Breaking Away
By: Calista Smith
Release Day: March 13th
Blog Tour: 15th-19th
Hosted By: Sandra Love

Eighteen year old Raquel had
just graduated high school and already her life was a mess. When her dad
offered her what seemed like the only solution to her problems, she jumped at

His conditions were solid. He'd pay for college, she'd stay in his condo in San
Diego, and he'd get her the professional help she needed. In return she'd leave
behind everything and everyone who ever mattered.

That meant zero contact with her best friend Natalia and, more importantly, No

Pasts have a way of haunting you, and no matter how far you run from the
problems in life, you can't outrun yourself.

She soon finds out that even with college, a job, and new friends, picking up
the pieces isn't as simple as she thought it would be.

Raquel was about to learn the hard way that Breaking Away

isn't always as easy as it seems.

**Note: This book contains strong language, mature topics and sexual content.**

Raquel, "Rocky" as her
friends call her, is an introverted girl, on the brink of turning eighteen.
Having already been dealt a bad hand recently, her life gets even more
complicated when her parent's divorce forces her to relocate with her mom to
the city of Rancho Cucamonga, California. She will be facing her senior year in
a new high school. Fortunately Natalia, her best friend since birth, will be
there. It's the one thing keeping Rocky from completely going off the deep end.

She plans to stay focused on her future, which includes trying to join the
Peace Corps. Then in walks Dante. He's cocky, handsome, well-built, popular and
so not her type. She is determined to keep her distance. The last thing she
needs is someone prying into her past. Dante loves a challenge though, and when
his relentless pursuit captures her attention, she just can't stop herself from
falling for him. They soon realize that things aren't always what they seem and
find themselves forging an intense bond. But when life continues to hand them
obstacle after obstacle, can their new found love help save her or will she
finally find herself Breaking Down?
