Dancing with Black by Laura Gingham

Book Synopsis:
Dancing is Cami's escape from her dark home life. It's the only thing that gives her hope - until she meets Adam Black. A talented dancer in his own right, he asks Cami to be his partner, and she gains strength and confidence as he unlocks whole new possibilities for her.
When Cami's abusive mother overdoses and her already-broken family falls to pieces around her, dancing with Adam helps Cami pull through. But he has secrets of his own, and someone wants him found at any price. Cami gets dragged into a web of danger and deceit. Now she must make a choice between familiar darkness and uncertain light.

Author Bio:
Nearly a native of Idaho, I was born in Iowa and moved to Idaho at age four. I graduated from Ricks College with an Associates degree and from Boise State University with a Bachelor degree in Biology as well as certification to teach all science subjects in secondary education in the state of Idaho. Alvor is my first novel and was released May, 2009 and more books are on their way.

Since the release of Alvor, I have had the privilege of meeting so many great people, young and old alike. They have given me hope of breaking into the world with my book and making a career out of writing. One thing I can promise is that you haven't seen the last of me yet. Alvor is just the beginning of my journey.

My Review:
It took awhile to connect with Cami, she seemed to be outside of herself, just making it one day at a time.  It was strange.  Then when I realized she was being abused, it made a lot more sense!  I liked Adam, but did he have to be soooo different?  It just seemed to add an aspect that wasn't needed.  I think there's plenty going on in her life without adding it.  I loved her with Adam and how Adam treated her.  I especially liked her sister and their bond.  I really just felt like Cami's life was very hard, but appreciated the break that being with Adam and dancing gave her.
Content wise: one h-word and several d-words, thanks to the name of a Broadway Musical, no sex, just kissing.
Disclosure:  I was provided this book free of charge in order to express my honest opinion.  I didn't get paid!
