Publisher's Summary

Anastasia Mikhelson is the rising star of the New York City Ballet. She's sacrificed creature comforts, a social life, as well as her own physical well-being for perfection in dance. Even her reputation as the Ice Queen doesn't faze her. Though Ana's at the peak of her career, competition from a new and noteworthy dancer puts all she's worked for in jeopardy.
While Natalie Frederico has shown herself to be a prodigy when it comes to ballet, she much prefers modern dance and living on her own terms. Life is too short for anything else. However, when the opportunity to dance with the New York City Ballet is thrust upon her, it's not like she could say no. Dealing with the company's uptight lead is another story, however. When the two are forced to work side-by-side, sparks begin to fly onstage and off.

Melissa Brayden hits another one out of the ballpark. This might even be her best. I'm no expert on behind the scenes of the NYC Ballet, so can't speak to the accuracy, but I enjoyed the setting and the tension of the competitive environment. If I had to find some small fault, I'd have liked a scene or two more of Natalie's suffering during their separation. Overall, an entertaining listen and an excellent narrator.

Absolutely love the book!

Melissa Brayden did it again! She has a way of making fictional characters seem very real and easy to fall in love with. it was great seeing other characters from the Soho Savvy universe pop in there and say hello.
