Head Above Water: Gemini Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Camille Ellis has tracked many killers during her career, but this time it's personal. Cut off from conclave resources, she won't let a small thing like a suspension keep her from accepting Cord Graeson's offer of help.
Pretending to be mated to him is one way to secure allies, but the best that can be said of the Chandler Pack is they haven't killed or eaten her. Yet. Between the alpha's displeasure and the pack's distrust of fae, she's working overtime to keep her head above water.
Just when the fur starts to fly, a tip cracks her case - and her life - wide open.

As the second installment in the Gemini series, Head Above Water doesn’t have the focused storyline that Dead in the Water had. In the first book, the mystery was very strong and the author created a compelling heroine. Head Above Water introduces new characters, new storylines, and reveals the intricacies of warg pack structure that comes attached with a lot of dysfunction. Old characters from two other series make an appearance, which wasn’t too distracting and may feel like a bonus to fans of the Black Dog and Mai Hayashi series.
There is a lot going on in this book and it seemed to lack direction. The best part in this story is the character development. Not only do readers learn more about Cord but they will also see Cam strengthen and evolve. It’s also rewarding to see Cam and Cord’s relationship gain shape…and not via sex! Emotional intimacy and trust are involved, and it was worthwhile! The heroine does have a goal in this story, but the overall book may leave readers wondering where the spotlight should be shining and where the big investment is. Head Above Water does end with a cliffhanger, yet there are interesting developments which may compel readers to continue to the next book, Hell or High Water.

Both Cord Grayson a Camille Ellis have suffered great losses in their lives. Leaving them riddled with overwhelming grief and guilt. These factors have shaped their outlook on life.
Cord has the bond with his pack to help share his grief. Were as Cam only has her work. Her determination to find the person or creature responsible for killing young girls. But now she has Cord, if only she will accept him and all he has to offer.
I love how the characters develop and grow throughout this story. I just want to hug Cam, and maybe shake her a bit, to make her see what's right in front of her eyes. That, and to let her know she isn't responsible for every bad thing a killer does. I also love all the friends Cam is making. For someone who is used to being an island, she is reluctantly letting it become a peninsula. I hope to see Dell get her own story.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes Urban Fantasy and/or Paranormal genres.
Cam and family, invited by Graeson/Cord, come to Villanow the location of the murder of Graeson's sister, by Charybdis, on Chandler pack turf. As the plot heats up, so do the interactions between Cam and Cord.
The Chandler pack poses some real and threatening physical challenges to Cam as the prospective mate of the Beta wolf As she circles the Chandler pack her Gemini nature and attributes evolve. The pack evolves as well, leading up to some changes in her relationship with Cord/Greason which leads to changes in the pack hierarchy. Cam discovers new aspects to her Gemini nature as she is further drawn in to Cord's world
As she hunts the Fae she calls Charybdis, someone may be hunting her; leaving meaningful objects from her childhood on the steps of her trailer. That said...I can't wait for yhe next book!
In many ways, this book felt like a transitory story. Cam spends a lot of time improving her fae shifting skills, which she desperately needed to do. I liked the progression of Cam and Cord's relationship and I'm looking forward to seeing it continue to grow in the next book. The sparks between Del and Isaac are interesting too. A word of warning, the book ends in another cliff hanger, but I think it's worth it.
