Young Adult Romance

In Sidney St. James newest novel, you might say it was time to put the relationship of the characters down as… ‘it’s complicated.’

Many people say that love comes in many shapes and sizes. Love in this Young Adult Romance is no exception. This beloved genre has today gotten a reputation for a certain messy shape… the love triangle.

Take our characters in LET ME DRIVE. Claire Banning loves Billy Joe Briscoe. Sammy Pryor, the best friend of Billy Briscoe, loves Claire Banning. Briscoe loves Jennifer Welch, a star actress on stage at the Paramount Theater on Congress Avenue in downtown Austin, Texas. The problem continues when Jennifer Welch falls in love with Matt Jenkins, and Claire Banning begins to hate Jennifer Welch.

Our story will demonstrate that love is complicated, and what’s even more complex is falling in love with someone who is already in love with someone else, leaving the characters in a fix. Just when we thought how messy a love triangle can get, it becomes even far more complex and gets, even more, messier when there’s a fifth entrant to the equation, Randy Keller.

Falling heads over heels into a love triangle can be a noticeable indicator of polyamory. Some of our characters get into one while some unknowingly find themselves involved in one.

Has all of this explained why we say that the relationships of all of our characters are complicated… almost from the very beginning.

There’s a fine line drawn in the dirt between love and hate. Beware of the literary whiplash. By the time you have read to the end of this love triangle, you will see that competition and desire are a dangerous, deliciously entertaining mix.

The setting for this story occupies a time in the early 1960s in Austin, Texas. Claire Banning explains her love situation best, saying, “You can’t decide how much you love people. It just happens. What she tries to find out is that even when the mind forgets, the heart remembers.

Many love triangle stories made it to the silver screen. Some are Sandra Bullock, Bill Pullman and Peter Gallagher in “While You Were Sleeping” made in 1995. Another is “The Apartment” made in 1965 starring Shirley MacLaine, Jack Lemmon, and Fred MacMurray. Oh, and yes, let’s not forget “Titanic” made in 1997 starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, and Billy Zane. Oh, I can go on and on.

Simply said, there’s a place in Romance genres for Young Adult romances and love triangles. “LET ME DRIVE” might stand the test of time as it will keep you guessing to the very last ten pages ‘what boy gets the girl.’


Release February 14, 2019, a Romance Novel

My newest release has a setting in Austin, Texas in 1960. One would have to caution our lovers that romance can’t be found in a store. Whatever is in Capital Plaza isn’t what they were looking for. Passion is fueled by self-love and would be dealt a mortal blow by selfishness. Romance is when they get totally lost in a moment with another… a moment made sacred for just the two of them.

Their romantic bond is from one heart to another, one mind to another and definitely one soul to another! So, when our characters feel romance for real, they should treasure it always, the right way, as something special between just the two of them. The true love our characters in this novel mutually felt is wealth money can’t buy.

There’s a primary reason why Eros, that mischievous God, was believed by Greek Mythology to be the brother of Chaos. The ancient mythologists understood the power of all forms of love. Erotic desire is fierce and wild!

When friendships like that of Grayson Schiff and Kaytlyn Robertson become both familial and wild, we have a dangerous animal on the loose.

The object of their desire should not be with each other, but it was. Did Grayson want to be more than just friends? Was he only infatuated by the beauty of Kaytlyn who was engaged to Landon Hartstein?  As friends, they stand side by side not looking deeply into each other’s eyes, only outward to common interests. This boundary established between them was one they each wanted to cross, but unknown circumstances prevented them from doing so.

Like many friends who are smitten, they each mistake these signals and fall into erotic patterns that nearly end their friendship forever.

When Grayson focused his love craving at his new-found friend, he threatened the integrity of their friendship and entered into a dangerous liaison.

Grayson fell in love the night he first met Kaytlyn. She was cold and wet, her hair matted and had thoughts of ending it all. Her plunge from the bridge almost happened, but he saved her in the nick of time. Their attraction to each other was palpable, intense, and circumscribed by their commitments to other people. Hers with Landon Hartstein and his with Abigail McCarthy. The absence of sex only made the heat stronger between the two.

Their romantic bond is from one heart to another, one mind to another, and one soul to another. Finally, when two people feel the romance is real, they will treasure it always, the right way, as something special between only the two of them. But, the question to ask is, “Which two?”
