Tony DeLuca has to get to New York, nor’easter be damned. His older sister is getting married and it won’t matter to her if the entire east coast is shut down if it means she’s short a groomsman. She’s the only reason he’s willing to make the trip home to face a father who’s never forgiven him for wasting a perfectly good degree to become a firefighter. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to everything about Tony that his father will never accept.
Dominic Tricoli’s living his dream. He’s spent the past few years working to mesh his business degree and love of the outdoors into a thriving company, providing team building retreats for some of the country’s largest corporations. Unfortunately, there’s a price to pay for happiness, and having someone to come home to at night is the sacrifice Dominic made.
When Dominic overhears Tony’s plight, he’s drawn to help the man get to New York City. Little does Dominic know that one kind gesture will awaken a side of him he’s ignored for far too long. Against his better judgment, he gives in to his desires and Tony’s advances. Just for the night.
When destiny steps in, giving him another chance with the charismatic man who saved his hide, Tony’s willing to do whatever it takes to earn Dominic’s forgiveness and understanding. There may not be forever, but Tony’s determined to enjoy every single minute he’s given with Dominic.
You can’t fight fate. Whatever’s meant to happen, eventually will.
Advanced copy received from author for an honest review
M/m romance is my current book obsession. Can't get enough of it.
So when Ms Johnson offered an advanced copy of Dance With Destiny, there was no thinking about it. Let me at it!
Tony is that hunka hunka burnin' fireman that any woman (or man!) would want warming their bed.
Dom is the successful businessman, content with his lot in life, though events from the past weigh heavy on his mind - and heart.
When this duo have a chance meeting, they have no idea how much their lives are going to change.
They have that instant attraction/insta-lust thing going on strong. Both unsure of the other but keen to know more.
Boy, the sparks between this pair fly! When they find themselves thrown into the same social circles again, you just know that things are going to hot up.
Everyone around them can feel it too, but so much denial between them. Come on fellas, get your act together and get it on!!
Of course the road to true happiness is never a smoothe one, and boy oh boy do Tony and Dom have their work cut out for them!
Dance with Destiny is more than just a m/m romance. There are so many other things going on with them that makes their story so believable.
It is more a story of hurt, healing, acceptance. Ms Johnson deals with these issues in a compassionate and natural way, things don't feel forced and it draws you further into the story. Your heart just hurts along with our lovelies.
There is a complexity to the relationships of all the characters in Dance with Destiny. Nothing seems to come easy for our pair - mostly through their own distrust, miscommunications, lies and secrets. Nothing good can ever come from secrets.
One of the biggest things you will get out of this story is what is really family? Are those that are supposed to love you unconditionally the ones that always do? Or is family more than blood
So, can Tony and Dom get past all their issues and forge ahead in their relationship?
For that, you are going to have to read for yourself.
Ms Johnson has only just started to tip her toes into the m/m pool, but she is quickly becoming on of the authors I will always read.
Sloan Johnson is a big city girl trapped in a country girl’s body. While she longs for the hustle and bustle of New York City or Las Vegas, she hasn’t yet figured out how to sit on the deck with her morning coffee, watching the deer and wild turkeys in the fields while surrounded by concrete and glass.
When she was three, her parents received their first call from the principal asking them to pick her up from school. Apparently, if you aren’t enrolled, you can’t attend classes, even in Kindergarten. The next week, she was in preschool and started plotting her first story soon after.
Later in life, her parents needed to do something to help their socially awkward, uncoordinated child come out of her shell and figured there was no better place than a bar on Wednesday nights. It’s a good thing they did because this is where she found her love of reading and writing. Who needs socialization when you can sit alone in your bedroom with a good book?
Now, Sloan is a tattooed, purple haired mom of two kids, one of which was a thank you present to her husband for letting her get a Staffordshire Terrier with more anxiety issues than Sloan has, which is saying something. She’s been kicked out of the PTA in two school districts and is no longer asked to help with fundraisers because she’s been known to lose herself in a good book and forget that she has somewhere to be.
