New Release Review! IN TOO DEEP by Skye Jordan (Wildfire Lake #1)

In Too Deep cover

A fresh and sexy new series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Skye Jordan

I’ve got one hell of a life–the business of my dreams, a close-knit family, and the title of elusive but most-eligible bachelor in town.

The only thing I’m missing now is my heart. I gave it away as a teenager and never got it back.

I didn’t think I’d see that girl again. She was my best friend, my first love, the person I couldn’t wait to see arrive in June and couldn’t stand to see leave in September. But the summer she turned eighteen, she flew off to Paris and never looked back.

When she resurfaces twelve years later, I don’t want to want her. I don’t even want to care. I really just want my fucking heart back so I can move on with a normal life–marriage, kids. Hell, I’d settle for a cease-fire in my romantic life.

It turns out we’ve got a shared interest in her grandfather’s land. This could be the perfect opportunity to settle the past. Or it could be the biggest mistake of my life, the one that destroys my heart for good.

Books in the Wildfire Lake series can be read as stand alone novels.

In Too Deep is the start to a new series (Wildfire Lake) and a second chance romance–and I have to say, both of those facts have me pretty excited 🙂 Second chance romance, when done well, can be a lot of fun–and when that second chance romance is populated by secondary characters who you also want to see get an HEA? That’s pretty much a win-win in my book!

Laiyla and Levi didn’t work out the first time around for the classic–mainly because it’s the most believable–reason; they were too young the first time around and their lives weren’t quite their own yet. Of course, by the time the story proper begins (there is a prologue almost seven years in the past) Laiyla’s nearing thirty, and as such should be beyond the reach of her parents. She isn’t, though–she’s still working for their hotel business–and Levi is 100% right to question if they should even bother this time around either. No one’s getting any younger, and he’s the only one of his siblings to not be married and starting a family (can I just say–I *love* that this time it’s the guy who really wants kids?) and yeah, if she’s not going to be on the same page then no, they shouldn’t even get started again.

So, Layla’s got some thinking to do. And some growing up to do, and some standing up for herself–and for Levi to do. If only he didn’t keep distracting her with sexy times…gosh darn him 😉

In Too Deep is a steamy, sexy start to a new series, and I can’t wait to return to Wildfire Lake to watch Chole and KT (OMG, now I *really* need to know what KT stands for!) find their HEAs–fingers crossed that it’ll be with a cop and an ER doctor, respectively… 🙂

In unrelated news, man, do I want to go on vacation. Curse this cursed pandemic, getting in the way of my own lakefront vacay…
