Eleanor Westwood strikes a deal with her neighbor: if Max withdraws the complaint that stopped renovation on her dance studio, she’ll help him with his movie score.
Being a muse shouldn’t be hard, right? For Eleanor there’s too much at stake to fail. She just never realized that rousing Max’s imagination means rousing his passion too—for the music, and for Eleanor herself.
5 / 5 Stars
In Dancing on a Moonbeam: Part 2, Kate Perry continues her sweet second chance romance. Eleanor and Max are both reeling from their kiss. Neither is looking for a relationship, but both of them wants more than just that kiss.
Eleanor and Max are also able to come up with a compromise so Eleanor can finish her studio. She volunteers to be his muse and finds herself finding her own groove with dancing. But nothing is ever that simple and Eleanor soon find another hiccup in the renovation of her dance studio.
The slow-burn romance of Dancing on a Moonbeam heats up in Part 2. It was just as sweet as Part 1, but with a lot more sizzle. I loved the way Eleanor and Max have figured out how to work together. It was also fun to see Eleanor figure out where she’s lacked in friendships in the past and how much she wants to reclaim those friends. My favorite parts of the story, though; are the conversations between Max and Eleanor’s daughter. His words to her got through to her in a way others couldn’t. I loved that.
I’m truly loving this second chance romance series. It’s different from the other novels I have read by Perry as the characters seem more mature, but it’s just as beautifully written. It tells a story many readers will be able to identify with. I can’t wait to find out how the story wraps up in Part 3!
I would caution readers that this is the second part of a three part novella series. I would not suggest skipping Part 1 before reading this. The story gradually builds throughout the three parts. Plus, Part 1 was so much fun to read! (You can find my review for it here.)
