Cooper James is no stranger to loss. He had to hit rock bottom before making his way to the top. After losing his dad, Cooper has to take on the responsibility left to him. He now owns his father’s bar and also cares for his mom who struggles greatly with their loss. He is sexy, put together and protects what he loves. Listening, playing and writing music is his outlet.
Emma Harris is a simple girl. She loves country music, her friends and family. She hasn’t had the best of luck with men, but that doesn’t hold her back. She is beautiful, outgoing and full of life.
When Cooper and Emma have a chance encounter at a concert, it is an instant connection. They have a romantic, hot and meaningful relationship. Cooper is the verse to Emma’s chorus.
However, what happens when tragedy strikes?
When lives are shattered. When the music stops playing.
Is it possible for their hearts to keep dancing?
So I came by this book quite randomly whilst I was browsing one day. I had not previously come across Heather Dahlgren’s books, and I love finding new Indie authors. After reading the synopsis I decided to give Dancing Hearts a go. I sure am glad that I have found her now!
Cooper is a man who has too many responsibilities and not enough time to let loose and have fun. Since his father died, he has taken over the running of the family bar and other than helping out with his mum, has little time for women and definitely even less time for a relationship.
On the other hand, Emma is full of life and passionate about what is important to her – family, friends, her job and having fun. Emma wants nothing more than to find a man that treats her right and has the same outlook on life as she does.
When Cooper and Emma have a chance meeting at a concert, everything between them happens very quickly. When faced with some major obstacles to their relationship, can Emma & Cooper find the strength to get through it?
I really liked this book. It is one hot and steamy read. There were times when I was reading it that I thought my kindle might self combust with the sexiness. Cooper was the perfect blend of gentleman and beast. Just what I love.
And Emma, I love a strong female character that is able to fight for what she wants. She was a great blend of strong and sassy.
What surprised me about this book was the level of angst that was introduced. I was completely not expecting what happened and I could not help but feel for Cooper and Emma.
This book was well written and the storyline well thought out. It was an easy and enjoyable read. I would recommend this book for lovers of steamy romances. I will definitely be reading some more books by Heather Dahlgren in the future.
