Reviews Ballerina Dad

  • Barbara➰
    Cute holiday novella. A second chance story of high school friends. I think I would have rated it higher if it had been longer. It would have made a great full length book. So many things that could have been expanded on.

    This was a super-cute, short, aww-I-feel-like-I-got-a-hug story about a divorced bisexual professional hockey player dad (in a tutu) going to his daughter's ballet class for the parent-daughter dance and realizing the ballet teacher was the guy-that-got-away seventeen years ago.Almost entirely angst-free, it began at a solid clip and didn't slow down, and it delivered a lovely Christmas feel-good in a very short package.

    Aww...this is a cute short Christmas story with a daddy wearing ballet tutu and all the glitter, finding his first love and a second chance of love. Just one of my favorite plot.I liked how Amy Aislin portrayed the 'reality' of a sport celebrity man with all his complicated situation, not selfish and thought about his baby girl's feeling when it comes to his relationship with Ashley/Ash/Lee, a ballet instructor for his daughter. Also his first cr...

    4 Stars Lee and Patrick are two men who’ve always been drawn to each other since they first met in high school, but neither has ever been single at the same time, until now. It’s been a decade since they’ve seen each other, but when they meet again unexpectedly, they won’t let a chance to be together slip through their fingers once again.

    A Joyfully Jay review. 5 starsI. Loved. This! It was a short, terribly sweet, and to the point story about two men who’d been able to come together after 17 years. It made my heart happy and put me right into the Christmas spirit.Because it’s not a long story, there wasn’t really a lot of chance for character development, but it’s written well enough that I felt like I knew Patrick and Lee as soon as they appeared. Their chemistry is off ...

    When popular Toronto Maple Leafs hockey player Patrick Barnes shows up at his daughter’s ballet studio, ready to perform with her for Parent’s Day, the last person he expects to see is “the one that got away.” Especially while he’s wearing a tutu! Yet, there was Ashley—known to Jordan as Ash, her beloved ballet teacher—but always known to Pat as Lee. Pat and Lee were high school friends who, for various reasons, never became more at...

    This is such a sweet story! A 2nd chance, friends to lovers tale of a ballet instructor and a professional hockey player, who happens to have the cutest daughter ever! I loved the Christmas setting. It has no angst and isn't complicated, which is what I needed. I only wish it had been longer. There are so many areas it could have been more detailed but as a short story it is fabulous. I will definitely read more by this author. I received an ARC ...

    A pro hockey player in a tutu – just to make his four-and-a-half-year-old daughter happy on parents’ day at ballet class? Quite the hook to pull me into this story! As it turns out, Patrick doesn’t just have to attend, he is expected to dance with Jordan and get the whole thing on film! This is how he feels about it, and I have to admit it made me grin.Please find my full review on Rainbow Book Reviews.
