Ballerina Claire Ross has never been good enough. Not for the girls in the elite group of professional dancers in her class and certainly not for her brutally honest, overbearing ballet teacher. She definitely doesn’t like what she sees in the mirror. Simply put, she doesn’t love herself… so how could she possibly love someone else?
After twelve years of friendship, Sebastian’s adoring gaze holds more. They soon find themselves unable to resist the transition from friends to lovers.
When tragedy strikes, Claire finds herself in an unfavorable position. Regardless of the weight of the emotion, she must make difficult decisions that impact the rest of her life.
Will Claire see that her true love has been right in front of her? Happily ever after isn’t just for fairy tales. To get hers, all she has to do is trust - open her heart… and fall.
Excellent story with tragic experiences. This is a very emotional story that will have the reader in tears and in joy.
This story is so emotional and beautiful and it made me cry. I loved it so much and it’s now one of my favorites because of all the emotion in it. It’s sad but happy all at the same time and it’s so beautiful.
A Feast For the Imagination
Firstly I would just like to acknowledge the beauty of the author's writing. The imagery is woven into the story unlike anything I've ever ready. It was just beautiful and a feast for the imagination.
Without going too far into the heart of the book, I would like to say that this has been something so relatable to me personally. It shows a journey of self discovery and a journey into self love that is completely enthralling.
This novel made me realize that I have my own Sebastian in my life that makes me feel the same way, and I know I really have to cherish him.
It shows a side of mental health that isn't always understood, depression and what accompanies it. It shows what bullying is like from the inside, and from a completely sweet person like Claire. I've been there and done that and that makes me invest in the characters.
Overall it was a wonderfully moving book that had me engaged at every step. I felt Claire's pain and wanted her to succeed.
You don't want to pass up on this book, because you're in for a ride.
