Ballet takes everything from you.
All your sweat, all your tears, all your dedication, all your time.
There are no drunken nights, no drugs, no boyfriends, no distractions whatsoever.
But even the most focused ballerinas have a dirty little secret...
Mine is working as a stripper at Club Ecstasy.
That’s where I first meet him.
I dance for him privately, staring into his deep blue eyes. And try desperately to remember rule number one of being an exotic dancer.
Don't fall for your customers.
I’m one of those people who REALLY hates when it is not plainly stated that a book is NOT a standalone. I won’t read any more of this author’s work.15
I finished this book in about an hour! I just could not put it down! The plot twists and turns, leaving you in the throes of suspense! A lot of the book brought tears of joy and of pain!!! Extremely relatable story!55
This is book one of the Broken Slipper series and [email protected]*n this book was heart stopping!! Everything in this book was full of passion, broken promises, desire and betrayals thrown in. Calum is a dark Billionaire who is ruthless in all he does. He is full of demons from his past that mad him who is. This past also has a way of crushing him. Kaia is a young ballet student who doesn't really know her true beauty, because of the verbal abuse form those closest to her. She takes on a job at Club X to pay for the demands of her father. What happens when Calum and Kaia's paths cross? Will the rules be broken? I can't wait for book two with the cliffhanger of this book.55
I thought the story line was interesting but there were so many errors, it was kind of hard to get through. Switches between voices in the middle of a chapter...grammar mistakes...at one point, Kaia’s cat was referred to as a “him” in one sentence and a “her” in the next. I’m aware that the ebook version isn’t always as perfect as the hard copy but this was overboard.25
Wow!! This was such a good story. Kaia is a ballet dancer and has always wanted to dance for a company. She has her eyes set on NYB. To make ends meet and to help pay off her debt to her father she works at Club X. That is very forbidden for ballet dancers, but she is very careful on not getting caught. One night there she meets Calum and he is intrigued by her. He knows she has had ballet training and that is one thing that draws him to her. While they work out an agreement, things are brought to life. She has a father who is a sick and twisted arse. He has a ballerina who is crazy as a nut and wants him. There is lots of drama, angst, crazy hateful people and some twists. This took me on an emotional ride and the ending, OMGosh!!! I couldn’t put it down until I was done. Vivian pulled me into the ballet world and has left me wanting the next one quickly. I can’t wait to read The Dancer to see what will happen next.55
I've read several books written by Vivian Wood; she has done a great job at writing this fabulous story; she is one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait to read more of her books. The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book. I need more....please55
