Aug 15, Dina rated it liked it Recommended to Dina by: I’m not feeling inspired to write a review, so I’ll just sum up my biggest “problem” with this story: Not exactly the best basis for a relationship.
I’m sorry to say that I finished the book without truly believing that the heroine wasn’t using the hero as a “security blanket”. Which was a pity, because he was a wonderful guy and deserved better.

Amorous Liaisons (Harlequin Blaze, #) by Sarah Mayberry
Maddy deals with a lot of pain through her life with her career always coming first, finding herself again was her journey through the book. I liked Maddy but I felt she kept making Max her security blanket even when they got into a relationship, making the relationship feel somewhat unbalance. Lucky for us the readers this was fleshed out. Max Laurent dreamed of being a dancer and falling in love with his roommate Maddy Green.
But when his father falls ills, he gives it up in order to be there for his family. The years go by and his father is finally at peace, and Max is left with moving on, his outlit is his bronze statues.
One day Max returns to his apartment to see Maddy at his doorstep in need of help, and all the love he had for her is still burning bright as ever. Max holds back his feelings again as he sees Maddy is in need of him as a friend then a lover.
Although it gets tough when he need a nude model for his next showing and Maddy offers to help and when a kiss between them leads to some to sex Max is even more torn between helping Maddy and loving Maddy. Max was those yummy heroes, he was once a dancer and sexy as sin lover.
Beyond that he was a true friend, had a huge heart that took a lot of hits and was willing to let Maddy go back to the stage even when it would break his heart into a million pieces.

Nov 27, KarenH rated it it was amazing Shelves: I was a little skeptical at the beginning knowing the hero was an ex-ballet dancer, but that was my own naivety because Max turned out to be smokin’ hot!
The heroine is Maddy Devastated, Maddy turns to Max, an old roommate she had become close friends with 8 years before. As the story progresses, Maddy realizes her feelings for Max are moving beyond that of friendship; whereas Max’s feelings are simply stronger, as he has silently loved her for years.
The turning point for Maddy is when she spies Max “taking matters into hand” in the shower.

She stands transfixed as it is the most erotic thing she has ever seen. Later that night, when they are dancing at a techno club, Maddy is all over Max and they end up having sex up against a wall outside. That might sound cheesy to some but I found the scene quite believable. From what I hear, dancing to techno music is a major stimulant to the libido.
Unsure of each other’s feelings, they both try to play the incident down; however, that proves to be a problem as they are too attracted to each other AND amorpus under the same roof. I mayberr that Sarah Mayberry did an excellent job of portraying Maddy as a heartbroken woman She has a few meltdowns and setbacks, but nothing so mental that can’t be cured by the passage of time and the love of an awesome man.
And that awesome man I’ll try never saeah to judge a book by it’s cover, maybberry I now crave a hero with a Maayberry accent who wears tights! View all 4 comments. Aug 07, K. Of course, because it’s “Murphy’s Law,” it’s the one I should have listened to a long time ago. This story reads like a romantic [Audiobook: This sarwh reads like a romantic film in “feel,” if you left out the obvious difference of the sexually explicit content. Maddy Green has just been given the final axe to her dancing career when she is not unexpectedly let go from her dance company after sustaining a permanent injury.
Dance is all she’s ever known and without her dance identity she’s feeling vulnerable and suddenly directionless in her life.
Amorous Liaisons (Lust in Translation, book 6) by Sarah Mayberry
After a mental review of “What’s out there now?! Max, a former dancer himself who’d had his career cut short due to injury, is shocked to find Maddy suddenly resituated in his life once again.
He’s not certain how to take her reappearance, as, although he’s always been her friend, he’s always been in love with her and enduring her “surprise” re-emergence in his life could be more than he can take.
He’s just now feeling after years that he’s managed to tuck his emotions for Maddy deeply away in a “box”; and energetically inspired enough to pursue his career post-dance as a bronze sculpture artist. It’s all Max can take to tamp down his libido when he wakes with Maddy curled up to him. Maddy is fast and furiously re-tangling herself into his every day life while she works to mentally deal with where to go now with who she is and what to do minus the dance world.
When Max has his “live artist” cancel on him in the middle of his creative push to produce enough of his art for an expected “showing,” Maddy volunteers to stand in.
When unbeknownst to Max, Maddy also accidentally gets an eye-popping view of Max’s “cure” for his not to be ignored problem, she can’t get the sexy image of her longtime “friend” out of her head, which leads to her own revelations that have been locked away firmly in her heart.
These two mayherry through a quiet and subtle “dance” of their own while doing all they can to protect both their hearts from being broken by truly the best friend they’ve ever had — each other.
Gently and unselfishly toward each other, while telling themselves to suck it up and deal with the fact the other doesn’t think of them in “that” way. Always choosing the welfare of their “friend” over rocking the boat and perhaps spoiling the part of their relationship they are both sure of as well as willing to ALMOST settle for. Amorouw so enjoyed their journey to “play the hand they are liqisons with each other.
The story has fleshed out secondary characters Max’s concerned sister, and his relationship with her as well as his young autistic neice.
Mayberry keeps the main plotline – the love between Maddy and Max liaieons front and center and still fleshes out enough background “glue” to keep the story plausible and on track. If you can enjoy a mellow love story of discovery without the addition of two protagonists that have a need to “find their love” via constant bickering and one-upsmanship, this is a good one.
Feb 05, Nisha rated it liked it Shelves: I went into maybsrry expecting a lot. With such good reviews and an ex-ballet dancer hero, I was expecting something tremendous. Unfortunately, it was nothing like that. It was a woman, Maddy who has lost her meaning of life ballet and shacks up with her old roommate who is not gay, though he was a dancerMax.
Now, Max has always been in love with Maddy, even when they were living together and sleeping with each other without actually doing it I know, weird masochistic French people stuff, I gu I went into this expecting a lot.
