Jordan’s thrilled that his family is so supportive, as most men don’t find that when they come out; he just wishes they would stop nosing into his private life. When he attends his niece’s dance performance, he understands why his mother points out the visiting dancers in the program. Drawn to Davis from the moment he sees the man’s picture, he can’t wait to see him come out on stage. When he meets the man in person, he’s even more surprised by what he feels.

Grand Jeté is a fast moving holiday story that is just what readers will enjoy on a weekend afternoon. The story is a sweet romance about two young men lucky enough to find the love of their lives when they least expect it. Jordan is a young ER nurse who is getting over a bad relationship. Davis, a visiting ballet dancer whom Jordan has just seen dance, ends up in the ER. Their connection is immediate and the readers will not have any problem seeing the chemistry between them. While Jordan and Davis do have some minor issues to overcome there is no real angst in the story. There are many wonderful secondary characters, as Jordan has many supportive family members and friends that help move the story along. In fact, Jordan’s niece is a scene stealer at times.

If you’re looking for a pleasant way to pass the time, then pick up Grand Jeté by Diana Copland.
