This is my second book that I read from Author K.A. Tucker, right after reading her gorgeous book “A simple wild”. I choose this novel because the title was very much intriguing and on Goodreads, she stated that:
Title: Burying Water
Author: K.A Tucker
Publication Date: October 7th 2014
Shelves: Contemporary; Romance; Sports
Format: Paperback, 354 pages
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.
Well, now I am a bit confused on my feelings regarding this reading. I enjoyed the Characters, I enjoyed the story, even if it wasn’t that great of a background story, but I assume everything comes back to how it was supposed to be. I always try to live the books I am reading, and try after that to get my own perspective of it, so that is why I am left a bit uncertain on how to proceed with this review.
Let’s start off with what I feel like it may bother some of you out there, that there is cheating on this book, but soon you start to understand that this 22 year old Alexandria Petrova, married to this Russian Mob guy is actually entitled to a pass. She is abused, beaten and mistreated by her husband, and also cheated on, repeatedly, right in front of her face and his friends / business partners. Things change when Jesse comes along, and soon they start to have feelings for each other.
A lot of things we don t know about Alex (Alexandria), because it’s written from Jesse’s POV, but soon we find out that she has a very bad accident and ends up with no memory.
Things get a bit confusing in the beginning, since there is a lot of now and then, but quickly you realize that the chapters “then” are contouring their story from before her accident.
I enjoyed their love, but the sad part is that I enjoyed more her relationship with the lady that ends up taking her in, offering her house to accommodate her. Maybe I was actually leading to read something more heart-breaking, but overall it was a good read even if it was a bit slow.
“He said the truth is like that water: it doesn’t matter how hard you try to bury it; it’ll always find some way back to the surface. It’s resilient.”
