Poised to sweep the floor at the 1987 UK Junior Salsa Championships, 13-year-old Bruce Garrett has fire in his heels and the world at his feet until one fateful night, a freakish bullying incident robs him of his confidence and diverts his life down a very different path. 25 years later, having locked away his boyhood dreams, Bruce finds himself out-of-shape, unloved and truly wedged in his comfort zone. It takes the arrival of Julia, his smart, funny, gorgeous new American boss, to force him to re-examine his dull, passionless existence. But she's way out of his league, and with expert lothario and alpha-male office nemesis Drew in rampant pursuit of her, it's enough to make Bruce want to give up on himself all over again. Can his loyal sister, childhood dance mentor, and crazy new amateur salsa pal help Bruce unshackle his dancing beast, regain his long lost fury and claim the love of his life?
