My Thoughts 

I was disappointed that even up to 96%, there was still no real, heartfelt communication between the MC's. I prefer a stronger emotional connection in a romance than Gina and Stone had; what the two shared seemed more physical, void of a stronger connection. 

The drama in this one went on way too long for me and the obstacles between the two also went on for far too long. This novel unfortunately didn't work well for me but I will read more of the author’s work.  

Thank you to St. Martin's Griffin  and NetGalley for the DRC.


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?
