A suspense-driven New Adult romance novel from the USA TODAY bestselling author of Ten Tiny Breaths and Burying Water.

Armed with two years' worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.

Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn't let her die, but he also can't be identified at the scene--so, he fled. Back to his everyday life of running his family's pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Pushing her away would be the smart move.

Maybe it's because he saved her life, or maybe it's because he's completely different from everything she's left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn't the kind of girl to chase after anyone.

And River isn't the kind of guy she'd want to catch.

22/9 - A good romance. Not quite a four, but definitely more engaging than a three, probably a 3.5, but I'm feeling generous so it's four.

I liked Amber and I liked River. I wasn't so excited about his name, although I thought Amber's father's quips were hilarious and sounded just like something my dad would say (woe betide anyone who's unlucky enough to be named Bob or Ben because Down or Dover will be added to your name with embarrassing frequency). I don't know much about the IRA or Irish history so the little bit of history I got with the romance was very welcome, especially the author's note at the beginning. The sexual tension between Amber and River was fantastic, especially when River found Amber's 'To Do List', but the actual sex scenes were a bit of a letdown and then, after the first scene all the tension between River and Amber seemed to just fizzle out. I was quite disappointed, I had been expecting scorching hot, something resembling Samantha Young's On Dublin Street), but it was more like a light beach read along the lines of Jill Shalvis' Lucky Harbour books. Definitely more angst than Lucky Harbour, but on a similar level in regards to the scorchiness of the sex scenes. Will definitely be looking out for the other books in the series.

K.A. Tucker is one of my Go-To authors (and she's local and super nice, too boot!).

I've loved everyone of her books that I've read and recommend them all over the place. This book is one of my favourites--certainly my favourite of this series. I do recommend that you read through this series in order so that you get the most out of the story. Start with Burying Water.
