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.
When Emory was in college she lived for ballet. She was even accepted to a prestigious ballet company. Unfortunately, her boyfriend Mason has NFL aspirations that conflict with hers. After Mason breaks up with Emory she is devastated. Sadly, before she is even able to join the ballet company she is injured and can no longer dance at a professional level.
Fast forward six years...
One night Emory is at a bar when she bumps into Mason, literally. She is shocked to see the man who broke her heart many years ago. He is in town to possibly get a new NFL contract after his old team let him go due to injury.
Mason knows he screwed up when he let Emory go all those years ago. He is unhappily married to a woman who only married him for his fame and money but what does he expect? That's the lifestyle he wanted...or so he thought.
As they get to know each other again and catch up on each others lives, Mason can't shake thoughts of Emory. He is getting a divorce and a possible new location and decides he wants to be where Emory is. But can she forgive him for breaking her heart and choosing football over her?
Mason keeps things from Emory, small things, that he doesn't feel she needs to know. Emory get upset when she finds out and asks him to please be honest with her about everything if they are going to try again. But, Emory is keeping a big secret of her own. Will she tell Mason? How will he react? She can't keep her nightmare's a secret forever.
I thought this was a good easy read and the author Prescott Lane is a sweet sweet lady. I want to thank her for her patience with me on this review. I was sent a copy of this story in exchange for a fair review but unfortunately couldn't read it when I wanted due to a family illness. I was so glad to finally be able to read it and I look forward to more from her.
