Dimitri's baby brother got his HEA!

I did wish I was emotionally invested in their romance though; the whole story was very good but it would have been amazing had I been into the characters more. But objectively speaking, Dance All Night is a super cute Christmas story.

So Jess had dated some guys who weren't honest with her about what they wanted and dumped her when things got serious so she doesn't date guys from the industry because of this experiences and because she doesn't think they would settle down with her. 
And Nik enters in that category, they met and had a mind blowing kiss but he went away for work the next day and they meet again a year later.
And suddenly Nik wants to settle down and have something serious with her but Jess doesn't believe him. What she doesn't know is that he had changed in the past months and he isn't the guy he used to be. Now he has to prove her that he loves her. 

In three Christmas inspired dates. So cute! 

I liked that he didn't play games, he's honest with her since the beginning and she doesn't believe him at first but she learns to. Nik is an amazing guy, he's a real gentleman, he respects her boundaries and he put her first and he cares about her. He's the real deal.

Jess was insecure and a little immature at the beginning, and I love reading about flawed female characters, don't get me wrong, she's amazing but she wasn't perfect and that made me love her more. 

As always I loved the multicultural factor, Nik is from Ukraine so he talks about their traditions and he sometimes says things in Russian (I love it) while Jess is a black woman from Chicago

Also I learned a lot about dance thanks to this saga and in this case I learned about Lindy hop (it's a kind of swing) .

Overall a cute, fun and sexy Christmas novella

What did you do when you'd never bothered to imagine the man of your dreams, yet he showed up anyway?
In just three dates and a kiss, he could be hers. 

Dance All Night is a heartwarming, feel-good pick-me-up story about Broadway hotshot Nik Kovalenko converting  Ballroom champion Jess Davenport that Christmas miracles exist and he'll be the man for her. 

This quick and fun read had more heart, emotions and depth than I have experienced in a long while with a novella. 
Get this book if you're in need of ANY of the below :)
- a heartthrob who's considerate, trustworthy, and good to-the-bone
- a champion heroine with a big heart she's sceptical of giving away 
- some fabulous, sexy, and not over-the-top Christmas spirit
- a thoroughly enjoyable read that's low on angst
- a multi-layered diverse cast of characters.

This can definitely be read as a stand-alone even though readers of the first two books will love to see the characters from book one and two of the series. 

P.S. I've received  an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and ideas are my own and freely given without bias. #NetGalley #DanceAllNight #DanceAllNightADanceOffHolidayNovella

This was a fun, fairly fluffy novella that reverses the usual he's a grump/she's a rainbow dynamic. Jess is a bit of a Scrooge and Nik is an unapologetic fan of all things holiday. The one thing that didn't quite work for me was the conflict was one of those that could have been resolved with a single logical question and answer. Nevertheless, I don't expect huge conflict from novella-length work and I always enjoy returning to the Dance Off universe. Looking forward to the next full-length novel in the series! 

I was given an advance reader's copy in exchange for an honest review.

Dance All Night  was a really fluffyyy and cute holiday novella.  Nik was just the sweetest guy and i loved Jess whose a bit of a Scrooge. There's lovely dance scenes in this and the dates Nik planned were all so well thought out and adorable. 

We get to see characters from the previous books but this can very much be read as a standalone if you haven't yet read books 1 and 2. 

This was exactly what I needed to read right now being sick and all. (flu leave meeee) Who doesn't love sweet heroes, and Nik is just that. I liked that he's the romantic and Jess is the realist who doesn't buy into the hype of Christmas but through their dates she gets to see what it means for Nik and maybeeee (she totally did) fell under the spell of it and Nik :) 

I have to add at no time did I feel like Nik was trying to force his love of Christmas on Jess. It was a genuine sharing of something he loves by incorporating little things into their dates that he knows Jess would love too. 

It was a quick read and perfect pick me up.
