Publisher's Summary

It doesn't feel right. It doesn't feel wrong. It just...feels.

EJ Cunning, an art history major, dates musicians. Foster Blake, a chemical engineering major, can't sing a tune. They're not each other's type. They're coworkers.

Then, one night leads to sex - sex between friends - which leads to an agreement. It all seems so simple - but nothing ever is.

Many layers build a person's façade.

Look into the depths for what's hidden within.

It's more than water. It's a story - a living and breathing substance beyond the reflective surface.

Fantastic Story! Fantastic Narration & Listen!🎧

This is an amazing novel & audiobook, it grabs you from the start and holds you captive until the very end. It is well written & well told, has great storylines and character development. I just loved EJ, she has so much personality, is smart, sassy and full of life. Foster, the male lead, is a bit more reserved, is full personality too, just takes a while for it to show. I loved the chemistry between them, as well as the build up to their romance. Renee Ericson penned a beautiful friends to lovers romance. There are some heartfelt moments, some laughs, drama and of course love. Thank you for this great story.

I listened to the Audible edition, narrated by the amazingly talented Meghan Kelly! She brings a lot to this story, sets the perfect tone and adds the right amount of dramatic flair which brings to the story and it’s characters to life from the pages to your ears. She performs the voices of all the characters, gives each a distinct sound making it easy to follow the back and forth dialogue which she does effortlessly and without missing a beat. Meghan Kelly’s skillful narration enhances an already great story to a higher level of enjoyment. Thank you for another great listen!!

Not Bad

If you could sum up More Than Water in three words, what would they be?

Curious, strong, individuality

Who was your favorite character and why?

Foster, because he's smart and snarky. He reminds me of me.

What about Meghan Kelly’s performance did you like?

She had a lot of characters to voice and none of them were horrible. At first, Foster's voice annoyed me but I got past it.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

What makes us who we are?

Any additional comments?

Based on the title, I thought this was going to be fantasy based. Though it wasn't, it was a pleasant surprise.

A great story with great narration.

Any additional comments?

I had actually purchased the Kindle eBook of More Than Water by Renee Ericson in October 2015. I hadn't read it yet, so it was the perfect time for me to do so, while adding audio narration to it!

I really enjoy my Kindle books that I have added audio narration to. The narration seems to give the story added depth and bring it to life more. Plus, there's the added bonus of being able to LISTEN if you can't read - in the car, while going for a walk - you get the picture.

More Than Water focuses on Evelyn, or EJ as she likes to be called, and Foster. EJ is an art history major, while Foster is a chemical engineering major. They are total opposites. But while working together at the campus library, they begin a friendship that develops into something more - friends with benefits.

As with any relationship, EJ and Foster have their ups and downs. And while Foster soon becomes one of the few people that truly knows EJ as a person and not for her family's stature, he is also hiding his true self from her.

I enjoyed the story of More Than Water as a whole. It had a "punch you in the face" moment when the title made sense, and although I found some situations predictable, I was definitely cheering for EJ and Foster the whole way through. As the story progressed, the feels were certainly there, leaving me with the fluttery happy feeling at the very end.

Meghan Kelly did a wonderful job of narrating this story. The tones she used for the different characters were consistent throughout the recording. Her voice was easy on the ears, enjoyable to listen to and definitely made my reading experience a lot more rewarding.

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

This was a fun story...Ej and Foster, met by chance, working at the library together....Both of them coming out of bad ending relationships and not really looking for anything new and serious...That changes one night, when they meet by chance at a bar and start playing drinking games with his friends...they fall into a friends with benefits kind of situation and before either one of them know it, its more..Foster backs off trying to deny it...but finally confesses his love for Ej at his friends wedding that they attend as friends...and from there they become more...

GREAT STORY AND REALLY GOOD NARRATION...I ENJOYED THIS 100%

Awesome Narrator!

What does Meghan Kelly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I always enjoy Meghan's narration. Her sultry voice will add a different layer to any audio book.

Any additional comments?

The story was a bit predictable but I loved the tete a tete between the two main characters. It was witty and had me laughing out loud at times.

I Really Liked this Book

What made the experience of listening to More Than Water the most enjoyable?

The banter between the hero and the heroine. The narrator moved along at a nice pace. Even though the book covered some touchy family issues it didn't cover them in such a way as to be depressing.

What does Meghan Kelly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The inflections in her voice set the tone for different situations.

This audiobook was provided by the author free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Blast. I think receiving it for free was a good bet in this case. I would definitely read more books by Renee Ericson.

More than I expected!

From the description of the book I had no idea whether or not I would like the book but as it turns out, I did! The book begins with typical YA college situations and doesn't hint at the depth of feeling of the heroine, EJ. She reveals herself slowly as the story progresses and I found her character, as well as that of the hero, Foster, believable. Foster does not reveal much at all about himself to us which makes the ending much more of a surprise and I found it delightful to experience the progression of their relationship through it all. The book had a much more sensual feel brought out through the artistic nature of EJ. On the contrary, the science of attraction was analyzed because of Foster's observations.
Overall, the book kept my interest and I lost sleep over wanting to finish! The narrator was good also. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone looking for a YA with a bit extra depth.
