Review of 'First position' by Melissa Brayden.

Review of ‘First position’ by Melissa Brayden.

Wow… another Melissa Brayden’s masterpiece. She’s by far my favourite lesbian romance author… and by far I mean miles away from the rest. Ok, now that we’ve got established my not-so -subtle partiality, I have to add that this book is one of my favourites from this author along with ‘Kiss the girl’. For me it has the right amount of wit, romance, sex and angst. The combination of all these ingredients make an incredible read.


What else? The main characters have perfect chemistry, the secondary characters add depth to the story and the appearances of characters from previous books (including my favourites Jess and Brooklyn) is a nice bonus. Ms. Brayden knows how to take the reader into different worlds (in this case, classical ballet) with the talent of a cinematographer. That’s why I think many of her books could make very good movies. All in all, if you are looking for lesbian romance and are a bit tired of the butch-femme dynamic of damisel in distress with her heroine in shinning armour, this book is right for you. I cannot recommend it more but then, be warned that I’m a bit biased. 5+ stars.

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
