Review ... Surviving Ice by KA Tucker

Surviving Ice
Burying Water #4
by K.A. Tucker 

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 Lee, a talented tattoo artist who spent the early part of her twenties on the move, is looking for a place to call home. She thinks she might have finally found it working in her uncle’s tattoo shop in San Francisco. But all that changes when a robbery turns deadly, compelling her to pack up her things yet again.

When they need the best, they call him. That’s why Sebastian Riker is back in California, cleaning up the mess made after a tattoo shop owner with a penchant for blackmail got himself shot. But it’s impossible to get the answers he needs from a dead body, leaving him to look elsewhere. Namely, to the twenty-something-year-old niece who believes this was a random attack. Who needs to keep believing that until Sebastian finds what he’s searching for.

Ivy has one foot out of San Francisco when a chance encounter with a stranger stalls her departure. She’s always been drawn to intense men, so it’s no wonder that she now finds a reason to stay after all, quickly intoxicated by his dark smile, his intimidating strength, and his quiet control.

That is, until Ivy discovers that their encounter was no accident—and that their attraction could be her undoing.

Well, Ivy Lee definitely doesn't lead a boring life. I am so happy to get to know her better after really meeting her character in Chasing River. 

Ivy is one tough chick on the outside and really on the inside too, but all it takes is one Sebastian Riker to thaw the ice around her. I really loved the way that Ivy was when she was around Sebastian and I loved the way that he was with her too. They are so much alike in their nomad and solitary ways, Sebastian a little more than Ivy. I am glad that they both were able to change each other enough for them to want something different out of life. I really enjoyed that Sebastian isn't at all what I thought he would be and that he actually had some morals about him and that he had smarts to always be ahead of any given situation. His character was easy to connect with and I loved his honesty even if it meant revealing something that could crumble all the things that he wanted. These two characters just flowed so well together and I really liked the way that they were able to read each others limits. 

This book is filled with the same suspense and intrigue as the previous books. I loved the intensity of the storyline and the fact that it kept me guessing what would happen next. There was never a dull moment throughout this book. The secondary characters were pretty great too. I liked Dakota even though she was a bit out there and I loved Bobby and the rest of the bikers that really seemed to be a great support for Ivy. 

This is a MUST read in the Burying Water series.
