Product Description


"Another addictive triumph for the impressively prosaic Tucker." (Globe and Mail)

“Tucker deftly steers the damsel-in-(serious, nearly fatal, possibly mob-related)-distress-rescued-by-a-knight-in-shining armor storyline, making these star-crossed lovers compelling. A sexy romantic, gangster-tinged page-turner.” (Kirkus Reviews)

"Unique, engrossing, and heartbreaking. Burying Water is a mesmerizing read that will keep you captivated until the very last page." (Rachel Van Dyken #1 New York Times bestselling author)

"Dark, ominous, and sexy...compelling from beginning to end." (Laura Kaye New York Times bestselling author)

"Emotionally haunting. Richly evocative. Dangerously sexy. A stirring story of resilience, courage and the healing power of love." (Vilma's Book Blog)

"Lush, atmospheric, and addictive, with a romance that sizzles. Guard your heart." (Amber Hart author of Before You on Five Ways to Fall)

"You'll only need one reason to fall in love with K.A.Tucker." (Jennifer L. Armentrout #1 New York Times bestselling author on Five Ways to Fall)

"This is a fun, flirty, super sexy love story that offers all of the best of opposites attracting. K.A. Tucker's writing is engaging, witty, and endearing just like her characters." (Jay Crownover New York Times bestselling author on Five Ways to Fall)

Product Description

The highly anticipated start of a new romantic suspense series from the beloved, USA Today bestselling author of Ten Tiny Breaths.

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.

I’ve been staring at a blank screen for an undetermined amount of time, not sure where to start with my review on Burying Water. And the reason for this is - there are no words left. K.A. Tucker has created such a brilliant piece of work, that I’m almost afraid to talk about it for fear of not being worthy to discuss such a simply amazing book. This wasn’t just another romantic read for me, this book has become a part of me, an extension of myself - it has latched onto my soul. Its taken pieces of my heart that I’ll never get back, and given me a feeling of warmth that I never want to let go. The laughter, the love, the suspense, and the ugly crying - all of it, I completely loved every second. Yes, the ugly crying is included in that. And I’m not talking about a few little tears either, I mean the painful, gasping ugly cry that hurts - but hurts in such a good way. It will happen, it does happpen - and through the tears the love behind the message will find you and help wipe away the sadness. KA Tucker’s writing is just that powerful and compelling.

I am lost and somehow found. I am afraid and yet somehow comforted. I am drifting and yet somehow….home.

Jesse Welles wasn’t looking for love. He wasn’t looking for any complications . 6 months ago, he landed the job of his dreams as a mechanic at a popular garage in Portland and he’s more than content spending his days doing what he loves - working on cars. He definitely wasn’t looking to meet a mysterious girl on the side of the road on a dark and stormy night. A girl who’s haunting eyes, cryptic words and seductive, soft lips have left him longing for more. When the same girl shows up weeks later, the wife of a very controlling, high powered man - the message is obvious.

A woman is found beaten nearly to death in a snowstorm by the Chief of Police of a small town in Oregon. She is rush to the hospital and eventually survives ... physically, that is, because she has no memory of who she is and eventually names herself "Water". When she recovers and is well enough, she moves in with the Chief's neighbour, Ginny, who lives on a horse farm with her dog, Felix, and her two horses, also named Felix (she likes the name "Felix"). Ginny is 65-years-old, cranky and doesn't want anyone on her property but Water and Ginny eventually become friends. Water gets a job in a store and eventually starts her building her life.

Jesse and Alex meet when she has a flat tire on a rainy night. They know people in common so keep seeing each other. There is an attraction and they start seeing each other. The problem is that Alex is married to Viktor, who is a Russian mobster who has no qualms in beating Alex up when she is not being the perfect wife to him.

This is the second book I've read by this author and I enjoyed it. I liked the writing style. It's written in first person perspective in Water's voice in the present and Jesse's voice in the past (the chapters are labeled so it's obvious) ... given how the two stories (the "now" and the "then") intertwined, this worked for me. I thought the author did a good job with the character development. As a head's up, there is swearing, violence and adult activity.

It is the first in the Burying Water series and I look forward to reading the others.

K.A. Tucker is an author who everyone has heard of. She writes New Adult/Adult fiction, which is a genre that I don't touch upon too often, but I do have my favourites. Burying Water is a book and series that I've been meaning to get to forever practically, and now that I have the sequel to the first, I can just go ahead and binge read them both at once and actually feel the development and change between the two novels. This was a real success and I'm so excited to continue reading Tucker's books and see what they'll bring to my emotions in the future. I'm sure that everyone'll find something they love about this book, whether it is the mystery between Water's amnesia and how she was left beaten or the romance. Agh, I just can't get all of the in-depth part of the story out of my head.

I guess that you could call this a new adult book for a reason. It's kind of YA, but then again, this features characters who are in their early to mid-twenties and minor sexual content as well as false language. Nothing that an older teenager can't handle, actually. I love the psychological thriller part of it, which I will get into more in detail soon, but the most important thing is that you'll take a chance with this beauty.

So here we have our protagonist, Jane Doe, who wakes up in the hospital, full of bruises and cuts, not remembering who she is or what had happened to her. She renames herself Water, and wants to begin her new life, trying to remember what had happened to her. She goes to live with an older woman and there she meets Jesse, the son of the doctor who had treated her and the sheriff.
