Book Description:
Seems like Leo Scott has it all: looks, brains, and athletic talent. He’s captain of his high school swim team with a bright future in college and beyond. But Leo has secrets. His mother’s crippling car accident has devastated his family and left Leo to deal with his father’s abuse, battered and alone.

Leo’s girlfriend Audrey Rose is poised for her own share of success. As one of Florida’s top high school swimmers, Audrey dreams of college swimming stardom. But there’s an obstacle to her glorious rise to the top. Her number-one supporter–her father–is in prison for murder.

Part murder mystery, part tale of young love in a military family, this gripping story takes readers on a journey from Pensacola to Annapolis. Leo and Audrey must band together to rise above the adversity they encounter and find their true selves in the process. When everything’s on the line . . . streamline.

This is going to be a quickie review.

You want to feel ALL THE EMOTIONS????? Read this book.  Seriously, go ahead, read it.  This book tackles so many hard situations it’s unreal.  I couldn’t imagine going through the obstacles these characters have to go through.  One of the biggest issues throughout the book is abuse, followed closely with addiction.  If you are queasy about tough subjects, this may not be the book for you.  But I do hope you give it a try, you can see just how strong this characters are.

Parts of the book felt drug out, but when I got to the end I was glad the pacing was a little slow.  It allowed more time for me to really get to know the characters, and what they are going through.  I highly recommend this book if you are wanting something to test your comfort limits.  There isn’t anything sexually graphic, but some of the images of the abuse Leo goes through can be pretty intense.
