Love on Pointe by Tiffany Odekirk, LDS Blog Tour & Giveaway
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 fell in love with the cover and just as easily I fell in love with Rhys and Emmy. Two completely different people, different backgrounds, cultures and religions yet they were so drawn to each other. Seeing the LDS church's perspective from someone who is not a member was a great way to parallel Emmy's perspective as a church member who wanted to marry someone she loved in the temple. I was drawn in hook, line and sinker into this story. I just had to find out how it would end. And I never ever in a million years saw what happened coming. A mark of a great author, Odekirk doesn't give anything away and you have to find out for yourself how it all ends. An emotional and beautiful journey, Love on Pointe keeps reading until the very end.
