Genre: Friends to Enemies to Lovers/New Adult College Romance (reverse harem)
Release Date: June 7, 2020
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.**
 


 

 

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.

#CoverReveal ~ “Corrupt” Series: Beautiful Sinners Series Spin-Off, by Author Elena M. Reyes, Genre: Romantic Suspense/New Adult, Release Date: June 24, 2020 ~ @ElenaMReyes @EJBookPromos

Title: Corrupt
Series: Beautiful Sinners Series Spin-Off
Author: Elena M. Reyes
Genre: Romantic Suspense/New Adult
Release Date: June 24, 2020
Cover Design: T.E. Black Designs

 

Corruption is the key to success and I’m the collector of all debts.
 
The first time I laid eyes on my little flower, she was dressed up—a beautiful temptation wrapped in perfection that I wanted to own. Possess. To take away from the pseudo perfect life that reeks with the narcissistic chains—the demands—holding her down.
 
She’s a pawn.
 
The daughter of my enemy.
 
Solimar Quintero is the future Mrs. Alejandro Lucas and doesn’t even know it. She isn’t aware that the man she smiles at—taunts to come closer—is a criminal. A wanted man. A nightmare for his enemies and her future.
 
I always get what I want.

Elena M. Reyes is the epitome of a Floridian and if she could live in her beloved flip-flops, she would.


As a small child, she was always intrigued by all forms of art: whether it was dancing to island rhythms, or painting with any medium she could get her hands on. Her passion for reading over the years has amassed her with hours of pleasure, but it wasn’t until she stumbled upon fanfiction that her thirst to write overtook her world.

She’s a short and sassy Latina with an adorable pup, a kiddo that keeps her on her toes, and a husband who claims she’ll cause him to go bald prematurely. Lol

I’ve got

planned out for years. Then she came along. On the outside she has it all

going to be broken. I just hope his heart can be mended when it’s all said and
done.

Excerpt
Prologue
I shift the old beater in drive and peel out as quick as I
can, leaving a trail of smoke in my path. The smell of burning rubber fills the
car and it isn’t until I round the corner that the smoke diminishes. Behind me,
just like my life—my past. With only the duffel bag riding co-pilot, and the
stash of money I was able to get from the safe. 
It won’t be long until he’s on the phone with all of his
goons to start the search for his missing property—me. At least that’s the way
I have lived my life for the past few years, as a prisoner. His prized
possession that he kept up on the shelf, out of reach and displayed with the
utmost prestige. 
If I so much as wore the wrong color, he’d lose his fucking
mind. I never went down without a fight, and when I did, I fought hard. I’m
pretty sure that’s what he liked the most, feeling the wrath of my bitterness.
He felt it alright, with the head of a golf club, straight to the balls. I hit
him so hard that he’s probably choking on them right now. 
None of it matters anymore. 
I drive for what feels like hours, though it was only two.
Those two hours have put enough space between myself and the life I lived that
I feel confident enough that it’s safe to pull into the next rest stop. My
stomach growls as I take a sip of my cold coffee. 
I pull into the first space available and my eyes search the
parking lot, just to be sure he didn’t follow me. 
The coast is clear.
I reach over and unzip the black bag and pull out my wallet,
pulling out my new i.d. Claire Hyland—my new identity. Just the last name,
anyways.  I’ve been working on the name change for a while, with the plan
to take off as soon as everything finalized. It’s the only way I can leave and
not be found. I still can’t believe Jorge pulled this off in time. The car, the
room to rent, and the interview. Apparently he has some connections with a
well-known family from Redwood. It just so happens that they were in need of an
art teacher. 
I’m forever in his debt. He’s my best friend and the only
person who knows that I left, let alone, where I’m going. 
I pull out the papers he printed for me on the job. 
Redwood High School
Long-term Art Substitute 
I’ve never taught before. I don’t even like kids, let alone
hormonal know-it-alls—but, there isn’t much out there with an arts degree.
A temporary teaching position is the perfect way to live low-key, for now,
anyway.

“Even before you were born, we belonged to each other, Vi,” I reminded
her, trying to fight the desperation to grab on to her and hold her, because I
could feel her slipping away from me more and more with each beat of my heart.
“You were in your mom’s belly, but I still felt you in my heart. It was as if
there was this invisible cord connecting your heart to mine. I can’t see it,
but I feel it. Every damn day. You are mine.”
“You’re right. I’ve always felt it too. I am yours. And you were supposed to be
mine. We were supposed to be each other’s firsts, Luca. First kiss. First
touch. First everything. We promised we would be each other’s firsts. ‘Firsts
and lasts,’ that’s what you said. I remember it as clear as if it were
yesterday. You swore that you would wait. That I was worth it. But you didn’t
wait, did you, Luca? You gave all your firsts away to someone else.”

“I…” My throat closed up, making it impossible to speak, to tell her everything
I needed to so I could fix this. Fix us and what I broke.

“You stole that from me, Luca.” Angry tears spilled from her eyes, and my heart
shattered even more. “You gave away everything that was supposed to be mine.
And you just expect me to be okay with that? I’ve waited my entire life to give
you my firsts, but you have none to give to me.”

“I’m sorry,” I whispered, my voice choked with emotions I was afraid to lose
control of. If I let the tears free that were burning my eyes, I might flood
the world.

“Sorry? You’re sorry?” Her laugh was hard and final, causing me to flinch.
“Yeah. So am I.”

“What does that mean?” My throat felt like I’d swallowed broken glass, and I
was surprised I didn’t spray blood on her with each exhale.

“It means I’m done. You tossed away your firsts like they meant nothing. So
mine are no longer yours.”

Excerpt
Prologue
The palms
of my hands are sweating.
Standing in
front of an unassuming building, I look up to see its sheer size. Still, it’s inconspicuous
because it looks exactly like all the other buildings surrounding it.
The sun
breaks out just behind the brick building, casting the entrance into shadow.
Funny,
that. Because I’ve been living in the shadows all my life. Now is the time for
me to come out of the shadows, and speak my truth.
Speak
our truth.
There’s a
line of cars in front of the building, all marked with the same lettering.
My heart
beats quickly as a shock of finality runs through my veins.
This is
where part of me will die and another part of me will live.
All my life
I’ve been worried about what people think of me. But I can’t continue on in a
life where I’m only breathing. I need to learn to live.
I take
several deep breaths, ready to cross the street and take the leap I’ve been
longing for.
“You can do
this,” I say to myself. The sun is moving higher, the shadow becoming smaller.
Yes, you
can.
I look to
my left, and to my right, checking for oncoming cars.
I keep
walking, crossing the street. I know if I stop for even a second, I’ll talk
myself out of going.
You can
do it.
I walk
until I come to the automated doors that slowly slide open.
Hopefully,
they’ll believe you.
I head to
the counter, where a woman with dark hair pulled back in a severe ponytail and
wearing a uniform is working on a computer. She looks up, but remains seated.
“Can I help you?” she says in a flat voice.
My hands
tremble, so I knit them together to stop the emotion bursting to come forward.
“I, um,” my
voice quivers with uncertainty.
“Are you
okay?” She stands and comes closer to the counter. She looks behind me,
searching for a hint as to why I’m so edgy.
“I, um,
need to talk to the police unit who deals with sexual abuse.”

 

Author Bio
STRONG, BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS
CHARACTERS.

**Write something worth reading**I’m Margaret and I’m a self-published author.

Recently I was
fortunate in obtaining New York Times best-selling status on my YA/NA book –
Ugly, and my YA book – Mistrust.
My last six books have been YA and I’m completely in love with the genre. I
love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.

My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my
heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the ‘perfect’
woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren’t just
about the romance. They’re about finding strength, acceptance and making life
long connections.

I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.
