Publisher's Summary

POINTE

Getting screwed over backstage by my married ex tears my heart into a million tiny pieces. I live in my pointe shoes, not even my ex can taint my love for ballet. And then my whole world changes when I notice the smoldering gaze....

OF....

Leo Richards. Concentrating on anything except his sexy...everything, is impossible. He makes me second-guess everything I've ever dreamed about. Fighting him is a strategic sport - no clothes allowed.

BREAKING

Our scandalous rendezvous is plastered all over NYC's tabloids. My ex will stop at nothing to tear us apart. Rumors about his past keep building. When it came to Leo, I only knew the big things. But uncovering those things about him [her] may push us past our breaking point.

    Story
    "Winner winner chicken dinner"

    When Ivy League & Tutus Collide, ain't that the truth? Not only did they collide, they tore each other up in the process! I was completely and utterly immersed in this book from the get-go. I loved the dual POV, I fell totally in love with both Adeline and Leo, they both just made complete and utter sense to me. Their interactions were believable and the sexual tension took my breath away. The story follows ballet dancer Adeline who is on a student scholarship programme at a prestigious ballet company and the two loves of her life who were born with silver spoons in their mouths and are part of a power hungry fraternity that threaten everything and everyone to keep their secrets. This is a love story with lots of angst, twists, turns, revenge and jealousy. Can their two worlds merge and will they defy the odds? Will love conquer all? I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would go as far as to say it's my favourite Amy Daws book to date

    "Overall the story was good!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to a friend. The story was good and it had some hotness to it. I can't say that I agreed with eveything but hey I always think that someone does something stupid in these stories. The crazy thing is that we normally do stupid things in real life all the time so nothing that the characters did stopped this book from being good. The narration was pretty good. This book was given to me for my honest opinion and I thought this was a genuinely well written and well narrated story.

    "Devoured every second of it *LOVE*"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pointe of Breaking to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read it in print but I bet it as wonderful in an actual book as it was in audio version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I am having hard time deciding between Adeline and Leo.
    They rocked my world


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This is impossible to say.
    The whole book was truly amazing and I couldn't be happier to have gotten the chance to experience it.

    It is a whole package thing!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Tagline what??

    But I would definitely stand in line for hours to buy a ticket to that movie.


    Any additional comments?

    From the moment I read the synopsis of this book my mind was intrigued and when I started listening to it...that was a sealed deal.

    I have listened through this book almost without breaks...only for sleep.
    The plot was very interesting and full of quality which is pretty obvious from the first chapter.
    This is my first book by Sarah J. Peppers and 4th by Amy Daws and I must say it is one of my favorite ones!
    They really managed to put this collaboration into perfection and I am not saying this lightly because in my past experiences it never ended well when two authors came together so far.

    I love love loooove Leo, he might be one of my top boyfriends from now on :)
    I may be no ballerina but for his sake I will do my best to become one *wink wink*
    Adeline was also a strong heroine...standing her ground and holding her head high even after all the lemons life has served her and kept on going.

    Those two had a wonderful chemistry that captivated me at once.
    I connected so easily to these characters and was a cheerleader number 1 towards their HEA.
    And all the angsty, mystery secrets made this book even more alive.
    It kept me turning page after page like a crazy person craving for more and more.

    The narration bothered me at first.
    It felt like slow motion when the female voices were done while the male ones were spot on.
    But later on as I got into the story and used to narrators voice I found myself liking it :)


    So overall a great book with an amazing story line.
    Beautiful characters that were developing perfectly.
    And a good narrator that brought this book to life.

    I will recommend this book to everyone:)
    I LOVED IT!

    "A Lovely Emotional Rollercoster!"

    First, Pointe of Breaking left me wanting to be a ballerina. The details in the description of the dances and emotions throughout the book is incredible! The love story is intense, both are young college students that need to experience life and find their place among their worlds. It was a smooth and amazing listen that I would absolutely recommend!

    Story
    "Pointe of Breaking"

    Overall a very solid read. The book starts off with a bang, and the angst just grows from there. There is a secret boys club called the Gold. The Gold is ran by Blake and his father, and they run this whole town. Adeline is such a strong person, I love how she is with Leo. The duel narrators totally make the book a hit.

    Story
    "On Pointe!"

    Upon introduction, Adeline's life is in disarray as she bumps into sexy confident Leo. While sharing a drunken confession, Leo learns who Adeline is. It's not until Adeline is nursing a hangover that she is modified to learn who her ride home was.

    I loved the banter between Adeline and Leo. Each clearly smitten with the other from the start. As they overcome obstacles, being able to stay with each other becomes impossible, and there story deepens.

    Pointe of Breaking is passionate, heartbreaking, and healing. A seamless collaboration between authors.

    Valerie Gilbert was on pointe throughout her performance. Duel points of view alternated perfect. She really delivered a range of powerful emotions with all the characters. Take a bow. Bravo!

    "Great story"

    Book review

    Right away I was drawn to it because me and my daughter were dancers. Blake was such an ass right away. When she meets Leos eyes I knew this was going to be a great twist. He is drawn to her even when he finds out she was Blakes ex. She fights to belong and he fights to keep her. The dance scene in which she was honoring 911 was done perfect . I felt it. I cried.these characters were strong whether they were evil or genuine .The story is filled with emotions. I can't wait to read it now.

    "Excellent, loved this!"

    Ballet seems to me to be a forgotten art and books like this always remind me what an incredibly sensuous dance it is. Amy Daws and Sarah J Pepper have crafted a story about love, tradition, elitism and friendship. Adeline and Leo have an instant attraction. Because of social classes, wealth and tradition , there are many obstacles these two have to overcome. So many well developed characters, Blake the one you love to hate along with Sasha and Felicia and good friends like Ivan and Chase give you a well rounded story. I have to say, there is definitely heart wrenching scenes, making your heart ache for the pair, but oh the hot ones that make you burn. This for me was an excellent listen.

    Valerie Gilbert gave an incredible performance of this book. I love her ability to separate her characters and give just the right amount of inflection and emotion to s scene to make it believable.she always brings her best to the book and I look forward to her narrations.

    I liked it. Story was repetitive at times and I think maybe having a guy for the guy povs would be better but the performer did a good job.

    "Great Story with Good twist and turns!"
    Would you try another book from Sarah J. Pepper and Amy Daws and/or Valerie Gilbert?

    I am a huge fan of Amy Daws so it's a def yes there and definitely from Sarah too. I will listen to Valerie again for sure. She has a great reading voice and it's very smooth and easy to listen to. My one complaint and it is a small one is that there wasn't always enough of a difference between her female voices and her male voices. Occasionally it felt like she slipped into the other one when she was still suppose to be in which ever. It wasn't a constant thing which is maybe why I noticed it more the few times it happened.
