Publisher's Summary

Erin Doyle can't stand manwhores, and she particularly can't stand Brendan Langstrom - the guy who avoids relationships like the plague and never sleeps with the same girl twice.

She and Brendan have waged a war of mutual disdain for years, but when Brendan picks up the pieces after her world unravels, they'll be forced to admit that beneath their dislike is something else entirely - something they're not supposed to feel. Because Brendan isn't just her nemesis...he's also her fiancé's best friend.

Contains mature themes.

I thought this was just ok. The past /present chapters were preventing me from completing enjoying the story. And I honestly thought Brandon wasn't the same person as he was in Waking Olivia. I also thought Erin wasn't likeable enough. I'll still read Elizabeth work, a new to me author this year and she's a hidden gem!

ANGST, SLOW BURN, FORBIDDEN ROMANCE

After listening to Waking Olivia, I was excited to learn that secondary characters Brendan and Erin had their own book. I really enjoyed Drowning Erin. The story was told through a dual point of view and in the present and past. We got to see how Erin and Brendan's relationship developed and how their "hate" or "dislike" for each other turned into friendship and love. Erin was such a different character than the one we met in Waking Olivia. She was still extremely likeable and relateable, but she was such a sad soul who basically gave up on herself, her wants, likes and dreams to please everyone else in her life, especially her fiance/Brendan's best friend, Rob. Erin had family secrets she was keeping from Rob because she wasn't sure how he would react being that he was so judgmental and condescending in a way. He really thought he was better than Erin and than Brendan. I hated the way he was with Erin and quite frankly I did not like Rob at all. He was a jerk from the beginning and those feelings solidified towards the end of the story. After he left for his business trip, leaving Erin behind, Brendan was the one who was looking out for Erin.

Erin was a protector of her family. She was the rock that kept it all together and it wasn't fair to her. I did not like Erin's mother and it was unfair the way she expected Erin to pick up the pieces every single time. The woman was all about appearances. When Brendan realized all that Erin was doing to protect her family, he became her confidant and her friend. Erin trusted all her deepest secrets to Brendan, who did not judge her, but wanted what was best for her. He was willing to do whatever to help Erin. Their relationship was complex, but so real.

The chemistry between these two characters was powerful. It was such a slow burn romance, but definitely inevitable. I really enjoyed this book.
