“…I wanted you to fantasize about bending me to the point where I’d break…Oh, I want you to find my breaking point.”
This was one of those books that I 1clicked because of the cover, for some reason I seem really drawn to ballet dancers at the moment. This book starts with a bang with a kick ass prologue that lets you in on the emotional journey you are about to begin. This prologue got to me and only salivated those taste buds for the rest of the book.
“Much ink had been spilt in efforts to describe love. Countless sonnets were dedicated to a beloved. Canvases decorated in the finest museums; each a testament to express absolute devotion. The very emotion that drives us into each other’s arms will forever be exemplified in the arts. Yet, when I expressed this impossibly beautiful feeling using my body as a medium, he only saw heartbreak.”
Adeline had worked hard to get where she was today, she didn’t come from money, she had earned everything she had achieved and the culmination of that was just about to take place…she was just about to step out on stage as the star of the Joffrey School of Ballet, all the stars are aligning until her ex-fiancé shows up. Adeline had been strong since they split trying to forget what had happened with Blake. Adeline was his dirty little secret; he was rich and had kept her a secret for fear of family repercussions. He chose his family over her and it still hurt. He still manages to affect her though and nearly destroys her performance and has most likely destroyed her career. She drowns her sorrows in a bar and lucky enough there is a knight in shining armour to come and rescue her.Read more ›
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 collaberations, 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 see's 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!
