Review: Pointe of Breaking by Amy Daws & Sarah J. Pepper


Getting screwed over backstage by my married-ex tears my heart into a million tiny pieces.
Sitting in the audience at the ballet with my former fling wasn't my idea of fun. 
I live in my pointe shoes, not even my ex can taint my love for ballet.
I hate the ballet. This on again/off again crap was getting old.
And then my whole world changes when I notice the smoldering gaze...
Then I look to the stage, and I can't take my eyes off...


Leo Richards. Adeline Parker. 
Concentrating on anything except his sexy...everything, is impossible.
Her presence commands my attention...I've never experienced this before.
He makes me second-guess everything I've ever dreamed about.
She makes me question everything I've ever known.
Fighting him is a strategic sport--no clothes allowed.
All I can think about are her sexy ballerina legs wrapped around me--tutu definitely on. 


Our scandalous rendezvous is plastered all over NYC's tabloids.
Because of my status in Manhattan, now I've dragged her into the limelight.
My ex will stop at nothing to tear us apart.
Seriously powerful people forbid me to be with her.
Rumors about his past keep building.
I can't tell her this secret.
When it came to Leo, I only knew the big things.
When it came to Adeline, I knew nothing about the little things.
But uncovering those things about him [her] may push us past our breaking point.




This story was all kinds of beautiful. Romantic, heartrending, and intense, this has to be one of my top five reads for 2015.

The Skulls meets Center Stage in this emotional tale that sees two different but kindred spirits finding each other in a whirlwind of secrets and deceptions. 

I took an instant liking to Adeline. She was fierce but sweet. A purely genuine character who was a little lost but also held onto her dream with all her might. The chemistry that sparked between her and Leo was electrifying and it was exciting to watch as they battled their way through the obstacles that threatened to tear them apart. Leo was also a very sweet, genuine guy who was caught up in the life and legacy he was expected to follow. Adeline was his salvation, and I was so happy when he decided that she was worth to him than the demands that we placed on his shoulders. 

This book set flight to butterflies in my stomach, it made me smile, sigh, tear up and even want to smack a few despicable characters. It was an enthralling read from start to finish. 


Amy Daws is a goof of epic proportions. She enjoys making dumb videos and laughing at herself. She thinks she should have tried her hand at improv theater but figured she'd learn how life looks behind the lens of a camera first. 

Amy lives in South Dakota with her husband, Kevin, and their miracle daughter, Lorelei. The long-awaited birth of Lorelei is what inspired Amy’s first book, Chasing Hope, and her passion for writing. 
Amy's contemporary romance books are a part of the The London Lovers Series and currently have three installments out with more on the way. Her writing style is emotional and self-deprecating with lots of humor sprinkled in. 
Amy's inspiration for writing is and always will be her six precious angel babies and her daughter, Lorelei. It is also her inspiration behind her memoir, Chasing Hope. 
On most nights, you can find Amy and her family dancing to Strawberry Shortcake’s theme song or stuffing themselves inside children’s-sized playhouses because there is nothing they wouldn't do for their little miracle.

I specialize in dark, paranormal romance – think “happy ever after” but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn’t only filled with hugs, kisses, unicorns, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It’s in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of – both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn’t always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn’t mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit? 

"Warning: Addictive passion erupts from her mouthwatering descriptions" - recent review.

Sarah J. Pepper lives in South Dakota with her real-life prince charming. At a young age, she fell for paranormal books and now incorporates that genre with romance that thrives in the hearts of us all. When she’s not storytelling, she’s most likely biking, hoarding chocolate, or taking a bubble bath. Get a glimpse inside her head

"Forbidden Beloved" - Not everyone falls for the murderous prince charming with killer good looks, but Roxy hasn't ever been very lucky.

"Devil's Lullaby" -Cat craved his addictive kiss as much as she ached for his death.
