Release Date-8th January 2018
Kindle Edition-282 Pages
I am the ghost that haunts your dreams. I am a liar, a protector…a killer…I am death.
You think you know my story, but you have no idea. My death was just the beginning.
In the years since I escaped the shadow organization that owned me, my vow to protect my family is the only thing that kept me alive.
Until I meet her.
Too bad I need the monster to protect her from the demons of her past.
Too bad she’s not that innocent.
Warning: I know you want the whole story right now. But that’s not how things went down. And I think you know by now when it comes to ORUS, things don’t always go according to f*cking plan.
(The Deep Duet unfolds over the course of two books. Deep will be followed by Deeper, releasing on January 29th)
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
So never having read anything by this author before, I was going in totally blind.
So First impressions from me, well yep they be good folks, this is definitely an author I can gel with.
A very easy writing style that initially pulled me right in and made me want to delve deeper into the whole story.
I didn’t realise originally that this was part of an on-going series, but I found that really didn’t matter at all.
The backstory was cleverly woven in. without the need to have read previous material to get up to speed.
So this can totally be read as a stand-alone Folks.
And I will definitely be checking out some more of this author’s superb offerings when I get a spare hour or two.
Now down the nitty gritty what’s this about?
Well, this is basically Dianna’s and Rafe’s tale.
Rafe all-round bad-ass, former Orus operative, now semi-retired and working for his brother in law aa semi-normal life and put his government sanctioned killing day’s behind him.t Blake security.
So trying to lead
And then enter Dianna, she has made it her life’s mission to bring to justice her fathers killer.
The killer she looked straight in the eyes and also lived to tell the tale.
That killer that is Rafe!!
So, This is one of those stories that the pages just keep turning by themselves and you can’t help but be drawn right in.
Deep is fabulously well written and I finished this in record time.
So, Why not a higher rating then?
Well, I am not a big fan of the revenge trope and it did seem to drag on just a tad too long for my liking.
I also I wasn’t that fond of Dianna either, She came across as extremely conniving and quite frankly sneaky little bitch.
I find it absolutely astounding that she had no suspicions at all of what her family was involved in, please, surely nobody could be quite that gullible and naive.
And where did she actually think she was going to find this big proof that she was looking for and while I’m at it if you’re going to roofy someone’s drink, Dianna.
Prob’s best not to leave residue on the rim, totally spy school rule number one I would think DUH!!!
So yeh Dianna, really not a fan here people.
But Rafe, well tickle my funny bone, he was one super hot man-toy.
Totally fan-Girling here.
I really hated the way Dianna played him, using her feminine wiles to ensnare him in her web.
but I still felt there was a missing connection here slightly, I just wasn’t quite feeling it and I’m not sure exactly why.
But that aside I’m still fairly optimistic for taking two, hopefully, everybody will be more aware of the score and I’m extremely intrigued to see where this is going to head next.
So, in conclusion, I found Deep to be a good solid read with a few teensy teething issues those aside I’m still looking forward very much to the next read.
Thank You to the Author for proving me with an ARC of Deep of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
