Deeper by Blue Ashcroft

 Rain Wilson isn’t ever going to love again.

It’s a promise she made the day her boyfriend died in a water park accident, one she still blames herself for. Now she’s a senior lifeguard in a new town with a new pool and she’s just going to keep her head down and everyone safe.

Until a mysterious guy follows her into the waves at the pre-season bonfire and kisses her senseless. It’s just one mistake, and Rain is determined to put it behind her, until the dark haired, blue eyed hottie turns out to be her new co-supervisor Knight Mcallister.

Knight is hot, tatted, and carrying baggage of his own. He’s not happy about having Rain for a co-supervisor, and he’s even less happy about his attraction to her.

But between lifeguard drama, hot underwater kisses, and a growing attraction between them that can’t be stopped, Knight and Rain are being pulled deeper into their pasts, and realizing that sometimes too much broken can make a relationship impossible.

Then again sometimes it’s the broken parts of us that fit together best.


I am not sure how I felt about this one after reading it. Part of me loved it and the other part that it was a little much. 

I fell in love with Knight. He was the most believable of our two main characters. He is also one that makes you swoon. He is a lifeguard, one any girl would loved to be saved by.  His "baggage" is one that is far more realistic to how he is in the beginning of the book. I just wanted to reach in and give him a hug most of the time.

Rain is a character I liked for the most part. I did like that she was determined to be a great at her job and not let the boys show her up. It didn't bother me that she wouldn't have sex like it did other readers. Her reasoning with her baggage is what got to me. She blames herself for an accident that resulted in a death. It's made out that it is her boyfriend at first. We are led to believe that it was a serious relationship. Then we find out that the accident happened THE DAY he asked her out. Actually it happened about five minutes before it all happened. All I could think was SERIOUSLY? 

There is other things things that go on within the story that just add to the drama. I thought these were a little much and took more away from the story. It made it all very soap opera-ish. 

Overall it wasn't a bad read, just some of the details were a bit ridiculous. I just thought they were taken a little far and made the book just a little over the top. I would say check it out for Knight. He is what kept the story afloat.
