#Book #Review...On Pointe, A MacLaine Girls #Novella by Shelly Ellis...A #Goodread

She’s in the mood for a little distraction . . . but will she take a chance?

Bina MacLaine is having a rough time. Still haunted by an ugly breakup that meant walking away from her fiancรฉ and her high-rise apartment, now the dance teacher faces the possibility of losing her job, too, if her performance academy closes. When Maurice Hewett, one of her old ballet students, arrives in town, Bina sees he’s not the goofy boy she once knew—but a very handsome, very sexy grown man. She wonders if he can weave a spell that can help her forget all her woes. But can Bina let her desire take the lead without feeling like she’s robbing the cradle—and making a huge mistake?

The Sexy Nerd ‘Revue’

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and throwing an iced latte on top of her fiancรฉ’s head. Yes, Bina was all serious when it came to the art of dance, but where her heart was concerned, that was a completely different matter altogether. Bina had it all—a good man (so she thought), career and a loving mother. Well, two out of three ain’t bad. It was time for Bina to face some serious facts—she had to let go the love of her life because he couldn’t contain his love to just her. 

While Bina is licking her wounds and moving forward in life, a blast from her past comes through the doors of her mother’s dance academy—an old student she used to teach nicknamed Mo. Back in the day, Maurice Hewett was a smart eleck kid goofing off in class and trying to be the class clown. Hmm, Mo is now twenty-two, has lived a little and grown up to be a full grown man. No, Mo was not a little boy by any means and Bina couldn’t help but feel an electrical charge every time this brother came her way. 

And that, readers, is where the story begins to heat up! I have to say I really enjoyed the story. I am so not the romance reader by any means, but this was a novella and I figured a little genre change would do this reader some good and I’m glad I took a gamble on this cute story. On Pointe had all the ingredients for a romco story line. Well written and quite engaging. I’ll have to check out the rest of the series one day. If you haven’t read this, you should give it a try. It works up fast and gets right to the point, no pun intended. Happy Reading!
