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.
Originally from the Midwest, she now resides in a small town just outside of Boston with her husband and three children.
Most winters, Renee can be found on the slopes of the White Mountains skiing with her family. During the summer months, she likes to spend every spare minute at the beach soaking up the sea air. All those moments in between, she is talking to imaginary characters and caring for her children.
This author is new to me but I really liked my first book from Renee Ericson. I thought More Than Water was a tempting and sweet romance. The characters were interesting and clever – I truly enjoyed experiencing EJ and Foster falling in love.
EJ and Foster are university students who bond while working in the library. They challenge one another and this verbal foreplay creates a fact that neither can deny – that they connect on a sexual level. Yet, neither expects the seriousness of their friendship or a deeper connection after they initially meet. It is awesome. An added bonus – their scenes together are filled with quick wit and banter that leaves you smiling as well as laughing out loud.
However, their worlds seem completely incompatible. He’s a focused engineer and a bit geeky. She is a lively artist and one who likes to push boundaries. Yet the fit together perfectly. They are a fun duo who seem to be completely different but at their core they are very similar. They just do not realize how very alike their lives are until late in their relationship with one another.
It makes for a humorous and heartfelt journey to their happily every after.
I thought EJ and Foster’s story was an amazing love story. It was just the right balance of friendship, passion and humor. I highly recommend More Than Water and I look forward to reading more from Renee.
