Review: Two To Tango by Mimi Strong


Title: Two To Tango
Series: No.
Author: Mimi Strong
Release Date: 10th January, 2014
Rating: 2. 5 stars
Cliffhanger: No. 

From the USA Today bestselling author of the Peaches Monroe series and Borrowed Billionaire, comes a hilarious new story of unstoppable passion.

Skye Evans is a former stripper, trying to live a "good" life teaching dance to kids. She also hates rich people. Really hates them.

Charlie Ward is rich. He's twenty-nine, and caught between partying and growing up enough to have a relationship with someone besides his best friend.

When Charlie finds Skye crashing a party at the exclusive country club he owns, he's captivated by her long, beautiful dancer's legs. He takes her on a private tour of the pool, where they discover perfect chemistry.

Unfortunately for these two lonely lovers, Skye still hates rich people, and Charlie's still rich.

Charlie and Skye fit together so well when they're naked, but they must find creative ways to get over their differences and let themselves love

While Two To Tango holds a definite spark that made me go on, I wasn’t swept of my feet nor did I feel pleased with the story. I guess, for the most part, I could close my eyes and forget about few issues I had, but there were way to many times that made me shake my head and almost laugh at how hysterical and over the top some scenes where.

There was so many conflicting things and drama, that I can only described them by a single sigh and shrugged shoulders. That’s how I feel about this story. It wasn’t memorable enough to sing praises about it nor was it so horrible I want to rant.

Skye is former stripper and tries to get right on the track. She wants to leave her ugly past behind and work like any other ‘honest’ person. Now, as a dance teacher in community center, Skye has a minimum pay and barely makes the end meet. She hates rich people. She thinks they are assholes and nothing more.

Charlie is rich, or well it is his father that has the real money. When he meets Skye he cannot stop thinking about her.

I ended up not really feeling a connection between the two main characters Skye and Charlie, and when they ‘fell in love’ there was no awww moments for me or even a slight giddiness I always feel when characters finally get together. I wasn't interested in Skye and Charlie together….

The eroticism of the story was on a good level, though I expected more. I felt as I have read the same sex scenes all over and over again. Charlie didn’t make me hot and bothered, and his constant want to fix problems as everything in life has to be solved was very frustrating. For a twenty nine year old man, he didn’t act his age, especially near his father.

Two To Tango was not bad novel, I don’t hate it or have many negative feelings toward it , I just wasn’t captivated enough to say something remotely nice about it. Mimi Strong wrote a book that didn’t quite have the pull to made me love it, of course other readers can like it very much. It just wasn't for me.
