Her past is wrought with demons.
His past is full of heartbreak.
Yet he's the one person that can remind her what it means to live.
Abbi Jenkins never thought she would leave the walls of the mental institution that's housed her for the last year. Now she has, but that doesn't mean she's forgotten everything Pearce put her through.
She knows there's only one way to deal with the depression that claws at her mind each day, and ballet becomes more than a hobby, a dream. Ballet - and Julliard - becomes a reason to live. Something to hold on for.
Blake Smith left London for one reason and one reason only. Running from the heartbreak of his past was never something he wanted to do, but with constant reminders everywhere he turned, it became his only option. When he arrives in New York City, he vows he'll keep the promise he made to his sister and get into Juilliard.
But he doesn't expect to be paired with Abbi in class, the girl whose eyes show a world of pain he's seen before. Pain he knows too well. As each hour they spend together pulls them closer, Blake can't fight his need to save her from herself.
Lines blur as their pasts are wrenched into the open, and they have to ask themselves whether they're too broken to ever to be fixed, or if they're the healing the other needs.
“Come dance,” he repeats, spinning suddenly.
“You’re insane.” I shake my head. “I’ll get soaked.”
Blake grins. “Isn’t that the point of dancing in the rain?”
“It’s getting crazy out there. I’m getting wet even standing here because of the damn windows!” I move into the center of the shelter. “Freakin’ hell.”
“So what’s the problem? Come on.” He holds a hand out, his long fingers begging me to grasp them. I look from his hand to his eyes, his twitching lips, his wet hair dripping down his face.
“I … No.”
“Trust me.” He’s not asking me. “Trust me, Abbi. Just two minutes. That’s all you have to do. Just take my hand and dance in the rain with me for two short minutes.”
“Why are you so determined to get me out there? If you want to dance, we can do that here.”
He steps back under the shelter and takes my hovering hand. He’s wet but heat radiates off him and wraps around me. Our faces are inches apart as I look up at him and he down at me.
“Because I see the way you lose yourself when you dance and I want you to lose yourself like that with me. I want you to get lost in me. It’s selfish but I don’t care.”
I breathe in sharply and try to ignore the way his grip on my hand tightens. “I don’t … I don’t know if I can let myself,” I whisper.
“Sure you can. You just admitted you don’t have to pretend with me. And you don’t.” Blake takes my other hand and slowly pulls me forward. “All you have to do is close your eyes. I promise you, you won’t get lost alone.”
Wow, I don’t even know where to start … You have a girl that was horribly broken, so bad that she almost couldn’t make it back up to the light … you have a hot Brit who tragically lost his sister. Both of them broken, but together oh so perfect.
Abbi literally broke my freakin’ heart on almost every page! There were times when I seriously didn’t think she was going to make it, but she was just so strong and she wouldn’t let the darkness win. Totally loved her strength and perseverance!
Blake was also fighting some demons, but they were demons from the past, namely the fact that he couldn’t save his sister from herself. It’s something that he will always have to live with and when the full story comes out my heart (which was already broken from Abbi’s story) totally went to pieces!
I am used to your books being rip your heart out ugly cry books (I have ugly cried in I swear to god every book you have written) but this one was different, it was much darker than your other books and it really wasn’t as steamy as I’m use to reading from you. Totally not a bad thing, it was a refreshing change and shows that you are capable of more than writing just really hot sex scenes (which of course I already knew but this confirmed) This book was heartbreaking but sweet, I cried effing buckets but then you would write something that would totally lift my spirits back up because it was just so damn sweet and cute!
Although this book was different from the rest of the series, Abbi’s story is the one with the most punch and impact, Jesus I don’t even know what else to say other then I <3 you and if you ever stop writing books I may have to travel across the ocean to knock some sense into you :P
