I received this book from L. Woods PR in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
The plan was never to fall in love... The plan was to avenge my father's death.
Hell, I knew better. Never fall in love with the mark.
For ten years I have plotted and planned my revenge against Rafe DeMarco. He took the most important thing in my life away from me and I meant to return the favor.
Except, I was wrong...
Now, I need his protection. And I'm the fool who went and fell in love.
The best laid plans and all.
(Deeper is the finale of the Deep Duet. Start the duet with Book 1, Deep.)
A few weeks back I’ve read Deep, which ended in a huge cliffhanger. Luckily, the wait for Deeper wasn’t that long, because I really needed second part of Rafe and Diane’s story. Part One was fast-paced and all, Part Two is even better.
“He didn’t know what the fuck she was doing, but he was going to get her. Because after everything, he sure as shit wasn’t letting her go.”
Deeper starts right were Deep left off and shows us two confused lovers. Rafe doesn’t know what to make of Diane’s actions, all he does know is that she’s important to him, and that she’s his. Diane is shocked by her discoveries, and she’s a mess when it comes to Rafe. She wants the man, but then again, she’s sure they’re no good for each other. Between solving secrets and lots of action it’s one rocky road to a Happily Ever After for these two.
“I do love you, Rafe. It’s not a good idea, but I just can’t help it.” “Good. I don’t want you to.”
Like Deep, Deeper is fast-paced with lots of action (no, not just hot sex) going on. I really enjoyed reading this second part of the Duet, it gave me the answers to all the questions I had. Does Deeper contain some clichés? Yes, it does, but I absolutely don’t mind, the rest of the story makes up for it. I’ll definitely pick up other books by these authors.
Boy, oh boy… I love Diane for her bravery and determination, but sometimes I want to shake some much-needed sense into her. You know what Rafe is capable of, you know how he feels about you (and you about him), do not try to fight your demons alone! I love Rafe; he feels deeply for Diane, even though she pulls quite a few stunts. For such a bad-ass guy he’s pretty unsure when it comes to love and all, thinking he’s not good enough. Diane and Rafe are an awesome couple once they’re on the same page, I love them together.
“Happiness wasn’t something I thought was possible for me. But somehow that’s what you do. You make me happy.”
