    As Dust Dances by [Young, Samantha]

    The New York Times Bestselling author of the On Dublin Street series and Play On returns to the world of the arts in this intense and emotional standalone romance about love, sacrifice, and surviving both. 
    Once upon a time Skylar Finch was the lead singer of a hugely successful American pop-rock band. But fame made her miserable. When years of living a lie suddenly ended in tragedy, Skylar fell off the map.
    Eighteen months later she’s sleeping in a tent in a cemetery in Glasgow, making just enough money to eat by busking on the streets. She manages to avoid recognition, but not the attention of one of Glasgow’s ambitious A&R executives. 

    Killian O’Dea works at Skyscraper Records, Scotland’s most successful record label. Raised by his uncle and owner of the label, Killian’s upbringing would have been devoid of affection entirely if it wasn’t for his loving sister. Killian is unflinchingly determined to bring the label more success than ever, and the young homeless woman who busks on Buchanan Street is going to help him do that. Her music speaks to him in a way he refuses to over-analyze. All he knows is that if it can touch his dark soul, it’ll set everyone else’s alight. 

    Skylar makes it clear that she doesn’t want to sign with him. But when she experiences the dangerous reality of a woman sleeping rough, Skylar has no one else but Killian to turn to. An undeniable connection forms between them. But Skylar doesn’t want the career Killian is trying to forge for her, and when her past comes back to haunt her Killian will be faced with a decision that could ruin him. He must either free Skylar from his selfish machinations and destroy everything he’s ever worked for, or lose a woman who has come to mean more to him than he ever thought possible.

    Excerpt
    My wrist protested as I pulled my sweater over my head. I was just reaching for Killian’s tee when his office door opened. “Are you read—”
    We both froze.
    Me in my bra and jeans.
    His lips parted, not even hiding that he was taking in every inch of me. I flushed all over.
    Killian cursed under his breath and then slammed his office door shut so no one would see me from the hall while finally turning his back to me. He sounded hoarse when he spoke. “Sorry. I thought you’d be dressed by now.”
    “My wrist was hurting,” I lied. “I needed a minute.”
    That was all it took to make him move. Suddenly he was in front of me, grabbing the tee out of my hands. “What are you doing?” I tried to cover myself.
    Killian gave me an impatient look. “It’s not anything I haven’t seen before. Lift your arms.”
    “I can put the tee on myself.”
    “The longer you argue, the longer I see you half-naked. I’m a man who appreciates the female form, so I don’t mind. I can do this all day.”
    Grunting, I lifted my arms, my annoyance with him lessening as he carefully pulled it down over my head and then gently placed my arms through the short sleeves. He shrugged it down slowly, as if savoring those moments of naked skin.
    My breath caught as his fingers brushed the sides of my breasts and my eyes flew to his as he pulled the T-shirt down excruciatingly slowly, caressing my skin with it. Those dark eyes smoldered.
    Then somehow, we were standing closer, our bodies almost touching. Excitement tingled between my legs and I felt my nipples peak against the fabric of my bra.
    A flush crested Killian’s cheeks and his chest rose and fell in shallow breaths.
    I forgot everything.
    Where I was.
    Who I was.
    Who he was.
    All I could think about was the way my skin prickled to electrified life under his touch. I wanted him to kiss me. I wanted him to push me up against his desk, rip my jeans off, and thrust into me.
    My breath shuddered at the thought and Killian’s eyes blazed even hotter, as if he’d been able to read my mind.
    “Sir, Mr. Byrne would like to speak with you!” Eve’s voice called through the door and shattered the moment.
    Killian stumbled back. His hands dropped from my waist, allowing the T-shirt to fall.
    I tried to catch my breath as he whirled away from me. “Just … Just a second,” he called back.
    “Killian …”
    He glanced over his shoulder at me, his expression unreadable. “I’m Killian again?”
    Confused, I blinked. “What?”
    Exhaling heavily, he shook his head. “Nothing.” Then his nostrils flared as he stared at me. I glanced down at myself. His T-shirt drowned me. It also smelled of him, which was very bad because I really needed to stop thinking of Killian and sex in the same sentence, and wearing his scent was not helping. “I look ridiculous.” But I didn’t think Killian thought I looked ridiculous at all.





    Review



    The synopsis already explains well as it is the story nor can I say much more to not release a great spoiler, but I swear that I never imagined myself to be as stuck to a plot as I was with As Dust Dances. As soon as I started reading I could not buy much of Skylar's drama, I had a feeling she was just a spoiled girl who could not handle a bad moment in life. But Samantha Young knew how to conquer me by presenting moments from the past with moments from the present so that little by little I could understand the real reasons for the girl's crisis.



    Skylar has a brilliant creative mind to compose songs that touch people's hearts and ends up attracting attention from Killian but she does not want this attention, she just wants to remain anonymous because she has not yet recovered from some unresolved issues of the past.



    Killian is a beautiful and determined guy who does not accept NO as an answer and ends up leading the confused and withdrawn Skylar to resume her music career to her despair. Skylar sees no alternative and agrees to record her new pieces of music with some conditions. From this unlikely partnership, many things will change in their lives.



    The music of Skylar ends up achieving a result that she never imagined as much for her as for Killian. I loved the way the connection between the two gradually grew, as they both lowered their guard and indulged in the feelings they had for each other and in the end I could not help but give a shout that even scared my poor husband, because never I imagined that everything would end up in that way.

    Wonderful.




    I loved the cover too much and I'm already praising Micah's book and one for Killian's sister, after all she's so cute that she deserves a love story of her.



    Sinopse


    A autora do New York Times Best-seller da série On Dublin Street e Play On retorna ao mundo das artes neste romance intenso e emocional  sobre o amor, sacrifício e saber sobreviver a ambos.


    Era uma vez... Skylar Finch era a vocalista de uma banda pop-rock americana de enorme sucesso. Mas a fama a fez infeliz. Quando anos de uma vida de fingimento de repente terminam em tragédia, Skylar some do mapa.


    Dezoito meses depois, ela está dormindo em uma tenda em um cemitério em Glasgow, ganhando dinheiro suficiente para comer  cantando nas ruas. Ela consegue evitar o reconhecimento, mas não a atenção de um dos ambiciosos executivos da A & R em Glasgow.


    Killian O'Dea trabalha na Skyscraper Records, a gravadora de maior sucesso da Escócia. Criada por seu tio e dono do selo, a vida de Killian teria sido desprovida de afeição por completo se não fosse por sua irmã amorosa. Killian está resolutamente determinado a trazer ao rótulo mais sucesso do que nunca, e a jovem sem-teto que mora na Buchanan Street vai ajudá-lo a fazer isso. Sua música fala com ele de uma maneira que ele se recusa a analisar demais. Tudo o que ele sabe é que, se pode tocar sua alma sombria, isso incendiará todas os outras.



    Skylar deixa claro que ela não quer assinar com ele. Mas quando ela experimenta a perigosa realidade de uma mulher que dorme nas ruas, ela não tem ninguém além de Killian a quem recorrer. Uma conexão inegável se forma entre eles. Mas Skylar não quer a carreira que Killian está tentando forjar para ela, e quando seu passado volta para assombrá-la, Killian será confrontado com uma decisão que pode arruiná-lo. Ele deve libertar Skylar de suas maquinações egoístas e destruir tudo o que ele já trabalhou, ou perder uma mulher que passou a significar mais para ele do que jamais imaginou ser possível.

    Resenha


    A sinopse já explica bem como é a história nem posso mais falar muito para não soltar um grande spoiler, mas juro que nunca imaginei me ver tão presa a uma trama como foi As Dust Dances. Logo que comecei a leitura não consegui comprar muito o drama de Skylar, estava com uma sensação de que ela não passava de uma menina mimada que não soube encarar bem um momento ruim da vida. Mas Samantha Young soube como me conquistar apresentando momentos do passado com momentos do presente para que aos poucos eu pudesse entender os reais motivos da crise da garota.

    Skylar tem uma mente criativa genial para compor músicas que tocam o coração das pessoas e acaba atraindo atenção de Killian porem ela não quer esta atenção  ,ela apenas quer continuar no anonimato pois ainda não se recuperou de umas questões mal resolvidas do passado. 

    Killian é um cara lindo e decidido que não sabe ouvir Não como resposta e acaba levando a confusa e retraida Skylar a retomar sua carreira musical para desespero dela. Skylar se vê sem alternativa e aceita voltar a gravar com algumas condições. A partir dessa parceria improvável, muitas coisas vão mudar na vida destas duas pessoas sofridas.

    A música de Skylar acaba conseguindo alcançar um resultado que ela jamais imaginou tanto para ela como para Killian. Amei a forma como aos poucos se foi criando a conexão dos dois, como ambos foram baixando a guarda e se entregando aos sentimentos que tinham um pelo o outro e no final não pude deixar de dar um grito que até assustou meu pobre marido, pois jamais imaginei  que tudo fosse terminar daqulea forma.
    Maravilhoso.

    Amei demais a capa e já estou torcendo pelo livro de Micah e um  para a irmã de Killian, afinal ela é tão fofa que merece uma história de amor só dela.
    5/5 estrelas
    beijos,Myl
