Publisher's Summary

Adam and Luc used to be close. At least they were before Luc distanced himself from Adam at 14, then eventually left home. Adam never got over the sting of betrayal, or the loss of his one-time best friend.

When Luc is invited back home to help get his parents' failing dance school back on track, Adam isn't sure he can cope with having his stepbrother back in his life. Especially when he discovers Luc's decade-old secret.

Luc left home because he was sure no one would understand that he had fallen in love with his stepbrother. Convinced that the years of distance he has put between them will have erased his desire, Luc doesn't hesitate to return home to help the business that means everything to his parents. 

Confronted by Adam once more, Luc's past feelings reawaken. But will revealing his true feelings to Adam heal the rift between them, or drive them even further apart?

This novel contains explicit language and sex scenes between stepbrothers.

Narration definitely made the story better

The audible version of this book was nice. The narrator did a good job of portraying the differences in the characters. Projecting their pain and fear nicely.

Luc has been in love with Adam since they were teenagers. Leaving his home to get away from the feelings he had for his step brother. Adam was devastated when his brother pulled away from him and left him and his parents.

Years later Luc returns to help the family try and save their dance studio. Still in love with Adam and fighting the feelings until he can’t anymore. When he finally tells Adam the truth both of their worlds are changed.

So much angst in this book. Reiterating over and over that they are brothers did get a little annoying. It took a while for me enjoy the characters. It seemed as if Luc pushed his feeling on to Adam, expecting him to feel the same love that he did instantly, not letting it come organically. That said, the story did improve.

Emotional and perfect...

A Dance For Two by Colette Davison is the story of two step brothers who fall in love.

Growing up, Adam and Luc were close... until one day Luc started to back off and left Adam wondering what happened to take his step brother from best friend to bully. It's a betrayal that still stings years later when Luc comes back home to help their parents out at their family dance studio.

Eventually Adam finds out the reason why Adam had to back away and eventually leave - he is in love with him, always has been and still am. Will the truth set them free and heal their scars or will it tear their family apart forever?

This story is very interesting and entertaining. Heartbreaking, emotional, passionate and a good dose of angst, the story will have you engrossed, feeling raw emotions. The characters of Luc and Adam are perfect together. Their journey together to mend their past hurts and find a Happily Ever After captivates and leaves you satisfied.

For the Audiobook- the story is narrated by Neil McFarlane and is an outstanding performance. A smooth and easy to listen to voice that brings the characters to life.

I received an advanced reader's copy of the book and I am voluntarily leaving my honest review and recommendation.

Set in the UK and ballet world

I’ve read this author before. This was a mm contemporary story with Luke and Adam, step brothers as the main characters. I listened to the audiobook. This book was set in the UK in the ballet world. I’ll read more from this author.

finished it in almost one go.

I struggled a little at the beginning because Adam was so bitter. Once they started getting along better the story sucked me in and I had to know the rest.

Excellent narration

I loved the storyline and narration but "brother" was mentioned every other sentence and that is the only fault I have.

heartwarming

Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Were there any parts I found annoying: there were a lot of reminders of we're brothers / step brothers.
Did I feel an emotional connection to the characters: not really
Would I listen to it again: there are others i'd listen too before it

Colette Davison writes a heartwarming tale of a difficult relationship between step-siblings as they mend past hurts and search out their HEA. I didn't really feel an emotional connection to the characters in this book as I have with others, there was just something missing with Adam's character that didn't really pull me into the story.

Neil Macfarlane did a reasonable narration. It was very evenly performed but there were times I felt it needed more emotion / intonation, however - overall an easy listen for a lazy Sunday.

Something was off

Something was a bit off about this one. I liked it. Adam and Luc are amazing characters. There was no transition from step brothers to boyfriends. Its like the author tried so hard to rub the step brothers trope in to her story that she forgot the rest.

as good as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:


5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening, but not more then twice a year.
it's like a B

I enjoyed this story

I liked the story very much. This book had many things i love, dancing, step brothers, bad relationship between characters and then finding out that the reason for bullying and mistreatment was feelings of love and lust. I did not love narration. I felt narrator was just reading the story fast and I did not express the depth of emotions and character growth the story had. I still enjoyed listening to the book because the writing was so very good and when I chose the slower narration speed it was better. I recommend this story to readers who enjoy romance with a bit of taboo and hot and steamy scenes. I am looking forward to more books by this author.

Good story, with lots of feels. Good narration.

I've not read the e book, but loved the sound of the story and I like my audible books . I was really impressed with the narration, Mr MacFarlane isn't a narrator I've come across before, but I thought that he did a really good job. l listened to some of this whilst sitting in front of the fire, with a glass of wine, perfect! There is some angst and the story does have some depth, it was well written and quite compelling. There’s plenty of emotion, some angst and lots of feels. A good listen, which I would certainly recommend.

Sweet and sexy!

🌟🌟🌟🌟 4.25 stars
🔥🔥🔥 Heat Level: 3.75

Sweet and sexy!

Now I love Colette’s work and this story has the same care and heart you come to expect from Colette but with a steamy and somewhat ‘taboo’ twist. A stepbrothers love story that just proves you can’t help who you fall in love with! I loved both Adam and Luc and could feel their emotions as they are somewhat forced to reunite. I liked that we got to know them and their lives before we were thrown into their love story and I liked the feelings behind their passion.

Luc has been in love with his sep brother since he was 14 and those feelings are what created the wedge and distance between them. When Luc returns home to help their parents with their struggling dance school, all those feelings come back to the surface and bubble over!

Adam doesn’t know why his brother suddenly started hating him when they were teens but now that Luc is home Adam realizes he’s still angry and resentful towards Luc. When Luc feelings are revealed, at first Adam is repulsed at the thought but his subconscious has other ideas and he realizes he IS attracted to Luc but is it just lust?

I found their chemistry believable and their story sweet and sexy. My only caveat is that the story kept mentioning “my brother” and then correcting to “stepbrother”. I felt that once they accepted their attraction they were partners and no longer “brothers”, so the continuing to refer to it did become a little too “kinky” for me. But other than that it’s a steamy, sexy and sweet stepbrother to lovers romance, with dance! Great narration too!!

Thanks for reading!

It's sweet

I bought this as my first ever audio book, I wanted to start out slowly with something sweet.

And this certainly is sweet with a hint of the anxiety thrown in to the mix with the two step-brothers and their parents reaction to the reveal of their relationship.

I halfly wished their initial feud would have lasted longer, with Adam holding on to his anger longer, it would have made more sense. Especially since his brother were part of tormenting him and his best friend along with his bullies.
But it seemed not to have crossed his mind too long after being told he brother did because he loved him.

This one needed a bit more kick to it, yes it have hot scenes and it was sweet but it needed that bit more.
Neil McFarlane's voice is a pleasure to listen to, he narrates the book perfectly and it's recommended to give it a try.
