..................................................................................................
How far does a girl have to run to escape a lifetime of pain and loss at the hands of Alaska's notoriously unforgiving Bering Sea? Twenty-seven-year-old Aesa Fredriksen thought landlocked Columbus, Ohio would suffice, and it does until the fear of regret drives her to return to Dutch Harbor in a final attempt to make amends with her nearly-estranged father. Intent on salvaging the wreckage of their relationship, she reluctantly agrees to join him—the only family she has left—as he heads out to fish for king crab, forcing her to brave the very waters that pulled him away from her as a child. The waters that stole her mother's life. When the day finally arrives for the Norwegian Queen to sail off into an uncertain future, Aesa can't help but fear the worst. Beyond the violent swells and impending storms, there is far more than death and danger awaiting her on her journey: love awaits her too.

Decker, a young but seasoned member of her father's crew, is a force of nature as strong as Aesa, He's her perfect match, and even she can't deny it. But he too is a man of the sea, and with memories of tragedy and abandonment etched so deeply into her mind, can she overcome her demons and let him in or will she drown in her darkness, forever caught in its undertow? .............................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Undertow by Amber Lynn Natusch was a beautifully written novel of grief, learning to forgive, and love.

It’s been nine years since twenty seven year old Aesa left her father and the cruel Bering Sea that took her mother away from her. Now she is returning to try and pick up the broken pieces of her relationship with her father. Aesa has agreed to go out to see with her father and his crew, expecting the worst to happen, but she is completely thrown by surprise. Aesa is getting along with her father, bonding with him even, then there’s Decker, a man who is stealing her heart, but is everything she doesn’t want, a man of the sea.

This book has stolen my heart, Amber Lynn Natusch’s writing is so beautiful, while reading the book I could smell the salty sea, I could feel the wind on my face, everything in Undertow is described through Aesa in so much detail you really feel as if you are there with her. The emotions that Aesa goes through are so strong you really feel for her as a reader, she feels so torn when it comes to her relationship with her father, and in a way her relationship with the sea. Undertow was filled with tons of inner conflict and seeing Aesa grow so much in just 227 pages of reading was amazing.

The romance in Undertow was a magnificent side benefit. I feel Undertow’s main focus was Aesa’s growth as a character, finding herself and forgiving her dad, then it was about her romance with Decker. The romance between Decker and Aesa was slow the first half of the book then really picked up the second half, which I am thankful for. The romance was just the cherry on top of what was already an amazing read without the romance. Decker is a man with a past that he has grown away from, he was caring, intelligent, patient, and just overall a perfect love interest for the main character Aesa who could be very difficult.

Overall Undertow was a splendid read, anyone that loves mature contemporary romance I believe will love Undertow! I am now an official fan of Amber Lynn Natusch and cannot wait to pick up some of her other novels after finishing Undertow!


“The smell of the sea called to a part of me – somewhere deep in my DNA. I wanted to hate it, fight it, but I could not. With eyes closed, I stood on the shore of the Bering Sea and reflexively inhaled the salty sweetness that stole my childhood, my mother, and nearly my sanity.”

 “She had a weakness for running. I had a weakness for her.” 

 “I am a man. I don’t run. I don’t lie. I don’t cheat, and I don’t use. I don’t find enjoyment in games, either. I’ve paid for my mistakes in life and learned from them. I know what I want, Aesa, and I want you. Nothing more. Nothing less.”
