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.

Review Bumper

I really had not known what to expect when I started Pointe of Breaking because I had not read books by either Amy or Sarah (please forgive me!).  But that is definitely going to change.

Pointe of Breaking was beautifully and seamless written.  The plot was just dead-on right for this book and it flowed at the perfect pace.  Everything played out with a continuous flow and held your attention.

“Fighting for love, losing love, finding love…that’s what helps the weak survive.  That’s what helps the weak find strength.”

Adeline may come across as weak but she is quite the strong and courageous young woman.  She never once lets anything make her give up and just quit altogether.  Her vivacious attitude is what won me over.

Leo, Leo, Leo.  At his young age, he’s probably seen more disturbing things within his high society than I ever care to in my whole life.  But it’s because of what he’s seen, that he wants to be nothing like them.  He knows that there is more to life than money, social status and private clubs.

Adeline and Leo breath life into one another like never before.  But they are in completely different worlds.  She is working class and he is high society.  But they both defy what is deemed by all as unacceptable.  However, there are others who don’t want them to be together and stop at nothing to prevent that from happening.

“Numbness was a blessing compared to the hell of a tortured heart.”

As I said before, you totally forget that this book is written by two people.  However, these characters do not blend at all.  They all hold their own and are very distinct.  I love their different characteristics and how each of them pull different emotions from me.

Amy and Sarah wove together the perfect story.  The dance sequences in this book – they are just magnificent. They are written so unbelievably well that you feel what they are expressing through their moves.  When an author is able to make me feel something that normally needs to be seen with my own eyes – that right there says EVERYTHING about their talent.

Pointe of Breaking has it all – heat, angst, love, jealousy, hatred – so much more.  The authors did a fantastic job of putting you there in the scene and feeling everything these characters went through.  I could easily visualize what was going on and that just made the book more real to me.

“Love wasn’t always gentle.  Sometimes it was ugly.  That was the beauty of it.”

Bravo Amy and Sarah!!  You definitely just earned another fan in me!

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.

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?
