$50,000 to appear on Dancing with the Stars.
$50,000 to humiliate myself on national television, lose my privacy, and become the laughingstock of the Marine Corps. But I can’t say no. Not even if it means I have to face the woman who once destroyed me.
Ten years ago, reality star Selena Martinez was my dance partner and my girl. Though the self-professed ugly duckling is now a beautiful swan, the girl I fell in love with is long gone. Consumed with being a celebrity, her inner beauty has been replaced by an ugly lust for fame. When our coach offers me $5,000 a week to appear on TV’s hot ballroom dance reality show, I have no desire to relive my painful past with Selena, but I made a promise to my buddy that I’d take care of his wife and kids if he died on the battlefield.
One season, ten weeks, a small sacrifice to make for the man who saved my life.
Hand me my dance shoes.
