The lament of two teens – There’s nothing to read – was the trigger to the creation of Daryl Devore’s New Adult romance – Dancing in Circles.
One born into privilege and a charmed life surrounded by love and family.
The other born to a life of violence on the streets as the solemn leader of the notorious Shoresmen.
A young, idealistic co-ed, Julie Anderson, meets a jaded, cold gang member, Robert Holiday, and cracks his icy shell, allowing the warmth of her love to awaken his soul.
But – is Julie’s love strong enough to surpass all that life will throw at them? Social prejudice. Hatred. Violence. And is she willing to sacrifice her childhood dream of becoming a professional dancer for the man she loves?
Tied to the brotherhood of his gang, Robert is torn between his duties to them and his desire to spend his life with Julie. Can circumstance even allow him to lay down his ties to the gang so that he may hold onto his newfound love?
Sacrifices must be made, but only time will tell if it is enough.
By 3:45, the five friends settled into a booth at the restaurant, DREAMS. “Ok, the server is over there. Start talking.” Tricia propped her elbows on the table and rested her chin on her hands.
“What?” Jennifer batted her eyelids.
“Him. Who is he? What is he?” babbled Tricia. “Is he sleeping with somebody? Is somebody sleeping with him? Does he like brunettes named Tricia?”
“All right, all right. Well, Addison said that Zoe─”
“We know that. Zoe said that Janai said what?” Tricia and Heather shouted.
“His name is Robert. Kristal said that she heard Maddi tell Ashton…”
The server coughed, interrupting her monologue.
“Uh, Diet Cokes all around.” Julie pointed at everyone.
“I’ve got a date with him Friday night.” Tricia’s smile spread across her face.
Francine flicked her hair over her shoulders. “He and Parks had a disagreement in bio today.”
“Wait a sec.” Jennifer held up her hand. “Tricia gets a date, and Francine watches him fight with a teacher?”
The conversation paused while the server served their order.
Jennifer checked her cell phone. “Details, please. Tricia goes first, then you.” She pointed a pink polished fingernail at Francine.
Tricia signalled the end of her success story by popping her eyebrows up and down and smiling. Francine wrinkled her nose and sniffed. “I don’t think Trish’ll be going on her date.”
Julie nodded while sipping her Diet Coke.
“Why not?” Gossip queen Jennifer’s senses tingled.
Francine pulled herself up tall. “He’s not one of us. He’s Shore.”
“Ooh, a bad boy.” Tricia’s cheeks flushed.
“Tricia, get your head back here on planet reality.” Francine glared at her. “He’s not worth it. He’ll just get you into a car, do you, then dump you. Excuse my crudeness. Guys like him don’t care. Their brains and hearts are in their pants.”
