Pas De Deux is a women’s fiction/romance novel by Jordan Bates. It features a woman named Anya who dedicates her life to ballet. She never thought anything would distract her from ballet until she meets Lawson Kane, the hunky NASCAR driver. Once they meet they hit it off immediately and they fall in love with each other very quickly. They both feel their connection and chemistry is rare and do not want to let go of each other. Their relationship seems too good to be true, and Anya feels she has found her happily ever after. That is until an unexpected twist of fate hits and changes Anya’s life forever. Through a painful and unexpected tragedy, Anya ends up understanding that no matter how much you plan your life, things will never go exactly the way you want them to.
Pas De Deux is a novel that will make you feel many types of emotions all in one dramatic swoop. Anya, the protagonist, knows what she wants and Lawson is enchanted by her. I came to love both characters and rooted for them as soon as they started interacting. My favorite part of this story, and what I believe makes it stand out, is its roller-coaster ending. Make sure the tissues are handy when you reach the end of the book! The ending will make you contemplate your feelings for a long time. Jordan Bates’ writing is simple and straightforward, which complements the romance of the story. The pacing is quick and it will be easy to finish the book in one sitting. Anya’s point of view is a great one to have as it is a good way to gain insight into the character. I suggest this book to anyone who is looking for a well-crafted, soulful and sweet romance novel. This novel teaches you that your life can change at any moment, so you should appreciate it as much as you possibly can right now.
