This is a adorable and wonderfully engaging YA book! The characters are realistic, The problems in the story enough to keep it interesting and moving forward, but not overwhelming for the reader. The dialogue and narrative are well written and flow quickly, and you’re done reading before you even realize it. The story is super sweet, the HEA is smile worthy. All in all, well worth it for any YA romance fan.

Super cute and worth the read! I’m so glad I read this book because it was a super cute and fun read! Eyes on Me follows Lily, who is forced into dance lessons by her father with the intent of having a stress free activity after she ends up in the hospital due to school-related stress. In order to motivate Lily to keep going to lessons, her father ends up enlisting Stone, the school quarterback and son of the dance school owner to be her permanent partner during lessons. As you can imagine, cuteness ensues from there. What I appreciated most about this book was how it managed to be adorable while also dealing with important topics. It deals really well with grief and anxiety and I appreciated how both of these issues were discussed in a thorough manner. Concerns about not knowing what to do with your life and maintaining an image were also really well explored in this book. I also adored the familial aspect in this book, and by that, I mean Stone’s adorable family. His parents and twin sister, Angela, were great to read about, and I feel like there’s a chance we can get Angela’s story in the future, which has me very excited. The story may have been a bit predictable, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Stone and Lily were really cute together and I enjoyed seeing how their relationship helped both of them develop and grow, albeit in different ways. I’d definitely recommend this one for anyone looking for a cute, fluffy read that has strong family dynamics and a whole lot of dancing.

Awe this is such a sweet romantic YA novel. I absolutely loved it. Lily and Stone are perfect for each other, two teens with a lot of problems trying to make the best of their lives. Lily suffers from an anxiety problem, all she worries about is college and has no interest in enjoying her high school life. Now her father is worried about her and decides to intervene. She must have fun and enjoy a little otherwise her anxiety can become a big problem. Her health comes first and college is not everything. So, it is decided that she takes dance classes every week at a place owned and run by the Torres family. Where Lily is a complete nerd, Stone Torres is her exact opposite. He is the most popular guy at their school and now he is her dance partner. Oddly enough he has an uncanny ability to calm her anxious heart. She never thought she could dance even a little but thanks to Stone she is doing fine. At least she is not a complete disaster on the dance floor. What started as simple dance partnership soon turned into so much more. Lily is someone he can easily fall in love with. The only problem is that she doesn't know the reason why he became her dance partner in the first place. He plans to tell her though. All in all, it is a great and fun read with lots of references of my favorite romantic movies. I quite enjoyed the story and loved the characters.

5 stars — Oh dude, this one just hit ALL the right buttons for me. Dancing? Check. Nerdy heroine? Check. Sweet hero? Check. SOLD! to Lenore!!! OK, seriously though. It took me a bit to warm up to Lily, but once I did…oh wow, I just thought she was sassy and hilarious and conflicted and I actually felt her stress. Initially I guess I didn’t quite understand her motivations for pushing herself so hard…but as the book went on, I connected with her more and more and started to see how she was using it as an escape, as something to hide behind. While I love connecting with a character right away, there’s also something amazing about an author who can take a character and make you grow to love and truly care for them. And it happened throughout the whole book, culminating in the climax with her Dad. They needed that breakdown and breakthrough, and I was so happy with how that progressed…it felt realistic. Stone. Oh Stone. He was SUCH a sweetheart, and he was another character that I just grew to love more and more as the book went on and I learned more about him. I loved that the author compared and contrasted these two seemingly opposites, and showed how they can both be dealing with loneliness and detachment, just in very different ways. My heart ached for all the pressure he was under, and how he saw his future. You don’t always get a glimpse at the depth of a character like Stone, and I was just loved getting to know him. Now obviously, he made mistakes…but I truly felt his guilt and regret, and I understood his reasons (even if I still thought he made the wrong choice). I ADORED his relationship with his family too. I love to see those close family bonds. He and his twin had something special. And then there’s Lily and Stone together. I loved the way their relationship progressed. It was sweet, and believable, and made me swoon and happy smile so many times. I loved that they developed crushes, and then got to know one another and connected on a deeper level. I really believed their feelings for one another. And the dancing! OMG the dancing. I love dancing, so I loved the connection they made there. I was worried that the conflict and climax would be too cliche, and while it did follow some of the usual lines, it did so in a ++ kind of way…like taking a trope and just making it better somehow. The showcase was just mwah perfection. SOOOOOO many great secondary characters in this one too. I loved the friendship between Sydney and Lily, and I LOVED the one that they both developed with Angéla. I loved the glimpses we got of Chase, even if I’d have liked to see more of his friendship with Stone. And I even appreciated Aidan, and how he tried to look out for Lily. I desperately hope that they ALL have books coming, because I want them desperately…PARTICULARLY Angéla and Chase. And of course I loved Stone’s Ma — she was spunky and sassy, and the perfect instructor. So yeah. As you can tell, this one just worked for me. I figured I was going to like this one given all the elements, but I connected with it even more than expected.

As you can tell by my rating of 5 stars, I adored this story! It was one I picked up and was immediately sucked into what was happening. The characters were extremely relatable, but also realistic. While we had the klutziness of our heroine like we see a lot of times, she was able to get over it when she wasn't spending so much time dwelling on it, and just worrying about what she was doing in the moment. And then there was our love interest, Stone, it was impossible not to adore him. Because even though he was sweet, and a perfect book boyfriend, he still was a teenage boy, and the way his character did things and reacted to situations was very realistic, in my opinion. The one issue that I knew would be hanging over Stone's head and probably cause our big final bit of drama, while obvious, the money her father had paid him, played out in a such way that made what normally seems like an overreaction in this type of situation to me, made perfect sense. I still adored the way he made his grand gesture, loved Stone's sister Angela's movie love for this. So much of this story had me smiling and happy, and I can't wait to share this book with my students, as well as other readers!

I really enjoyed that ballroom dancing was the background for this novel. It's something unique that I haven't seen in YA before but certainly helped bring on the swoons. Eyes on Me was a solid contemporary with two opposites finding each other and how they fit together. It was a predictable love story with a happily ever after and there's nothing wrong with that. I love seeing how authors take the predictable timeline of a romance and make it their own. The side characters in this one were amazing and I loved what they brought to our MCs story. This was also dual pov and I really enjoyed seeing this love story unfold from both of their points of view. Overall, Eyes on Me was a fun read with characterization being its strong suit. I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a bit of a twist on their classic romance. *I received a complimentary copy of this book from Entangled: Teen through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.*

Eyes on Me is a wonderfully cute read that will leave you with a huge smile on your face. Lily and "Stone" are so much fun and they couldn't be more different. She is the always serious nerdy type while he is the star athlete yet they seem to balance each other out perfectly. They get to know each other when Lily's father declares Saturdays as no study days following a stress related health scare and he signs Lily up for dance class at Stone's family studio. That is where much of the story takes place. It's a sweet romance that just makes your heart happy. I highly recommend it.

I applaud Rachel Harris’ EYES ON ME. Concerned about her stress level, Lily Bailey’s father enrolls her in dance classes in hopes of relaxing her. Unknown to her, he offers star Brighton High football player, Stone Torres, money for being her dance partner. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for young adults. EYES ON ME was an entertaining and believable read. The characters were well developed. I like Lily. She puts a lot of stress on herself to become valedictorian and to get accepted to Harvard. After winding up in the hospital, her father enrolls her in dance classes as an activity to get her mind off her classes. Stone is a good guy. Out of concern for the financial well-being of his mother’s dance studio, he accepts money from Lily’s dad to be Lily’s dance partner. As he gets to know Lily, he feels conflicted about taking the money. Cameron Montgomery is the perfect antagonist. She is Lily’s competition for valedictorian and Stone’s ex-girlfriend. I enjoyed the plot. There were good life lessons and moral issues. I have taken ballroom dance classes, so I respected that aspect of the story. Being Hungarian, I appreciated that Stone’s mom/dance instructor was born there. I like that the characters faced significant obstacles and grew as a result. This is the first book that I have read by Rachel Harris. I enjoyed her writing style. I would read books by her in the future. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Three words: dancing football player! That made me want to read this book, and I am so glad I did. Stone and Lily had me laughing, crying, and yelling at them throughout the whole book. The football player and the straight A student has always been one of my favorite story arcs. Add salsa dancing and a cast of supporting characters you just have to love, and there was no way this book can be less than 5 stars! I am hoping there are more books with these wonderful characters. I need to see what happens with Stone, Lily, Sydney, Angela, Chase, and Aidan. There is so much of the story to still be told about these characters.

Let’s dance... Salsa style . Eyes on me has a cliche predictable element but it’s executed perfectly. Lily is a hardworking nerd. In fact, she is overdoing her studying. Her dad and teachers are worried about her. She needs to relax and let loose. Her dad comes up with a rule to break her out of her mould. Saturdays will be a no study day. He signs her up for dance classes in the hope of her finding a new passion. Agoston “Stone” Torres is the popular school quarterback. His mother moved from Hungary to Texas before he was born. The family own a dance studio. Stone wants to concentrate on football and help his family get through a difficult patch. After his ex did a number on him he’s done with girls. Lily's dad offers Stone money to encourage her to stick with the dancing but Stone sees more than a dance partner in Lily. Stone is a twin and the start of Angela’s story is seen in this book. She’s in love with Stones best friend but it’s complicated. At a guess, her book will be the next in the series. Angela and Lily form a beautiful friendship in this book also. It has family spirit as well as a sweet romance. The book is based around the dancing. I really enjoyed this book. It’s fun, sweet and Stone is a great book boyfriend. 4.5 stars out of 5. *I received an arc in exchange for an honest review.
