    One thought on “First Position”

    1. Quenby gives a warm story about a ballet instructor named Therese and Luca a professional dancer. The tension between them draws you in as soon as Luca enters the scene. Sweet and perfect for the holidays.

    2. I loved this. Short but sweet, a perfect treat for a rainy afternoon. I never realized a tattooed Italian ballet star was what my bookshelf was missing, but lo! Quenby Olson has written an awesome one. Lovely short story. Very well done!

    3. Cute and easy read. The love story of the two main characters doesn't really make sense, but what can you do in 34 pages?

    4. Good short story that tells of Therese, a dance instructor who could have been famous if a health issue hadn't taken from the limelight and Luca Durante, a famous dancer who Therese danced with only once but who has reappeared into her life. I think this could be a five star book if it was a bit longer, but the author has captured the love of dance with the love of romance in a few short pages.

    5. First Position is my second time to read Ms. Olsen's work in less than a month, and I have to say I consider myself a budding fan. I loved Knotted (see my review here: readyourselftosleep.wordpress), so it's no surprise I enjoyed this as well.This fantastic little short story gives us a glimpse into a world most of us have seen only from the outside. Ballet, such a graceful and ephemeral art as observed from the audience, is in reality a tough, often bloody, business. Ms. Olson uses her personal [...]

    6. First Position is a perfect short romance for the Christmas season. With so few words to work with, developing a relationship that doesn’t feel forced isn’t easy, but Quenby Olson does a good job of it. With a touch of backstory and a strong dose of attraction, it works.Guessing at Therese and Luca’s history and his somewhat unexplained reappearance in her life creates enough tension to propel you through the story, which can be read in one sitting.Although anyone can enjoy this sweet roma [...]

    7. Enjoy a little escape from the chaos of the day with "First Position" by author Quenby Olson. I received this book in exchange for an honest review and I have to say, sometimes a really good novella is just what you need. It's the perfect length so you can read it from start to finish during your lunch hour or after the kids go to bed while indulging in some quiet time. Quenby Olson packs a delightful story, likable characters, and her awesome wit into just 34 pages. In "First Position" you'll m [...]

    8. Seven long years have gone by since Therese, a ballet dance teacher is greeted by Luca- a past ballet partner in her classroom. A gallant flirt, Luca paid her no attention years ago when she was a beginning dancer. Why is he here now and why does his presence affect her so? d does she like it? Vivid imagery. Beautifully written and truly romantic- this story is for those who believe true love can find you anywhere.

    9. This is a really great short story. As a busy mom I am finding that I need to read bite sized books. This is quick yet entertaining read. I highly recommend it.

    10. Nice love story! This is my first Quenby Olson book and I'm looking forward to reading more. I'd love to find out what happens next!

    11. Sweet!This is a sweet, short romance. Well written and entertaining. It took less than an hour to read but I enjoyed it.
