Reading the Ten Tiny Breaths series left me hanging on the edge of my seat for the next book by K.A. Tucker, so when Burying Water came out and it was the beginning of a book series, I knew I had to prepare myself for the an inevitable journey of the heart.
Burying Water captures your interest from the get go. The first book in the series will have you committing to the rest of the series, without even needing to go further than half way. Using the writing that has put her at the top of her game, Tucker shows readers why and how her writing touches the depths of your soul and perfectly captures the most sincere emotions.
Burying Water follows the lives of Jesse and Alexandra, as the book alternates between perspectives and the past and the present, we begin to get a clear picture of how their union began. Married to a prominent underworld figure Alex is shy, timid and very much off limits.
Which is the exact way Jesse meets her. As he is introduced to a world he is wary to be part of, his attraction to Alex keeps him around.
Burying Water is a story fuelled with love, hate, passion, tragedy and redemption. Every character in this book plays a significant role, where one cannot shine without the other. Tucker opens our eyes to the dynamics of the underworld; with its own rules and laws, we witness a connection like no other blossom under the most heart wrenching circumstances.
As the story flicks from past to present, we are witnessing two people fight the need to immerse themselves in their unparalleled connection. With the fear of being caught a very real possibility, the reader has no choice but to be enthralled to the very end, hoping for the very best.
“He said the truth is like water: it doesn’t matter how hard you try to bury it; it’ll always find some way back to the surface. Its resilient.”
