Publisher's Summary

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.

Outstanding! Perfect love / mystery book!

Don't hesitate to take a try on this book, you won't regret it! The way this book takes you from the past to the present in each chapter had be mesmerized. The author knew just how to unfold the plot in a way that had me on the edge of my seat the whole time.
It was one of those books you have to finish to be satisfied. Stopping and having to finish later isn't an option.

I really, really like all of K.A. Tucker's books. I mean....really like them. I've listened to them all at least twice. I get so wrapped up in them I have to listen again to make sure I didn't miss any of the key puzzle pieces while I was daydreaming during the first listen, pretending / fantasizing that I'm one of the characters =)

I listen to a lot of different authors in this genre, but this is one of the best!
Get ready for a full eleven hours of perfection!

Worth a credit? YOU BET!

BOOK REVIEW: 4 STARS

Burying Water is an amazing book. This is the second KA Tucker’s work I’ve read, and I can say that she has an impressive style of writing. I like the development of the storyline, it was very creative and not at all predictable. I like the characters, they were very complex and loveable from the beginning, and not only the main characters, but also the secondary ones. Even though I don't usually like stories that go back and forth from future to past, that was the best way to write this book, because if it would have been written in a chronological order, most of the details about Alex and Jesse wouldn’t have made any sense. And of course, I loved the ending of this story. It’s funny because I thought all the the series was focused on Alex and Jesse, and that this book was going to be a cliffhanger - this is the reason why I didn't read this book last year, waiting for the entire series to be published -, but Jesse and Alex’s love story has a beautiful happy ending.

I loved Alex and Jesse together, as much as I loved Water and Jesse together. Getting to know their story from each POV was amazing. How something so beautiful came from something so ugly and after that tragic attack that nearly killed Alex, she finds what she most wanted: a family, true friendship and real love, even without knowing it. I loved the little details Jesse shared with Water to help her remember who Alex really was. And most of all I loved their connection. It was so deep that not even the lack of memories stopped Water from falling in love with Jesse all over again.

The secondary characters were all great. Ginny was a woman hard to love but once I got to know her a little better, how she helped Water and how she accepted Water’s help, I couldn’t help myself but to love her like if she was my own mother, because in one way or another, that was what she became to Water. I also loved Jesse’s family, they were all a great support for Water.

So, if I loved this book so much, why only 4 stars? - you might be asking. I love erotica, and for my liking, the sex scenes in this book were all rushed. KA Tucker was more focused on the romantic side than the sex side, and I liked that, but it would rather read “We kissed and we made love and we woke up the next day together” than a sex scene with no details. Again, this is because I love erotica, and I love reading (and listening to) steamy sex scenes.

AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: 5 STARS

Josh Goodman and Elizabeth Louise did a perfect narration for this book. I love Elizabeth performances. She knows how to fit perfectly her tone of voice and attitude to the characters, especially Water. I’m sure I cried almost at the end of the book because of her stunning read. Josh also made a great work with his narration. He transmitted Jesse’s personality and his female voices were so believable. Despite the rush sex scenes, their narrative for kisses, the caresses and the intimate scenes were great.

An amazing audiobook for an wonderful story.

Suspenseful and Nerve-Wracking

You know right away that something terrible happens, but it takes the the whole book to find out out the truth. It will have you in the edge of your seat the whole time.

The truth pushed to the surface like water

Without your memory, does your heart still remember who it loves? That is the question and basically the main plot of this book. It’s told through flashbacks to the past and in the present so the reader must piece together the mystery alongside the main character. I really enjoyed the romance and the journey to the truth. I connected to the characters and really cared about what would happen to them in the end. The narrators were terrific as well. Great romantic listen.

Nice Story

I got this book on sale, but I would have spent a credit on it. This was a nice story, I cried at a few spots. However, it is not the typical fairy tale romance. This is one of those books for thoughtful reflection. Everything gets wrapped up with a bow simply and quietly. You cheer for the main characters even though she is married and having an affair. I didn't think I would ever do that, but I did for Alex. I wanted her to leave her husband and be with Jesse. I wish a few things had gone differently, but it was still a very nice listen. I have never listened to a K.A. Tucker book but I will look into others now and see if anything else peaks my interest.

Nice story but....a little vanilla.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Apparently I missed something as the reviews for this book had me thinking it would be a suspenseful mystery...that it was not. I liked the book but it wasn't even predictable as it was that simple. There was nothing to try to "figure out". Nice story for a lifetime movie though.

Love Story Formula Super Spin

Our two twenty-something love-birds tell this story, her point-of-view reflecting from a “Now” perspective and his reflecting from a “Then” perspective. I enjoyed the use of these polarized points in time because it burrowed the mystery aspects of the narrative more deeply under the layers of backstories and issues / concerns of supporting characters. The technique is complex but not the delivery. Author K. A. Tucker carried it out in a way that makes you sit back and enjoy the ride. There are several scenes and references to domestic abuse that can make for pretty tough spots for an empathic reader/listener but it may be worth it to push through the cringe because the story is pretty good and the ending may be worth it for those who go for happy conclusions. Tucker didn't exactly break the formula (Boy Meets Girl, Boy Loses Girl, Boy Wins Back Girl) but she made it rock by dipping it deep into the suspense genre.

The two narrators did a terrific job portraying the main characters as well as the voices of the supporting characters that come in all shapes, sizes, ages, and genders. The readings added to the story’s credibility and realism and overall balance. Bravo!

Romantic but not a mystery

I listened to the entire story but I didn't find it suspenseful. I usually don't read romantic novels so I don't want to give the impression that the book wasn't good. It just wasn't what I expected. It's good but not a mystery full of surprises.

Burying Water

Where does Burying Water rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I'd probably rank this in the top 25% of audiobooks I've listened to so far.

What other book might you compare Burying Water to and why?

I'd probably compare this book to What If by Rebecca Donovan just because of the way things were set up. The suspense and the constant wondering of what was what.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was the naming process and also the word association game.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I could have listening for 11 hours straight if I had the time.

Any additional comments?

I really liked the narrators, I thought they did a great job and I'd definitely listen to them again.
