Look up the word “nerd” and you’ll find Lily Bailey’s picture. She’s got one goal: first stop valedictorian, next stop Harvard. Until a stint in the hospital from too much stress lands her in the last place a klutz like her ever expected to be: salsa dance lessons.
Look up the word “popular” and you’ll find Stone Torres’s picture. His life seems perfect—star of the football team, small-town hero, lots of friends. But his family is struggling to make ends meet, so if pitching in at his mom’s dance studio helps, he’ll do it.
When Lily’s dad offers Stone extra cash to volunteer as Lily’s permanent dance partner, he can’t refuse. But with each dip and turn, each moment her hand is in his, his side job starts to feel all too real. Lily shows Stone he’s more than his impressive football stats, and he introduces her to a world outside of studying. But with the lines blurred, can their relationship survive the secret he’s been hiding?
Entangled Teen books are always like candy; sweet and addicting. I can never just read one chapter, I always have to sit down and read a handful.
Eyes on Me by Rachel Harris was no different. It was a dancing book, and I always like books that have dancing in it. This book reminded me a little of Step Up 2 because there was one salsa dancing scene in it and it was one of my favorite scenes.
Another reason why I liked this book because there was the nerd befriends the popular jock trope in it and I forgot how much I love those. I LOVED how One Tree Hill was mentioned in it since I am a Naley shipper. And the book love in it was PERFECT.
Overall, Eyes on Me was a five star read. I’d recommend this book to be read during the summer time because it just has those warm happy vibes.
Thank you Netgalley for giving me the chance to read and review this! This has no impact on my thoughts, my thoughts are my own.
