Cover reveals are not something I do often, but oh man, have you read Second Position by Katherine Locke? Guys, this book is so good – it’s the incredibly rare special, lyrical, beautiful, non-trope-y NA that deals with issues and character and love and romance and tension and PASSION in such a unique and different way, and the main characters, Aly and Zed, are such real people, I’m just ecstatic to know there’s more of them coming.

Zed and ballet are my two greatest loves.
But a tragic accident ripped them from Aly’s life six years ago and it took all her strength to get them back. She’s had a long road to recovery and has returned, dancing full-time for The District Ballet Company and carrying Zed’s child. But Aly is slipping. Each day becomes a fight to keep her career from crumbling under the weight of younger talent, the scrutiny of the public eye, and the limitations of her ever-changing body. A fight she fears she’s losing.
I’m scared Aly is broken to her core.
Zed recognizes signs, but he doesn’t know how to fix her. The accident left him with his own demons, and while he wants nothing more than to take care of Aly, it’s getting harder the further she spirals. When Aly’s life is threatened and Zed’s injuries prevent him from saving her, he’s never felt so useless, so afraid he is no longer capable of being the man Aly and their child needs.
With new life comes new hope. And with their fractured lives already hanging by a thread, Aly and Zed must discover if they have what it takes—both together and apart—to rebuild and carry on.
Book Two of the District Ballet Company
How gorgeous is that?? Especially with the other two covers?? HI, BEAUTIFULS.
Katherine Locke lives and writes in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she’s ruled by her feline overlords and her addiction to chai lattes. Her dayjobs always vary, but in the past she’s worked in nuclear weapons abolition activism, lead poisoning prevention and education, and food safety programs at a mushroom farm. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, and when she’s not reading, she’s tweeting about reading and writing. She secretly believes most books are fairytales in disguise. Her debut novel, SECOND POSITION, arrived April 2015 from Carina Press.
