More than Water by Renee Ericson Review

 5 Stars
It doesn’t feel right. It doesn’t feel wrong. It just...feels.

EJ Cunning, an art history major, dates musicians. Foster Blake, a chemical engineering major, can’t sing a tune. They’re not each other’s type. They’re coworkers.

Then, one night leads to sex—sex between friends—which leads to an agreement. It all seems so simple—but nothing ever is.

Many layers build a person’s facade.

Look into the depths for what’s hidden within.

It’s more than water. It’s a story—a living and breathing substance beyond the reflective surface.
We are a substance of our own design. We’re more than water. We’re more than fire. We’re a miracle, a living and breathing combination, with no formula to define

I love this book. I love this author and I have been dying for this book. I loved her last series, These Days. So when I heard about this book, I started a countdown. I have to admit I am a die hard fan of college romances, but the problem is that there are so many that it becomes hard to find the really good ones. This book is one of the best ones. Because as much as I love simple college romances with the bad boy, I LOVE the ones that have some depth to them as well. This book has a realism about it and characters with depth.

Foster is a bad boy .. in his own way. So he's not some bad boy that you would think. But it still satisfies that itch that only one girl can fix him type way. And he is a Chemistry major. I majored in Chemistry and Biology in college so this book hit all my good points with its geeky humor. His group of friends are perfect and I could picture every single one.

EJ is awesome. She is strong and bold and trying to find her way in the world to satisfy herself as well as those around her. I think we all struggle with what we want and what expectations we have upon us.

When both of our panting returns to a more measured rate, he collapses onto the bed next to me, where we lie side by side, staring at the stark ceiling above. Out of nowhere, he positions his palm about a foot away from my face. “What?” I ask, winded.
“High five?” 
Slapping my hand with his, I say, “That definitely deserves one.”

I think what I loved most about this book was the chemistry between these two. It had the most perfect humor and build up and ... and ... it was just perfect. I loved them. I really can't come up with words about everything I loved about their relationship. 

If you haven't read this book, then you need to NOW. If you haven't read this author then FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!! MAKE IT HAPPEN!!! She was one of my top reads in 2014 and I have no doubt she will be again for 2015. I can't wait for whatever she comes up with next!!
