Struggling single mom Corinne Dawson doesn’t have time for fun. She’s too busy making a new life for her son and trying to avoid being dragged down by the ghost of who she used to be. But when an accident knocks her boss out of a local “Dancing With The Stars” style fund-raiser, she finds herself face-to-face with the worst mistake from her past.
One slow step forward
Attorney Tucker McGee has always seen past the prickly exterior of this former mean girl. He knows there’s more to the story than simple spite. When they get partnered for Dancing With Wishful, he finally gets the chance to act on the spark he’s felt since she moved home. But getting past her regrets just might be the biggest challenge he’s ever faced.
Two quicksteps back
As the competition heats up, so do the feelings between them. Will Tucker be able to convince Corinne that she’s more than the sum of her mistakes? Or will she be forced to leave town to find a new beginning without him?
Point of view:
3rd Person. Alternating perspectives, not always by chapter, but it’s clearly defined.
I was a little worried that because I’ve been looking forward to Tucker & Corrine’s story for so long that Kait Nolan might not have been able to live up to my expectations. I should know better!
I loved this story. Former mean girl Corrine catches the attention of town sweetheart Tucker. We learn that Tucker has actually had his eye on this single mom for quite some time. Norah has more ideas and this time Wishful has a dance contest. More townsfolk scheme landing Tucker & Corrine as partners. Toss in Corinne’s adorable son and I was totally hooked.
While absolutely a sexy romance, this is also a lovely story of repentance and redemption. There’s a fabulous HEA, for Corinne as an individual and for her relationship with Tucker.
Amy McFadden rocks this again. The emotions were strong with this one and well done. I continue to be thrilled with this writer/narrator team.
About the author:
Kait Nolan is a RITA® Award-winning Mississippi author who calls everyone sugar, honey, or darlin’, and can wield a ‘Bless your heart’ like a Snuggie or a saber, depending on requirements. She believes in love, laughter, and that tacos are the world’s most perfect food. When she’s not writing, reading, working the evil day job, or wrangling family (both the two-legged and the four-), you can find her obsessively watching The Great British Bake Off.

About the narrator:
From Amy McFadden’s website: Hi! This part is all about me. Just me. It feels weird to write a bunch of stuff about myself but I don’t like pictures of me so I’ll have to use words instead.
I live in Michigan with my fiancé, Joe Anderson. He makes me laugh so much I never have to do situps. Truthfully, I probably wouldn’t do situps anyway, but hey, it’s still a nice bonus to our love.
I’m an actress now, and I used to be a 2nd grade teacher. I loved that part of my life, but after doing it for a bunch of years, I was ready to move on to the next version of me. They’re not really very different versions-teachers and actresses both reach out and engage people through stories. I’m NOT a morning person, but waking up to tell stories makes mornings better-than-tolerable.
I love books and the Muppets and smart people and kind people (not necessarily in that order) and sleeping and chocolate and coffee and writers and learning and Oreo cookies and a bunch of other stuff-but I’m starting to make myself gag on all this love.
I hate a bunch of stuff, too, but who cares about that junk? It’s probably the same stuff you hate, so I won’t bore you. Except I REALLY hate listening to people eat bananas.
