Woo Hoo!!! Another great book by Melody Grace. First Position and the Dirty Dancing series is a retelling of another book by Melody called With Every Heartbeat. I’ve already read With Every Heartbeat and loved it, so I was super excited when I found out she had revamped the book and turned it into a three part series. For those who have read With Every Heartbeat you’ll be excited to know we now get a few chapters from leading man Raphael’s pov and the story has gotten a lot steamier!! Even though I was already familiar with the story, I really enjoyed the new additions and the extra hotness.

First Position is about American ballet dancer Annalise Taylor. Annalise has come to Rome with a traveling ballet company, she is there to prove that she can be the best ballerina and also prove that to her superstar ballerina mother. What she wasn’t expecting was to meet local street dancer Raphael. From the moment their eyes meet there is an instant connection. Annalise isn’t only extremely attracted to him, but she is also intrigued by him. Raphael starts to open her eyes and mind to things Annalise never dreamed of.

Even though I already know how the story is going to play out I can’t wait for Second Position out November 12th. I was completely sucked in again to the story and the characters and wasn’t ready for it to be over yet. I really think this series has a little bit of something for everyone, blooming romance in the Italian city of Rome, passionate dance, humor and acceptance.

This is supposedly a new release, but I've read this book before, only it was titled "With Every Heartbeat (Cities of Love #1)" and was released November, 2013. So imagine my surprise when I start reading First Position (Dirty Dancing #1) and the story line and characters sound really familiar. I'm not sure why the author released this story again under a different title and series, but I'm very disappointed and have returned my copy!

I don’t really know how I feel about the serial aspect of this series. I don’t really like waiting, so of course I had to wait until all three parts were out before I could read them. This first part was so short and barely whet my appetite so I’m glad I could just jump right into part two immediately. I think if I had to wait, it might have altered my enjoyment of this first part.

I wouldn’t say this is my favorite by Melody Grace. It didn’t suck me in the way her Beachwood Bay series did. And I didn’t really feel as connected to Annalise and Raphael as I still feel to the characters in her other series. I was intrigued by the story and by the world of dance, which I only know from TV and movies. Of course the setting was amazing. Rome is one of my bucket list destinations and I almost felt like I was there in some of her descriptions.

This is a really quick read, but I do recommend having parts two and three on hand, or at the very least Internet access so you can download them, when you read this. I do enjoy Melody Grace’s writing and I look forward to reading more by her soon.

I received this for an honest review.. I have to say when I started reading this I really wasn't sure where it would go.. I have to say that this was an enjoyable novella and when I finished this book I could not wait to start the next one.. I fell in love with these characters and found myself wanting and needing more of this story... This is not a standalone.... SO ENJOYABLE!!!!

I know that I've read this story somewhere before and that's the reason I'm doing this review. I like this author and I enjoyed this first part in a series. Young characters - the h is a ballet dancer and the H is a modern dancer. They meet in Rome (love the setting) and begin an unlikely romance.

Review for Ramblings From This Chick. ramblingsfromthischick.blogspot.com

When I first heard that Melody Grace was publishing a new sexy romance serial, I couldn't wait to read it. But then I found out that this story was actually her previously published book, With Every Heartbeat, but she has since revised it and added some new material. While I was excited to see what else she had done with the story because I enjoyed it so much the first time, I will admit that I was a bit worried that this was going to be almost exactly the same thing as before. While I didn't notice a ton that was different, I did like the changes for the most part.

When Annalise heads to Rome to try and get a position as a prima ballerina, she knows that this could be her last chance. Her mother had always pushed her, and she needs to focus on her dancing now more than ever. But when her company is out sight seeing, she ends up meeting a handsome street dancer named Raphael. Raphael invites her to a party, and though she knows she should stay away she finds herself unable to turn him down. But when Annalise is almost discovered, things take a turn for the worst and she can't help but be reminded of everything that is at stake.

Annalise and Raphael are the same great characters that I fell in love with the first time around. But with the revamp, Melody Grace has made them sexier than ever. These two continued to steam up the pages with their off the charts chemistry. Raphael knows how to effortlessly move his body as well as how to get the best out of his partner, and I loved seeing him show Annalise how to unlock the passion inside of herself. These two might have met and started things quickly, but it was clear from the beginning that there was something special between them.
