doesn’t believe in love anymore. Especially after the strangest thing occurs one otherwise ordinary afternoon: She witnesses a couple kiss and is overcome with a vision of how their romance began . . . and how it will end. After all, even the greatest love stories end with a broken heart, eventually.
As Evie tries to understand why this is happening, she finds herself at La Brea Dance studio, learning to waltz, fox-trot, and tango with a boy named X. X is everything that Evie is not: adventurous, passionate, daring. His philosophy is to say yes to everything–including entering a ballroom dance competition with a girl he’s only just met.
Falling for X is definitely not what Evie had in mind. If her visions of heartbreak have taught her anything, it’s that no one escapes love unscathed. But as she and X dance around and toward each other, Evie is forced to question all she thought she knew about life and love. In the end, is love worth the risk?
This YA Romance was beautiful!
The characters were lovely, I didn’t want this book to end as I loved spending time with them all.
The romance was sweet! As this was a YA Romance, the clean love story was a perfect fit.
The dancing was really fun. It did take a backseat to the rest of the story and was only mentioned here and there, but it made for a nice backdrop.
The bit of magical realism added to the story made this sparkle with extra special charm.
Romance readers should pick this one up for a light, happy read!
