Meet ivy league socialite, Leo Richards, and struggling ballerina, Adeline Parker, in this angsty, emotional page-turner.
POINTE Getting screwed over backstage by my married-ex tears my heart into a million tiny pieces. Sitting in the audience at the ballet with my former fling wasn’t my idea of fun.
I live in my pointe shoes, not even my ex can taint my love for ballet. I hate the ballet. This on again/off again crap was getting old. And then my whole world changes when I notice the smoldering gaze… Then I look to the stage, and I can’t take my eyes off…
OF... Leo Richards. Adeline Parker. Concentrating on anything except his sexy…everything, is impossible. Her presence commands my attention…I’ve never experienced this before.
He makes me second-guess everything I’ve ever dreamed about. She makes me question everything I’ve ever known.
Fighting him is a strategic sport—no clothes allowed. All I can think about are her sexy ballerina legs wrapped around me—tutu definitely on.
BREAKING Our scandalous rendezvous is plastered all over NYC’s tabloids. Because of my status in Manhattan, now I’ve dragged her into the limelight.
My ex will stop at nothing to tear us apart. Seriously powerful people forbid me to be with her.
Rumors about his past keep building. I can’t tell her this secret.
When it came to Leo, I only knew the big things. When it came to Adeline, I knew nothing about the little things. But uncovering those things about him [her] may push us past our breaking point.
Expectations verses reality can be a tricky line to walk, In life and in reviews. When I see anything with Amy's name on it I instantly have very high expectations (possibly unfairly high) so I was a little hesitant here. I generally don't tend to enjoy author collaborations, they usually seem a little chopped together, almost like there are too many voices and the flow seems stilted....but when they work...they work...and boy did 'Pointe Of Breaking' work!
Peppers sassy fantastical style complimented Daws' hysterical empathetic voice perfectly. The two authors merged and fed off of each other in a way that draws the reader into their world. A world of Love and hate, a world of extremes and secrets, a world where ambition and attainment are everything.
Adeline Parker dances from the soul...she's had a life filled with love and pain, she learnt early that the two usually go together but she's also one of the bravest characters I've read in a long time. Adeline sees the tough choice and she's willing to make it...will her bravery be enough to catch Leo? or will both of their pasts smash into their present? hmmm well read the book....please read this book!! trust me...you want to read this book!!
Dapep (Daw's and Pepper) have done something here that I sincerely doubt anyone else could've pulled off. They have the perfect Grand Pas De Deux, literally the perfectly step of two. Two very different authors treading the boards together, two very different character a frat boy and a ballerina complimenting each other with a pirouette. The perfect twirl of intrigue, hatred, friendship, love, loss and of course with a twist of suspense.
Perfection. Thank you ladies! 5 very well deserved stars!
