Deeper by Megan Hart

by Megan Hart

Genre: Erotic / Paranormal Romance

Twenty years ago she had her whole life spread out before her. She was Bess Walsh, a fresh-scrubbed, middle-class student ready to conquer the design world. And she was taken. Absolutely and completely. But not by Andy, her well-groomed, intellectual boyfriend who had hinted more than once about a ring. No. During that hot summer as a waitress and living on the beach, she met Nick, the moody, dark-haired, local bad boy. He was, to put it mildly, not someone she could take home to Daddy. Instead, Nick became her dirty little secret— a fervent sexual accomplice who knew how to ignite an all-consuming obsession she had no idea she carried deep within her. Bess had always wondered what happened to Nick after that summer, after their promise to meet again. And now, back at the beach house and taking a break from responsibility, from marriage, from life, she discovers his heartbreaking fate—and why he never came back for her. Suddenly Nick's name is on her lips…his hands on her thighs…dark hair and eyes called back from the swirling gray of purgatory's depths. Dead, alive, or something in between, they can't stop their hunger. She wouldn't dare.

Elizabeth (known as Bess) returns to the sea-side town she spent her university summers working in. Now, upon being newly divorced, she moves into her grandparents beach home where she mysteriously runs into Nick, an old fling, and Eddie, an old co-worker. She's torn about what mistakes she made in the past and where exactly her future is going.

This was an audio book for me over my holiday drive. Not bad! It has that paranormal aspect to it that keeps up the interest as well as the romance that turns up the heat. Yet, Bess comes off as a lost character for me throughout most of the book. The chapters flip back and forth from the past to present, so the reader gets to see what exactly happened "then" and how that lead Bess to "now". At times it was was confusing and I, sadly, felt much of the story was left out . . . but overall . . . it was an enjoyable tale.

Likes: I like reading books all about the beach during the summer time, since it makes me day-dream I'm there . . . when I really stuck at work.

Dislikes: It's an okay love story, but I didn't feel like it was a complete love story. Lacking!
