We all have dreams. Mine were filled with college and the boy I loved, Cruz Montoya. But all that went up
with smoke when he got sent to Juvenile Hall, my sister killed herself, and Dad up and left. My mother, and I use that terminology loosely, became a monster
transferring her pains and disappointment. I became trapped.
Honorably discharged, I’m back in Arlington Heights, the small town that only remembers the black sheep persona of my youth. I could list a dozen reasons for my return, but the only one that matters is Roxanne Waters. I should probably leave her be. I’m not much of a catch with PTSD and the childhood memories rattling around in my brain. Yet, I can’t walk away. There’s a darkness that surrounds the death of her sister, a secret that’s slowly killing her. I’m going to find out everything. This is the moment of truth to see if we can make it or if I’m nine years too late.

5 Stars – Highly Recommended Read! Don’t Miss Out!
Captivating. That’s the word which comes to mind when thinking about Swagger and trying to sum the book up.
Without giving too much away, Ms. Prince has written a story that deals with unrealized young love, some rough issues and some flawed people, added in second chances at love, and the mix was done with a heart. Cruz and Roxann are characters that I won’t forget about any time soon.
I highly recommend reading Swagger, and I’m sure the “voice” of this book, told in first person will capture you the readers as it did me. Once you start reading, you won’t be able to put it
