In Too Deep

Cade and Aiden are totally opposites with nothing in common.  That’s why Aiden cannot understand what it is that draws him to the other man, but he does know that he needs to make some kind of connection.  Neither man is ready for where things are headed but once they come together, both will fight for what they found.

In Too Deep is an angst-ridden story that touches on issues that may be difficult for some readers.  That out of the way, this is a story that will grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning and keep them turning the pages.  Individually, the main characters are interesting; however, I could not see how the author even thought they would make a good pairing.  As I got deeper into the story, it was easy to see that these two balance each other out, bringing into their relationship something the other needs.

The two do not come together easily, in fact there were times when I wondered if they would even come together at all.  Once they do come together, their relationship grows strong fast, especially on Aiden’s side.  Readers may find Cade a little hard to like at times, but there is a reason for the way he behaves and it makes things easier to understand once his story comes out.  I am glad that Aiden found Cade to be someone to stick with as I really wanted this character to find his HEA.

There are several secondary characters in this story, and while the actions of some of them may be deplorable, they play an important part in the men’s story and help move things along.  I would have liked to have seen one of them get their comeuppance but just knowing what the boys’ have planned worked too.  

This is a book that I am sure will find itself on many keeper shelves and is one that I plan to re-read in the future.
