The Streamline Book Birthday Bash!

Streamline by Jennifer Lane turns a whole year old this week! To help Jennifer celebrate I'm taking part in her anniversary giveaway and birthday bash tour.

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.
Once I got to reading this book, I really couldn't put it down. I absolutely loved it, everything down to the cover. The characters were brought to life so vividly you couldn't help but get involved in their story.
The sense of a father's infuence over his children is seen from two different sides, in both Audrey and Leo. I felt so emotionally drawn into the battle between Leo's father and the rest of his family, willing someone to tell the authorities about his treatment of his family.
This book was well written, and all of the characters in it were given equal time at the forefront of the story. There was plenty of time to get to know them all, sympathising with each in their own situation.
The setup for each event in the storyline was brilliantly dealt with. It struck just the right level of hinting at what might be coming without giving it away too obviously. 
The story sees the lives of three military families all intertwined, and it's remarkable the effect that a single person can have on so many people in the name of what he believes to be love. 
I'm not going to spoil any of the details for you, you really need to get a hold of a copy for yourself and read it. 

And here is your chance! To celebrate Streamline's first anniversary Jennifer is giving away a signed print copy and three ebook copies. All you have to do is complete the Rafflecopter form and enter. Go on, you know you want to, you won't be disappointed!
