#Review Shimmy for Me by DeAnna Cameron

Title: Shimmy for Me
Author: Deanna Cameron
Rating: 3.5 stars

This is the first book I've ever read with a belly dancer as the main character. The premise of the story was interesting. I enjoyed the set up and the writing was really good.

My one big complaint about Shimmy for Me was that we didn't get more of Derek and Abby. Their big one night stand was a fade to black, so we didn't get to see their interaction. Even most of their work moments were glossed over. What we did get I loved. I just wished there was more of it.

I would recommend this book to readers looking for a quick romance.
