_______________________________________

How far does a girl have to run to escape a lifetime of pain and loss at the hands of Alaska’s notoriously unforgiving Bering Sea? Twenty-seven-year-old Aesa Fredriksen thought landlocked Columbus, Ohio would suffice, and it does until the fear of regret drives her to return to Dutch Harbor in a final attempt to make amends with her nearly-estranged father. Intent on salvaging the wreckage of their relationship, she reluctantly agrees to join him—the only family she has left—as he heads out to fish for king crab, forcing her to brave the very waters that pulled him away from her as a child. The waters that stole her mother’s life.
When the day finally arrives for the Norwegian Queen to sail off into an uncertain future, Aesa can’t help but fear the worst. Beyond the violent swells and impending storms, there is far more than death and danger awaiting her on her journey: love awaits her too.
Decker, a young but seasoned member of her father’s crew, is a force of nature as strong as Aesa, He’s her perfect match, and even she can’t deny it. But he too is a man of the sea, and with memories of tragedy and abandonment etched so deeply into her mind, can she overcome her demons and let him in or will she drown in her darkness, forever caught in its undertow?

Brandee’s Review:

Fan of The Deadliest Catch? Well that does not really matter, but it is DEFINITELY a BONUS if you are! This book gave me a great romance, redemption, drama, action, suspense and heartache. I highly recommend you go pick this one up.
I really was pleasantly surprised by this book … I LOVED it! For me, it started a “little” bit slow and I was not sure if I would be able to get into it, but I was TOTALLY wrong to feel that way. Sooner than later, Undertow ended up being one of those books for me that I did not want to put down because I had to find out what was going to happen. The author did the perfect job of keeping me right on edge… and even brought stupid tears to my eyes. Why do I say stupid? Because in the middle of a certain scene which brought on tears for me, I had to leave my house to go pick up my kids – looking all “stupid” with a red-eyed-puffy-crying face… I was afraid for anyone to ask me if I was ok and what happened …. You know then I would have to tell them it was a book that made me look like this! Most people do not get that when I tell them LOL. I know you would get that though!
I LOVED this book (it was not what I was expecting at all). Even though I mentioned above about “The Deadliest Catch” – I want you to know that is not a show that you have to like or love to enjoy this story (I admit that I only saw probably one show before), BUT for those of you who enjoy(ed) that show – this book will give you just enough of that life (what types of damage living the life on these boats can cause both physically and emotionally for the crew and their family members). In addition you get a strong (but damaged girl) (Aesa), a VERY swoon-worthy male lead (Decker) and a great cast of characters that you will fall in love with too (at least I did).
Although I have met Amber Lynn at a book signing this past year, this was my first book of hers I was able to read and I can tell you it will not be my last. Go grab this one and let me know what you think.

About The Author:

If you’re dying to know more about me, allow me to put you at ease. I’m a sharp-tongued, sarcastic cancer, who loves vegetable smoothies, winter storms, and the word ‘portfolio’. I should NEVER be caffeinated, and require at least eight hours of sleep to even resemble a human being. At thirty-four, I just now feel like I can keep a straight face while saying the word “rectum” (which is actually a huge lie because I just laughed out loud while reading this to my husband). I live with my iPod firmly affixed to my body, drive too fast, and laugh/cry at inappropriate times. I’m obsessed with urban fantasy… When I discovered that genre, I knew I had found my tribe. Now I write in that world because that’s what the voices in my head tell me to do. And they are very, very loud.
