If you have kept up with the Burying Water series, you have met Ivy a time or two. Now you get to know Ivy and her world. Her world has always been crazy and now it's turned upsidedown. Things have taken a horrible turn.

Just like the other recent books from K.A. Tucker, this isn't your usual romance. Throw in some suspense and a murder, and you have another winning book from a wonderful author.

I was intrigued from start to finish, as usual. I couldn't put this one down. I think this is rivals the first book in the series, which is still my favorite. This one comes in a close second. Once you pick it up, you won't want to put it down until you are done.

K.A. has a way with her words in these books. They flow seamlessly, keeping you enthralled throughout the entire story. ( )

I absolutely loved this book. Ivy has been one of my favorite characters throughout the series, and she may have finally met her match.

I've always admired how fierce and independent Ivy is. She doesn't care what anyone thinks and doesn't need anyone in her life. Even after the events that take place she remains strong because she's the only person who will deal with everything. Sebastian is the shining character in this book, I think. He's got a lot to overcome. He also has a lot of truths he needs to sort out.

I loved these two together. They don't gush about their emotions, but they communicate how the feel toward each other with ease. Even when there is a shift in their surroundings, they know what needs to be done. I do like that he's able to handle Ivy's sarcasm, and attitude. It takes a certain type of person to do that.

I also like that we were able to see some of the characters from previous books. They don't have a main role, but you can tell how much Ivy loves them. They are probably the only people she has put her trust in. There are so many ups and downs, unknowns, and scenes where Ivy could possibly fall apart. I love the realness of the characters, and how in sync they are.

Surviving Ice is a great conclusion to this series, even though I'm sad to see it end.

4.5 "Target or Game Changer?" Stars! I have read each and every one of the Burying Water Series and have greatly enjoyed them all. Without a doubt, KA Tucker is very talented romantic suspense writer. Surviving Ice is no different.

Throughout this series we had gotten a peak at the tough-shelled, tatted heroine Ivy, so I had been eager to hear her story. And what a story it is! Moreover, I was equally pleased to find that the assassin for hire hero, who works for a private security firm that does clandestine government style missions, had an equally compelling story to tell. Perhaps the only sad point of this book, is that it is the last of the series. I for one wish there were more books to come, but I'm sure no matter what KA Tucker chooses to write next, it will be equally as compelling and engrossing as this series has been.

Ivy is back in San Francisco. She is living with her uncle and working at his tattoo shop. Thinking she just might finally have found a place she wants to stay put in for a while, she is blind sighted by what happens next. Her witnessing of a gruesome crime--her uncle's murder.

Following that, she is desperate to move on, but left with no choice but to clean up her uncle's shop and prepare his shop and home for sale. It is during this transition period that Ivy meets the secretive, but sexy Sebastian. And that questions begin to arise as to exactly why her uncle was murdered.

Sebastian is on a mission. One of many that he has undertaken at the hands of the private, clandestine security firm that he works for. Never being in one place for long, and doing the jobs that he assumes the public never really wants to know occur to maintain the peace, comes easy to this former Navy Seal. But he has finally been given a mission that he feels like he must question.

When things are not quite what they seem, what will the fiercely independent, Ivy and military trained commando, Sebastian, choose to do? Will they be able to fight their natural inclinations to take flight, in the case of Ivy, and follow orders, in the case of Sebastian; or, will they for the first time in their lives fight for something that could mean so much more?

Entertaining and enthralling, lovers of suspense titles will be captivated by the suspenseful plot of this story. At the same time, the romance between this--somewhat unlikely and yet equally explosive--pair is sure to keep your romance lust sated.

I honestly believe this is K.A. Tucker's most intense and suspenseful story to date that left me gasping through most of the story. I was gripped by the suspense and the story right from the start.

When I read about Ivy in Chasing River, I knew I wanted her to have a book on her own and K.A. Tucker didn't disappoint! I consider Ivy to be on the badass side. She's an incredibly strong female character and her strength is shown by how well she handles the death of her uncle. Ivy never stays in one place for long so when she arrives in San Fransisco and starts to work with her uncle in his tattoo shop, she feels like she finally has found a home. Her world is shaken when her uncle dies and she's ready to move once again but she meets Sebastian and her heart is telling her to stay.

Sebastian was a Navy SEAL who now works for a security company. What Ivy doesn't know is that her uncle died knowing valuable information which was recorded and that tape was hidden. Sebastian's job is to look for that tape and the prime suspect is Ivy and he'll do whatever he can to find that tape.

Ivy's and Sebastian's character were intricate but molded into each other so perfectly. They are very strong and independent characters. Each character gave me different feelings: Ivy had me concerned for her well-being but her want to stay strong helped me trust her choices and believe that she will be all right. Sebastian was a complicated matter and I had no idea what to think of him in the beginning. Later on he made me feel safe and I learned to trust him especially with Ivy. Both of these characters have gone through a lot and they understand each other extremely well.

The mystery and suspense of what would happen had me biting my nails. I was scared and excited to find out the end result of things and I have to say everything was handled so well! And I cannot end this review without mentioning the chemistry between Ivy and Sebastian, which was OFF THE CHARTS! Right from the start when they meet, you could feel the sexual tension between them and it wasn't long before they gave in to their desires.

This story was exhilirating, suspensful and entertaining from beginning to end. K.A. Tucker gave a great ending to this series and I highly recommend everyone to read. ( )
