  • Fun and Sexy!

    Ballroom dancing, reality shows, a sexy, talented Latina dancer, a handsome, rugged, Alaskan outdoorsman, a secret or two... put them all together, shake 'em up and what do you get? A fun, sexy romance that owes everything to Dancing with the Stars. :) Gina is a ballroom dancer, one of the best of the best. She refuses to play the showmance games her producers propose with her new partner, Stone. Drop dead, gorgeous, reality star Stone. The only problem is, as they get to know each other, they start to like each other and of course there's no denying the sexy sparks that flare between them. Take the Lead is sexy and fun, especially for fans of Dancing with the Stars. They'll recognise some familiar.... um... types, shall we say. I got a special kick of out Kevin, the golden boy of the show who gets the best partners and seems to win more than his fair share of the competitions. Oh, does THAT sound familiar! *LOL* There's also a J-Lo type secondary character. Both of the lead characters have their flaws and their obstacles to overcome. Gina doesn't want fall into the stereotypical characterisation of Latina women in entertainment, nor to present a questionable role model for her nieces. Stone needs to protect his family with well-meaning lies. Reality TV is a bitch. *LOL* The development of the romance may seem a little rushed, but you know.. I kept thinking of Kym and Robert on DWTS and how we watched them fall in love on the show, so it all works for me. The sex was steamy and the banter fun. Are you a fan of DWTS and a romance reader? Read this book. You'll have fun.

  • Fantastic!

    This was absolutely amazing and I read it in one sitting! I’m a sucker for music/dance themed books and this did not let me down. I loved both Gina and Stone as individual characters and as a couple. I truly appreciated how emotional Stone and Gina’s connection was and how much Alexis Daria was tugging at my heart strings in the last quarter of the book. I truly felt how deep their relationship had gotten and how hard it was for them to go through the ups and downs the show put them through. The intimacy outside the bedroom was really well written! You could tell these two had more than just lust because they shared so many small moments of holding hands, little touches, leaning on each other for support, etc. Really beautiful and well done. That being said, holy cow, these two were on fire in the bedroom! Stone was probably my favorite thing about this book; he was such a perfect hero! He might be big and muscular, but he’s also a bit of a beta hero. I love this because I’m all for betas but it was also fun to watch as he grew confident in his dancing and really embraced taking the lead when needed. He was a perfect blend of sweet and strong while also being completely drool worthy. I adored his more romantic side that really came out as he got comfortable with dancing and with Gina. I love a strong and dedicated heroine so Gina was a joy to read. I loved her passion for dancing, her fire to succeed, and her determination to be the best version of herself without compromising on her self respect. This does lead her to hold onto her pride and fear a little too tightly, but it also makes her a heroine I can really respect. Only a small thing: several months go by in the book, but I barely noticed the passage of time. We know each of the show’s episodes has a week of rehearsal, so the amount of time passing is there, it just felt very subtle because there were no external clues that usually get thrown in to show time. This might have more to do with me reading it all at once than anything the author did or didn’t do.

    Thanks for your feedback!
