Haylee Daniels has landed a role in a Broadway musical about a down on her luck dancer who’ll do anything for another chance at Broadway stardom. The only problem is, Haylee has never danced a day in her life.
Thankfully, she has Chase Nolton, her leading man, and Broadway’s premier choreographer, Carmine Romero to teach her all she needs to know. When Carmine suggests she dance nude in order to better understand a dancer’s body, Haylee fears she may be as desperate for Broadway stardom as her character.
This is a highly erotic short story about three people who find love and make it on Broadway.
This story was a nice quick read (60 pages). Although it has a foreseeable arc, it is a gratifying one none-the-less. Haylee, Chase, and Carmine are a strong trio that work well together. I will admit that when I read the opening scene where Carmine tells Haylee that in order to learn to dance she must be nude to “remove her barriers” I did roll my eyes and settled in for a whatever story, but after it got going I was pleasantly surprised. The last half to third of the story was much stronger than the beginning, it moved away from pointing out the obvious connection of Haylee’s own Broadway debut with that of the character she is playing (because we couldn’t see that on our own), to letting us actually feel that connection through Chase and Carmine’s vision of Haylee as she morphs into a genuine Broadway actress.
The love triangle wasn’t forced, it was very natural and made sense. I can see these three having a real relationship.
Beyond the threesomes there wasn’t a whole lot of “extras”, Carmine did lead Haylee and Chase through a little public display and there was some light spanking and handcuff use.
Overall a decent story that is worth a few moments of your time, and based on the last parts of the story I would read more from this author.
