The USA TODAY bestselling author of the Ten Tiny Breaths series and Burying Water—which Kirkus Reviews called “a sexy, romantic, gangster-tinged page-turner”—returns with a new novel packed with romance, plot twists, and psychological suspense.
Ivy, a talented tattoo artist who spent the early part of her twenties on the move, is finally looking for a place to call home. She thinks she might have found it in San Francisco, but all that changes when she witnesses a terrible crime. She’s ready to pack up her things yet again, when a random encounter with a stranger keeps her in the city, giving her reason to stay after all.
That is, until Ivy discovers that their encounter wasn’t random. Not at all…
You know there are times you fall head over heels with the main male character? You want him to be a real person because, damn he is one hot specimen. Well with Surviving Ice, I’m actually the opposite. I am head over heels over Ivy Lee. This girl is perfect. I loved her even with her flaws.
Ivy loves to travel and never settles in one place for long. Now that she is visiting her favorite uncle in San Francisco, she is thinking for first time to settle. But something happens to her uncle and Ivy wants nothing to do with San Francisco. Although she is an expert at moving around, now Ivy has to take care of her uncle’s affair before setting off to a new adventure.
Comes in mysterious and hot Sebastian into the picture. He is a Navy Seal and is assigned a new job, that is Ivy Lee. He is to investigate and search for a VHS (yes, those old videotape cassettes) and maybe even find out if Ivy is aware of what’s on that tape.
Ivy is clueless of what her uncle was up to and is not aware of this VHS. As Sebastian comes into her life, she has a feeling he is not good, but the girl wants him bad. I wouldn’t blame her since he is a walking gorgeous creature. What she doesn’t know is that he is dangerous and is assigned to watch her.
Getting to know both Sebastian and Ivy was something else. They’re both very careful of what they do and they notice every single thing. It was strange that they both connected and had mutual feelings, yet fun. Ivy has many walls that protects her but only Sebastian was the only with the ability to put those barriers down. The same as Sebastian. He’s the best at his job and is very discreet. However, with Ivy, there was something special about her, that he even bust out telling her his real name. They were both tough characters and seeing them vulnerable with one another was just something special to read.
As a fan of K.A. Tucker, I’m always in awe how complex her writing is. No matter what she writes, I will somehow fall in love with her stories. Surviving Ice was simply another gorgeous story that everyone should read. So if you’re in the mood for some serious suspense story with a twist of love, then Burying Water series is a must!
