A great mix of danger, action and sexy romance.
For the past fourteen months Myla has been held captive by a notorious kingpin. But she’s no shrinking violet, she’s not only survived her hellacious prison but is also smart and strong enough to keep her FBI sister safe while gathering intel that will help save women in the sex trade side of her captor’s business. The time has come for her to get out but she can’t do it alone. Can she trust her new mysterious bodyguard that makes her feel hotter and safer than anyone in a long time?
“The minute our gazed collide, the fire between us ignites.”
Kyle had seen the video footage that indicated Myla was dead, yet he refused to believe it and had kept looking for her ever since. He can hardly believe it when one of his undercover assignments leads him right to her. Can he convince her he’s one of the good guys and still keep his cover long enough to get her safely out?
“We’re fire sweetheart. We both know it. It’s inconvenient, but it’s undeniable, which means we’re going to have to find a way to deal with it because I meat what I said. I’m here. I’m not leaving.”
I really like suspenseful romances, they tend to add a layer of excitement which make the plot that more interesting. Deep Under does that with the constant threat of the mafia lord coming to get the girl and kill whoever he thinks is the enemy including the brooding alpha who’s been in love with the girl since before he actually met her. And while hero and heroine are waiting for the shoe to drop, they slowly build a relationship in which trust is key but the attraction between them is also highly combustible.
“I’m addicted to you, Myla. Crazy, insane, addicted to you, I want you to be just as addicted to me.”
I liked how much Kyle wanted not just to protect and save Myla, he also wanted her trust and he proved to her time and again he would always be there for her. Myla’s strong spirit was a perfect match for him. I would have loved though, to get to know both of them better as I felt we only scratched the surface of who Kyle and Myla really are.
Plot wise, I really liked the uncertainty of who and when would come at them which helped build their relationship but also felt a bit rushed at the end.
Deep Under is book #4 in the Tall, Dark and Deadly series by Lisa Renee Jones. It’s a suspenseful, standalone romance full of excitement and sexiness with a happy ending. Told from both points of view.
