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.

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.

Engaging and Emotional Story!

Pointe of Breaking is an engaging and emotional story about a ballet dancer, Adeline, and Leo, a college student that has everything including secrets. They are drawn to each despite outside forces that try to keep them apart. The roller coaster ride that the authors create for us is exilerating, taking us through the love and heartbreaks and everything in between, including all the twisty turns, as Leo and Adeline find their to each other.

Valerie Gilbert was just wonderful as the narrator for this book. She had the ability to makes us feel all the emotional twisty turns from beginning to end.

Exhilarating and Sexy Romance!

This book captured me right from the start and never let go. Adeline has worked hard to get to where she is today. She has always wanted to dance but an innocent choice just may put her dreams at risk. Leo is drawn to this passionate, talented dancer and will do whatever it takes to make her his. Unfortunately his family secrets could ruin them both. This story is a rollercoaster of emotions that kept me totally engaged. Valerie Gilbert was a huge part of that. I was totally lost in her ability to bring these characters to life. The passion and inflection she used, especially when describing the emotional dance routines was thrilling.
I really liked both Adeline and Leo. They worked hard to be together when there were those who tried to keep them apart. Their journey wasn't easy and the twists and turns kept me totally engaged. If you are looking for a heartfelt, emotional, sexy romance, you will definitely love this audiobook!

Interesting read

The story was different, and a bit too much drama at a times, but it kept me entertained. I couldn't connect with characters and didn't see a draw between them either.

The narration was very good and it made the book better.

I received a credit as a gift and this review is freely given.

Recommended for sure!

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.

4 stars

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.

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
