Deep Blue Secret (The Water Keepers #1) by Christie Anderson

Deep Blue Secret (The Water Keepers, #1)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
California teen, Sadie James, thinks her life couldn't get any better. She has great friends, an energetic mother she adores, and the beach practically in her own backyard. But her carefree life is turned upside down when she's rescued by a mysterious and strangely familiar boy who won't even tell her his name.

Each time the boy appears, Sadie's unexplainable attraction to him deepens along with her need to unravel his secrets. The boy is there to protect her. But as wonderful and exciting as it might be to have an irresistible boy with crystal green eyes protecting her every move, every minute of the day . . . why does Sadie need one?

As Sadie finds answers, she realizes her life isn't as perfect as she thought. Not only is she caught in a world of dangerous secret agents she never knew existed, but it turns out her true identity may be the greatest secret of all.

17-year-old Sadie can’t think of anything else after meeting a mysterious boy on the beach, especially after he saves her life.
Who is the mysterious boy though? And why is her birthmark suddenly glowing?

This was an okay story, but there was way too much stuff in there that didn’t need to be in there.

Sadie was an okay character. She didn’t always make the best decisions, and went into the realms of obsession when she met Rayne, but she was okay.

The storyline was okay, but there was so much stuff in there that didn’t need to be in there! So much of this could have been cut to make the story more streamlined and it would have been so much better. As it was, the story just dragged and dragged. It was predictable, and the romance was really cheesy.
The ending was okay, although we were left with a bit of a cliff-hanger.
I really do think that this book could have been so, so much better with some good editing to take out those things that didn’t need to be in there.
Overall; okay story, but way too long and too slow.
5 out of 10.

  1. You lost me at "mysterious yet strangely familiar boy." There are a lot of books with that premise and I need a break from them!
