Review of “To Dance Again” – Hebby Roman

 

They say a woman never forgets her first love, and Maricel Cardona hasn’t forgotten Ramón Morales. She remembers dancing all night in Ramón’s arms to the sensual beat of their homeland, Puerto Rico. When her family forced her to move to the States, she didn’t know she was carrying Ramón’s child.

A self-made multi-millionaire, Ramón hasn’t forgotten Maricel and the passion he felt, dancing with her. Now, at the pinnacle of his success, he’s withdrawn from the world to safeguard his own secret. A secret that, if revealed, would change his life forever.

Reunited after twenty-seven years, will the high school sweethearts get a second chance at love or will their secrets tear them apart?

 
 
(review request submitted by the author for an honest critique) 
 
Lovers reunited after so many years apart should spell a true, over the top, romantic read. 


You know the type. The thin books you caught your mom or grandma reading. Pages turned so much the book looks older than it should and several pages have creases from being dog-eared. 
 
This could’ve been one of those stories if it weren’t for the fact I didn’t feel a true emotional connection between Maricel and Ramón. For me, I needed more than a brief glimpse to their past. 
 
I also didn’t like how late the revelation (you have a child) came about or the timing of it. It was as if the author couldn’t figure out when or how to divulge the info and just threw it out there. 
 
For me, this book felt disjointed. I’m sure others will love it. It does have its appeal: sweet union of father/daughter and a HEA. 


For me, I just found it lacking.

  3. Thank you for the compliment on my cover. I picked out the motif of dancers and then my publisher, The Wild Rose Press, filled in the background. TWRP does beautiful covers!!!
