First Position by Melody Grace

"A man dances the same way he f*#ks. 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 f*#k 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.
(Synopsis from Goodreads). 

My Thoughts:
I love Melody Grace's Beachwood Bay series. I binge read the series over a few days time, and couldn't get enough. Therefore I decided to check out some of her other works. The synopsis for First Position hooked me immediately, so I decided to pick it up. Unfortunately after reading it, I didn't enjoy it as much as I expected to.

Usually I love serials. They're one of my favorite things to read. That's why I was shocked when I didn't really like First Position. There were certain things that happened that were way too convenient to be anything other than a device to further the plot along. Otherwise, they made no sense why it happened at the time it did. It made everything seem so cliche. The book also was really boring. Nothing happened until the last ten percent or so. However, when something did happen I did like the direction it was taking. What happened at the last couple of pages really made me want more. It felt like instead of being a serial, this should have combined the first two books together, and been a full-length novel.

Even though I found First Position disappointing, I will continue with the series. Something major happened towards the end of the book, and I really want to see how Annalise overcomes it, or if she ends up giving up her hopes and dreams to do something different. I hope there is more excitement in the next book in the series, Second Position.

I give First Position: 2.5/5.

I received this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.
