Book Review: Tremor

After losing her husband and dance partner to a motorcycle accident, ballroom showdance champion Arabelle has developed a hand tremor, making it impossible to perform the beautiful balletic feats she is known for. In her devastation, she’s lost her love of dance anyway. But when she meets Jett, a theatrical dancer specializing in daredevil aerial stunts, Arabelle feels a double tremor – one producing trepidation, the other pulsing excitement, as he evokes the bad boy ways of her husband that had so enthralled her but had also resulted in his tragedy. Can Jett help Arabelle overcome the pain of her loss, cure her trembling body, and reinvigorate her passion for dance and life? And can Arabelle tame Jett’s reckless ways before they result in his own misfortune?

I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

This has to be one of the most captivating books I have read in a long time. I wish a few of the dance terms had been more progressively defined. I can see where people who are not fluent in dance terminology would get a bit lost. 

I love the sense of character development that the author has. The author definitely had a clear depiction of where she wanted these characters to go and had a very clear (but somewhat bumpy) path to get there. 

I kinda loved to hate Arabella. She was so unkind at times! I understand the stress of being a dancer but did she have to be so mean!? It made for a great read. She eventually grew on me. She had a ton of character grown and really overcome any obstacles put in her way. She was full of determination! 

I really liked this book. It was a quick and easy read. We don’t get a lot of books involving dancers, so this was an interesting and new kind of trope-y read. 

Thank you so much to the author, the publisher, and NetGalley for allowing me to review this title.
