Dancers & Choreographers Making Love at 17th & K

Dancers & Choreographers Making Love at 17th & K

The Sacramento Ballet, performes Wild Sweet Love…an evening that includes 3 complete ballets dedicated to love in all of its complexities, on February 13 through the 16th at the Community Center Theater. (See times below),

Owing to the athleticism of Ron Cunningham’s company of dancers, love will be in the air…literally. Wild Sweet Love is where strength meets beauty, as performed by the Sacramento Ballet. Add a dash of sexy and pinch of spice and season to taste, as they say…and you have an entrancing concoction of love, in all its flavors.

This triple bill features Wild Sweet Love, Wunderland and an original piece by choreographer Ma Cong, formerly with the National Ballet of China.

This is the 2nd story of Anna, Sam, Nick, and Cas. They find out new information about the Branch. She is also having flash backs of Dani, and Nick.

She and the boys rescue some others along with Dani. More secrets come to light , and trust is broken along the way. Anna is still in love with Sam. She also she has a connection with Nick.

This book was a fast read, and full of action and romance. I don't know if there is going to be another book in the series. I hope to learn more about Riley and the Branch because I don't think that they are really gone.

Book Review= B

Thanks so much to little Brown and this is my Honest Review... Read More

Sloane Emily is the daughter of a senator , and also an ice skater. Her perfect family isn't as perfect as it seems.

Sloane Devon is a hockey player and her family life is shambles, and she has a lot of anger issues.

They ironically meet up at the same hotel with a luggage mix up . They both decide to swap lives for the summer. They both have a tough time learning their new sports , and they both find love, and come to grip with their issues within their families.

This book was cute , and a lot like Parent Trap. This book was light and fluffy, and their are issues being tackled. I loved both Sloane's changed for the better. I love the cover too. This book was also told in both of their point of views. I loved how this all took place in Montreal Canada.  This is the author's second book , and I will read anything by her.

Book Review= B+
