This didn't mean sucess - Break Me #WIP #8Sunday #SexySnippets #WeekendWritingWarriors

Happy Sunday, lovelies!

Thank you for all your lovely birthday wishes from last week. It made my day! <3

As for today, I'm running a little bit late with everything, as I've been writing nonstop trying to complete two upcoming deadlines. Today, I'm going to continue to share a snippet from my dark romance, momentarily titled 'Break Me.'

I've skipped down to where we first get to see Ayla's, our heroine's point of view. She is celebrating the end of the ballet season with her colleagues in a disco.

Enjoy and have a lovely day!

Ayla sipped at her glass of sparkled water and glanced at the bouquet of red roses she’d tossed on the seat next to her. She still couldn’t believe Meghan had fallen ill and she’d performed Giselle. She smiled. Heat radiated through her. Butterflies tingled in her stomach. She clenched her hands and pursed her lips. 
 No. 
None of this meant that she would have success from here on forward. The world of ballet was fickle. One moment you were at the top and the next, you could be free-falling without a parachute.

  4. She's a realist, not even taking time to enjoy her success at hand. Nice scene, Elyzabeth!

  5. She's sensible, although I hope she allows herself to enjoy the success a little bit more! Great excerpt.

  6. As one who has sat in the orchestra pit while dancers perform onstage, I can heartily agree with theses sentiments. 'Big breaks' in the world of music can evaporate as quickly as the dying notes of the orchestra.

  8. Love her sense of reality. I wonder why she can't let herself enjoy the moment.

  9. It has to be tough to have a dream that's so difficult you can never feel like you made it...

  10. I never learned dance, but I understand how difficult that dream is to chase.

  11. Tough and determined, but achieving the goal won't be as meaningful if she doesn't let herself realize it.
