Oh, and in case you’re curious, love is nose to nose, cheek to cheek, two fingers to two fingers. And love is now the one thing I can’ step away from.
Now, I know most of you checked out the “Drowning in You” cover reveal back in February, but for those of you who haven’t, here is a breif book description for you!
Crushed by a tragedy
Charlee May’s been crushing on Dexter Hollingworth since she was fifteen. Five years later, a horrific skiing disaster at Mason’s Ski Lift Resort leaves her millionaire dad critically injured and her mom dead at the hands of Dexter operating the lifts. Charlee is suddenly the sole caretaker for her little brother while their world falls apart.
Dexter couldn’t be more different from Charlee. He’s tattooed, avoids exclusive relationships and his Dad has a fair share of illegal dealings. With Dexter’s reputation, almost everyone believes he planned the Mason’s skiing disaster.
And after all these years he’s still crushing on Charlee May, the girl who’s too good for him.
When this cruel twist of fate ties Charlee’s family and Dexter’s reputation together, Charlee and Dexter wonder if their feelings are reciprocated, while Dexter discovers his dad is trying to steal the May’s millionaire fortune.
But like an addiction, one look, one touch, one taste—they’re hooked no matter the consequences.
Now that everyone has a little background, let me just say this…. OH MY GOD! I had some expectations with this book considering Rebecca’s last novel, while I enjoyed it, still had room for improvement. With “Drowning in You,” Rebecca absolutely blew me out of the water! I’m talking mind blown and left wanting more! Yes, there are a few places I could see a change or two, or maybe a different road that should have been taken, but you know what, the overall story and the characters just make it all worth while.
I just – I just want to be ten again rather then twenty and not haing to act like I’m in control and – oh, how I hate the “R” word – responsible.
Rebecca, once again, was able to make a heart wrenching story into one that leaves readers wanting more. Charlee May and Dexter Hollingworth both have to struggle through different, and yet very similar life changing situations (considering the two events are intertwined with each other), and at such young ages (20 & 21) I couldn’t even imagine what they had to go through, and yet, I felt like I was in their shoes as I was reading. Yes, I know that last sentence contradicts itself, and I don’t care, because its true. Rebecca was, once again, able to put her readers into the shoes of her characters, and that right there is a sign of a true writer in my opinion.
I only regret not being able to read it when I first purchased it! Once I had the time to sit and read, it took me a total of 2 days to finish, it was that good, I just couldn’t put it down! Rebecca, this is a shout out to you, never doubt your abilities as a writer! Just from the time between “Precise” and “Drowning in You,” your writing and story telling abilities have grown so much! Keep up the good work, and I can’t wait to dive right into your next piece of work!
