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.
Separate we were insanely good, together we were unbeatable. F*&ing on fire.
I was their girl and they were my Breakers.
Until they did something they promised they never would; break my heart.

We were seventeen 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 this new gritty, contemporary reverse harem academy trilogy for 17+ readers and deals with adult themes and some subjects you may find upsetting. 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 foul language and sexual scenes and ends on a cliffhanger.**



I received a copy of this book for an honest review

Bea Paige is a new to me author. When I read the Synopsis, I was intrigued. This is a reverse harem; the guys are HOT and Pen is amazing.

Pen has had a hard life between dealing with her mother and brother things have not been pretty for her. Pen only wants a family to love her. Her only outlet for the hurt in her life if Dance. She meets up with the Breakers, who are Xeno, York, Zayn & Dax. She gets to know them and falls for all of them but when Xeno makes her choose stay with dance crew as friends or pick one and never dance with the crew again. There are twist, turns, deceit, ultimatums and deals that are made that make her walk away from her Breakers.

Things are looking up for Pen when she gets into Stardom Academy. She is on her way to her dream. Until the Breakers make an appearance in her life again. She is in turmoil the deals she made is now off the table and things can get UGLY.

I enjoyed getting to know Pen, Xeno, York, Zayn, and Dax.  I have to say they all have qualities I loved but they also have huge flaws. Dax is the one that walked away with my heart.  These guys would do anything to protect Pen and Pen would do anything to protect her family. Pen’s Brother, David, and Zayn’s uncle, Jeb, are an evil pair and manipulate things to what they want no matter the cost. This is a cliff hanger and I cannot wait to find our what happens next.

Bea Paige lives a very secretive life in London… she likes red wine and Haribo’s (preferably together) and occasionally swings around poles when the mood takes her.
Bea loves to write about love and all the different facets of such a powerful emotion. When she’s not writing about love and passion, you’ll find her reading it and ugly crying.
