Deep Under is the first book in the Walker Security series, a spin off from the Tall, Dark and Deadly series. I have not read the series but I have read books by Lisa Renee Jones that I certainly adored. I haven't read her books for a long time and It was awesome to read her book again because she always give with some fast pacing suspense that will definitely get you mind reeling.
Deep Under was a nail biting, smoking hot suspense with so much angst and drama. It was edgy. It was addictive that I devoured it so fast. I was brought at the edge of my seat wanting to know what happens next. Lisa Renee Jones totally weaved a powerful intoxicating read that left a significant etch on me. However, I found myself not excited as much. I liked it but I did not love it as much. I needed more punch. I also felt that the story was definitely too rushed because there were parts were I wanted the story to slow down a bit. It would have been explosive with more suspense. But I will definitely will read her books because her books always deliver despite a few hiccups.
Deep Under introduced us to Myla and Kyle, a couple with honest chemistry that was red hot. I did not feel their connection as much because I needed more from the. I loved their banter and easy dialogue between them which I ate up. Myla was a headstrong woman with a vulnerability that added a special dynamic to her character. Kyle was the protective with a powerful skills that proved to be very effective. They were force together.
I enjoyed reading Deep Under. It definitely brought out a fire in me to continue reading books by Lisa Renee Jones.

Ever had a book that makes you breathless? Ever had a book that emotionally rips you apart? Ever had a book that makes you bleed out and drown in your own tears? Ever had a book that completely changes you both in and out? Well. The Marriage Pact was that book for me. When I read the blurb. I expected a book about single friends doing a marriage pact. Nope this book was full on tragedy and emotions. Damn, I was struck by it until I could every facet of it. The Marriage Pact ruined me. Utterly destroyed me from inside out. I am trying not to burst into tears as I write this review but the Marriage Pact really touched me on a deeper. I was left completely disjointed by my emotions. It was just magnificent hands down.
Based on a true story, The Marriage Pact gave me a story that pushed my emotions to the brink. A beautiful symphony of love. A poignant story of pain. The Marriage Pact touched me the corners of my soul. Real. Honest, Electrifying. Delicate. Sad. Raw. The Marriage Pact certainly showed the true facets of love. Unconditional love. True love. Everlasting love.The Marriage Pact gave a true reflection of that. This book caused a huge crack in my heart and deep hole that I do not know if I ever recover from it. It is funny because only one book has done this to me. It made me react in such a way that I thought I would need to be admitted to asylum. The Marriage Pact completely gave me the FEELS that I felt them on my skin and giving me a rush. K. Larsen and Mara White are a powerful duo in my eyes because their writing is just captivating. They breathed new life into a the story that I was left with a lasting impression. The way they developed the scenes to give me a journey into different facets of life was exceptional. I was completely wrapped up in this story.
The Marriage Pact introduced to Ryan and Jackie two beautiful couple with so much angst that captured me on a deeper level. I completely fell in love with them. To me they showed me true love conquers. They had real and honest chemistry that was just so much tenderness and yearning. I was completely spellbound. They frustrated. They made me smile. They made me cry. They touched me so much that I was so connected to them. Jackie has been through a lot. It left her so guarded. She was strong and brash but her vulnerability ate at me. I was so gutted by the way of life she wanted. She wanted to take care of her family and that made her loyal to a T. I got to relate because she reminds of all of us when we get hurt. We put up a wall so we do not get so close to people because we fear of getting hurt. Ryan was such a caring guy. Sweet, loving and just one of the good guys. He had a hero complex that I found sweet but also annoying at times. Ryan and Jackie to me are the couple who I believed had that love that transcended all love.
The Marriage Pact is definitely a book to read. It will definitely choke you up nut still give a story that delivers. This was my first book by K. Larsen and Mara White. I will definitely be reading more of their books.
