Book Review: The Ballerina & The Fighter

The Ballerina & The Fighter by Ursula Sinclair: New Adult Contemporary Romance. Due to the mature subject matter recommended for 18+

I travel through life dancing.

All I ever wanted to do was dance, as did my best friend. We'd made so many plans together, but one night an explosion changed it all. Only one of us survived, and I promised myself I'd succeed for us both. And I did, until an accident almost ruined my career, but Maze came back into my life when I needed him most. He pulled me out of the depths of my despair. But could I save him now?

I travel through life fighting.

It had always been Ivy; from the first moment I saw her leaping through the air like she had wings to lift her from the ground. But she was my dream, something I wanted more than anything else in my life. I promised myself I would stay away from her. Violence followed me everywhere and I tried to keep her far away from it. She was my point of illumination in the dark tumultuous world I lived in. But I could not stay away from her. Not when I knew she needed me. As much as I needed her. But could she accept me as I am?

Whairigail's thoughts: **4.5 Intense, Raw, Passionate Hearts**

"Only that the beauty of the evening paled in comparison to the female that stole my attention, as she propelled her body through the air"

This is One of the Stunning opening lines to The Ballerina & The Fighter. Grace, elegance, passion, talent - all of which Ursula Sinclair writes with an abundance of.

I was torn over what rating to give this book, it was gripping and addictive but I felt I had to subtract 0.5 stars as I felt it was too short and I wanted more - so much more.

Anyway - negative out of the way, let me proceed with the gushing - sorry, review - of this wonderful piece of writing.

This book is written from 2 points of view - one being our lead male, Maze and the other being our lead female Ivy.

Ivy is a Ballerina - a graceful individual with talen pouring from her. She is beautiful and Maze is instantly drawn to her.

Maze is our Mixed Martial Arts Fighter. Strong, Powerful, Precise, Clever. Oh Maze is up there with the Yummy BookBoyfriends of the world. He actually makes me swoon!

Ivy & Maze have an incredible connection - sparks fly between them and the passion is positively dripping off the pages. they spend a very short time together and following a heartbreaking event, they are forced apart - to opposite ends of the world.

Fast Forward 5 years and their story continues.

To keep my review spoiler free - I'm going to stop here. All I'll say is - READ THIS. It is only 144 pages long, and as it is beyond addictive, you will finish it in no time.

Bring on the Sequel Ursula...We need Maze in our lives...
