Selah’s one of the richest students at Haven Academy. Dante’s a charity case. They shouldn’t mix, but a ballroom dancing contest is about to pull them together…
Selah never asked to be rich and she never asked to be born into a family where tradition and appearance mean everything. Boarding at Haven Academy is a welcome relief, but it doesn’t get her out of having to compete at the annual ballroom dancing competition her parents host in their home town. And then she loses her dance partner…
Her parents will be furious and no doubt blame her for what’s happened. She’s freaking out over what to do when the last solution she ever thought possible appears in the form of Dante Arden.
Accused of being a perpetual smart-mouth with no hope of a decent future, Dante’s used to people’s skepticism, but he’ll do just about anything to help Selah fall in love with dancing.
He’s always been curious about the quiet, quirky bookworm and watching her come out of her shell is a thing of beauty. As one step turns into two, the duo challenge each other in ways they never expected. And with the competition drawing closer by the day, they’re ready to break all the rules if it means one more dance together…
I received a free copy from the author and voluntarily reviewed it.
Selah Loves Dante is the second book in the Misfits Remix series and after enjoying the first book I was eager to read the second one. Selah Loves Dante is another great read, I enjoyed reading about these characters and the romance was awesome. They were great together. I liked reading about the misfits and look forward to the next book already.
Selah and Dante were great to read about and I liked getting to know them both. It was fun how the dancing brought them together and how they slowly started to fall for one another. I liked the rich girl falls for poor boy theme and also how little that mattered when they really connect and get to know each other. They really bring out the best in each other and I loved seeing both of them grow during the story. Especially seeing Selah come into her own, from a timid girl who reads her book alone in the corner to voluntarily stepping in the spotlight and being surrounded by a group of people who accept her and welcome her as their friend.
Selah and Dante both have their struggles throughout the series and I thought that was handled well. The ending is awesome and really ends the book on a high note, while also giving a hint for the next book. While the focus is on Selah and Dante it’s also fun to see the other misfits, there’s more of Maverick and Londyn from the first book as well as the other misfits and characters we see more of.
To summarize: This was another great read in this series. I really enjoyed reading about Selah and Dante. Seeing them fall in love was awesome and I liked how they really bring out the best in each other. They both grow and change throughout the book and I liked seeing that, especially Selah’s change was awesome to see. The other misfits and side characters play a role as well and it’s fun to see more of them and there’s also a hint of next books couple. I am already looking forward to that one!
