Review  – Ten Year Dance by Ara Grigorian 

6 out of 5 stars

 I was approached by someone to see if I’d be interested in reviewing a book from an unfamiliar author. Me being me,  said absolutely. I love meeting new authors and discovering so many different styles of writing.   I am so glad it’s over said yes. 
This book was so well written and perfectly executed. Your heart will run the gamut of emotions. One minute it’s sadness,  then happiness, then you want to slap the characters in the head and tell them to get it together already. It was the perfect slow burn and so uniquely different than the majority of the books I normally review.  
I will absolutely be on the lookout for anything new coming from this author,  and definitely will be going back to read previous books. This book is definitely deserving of 6 stars. 

 Best friends since sixth grade. A ten-year high school reunion. A truth they’ve danced around for a decade.

Unlucky-in-love Sophie Perez knows her divorce won’t be easy—but she doesn’t expect it to be dangerous. So when things get ugly, she agrees to move in with Pete Nicos, her commitment-phobic best friend since childhood. Pete has always been there for Sophie, just like she’s been there for him. At first, taking her in seems like the best option, but soon her tantalizing proximity blurs the lines of friendship. With their high school reunion on the horizon will they find closure, forgiveness, and new beginnings?

Ten Year Dance is a contemporary love story, rich with engaging and relatable characters trying to find themselves and each other. Ara Grigorian’s latest will stay with you long after you turn the final page.

“Ten Year Dance is a captivating story of second chances that pulls you in from the first page…and doesn’t let go until the very end.” ~Diana Gardin, critically-acclaimed author of Rescue Ops and Battle Scar series

“Ara Grigorian does it again! Ten Year Dance is a delightful and engaging romance about two best friends who may or may not realize they are soulmates. Like When Harry Met Sally, you will root for Pete and Sophie to find each other before it’s too late!” ~Janis Thomas, critically-acclaimed author

“Grigorian’s style is easy-going and intimate, with a deft touch for emotion and character interaction. … Both marriage-phobic Pete and soon-to-be-divorced Sophie’s separate yet intertwined emotional journeys are skillfully depicted over the course of the novel, with the resolution coming as a worthy payoff for readers.” ~Publisher’s Weekly BookLife
