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.
Emory Clare and Daniel Mason were college sweethearts but unfortunately their strong desires for their own careers, Emory’s as a ballerina and Mason’s as a professional football player, ended their relationship. Six years later they are reunited when they bump into each other in a bar in Charlotte, NC. Mason is in town to potentially sign up with the Panthers and Emory is no longer a dancer but owns a moderately successful photography business. They come back to each other with a lot of secrets and it causes turmoil in their potential of getting back together and giving it another shot.
While I did enjoy reading this book I just could not get past Emory’s character. She was so harsh towards Mason with the few little secrets he kept from her and was seriously a huge hypocrite. Her secret was huge and she only decided to tell it after she realized it could potentially come out. She had plans to bury it and never let Mason know and I just couldn’t believe that. This book was full of a drama and definitely kept me interested I just didn’t feel all that connected to the characters while reading it. I think my biggest hang up here was that I have previously read the Crash series by Nicole Williams and instantly felt a connection to Jude and Lucy. The only comparison between the two was the ballerina and football player but I guess my brain got hung up on that. Overall it was an enjoyable read just nothing really spectacular about it.
