Praise for TAKE THE LEAD
This is a case of extreme opposites attracting: Gina is a hilarious city girl, and Stone is a stoic mountain man with a secret. Together, they are outrageously sexy. Filled with a collection of intriguing characters, this is a light, vibrantly written romance from an author who clearly adores the world she’s developed — and the characters she’s matched.
—Sarah MacLean, New York Times bestselling author, Washington Post
[Gina and Stone’s] romance is believable, emotional, and hot—everything you want from a story about dance partners!
—Jasmine Guillory, author of The Wedding Date, Oprah Magazine
Take the Lead is everything I look for in a romance—lovable and layered characters, sizzling chemistry, and a charming and authentic voice. I loved it!
—Sonali Dev, author of A Distant Heart
Daria believably crafts the behind-the-scenes world of a dance competition reality show, nailing the mercenary producers and the contestants and professional dancers who are their pawns… Whether or not you’re a fan of dance competition television, Daria’s story of this behind-the-scenes romance is a perfect ten.
Do not miss Take the Lead by Alexis Daria… [Stone and Gina’s] sexy secret romance is tested not just by the crazy world of reality TV, but also by that classic obstacle to HEA — reality.
—Maya Rodale, USA Today bestselling author, NPR
