| Abby chapter 13 . 1/4/2006
This was good, I'm glad she broke up with Ben. They just weren't right, though I do feel a little bit bad for him. I'm sorry I haven't reviewed in a while, but it's been kinda hectic, and during break I didn't have access to the Internet. But this was worth the wait. Keep up the good work, UPDATE SOON!

Yay! she broke up with him! finaly!
| Rose Jameson chapter 13 . 1/4/2006
Whoa New chapter! I kinda liked Ben, But I would have done the same thing, that Jamie did. I couldnt stand having all that drama dealing with a BF that I bearly knew. Loved the chapter, cant wait to read more

Go Jamie! I think she handled that situation pretty well. Now, she just has to let Dave know of her feelings and what not and then everything will be peachy! Of course, I know it won't be that easy.

Good, she finally got rid of him. I never liked him from the start, British accents are a bad reason to like somebody. Dave is so much better for her.

A great chapter! It's good to read more of your story. I hope your niece's surgery went ok.
Can't wait to read more!

this chapter was really good because you deepened the conflict between Ben and Dave, and hence Jamie's with herself. nice bit of suspense with the thing about Mickey. is Ben still in school? I'm kind of confused about his age, since Jamie hadn't seen him there.
after the suspense and tension in the first scenes of the chapter, it was good to have Jamie and Jack have a little comic relief, which also developed Jack's character more. Great job, looking forward to more!

| HadToBeMe chapter 12 . 12/29/2005
YAY! an update FINALLY! I hope your neice comes out of everything alright...I know from experience...surgery sucks. The chapter was great...I hope Jamie listens to Dave and stays away from Ben before he really hurts her though. As soon as I start writing again, I'll post something and let you be one of the first to know :p

YAY! Irish dance story...I'm a ballerina and fellow Irish dancer, just competed at my first Oireachtas, so just had to comment...
First of all, where do you live? East coast? And how long did you dancing for? Irish dance is like a cult, I swear. There are children being raised on this stuff...
You tie your ghillies around your ankles? How odd! Do a lot of people do that where you live? I live on west coast, and here pretty much everyone in the higher levels ties them by wrapping around their arches, bow on top.
Only two months to prepare for Oireachtas? I pity your character. But I suppose I also envy her, because she can still have popcorn two months before Oireachtas...Hot Chocolat three weeks before...Lucky ducky, junk food that close...
Ah! Traditional set? Don't you mean non trad set? Downfall of Paris is a hard set though, our school's was complete evil this year...And she stayed up until two before Oireachtas? Crazy girl...

Hey, I wanted to tell u that ur story is absolutely AMAZING )I read it for an hour straight and it's me hooked. You have a great writing style and the combination of Drama and Romance is just perfect. please update soon! )

Beautiful. I love this, as I'm a dancer too. (I do ballet, highland, and ballroom and a teensy bit of belly) Ben does appear to be a very.. suspicious character.. I love your main character, though I've never been at a point in my life where I'm afraid? to be loved and love. I love her best friend, he seems to be a sweetie. Keep up the great work!
| Silver-Dragon5 chapter 11 . 12/8/2005
This is a great story. I hope that Ben hasn't got himself into anything too deep, though I hope that she admits her feelings for Dave. I like how you write about Jaime's love of dance, and I can see that some of it is purely you. lol. But that's good. You have to have some connection with your characters cause if you don't love them, who else will?
Once again, a beautiful story you have here. I'm sorry to hear about your family problems, too. I don't know if you want that sympathy, but I do want you to know that you shouldn't feel bad about not updating quickly. Everyone has problems and they are entitled to concentrate on themselves.

This is a really good story. The set up is perfect, and you not only put Romance in it, you add alot of drama. Good job at writing in First person. To me, it's the hardest POV to write in. Unless I'm writing a peom...
Again, good job! r/r my works too.
Hope you update soon.
