Head Above Water by Amber Garza 


Sometimes all you need is someone to hold you up.

Harper Elliott knows what it feels like to drown. To be unable to breath, to feel the crushing weight of your lungs collapsing while waves crash over your head and the surface is just out of reach. The ocean has stolen way too much from her and her family. Even though she lives just miles from the beach she rarely ever steps foot on it, and never goes in the water.

Until she meets Tag Williams, the sexy lifeguard with the funny name, kind smile, genuine eyes and smoking hot body. He makes Harper want to do more than just stick her toes in to test the waters. He makes her want to jump in with both feet.

But if she does, can she trust Tag to keep her head above water?

Our 4 Star Review

Only her best friend on her birthday could convince her to come to the beach, but going near the water is out of the question. Too bad some jerk didn't get the memo and scooped Harper up and dropped her in the ocean. She didn't know it was only two feet of water, but being in it period freaked her out and thankfully lifeguard Tag was there to get her out.

He didn't know what is was about the gorgeous girl in that hot bathing suit, but something about her struck out to him and when her lost bracelet gives him the perfect opportunity to see her again Tag's not gonna waste it. What causes a girl to fear being in only a few feet of water? He doesn't know but he wants to find out and help her. As they get closer and he finds out her secrets can he help her? But what about the secrets he has could they drive her away? When the past comes back to haunt them can they overcome it and keep their head above water?

Harper is sweet but she has demons that keep her locked inside of herself, I loved seeing her journey to opening herself up and coming out of her shell. Tag has a hero complex, but knows the difference between just saving someone and realizing he's found someone special. I was glad he wasn't a perfect guy coming in to save the day. He has things that make him more real by tearing him apart to the point where he had to come back from it and he did. Watching them both learn together how to overcome their pasts and seeing how they helped each other you just want everything to work out for them. Their journey was sweet and I enjoyed going on it with them.
