Publisher's Summary

Anastasia Mikhelson is the rising star of the New York City Ballet. She's sacrificed creature comforts, a social life, as well as her own physical well-being for perfection in dance. Even her reputation as the Ice Queen doesn't faze her. Though Ana's at the peak of her career, competition from a new and noteworthy dancer puts all she's worked for in jeopardy.

While Natalie Frederico has shown herself to be a prodigy when it comes to ballet, she much prefers modern dance and living on her own terms. Life is too short for anything else. However, when the opportunity to dance with the New York City Ballet is thrust upon her, it's not like she could say no. Dealing with the company's uptight lead is another story, however. When the two are forced to work side-by-side, sparks begin to fly onstage and off.

    "Bravo"

    Melissa Brayden hits another one out of the ballpark. This might even be her best. I'm no expert on behind the scenes of the NYC Ballet, so can't speak to the accuracy, but I enjoyed the setting and the tension of the competitive environment. If I had to find some small fault, I'd have liked a scene or two more of Natalie's suffering during their separation. Overall, an entertaining listen and an excellent narrator.

    "Absolutely love the book!"

    Melissa Brayden did it again! She has a way of making fictional characters seem very real and easy to fall in love with. it was great seeing other characters from the Soho Savvy universe pop in there and say hello.

    "Background noise and kind of flat"

    Throughout the book there is a high pitched background noise that is very distracting. I found I had to turn the book off several times because the noise was so distracting and bothered my ears. The characters did not have the same fun interactions that her previous books had, but I think this may be the narrator, previous book's narrator added a lot of playful banter and more emotion in the way she read it which really added depth to the characters and their interplay.

    "Awesome"

    I loved this book even though around chapter 15 I quit listening because it made me mad. It took me a few days to get back to it and I'm glad I did. The author took me on an awesome journey about finding love and coming out of your shell.

    Story
    "Nice romance, but Waiting in Wings was better"

    It was a nice romance and I read it quickly, but quite frankly the parts I liked the most were the ones when The characters from Waiting In The Wings made a cameo. I loved seeing them again. That should probably tell you something... Waiting in the Wings is a better book in my opinion, but if you've read it already, this one is nice too, even if a little angsty! The production of the audiobook wasn't very good though, you can notice all the cuts and additions they made, they're not smoothed out. But I recommend it anyway!

    Story
    "Endearing"

    The book was a little slow to start than the last book I listened to "Waiting in the wings" by the same author. But the sorry was very endearing. The story of two opposites who find their center within each other. I also love how Melissa Brayden entertwined her other stories within this book. She definitely has me hooked on her writing!

    "Cute story"

    The sound/production is terrible. The story is really cute. I like the Soho Series much better, but Melissa Brayden doesn't disappoint.
