A Lot Like Redemption [Rewriting]
Arlington High Book One
Freshly on probation, seventeen-year-old Guillermo Lopez has one shot at redeeming himself in the eyes of the state along with his parents. With a violent past, Guillermo isn't certain of a colorful future too much with the constant reproach he sees in his father's eyes. When he meets Regan London, a gentle girl who doesn't care to judge him, he begins to feel a small sense of hope.
Regan is no stranger to pressure. With her father constantly pushing her to study to be an accountant, she knows a thing or two about living up to an image. Not to mention, there's her boyfriend who is ready to take things further in more ways than one. All Regan wants is some space and freedom, and when she meets Guillermo, the only person who isn't asking her for anything, finds herself at peace with him.
The last thing Guillermo wants is to repeat history, even if it seems like Regan is unhappy with her needy boyfriend and pushy father. Avoiding Regan should be easy. Although when issues arise in Regan's life, Guillermo's the one she goes to, and despite his checkered past, Regan doesn't look at him like a monster. Showing his parents he's changed is Guillermo's ultimate goal, but when it comes to Regan, it seems like her heart's crying out for him. Now Guillermo must decide if he's playing prince charming or if he's about to screw-up yet again.
