Title: Drowning Instinct
Author: Ilsa J. Bick
Jenna Lord’s first sixteen years were not exactly a fairytale. Her father is a controlling psycho and her mother is a drunk. She used to count on her older brother—until he shipped off to Afghanistan. And then, of course, there was the time she almost died in a fire.
There are stories where the monster gets the girl, and we all shed tears for his innocent victim. (This is not one of those stories either.)
Mitch Anderson is many things: A dedicated teacher and coach. A caring husband. A man with a certain… magnetism.
And there are stories where it’s hard to be sure who’s a prince and who’s a monster, who is a victim and who should live happily ever after. (These are the most interesting stories of all.)
Drowning Instinct is a novel of pain, deception, desperation, and love against the odds—and the rules.
I just started this book so I haven’t formed any opinions about it yet. I heard about it from Blook Girl’s blog though and she really enjoyed it. Since she has such good taste I imagine I’ll enjoy it too. The subject matter isn’t light and happy but I have a happier book line up after this. In the meantime, I’ll have my tissues on standby.
