 He’s been a pawn in a game all along...
 
The King of New York is back. And now, he’s got a Queen on his arm. Just when Noah Adams and Avi Linton are finally settling in to their “happily ever after,” another evil is preparing to make a move. This time, the game just got a little more dangerous and nobody will come out unharmed. Determined to protect her at all costs, Noah puts his life on the line for the only woman who ever mattered to him. But that might not be enough.
 
When the past begins to threaten their future, Avi and Noah must fight for their present. But can they battle against their enemy without descending deeper into danger?

Review

Deeper: Descent picks up right where book one ended. Noah Adams, the King of New York, has found his Queen in Avi Linton. Though they came together under tragic circumstances, the two have decided to give their relationship a shot. Just when Noah thinks he’s gotten everything he’s ever wanted, he learns that he’s still caught in the web of an adversary unlike any he’s known before. Like Deeper, Deeper: Descent is a sexy, suspenseful story that’s hard to put down.

I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters are multi-dimensional and complex, the story is well-written, and I love the urban setting of New York City. Noah may be a drug kingpin who’s a bit of a hard-ass, but he’s also a very likable character. I found that interesting, because if Allyn Lesley hadn’t developed him as well as she did, Noah could have easily become a bully. Even though he’s heavy-handed at times, I find that it’s due to his military background, and because he realizes how dangerous his life can be. Avi is a pretty cool woman, and I love that she has her own identity apart from Noah. However, I did feel like she lost a bit of herself in Noah in this second novel. Hopefully she’ll regain some of her autonomy in the third entry.

The aspect of the story I enjoyed the most was the gritty underworld feel of Noah’s world. I loved the mystery surrounding his past, and how it kept informing his life today. This shed more light on Noah’s personality, and made him more empathetic to me. Though this is true, I still like his boys Roe, Cass, and Gavin more than him. Somehow they seem more like “regular” people. Now that Noah has uncovered the truth about his past it will be interesting to see how/if it changes him in the next installment.

Allyn Lesley’s The Deeper Chronicles is a fast, entertaining read, and full of hot, steamy love scenes. I think Deeper: Descent is a suspenseful story that grabs you right away, and the characters keep you invested in the outcome. Anyone who is looking for a romantic crime novel should definitely check this one out. Since it’s the second novel, I would start with book one, as this story is a continuation of that one. Picking this one up without having read the first book may confuse readers about the backstory, so be warned.

      Thanks for having me! It was a pretty good book. I found it hard to put it down, but then I love action-packed stories.

    The contrast of romance and the darkness of the underworld make for a good combination. Sounds like a great book!

    • @Angelized_1st

      It was a good combination. If you like gangster type stories, then you’ll definitely enjoy this one. Thanks for stopping by, Rosie!

    I have been meaning to read the first book of the series for a while now ever since it was recommended to me by a friend. I am definitely moving this up on my TBR list. This looks like a fun and sexy read, and I like the cover! 😀

      The cover is what grabbed my attention as well. I hadn’t heard of it until recently, but I’m glad I discovered it. I hope you enjoy it!
