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, a talented tattoo artist who spent the early part of her twenties on the move, is finally looking for a place to call home. She thinks she might have found it in San Francisco, but all that changes when she witnesses a terrible crime. She’s ready to pack up her things yet again, when a random encounter with a stranger keeps her in the city, giving her reason to stay after all.

That is, until Ivy discovers that their encounter wasn’t random. Not at all…

The Review: Surviving Ice is the final book in the Burying Water series by K.A. Tucker and I have to admit, it’s a sad moment seeing this series end.

Surviving Ice is Ivy’s book. Since the start Ivy has always been an interesting secondary character who seems to pops up in each book so I’m glad she’s finally had her story told because I’ve always wanted to get to know her better. We last saw her in Ireland but now she’s back in San Francisco working at her Uncle tattoo shop and finally feel like she’s home and that’s all down to her Uncle. But when Ivy witnesses her Uncle’s murder everything changes – she can’t get out of San Francisco quick enough but first she has to settle her Uncle’s affairs. But as she does, she discovers her Uncle was tied up in something that someone is wanting keeping quiet – no matter the cost.

Ivy and Sebastian’s story is similar to the other stories in regards to the romantic suspense. Their story brings romance, danger, mystery, suspense all rolled into one and provides an entertaining read. I was really looking forward to reading Ivy’s story and I have to say while I did enjoy it, it wasn’t my favourite out of the series, I didn’t feel as connected to her as the other previous characters or even the love interest, but don’t let that put you off as it’s still definitely worth a read and I’m glad I’ve read it.

Ivy has always been a strong character and her strength definitely shows throughout her story. She’s always been independent and never relies on anyone but herself. She’s trust few little people and is always looking for her next place to call home, but it’s not until Sebastian comes along that she starts to realise what she was really looking for - someone to share the happy times with and it does take her a while to realise this. But once she does, the moments between her and Sebastian are touching and sometimes very intense. As a love interest, Sebastian was okay. Again, I didn't feel that pull to him as much as the other guys from this series but I felt he fit with Ivy perfectly. 

In all, I'm sad to see this series go but I'm excited to see what comes next from K.A. Tucker! 

3.5 Stars!
