Why are you so patient with me?"
"Because you're worth it."

I just knew I'd end up falling hard for Stone Sutter, and I was definitely not wrong. He's definitely going up there with my top favorite heroes of the series (though admittedly Logan Edgington is still my #1). But I digress...

It's hard to believe that this is now book 11 in the series and it's still just as good if not getting better with each book. Stone, definitely caught my attention in Wicked for You. There's

I always wondered what the deal was with Sweet Pea as she cameoed in other stories, especially in Axel's telling. She was under the protection and care of Axel when he fell in love with another woman. Lily has gone through some traumatic events that have shaped who she is as we get to know her. She is very slow to trust and needs the structure and care that a dominant provides. She is hiding from her past but unfortunately, nothing can stay hidden forever. Stone enters her life as he is forced t ...more

Falling in Deeper is a standalone and is part of the Wicked Lovers series. This is Lily and Stone’s story.

I have to say, Falling in Deeper is probably one of the darkest books in the series. I haven’t read the entire series, but I’m working on it.

Falling in Deeper has all the elements of a good book, with a damsel in distress, secondary characters from the previous books and a broody Hero. It will put a smile on your face. Lily is on the run. She changed her name and does

Yum! Sexy and suspenseful! Falling in Deeper was mouthwatering romance that hit all the good spots. Sexy hero, resilient heroine, luscious and emotional sex scenes, a little danger, and some surprises along the way, too. Gah! Yeah, it was a fun ride!

The quick of it is that Stone, well, he messed up a while back and landed himself in prison and he's been given that out. If he can convince a reluctant on-the-run witness to test

Running away and changing her name after witnessing a violent act, Lily Taylor’s found a home with her Club Dominion family. Not one to trust easily, Lily doesn’t get close to anyone—ever. But when Lily’s found by her nemesis—the person she’s been running from—the last person she should turn to is Stone Sutter. But there’s just something about Stone that Lily can’t stay away from—something big. Something like comfort and hope.

I have been reading and enjoying The Wicked Lover’s series by Shayla Black going back several years. As with all book series, you have ones that hit the mark and really resonate with you and Falling In Deeper is one of those books for me. It’s now up there with my favorites in this series. I loved everything about this enthralling, sexy story from start to finish. It kept me guessing and I was surprised on more than one occasion
Shayla Black's brilliance really shines through in FALLING IN DEEPER! Every emotion...every feeling...every touch was palpable. The passion, the intensity, the emotion flew off of every page, reminding us what a WICKED genius Shayla Black really is.

"I can't even tell you how much I think you'll be hurting me." Those dark eyes of his seemed to take her apart without a word. Before she could stop him, he brushed his thumb over her bottom lip.

I'm done with this series. The heroine was immature and made stupid decisions, and I wanted to toss my kindle on the floor.

I can't remember the last book in this series that I really enjoyed, time to move on.

Falling in Deeper, is part of the Wicked Lover Series, I was reading these back in my 20’s and I l loved them.

It was seriously a delight to go back to read a Shayla book, who doesn’t love going back to something you used to hire out from the library when eBooks were just a thought!

Falling is about Stone and Lily, I really enjoyed them as a couple and apart. They had brilliant sexy chemistry. Who doesn’t love that right? Shayla has a talent, I loved reading about

Breathtaking, passionate, sexy, sinful and suspenseful!

After witnessing a gruesome act of violence Lily changes her identity and runs. She doesn't trust easily and she is very closed off. Getting close to people is not something she never does. However, once she is found by the man that is her personal nightmare, she turns to Stone Sutter. Lily soon finds out that there is something about Stone that she cant stay away from, no matter how much she wants to.

DNF.... no, just fuck no! If I cant connect with any of the characters, the story is a waste. And I definitely cant CONNECT with these people.This entire situation is beyond fucked. These men, this little clan and their whole life is just disturbing. Especially how they choose to deal with Lily's situation. Being a submissive and wanting to be owned,like some kind of material things, is sick. Having your owner run your life and make all your choices and decisions is twisted. Sorry not sorry. ...more

Sweet Pea yay! I was so glad this was the next character because of the book before I wanted her to find someone who was just right for her. Axel was great but he wasn’t what she needed.
Before I move on from that, I just wanna say the way they portrayed Axel I didn’t like well in this book he wasn’t her boyfriend he was her DOM and he did what he thought she needed.

Now do I think she is better suited for Stone for sure! I liked him from the get go!

Great story great narration.

Shayla Black is one of my FAVORITE erotic novelists, especially on the subject of BDSM and Dominants and Submissives. I feel like she really understands the dynamic and writes the scenes in new and creative ways that make me read more of her novels hoping for similar dynamics of characters and scenes of that nature. This book however, was so disappointing to me. I have read all the other Wicked Lovers books and the first couple were by far my favorite. As the texts have progressed, I feel Black ...more

Lily Taylor, also known as Sweet Pea, has been running for years from her past.  She is being hunted by a criminal and the FBI wants her to testify against him.  She has tried before and people get hurt.  Stone Sutter is a hacker who's been given a "get out of jail free" card.  He just has to convince Lily to testify, but it's harder than it looks because Lily doesn't trust easily and has absolutely no reason to trust him.  She trusts her former Dom, Axel but that took years to build.

It's starts with Lily Taylor witnessing something so horribly violent that she high tails it out of town. She ends up getting a completely different identity and tries to stay low key but quickly realizes she's needs some help. That help is from the one and only, sexy ex con, Stone Sutter.

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, pain, suspense, twist & turns, seduction, secrets, lies, betrayal, and heartbreak.

This is Lily and Stone’s story. Lily ran away and was starting over. When her past comes back for her she turns to Stone for help. Little does she know Stone was looking for her but he will he turn her in? Stone is trying to keep Lily at arm’s length but can he? The chemistry between these two is off the charts.

You guys are going to bean me over the head since these are generally enjoyed books/series, but I read four or five chapters and just couldn't keep going or get into this one. I love romantic suspense and a well-written erotic scene can make me squirm in a good way. This writer has been good for both on occasions with me. I've read a handful of her Wicked Lovers series and enjoyed a few of them.

But, this go around, I kept getting hung up on the overall romance. They were only together a short ti

Falling in Deep by Shayla Black is a beautifully crafted love story.

Lilly Taylor has no shortage of traumatic experiences in her past. Broken emotionally by a drug lord who she thinks is trying to kill her, she goes into survival mode, finding refuge at a BDMS club. Then, Stone Sutter enters her life: Lilly’s savior.

Domineering, bad boy Stone Sutter started out with his own agenda: a get out of jail free card. However, his plan quickly shifts when the love bug bites him.

I seem to be going through this series backwards. I did this as an audio as I’m a HUGE fan of anything narrated by Christian Fox! If you’re considering an audio – just do it :)

I loved this book. It was a fast-paced, suspense filled story of Lily who was dealt a bad hand when she was a teenager and has been hiding from her past ever since. Survival is the name of the game, but in doing so she has not moved forward in her life merely existed and survived despite having doms loo

if you're a fan of this series, you knew Misty/Sweet Pea must've had a messed up life with how she reacts to people. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that Shayla Black would give her that messed up of a past. She's witnessed and been through things that would give even the strongest male nightmares and heart break.

First reviewed at Red Hot Books here:

Shayla Black’s Wicked Lovers series is one of my all-time favorites, but I have to admit, I wasn’t super excited to read Sweet Pea’s story. The bits we saw of her in Wicked For You, which was Axel and Mystery’s story, made me think she was going to be one of those needy, whiny heroines that I hate. Thankfully I was very wrong, and Falling in Deeper, the 11th book in the series, wound up near the top of my favorites ove
