Pointe of Breaking

by Amy Daws (Goodreads Author), Sarah J. Pepper

When Ivy League & Tutus Collide
A collaboration by Amy Daws & Sarah J. Pepper

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…]

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.]

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.

I received and ARC for an honest review.

5 Stars!!!

This book left me speechless and that does not happen very often! It blew me away and it was so raw that I felt every emotion the characters did. I was nearly crying!

This is a story of Adeline and Leo. Adeline has worked her butt off to become a prima ballerina and people have made her feel less but she doesn’t care and dances to her own beat. She came from a humble family and nothing was handed to her, she was raised to fight for what she believes in and that is ballet.

Leo is a guy who is wealthy and in a frat, he likes to party and enjoys the spoils of life until he gets brought to a ballet. He doesn’t want to go but he is soon glad he did. He sees Adeline and is instantly hooked.

Will there two worlds collide?

Will his family tell him to have a female companion who is rich and wealthy?

Will there worlds, family and careers tear them apart?

I highly recommend you get this book, it makes you feel raw, will make you want to rip it up and throw it away but will have you coming back for more.

The emotions leap off the page and you can feel them!
