Water: Book One of The Water Series

Can she resist the call…  Can he save her…

What would you do if you were forced to face your darkest fears and open yourself up to something you never imagined possible?

This is the situation that Cora Reed finds herself in the summer she heads to Camp Crystal. There she is forced to face her phobia of water, coming face to face with the night her world was shattered and water filled her nightmares. But strangely, the scariest thing for her isn’t the thought of swimming, it’s Darrien. Not just because he’s determined to get her into the water, but because there is a connection to him that terrifies and excites her at the same time. But, Darrien is hiding something and Cora is determined to find out what. After watching it tear her family apart, Cora has sworn she would never fall in love. Will Darrien be the one to make her break that promise?

What would you do if finding the thing you wanted most destroyed the life you had worked so hard for?

Darrien Locke came to Camp Crystal to do a job; and once he sets his mind to something, there’s nothing stopping him. But, when Darrien meets Cora the hot-tempered girl sparks something in him that he long thought dead. Soon, Darrien’s feelings threaten to ruin everything. His job, his position and his authority back home are all in jeopardy, but the worst thing is that Darrien is starting to not care about any of that. What his life once was, was over the moment he met her. Now, all that matters is keeping her safe, for a dark power is reaching out from the deep for Cora. As Cora’s connection to darkness grows stronger, Darrien, more than ever, is determined to see his job through. This time he has everything to lose.

Cora holds the real world story, while Darrien the fantasy. What happens when their two worlds collide and a power rises from the deep that sets both their worlds spinning?

Check out this quick snippet:

“I’m waiting!” His voice rang out from outside the change room. I watched the blood drain from my body in the mirror as I went increasingly paler. I felt completely naked. Literally, my underwear was bigger than that swim suit.

I can’t. I can’t.

“Hello?” Darrien called.

Oh, grow a pair, Cora! I bit my lip, threw on my new bunny hug, and slunk out.

Oh god, this is such a mis-

My jaw hit the floor, and drool may have rolled out.

Darrien was standing there in practically nothing. I mean I didn’t look at…I couldn’t look…down…there. But if I happened to…

If I thought he was defined before, I really had no clue. He was chiselled and defined with deep valleys between his muscles. He was strong…there was no denying that, like someone that knew how to fight.

My favorite were the indents right by his hips; they dipped deep and out of sight, even in that tiny suit. He stood there with his hands on his hips, no shame in the way he was dressed, with an incredulous look on his face.

“I’m out here freezing my nards off, and you’re wearing a hoodie? That’s not the deal that we struck, Humbug. I’m disappointed,” he tutted and shook his head.

Oh, my god. I can’t do this! It’s like stripping for him! I can’t. I can’t. I can’t. I can do it…I’m going to do it. No, I’m not. Why did I agree to this?

Darrien closed the space between us quickly, and I had to avert my eyes to stop from looking him up and down. My face was flaming hot.

“Hey, I was just teasing,” he said, in a soft gentle voice as he rested his hands on my arms. His dimples winked into existence, and he pulled the hood over my head.

“I like the hoodie. It leaves something to the imagination,” he said with a smile as he tugged at the hood strings. My heart sang. He leaned in closer, levelling his eyes on mine.

“And I have a great imagination,” he whispered.
