I've finally made it ... only six years later than expected.
New York promises to be the experience of a lifetime, and if I'm lucky enough, a chance to dance on Broadway and fulfill a lifelong desire.
After graduating from Boston Conservatory, I'd intended to meet the love of my life, Baxter Sampson, in the city that never sleeps, and share the rest of my life with him. But sometimes dreams don't go as planned, and we have to make new ones. I know Bax would have made it big; he was such a phenomenal dancer. I wish I could have been there to see it happen, but I can't wait to catch a Broadway show and see his name in lights.
Maybe he'll still remember me.
Eight years in New York have all but stolen my dreams from me.
After years of auditioning for every contemporary ballet production in New York, I had to admit defeat. I wasn't good enough to make it on Broadway. I wasn't good enough for Jasmine, the only girl I've ever loved, to keep her promise and meet me here after she graduated six years ago. So my plans changed-they had to. But when there's an inexplicable force driving you to perform, you have to catch the spotlight wherever you can, even if it's in the last place you expected to find it. My life had always revolved around Jaz and dance, my two true passions. I've already lost one-I can't lose the other.

This is the first time I have read a Lisa Edward story and let me tell you I was not disappointed. What drew me to this story was not only the beautiful cover or because it was a second chance love story, but it was about dance. I love to watch dancing, whether it be ballet, ballroom, contemporary, jazz or tap. I love it all and this book, the way she wrote it, I could see and feel the dance scenes. I got a lump in my throat a few times when the dances were portrayed because it felt so real from the emotions the characters were pouring into their dance. This is a very emotional and very sexy read! I really enjoyed it. It bogged down a few times, but it picked right back up and I flew through it. The love scenes are both tender and erotic. There is so much misunderstanding and miscommunication that caused them 6 years of their lives and your heart hurts for them. I wanted to scream what a waste! Why didn’t you just listen! Why didn’t you try harder, but were there reasons for this? Absolutely. The characters had their own journeys they had to complete and personal obligations to be met. The characters are very well developed and the secondary cast of characters add a richness to the story, even the villain, the choreographer. From the second chance meeting in New York through the heartache and secrets that unfold, this book is beautiful, heartfelt and extremely real. You feel every emotion that is given through the characters whether it is interpreted through their dancing or through the trials they are put through to make this love work. I truly loved this book and I highly recommend you read it if you love second chance love stories!
