I was really intrigued by the premise of this novel, particularly this line a story about what happens after the happily ever When I began, I had a very specific idea for how this novel would unravel, and even though there were a few things I didn t particularly love, I was pleasantly surprised and happy with the direction the story went I liked the idea of a happily ever after even after you thought you d already had one But there were a couple of things I wish were different, which I ll addres [...]

Received ARC in exchange for an honest review Bryson, from our very first moment you stole my breath and I ve been trying to catch it ever since I kind of went blind into this book I forgot what I read in the blurb and the only think I did remember was the sentence The Dance is the story of what happens after the happily ever I think this sentence explains perfectly what the book is about I had no idea which direction the author would take This book is about Bryson and Will who have been dating [...]
3 3.5 starsThe good, the bad, and why that makes me sad I never like to read a book by an author whose previous books I ve loved and not absolutely love it However, I ve read enough books to know that you can t love them all and that s okay This is the part I don t like explaining to the author and other readers just why I didn t absolutely love the book.Disclaimer There will be extremely vague spoilers in this review I personally don t think you can figure out what I m talking about without hav [...]
4.5 starsThis was a story that put me through the emotional wringer Bryson married her high school sweetheart Will and is living a cookie cutter life with him He works hard to provide a life for them both Her role is to be a homemaker and support him in his career She may have gone to college but her qualifications will never be put to use in any career dreams she may have had Basically her whole life revolves around him but it doesn t seem to swing both ways This is definitely not an equal oppo [...]

ARC provided by author I really loved story and premise of The Dance Alison writes real life characters that go through real life situations, not many authors do that She always does tons of research for them and makes you feel the emotions I admit, I didn t like Will I had no sympathy for him and the way that he acted.Bryson was a different story, at first She was quirky and spoke her mind One thing that bugged me was she was so emotional She never spoke up for herself and she was vulnerable Sh [...]

Ho girato lentamente l ultima pagina perch non volevo separarmi da questa storia, ma poi mi sono resa conto che non sarebbe successo perch era gi entrata prepotentemente nel mio cuore.I slowly turned the last page of this book because I didn t want to separate myself from it, but i realized it would never be happened because it was already in my heart.
Wow Beautiful story This was not at all what I was expecting but I should of known from reading Alison s previous book that there are twists and turns Second chances, redemption and forgiveness is what this story was to me Very emotional and extremely touching.
4.5 starsSometimes you get what you think is the fairy tale, but reality does not turn out that way Real life has challenges and trials that can be hard to face People change And sometimes things are not always what they seem And it is easy to become what the other person wants versus exploring your own needs.Bryson and Will were high school sweethearts One night at a dance, Bryson shared a moment with Hart and had an opportunity that could have changed the course of her life, but she stayed on [...]
A top pick for 2016.The Dance by Alison G Bailey is fan freakin tastic I was blown away and SPEECHLESS As young girls, we all dream of marrying our prince, starting a family and living in a beautiful castle with a white picket fence Sounds perfect, right Well, The Dance proves that life is NOT perfect and it definitely does not always work out the way we have plannedWhat happens after the vows, when you see the other person for who they really are Turns out some Princes are really just frogs Thi [...]
I m obviously in the minority on this book because so many loved it But this one didn t work for me at all There were a lot of things that I just couldn t wrap my head around and couldn t really love any of the characters all that much The story started off really good, a young girl, in the only relationship she s ever known, but not really feeling like it s enough I was that girl on so many levels so I was totally relating to her in the beginning After the wedding was where things got complicat [...]
DNF 38%OH MY FUCKING GOD What did I just read First of, the heroine is a mental case of a doormat.Second, what a terrible terrible nutcase of a book I skimmed and skimmed, rolled my eyes and whispered WHAT THE A million times at least.We got to read, for the first quarter of the book, about the heroine pathetic, unloving, humiliating and idiotic marriage to a man who stomped all over her And she stayed with him for months and months after discovering he was cheating on her and didn t even wants [...]
I am always fascinated by the way Alison touches our souls with each new story Her books are the ones that make you think, feel, react, cry, laugh and always make us remember about our own humanity Bryson and Hart love story is exactly that They are not only a couple with a lot of baggage They are amazing human beings with a capacity to love and to be kind on very unusual circumstances They make me believe that even though life is hard we still can be thankful for every day, every night, every m [...]
4 Solid Stars Alison puts so much hard work and soul into her stories there is never a moment of lost emotions Her writing never fails to bridge the reader to her fictional characters Honestly, I struggled in the beginning and wasn t sure how this story was going to unravel I had the hardest time to have respect for Will due to the fact he was so self centered and spewed a lack of respect for others From the very beginning i was so intrigued by Hart, I wanted This turned out to be quite the sto [...]

This book was AMAZING This was such a beautiful story I really connected with Bryson she actually reminded me a lot of myself that her heart was so big and she s so full of love for everyone and tries to be there for everyone I really got her and how she dealt with her relationship with Willd ultimately with Hart Bryson grew from a naive teenager into a strong woman by the end of the book and I loved every second This story, to me, was very believable I was pulled into Bryson s story, and felt h [...]
I have enjoyed reading novels written by Alison G Bailey since the day I picked up Present Perfect back in 2013 Although Bailey writes contemporary romance and new adult novels, her writing has recently taken on a multifaceted aspect Bailey has been tackling some difficult topics, and she seems to do it with grace Part women s fiction, part contemporary romance, The Dance is a story about what occurs after Bryson Forsyth has her happily ever after I should also note that Will Forsyth and Hart Mi [...]
A review copy was provided by the author for the Blog Tour 4 Heartfelt Stars I don t even really know how to express my feelings accurately, when it comes to The Dance I feel anything I say won t do this story and it s characters justice.The Dance is my first book by Alison G Bailey and I was swept away by the storyline and the characters and all of the emotions she brought out of me while reading this book This is one story I won t be commenting on because it is a book that I believe everyone n [...]
Alison has written an absolutely perfect and amazing story with The Dance To say I loved this book is an understatement It was amazing So, so good It literally consumed me for 2 days to the point that I couldn t put it down and had to read standing at the kitchen counter so my kindle could charge.Without giving the story away I will say The Dance is beautiful, breathtaking, emotional and gut wrenching It will touch your heart in so many ways It s a story of loss, love, heartache, friendship, for [...]

Amended review Ok I ended up going back and finishing this book The last 25% was actually quite good I m not sure it was good enough to make up for the first 75% though The story had promise but the writing was so awkward and cheesy that it was hard to enjoy the story And maybe there was a little bit too much going on to be believable A good editor would have made massive cuts and suggested changes that to enhance the story Authors, its worth finding a good one.
5 stars 5 stars 5 stars But they would be 1000 So incredibly overwhelming.A heartbreaking story that just Alison G Bailey could write Tears, shivers and a deep tenderness An Original story different from others It made my heart beating One of the best book ever Thank you so much Alison G Bailey to give me a new extraordinary story.
Wow this book took an unexpected turn it was WOW
