Emory faces life’s challenges at the one place that’s never failed her, the ballet barre. But even the barre can’t steady her when fate brings her face-to-face with her old college flame, Mason, who’s hoping to return to the NFL after a career-threatening injury. Before they can surrender to their sexual desires and find salvation in each other’s arms, they need to come to terms with their past. Mason must confront the demons that have set him on a path of self-destruction, while Emory must decide whether to keep her painful secrets locked away, or expose them and risk losing the love of her life. But nothing can prepare Mason for what Emory has kept hidden, or the possibility that he himself may be to blame for the very secrets she keeps – and why they continue to haunt her
A story of second chances, Emory Claire once dreamed of being a ballerina, but fate stepped in the way and she lost both that dream and the love of her life Mason.
Both Mason and Emory are well fleshed out characters. Mason is everything in an Alpha make I look for, he’s strong, caring and protective. Emory is a strong likeable female lead, who isn’t afraid to go for what she wants.
There is a strong chemistry between these characters and the author is very good at building and maintaining sexual tension. There is a fair amount of angst in this story yet it works beautifully for this story. This is a truly amazing second chance story and proves that love can last through anything.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review.
