Come Hell or High Water is the last book in The Water Trilogy. I enjoyed all three books and am kind of sad to say goodbye to these complex characters. I don't read a lot of trilogies, however Britney King has done an amazing job in pulling me in with this one. In every book the characters Kate and Jude developed into even more intriguing characters. The character development was really good and I also enjoyed seeing how they grew as a couple. They are one of the most dysfunctional and unconventional married couple, however it just worked so well for them. They both have their flaws and have disagreements like every couple, however the stakes are much higher than for normal couples. One little mistake could mean the end for them. I loved that the story just like the other two was unpredictable. It kept me on my toes and on the edge of my seat. I had zero clue of how the story would end, I was prepared for anything. 


Even though Britney's writing style isn't the most commonly used, it just fit perfectly in this trilogy for these unconventional characters. It really set the mood for the type of characters Jude and Kate were. I don't think the story would've been as good as it was, if it was done a different way. It really added a bit of a dark and thriller vibe to it. I really need to read this author's other books, I am also looking forward to what she comes up with next. Hopefully she will write more (romantic) suspense/thriller stories. Pick this trilogy up if you love unique and suspenseful stories, with intriguing and complex characters





I’ve been studying her for months. I know how she takes her coffee, the color she prefers on her nails, the way her mouth moves when she sleeps. I don’t know what she looks like when she’s happy. But I will.

That’s not to say I meant to keep her this long. And, of course, you, well you, never intended to keep her at all. But then, what’s done is done.

“I want you to be happy here,” I told her the first week she was here, not long after we let the drugs wear off completely.

“I don’t see how that’s possible,” she said.

“Tell me what makes you happy.”

I could see her thinking about my question; I could see that I’d set something into motion. It wasn’t immediate—most things that are truly great rarely are, but eventually her lips turned upward. Slowly, she broke out into a full-on smile, and it was like the sun coming out on a cloudy day. “He makes me happy.”

“Your husband,” I said. It wasn’t a question. Mostly because it hadn’t occurred to me that it should be.

She laughed just slightly. The smile remained. “Something like that.”

“I see,” I told her, raising my brow.

She looked at me then, really looked at me. The smile faded but her eyes lit up. “Not yet, you don’t,” she said. “But you will.”
