Roxie and Jen’s Review
Every now and then we take a little detour from our ARC schedule because a new release peaks our interest. As soon as we read the blurb of Thicker Than Water we knew we wanted to read it. And we are so glad we did!! We loved it!! What a beautiful, emotional journey, amazing writing and storytelling at its best. This book is definitely on our top 2017 reads book list!!
From the very first chapter we were drawn in. Reece Carras has this incredible pull as soon as he appears and we were smitten and we just met him. Truly Lucia Vega didn’t have a chance when it came to resisting Reece. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
Lucia Vega self publishes her first book that becomes a bestseller. She is being wooed by Hollywood studios for the screenplay rights. She is hesitant. Success and fame come with a heavy price tag for a girl like her. It’s a risk she is not willing to take until Reece Carras makes an offer. He is the Chief Executive at Artemis Film. He is an ex Olympic swimmer, Hollywood royalty. He wants to make this story into a movie badly. His reasons are personal and complicated a bit.
These two… sigh you know that connection. The one that’s undeniable, the one that gives you flutters in your belly as you read. Yup that’s the one with these two. It was beautiful how Lucia and Reece went from strangers to friend to lovers. Every glimpse, look, touch. The first kiss…. We were swooning and beaming. We loved Lucia, she is young but such a strong character.
“I see you, Lucia. The scarred places. And the beautiful places.”
Her past makes her wise beyond her years. She vulnerable yet confident. And Reece, god this man had as in a panty melting frenzy. He is successful, rich, famous, older, confident. He has the world at his feet, literally yet he is humble and genuine.
We fell in love with him completely and when he starts with his dirty talk, seriously we were done for.
“I’ll never be finished with you. But when I fuck you for the first time, I want you in my bed…”
This is not your typical love story. Dylan Allen managed to take a very current and controversial issue and created a unforgivable and real love story that not only made our hearts sing, but made us think. Made us talk, made us start a conversation. We learned from it. It was eye opening and sexy, a really unusual combo that, for us made, this book a must read.
