    4.5 stars This book was a bit of a sneak attack. I just liked Play On and didn’t know what to expect from AS DUST DANCES but it started so very strong that I was grabbed almost immediately.Skylar, the female protagonist has such an unusual story, she’s a successful lead singer of a band, or she was 20 months ago. When the book starts she’s been living homeless, on the streets of Glasgow for nearly six months. From there, everything in the r...

    Good Lord in the heaven. This book is EVERYTHING!

It’s the BOOK with capital letters. It’s a book that everyone has to read. It’s an experience you can’t leave without. This book changed my life. And I will never look at romance books like I’ve done befor...

    You're mine. And I'm yours.Music is magical.It's not just words strung together or sounds of an instrument. It's something beyond what could be simply described. It's the only thing that can translate for your heart and soul. Music can reach past generations and even language barriers. We all love music, because it's the one thing that can make us all FEEL. It can connect us to our own memories, one's that we cherish in our hearts and one's that ...
  • Jessica (Angie & Jessica's Dreamy Reads)
    Samantha Young has consistently blown me away with every romance she's written and As Dust Dances just landed up there as one of my new favorites. This story is such a beautiful one, a slow burning love/hate dynamic between a homeless rock star and the brooding alpha male that discovers her busking on a Glasgow street. Young illustrates the most captivating storyline on these pages, an unputdownable account of music and romance, of friendship and...

    kfforever Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KindleFriendsForeverThis is going to appear like a strange way to write a review, but this is how it feels right to do. I’ve been reviewing for just over sixteen months now and I have never been so compelled to put words to paper the way this one has compelled me to. Usually, I stew over my thoughts for just a little while, but not on this one, oh no. This one demanded I write the review quickly, l...

    6 stars (no really, 6 stars)Omgggggggggg, this book was unbelievable!!!!I’m speechless at how much I loved it!This book filled my heart with every feeling I could think of! I was hooked from the first page and I just lost myself in the lives of Skylar and Killian

    Music is the outburst of the soul. There is nothing more moving than a tale threaded with music. Music that complements and completes the story. Music that makes the story. Music is the key to the heart and soul, and Samantha Young unlocks and unleashes a musical concert of feels in As Dust Dances. From beginning to end, Samantha Young paints a stunning story in vivid detail that hits the heart and sings to the soul. So broken. So brave. So brea...

    "How can he be this irritating and sexy at the same time?" Samantha Young took me on a heartbreaking journey that kept me on the edge from start to finish. Being a music lover, I was very intrigued and excited to read As Dust Dances. I really really enjoyed the lyrics and the music details in this story.I was pulled in from the first page, being inside Skylar's head, privy to her thoughts and feelings was a frightening and thought provoking pla...

    This book was fantastic! Samantha has a gift for writing strong, but flawed characters. Skylar was living the dream she thought she wanted until she realized it was a life that bleeding her soul. Tragedy struck Skylar and when she couldn’t take it she disappeared. When she meets Killian O’Dea on the streets in Glasgow her life changes again. Watching the Skylar and Killian was beautiful and heartbreaking. I’m sad the story is over, I could...

    Review by Lisa KaneSkylar Finch is homeless. She spends her days busking in Glasgow. She hopes the generosity of strangers will buy the things she needs to survive another day. I was busking so I could buy a meal for the night. And if it was a particularly good day, money to get into the swimming center so I could use one of their showers and a hair dryer.She travels alone, with the occasional company of a heroin addict, Ham and his girlfriend Ma...

    Oh, Samantha Young, you always capture my heart! What a breathtaking story filled with so many emotions. I was addicted from the start.My heart went out to Skylar. She is written with so much love and heartache and hope. Her journey is raw and hits you with so many emotions. The intense connection between her and Killian will move you. Killian is so broody and complex, and he’s written in a way that makes you so intrigued by him. I loved their ...

    ARC received for an honest reviewI would pick up the phone book if Samantha Young wrote it, and even though I am not a big fan of YA (I am an old fart, they often feel wwaaaaaayy too young for me), I completely adored As Dust Dances.I didn't read the blurb of this story before I read it, because sometimes I just love diving in completely blind. And it was worth doing this here.As Dust Dances did not feel YA or even NA to me. Our leading lady Skyl...

    Maybe 3.5. It had good parts, but just wasn’t great for me. Disappointing because normally Young’s books blow me away.

    AHHHH!!! Samantha Young has done it again.. man!! Another phenomenal story with amazing characters that capture your heart!!! Blown away!!FULL REVIEW:THIS STORY!! It truly makes you think twice about the people you meet in the world. We get so caught up some times, that we may never know just what some simple kindness shown to others may actually do for them on that particular day.Reading about Skylar touched my heart on so many levels. And as we...

    4 STARS I was tethered to him somehow and I didn’t think I’d be able to cut myself loose so easily. As Dust Dances was a gripping, beautiful and emotional romance. It was a story of pain and perseverance, of strength and second chances, and of love where you least expect it. It also had a delicious enemies to lovers vibe in a way that only Samantha Young could deliver. I glared at him with my good eye. “Fine. Hospital. I’ll add it to t...

    AS DUST DANCES, the next book from the amazing, talented Samantha Young. Set back in Scotland but Glasgow area this time rather than Edinburgh, this book is a must read for everyone. This book will literally have you on your knees in love with this author and these characters. I thought I was immune to Samantha Young’s spellbinding, but it goes to show you how wrong I was. This book captivated me from start to finish and even at the end I want...
  • Rhonda Brant
    Wow, just wow! I’m not sure how Samantha Young does it, but honestly, she seems to outdo herself with every book she writes. Few authors have that talent, but it truly seems that with each new subject and set of characters, she takes off with this incredible story that just slays you and leaves you emotionally spent at the end of the book. As Dust Dances is about a young lead singer of a band , Skylar, whose band makes it big at a very young ag...
