Review- Burying Water by K.A.Tucker


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 neighbour, 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 recognises 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.

I have read and loved K.A.Tucker's Ten Tiny Breaths before. I did read the remaining books in the Ten Tiny Breaths series as well but I did not like some of them and was more than disappointed that I didn't. That was the reason I was so hesitant to pick up anything else by her. I didn't get my hopes too up before I picked up Burying Water and I think that is why it surprised me so much. But in a pleasant way of course. 

Our heroine is a Jane Doe. After a horrific incident, she survives but she has lost all memory of herself. Because of a kind doctor she moves to the small town of Sisters, Oregon where she can start a new life for herself. She then starts calling herself Water. I loved Water. This girl had been through so much. Some decisions she had made in the past cost her so much in the present but I loved being inside her head and trying to figure things out.

Our guy is Jesse. I am SO glad that we got Jesse's point of view as well. because it was highly important to the story. Jesse is kind of like an anti hero. He's not a good guy and never claims to be. He's made mistakes in the past, gotten himself tangled up in the wrong stuff with the wrong people. But the only person he truly cares about is the girl Water was and is. I found Jesse to be a complex yet intriguing character.

The book goes from Jesse and Water's point of view. Where Water tells us what's happening in the present Jesse tells us what happened in the past. Of how he and the girl Water was met and what led them to the present. I loved the chemistry Jesse and Water shared. Things were extremely difficult and complicated for them but they still tried to be there for each other. Their story was definitely not an easy one.

If you're looking for an all out mushy romance, Burying Water is not the book for you. With multiple characters with shades of grey and a complex plot Burying Water is a mix of new adult romance and suspense. One that I highly enjoyed and would recommend to everyone looking for a change in pace in genres. I am really glad that the remainder of the series is out because I'm ready to devour all the books. Burying Water was a great read.
