    In the UK we call it Strictly Come Dancing, across the pond it’s Dancing With the Stars, but whatever name it goes by, if there’s glitter, sequins, fleckerls, foxtrots and fake tan involved I. AM. THERE. So a romance centralising around all this? No stranger to reality TV, gorgeous 6’7 bearded Alaskan wilderness star, Stone Nielson is more at home chopping wood than shimmying his hips. But when he’s partnered with LA based pro dancer, Gina Morales on The Dance Off, it’s not long before [...]

    ***4 Stars***Loved this debut! Puerto Rican professional dancer + Mountain man reality star + dance competition = One happy reader!! ♥ ♥ "You light me up.

She wants to dance, sing, and act. H [...]

    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestThis is one of those books that has received a lot of advanced praise - Sarah MacLean called it one of the best romance novels of 2017 - and yet, there's hardly any reviews for it on . What the heck, my readers? What the heck?WHY HAVE NONE OF MY FRIENDS READ THIS YET?? TAKE THE LEAD is a good book for many reasons. It's set on a Dancing with the Stars-type reality TV show. Gina is a Puerto Rican dancer who has dreamed of and prepared for "making i [...]

    If you’re a fan of Dancing with the Stars or other reality TV show dance competitions you are definitely going to want to pick up Take the Lead, a lively, energetic and sexy contemporary romance by début author Alexis Daria. And if you’ve never watched one of these competitions before, after reading this story you’ll likely want to add it to your viewing schedule. The plot is fresh and original, giving the reader almost a voyeuristic behind the scenes look at what makes or breaks the danc [...]

    A wonderful debut. I worked in reality TV for a long time and Daria nailed the ins and outs of working on a show like Dancing With The Stars. Looking forward to the next installment.

    I had mixed feelings about this book.At the beginning, I kept thinking that I need more than just physical attraction for romance to work for me. I even contemplated DNFing this book. But later on, story took the right turn and I could do nothing else but sit back and enjoy the sizzling chemistry between main duo. I didn't even mind (that much) occasional clichés and cheesiness that accompanied the story. Moreover, I found setting very interesting. I am not a fan of real Dance with the Stars sh [...]

    A copy was provided by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewI loved this! It was completely gripping; I stayed up way too late last night because I could not put it down. I loved these characters so much, fell hard for them both, and particularly for Gina. I was rooting for them all the way, as a couple, as dance partners. I wanted them to get a happy ending. The obstacles and conflict felt so right, they unfolded in a beautiful way. The heroine is Puerto Rican, and I [...]

    So here's the thing. I don't like Dancing With The Stars.I really don't care for it. At. All.And yet I picked this book.And furthermore I'M LOVING IT.I picked it up because that hooker, Geri from Dirty Girl Romance Book Blog was reading book 2 ('Dance With Me' releases December 12th - amzn/2BGn2nC) and completely sold me on the idea of a romance between DWTS co-stars.I mean, although not a fan of the show, I always wondered about dancers acting so in tune and showing off scorching chemistry on t [...]

    I really enjoyed reading this novel because I love dance competitions, so this book really won me over. I also enjoyed the Puerto Rican culture that’s woven into the story since Gina is a Puerto Rican main character whose ethnicity and culture is very important to her. Her drive to break stereotypes placed on Latinas was like a breath of fresh air to me because I related so hard to her character and everything she stood for which was hard work, perseverance, and dedication. Stone was also an a [...]

    Listen. Take the Lead by Alexis Daria is perfect. PER.FECT. I loved this book. I want to take this book out behind the high school and make out with it. This book was goddamn good that after I finished reading it, I spent the rest of the day watching Strictly Ballroom, the Step Up movies, and Magic Mike. This book made me want to sign up for dance lessons----and I am a white girl with NO rhythm! I clap on the wrong beat and my husband jokes I need a walking helmet! I’d sooner give up romance a [...]

    Hace tanto que no me emocionaba con un libro, ME ENCANTÓ. Y bueno che, la vida del lector es así, leerse 10 libros pedorros para que con toda la furia te enamores de 2. Y TENEMOS UN GANADOR!!!!!!!*Cuando lo empecé, pensé "seguro que él héroe va a ser re forro con la prota porque es una chica de ciudad". ME EQUIVOQUE.*"No me va a gustar que sea narrado por él porque odio cuando hacen eso" (siento que le quitan misterio a la historia cuando ellos son los narradores). ME EQUIVOQUE. He wanted [...]

    Mind-blowing, heart-wrenching, tear-jerker. Okay, I exaggerate. We're talking about a book on reality TV. Actually, its 2 reality TV shows. Where things are exaggerated, faked, blown totally out of proportion for the sake of ratings.Gina, a born dancer waiting for her big break is in danger of losing her current shot to fame by not pandering to what the tv exec wanted by playing up the stereotypes. She especially do not need an attraction to someone who is going to be a partner whom the producer [...]

    Of all the romance novels I've read, this one best qualifies for the title "beach read," and I don't mean that in a bad way. It's a passionate romance between two contestants on a dance competition reality show. Stone Nielsen is an improbably tall (see note below) star of an Alaskan outdoorsy reality show. Gina Morales a Puerto Rican professional dancer who will be his partner and dance teacher for his guest stint on The Dance Off.If you're looking for something lightweight and entertaining, thi [...]

    Also on Romances Ever After.Take the Lead follows Gina and Stone, two reality TV stars, as they compete with the other contenders in The Dance Off, a network-TV dance competition. Both have different reasons of joining; Gina is in it to finally win it, since it’s already her fifth season, and Stone sees the prize money as a chance to alleviate his family’s financial troubles. However, Gina realizes immediately after meeting Stone that they’re being set up for the show’s romance bait, som [...]

    A NA with old-ish characters and story development, an actual plot and hot scenes that do not make you cringe?? Maybe this book feels better than it actually is after the horror that was 2017 NA-speaking, but I enjoyed this a lot! It still was a bit cheesy towards the end and had many of the things I've come to exasperatedly enjoy in a NA (too big, never been in love before, blah blah) but all in all it is very recommendable, and I've already added book 2 to my wishlist :)Maybe I should start wa [...]

    4.5 starsI've never watched Dancing with the Stars but after reading this book I have real admiration for the dancers on that show!This book was so much fun! It's fun, fresh, and very steamy I couldn't stop reading from the moment I started to read. Add in the Latinx rep and I was sold on this from the get-go.I loved Gina and Stone and I thought they had some really great chemistry. Stone is honestly so perfect I loved how much he cared for Gina and how he broke down her walls. I relate to Gina [...]

    Thank you so much Coral for reviewing this book, if it wasn't for you I would not have read this. First of all a brilliant premise, a dance reality TV show. Second I loved the heroine, she was ambitious and passionate about dancing and didn't want to take shortcuts or do something that would compromise her image in front of her family even if it would ease her way. I liked that about her, even if I felt she was worrying way too much about it later.I loved the hero too, he was a saint to give up [...]

    I tend to stay away from reality tv in general and the same for reading and sub-genres in CR. The only reality TV I watch is Dancing With the Stars, so when I read the concept of this duology, I was hooked. I'm happy to say that Take the Lead was quite an enjoyable read. Daria did a great job of building a relationship and great chemistry between Gina and the DELICIOUS Stone. I loved the behind the scenes details of training each week for the show, the creation of choreography and the politics o [...]

    Despite eye rolling a little bit through the conflict near the end of the book, this was a really good debut novel. I also have questions about the hero turning into a male model, but I can't really rule anything out these days. This was fun. I'm going to read book two.

    A thoroughly entertaining and engrossing debut, Take the Lead uses the structure of a television dance competition to show the love story between a professional dancer and a reluctant reality show star.I enjoyed the absolute hell out of this book. The main couple stood out as real and relatable against the artificiality of the reality show backdrop. The secondary characters were also charming and endearing. A review of a romance often references whether a reader was "rooting" for the main couple [...]

    Pro dancer Gina Morales is on her way to Alaska to meet her celebrity partner for season 14 of the Dance Off. She wish for a winter Olympian but she's team up with Stone Nielson, star of Living Wild, a reality show about a big family living off-the-grid in Alaska. Gina and Stone both know the "reality" of the TV world. Gina is less than please to realize that they want to set them up as the "show-mance" of this season. She have a strong professional ethic about not sleeping with her partners and [...]

    I received an advance copy of this book from NetGalley. My thoughts have not been influenced in any way. This was a really fun contemporary romance. I've never watched a celebrity dance show, so I don't know how realistic that part was, but I really enjoyed the characters and the story. The author did a great job of connecting the reader with the characters before there were any steamy scenes, which you don't see enough of in contemporary romances. I look forward to the next book in this series. [...]

    "City girl, this is way beyond country living,” he drawled. “This is living wild.”Alexis Daria's Take the Lead has such an original storyline that I was salivating for this book like nobody's business. It meshes a Puerto Rican dancer, a gruff Alaskan survivalist, and a Dancing with the Stars like competition. How fun this book was!Stone doesn't want to be on a dancing show, but because of his family he finds himself flying down to LA and hobnobbing with a different flavor of reality TV. Bu [...]

    Take the Lead is a fantastic romance that takes an ambitious heroine who has her eyes set on the win and a man forced by his circumstances to be the Quiet One. Together, Gina and Stone discover that they can have more than what they had eyes one. Happiness and success can coexist with a partner who’d uplift you (literally and figuratively) and support you. Sizzling romance aside, these two and the rest of the cast provide a beautiful picture of a piece of society that is rich with culture and [...]

    Take the Lead by Alexis Daria a leading five-star read. This book was so good, I was dancing round the room and having a jig at work, I have two left feet so it wasn’t pretty but I couldn’t help myself. If you have any inclination to dancing you need this book in your life, if you enjoy romance or reality TV you also need this book in your life. The writing was so well put together, I need to go see what else this author wrote and get reading. The chemistry between the main character is so h [...]

    celebrityreaders.wordpress3.5 stars -- I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.There were a few things that stood out and made this a must request book for me, and it was those things that I enjoyed the most in this story.First, I'm a sucker for a book about dancing.  I'm really not a very good dancer myself (though I still try, I have, like, ZERO grace), so I ALWAYS admire dancers of all types, from ballet to ballroom and beyond.  And it [...]

    Soooooo this book danced its way into my heart (i couldn't help myself ok? lol) I have to thank twitter for cluing me into this wonderful book! It wasn't on my radar til recently and when i requested it on Netgalley I didn't think I'd get approved but yayyyy!Listen I love reality TV. Granted, I haven't watched much Dancing With The Stars, was more an America's Best Dance Crew watcher buuut I love dance movies and I have seen some episodes of DWTS and this book felt sooo authentic in it's portray [...]

    TL;DR: SEXY DANCING WITH THE STARS-ESQUE ROMANCE BY #OWNVOICES AUTHOR***THE STORY:I want to start by saying that I loved this story. It was something I’d heard some buzz about and decided to read because of that. I was so happy that I did! Reality TV isn’t really something I enjoy, but this book really doesn’t require much investment into that, as the settings and characters are so richly developed.Gina Morales is on her third season of The Dance Off as a professional dancer, and she’s g [...]
