Cover Design: Romantic Book Affairs
Release Date: February 2, 2017
Clay ran from his family, his career. From every dream he ever had. He ran until he crashed. Andi escaped the screams, the fists. The pain that knocked her down. She ran until she was thrown. Brought together by a world of darkness and deceit, all they have is each other. Freedom is what they want. Though it comes with a price. Because the second they stop running, they'll drown.
4 Star Review by Ashley
Well this new writing duo got me and they got me good. While I am no stranger to Gia Riley's work, Marni Mann is completely new to me. The writing was seamless- they wrote as one voice, even with the dueling points of view the story was told in. Drowning was dangerous and had me on the edge of my e-reader.
The first meeting between Andi and Adrian made my chest ache. Both of them suffering because of the devious actions of others. But it was their strength, their will to battle the odds and do what was necessary to make it better that won my heart. I loved the gentle way Adrian cared for Andi and how her fears let his protective side come out and gave him something else to fight for. It was Andi that surprised me the most. She may've come off as weak initially but she was far from it. She was never defeated and pushed through all the garbage life had thrown her way. And it was her resiliency that ultimately brought them out of the deep end.
Fear. Accusations. Hope. Danger. Sacrifice. Drowning had all of this and so much more. What I felt the most while reading with a racing heart was the love between Andi and Adrian. It was forged in the most unfortunate of circumstances but deep none the less. Their selflessness, with some help from a few unlikely sources, freed each other from the burdens of the past and allowed them to venture into a future that nobody but they would dictate.
Hats off to Gia Riley & Marni Mann for teaming up and giving me a book that gripped me by the heart on page one kept me guessing until the biter end. My fingers are crossed that there will be more collaborative work between these two in the future. And oh that ending! Just sigh. It made all the angst worth it.
