New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie Ann Walker delivers perfect pulse-pounding romantic suspense! The former Navy SEALs of Deep Six Salvage thought they could retire to the sea and hunt for treasures of the deep, but when trouble comes to visit, there'll be hell to pay.
Ray “Wolf” Roanhorse took one look at Chrissy and knew she was the woman of his dreams. There’s a hitch, however. He screwed things up with her. Big time. Now all she wants is to be friends. He’ll have to be his most charismatic and charming self if he has any hope of changing her mind. And winning her heart.
Christina Szarek knows all about sexy, brooding men like Wolf. She grew up watching her mother fall for – and be broken by – plenty of them. If she had her way, she’d avoid Wolf altogether. But they’re partners in the hunt for the Santa Cristina’s legendary treasure. Avoidance is impossible. And the longer she’s near him, the more he chips away at the walls she’s erected against him.
The danger to Chrissy doesn’t only come from her burgeoning feelings, however. There are mysterious players who would see her silenced – for good. And Wolf, with his wicked grin and spec-ops training, is all that stands between her and a date with death in the deep.
4 out of 5 (very good)
DEEPER THAN THE OCEAN is the fourth book in the Deep Six series but the first one I have read. It definitely can be read as a standalone without missing any of the plot, although I would like to read the others, just to know their stories!
Wolf and Chrissy have an attraction that is off the charts, but due to Chrissy's past and Wolf's stupidity, friends is all they will be, as far as Chrissy's concerned. That all changes when she and Winston are both shot one night. She manages to get help for Winston before collapsing, which triggers all of Wolf's protective instincts.
This was a great story with plenty of witticisms and banter. I loved the misheard lyrics - they definitely made me laugh every time! I also believe the next book will be Romeo and Mia's, or at least it appears that way with the setting up.
I do hope the treasure is eventually found as I found the historical part of this story fascinating. I wonder if it's an overall story arc mentioned in the other books.
This was a great story that I thoroughly enjoyed and have no hesitation in recommending.
