Publisher's Summary

Breaking the rules was what she liked best. That was her sport. Renegade, rebel, bad girl. Getting away with it. Pia Soto is the sexy and glamorous prima ballerina, the Brazilian bombshell who's shaking up the ballet world with her outrageous behaviour. She's wild and precocious, and she's a survivor. She's determined that no man will ever control her destiny. But ruthless financier Will Silk has Pia in his sights, and has other ideas...

Sophie O'Farrell is Pia's hapless, gawky assistant, the girl-next-door to Pia's Prima Donna, always either falling in love with the wrong man or just falling over. Sophie sets her own dreams aside to pick up the debris in Pia's wake, but she's no angel. When a devastating accident threatens to cut short Pia's illustrious career, Sophie has to step out of the shadows and face up to the demons in her own life.

A stunning story!

A fascinating world of dance, a story about strong women with secrets, how they live with their demons. It is filled with excitement, intrigue and unlikely opportunities. The characters are brilliant, a story is beautifully told. One of the few books I could read all day.

Another captivating story

Lots of twists and turns and couldn’t wait to hear how the plots ended. Only downside was that Imogen Church, who I have loved in other audiobooks by other authors, made some of the males sound gormless which spoiled it slightly and I started to dread their parts.

Love Karen Swan but this not one of my favourite s.

Karen Swan is one of my favourite authors but found the storyline of Prima Donna quite difficult to get interested in . Not sure whether that was because of the subject matters, or the fact that I found all the main characters were quite unlikeable until I was into the last third of the book. I will continue to read Karen Swan books as she is a great storyteller but could not relate to this book in the same way as to many of her others. Found some of the accents in the narration a bit irritating too.

Ballet

This book is a good holiday read. With different story line that has kept me amused. Would have preferred the men’s parts to be read but men but overall ok

This book is a joy

What a wonderful book. If you love Karen Snow's book this will not disappoint, also if you love dance. I couldn't stop listening to t I loved the narration the voices really brought it to life.

I recommend this book,
