Product Description

Step up, Grant Farley…not your typical ballet student!

Football pro Grant Farley is nursing an injury and needs to get back into shape—fast. Ballet wouldn't be his first or even his last choice, but he's desperate. Enter tantalizingly prim teacher Jasmine Bell—one disapproving arch of her eyebrow and Grant knows he'll enjoy getting her tutu in a flutter!

But it's not only Grant's flexibility that Jasmine's pushing to the limit! He knows she feels the heat between them, so why won't she give in to it? Time to convince Jasmine that if she's brave enough to dance en pointe she can certainly handle a fling with him!

HASH(0x9ec492e8) out of 5 stars Reviewed by Desere Steenberg, South Africa July 6 2014

Imagine being a big time professional football star, sustaining an injury and then to bring yourself back in the game you need to take ballet lessons! Yeah, your over the top manly team members are for darn sure going to have a field day with that one, not to mention the stuff the paparazzi will come up with.

This is exactly what sex on legs football star Grant Farley has to endure, but worse than any girly jab any one can come up with or slush that the press can dream up, is the strong attraction he feels for his ballet instructor Miss Prim and Proper Jasmine.

Grant knows he shouldn't tease her but it's just so much fun he can't help himself, and in the process he will get this lessons to get flexible again over and done with, so it should all work out okay. That is if he can manage to not let the teasing go any further than the classroom, that's the plan anyway, but who knows maybe a fling is just what he needs to bring his full head on A-game again.

Jasmine has enough issues of her own to deal with , she's in this lesson thing for the money it's as simple as that, or at least that's what she tells herself. The flaming hot attraction towards Grant can be filed away with a little discipline and dedication, right? Discipline and dedication is what dancers do best, but that only works when it's related to dancing and other areas in life and soon Jasmine and Grant find themselves trapped in a world of secrets being revealed, an explosive passion and a life changing decision that will either bring them together or shatter both their hearts.

I really, really, really loved this book! It was fun and sexy, humorous and had so much fantastic flair that it blended into a perfect romantic escape that I did not want to see end. I wanted to remain in this author's world that was simply magical and blew my mind!

Both main characters were written very well and so very realistic. They both have injury related issues but of course both have to find their own way of dealing with it and the impact if has on their careers. Seeing how the author let them be completely different but the same on so many levels was really awesome.

I very much enjoyed the level of turmoil and anguish they both have to run through to try and get over the hard blows life has dealt them. And yes I will be the first to say it sounds weird that I enjoyed anguish and turmoil because anyone who knows me knows I want everyone to be happy , but when I say I enjoyed the anguish and turmoil I mean that the author tugged at my heartstrings so badly it not only had me in tears but most importantly reminded me that every single one of us has different ways of dealing with pain. The author brought the reality of it all into play with such vivid detail it completely overwhelmed me, major tissue alert!

I loved all the ballet and football terms, I am not a big fan of either but I very much enjoyed learning about both through the eyes of the author and her characters. Some books that relate a lot of information to the characters careers do so only halfway and I feel lost and irritated and most of the time I need to go and give old Google a good search to try and understand what the author is saying, not the case in this read. The author 's very detailed descriptions put me front and center with all the information I needed to create the scenes and get them playing out in my mind.

I felt the heartache and disappointment of both characters, I felt the adrenalin rush as they push themselves to reach the top and I felt each and every moment of joy as they journeyed to the perfect ending. I will say that the book starts out just a little slow, but this tied in with the realistic part of it all, most reads of this nature has the couple meeting , dancing around each other and by chapter three they jump into bed together. In real life it does sometimes work that way but for the most part people do actually take the time to wait and get to know each other first. So the little slow buildup in this read is totally worth it, because when it hits that explosive moment you just know that this is the way real love is meant to play out.

Through the character of Grant and his up and leave 'em past I learned that it is always good to pursue our dreams but leaving behind our loved ones it never meant to be apart of the deal. Yes, our loved ones are not always going to support us in what we do, but always remember to be the better person and try and make them understand why you are following the dream., but never let your dream overshadow the love you know will always be there from the ones that mean the world.

Through the character of Jasmine I learned that life has all kinds of terrible twists and turns but it's just the way it is. When it seems too much, running away from it , will only let you end up with regret at never taking a chance, give it your all and push away the insecurities and fears and push forward and go with the flow.

I highly recommend this read for all fans of romance reads. The read had loads of crazy sexy fun mixed with a good dose of old fashioned realistic emotion. Stefanie London brought her own very unique style-anality to this read and I will be eagerly awaiting her next book. Passionate, sexy as all heck and the perfect read to let you know life has pitfalls but there is always a way to get back up. Watch out world Stefanie London has arrived !!

Liked it. Hot football player and a ex-ballet dancer. Jasmine helps Grant loosen his hamstring while trying to fight the attraction that is happening between the two of them. Both are feisty in their own way toward each other.

A dancer and a footballer. Both injured and in need of something. For Grant, it's some physical therapy for his hamstring to keep him playing, and someone to give him a push back towards the family he has become estranged from. For Jasmine, it's someone who believes in her more than she believes in herself. They've both had bad relationships that ended very negatively. Can they help each other through the haze of life?

There were some sexual situations but not too graphic.

HASH(0x9ec49b34) out of 5 stars What's not to love? Feb. 3 2015
By ReadingMad100 - Published on Amazon.com

What’s not to love?

- Cover shot: Hot!
- Title: Cheeky.
- Setting: Melbourne, Australia.
- Australian passions: Australian Rules Football vs The Australian Ballet.
- Protagonists: An intelligent, compassionate, masculine, redemption seeking hot AFL player vs a smart, sassy, beautiful, ballet swan with a broken wing (so to speak).

Whew!

Forced to undertake ballet exercises to strengthen his leg following a sports injury, football star Grant Farley meets Jasmine Bell, ballet teacher. And the sparks fly!

What a well-written book. This romance ticks every box I require to be a satisfied reader.

The chemistry between Grant and Jasmine is undeniable and their attempts at resisting one another is a joy to experience, because when they come together, it is explosive in a good way. Just a kiss had me melting.

The characters are completely likable. The emotional rollercoaster created by the characters’ inner turmoil is a great ride and aids the inflaming of the sexual tension. Accordingly, when sexy times happen, it is HOT and the timing feels right.

The pace of the story is natural taking place over the course of winter and concludes at the end of the first month of spring. This is a realistic time frame if you want to be convinced there is a basis for a happy ever after.

I got a small taste of being in Melbourne, the AFL and the ballerina’s world. I would have liked more on the AFL training regime, the game, and the game’s rules. But I got enough to be satisfied with the setting and more importantly, the romance. Sigh… it was excellent.

The mixing of some Australian-isms and American-isms was distracting: For example, the words ‘jumper’ and ‘sweater’ are both used. Australians don’t say ‘sweater’. And ‘pavement’ instead of ‘footpath’ is used. And there are more instances in the book. However, these are minor matters in an overall excellent book, in my opinion.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this novel.

I highly recommend it.

* contains sex scenes.

HASH(0x9ec49b4c) out of 5 stars Fans of Jill Shalvis and Sarah Morgan will love this! Nov. 25 2014
By Julie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Sexy, sassy and sparkling, Only the Brave Try Ballet is a fabulous debut novel from talented Australian author Stefanie London.

Dance teacher Jasmine Bell is more used to teaching little girls in bright pink tutus than strapping football players with shoulders to die for and a killer physique. But when Grant Farley saunters through her dance studio nursing an injury and in desperate need to get back into shape, Jasmine finds herself with a huge challenge on her hands. Grant’s raw masculinity and intense sexuality have awakened long-buried feelings deep within her which she’d thought dead and forgotten about. The gorgeous football player may have gotten under her skin, but the prim dance teacher is determined to keep things strictly professional between them. However, Jasmine hadn’t counted on Grant’s dogged determination to get physical with her…

Grant Farley might be Australia’s favourite bad boy football player, but behind the laid-back charm and devil may care attitude lies a man who has spent most of his life battling his demons and struggling to prove his worth. Grant’s passion for football had compelled him to turn his back on his family and fight with every fiber of his being to make it as a professional athlete. Although Grant now has the money, fame and accolades he has always dreamed about, happiness always seems to be out of his reach. With the tabloids constantly digging up dirt about him and his career in doubt, getting injured was the last thing he needed. Grant needs to be fighting fit and back on the football field as soon as possible. He simply cannot afford distraction of any kind nor does he need anything – or anyone – to deter him from his achieving his goals. But Grant cannot quite seem to get his new dance teacher out of his mind!

Relationships are simply not on the agenda for Jasmine. Having had her heart broken once before, Jasmine wants to dedicate all of her time and energy to her craft and her school. While she cannot deny that she is attracted to the dangerously handsome Grant, she knows that a relationship with him will only lead to heartache. But the more
time she spends with him, the more she finds herself falling head over heels in love with Grant!

Will Grant and Jasmine manage to vanquish the demons that are keeping them from grasping this last chance at happiness with both hands? Or will they continue to be held hostage by their pasts?

Only the Brave Try Ballet is a terrific debut novel that I found difficult to put down! Fun, flirty and emotional, this feel-good contemporary romance will delight fans of Jill Shalvis and Sarah Morgan with its captivating blend of witty repartee, steamy love scenes, powerful emotional conflict and poignant romance. Stefanie London effortlessly juggles pathos and drama with red-hot banter and sizzling sensuality guaranteed to hold readers spellbound from start to finish!

Grant and Jasmine are wonderful characters. Flawed, compelling and beautifully realised, Jasmine is a heroine we can all relate to and Grant is a delicious hero no reader will be able to resist!

An outstanding category romance from a writer with a bright future ahead of her, Only the Brave Try Ballet has me awaiting with baited breath the next release by this gifted Australian writer!
