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 listen to way too much music and hedgehogs have taken over my life. Crazy is the word that best sums up my life, but it’s the good kind of crazy and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
