Review ~DROWNING by Marni Mann & Gia Riley


DROWNING 


MARNI MANN & GIA RILEY 








Clay ran from his family, his career. From every dream he ever had. He ran until he crashed. Andi escaped the screams, the fists. The pain that knocked her down. She ran until she was thrown. Brought together by a world of darkness and deceit, all they have is each other. Freedom is what they want. Though it comes with a price. Because the second they stop running, they'll drown





The first lines just impacted me 
For those who are still running. 
For those who have found home.
And what a run across the country Andi and Clay had to do...they're running from their violent pasts. Andi is running from horror of abuse and violence and Clay is running from himself. His tainted name. His friends. The law . And his own shadow , that threatens to blacken everyone unfortunate enough to be associated with him. 
They're both scared, both looking over their shoulders, both lowering the caps on their eyes, both too afraid to trust.

We’re nothing more than two misunderstood people who aren’t done fighting. And we’re not going to give up until we come out on top.

It's a terrible endeavour to leave your roots, your home to start afresh. They live day to day, hiding their identity and just wandering like driftwood waiting for tides to chart their future course. They find a moment you breathe with each other, so they find anchor and a shoulder to lean on amidst all the hurricane. That soon develops into love and find a tiny glimmer of normalcy till everything blows up in their faces!!
There's a constant source of strength for Andi, in the form of Charlie, who gives her validation, encouragement to get out and resolve to self preserve

As usual, Charlie doesn’t give himself enough credit. But he’s still everything I need him to be. He listens to my fears and offers advice, and when we’re both standing in front of the shelter, he says the most important things he ever could— with his eyes. That I’m worthy. That I’m a fighter. And that I can move on from this.

Brooks could be any one of the million abusive people who prey on innocent weak women , unable to defend themselves, yet Andi had at one point loved him, she's such a sweetheart, she still pities him

Watching Brooks self-destruct hurts. How I can look at a monster and still feel that, I have no idea. Maybe he messed me up more than I thought, but I remember our first date and the first time he made me feel responsible for his happiness. I was convinced there was no greater feeling in the world. Proud to have his hand on the small of my back, I let him lead me wherever he wanted to go. Because, as long as I had him next to me, I was invincible. I’ll miss that Brooks— always.

Maybe that's the dilemma every victim faces !
It's a great story , very slick and thrilling.
Marni and Gia bring endearing characters to life and the story shall stay with you for a long time !

Blurb

I’ve learned that not everything is what it seems. If you start to look too close, you uncover things people don’t want you to see. It’s why I hide. It’s why no one knows the real me. But he sees me. He sees the darkness in my heart but he’s not afraid, because he’s like me. They say opposites attract, but we’re proof that like-and-like are a far more potent combination.

Novalee Clarke is hiding from a past she wants to leave behind, and Jacen Kensington is running from his.
 


The thing about hiding and running is eventually the thing you’re trying to escape catches up to you.

And when it does?

It changes everything.

Hi. I’m Micalea. Ma-call-e-uh. Weird name, I know. My mom must’ve known I was going to be odd even in the womb. I’ve written a lot of books. Like a lot. Don’t ask me how many, I don’t remember at this point. I have an unhealthy addiction to Diet Coke but I can’t seem to break the habit.

I’m God’s gift to women. What can I say?
When I’m out and about, I catch the ladies checking out the goods.
I’m at the beach today, and my sister has her posse of friends with her.
One, in particular, is beyond beautiful, with a killer body to match.
"Justin, don’t you remember me?” she asks in the most sensual voice I’ve heard in a long, long time.
"Sloane Hart, is that you?” I utter in disbelief. It’s my little sister’s best friend, all grown up and filled out in all the right places.
Needless to say, I don’t waste a minute getting her alone.
After I take her out to dinner, I get her back to my place for a little slap and tickle session.
Things get hot and heavy and we’re just about to do the dirty deed when I sense something isn’t right. She’s tense.
“Can you go slow and easy?” she asks timidly.
She’s a virgin?
I don’t mess with virgins anymore, not since high school.
Next. I’m moving on. I don’t want Sloane, dear Sloane, getting stuck on me.
After a couple of months, I’m usually done and over it. I tell her I’m doing her a favor.
The problem is that I can’t stop thinking about her. When I see other guys hitting on her, it makes my blood boil.
This can’t continue. Sloane Hart is getting under my skin.

Sloane

I was invisible to him.
Justin Harlow is my best friend's brother, and I’ve been in love with him for as long as I can remember.
Fast forward ten years later, and I’m at the Harlow family's beach party.

Mr. God’s gift to women notices me today.
The way his eyes rake over my body from head to toe tells me he wants me.
He says I’ve grown up and filled out in all the right places.
He’s dangerous for my heart and my body.
I know I’m in trouble.

Excerpt

Copyright 2017 – All Rights Reserved

“I love being with you,” Wyatt says as if he’d read my thoughts.

I squeeze his hand. “I love being with you, too. We have fun together, right?”

“Always, Trinity.” He stops and glances down at me with a serious expression. “Not just the sex—although, that’s fucking awesome.”

“Fuck yeah, it is,” I tease, jabbing my finger in his gut. That was stupid. His stomach’s like a brick wall. “Ow. I think I broke a nail.”

“Nutty girl.” He tugs me along a faint path through the woods. The trail follows a small stream, and I keep stopping to see if there are any fish.

“We don’t have any poles,” Wyatt says, stopping to check the water with me.

“What, you can’t play Tarzan and catch one with your bare hands for me?”

He busts up laughing. “I can, if that’s what you want.” He stops and pulls me close. “What do you think about owning a cabin up here? Like this one?”

“We just built a house. You want to move here?” Is he suggesting leaving the club? I can’t imagine Wyatt wanting to do that.

“No. A vacation place. To get away from everything when we need to.”

“Oh. Sure,” I say off the cuff, certain he’s not serious, but his next words knock me sideways.

“It would make a nice wedding present for my girl.”

“What? Did you…is it ours?”

“Not yet. I wanted to see if we liked it first. The owner’s had it on the market for a while, so I think we can get it for a good price.”

The way he keeps saying we, even though I haven’t really done anything to contribute to our finances, I don’t know, it does something to me. It’s a silly thing to fixate on at the moment, but I can’t help it.

“I love it here. But I love wherever we go as long as we’re together.”

He gives me a soft smile and kisses my forehead.

“Really, Wyatt. Whatever you want is fine by me.”

“I’ve seen the pictures of your dream house on the beach,” he teases.

“Mmm…a hut in Belize where you can run around in a loin cloth all day would be perfection,” I joke back.

His mouth lifts into a sexy smirk. “That might be a little out of our price range right now.”

“Cabin in the woods works for me, too. I’ll follow you anywhere.”

He takes my hand again. We traipse through the woods together, enjoying the quiet. My stomach growls and I’m about to tell Wyatt I want to head back, when he suddenly stops.

“What?” I giggle and he shushes me.

All the fun is sucked right out of our morning.
