{Blog Tour} Excerpt (+Giveaway): Streamline by Jennifer Lane

I’m excited to be a part of the blog tour for Streamline by Jennifer Lane! I have a great excerpt to share with you today. But first, I want to tell you a bit about the book:

Streamline by Jennifer Lane

Paperback, 460 pages

Published March 27th 2012 by Omnific Publishing

Description from 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.

Here’s an excerpt from Streamline by Jennifer Lane:

His hand started knocking before he really intended to do so, but there was no response. What was taking so long? Had CS actually gone somewhere? Leo’s hands trembled as he contemplated knocking again.

When at last his father opened the front door, Leo kept close watch on his expression. He saw what he thought was a glimpse of relief perforate his father’s gloom, and for a moment he actually smiled. Leo knew he’d done the right thing.

His father looked worse than last week, if that was possible. He had dark circles under his eyes and his beard was even fuzzier and wild, his clothes grimier than before.

Leo swallowed. “I was just in the neighborhood, um, on a run.” He felt like an idiot, trying to find words that wouldn’t incite his father’s anger. “Dad? Um, would you help me? Would you help me get back into shape?”
