More Than Water by Renee Ericson 
Publication Date: 22 June 2015 

More Than Water Full Cover

Synopsis: 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.

4.5 Stars by Jen Skewes

I loved this book.   This is one of those books that I could not wait to read.  Renee Ericson’s These Days series is one of my favorite series so of course when I found out she was writing another book I was so excited.  More Than Water is very different form her first series but that is what I loved about it.  It was witty, fun, and just a refreshing read. 

EJ is an art major who just broke up with her boyfriend.  Art is her love and her passion, but unfortunately for EJ, her parents aren’t exactly on board with her career choice.  Which means that she must follow the path that they have paved for her, even if it makes her unhappy. 

Foster is an engineering major and I must admit a bit of a mystery for while.  He is also a little nerdy.  Ok well maybe a lot nerdy.   I mean anyone that plays drinking games that involves the periodic table is probably considered a nerd.  But there is so much more to Foster.  He is smart, sweet, and very sexy with a geeky side to him.  And yes nerds can be sexy and my God Foster is sexy.  

EJ and Foster just started working together at the school library.  These two could not be any more opposite but yet at the same time I think similar in so many ways.  Foster is in no way the type of guy that EJ would usually go for.  They start out as friends and that leads to one night of drunken sex.  But they find that they cannot stay away from each other and agree to be friends with benefits.  It is nothing more than great sex between two friends. Neither one of them are ready for a relationship, at least they tell themselves that.  But then things get complicated because feelings start to become involved, but they seem to be one sided.  Will being friends with benefits end up ruining their friendship?  Or will they both be able to accept the feelings that they have and become more than just friends?

I loved Foster and EJ together.  They have this way of communicating through sarcastic and witty banter and it worked.  This is who they were. And together they were just perfect.   If only the two of them could see how good they were together.  I waited for that moment when they both realized that they were in love with each other.  I wanted them to take their relationship to the next level.   I was completely rooting for the two of them from the very beginning.  

EJ was fun and sassy and the type of person that you want as your best friend.  And Foster, oh that sexy,yet nerdy Foster.  I loved everything about him.  And my God I never knew engineering could be so hot.  He knew and understood EJ better than anyone.  And while Foster may have been a little bit nerdy and not her type you could see how much she was falling for him.  

EJ and Foster's relationship just felt real.  It was fun and refreshing.  I love when you meet two characters in a book that you instantly fall in love with, connect with and can see yourself hanging out with.  And that is exactly how I felt about EJ and Foster.   I can't say that there was one thing that I loved about this book because I truly loved everything about it.  I loved the two main characters equally and loved them even more when they were together.   I loved watching their friendship grow, I loved the banter between them.  I completely devoured this book and did not want to put it down and once it was all over I was a bit sad to see it end, because I wanted so much more of these characters.  Once again Renee Ericson did not disappoint.  I love her writing and how much she always makes me feel.  Another wonderful job.
