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?”
Excerpt from Sink or Swim:
Dean helped her buckle—her hands shaking too badly to do it herself—and then flew like a bat out of hell all the way to the Emergency Room entrance at the hospital. The moment they were inside, he deposited her into one of the chairs in the waiting area. She would have argued if she’d thought her legs could hold her any longer.
“Stay here. I’m gonna go see what I can find out.”
Allie sat there in a daze watching him argue with the nurse behind the reception desk. She’d known this was coming. She’d known it the day she left the city. Stage four cancer wasn’t something you walked away from. Not without some kind of miracle, and her family had never scored high on the miracle charts. Then, why the hell was she so stunned?
Her mother was dying. Dying. The fact wasn’t new. And it wasn’t what bothered her. Her mother was about to be dead. Dead. That was it. There was a hell of a lot of difference between dying and dead. Yeah, sure, one usually led to the other, but her brain had refused to make that connection until now.
Her mom was going to die. Be dead. Dead. She hated that word. It sounded so goddamn final.
