Review: Burying Water by K.A. Tucker

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.
Loved loved loved this book! It was SO different than what we have come to expect from K.A. Tucker but still with her amazing story telling abilities! Win -win for us readers.
This book is told in dual POV and alternates between past and present. We hear from Water (who at first is labeled as Jane Doe) in the present and Jesse brings everything full circle with his chapters from the past. It sounds confusing, I know, but it's not. The author did a brilliant job of weaving together the story and making it flow flawlessly. 

Water is an easy character to love. Not only is she brave but she is resilient too. Because when most people would've truly broke from all that she had endured, she stood tall. She battles back from the depths of hell and is stronger for it. It was an amazing transformation to experience as a reader. But when the memories start returning, will she crumble under the weight of them? 

Her connection with Jesse was like the cherry on top of an already amazing story. Their moments together were sweet, but with the undertone of sadness. I could not imagine being in Jesse's shoes and having to endure all that he goes through. But his love for Water is strong and unwavering. But will it be enough? 

And while this may be Water's book, Ginny deserves a mention because I fell in love with her. To see her blossoming as the story progressed was nothing short of amazing! She touched my heart as much as Water and her circle of loved ones did. 

I loved the suspense aspect of this book. It was like the chapters were crumbs, leading you to that one moment where everything finally makes sense. As the story progresses, you will start to believe you know where the author is taking you. But when you come to that pivotal moment in the book where you are given that remaining pieces that pulls it all together, NOTHING could've prepared you for the impact it will have on you. 

Just an amazing read from start to finish!
