From the gutter to the stars….
Dance is in my blood. It’s what keeps me sane, out of trouble. It used to keep them out of trouble, too – a group of boys I grew up with. Xeno, York, Zayn, and Dax.
We were a crew once. and we ruled the clubs. Separately we were insanely good; together we were unbeatable. F–king on fire. I was their girl, and they were my breakers. Until they did something they promised they never would: broke my heart.
We were 17 when they left me. You see, for kids like us, dance was all we had. Growing up in a rundown housing estate in London with no prospects can make you view the world differently. It can make you choose the wrong path. I chose dance, and they chose crime.
Three years later, I’ve won a scholarship to Stardom Academy. I try to forget my past. But how can I do that when the four boys who hurt me are back?
And this time, they’re following in my footsteps and joining the academy, too.
Freestyle is book one of Academy of Stardom, a gritty, contemporary reverse-harem romance. If you love dance, your men on the criminal side, alpha hot holes, and the friends-to-enemies-to-lovers trope, this is for you. Contains mature themes and ends on a cliff-hanger.
