A man dances the same way he fucks. His stamina, his rhythm, the slow grind of his hips. Some people are born to it, others learn through years of careful study.
And dancers? We do it best of all.
The moment I saw her, I knew. Her innocence is intoxicating. My lust is fierce. Primal. To watch her dance is to know the torment of true temptation.
She will be mine.

what i thought

Okay, first of all let me say, this book was FANTASTIC!

Annalise is a ballet dancer, she has always been one. Her mom was one also a very good dancer. Her mom has incredibly high expectations for Annalise. She is to go to Rome where she will audition for one of the biggest solos in her ballet career. The girls are on a tight schedule and don’t really get to spend time enjoying Rome and seeing all the sights. That is until she hears music playing and stumbles upon a group of dancers dancing a way she didn’t think was possible. She immediately notices Raphael, a blue eyed gorgeous guy.

Raphael is a Latin ballroom/contemporary dancer that is currently living in Rome. He, also like Annalise was burdened by the expectations of his parents. Only, he was to become a lawyer. He knew his passion was dance and not business, so he packed his things and moved to Rome pursuing something he loves. But then he notices Annalise standing in the crowd while he’s performing and is dying to get to know her.

WOW guys, I was completely blown away by this book! I REALLY enjoyed this book! I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that deals with dance before.. But wow oh wow. Especially something as steamy and seductive as this!

“A woman dances the same way she fucks. Soft and self-conscious; lithe and graceful. Or wild. Passionate. Unleashed…. And dancers? We fuck best of all.” — First Position, Melody Grace

I’ve always loved dancing, but was never good at it. Seriously, if my life depended on being able to dance gracefully and not looking completely dumb doing so, I’d probably die… I’m that bad. Melody Grace’s writing style is very unique and definitely an amazing new adult author! Annalise and Raphael have only kissed and wow, can she write a steamy scene JUST FOR KISSING!!!

I loved the scenes between Annalise and Raphael, but that ending was frustrating and I need more! I’m wondering what is going to happen next! As the reader, I was immediately drawn into the story and all the sights of Rome. I’ve always wanted to travel outside the United States, and especially somewhere like Rome! So having this set in Rome, made it feel like I was there.
