Drowning (Tears of Sin Series) by Rachel Firasek Book Review

*Drowning is a New Adult Contemporary Romance suited for 18+ due to some violence, language, and sexual content*

"I dare you."

Those words would change adrenaline junkie, Alice Harrison's life forever. She's a party girl that doesn't believe in love until she meets a man that only writes about it.

Seth James escaped his overbearing father and moved into one of the James family's vacant condos, hoping to create the music he loves in peace. But the fragile calm he's envisioned shatters when a tiny woman with a world full of energy bounces out of the elevator and nearly takes him out.

With the patience of a saint, Seth seeks the dark that keeps Alice from enjoying life. He challenges her to exorcise the demons in her past in order to discover the true meaning of love. But when the walls fall down, the hidden deceptions will bare the ugly truth about a woman drowning in sorrow and a man who may not know how to be her hero.

My Review


Some stories aren't black and white."

Just like some lives.

Secrets can often be more harm then good. But for those keeping them - Life must go on.

Scars aren't always shown on the outside - often it takes longer for the ones on the inside to heal longer. This story tells of dark, dirty secrets but how love can be found despite the past. It shows how light can be found within the darkness......

Drowning was certainly one of the most intense books I have read of this authors, she touches bases with so many real issues in life within this story, as dark as they may seem, yet so very realistic and heartbreaking.

A rollercoaster of emotions is put forth, giving the reader a lot of depth into the lives of the characters within the storyline.

Drowning is an Unpredictable story, and at times intense and edgy, with a haunting and dark storyline yet filled with light at the end of that dark tunnel.

It will pull you along at a very fast pace. This book is the first of this series - a fascinating read, filled with unbelievable heat, tasteful yet tantalizing smexy moments, and filled with an array of in-depth characters.

You will feel the heartache, love and hurt within the pages and the author has done a superb job of portraying all her characters in there dark and light moments. Showing us true emotion and strong character traits.

Drowning is not for the timid with the reference to certain moments and scenes during the storyline. (No spoilers) But it will certainly have you intrigued till no end.

I love all this authors work - this is her darkest story yet, but behind the pages you will find light in the darkness.
