One of my favorite reads on SOL. It has just the right touch of romance, sex and excitement while developing a real plot that is believable to the reader.
This has other reviews. Of course it is a great story, 9.42 score, several Golden Clitorides. If you haven't read it, by all means do so. Its about ice dancing and romance.
I just want to offer two alternate titles.
One is Warren's Piece.
Dance of a Lifetime is a long story, War and Peace is a long story. The hero is Warren and his love interest is Sophia. She is his piece (of ass.)
The other alternate title is Sophia's Choice.
Of course Sophia chose Warren.
There was another book called Sophie's Choice, I am trying for a play on words here. Maybe, very trying.
The story is all tens. No need to agonize, ask anybody. Read and enjoy.
This is, by far, my favourite story of Don Lockwood.
It is a redemption story, it is a romance, it is a saga with a 'cast of thousands'... It is all of those things. But, when it comes right down to it, it is a fantastic novel.
I've read DoaL so many times, I can point to certain chapters that have pivots and that will definitely make the reader tear up.
If you like love and romance then set aside some time and read this story. Be prepared, though, for a huge cast of characters being mixed and jumbled around the two principals over a span of several years. It's to Frank's everlasting credit that the characters are each unique enough that the number of characters doesn't cause confusion.
There's plenty of good stroke material here, it's just spread out over so much story that you can almost forget that it's there. Great characters, plot and prose leave me treating this more like a favorite long novel - I'll probably reread it 5 times in the next few years just because it's so much more fun to read than most of what's out there. (For all of that this isn't even my favorite of Frank's stories. That honor goes to either "Samantha's Secret" or "The Ghosts of Christmas Past")
