What Worked For Me:
I absolutely adore Shayla Black’s Wicked Lover’s Series and Falling In Deeper is another spectacular addition to this exciting series! This is the story of Lily “Sweet Pea” Taylor. She is horribly traumatized and battered emotionally and I spent so much of this book heartbroken and hurting for her. While she is incredibly resilient, she thinks she is weak and the things she has suffered in her past have made it difficult to trust anyone and to enjoy any intimacy. I adored her. She was spirited, especially when trying to protect herself, and I liked her intensity. She was the absolute PERFECT match for the luscious bad-boy hero Stone. I utterly loved Stone and found him to be one of my favorite Wicked Lover’s heroes. He has an edge to him that was appealing without being overbearing but the way he patiently and thoroughly worshipped Lily, melted me. He was enraptured by her and every move he made in regards to her reflected that. These two had some amazing chemistry and while this book wasn’t inundated with over-the-top erotic scenes, the scenes that played out were intensely passionate and mind-blowingly decadent. They were also full of emotion and a little bit of humor, something that made this book feel even more intimate. We have an evil bad guy, yeah, this guy is Vile with a capital “V”….and then an even crazier plot twist that I didn’t see coming that was WHACKED! I loved it and it made the story more intense and engaging. I was completely enraptured, something Shayla Black’s books always have the tendency to do. They suck you in and take hold, making you want to remain in her fictional world for as long as possible. However, all books must come to an end and the ending was bittersweet but romantic, full of hope and promise and a lifetime full of new love for our hero and heroine. I never thought it was possible but this series just gets better and better!
Would I Recommend This Book:
Yes, especially to my BDSM loving, erotic romance, suspense loving romance reading friends.
