Sizzling Summer Giveaway

I'm participating in the Sizzling Summer Giveaway hosted by YA Bound.  It's an awesome giveaway and also features 50 authors and their really cool books!!  So click on the link and check out all the participating blogs and the authors they got paired up with. 
I got Jennifer Lane and I was really happy about it!!  I'll always have a spot in my brain for her and her book Streamline.  Ms. Lane was the *first* author that ever asked me to review her book on my blog!!  I had just started my blog at the time and had NO idea what the heck I was doing, but I was so honored that someone wanted me to read their book.  So yeah Streamline was the first book I ever received for review that I didn't pay for.  I'll never forget that :)  Here's the review I wrote last year :)
And now for the GUEST POST:

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.

Ready for Streamline's Dream Cast?

Streamline’s hero was easy to find because actor Wentworth Miller is my muse. He’s a Biracial former high school swimmer who inspired the character of Leo Scott. I think Wentworth’s a fantastic actor who portrays the perfect juxtaposition of strength and vulnerability. He evokes great emotion in me.

Leo’s girlfriend Audrey Scott is smart and loyal. He finds much of his courage from her love. Thanks to Ava from Book Nerds Anonymous for choosing this image of Audrey.

Leo’s older brother Jason is a wall of muscle with a major chip on his shoulder.

Leo’s father James has beautiful hazel eyes and a HOT temper.

Leo’s mother Mary Scott prior to her car accident:

So what do YOU think? How close are these actors to the images in your head? Visit my Streamline pinterest board to see more characters:
