    1. Lovely story. Perfect for inbetween or when you're (like I am right now) trying to get around being an adult. xD It was the perfect escape for 1+ hour. ;)

    2. 3.5 starsPate is a dancer who suffered from serious knee injury. Now he's back to his hometown in Atlanta to follow his Plan B: opening a dance studio. Ace Samson is a gorgeous contractor who follows up Pate's request for renovation projectOne thing I LOVED from Pate was how grounded to reality he was. Knowing that his injury was serious this time, in which he had to follow regiment of physio and couldn't exactly do a lot of strenuous dance again, he thought of Plan B, which allowed him to still [...]

    3. Pate was a successful dancer who suffered a career-changing knee injury. Because he is a smart man, he had a backup already thought out. So he’s returned back home to Atlanta to open his own dance studio. He may not be able to dance six days a week anymore but he can teach new students to be stars. I liked that Pate realizes he loves dance but is firmly grounded in reality. That reality includes the renovation of the building for his dance studio. He has an awesome friend in Billy, “And I th [...]

    4. After he injured his knee, Pate knew that his dancing career was over–at least one centered on the stage. Moving back to his hometown, Pate decides to put his Plan B into action by opening and running his own dance studio. Once he gets the studio built, anyways. That is where Ace comes in. Pate is equally attracted to Ace’s looks as he is attracted to the bid he puts on the remodel of the studio space that Pate has bought. Keeping his hands off the man may be nigh on impossible, but Pate sur [...]

    5. This was a really light and sweet read from a new to me author.Novella’s are tough read for me though tough isn’t a bad thing. I know it’s a good story when I want more from it and I definitely wanted from from Pate and Ace, so the tough thing was only the number of pages.Told from the POV of one injured dancer named Pate, we meet him as he is touring the new space that will be a dance academy where he can not only teach but continue to dance in a way after his injury. When Pate meets the [...]

    6. Reviewed for Just Love: Romance blogI received an advance review copy in exchange for a fair and honest reviewNBUN ALERT!If those two words aren’t quite enough to convince you to pick up this novella, I should probably add that said manbun is attached to a hunky contractor named Ace who has a big truck and undoubtedly big… boots.Manbun aside, I found Rhythm & Blues to be a short and sweet read with two hotties as the main characters.It’s pretty common in novellas for the MCs to get hot [...]

    7. 4.5 stars. This was such a sweet romance with a few hot smexy scenes thrown in. Since Pate can’t professionally dance anymore, he moves to teaching dance. With that in mind, he needs to build his studio and what is second best than a hot-as-sin contractor to build it. These two definitely had the insta-physical attraction and were trying hard to not indulge in their wanting, but yet try to get to know each other. Of course, the intense chemistry between wins over and they indulge. It isn’t u [...]

    8. A sweet but short novella about a former professional dancer opening a dance studio and falling for the contractor whom he hires to do the work. Not much in the way of conflict here, beyond our main character coming to accept his new life. But well written with appealing characters.

    9. Enjoyed it. Fairly pacy well written short story.Pate is having to reassess his life after a career ending injury - but is being torn between his old life and the new one back home in Atlanta. The story is all about whether his new dance studio and his construction guy Ace have enough pull over the lights and fame of Broadway!

    10. Reality in the form of a serious injury has sidelined Pate and taken him from the world of dance. While he may never have the grace and skill that made him stand out in the crowd, he will be able to dance well enough to open his own studio and perhaps one day rejoin the stage in a limited way. The last thing he is looking for during his last two months of therapy, while he has his studio renovated from the ground up, is any kind of emotional entanglement. That resolve flies out the window when o [...]

    11. ARC provided by the publisher through Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words in exchange for an impartial review. Pate Hawkins wanted to be a dancer from the moment he stepped into a dance studio at age ten, and he’s among the few who achieved his dream of being well-known to Broadway audiences. But he’s returned to Atlanta, his hometown, pursuing his backup dream—to open a dance studio where he can inspire young talents to go for their dreams. A severe knee injury ended his career on Broadway [...]

    12. A Joyfully Jay review. 4.5 starsSweeping romance. Low angst. Man-buns. What more could you want? Shae Connor’s new short novella hits all the right notes. I was absorbed from the very first page, falling into this journey with Pate as he heals from his injury and embarks on a new life for himself.Pate is incredibly engaging, and I loved his attitude from the start. He knows himself well, and he lets us see just where his head is at. He is coping fairly well with his injury, several months into [...]

    13. This is a book in my opinion about losing your first love only to find your true love and that is exactly what happened with Pate.Pate's first live has always been dancing but he knew that would not last forever and he was right. A knee injury took him out of the dancing game so now he is opening his own studio to teach. During the process of finding a contractor to do the renovations he meets Ace. And his world is turned upside down.I think that Ace has always had a thing for Pate. He remembers [...]

    14. I was hooked from page one, specifically because of the funny sweetness between the two men. We only see Pate's point of view and that works well. I withhold the fifth star for lack of real conflict. There's a little, but it's pretty tame. Perfectly fine if that's the sort of read you're after! My only quibble is I got no real sense of Atlanta, even when Pate walks. Even New York's a little cursory. I've been to Atlanta. It's hot in summer and sometimes cold in winter and traffic can be hell.Goo [...]

    15. Sadly, too many lost opportunities in this story. The author has a nice style to her writing, but I was unable to form an attachment to the characters. Pate, as the narrator, more so, but Ace is still a mystery. For such a short novella, I found myself losing interest and finding other things to do rather than getting wrapped up in it. That cover is gorgeous though.
