Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00009]

NOW LIVE

Meet ivy league socialite, Leo Richards, and struggling ballerina, Adeline Parker, in this angsty, emotional page-turner.

synopsis

POINTE
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…

OF…
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.

BREAKING
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.

10 Fun Facts You Might Not Need to Know About #DaPep:

From KIMYE to BENNIFER. From BRANGELINA to TOMCAT.
Now we introduce to you…..DAPEP.
Amy DAws and Sarah J. PEPper.

Indie Authors. Best Friends. And now, Co-Authors.

Fun Facts:
1. They both love ranch. Sarah would bathe in it if it didn’t risk an infection.
2. They have little to no boundaries with each other…as became apparent at a book conference in Phoenix. They can’t share the details, but just know it was #MuchTooMuch
3. Sarah actually has a very small amount of ballet experience.
4. Amy once pretended to have ballet experience at church camp so she could get the dance solo. Jesus knew the truth.
5. Sarah has won three dance offs, aside from one. That eleven-year-old haunts her to this day.
6. Sarah & Amy live three minutes apart. And they measure all distance in time.
7. While writing the romantic scenes in Pointe of Breaking, Amy & Sarah couldn’t look each other in the eye.
8. They had no outline for Pointe of Breaking.
9.
Amy takes notes in a Hello Kitty notepad. Sarah takes notes in her head.
10. Amy is convinced that Sarah has a folder in her email account labeled “I hate Amy”. Sarah just laughs every time Amy asks her about it…The fact that she’s not denying it hasn’t escaped Amy’s attention.

~ Review by Angela ~

I have read books by Amy Daws and books by Sarah Pepper before, but this is the first collaboration of these two. I wasn’t sure if they could pull it off as their writing styles tend to differentiate a little bit. Sarah definitely has a more fantastical element to her writing and Amy is 100% romance. I must say that these two have pulled this endeavor off flawlessly.

I never felt like I was reading 2 different books or stories. Even though the story is told from Adaline’s perspective in one chapter and Leo’s in another, it never felt disjointed or just thrown together. Each of the main characters has a definitive voice but I couldn’t tell who wrote what portion. You can tell that they put a lot of thought and love into this collaboration as it shows in the story.

The story of Adaline and Leo is complicated as are both of the characters. I was blown away by the fact that they have real, human emotions and reactions to things. I never once said to myself “No one would do that!” or “No one would say that!” The characters behaved exactly as you would expect them too.

My heart broke for Adaline and the situations she kept finding herself in. I have been in some of those same situations where it seems like you have no other choice but to pick the lesser of two evils. Leo is kind of in the same boat as he has to try to be himself and not let the world of corporate greed overtake him. He has plenty of secrets and isn’t ready to deal with them, but Adaline might be able to help in that aspect as she is strong and generally doesn’t take crap from anyone.

This is fantastic read and a great love story. There were some steamy bits but nothing too racy or raunchy for me. I laughed and swooned and got mad during the journey, which to me makes for a great read. I will definitely read another collaboration between these two. It would be nice to see Amy take on a little of the fantasy side in their next endeavor and stop playing it so safe! 5 books

5762464Sarah J. Pepper specializes 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, bunnies, 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?
