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…]
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.]
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.
Best book of the year!!!!!

Have you ever had a book that makes you feel EVERYTHING?! And not just little feelings, but the extreme highs and lows? Yeah, this was that book for me. This is a rip your heart out, brush it off, and rip it out again story. But it's also a story of never giving up, love, and finding your way through life.
I can't even put into words how amazing this book is. I don't get book hangovers. Until this one.
This is a story of Adeline and Leo. Adeline has been busting her butt to become a prima ballerina, but she hasn't had it easy. She comes from humble beginnings and nothing is handed to her. She doesn't care what people think, and she dances to her own beat.
Leo is a wealthy, entitled, frat guy. He knows his place in the upper society, but has become restless with his life.
Then one night, Leo gets dragged to the ballet,and his whole world is turned upside down.
Can two people from such different backgrounds defy all odds and actually be together? Or will secrets, family, careers, jealousy, and social standing tear them apart?
I knew this book was going to be good even before I started reading it. I love both Amy's and Sarah's other books. But the amount of emotions this book brought out in me simply blew me away. This is not your typical girl meets guy book. This book gets down to the nitty gritty of life. There is so much detail in the book, it left me speechless. You never have to guess how someone is feeling, the writing takes you there. You can feel the emotion Adeline is feeling when she dances, because the writing makes you see her dance. The chemistry between Adeline and Leo literately leaps off the pages. It's the perfect balance of hot, sexy, steamy, heart-breaking, laugh out loud, and anything else you could possibly want in a book.
If you only read a couple of books this year, make sure you read this. This is the best book I've read all year long.
A Hauntingly Beautiful Read!
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
Leo Richards hated the ballet but after watching Adeline Parker perform it was safe to say he was a fan. Watching her perform he was instantly mesmerized. She affected him like no other woman ever had, and it has him wanting more. Adeline and Leo have an undeniable attraction to each other but it goes deeper than that. As their love blossoms, they are faced with certain obstacles that are designed to tear them apart. Can two people from different worlds have a chance at love?
Pointe Of Breaking by Amy Daws and Sarah J Pepper is a hauntingly beautiful story about love, heartbreak, and coming out stronger on the other side. I absolutely loved this book! It's an intense but a very enjoyable read. It brought out all kinds of feels. I cried and even shouted. If you're looking for a different kind of love story then this book is for you! I give this 5 stars
After reading the first chapter I had to put my kindle down and ask myself “Did that really just happen?" Yes, Yes it did. I love when a book has the power to blow your mind in only the first chapter. This book was filled with ever emotion known to man and it was a hell of a roller-coaster ride. Both Sarah and Amy did an incredible job bringing this story to life. The characters are well developed and have personalities that make them stand apart from most books out there. Leo is strong yet he wants his fathers approval. Living the rich life has it's ups and down and Leo breaks the typical stereo type to prove that love is the most important thing in life not power. You need to be able to risk it all for the reward. Screw what is expected from you, you need to make your own choices in life. If you want the sexy ballerina in the fishnets go for it she might just be the best thing that ever happens to you. Adeline is a ballerina that breaks the mold with her strong personality and proves that ballet can be deeper then a girl prancing around in a pink tutu. Just as her life seems to be going in a good direction a man comes in a smashes it to pieces. She decides she need to focus on her dancing no more men. Then she meets Leo and her world is thrown into utter chaos. Dancing is her dream and from one slip up she just might lose it all. As their relationship starts to get serious secrets and lies come to head and Adeline is again left with a broken heart. Leo needs to prove to her that their love is worth fighting for by giving up on his privileged life to finally be the man she deserves. I recommend this book to everyone definitely a must read.
