Once, I wanted to die. That was the night I met Guy.

The strange man with flowers stepped from the shadows and saved my life.

Guy. Dimpled smile. Body of a surf god. Smart and funny.
Running out of time.

We became travelling companions through life, ticking off items on our bucket lists. I’d hidden from happiness for years and kept my life under strict control. Guy showed me how to step into the world and experience more. He brought light into the shadows and helped me through the darkness.

I became Phe again. I lived.

There’s just one problem.

We fell in love and this wasn’t part of our plans.

I thought I could cope with our uncertain future until Guy revealed a secret. His betrayal changed everything.

Sometimes, believing the lies we tell ourselves is easier than dealing with the truth.

The Same Deep Water is a new adult romance set in Australia. This is the story of two people living in the present and accidentally creating a future neither of them can see, and learning ten things on a bucket list are just the edge of the world they could have.

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My Review

“Fate is a strange creature, drawing together lost souls then stepping back to watch what happens.”

The Same Deep Water was a unique and different take on the story of love, overcoming life’s challenges, and finding a future. This my first read by Lisa Swallow, and I am so happy I took the chance on Phe and Guy’s story.

“I messaged you every evening so that every time you closed your eyes to sleep, you would know somebody out there cared.”

This is just a sample of words that move us in The Same Deep Water.  Both of our characters, Phe and Guy, are stuck on empty. One trying to live out their life to the fullest, the other shying away from it. But, neither quite making the connections they need. Until they finally do, and we embark on their journey to an unknown future.  

“Life goes on.”

Told in first person point of view, The Same Deep Water was a thoughtful and moving read that lulled me in to its grasp.  The character development had an underlying subtleness, until the point that big changes took place and were visible in the reality that had not been previously revealed.  Journeying with Guy and Phe as they attempted to fulfill their bucket lists was fun and made me feel as if they were real, tangible people.  The words in the story flowed and created a beautiful backdrop that I enjoy seeing in a book, making me feel each emotion that the characters spoke of and displayed.  If you are looking for a quick read that will leave you with a  warm feeling in your heart, I recommend you take a dive into The Same Deep Water.

“You’ve stolen every rational thought in my head and replaced them with dreams of you.”



“So? Can I?” he asks.

“Save my life?”


“Because of your list?” 

“Yep.” He pushes his unruly hair from his face. “Plus, you’re far too good-looking to be smashed against a load of rocks.”

Why do I blush? I inspect my feet, focusing on my painted toenails. I bought the neon pink varnish on a shopping trip with my friend Erica last month. Recently I’ve worn the colour to pretend I’m a dazzling pink girl, not a girl in a black hole.

“Why not give blood? That would save somebody’s life,” I retort.

Guy’s mouth curls into a smile, accentuating the dimples. “Good-looking and smart, too. That is a very good suggestion. Oh, well, I’m here now. May as well save you.”
