Do you remember your high school romance? Did you make plans to continue into college? Did both of you choose a college together so you could remain a couple? Or did you end up going your own ways?
I had begged my parents to go to the same college as my boyfriend but they refused. They seemed to think that I wouldn't be interested in education while we were on the same campus. Since I wasn't allowed to go to his school, I ended up staying home and going to community college. I still had problems with wanting to go to class. In fact, I was sometimes driving the four hours to see my boyfriend and then back.
I love that author Connie L. Smith deals with this issue in her book WALTZIN' BLIND. This book brings back all the feels to me. I remember those sweet times with my first boyfriend. In WALTZIN' BLIND, Lila and Austin are the cute couple who both have big futures. His is in football and her's in dance. But secrets and problems send cracks through their romance.
WALTZIN' BLIND releases on Nov. 15 in paperback and ebook. You'll want to devour this book while you listen to your favorite high school music. While WALTZIN' BLIND is the follow up to Jivin' Tango. It's great to see how Lila and Austin grow and mature! Be sure to preorder so you don't miss out!
Dancing in the storm is one thing. Waltzing in a secret one? Way harder.
Five months have passed since Lila and her dancer partner, Trent, placed third in the annual dance competition. That’s also when she fell, hard and fast, for her childhood friend, Austin. The dance competition was a dream come true. Austin was the surprise of a lifetime and proof that unknown things can be good—blissful, even, like a perfectly choreographed waltz under a moonlit sky.
But lately, the unknown things are piling up. Her friend, Jacey, is keeping secrets, her parents are acting odd, and Austin is most definitely hiding something from her—something big. And is she losing her mind, or is she suddenly being watched?
Her world no long feels like a graceful waltz, but a mosh pit of dancing elephants she has to ignore if she wants to keep her sanity, even if it means closing her eyes to everything around her. After all, it’s her tried-and-true method of coping, and she’ll cling to it for dear life.
Lila’s waltzing blind through an obstacle course of secrets. One misstep, and she’ll break under the weight of all the lies and deceit, and the carnage won’t be pretty.
The thing about a waltz? One misstep is easy to spot and hard to ignore, let alone two, three, four…
Don’t Miss the Exciting Sequel to Jivin’ Tango, the beginning of Trent and Lila’s love story. Praise for Jivin’ Tango- “This book involves several lessons many women need to learn. It's also a well written love story. The characters are relate-able and fun. Ms. Smith gives us a front row seat to events pretty common in the high school world.” -Book Reviewer
