Judy Lynn Hubbard does a phenomenal job on Our First Dance. The chemistry between Natasha and Damien was explosive. Natasha Carter was a prima ballerina and Damien Johnson was producing his own ballet. Damien sought Natasha out for an audition in his upcoming production after seeing her perform a year or two prior. While they try to fight their attraction to each other they quickly learn that you cannot fight what is in your heart. I like that Damien thought he was in control but in reality Nata ...more
LOVED it...the deeply INTENSE passion between Natasha and Damien keeps me turning the enjoyed their STRUGGLE to control their INSTANT attraction...and LOVED the tight bond they share w/their families...and I'm so looking forward to reading about the possible love connection between Marcy and Nathan...Ms. Hubbard is FAST becoming one of my favorite authors.

Judy Hubbard's "Our First Dance" is an amazing book. You could see the instant connection between Natasha and Damien. I really enjoyed every minute of this book. Looking forward to the reading Marcy and Nathan's story and more from this awesome author. I highly recommend this book.
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 ...more
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 burn

I loved this book. It was a great exploration of the art of ballet and the love story was top notch! You are totally engrossed in the lives of Damian and Natasha. I never wanted to put this book down! I've always had a love for the arts, and this author descriptions and detail just makes you believe that you are there in the theater, in the front row watching the art take place.

When it comes to the love story between Damian and Natasha, you have another front row seat to something equally as bea
Damien Johnson and Natasha Carter meet and sparks fly.

This book tells the story of Natasha who accepted the main role as the prima donna for Damien's play " Romeo and Juliet". From the time that Damien saw here, he has been attracted to her. However, his policy of no romance between casts in his play has become a hindrance for both of them when they cannot seems to let go of the attraction for each other. What started off as an affair, its become very complicated later part of the story where both families try their best to match them up.

Overall, t
Our First Dance is a wonderful love story about a ballerina named Natasha and her boss Damien. They both know that being together is not a good idea because Damien is Natasha's boss but the chemistry is so strong between the two they are fighting a loosing battle. Ms. Judy Hubbard told a great story about love and romance. I think this is going to be a start to a series because of the other characters introduced in this story deserve a book of their own. This is the second book from this very ta ...more
Quick vacation read. :)
I enjoyed it more than the second book.
This is the second novel by Ms. Hubbard and I really enjoyed it. Natasha is a ballerina that tries out for Juliet in Damien’s production and the moment that they meet you can see the attraction and chemistry between the both of them. Even though Damien is against mixing business and pleasure is he cannot fight the attraction but things from his past are obstacles in their relationship. I thought this was a great love story and looking forward to seeing what will happen with their siblings.
This is my first read from this author, and it was a good introduction to her work. I really enjoyed the ballet back drop. It is not one that is written about often, so it was nice to read a different type of story line for a change. Natasha and Damien has a sweet romance. They were clearly attracted to each other from the start, and had a nice courtship. I look forward to reading more of this authors work.

Recommends it for: avid romance readers.
Lies, jealousy, and an accident give Damien Johnson a new look on life. Ballerina Natasha Carter crosses his path and the lines between right and wrong, happiness and unhappiness, fear and apprehension all begin to come together. Is there a way out; read Our First Dance to see what you think.
I was so in love with this book from beginning to end. I so thought like Natasha when she was faced in telling him about the pregnancy. I am si happy everything turned out but wonder if the other ls in the troupe would respond to the marriage and baby.
sweet love story!!! it started a little slow for me but once I got settle in for the right it went smoothly!!! I can't wait to check out another of her books!!
