Welcome to our Tour Stop for
Chasing River (Burying Water #3) by K.A. Tucker
hosted by Inkslinger PR!
Be sure to enter the giveaway found at the end of the post!
Armed with two years' worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.
Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn't let her die, but he also couldn't risk being identified at the scene—so, he ran. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Chasing her off would be the smart move.
Maybe it's because he saved her life, or maybe it's because he's completely different from everything she's left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.
And River isn't the kind of guy she'd want to catch.

I couldn’t find a trailer, so here’s a song!
I am such a huge, huge fan of K.A. Tucker’s so of course I had to jump at the opportunity to review book 3 in the Burying Water series. I adored books 1 and 2, and Chasing River (Burying Water #3) did not disappoint! Throw in a sexy bad boy with a wicked Irish accent and…OMG…
Amber Welles finds herself on an adventure around the world where she is slowly ticking things off on her bucket list. But her time in Dublin, Ireland is one that she will not forget. Could it be because she almost got killed by a bomb that goes off in a public park where she just happens to be walking through? Probably. Could it be because of the hot guy who saved her life from said bomb and who, in turn, sustained an injury because of this act? Most likely.
As fate would have it, upon one of Amber’s excursions, she sees the crest that she remembers about her white knight from a tourist’s t-shirt. So what’s the next logical step? Track him down of course!
River Delaney’s life is not perfect, and it’s not made any easier thanks to his oldest brother and his ties to the IRA. And River couldn’t predict that by trying to stop his brother from planting a bomb at a public park that he would also be saving the life of an American tourist. Thinking that it was a onetime encounter, River continues on with running the family pub. But who should walk through the doors? Someone River thought he would never, in a million years, think that he would see again.
I’m gonna throw this out there…Aside from a man in uniform (because *swoon*), a man with an accent is dead sexy. So of course River was totally swoon worthy in my head. Throw in the “bad boy” aspect and whoo hooo, you have yourself a new book boyfriend, people!
Amber, on the other hand, was a character that I slowly grew to like. I felt that she felt she was “too good” for some things…like it was beneath her. That annoyed me. I did like how she grew as a character in the book and was able to leave her past behind her, and move forward with her life.
The connection between River and Amber is one that you can’t miss. There was a lot of flirtatious back and forth, but they don’t act on it right away, which left me screaming in my head for them to just get it on already. But as I’ve been told (and obvi have a hard time practicing), patience is a virtue and with patience came a super sweet love story that was unfolding before my very eyes.
The appearances of past characters is again something that happens in this book, and I love it! I love when characters make guest appearances in books, and this one did not disappoint. But with the old also comes the new, and I adored a lot of the new characters that were introduced in Chasing River by K.A. Tucker.
The writing continues the same as the first two books in that it is a lot darker, but not at all disappointing! Author K.A. Tucker continues to wow me with her stories and writing style, and her characters are all unforgettable in their own way (the good AND the bad).
If you’re looking for a read where the main character finds herself, this is the book for you. If you’re looking for a book where the male lead will sweep you off your feet, dude, this is the book for you. Don’t hesitate in picking up a copy of Chasing River by K.A. Tucker, and while you’re at it, pick up the first two books in this series. You will not be disappointed.
