About the Author

Prescott Lane is the author of First Position and her new release, Perfectly Broken. She is originally from Little Rock, Arkansas, and graduated from Centenary College with a degree in sociology. She went on to receive her MSW from Tulane University, after which she worked with developmentally delayed and disabled children. She married her college sweetheart, and they currently live in New Orleans with their two children and two crazy dogs. Prescott started writing at the age of five, and sold her first story about a talking turtle to her father for a quarter. She later turned to writing romance novels because there aren't enough happily ever afters in real life. Connect with Prescott Lane on facebook.com/PrescottLane1 and www.twitter.com/prescottlane1.

I'm usually a fan of second chance romances, but this one is really not worth the read. The author has a serious problem with POV shifts; to the point where it is hard to tell whose head you are suppose to be in. On top of that the story is boring, predictable and super cliched. Add in an over the top religious, anti-abortion plot, which quite frankly makes no sense given the language and sexual explicitness of the book and you get an uneven mess. I wish I hadn't wasted my time or money.

I received a copy of First Position for an honest review.

Emory Claire's fiancé Eric has finally had it with Emory putting off their wedding plans and finally has them on the right track to picking everything out but when push came to shove Emory couldn't do it, she couldn't marry a man she didn't love.

On the way home from her break up with Eric Emory walks into (literally) her ex college boyfriend. The one that years ago left her broken and unable to be with anyone else the one she was never able to get over, Mason.

Mason couldn't be happier to run into Emory since his life has taken a turn for the worst. Ever since he walked out on Emory all those years ago there hasn't been a day that's gone by that he hadn't regretted his decision. Now Mason wants to start a new life on a new NFL football team close to Emory. Even with divorce, his bad shoulder, and his mother looming over the relationship like a dark cloud Mason has hope that if Emory will take him back after everything he'd done his life will be worth it.

However, both Emory and Mason have demons in their pasts they had to face in order to be together, and while even when things seem to be going great Emory has the darkest secret of them all that almost causes the end in their relationship.

I honestly don't know what to say about First Position. I liked it but I also didn't. I liked the story overall I think Emory's and Masons love story was perfect with just the right amounts of harsh reality thrown in there to make it seem like a real relationship. I also liked the fact that the epilogue shared what happened after the final chapter. I loved Emory, Olivia, and Wesley the most, their characters were so amazing and completely made the story.

Disclaimer: I received this ebook as a courtesy of the author in exchange for an honest review.

Everyone knows that I'm a sucker for a pretty cover. I found this cover appealing then add to that the synopsis and it captured my attention. I've previously enjoyed stories where sports are mixed in with romance so at first glance this was a win-win. First Position is a story I've never read before, by that I mean that it's unique and original. Which is always a good thing. I also liked that the story seemed more realistic than the average romance. It absolutely doesn't follow the typical reunion romance formula and I appreciated that.

But did I like the story in itself?...Well, that's hard to say. I thought the story line had great potential, but I didn't like the characters very much. I also didn't care for some of the stereotypes going on, especially concerning the bartender in the hotel. I won't get into specifics, but not cool.

Is it bad when you think the leading man is a douche bag? I think so, and that's what I though about Mason. I felt that Emory could have done much better. Our "hero" is completely defective. He's insecure, jealous, short tempered, "let me check your phone" suspicious and has a controlling vibe toward Emory. I really wanted to like him, I wanted to root for them as a couple, but I found it difficult. This isn't a fairy tale. Not by a long shot.

Now on to Emory. Overall I liked her more than Mason. She's flawed. but aren't we all! I'm sure more than a few of us have been with guys that weren't the greatest, but yet we're "in love" with them. That's Emory. Lead by her soft heart and physical attraction, not her head. Emory did manage to hold off "rekindling" the physical relationship for a while, which was refreshing.

Mason and Emory were college sweethearts. They were in love and had planned their future together. She was going to be a ballet dancer and he was on his way to the NFL. Until Mason made a very stupid mistake that completely shattered Emory's heart and caused him to lose the only girl he ever loved. He went on to play in the NFL and ended up marrying someone else but she was nothing compared to Emory. She was someone to be by his side while he lived out his dream, she was basically his trophy wife. Their marriage was one of convenience rather than one of love. He was living the dream, playing in the NFL, but that didn't mean he forgot about Emory. His heart belonged to her and always would. It's now 6 years later and he has suffered an injury that could end his career and his marriage. He has been in talks with a few teams about playing for them next season. One night while in a bar at Charlotte he bumps into her, Emory Claire, the woman who has held his heart for all these years.

Emory loved Mason and 6 yrs ago her heart was destroyed when they broke up. After that she suffered an injury that ended her dancing career. She never got over Mason, but at the same time she hated him for what he did. She is now engaged to a wonderful doctor named Eric. Eric is wonderful, hot and successful, so what could be wrong? Emory loves Eric, just not in the same way she loved Mason. She knows marrying him will be the wrong decision and decides to break it off. After the break up she goes to a bar and that's when she literally bumps right into her past. Seeing Mason again after all these years brings back so many feelings. Mason lost Emory once and does not plan on losing her again. She is here, in his life again and he will do what it takes to keep her there.
