Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars


New lovers Rhys Matherton and Silas Quint finally have a chance to breath easy and enjoy a well-earned respite on board a transatlantic cruise to New York City. But the lack of danger gives Rhys too much time to think about the enormity of falling in love with a man who isn’t human. He’s not sure love at first sight can last, especially when your lover is fae. Sure, the sex is fantastic, but that’s not enough to hang the rest of your potentially immortal life upon.

To distract himself, Rhys suggests he and Silas take a set of lessons to learn to waltz. The plan backfires when they are paired with two older women—one of whom reminds Rhys of his recently deceased mother. Instead of being able to ignore thinking about his future with Silas, he’s actively questioned about his lover. And it seems the whole boat knows who he’s sleeping with.

As Rhys learns the steps of the waltz, he has to decide if he’ll continue to dance around what he feels for Silas or if he’ll finally learn to trust in his partner’s love for him.

PizzyGirl’s View:

Slow Waltz is a sexy interlude that takes place between the action of book 1 and the real world that awaits the men when they depart the ship. Silas and Rhys are still very much in lust and have more freedom to enjoy their time together than they did before. And they take advantage of that, repeatedly, with great vigor and intensity. Man, they are HOT together. Next time I am in an elevator, I will remember this story and smile.

In addition to the hot encounters between the two men, the sweet romance is still present. But this time, it did not feel out of place. It is a perfect compliment to the dancing. I also love Debbie and Faith and may have teared up a bit at their dance.

But not all is perfect. Rhys is worried about the future and contemplating how to go forward. Is this a setup for another book for with these men? I hope so! I also hope to see more of Vasil from book 1.

Note: While you do not need to have read the first one to appreciate this one, I recommend you pick up Close Quarter and give it a shot. I enjoyed it and think you will too.
