Drowning: An Angsty StandaloneDrowning: An Angsty Standalone by Marni Mann

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve read Marni’s work many times, but this is the first time I have read anything by Gia Riley. I have to say that I thought their styles were a perfect match. The book tells the story of two people who are on the run for different reasons, and their struggle to get back their lives.

The characters were well-written, and the connection between the leads was believable and entertaining to watch unfold. The story was filled with humor, angst, and plenty of suspense that kept me reading way too late at one point, because I just had to see what was going to happen next. I would love to see another book by these two.

Though it comes with a price.   Because the second they stop running, they’ll drown.

About the Authors

Marni Mann:

Bestselling author Marni Mann knew she was going to be a writer since middle school. While other girls her age were daydreaming about teenage pop stars, Marni was fantasizing about penning her first novel. She crafts sexy, titillating stories that weave together her love of darkness, mystery, passion, and human emotions. A New Englander at heart, she now lives in Sarasota, Florida, with her husband and their two dogs, who have been characters in her books. When she’s not nose deep in her laptop, working on her next novel, she’s scouring for chocolate, sipping wine, traveling, or devouring fabulous books.

Gia Riley:

Author Gia Riley has been in love with writing romance since high school when she took her very first creative writing class. From the small but mighty state of Delaware, she’s a country girl at heart, traveling back to her roots in Pennsylvania as often as she can.

She’d rather pick truth than dare, bake than cook, and will always choose coffee over tea.
Just like life, her stories always have a mixture of heart and humor.
