Publisher's Summary

I travel through life dancing.

All I ever wanted to do was dance, as did my best friend. We'd made so many plans together, but one night an explosion changed it all. Only one of us survived, and I promised myself I'd succeed for us both. And I did, until an accident almost ruined my career, but Maze came back into my life when I needed him most. He pulled me out of the depths of my despair. But could I save him now?

I travel through life fighting.

It had always been Ivy; from the first moment I saw her leaping through the air like she had wings to lift her from the ground. But she was my dream, something I wanted more than anything else in my life. I promised myself I would stay away from her. Violence followed me everywhere and I tried to keep her far away from it. She was my point of illumination in the dark tumultuous world I lived in. But I could not stay away from her. Not when I knew she needed me. As much as I needed her. But could she accept me as I am?

    "Enjoyable Audiobook"

    Good story, hot sexy scenes and ok narrator. The story was different which is nice change and the writing was good . The narration was just ok, he was a little flat but wasn't bad. I think the story needed just a little more meat. I did really enjoy it, I just wish it had more detail and had been longer. Beware of the ending ;) thank goodness book 2 is already out!

    "Beautiful Story"
    What did you love best about The Ballerina & The Fighter?

    I am a former dancer so I love all things ballet. As a hopeless romantic I want everyone to find their soul mate.

    "convince me with your words"

    Loved the story. However like so many audible books, who use only one narrator to narrate male and female characters, it fails to complement the book. When I read a good story, book/novel, I visualize what the character(s) sounds like and look like. A good author, storyteller paints the picture and creates that visualization with written words. A good narrative should do the same with spoken words. When I close my eyes and listen to an audible book, I want to believe that I am listening to the characters, feeling the passion, the action and interaction between the characters. Overall the narrator was ok.

    "Sweet Story!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    I really loved this audio!!! The narrator, Matthew Whitfield did a wonderful job conveying the strong emotions of the characters. Maze and Ivy were the cutest couple…they both held the reader’s heart. The amount of love they had for each other really made them quite sweet and adorable!!! I loved the way that meeting again after a 5 year separation, the bond was still there and grew!!! They both deserve a very happy ending!! Bravo Miss Ursula…now I need to get my hands on the sequel!!!

    "Super good story"

    I really liked this. The whole bi-racial thing was mention maybe once... and didn't really play a big part of the story...which I liked, because the story is not about the color of thier skin, but the characters themselves...

    Now I felt doom and gloom through the first half of the book because the blurp says someone is going to die.. and soon as we Ivy's BFF we know... doom and gloom is on the horizon.

    Now... Maze... the whole Chinese Mafia thing through me for a loop...but I liked it... it was a nice dramatic touch to the story...

    But the ending... Seriously... can you say CLIFFHANGER...

    This book was time well spent.. worth a credit or a sale... maybe not a buy unless it's under 10 bucks, which I think this was... so happy listening...

    Oh... narration was pretty good too!

    "Not worth it"
    Would you try another book from Ursula Sinclair and/or Matthew Whitfield?

    No, its just an adolescent romp. Not worth using your credit or the price. Very tired and predictable formula.
