eARC BOOK REVIEW...Ocean Submerged by M.A. DeOlmos

Title:  Ocean Submerged
Author:  M.A. DeOlmos
Publication Date: April 16th 2014 by M.A. De Olmos

Plot:  Twenty-seven year old Ocean Hawthorne thought he’d known loss and pain when his twin sister Stormie died. It was his fault the world would no longer see her beautiful smile or hear her captivating laughter. The former world champion in the vicious world of MMA fighting thought he’d been through the worst and has now carried that guilt and pain with him since. 

Then he met Livie Acosta. The moment he laid his eyes on the exotic beauty, he was hooked. In that split second of looking into her wild and hurt eyes, his heart began to beat again. He knew then that he would never be able to let her go… but was that the right thing for him to do? Because yet again, Ocean found himself surrounded by a familiar darkness, a pain so strong that even breathing hurt, and living felt impossible. He’d pushed too far in the effort to love and help her, and now… now he didn’t know if he’d ever see her again. Lawrence Hawthorne has been through the ringer when it came to hurt and disappointment, but nothing could have prepared him for the possibility of losing Livie. 

He’d just found her and now—well, now he didn’t know what to think. To him, Livie was more than just a girl, more than just a friend. To Law, Livie was someone he needed to help and protect, even from herself, and he’d failed that simple task. Will the Hawthorne cousins who have sworn to protect Livie survive her selfish act, or will they crumble, yet again?


Oceans Collide left me brimming with two main questions: did Livie survive? What happens now?

In Ocean Submerged, we not only get answers but we get more questions brimming to unfold...

So the story in a jiffy:

With Livie’s altercation still in the air, we once again get reaquainted with Ocean, Livie, and Law and follow them as they cope with events, their pasts, and even their futures.

Sounds simple right? Not.

M.A. DeOlmos definitely ups the ante in this sequel as emotions will be toyed, heavy subject matters and new characters will arise, and the stakes are much higher. Ocean is really put through the ringer in this as we see his deepest fears come out and the darkness threatening to unfold. Will he see the light at the end of the tunnel? What about Livie? Did she make it or not? What will become of her fate? And Law? How does he fare off in all of this? Will he be able to protect Livie like he swore to? Or will he (and Ocean) fail?

Read and you will find out! I can't wait for Book 3 already!! I want it NOW!!

*I received an ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!!*
