Darker Water by Lauren Stewart

****4.5 stars****

I really enjoyed this story!! It was unique, and had  a lot of great elements. Although the cover & title led me to believe this would be a dark and very serious story, it was mainly a romantic comedy. The banter between the main characters was hilarious, and I absolutely fell in love with them both. The book does take a turn to more serious issues, but the overall feel of the book is fun. My heart did break a little, but what good is a happy ending if you don't have to work for it? I think this is the kind of book that almost anyone would enjoy!

Here's the blurb:

***DARKER WATER is a standalone contemporary romance inspired by The Frog Prince*** After another painful breakup, Laney Temple finally understands that love is a fairytale and sex rarely comes with a happy ending. She’s too busy for it right now anyway—she has a business to run, art to create, and candy to crush. Sure, eventually she’ll be ready to switch from her plastic-or-silicon lover to a flesh-and-blood one. But before that happens, she needs to be sure she won’t feel any of those annoying emotions that make her heart do things it wasn’t meant to do...

Like break

Carson Bennett is completely upfront about what he wants, and it has nothing to do with Laney’s heart. Her lips? Hell yeah. Other parts of her body? You better f*cking believe it. But her heart? Nope, not even a little. Until it does…a lot. But having feelings for someone isn’t allowed. It’s the kind of thing you’re supposed to push down deep and cover up with one-night stands, sarcasm, and booze...

Like secrets

Two people want the same thing—a commitment to nothing more than great sex in a bunch of different positions. Simple. Enjoyable. A win-win. Problem is, those two people have families and fears and pain that spill into every moment of their lives, control what they do and who they are. And if either Carson or Laney can’t free themselves from the past, they’ll both be pulled under by it.
