Vincent Gregory hasnít had any luck on the job front lately.  Heís been working for an escort service, but when even that dries up he tries out for a job dancing in an all-male revue.  At the tryouts, he finds a want ad looking for an in-home caregiver, and he calls the number.  To his surprise, he gets an interview that very day.

Fifty-five year old Jonathan is disabled and in a wheelchair, but still very attractive.  Vince doesnít want to be a gigolo, though, so he tries to keep things between them professional.  Can he keep his other job, and his past, a secret from Jonathan, or will it destroy everything?

Dancing for Jonathan was one of those books with an engaging storyline that I still couldnít fully connect with.  Vince was a fairly sympathetic character, despite his jobs, in part because Iím a sucker for down-on-his-luck type heroes.  He may have taken a long time to clue in that his acting career wasnít going to take off, but he did what he had to do to survive until he figured it out.  Jonathan, on the other hand, was harder to get a handle on.  I was never sure if he truly cared about Vince or liked him because he was hot and convenient.  The age difference between Vince and Jonathan, and Jonathanís disability, were unusual and made the story more interesting.  Overall I enjoyed Dancing with Jonathan, but not as much as I hoped to due to my lack of connection with the characters.
