Almost HomeBook - 2016
Brooke arrived back in Rockdale recently, only to leave yet another foster home. On the day she was supposed to go live with her dad, she finds out he?s been arrested, again. Starving and roaming the streets, she resorts to snatching a guy?s wallet?only he catches her and that?s when she realizes he?s her ex-boyfriend, Ace. A former heroin addict and drug dealer. She pushes him away to focus on finding a family that she wants and that will choose her. Cole, aka, Ace, has spent the past year torturing himself with guilt over his brother?s death. With zero direction in life, he attempts to act like he?s glad to be alive, for his dad?s sake. But, whether it?s life or school, he simply doesn?t care. He?s stuck in summer school and his dad won?t even let him have a girlfriend until he gets his grades up. When he?s brought face-to-face with Brooke, the girl he?s thought about every day since she abruptly left town last year, something sparks inside him. He feels foolish for thinking that she would still like him, but he holds onto the smallest amount of hope that maybe he has something to live for. Someone who accepts him and his colorful past. Only she won?t give him the time to show her he?s changed. As their paths continue to cross, they?re sent on a dramatic emotional roller coaster until they can?t deny the raw love between them any longer. Can Brooke and Cole hide their relationship from his dad? And when Cole?s past catches up with him, will Brooke still want him if he becomes a dealer again? If she only knew, he was only doing it to keep her safe?
