Description via Goodreads
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.

Leo saw Audrey on T-court before she could see him, and she'd never looked prettier. 

She'd pulled her thick auburn hair up high in a ponytail, and a sleeveless white shirt accentuated the soft curve of her breasts and hard definition of her arms. Eyelets and tiny sky blue flowers detailed the shirt, which she'd tucked into a navy blue miniskirt. Beaded sandals completed her cool summer ensemble. Already sweating in his whiteworks, Leo's temperature rose further just looking at her.

Ignoring his mother and her companion, he ran toward his unsuspecting girlfriend. At the last second Audrey noticed him and gave him a dazzling smile. He scooped her up, twirling her around. In that moment, Leo finally released the tension he'd been holding throughout Plebe Summer. It was now Audrey Summer, and the hairs on his body stood at attention as he held her tight.

''I missed you so much,'' Leo whispered into her ear, cradling the nape of her neck. 

''I missed you even more than that!''

''Good to know you're still competitive.'' He smirked, holding her face next to his, cheek to cheek. Eventually Leo let go to go greet his other visitors.

  16. As an orginal Nancy Drew mystery lover, this sounds eight up my alley.

  17. Saw this cover a long time ago and I was like 'I gotta have this' and then I read the excerpt and found out it's a mistery and that the MC are swimmers (I used to be a swimmer before med school) so I was like 'GIMME NOWWWWWWW!'

  18. I have a weakness and that is to judge a book by the cover. I always do! And I absolutely adores this cover!

  19. I saw this book on someone's WOW post awhile back. I read the blurb and was immediately knew I had to read it. The cover is beautiful and I'm very into murder mystery love stories! <33

  20. That excerpt was so sweet! it really makes me want to read it.
