As a demon, Gideon's job is pretty simple--torture the souls that pass through his realm. But after thousands of years, he's starting to get a bit burned out. After a few visits to a shrink, he's told to get a hobby. But what hobby could a demon possibly pick that's not only relaxing, but legal, too?
Ballroom dancing. Oh, yeah. And when he's paired with the beautiful and curvy Macy, he can't help the lustful images that bombard him. Thinking a few nights between the covers with her should be adequate to clear her from his system, he sets out to woo her.
But the more time he spends with his mocha-skinned vixen, the more he realizes a few days won't be nearly long enough.
The whole concept of a demon who secretly wants to take ballroom dancing lessons is hilarious. This book was a great read, and I had a lot of fun with the character interaction. Macy's a bit unsure of herself because she's a bit on the pudgy side, plus she brings some emotional baggage to the scene, mostly from bad past relationships. Gideon's spent thousands of years torturing the damned, but feels like there's something missing. When the two meet in dance class, the attraction is instantaneous and potent. I would have liked to see Gideon war with himself a bit more over his decisions and feelings, but overall it was a great story.
