There are some things you just can't walk away from.

When sleeping in vacant warehouses and dark alleys becomes preferable to living at home, something is seriously wrong. But when word reaches Allie that her mother is facing a life threatening illness, she has no choice but to return to the place of nightmares. Leaving wasn't a choice, it was a necessity, and if returning hadn't been equally necessary, Allie never would have set foot back inside that hell-hole.

Dean is no stranger to hardship, but the day Allie walked out of his life, taking his heart right along with her, was hands-down the most frustrating. Six months later, she's back and Dean refuses to rest until he figures out exactly what the hell happened.

Now, Allie's drowning. Drowning in lies. Drowning in the truth. Drowning in pain, and anger, and fear. But there comes a time when every drowning person must decide whether they will . . . Sink or Swim?
My teaser, from what my reading app thing says is page 119 (out of 301) in the egalley:
The doctor had told her to say her goodbyes, but what did she really have to say to this woman? She was her mother, she was supposed to protect her and she didn't. But she was only human. Only a fragile, broken woman with no hope.
I'm reviewing for the blog tour, which started two days ago, and so far I'm really, really enjoying it! Be sure to come visit on August 6th! Hint hint. :) I've found that this summer--really this year in general, but especially this summer--I'm all about the contemporaries, which before I never especially liked.

I'll be visiting around and visiting back, so leave me links to your teasers! Have a lovely Tuesday!
