Review of Take the Lead by Alexis Daria (ebook)


Take the Lead by Alexis Daria


From Alexis Daria, author of the critically acclaimed, international bestseller You Had Me at Hola, comes a fun, sexy romance set against a reality dance show.

Gina Morales wants to make it big. In her four seasons on The Dance Off, she’s never even made it to the finals. But her latest partner, the sexy star of an Alaskan wilderness show, could be her chance. Who knew the strong, silent, survivalist-type had moves like that? She thinks Stone Nielson is her ticket to win it all—until her producer makes it clear they’re being set up for a showmance.

Joining a celebrity dance competition is the last thing Stone wants. However, he’ll endure anything to help his family, even as he fears revealing their secrets. While the fast pace of Los Angeles makes him long for the peace and privacy of home, he can’t hide his growing attraction for his dance partner. Neither wants to fake a romance for the cameras, but the explosive chemistry that flares between them is undeniable.

As Stone and Gina heat up the dance floor, the tabloids catch on to their developing romance. With the spotlight threatening to ruin everything, will they choose fame and fortune, or let love take the lead?




I enjoyed this one, but not as much as You Had Me At Hola.

It was easy to like both Stone and Gina. Gina seemed like the type of person you want to be around all the time. I loved how she made Stone open up and be himself more. The dance show setting was a lot of fun and I enjoyed reading about all the different types of dances. I could definitely picture some of them while reading. There were some steamy sex scenes, but nothing over the top. I also really adored Gina’s best friend. I liked that the women in the book were not dependant on men and showed that they didn’t need them to be successful. But I also liked how Gina started to fall for Stone and couldn’t stop no matter how scared she was. Her father left after her mother gave up her singing career and Gina never wants that to happen.

I gave this book 4 stars.
