Synopsis: The blue water I sank through was angelic, quiet, peaceful...

Whitney is a vivacious, highly spirited 17-year-old girl. Her motto, “Live life to the fullest,” is derailed when the young man who’s captured her attention turns out to be the son of a the drug tycoon who provided the drugs that killed her brother. Whitney believes she needs to heal from her first heartache, not knowing she is a part of a devious trade— one that violates human rights, and she has been… since the day she was born.

Blue Waters is the first Novella in Tainted Waters and begins a story of deception, corruption, self discovery, and love with all that it demands you sacrifice…

There was a beauty in dying that day… 


-MY REVIEW-

"A lake was killing me that day. No, I take that back; my decisions were killing me that day, and he knew what decision had been made."

This is the second book by India R. Adams that I have read, and I have loved both of them. There is something so unique about her books, and that makes them such a joy to read.

In this book we follow Whitney as she meets Crush, and they fall in love. This book talks about violence and drugs, but this book has just as much romance and humor as any India R. Adams book.

Have I mentioned that I love Adams's writing? It's very unique and surreal. It is beautiful, and funny, and heartbreaking (sometimes all at the same time). This makes the characters so much more fun and likeable. I do wish that this book was a little bit longer (mainly because I wanted more), so that way events wouldn't have had to been so rushed. Also, I wish that I got to know the characters more! They seemed so cool, so hopefully we'll learn more about them in book two. :)

So overall I loved this book! While the writing was the best part of this book, an interesting story line and characters will leave you wanting more.

  1. Thank you for your review - you've confirmed my chief grizzle with novellas though. Too many of them try to cover novel-length stories and squeeze them into a shortened form - it's a growing problem with the rise and rise of this book form that I thoroughly dislike:(.

    1. I don't think that it's a horrible thing, but I do wish that they were series (like these). Thanks for stopping by! :)
