The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away.
Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?
Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.
The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.
This is my second book that I read by K.A. Tucker, and just like I liked the first one, I absolutely liked this one! I think I will have to read more of K.A. Tucker!
I can honestly say that I hate giving to much of the book away and telling my readers what the book is about because I believe that it is better if you go into a story half blind. You can read the synopsis, but most of the times I don't even like doing that because sometimes it gives away everything about the story line.... Well anyway I'm here to tell you why I liked the book, what I liked and what I didn't...I will not going to summarize it.
I think the thing I love the most about the book is the way it is written. Honestly K.A.Tucker has an astounding writing style that I love. It is simple and easy to understand but it is also beautiful. The book changed chapters from Then to Now. It went from the perspective of the female main character to the male main character. Female=Now; Male=Then (just a hint). I loved the changes of times and perspective, it made a story a lot more interesting to read and it even made it a little bit mysterious. But to tell honestly, the book was a little bit predictable...but at the same time I feel like every romance story is predictable to me, so maybe its just that I am good at guessing the plot twists and in what direction the characters are going (except for The Song of Ice and Fire..those books get me every damn time). But it was still an amazing story line with some pretty good characters.
The main two characters in the book are Jesse and Alex (aka. Water, aka Jane), but there are also a lot of awesome secondary characters! Jesse is our guy. To tell the truth, I didn't swoon for Jesse as much as I wanted to, but I did like him as a character more than Alex. Alex was just complicated and some things she did, I just couldn't get them. But the pair worked well, they fit each other perfectly. The feeling were very believable between them and the raw sexual attraction was also there.
I would definitely recommend this book to new adult romance lovers. The story plot was really good. The only thing is that I felt like the ending was a little bit rushed, but it did not effect the book that much. The book is still an amazing read. You would not want to miss this one out!
