Hey, book buddies! Last week, I told you about this sizzling new serial by Melody Grace: DIRTY DANCING. I've had the pleasure to read FIRST POSITION (my opinion here) and here are my crazy thoughts about SECOND POSITION. Would you like to dance? ;o)
Dancing with the perfect partner is like the most exquisite climax of your life.
Can you feel it? The way our bodies rock together. My hands pinning you down, my mouth sliding over your hot, damp skin. Each hard thrust driving deep to that place you never dreamed possible. Every breathless cry hurtling you closer to the edge.
Beyond words. Beyond thought. Beyond reason.
I’d all but given up on perfection like that. Until I met her. Annalise.
Her body is pure motion; her spirit, a caged bird just waiting to be set free.
I will claim her. I will possess her.
I will teach her the most erotic dance of all.
*Part two of the sexy, seductive romance serial*
My opinion of Second Position
I was eagerly awaiting the continuation of the exciting story between Annalise and Raphael. Can you imagine the exhilaration of falling in love in Rome where the temptation is all-consuming but forbidden? Well, you don't have to imagine it if you read this beautiful serial.
I've fallen in love with it right away. It's got the sweet and feverish tone of first love, but also the powerful lure of a great passion. Every word is touched with emotion. I really enjoy the author's prose. She can make me feel the high risk of ballet dancing, the sacrifice of everything in the name of achievement, the struggle of emotion versus reason, and the mind-blowing sensuality of this couple.
After that cliffhanger in the first part, I had to know what was going to happen to Annalise. She's torn by the sheer pressure of performing to the best of her abilities, with an audition looming over her and threatening her future if she fails. On the other side of ambition, there is Raphael, all glorious male beauty, who also has dreams his own stash of loneliness. It's so good to see how well they fit, emotionally and physically.
I like everything, though there are a few favourite moments like the celebration at a traditional Italian restaurant that feels so cozy and full of joy, or their first intimate scene together. So intense!
This combination of dancing and love is so powerful. Both Annalise and Raphael are changing their lives from the moment they meet. It's risky, dangerous, but also freeing. I love that about the story.
This is one of my favourite serials so far because of the dancing theme, the beauty of the words and feelings, and so much passion and sensibility in it.
The cliffhanger is perfect. I have to read the third part no matter what!
Favourite quotes:I haven't fallen, I'm flying. Soaring on a rush like nothing I've ever felt before.I want our bodies to tell an epic story.
Haven't started the series yet? First Position is available for 99¢!
A man dances the same way he f*cks. 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.
