Review #200: Waterproof- Amber Garr

Title: Waterproof
Author: Amber Garr
Pages: 256
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Summary: Dying of thirst is the new reality.

Five years after the last drop of clean water disappeared, global societies collapsed and nuclear war shattered all hope of recovery. In a place now only a skeleton of its former self, survivors fight to avoid capture by the government. Forced to work in factories that produce the only drinking water available, those who go in, never come out.

Zach and Vivienne have lived as deserters since they were teenagers. Fighting amongst their own and scrounging for the necessities of life, they’ve learned to rely on each other in every way. Yet when tragedy strikes and the true objectives of the government facility are revealed, their world is ripped apart. A fate once thought to hold their demise may be the sole answer to their survival. Who can they trust? Who can they believe?

In this life, it pays to be waterproof.

Disclaimer: Waterproof is a new adult dystopian with sex, violence, and language that may not be suitable for a younger audience.
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. I loved this synopsis for this book! I love dystopian sand Waterproof delivered. I would definitely say that this novel is NA because it did have some sexy scenes that I did quite enjoy reading haha. The only thing that sucked was this book ended much too quickly. I want/ need to know what is going to happen ASAP! I really liked that this book was written from two different POV's, it really added to the story and it was done flawlessly. I really liked both Vee and Zach. I loved that their romance had been blossoming since they had been quite young, no insta- love here. Also I liked that despite everything they had gone through they finally were coming to terms with their feelings for one another. You could tell how much they cared for one another because they were so desperate to find each other again and they never gave up. I do want to know what the deal is with sneaky snake Riley. He gives me weird vibes. This was an awesome first book to the series and I can't wait to get my hands on book two. I would recommend this novel to both dystopian and survivalist fanatics.
