Rhys Solario has a secret—one he plans to keep: he’s a non-Mormon attending Brigham Young University. With only two semesters left before graduation, he just wants to keep flying under the radar. Then he meets Emmy in a Book of Mormon class, and for the first time, the idea of keeping to himself doesn’t sound so appealing. Emmy Jennings feels confident only when she’s dancing ballet. With every plié and chassé, all her worries fade away. But when she fails to earn a coveted solo, her confidence on the dance floor disintegrates, and the future she’s worked so hard to earn stands in jeopardy. Assigned to be study partners, both Rhys and Emmy face initial anxieties regarding who they really are. But slowly, their tentative friendship evolves into something more. Yet even as love deepens, the pair is faced with a disheartening truth: Rhys can’t take Emmy to the temple, and the promise of eternity is not something Emmy’s willing to give up. With everything on the line, the couple must decide if they’re prepared to reshape their hearts—and their lives—for the promise of forever.

I loved this sweet story! I didn't go to BYU so I have to live vicariously through books ;) Rhys and Emmy are easy to like and their friendship grows as they study together and support each other in the struggles they are facing. They each have vulnerabilities that they feel safe sharing with each other, and that only makes them grow closer. What I liked the most about this book is the journey of these two different people really and truly getting to know each other. There are complex dynamics with their family and friends that also make up a large part of the story, and demonstrate the strengths and compassion of both Emmy and Rhys. The spiritual progression of Rhys is realistic and heartfelt, and took the book to a deeper level. Highly recommend to readers who enjoy LDS fiction!

LOVE ON POINTE is a heart-wrenching story about two college students who find love in each other, but under complicated circumstances have to fight for their happily-ever-after. The characters come across as authentic and are easy to fall in love with, while the story is well balanced between moments of laughter, friendship, heartbreak, inspiration, and romance. Highly recommended to fans of LDS or Christian romance! I loved both Emmy and Rhys from the beginning. I loved that they both had their weaknesses and strengths, and were also dealing with some difficult things in their lives. They felt real and were so easy to connect with. I loved the friendship and the instantaneous chemistry you could feel from them and how that grew until they began really falling for each other. The story kept me engaged the entire way. I loved that the plot had a few twists and that the author didn't shy away from some honest conversations and moments. I felt like the characters' feelings were so accurate. You could feel the emotions. I loved that the story made me laugh, cry, hope, and sigh. The ending was very, very sweet, and perfect for this story. The playlist at the end was a fun addition as well. :) In the end, was it what I wished for? Sometimes I struggle with stories where one character needs to convert for a happily-ever after ending, but the author handled this one well. It felt right and beyond that, I loved reading it. Every. Single. Page. I can't wait for more from this author! I'd love a story about Emmy's sister, Evie...
