Book Blurb

MAX
His past and present is consuming him too much for him to see her as his future.

When Jenna dances her way back to Max Owens’ life, her presence triggers memories of his secret past. Pressured by his new position as youth pastor of their church, Max isn’t ready for how Jenna’s vulnerability awakens in him a protectiveness he had only felt for one other person in his life–someone whose last words haunts his past, present, and future.

JENNA
She dances away all her heart break until she discovers healing in true love’s arms.

Max awakens in Jenna Marquez a yearning for a brand of romance she’s never had before. He coaxes her to return to her childhood home to look after her father, and somehow, makes her want love even if she can’t see herself falling for him. After all, someone like him will never go for someone as tainted as her.

Will they remain blind to their chemistry? Or will they let their hearts free fall—like she does with her aerial hoops—and still find themselves safe and deeply loved?

My review

The One Who  Danced Away by Joanna Alonso.
This is the third book I am reading by the author,Joanna Alonso. 

I love the three major characters, Max,Rachel and Jenna (Crazy Jenna). Each person made this book so interesting.


One thing that struck me while reading this book is that nobody is beyond redemption. I understood Jenna’s reaction at bad boy Max suddenly saved and becoming a campus pastor. I totally understand that! I will repeat it again,nobody is too big or small to get redeemed by God.


This book has some good dose of humour and flashbacks to years when the characters were younger.

Some scenes is this book were emotional. I could handle them because they had an element of human reality in them.

The words are easy to understand. Simple and well written.


The author has a good amount of balance between the past years and the present year of her book characters. I commend her for that.


I love how the people in the church rallied round to help each other. That’s what true Christianity is all about. Being there for the other person in trying times.


This is a good book you won’t want to miss.
Isn’t the title catchy? You really need to read to know who actually danced away!


I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

About the author

Author Joanna Alonso

Joanna Alonzo is a walking paradox. She is a beautiful, albeit messy, mixture of thought and emotion, expressed in the form of hopefully readable — and relatable — stories. She is a kingdom kid, who looks forward to being a writer and storyteller even when she reaches heaven. She is passionate about the unreached, about those who have yet to know the Love she found in the arms of the Almighty. She is intrigued by the world and its people, who day by day, continue to convince her that God is the greatest Storyteller of all.
