The Ballerina & the Fighter (Ballerina #1) by Ursula Sinclair



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?


It has been awhile since I blogged about my love errr addiction to fighter romance novels.  I am making a mad dash to 200 books this year.  The easiest way for me to get to that bucket list goal is read fighter romance books.  I figure someday I will be sick of them, but today is not that day.

This book was a fun and very short read, only about 141 pages.  I liked this book because well Ivy the main heroine in the novel was well passionate about dancing.  Sometimes in fighter romance books, the girl doesn’t have any passion except for the love that she feels for the main dude.

Not so much the case.   If you are a lover of fighter romance as I am, you know the drill… insta love, damaged man… well this wasn’t really the case here.  They both had tragedy and found ways to fill the void caused by the tragedy.  This was a fun read and I enjoyed every moment.

I liked Maze he isn’t my favorite main male but he isn’t my least favorite either (ahem Christian Grey 😉 ) This is the first book I have read by Sinclair and I can certainly say I will continue to read her.  She is very talented in writing passion.

Oh and the steam factor??? Well it was certainly hot.   Maze wasn’t overly alpha which was also great.

Overall this is a great fast read and you will not be disappointed if you need a little steam on a raining afternoon 🙂
