Strictly Come Dating

Kathryn Freeman

Contemporary Romance
Fun, feel-good and a must read for fans of Strictly Come Dancing! Saturday nights are strictly for dancing… As the glitter ball shimmers and sequins flash, forty-year-old Maggie remembers the pull of the dancefloor. But now, as a newly divorced mum of two, Maggie’s certain her dancing days are over. Or are they…? Encouraged by her friends, Maggie dusts off her silver stilettoes and enrols for dancing classes, all she needs now is the perfect partner. Enter Seb. Young, carefree and hot as hell, Seb is definitely a perfect 10! Even though everything about him is outrageously inappropriate! But as Seb sweeps her across the dancefloor every week, Maggie begins to see a new side to him; kind, caring, funny, strong. And Maggie realises that he’s the only one she’d like to foxtrot with…perhaps even forever?

This book contains:

  • References to cheating spouse
  • References to a severe health problem
  • Death of a parent.

Maggie is a 37 year old GP with two young girls — Penny and Tabby — and an ex who barely even calls to speak to Penny and Tabby. She’s locked herself down to her life revolving around ensuring Penny and Tabby have everything that she wished she’d had growing up. Being as organised as she is, it means everything fits to a schedule and she doesn’t do spontaneous things.

Seb is 27 and has returned home from Australia to help care for his dad as he recovers from a heart attack. He’s the carefree, no roots, go with the flow king of guy who is everything Maggie can’t stand.

Seb has returned home and is staying with his sister when he comes home one Saturday night to find his sisters and their friends all watching Strictly Come Dancing. He’s immediately drawn to Maggie and finds ways to insert himself into her life. Whether it’s helping Penny with homework, emergency childcare or making sure she has a suitable dance partner, he’s there.

Meanwhile, Maggie is fighting with every instinct in her body to keep away from Seb. He’s charming and always ready to be there, but he’s 10 years younger. While she fights with the public perception of her being with a much younger man, not to mention how it’ll impact her daughters, Seb keeps fighting his way in.

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to read this!

I got this off NetGalley what feels like a year ago an I’ve FINALLY had time to read it. I’m sure I read some good reviews at the time so I’m kicking myself that I left this so long coz I loved it!

It was so much fun to read, and because Kathryn spread the romance out over like 6 months, it didn’t feel rushed. It felt organic and real which made it all the better.

The little steps they both took, the challenges they faced together, the respect they had for one another the whole time was amazing. Even when they had their moments, they reacted like I think most of us would, but then found ways to reconnect, communicate and move forwards.

And the epilogue! OMG!

I couldn’t have asked for a better ending. It just felt perfect for every character.
