The name of the book comes obviously from dance. This is NOT a book about dance, but a book about a dancer. Emory uses dance to relax and whenever she gets troubled she dances, saying out loud “First position, breathe” it calms her, lets her think, and is an escape.
yelp yelp In the end I am a little bit torn and for the sake of the plot I cant even tell you why. ggrrr I like Emory and her BFF room mate Wesley. The author creates two very likable pals who are there for each other with an unbreakable bond. So the story is like this: Emory and Mason break up, he marries her nemesis, well I hate Alexis as I am sure most will. Mason is recovering from an injury and runs into Emory for the first time since he left 6 years prior. He has become a pro football player and is currently healing and searching for a new contract.
The author creates a love story for these two. Sadly there are secrets, family’s hurt by divorce, and hope. I think it would have been epic had some edits been made. I wanted this black cloud to be explored and weighed against the other person’s secrets. Sounds confusing, sorry! I will put it this way two people have secrets and one has a big one and the other has a few little ones. So I wanted to know more about the feeling surrounding the secrets.
The author also creates Steven and Olivia who are Mason’s brother and pregnant sister in-law too. He is a lawyer and he is negotiating everything for Mason. I feel bad for him having the burden of his brothers contracts and injury lay at his feet. There are a lot of light comedy moments about pregnancy that I find endearing. Katherine who is the mother in-law from hell makes a few appearances. Gosh I hated her too.
I will add it was a little confusing at times and things were said for example: blank-for sake of the plot- peeps her head out of the bathroom and asks for a pair of panties ??? Who does that? It seemed to me there were a few things that were misplaced. I think in my opinion things were added to appeal to more people.
Lastly I like the no sex thing the author adds. I agree that Mason is married and until he is not there shouldn’t be sex but it was a little scattered for me in this subject matter. I think if you make a choice to wait then you don’t prance naked in front of a man. Not that that happened here I am just saying. Overall a good book with some good base characters
