My rating: 5 of 5 stars
EJ Cunning, an art history major, dates musicians. Foster Blake, a chemical engineering major, can’t sing a tune. They’re not each other’s type. They’re coworkers.
Then, one night leads to sex—sex between friends—which leads to an agreement. It all seems so simple—but nothing ever is.
Many layers build a person’s facade.
Look into the depths for what’s hidden within.
It’s more than water. It’s a story—a living and breathing substance beyond the reflective surface.
This book was a random find for me, but I absolutely adored it!! I picked this book because I usually like the friends to lover stories. This book didn’t have the typical strong longtime friendship that suddenly turns to love. EJ and Fozzie meet in college where they both work at the library. They become friends/coworkers and of course, one night of passion leads them into the murky territory of friends with benefits. As the relationship continues, they both realize they have something special.
The banter between EJ and Fozzie is so cute and I love how they support each other and take an interest in each other’s passion. You can feel both of their passion for their work and it made them such incredible strong and compelling characters. Fozzie made being smart and geeky totally SEXY!! I was captivated by EJ’s art work and I love how Renee Ericson put actual photos of the water at the end of the book. I wish she would have actually embedded them throughout the book. The book was steamy but also light-hearted and fun. I also loved the glimpse into Fozzie’s mind at the end. I wish the entire story was dual POV, but I’ll take whatever I can get. It was a great way to end the story on such a high note with so much hope for the future. This book was such a pleasant surprise. It was more than just a story; it really is a work of art in itself.
