Emory faces life’s challenges at the one place that’s never failed her, the ballet barre. But even the barre can’t steady her when fate brings her face-to-face with her old college flame, Mason, who’s hoping to return to the NFL after a career-threatening injury. Before they can surrender to their sexual desires and find salvation in each other’s arms, they need to come to terms with their past. Mason must confront the demons that have set him on a path of self-destruction, while Emory must decide whether to keep her painful secrets locked away, or expose them and risk losing the love of her life. But nothing can prepare Mason for what Emory has kept hidden, or the possibility that he himself may be to blame for the very secrets she keeps – and why they continue to haunt her.
First Position is a book about getting a second chance. Emory, and Mason lost each other right before college graduation. Now Mason is in the same town as Emory for football, and he's getting a much needed divorce. He wants a second chance with her. He wants it to be a whole new start, so he ends up keeping secrets from her to protect what they have. During this time Emory isn't sure she can trust Mason again. She's also keeping a major secret from him. Even though she gets extremely upset with Mason for keeping her out of things, she still keeps her secret. They have to go through lots of trials and drama, but they have a beautiful romance and connection that didn't dim over the years. This is a beautiful love story, about second chances, First Position, and secrets. The only thing that really got on my nerves how much of a hypocrite Emery was. She had a major secret that she didn't tell Mason until she seriously had no choice but to tell him. But yet she got very upset with him when he wouldn't tell her things right after they got back together. Overall the book was good. I did enjoy reading it. And I thought it was a very sweet love story.
