A suspense-driven New Adult romance novel from the USA Today best-selling 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, 25-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.

I am a fan of K.A. Tucker who is a kick ass writer but I found this book lacking. Unless you have a penchant for or some fascination with Ireland I would not recommend this one. It was missing some umph for me. The story was too slow to unfold and I really had to put in the effort to push through. I could not relate to Amber as a female character - she was a bit too perfect and boring and when Ivy came on the scene and started exposing Amber as the most popular girl at school when she was young kind etc I liked her even less. The relationship between Amber and River was also difficult to believe - they seemed to have very little in common and I really was not clear why they would have a 'deep connection' or fall for each other.
The best thing that came out of this book for me is meeting Ivy's character who is epic and I've just started reading Surviving Ice which already is proving to be a MUCH better book.

Amazing! 5 stars is just not enough!!

This author s extremely talented. This is the second book I have read/listened to by her. I was surprised at how well the story progressed. The story line is original... the character development is well plotted! There is no draw back to this listen. The story unfolds, is not full of hot sex scenes... the sex is there ... just realistic... and the minor characters are also well plotted. To say I loved this book is an understatement. I don't say this often, but I would BUY this book.CREDIT WORTHY!!!!!! The narration was perfect. The story line original... you become invested in the characters..... Brava Ms. Tucker... this is truly a hit and worthy of being a best seller!

Unexpected Irish Romance

STORY (contemporary romance) - Amber is the perfect all-American girl vacationing in Ireland. River and his brother are bartenders who manage the family pub in Dublin. Through a dangerous twist of fate, they meet and fall in love. This is a sweet story of love found when one least expects it and how Amber and River figure things out. The background story is that of River's older brother, Aengus, who has ties to the IRA and other criminal behavior in Ireland.

I enjoyed the romance and the Irish setting, but there's nothing particularly new or fresh to this story. The characters are likeable and fall in love, and there's the usual back story to fill in the gaps.

PERFORMANCE - This book has two narrators, a female who reads Amber's chapters and a male who reads River's, so you get alternating viewpoints as the story progresses. Each of them does a good job.

OVERALL - The relationship between Amber and River is highly sexual, yet the sex scenes are relatively non-explicit. There is a fair amount of cursing and F-words and a small amount of non-graphic violence. Recommended primarily for females over 18, due to the romance and its sexual nature.
