Publisher's Summary

Ivy, a talented tattoo artist who spent the early part of her 20s on the move, is finally looking for a place to call home. She thinks she might have found it in San Francisco, but all that changes when she witnesses a terrible crime. She's ready to pack up her things yet again when a random encounter with a stranger keeps her in the city, giving her reason to stay after all.

That is until Ivy discovers that their encounter wasn't random. Not at all....

S York excellent...O. Song awful narrator!

The storyline of Ivy was dead on for her character based on previous books. A bad-a** ex-navy seal is basically the only person in this world who would attract Ivy's attention so I found that to be realistic. I actually enjoy all of K.A. Tucker's books but this particular version performed by Olvia Song was almost unbearable. Every time "Ivy"'s chapter came up and she spoke in any type of "male" voice it made me want to turn it off - yes its that bad. Sebastian York is phenomenal as usual and I wish Elizabeth Louise was the narrator for Ivy hence the 3 stars for performance.

Not as good as the others in this series

This book was okay. I have really enjoyed the first three and was surprised this one didn't measure up to the others. The female narrator doing a male voice was awful. They shouldn't try so hard to sound like a man. Ruins it because it sounds so cheesy.

I really wanted to like this book.....

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story is ok, the erotic scenes kind of tepid

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Not very interesting. I made it through 2/3 and finally gave it up. The protagonists are too much alike to be interesting

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I love Olivia Song's voice. That said, the criticisms of her forcing a male voice are valid.

Did Surviving Ice inspire you to do anything?

No.

Any additional comments?

I was led to this title after reading "He Will be my Ruin." THAT is a great book by the same author. I've read it twice now and enjoyed every minute.
PASS on this title and get HE WILL BE MY RUIN.

Not my fav of hers, but mostly enjoyable

This was good for the most part. I am not a big suspense person, but this really held my interest. I didn't love the female main character, I couldn't relate to her at all. Also, the female narrator has a nice female voice, but an awful male voice. The male narrator was great, as usual.

Love KA Tucker

KA Tucker is a genius. I buy everything she writes and she knocks it out of the park!! So well written, complex and suspenseful. Loved these two and the secondary characters.

I really tried to like this one..........

Could have definitely not read this book and been ok with it. I love KA Tucker but the last 2 Water series books were not worth the time. It would have been cool if all this Russian mafia, IRA, Alliance stuff all somehow intertwined and gave you a big AHA moment but nothing even close to that. This was a disappointing end to what could have been an amazing series.

Good story but the narrator's male voices AWFUL

if you liked the earlier books in the series you won't be disappointed, though the first was the best. I hate it when a woman narrator does goofy male voices (and when a male narrator makes all women sound like Valley Girls) and that was very distracting. Please, more attention to the performances please! these are not cheap

it took a bit to get into it, but was good

it was hard to get into it in he beginning and I didn't like the narrator voice when the girl was trying to talk for the man, It was difficult to hear. but the book itself was amazing as all the others in this series!
