~ REVIEW: Chasing River: A Novel (Burying Waters #3) by KA Tucker ~

51HHmjhtUdL._SX320_BO1,204,203,200_SynopsisA suspense-driven New Adult romance novel from the USA TODAY bestselling 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, twenty-five-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.

christie review 5 star aHoly smokes!!!! Absolutely fell in love with this book! Amber has taken a much need break from her job and her life and is traveling abroad. She’s attempting to live a little outside of her comfort zone, not always thinking before she acts but being more spontaneous. However, that didn’t include getting herself killed which she almost does if not for the stranger with the beautiful eyes who saves her. When he leaves her after making sure she is okay, Amber can’t forget him. Something pulls her to him. And, her savior, River, can’t forget her either. Amber makes it quest to find him before leaving Ireland. She does find River who runs a family pub that is over 200 years old. This begins a life journey that each will never forget, but they are very different individuals. And as their time comes to a close, will it be the end of their romance, especially as she uncovers River’s secrets, or the beginning of the adventure of a lifetime?

Chasing River wasn’t just a journey to a faraway place for Amber, it was for me too. I felt like I was right there with her. K.A. Tucker’s descriptive writing pulled me right into the story and the characters. I especially enjoyed the historical aspect of the book. In fact, it made me want to visit Ireland; it truly is a magical place. I loved getting to know Amber and River, and how they each brought out something different in each other. River brought her spontaneous side out; she begins making some decisions with her heart and not just her mind. Amber brought out the desire for River to want something more for himself. And, yes, River is hot and seems to exude sex and strength from every pore in his body! And, the accent just adds to his irresistible charm. They are so different from one another in personality and family background. You would think they wouldn’t work together, but they really do!

Chasing River is part mystery, part romance, with some history thrown in to make this a perfect book! It’s a fast paced book filled with all kinds hidden gems and intrigue. There are two books before this one. Book 1 is Burying Water, and Book 2 is Chasing Rain. You might be able to read in any order, but I would recommend reading them in order because it gives background information on Amber and Ivy. Surviving Rain will be released in October. Let me say, October can’t get here quick enough.
