  SURVIVING ICE Synopsis: 

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.

Review of  Becoming Rain (Burying Water #2)
Review of  Chasing River (Burying Water, #3) 

Surviving Ice is a suspense ridden tale which engrosses the reader, while captivating them with a titillating and slow building romance between our main characters.

Ivy is a drifter. Never staying in one place long enough to form attachments or put down roots. Currently residing in San Francisco, working at her uncle's tattoo shop. Ivy finds herself unsettled after her uncle's brutal murder, of which she was a witness to. When her flight instincts kick in, she becomes perturbed, because she must settle his affairs before taking off. 

"Ice is beautiful and enticing; cold and hard and uncompromising."

I loved the way K.A. Tucker portrayed Ivy. Despite being a tough nut to crack, Ivy's vulnerabilities shone throughout the story and her personality was something to be admired. She was independent and strong willed, fierce and seriously intense. Yet, surrounding her tough exterior, she was a soft hearted person, looking for a home. Somewhere to call her own, someone to cherish and simply WANT her.

"Who are you, really Sebastian? Besides the stranger who strolled in and seized my heart?"

Sebastian is a former Navy Seal. After an "other than honourable" discharge from the military, he has found success working in private security for an old military friend and mentor. When he receives the call to return to his home state of California for a special mission, he returns home to work a job that will be the catalyst for changing his life forever.

“She’s lethal but sexy, quiet but strong.” 

Ivy became his mission, and in the end they built a friendship and a desire so intense that Sebastian's mission changed, and Ivy became his everything.

Truths will be revealed, old friendships destroyed and loyalties will be questioned. Family ties will become stronger and love will prevail. These two, Ivy and Sebastian, were/are the perfect pair. They made my heart soar, gave me goosebumps, and ultimately made me understand that even the toughest of persons, always need love. Never judge a book by it's cover. Ya know what I mean lol.

K.A. Tucker you outdid yourself. You hooked me from my first meeting with Ivy. I love these tough women. So vibrant and full of energy. Thank you for letting me experience Ivy.
