Waitress Abilene Harper has always been a bit on the shy and clumsy side.  So when the reality TV spoof Dancing With the Rednecks comes to Misty Creek, Kentucky, nothing could make Abby agree to participate...nothing except a fifty thousand dollar grand prize!  While she doesn’t relish being laughed at, it sure would be danged sweet to buy a truck with all the trimmings, fix up the diner for her hard-workin’ mama, and send her brother to the fancy college that he deserves.

Abby’s tall, dark and smokin’ hot dance instructor Rio Martin is mighty ticked when he finds out the ballroom dancing competition he signed on for is actually a joke. But Abby’s spunk and determination soon has him setting his sights on winning. He whips Abby into shape, and she begins to cha-cha and rumba her way into the heart of the TV audience, while chemistry between the unlikely couple sizzles. Rio tries to remain all business, but Abby has her eyes on the prize—and it isn’t just the money.

This is a quick read with many laughoutloud moments. Its easy to identify with the character Abby and her embarrassment in attemping to transform herself from class geek to dancing queen in front of her entire home town. Lots of fun! Read full review
