DEBUT Hayley Burke loves and lives to dance, and when she sees a grumpy man watching her, she tries to get him to let loose and join her. What she didn’t expect to see was him pulling out a walker from behind his seat and snapping at her about how not everything is sunshine and rainbows. She is mortified. Nick Freeman knows he and Hayley got off to a rough start that night, and he’s intent on apologizing and charming his way back into her good graces, especially since she’s now bartending at his favorite karaoke spot. The closer the two become, the more they begin to find their own rhythm in each other’s lives. Dutton’s novel features a heroine who moves with grace and a hero who doesn’t believe he can do anything smoothly. The author uses his own experience with cerebral palsy to give Nick’s disability the care, attention, and detail that it deserves.
VERDICT Dutton’s debut is a charming novel that will keep readers glued to the page.
