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.

Book Excerpt

At a stoplight Leo turned to his brother. “Jase, can I ask you a question
and you promise not to get angry?”

“That sounds like a giant setup.” Jason looked over. “What is it?”

“I…I want to make one last stop before we head north. Maybe
you could turn left at the next light?”

Looking ahead to the next street, Jason’s face hardened. “No. I’m
not taking you to see Constipated Stool-sample.”

“Please, Jase? I promised him I’d say goodbye.”

“You’re talking to Dad again?” Jason’s voice rose.

“You said you wouldn’t get mad!”

“And you set me up.” The light changed, and Jason edged the car
forward. “Mom would be ticked off if she found out I took you to
see Cat’s Sandbox.”

Leo couldn’t help but laugh.

Jason also snorted as he turned left onto their old street. He
pulled the car to the curb a half mile from their home and turned it
off. He stared straight ahead with his hands squeezing the steering
wheel. An air of indecisiveness filled the car.

“I know you think I’m stupid for wanting to see him,” Leo said.
Jason sighed. “You’re anything but stupid. I just don’t understand
why you’re taking his side.”

“I’m not taking anybody’s side! Why do I have to choose Mom
or Dad? Can’t I have them both?”


  1. Constipated Stool-Sample
    Is that supposed to be a band name LMAO!
