In the glamorous world of ballroom, love and dancing do not always mix.
Professional dancer Anita Goodman has learned that lesson the hard way. With her studio and her reputation on the line, she has to take a chance on the last person she ever wanted to partner with: her best friend.
Patrick O’Leary has loved Anita since high school, but he has languished in the Friend Zone for long enough. He will take this last chance to prove to her that love is greater than winning.
Neither of them realize that conquering their rising attraction won’t be their biggest obstacle. Someone does not want them to be together, and will stop at nothing to get their way.
Love, dance, and danger. It’s a Ballroom Blitz.

This was ok. there was something about the style that didn't suck me into it, but it had a good intrigue line that wasn't super obvious, a bit of drama, and romance.
This ARC was provided to me via Kindle, from Wild Rose Press, Inc and #NetGalley. Thank you for the opportunity to preview and review. Opinions expressed are completely my own.
I struggled with this one and had a hard time finishing it.
I enjoyed the multiple POVs (Anita, Patrick plus 2 more characters- briefly) that really help move the story along.
It was fun to see the victim being the MMC, since it usually the FMC.
I loved the mystery of whodunnit- it had me guessing most of the book. When it was revealed it all clicked.
Closed door romance, but you could feel the heat of their passion when they danced!
The cover of Ballroom Blitz is indeed a bit blitz. At first glance, I thought it was a giant spatter of blood. But it turned out to be a ballroom gown. Ah well, I think that this pretty much is how the story goes. with the changing of POV, you can see the story unfold between Anita and Patrick.
But inbetween you can see the story through the eyes of the stalker. At first, it is a bit confusing, but it will get clearer throughout the book. The friends-to-lowers romance is a bit slow, and I sometimes wanted to smack Patrick on the head.
In all, an amusing read with the added suspense of the stalker. Three out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
