I travel through life dancing.

All I ever wanted to do was dance, as did my best friend. We'd made so many plans together, but one night an explosion changed it all. Only one of us survived, and I promised myself I'd succeed for us both. And I did, until an accident almost ruined my career, but Maze came back into my life when I needed him most. He pulled me out of the depths of my despair. But could I save him now?

I travel through life fighting.

It had always been Ivy; from the first moment I saw her leaping through the air like she had wings to lift her from the ground. But she was my dream, something I wanted more than anything else in my life. I promised myself I would stay away from her. Violence followed me everywhere and I tried to keep her far away from it. She was my point of illumination in the dark tumultuous world I lived in. But I could not stay away from her. Not when I knew she needed me. As much as I needed her. But could she accept me as I am?

Ursula Sinclair’s novel is sensual story about two very different people that are trying to find a way to be together.

"You’re perfect to me. Don’t go"

Ivy and Maze meet for the first time when they’re teenagers on the beach. They instantly attracted to each other and start to feel things they never really thought are possible. Unfortunately after few weeks together they lose contact and start to life with regret of not giving each other a proper chance.

Ivy is ballerina. She’s beautiful young woman, who’s like feather. Light, slim, full of grace and elegance. She makes ballet the most spectacular dance ever. She breathes dance and create art by her movements.

Maze is fighter. He’s strong, possessive as well as protective. He practices martial arts from the childhood and he’s very good at kicking ass.

Ivy and Maze are opposites to each other. She’s light and graceful to his strong and caring. They’re like magnets. Even five years after their fling they’re still thinking about each other.

The Ballerina and The Fighter is enjoyable romance. Being entirely honest I have to confess I have mixed feelings about this book. It’s not bad read and I’m quite sure lots of people will love it, but it wasn’t exactly what I needed.

There are things I enjoyed immensely. Especially the author’s love of ballet. You can see and feel it only by reading Sinclair’s descriptions. I have never danced, I’m too tall and clumsy for that, but I really want to try it, because of this book. Another thing I adored is relationship between Maze and Ivy, I’m glad I could read alternative point of views. And the sex scenes are sizzling.

I didn’t like that some things are rushed, I just couldn’t connect with the rest of the story. Some characters need pimping.

Overall, 3.75 star for creativity, well written relationship and steamy factor.
