4 STARS Our First Dance is an enjoyable story. Good see the dance in my mind. Thier were a lot of love scenes in the book that I skimmed over. Natasha Carter has been asked to audition for Johnson Ballet Company for the role of Juliet. She has audition for so many leads and never got them yet. She was not prepared to sleep for the parts. Or else because she is a African-American and her family is wealthy. Damien Johnson was in a wreck 10 years ago that stopped him from dancing. So he switched to directing and mangement of his own company. He has invited a view to audition for him for the leads. He had personly gone and seen them dance before he asked them. Damien thought Natasha was so beautiful and he could not take his eyes off her. Damien did not date ballerinas especially ones he hired. He had a bad experience 10 years before. Natasha is a hard worker and so badly she wants to dance the lead. She can't keep her eyes off him. After her solo he asked her to dance with him on stage and she did. He told her after that she was the best he had danced with. Natasha had not heard back yet if she got the part or not. She decided to order pizza with everything on it to settle her nerves. When she went to the door to pay the pizza delivery it was Damien at her door to tell she got the part. Then stayed and ate the pizza when it came. Natasha was an hour early to start so she could warm up and settle down. Damien wondered who left the light on in one of the practice rooms and saw Natasha thier hard at work. He was glad that she came early to get started and She even had her coach come who has been teaching her for twenty years. Everyone kept warning Damien and Natasha that it would be wrong to get involved. Even Natasha and Damien told each other and themselves. They ended up dating in secret denying any personal relationship between them. Thier secret relationship is steamy. They are able most of the time to keep thier relationship at work seperate from thier private time. Thier is a lot of dance background for the story that I liked. I also enjoyed all the minor characters. This is a quick read. I hope she does do another book with thier siblings in the future. I will be on the lookout for it. I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley. 06/26/2012 PUB Harlequin Imprint Kimani Romance

Life for a Black ballerina can be a difficult one. You have to constantly fight the perception of what a "ballerina's body" is and work twice as hard as others to prove your ability to do the job. After years of this, Natasha Carter finally has the opportunity for a lead role with the Johnson Ballet Company's production of Romeo and Juliet.
Damien Johnson has started his ballet company as a way to stay involved in the industry after an accident has ended his own dance career. Damien has been burned in the past by women using him for his position. Natasha doesn't want any distractions as she finally has a chance to be the prima ballerina that she always wanted to be. The attraction between them can threaten their professional relationship if they aren't careful.
Our First Dance was a sweet read that included lots of interesting background on ballet as a discipline and what it takes to be successful at it.

Judy Hubbard's second book, Our First Dance, is a joy. It is a good old fashioned love story, without all the contrived obstacles. It is about two people, Damien and Natasha who are each other's soul mate. It is a beautifully written story that you will not be able to put down, until the end. Bravo!!Was this review helpful?
