{Review} Burying Water by K.A. Tucker

The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away.

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.

The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.

I literally just finished this book... 

Last night I stayed up reading until 2:30am and the ONLY reason I went to bed was because my Kindle died, and I was too lazy to get out of bed and find my charger. I should have known better though, because even after my Kindle turned black, I couldn't get these characters out of my head. I laid awake until 330 just going over the possible scenarios that could have taken place. Some of the situations I guessed correctly, some were better left alone to experience for myself through the author's words. 

K.A intricately wove this story in such a way that it was like an onion, each layer had to be peeled back, one at a time, to get to the core of what was was going on. As a reader, I knew what was happening but didn't really understand all the little pieces and what they meant until the end. It all made sense later but even after finishing, I sit here and wonder if I really caught all the little pieces that she put in there?? 
This book could probably be read over and over again and pick up even more things that I may have missed the first time around. 

The puzzle pieces and multifaceted layers weren't the only things I fell in love with. The details, the writing, the emotions, OH THE EMOTIONS!!... everything you expect and crave from K.A was there, written in this book, and I was captivated! 

It was also so different from anything I have read lately and yet, everything I love about books was in there too. It told a story that lifted my heart but also crushed it with the same blow. When I got to the end, I didnt want to say goodbye!! I didn't want to stop reading!! That's how I know I have found a good book, because I can't deal with telling the characters goodbye...

As if you can't tell by my review, I really loved this book and I recommend it to anyone who loves K.A's books as much as I do or heck, if you just love books in general then this book is for you...

Overall, I give this book 5 "I never wanted this book to end" Stars!!!!
