Misled by the one she trusted the most...
With one standard traffic stop, everything Avianna Linton knew was shattered. Suddenly, her life wasn't what she thought. Hoping for anonymity and a new life, Avi flees to the bright lights of New York City, ready to start over.
Broken by a past he can't escape...
Rising from nothing on his own, Noah Adams grasps to power with bone-crushing grip, refusing to let anyone control him. The only person to ever dare to question his authority is her. And he can't handle it.
Connected by more than their disdain for one another...
Avi can barely hide her contempt for him. Noah struggles to control himself in her presence. Their attraction is undeniable, but impractical. They make no sense. But the closer they get, the deeper they fall.

I am not going to lie, it took me a while to get into this book. Make that several chapters to the 14th because it was very slow at developing and not mention, it was confusing as well. With switching perspectives, I have no problem with but I wish I knew who I was reading before diving into that section. Deeper wasn't awful because it does suck in near the end and you need to know what is happening next. So you just kind of had to jump into the next book, Descent. Filled with drugs, crime, and love, I think that you will indeed fall in love with the drug overload and the girl who will make you laugh with her antics. Allyn Lesley did the best that she could to draw me into a suspense themed novel and I think that although it isn't my favorite genre, I appreciated this book by the end with a 3.7 out of 5 stars. Read this book and judge it for yourself.
This book is dark and the title Deeper really fits. The well of emotions that we see in the characters runs deep. At the start of the book, we meet Harry and Noah, and we see some drugs that are killing people. How do they know one another? What are they to one another? Avi is a young lady who has moved to New York from Florida where she was born, getting away from her mother. She meets a girl named Sophie. Sophea lost her parents one after the other when she was younger and was taken in by her aunt and uncle. Avi was told her father was dead. She goes out to a club one night with Sophie. She meets Noah and Jayson that night. Who are these guys? One day, Avi finds a business card for an NYC PD Detective stuck into her mailbox. What does she do with the card? Does she call the guy or throw it away? What happens either way? One day, she's on her way to meet someone at a local place to get something to eat. What happens as she starts crossing the street? Who is Ido? Who is the mysterious person that he is with in his office? Who is Ido's lover? What do they have against Noah and the Detective? Who is looking for revenge and why? Who is just looking to take over? What happened that caused Avi to leave Florida? To walk away from her mother? What guilt does she carry? When she breaks down and actually tells Noah about it, what happens? What does Ido have to do with all of this? When Noah sends Jayson packing, away from Avi, what does he do in exchange? When Noah finds out who murdered his friend Harry, and what Jayson did, what actions take place? When Ro's wife is shot outside a club when they're leaving one night, what retribution takes place after Avi is rescued from the police department for the second time by Mr. Plummer, Noah's attorney? Will there be an HEA to this? When you read and find out some of the dark stuff going on, it is eye opening. Read it, it's good! RECEIVED THIS BOOK AS A GIFT FOR A FAIR/HONEST REVIEW and REVIEWER FOR Bloggin' With M.Brennan.
This book is an intriguing mix of crime and romance - although not romantic romance. Instead you get instant hot attraction, the kind that fills your every thought and overwhelms you when you least expect it. This is how it is between Avi and Noah. At first glance, a primary school teacher and a cartel boss don't have much in common, but there is more to both of these characters than meets the eye. Noah is the ultimate anti-hero; you are never quite sure if he is good or bad. He seems good at heart, but is very cold and collected when he does 'bad' stuff. This certainly kept me on my toes, and it did for Avi too. She was a sassy character with a mile-wide stubborn streak. She gave him space when he needed it, but also called him out when he was being unreasonable. They have some fantastic dialogues in the book! Very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that I could see, this is a twisted and dark crime romance that will definitely leave you wanting more. Recommended by me.

A good girl meets bad boy and even though it is like oil and water they some how can't help the pull that attracts them to each other but will it end in disaster or something else. I received an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. This is book 1 of The Deeper Chronicles series. I liked the book but some parts grabbed me more then others and held my interest longer.
