Reviews for the ‘In Deep’ series…
I really loved this series. Brielle is a girl who doesn’t take life for granted. She knows it can be over before you know it but when she wants to give her heart she is afraid, she wants to go all in but how can she when the one she is falling for won’t fall back. Cristo (Chriss) he had a hard up bringing a father who acted like he didn’t want him, a brother who did the unthinkable. Chriss was a man who felt he didn’t deserve love and didn’t know how to trust. When he meets Brielle his world go a different direction one he is not use to. How can he fight his feelings when they feel right. This story is amazing. I was pulled in and couldn’t put it down, I didn’t want to.
I’d never read this author… now I want to devour every book she’s written! Kella McKinnon is fantabulous!! Her style and flow and character development and…everything about this book was excellent!!
The good stuff? Ohmigosh! Where do I begin?! I won’t spoil too much, and in fact only skim the surface. This is a book you MUST read!
Characters… Brie and Cristos, both, exceeded the expectations I deducted from the blurb. They were intriguing, complex, and mysterious. I find that some books have a Hero and heroine who are great together, interacting with dialogue, but fall flat separately. This book was far from that! They could both stand alone and be just as engaging. Brie was a strong and independent woman. A woman who’d been through some pretty awful events in her life and had plans to put that hurt, fear, anger, and helplessness to good use. Brie has big dreams. It was great to see! She wasn’t about to be pushed around even if Criss was an incredibly sexy alpha male. And the amazing Criss? He was a casino owner who was sexy and mysterious. A noted play-boy. Never giving the same woman more than one night. Not even ‘night’. More like get-in-get-off-get-out. I’m honestly not a huge fan of characters like that. Unless they move me. Move me to an unexpected emotion. And Criss most definitely did!!
As I read this amazingly well written story, I could clearly see how impossible their relationship was and yet, I couldn’t stop myself from being completely consumed.
This series is a compelling, sizzling, irresistible, intense read! I was sad when the books ended because I too, fell in love with Cristos.
I am excited to introduce my first contemporary romance… a two part series due to be published at the end of September!
Life is damned short. I know this… I’ve seen it all around me for as long as I can remember. People die for all kinds of reasons, and some of them die for the bad choices they make.
Some of them die by my hand.
I was only living for one thing, one goal, one endgame… until I saw Brielle. And when I touched her, it was all over for me, I just didn’t know it yet. Yeah, what I did to her was unforgivable. I know that now. Some part of me knew it then, too, but it didn’t matter. I had to hold on to her. I would have done anything to keep her… and I did. I’m probably a little messed up in the head. How could I not be, after the life I’ve led? The one I was born into?
Now I’ve put her in danger, dragged her into my world, and I don’t know whether to push her away or hold her tighter. Letting her go would be the right thing to do… but every time I try to do the right thing… I can’t. I’m in too deep…
