Slave to the Rhythm is one of those stories that start of slow, innocent, sweet, when suddenly, big a bang that will shake you to your core, your whole is tipped upside down, destroyed, and you come eye to eye with pure evil. ItÔÇÖs a captivating story of sorrow, humiliation, survival, healing, and ultimately, love and acceptance.
IÔÇÖve gone into this book blind, not knowing what to expect of thisÔÇöand it was the best decision I could have made. Not knowing the twist, so many reviews give away, made it possible for me to experience the horror first hand with Ash. I was suspicious, worried, confused, humiliated, and helpless right alongside him. I was completely caught off guard more than once with where the story took me.
Ash Novak came to Las Vegas to follow his dream of dancing, only to end up in a nightmare or violence and abuse. He struggles to survive a web of danger, dance the only thing he could hold on to. HeÔÇÖs terrified until Laney. She saves him, sees him at this most darkest and humiliating hour, and still helps him.
While on the surface, Ash might be the one needing saving, on a deeper level, he saves Laney too. Having been forces to accept her bodyÔÇÖs limitations since she was young, she made peace with not being like everyone else. Yet, she wishes for someone to accept her for who she is, and she finds that in Ash.
This story is as much a dark romance, as it is a sweet contemporary love story. Ash and Laney donÔÇÖt make senseÔÇöthe dancer and the less able. Their love for one another defies the norm. ItÔÇÖs a beautiful loveÔÇöraw, honest, intense, and breathtaking. This is a book I highly recommend to anyone, and I cannot wait for the next one to come out.
