Book Review: First Position (Dirty Dancing #1) by Melody Grace

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.


Melody Grace has done it once again! She has managed to completely knock my socks off.

“We don’t dance to be happy. We dance because we have to”

Many of you are probably familiar with a book that she put out last year called, With Every Heartbeat. Well, First Position is that same story, but now told in a serial format. Even though it is the same story, it has been completely revamped. Not only is the story a little sexier, but now we get some scenes from Raphael’s POV.

If you are not familiar with the story, I will fill you in a little. This story follows Annalise and Raphael. Annalise’s entire life has been focused on nothing but dance. She’s always feeling pressure to be the very best. One day, an opportunity presents itself and she finds herself sent off to Rome. According to her mom, it’s her final chance and she has to be the very best…..One of her first days in Rome, she finds herself exploring the city with her dance troupe. She is in complete awe of the city and slightly overwhelmed by it all. The last thing she expected to was find Raphael……

Raphael is a street dancer and completely captivates Annalise. She’s never seen dancing like that before. And then the moment their eyes connect, it’s all over…..

“His gaze crashes through me, setting every nerve and sense alight, as if I’m touchpaper and he’s a molten spark, dancing through my bloodstream.”

Raphael is desperate to know more about Annalise. There is just something about her…he just can’t let her get away. Their connection is instant and undeniable. Even though Raphael, is the last thing that Annalise was expecting and will be a complete distraction, she’s not ready to let him go either……

First Position is a very quick, sexy, exciting read. I enjoyed the angst and romance-two things that I love most about Melody Grace! Having already read With Every Heartbeat, I was excited to see all the changes made to the story. I was not disappointed one bit. I loved all the new additions and I really loved getting Raphael’s POV. For me, it added so much to the story. I can’t wait to read the next two installments!!
