I love long, descriptive stories and A Dance of Love and Jealousy fit that bill perfectly. During my college years I worked as an extra in a big opera and ballet company and Mr. Graeme managed to describe the atmosphere so well.

I love long, descriptive stories and A Dance of Love and Jealousy fit that bill perfectly. I also like characters that aren't perfect and the hot sex scenes were also very good.

this book is totally gorgeous Barthes takes phrases and feelings and analyzes them reminding us of the diction of love, and how it remains a structural piece

this book is totally gorgeous. once you move beyond its initial experimental structure and get into the groove of it, it is sensational. Barthes takes phrases and feelings and analyzes them reminding us of the diction of love, and how it remains a structural piece. This book is for anyone interested in structuralism without the dryness of academia, as well as anyone interested in the topic of love. The translation is quite good, and I definitely recommend this to those who want to read Barthes but cannot read French.

Nate Deventer is about to go from standing in the wings to dancing into his future. He's earned his way from a major ballet company's corps boy to a soloist, gained a mentor in one of the principals, clashed with handsome star Dane Stockton-who has a girlfriend in the company despite his wandering ways-and met his idol: famed dancer and new resident choreographer, Romuald Ghent. Romuald's first major project for the company is a new ballet, and Nate is cast as the understudy of one of the leads. It's an exciting opportunity, one that brings him closer to Romuald and fosters a burgeoning mutual attraction. But between them is Romuald's on-again, off-again relationship with guest star Henri Keller, and the success of the ballet may depend on how well Nate can dance between his professional and personal lives.
Reviews about A Dance of Love and Jealousy (7):
In my opinion this book is an example of how to write a story without making a reader think that she is reading "how to" manual. The book is about the life of ballet dancers and it has tons of little and not so little details about rehearsals, performances, their regimes, which do not burden the reader, but instead enrich the story. More specifically this book is about the journey of one ballet dancer Nate towards professional success and personal happiness, but it does not just concentrate on Nate, it shows us everyday life of other ballet dancers, his friends and colleagues. The reader can feel the passion those men and women feel when they dance. It is so good. Love story begins with the admiration Nate feels towards the famous dancer and choreographer and when he gets a chance to know him closer and work with him it eventually turns into love, not without some obstacles on its way. But the author manages what very few writers of this genre IMO managed to do; he portrays well rounded people, not just sex toys. Yes, these guys seem to take genuine pleasure in being with each other, but they are dancers (one is more choreographer than dancer, but you know what I mean) who fell in love, and not just characters whose main purpose is to show off their sex skills to the readers. I loved it, I loved that writer also showed Nate's friendship with some of his colleagues and genuine care and support they showed to each other, way too often the guys in these books exist in vacuum, but with amount of time they spend at work and away from their families, it does make sense that your colleagues become your second family if you let them and care for them.

one life
A detailed account of producing a ballet. Long on meaningless sexual escapades and short on developing a two person intimate relationship. Nate Devanter is fortunate to be given a small, solo role in a production choreographed by Romuald Ghent who he idolizes. An interesting mix of characters, some straight and some gay, including Joshua Pearsal, a born-again Christian. Excellent story about dancing. But there is very little romance.
The world of ballet has always fascinated me so I was excited when I came across this title. Graeme thoroughly delved past the shallow preconceptions without losing much of the magic that ballet invokes. For all the detailed exploration of ballet, music and such I still felt like something was missing though. I can't really figure what exactly since the characters were varied and interesting and even compelling but I still didn't feel immersed or that invested in their relationships and the final declaration of love was so anticlimactic and banal that I cringed. For all Graeme's missteps (some naughty sex talk that didn't seem to match the people and chemistry between Dane and Nate) this book was still entertaining and worth the purchase.
This book is very well written with engaging characters. I have minimal knowledge about the world of ballet and this isn't even my typical reading genre. Even though I kept subconsciously expecting a plot twist or murder mystery I was hooked and read the book straight through. As an important aside, this book has a lot of sex scenes which don't bother me here but the reader should be made aware.

As an update, I did read several other books from this author and was sorely disappointed. They all start with a lot of potential but then degenerate into completely unrealistic over-the-top porn that adds no depth to the story or to the characters and serves to make the plot crumble or disappear. That might be what another reader is looking for but if I want to read porn then I don't need to pretend there is a real story in there somewhere. It's a shame because otherwise the author seems to research his topics well and has a nice writing style.
I don't often write a review of a book I've read, but this book was so good I felt compelled to share. There is a lot going on in the story without a lot of angst. That might lead to a boring book, but this book had a great foundation and built on the lives of the main characters. We really learned about Nate and his work and co-workers/friends. The book was able to make you really root for the hero of the story and maintained your interest in the other characters.

I couldn't stop reading the book, even late into the night. I just had to know what was going to happen next. You weren't left with any questions when the book was over, but I found myself sad to see it end. I really wanted to stay with the lives of the characters and continue to see where life would lead them.
I wasn't sure at first that I was going to like this book, turns out I couldn't put it down once I started! The main characters as well as the supporting staff were well-developed. I could actually FEEL the the sexual tension from the description of the finale!! I was gasping for air myself along with the 'audience'!

I would definitely recommend this book! A very good read, very intense. Looking forward to more from this author!

Developed, mature and real characters, shown through interaction, not just by author saying he/she is like that.
Dialogue is prominent, and wonderfully done.
People are shown as gray (mostly light gray ;-)), not just black and white.
The most dark gray character is Henri, and it would be nice to see more of them, and give the gay a little happy ever after... Please?
