The more lines they cross, the deeper they get…

Top cadet Lana Marsden lives by the rules. The most important rule of all: no messing around with an officer. She learned that one the hard way.

Now her only desire is to survive the grueling DEEP Training program and leave that scandalous past behind.

When she reports to Station Six amid wild rumors of erotic hazing rituals an

Lana Marsden is looking for a fresh start, one where her past is left behind. She’s focused and ready to take on the training of her life—her future life. She just needs to make it through the twelve week DEEP Training Program and she’ll be ready to move forward, living and working in deep space.

Lana’s training will be held on the notorious Station Six—where wild rumors of exotic hazing rituals and sadomasochistic games occur. Lana doesn’t believe the rumors, her brother is a trainer on Station

This book was SO what the doctor ordered for me!! I was in need of something completely different to really grab my attention, and Jaine Diamond did just that with this incredible debut novel that will leave readers panting, tied in knots, and cursing how quickly that last page showed up! Lana Marsden is a textbook strong heroine that I just loved, and Catch is the perfect blend of twisted and deliciously sexy. Top that off with a completely unique storyline set in the cosmos, a

When I first read about this book I had no idea it was set in the future. How cool is that!! It's been a while since I have read any sci-fi type of book and it was really entertaining. I. The beginning you are given a lot of background story and information to get you caught up to the times they are in. And the DEEP program. Lana is just starting her rounds in the DEEP and she is determined to complete the program so she can be launched into deep space and start completing missions.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This book captured my attention from the first page to the last-- so much so that when I came from work, I left the TV off and just powered up the Kindle.

To me, this book is about finding yourself, finding what you need and who you need. Lana is searching for herself, a place to belong, of someone to call her own. Lana has always felt as though she's an afterthought - especially within her own family. Joining the ISC has gi

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review.
I was surprised by this book, I did not realize it was set in the future and in space. I use to love watching Deep Space Nine, a Star Trak spinoff and always wondered what it would be like to live in the future. This story takes me there, right into the DEEP.
Lana Marsden is running from her past and right into the DEEP, away from her family and the past she wants to forget. So while she is training with

I have mixed feelings about Jaine Diamond’s DEEP. This book is hot. It’s sexy. It has the troubled hero that we come to expect with BDSM erotica, who isn’t a borderline abusive asshole. Our heroine isn’t some fresh-plucked flower that’s new to sex and gratingly innocent. She’s young and maybe a bit naive, but she’s also independent, strong-willed, and all about kicking ass in ISC training and finding herself. Catch and Lana’s relationship will have you sweatin

I have read many erotica, few of them BDSM because I never got into that style. This book was interesting though. Catch was the catch for me. He was so vulnerable. I wanted more of his story actually. This is the fifth book I've read from this author and she definitely has a way of writing complex and intriguing men. I honestly don't know why spanking and pain is a thing. I grew up getting a sweet cut ass for crap I did so the idea of that being pleasurable is a foreign concept for me. I underst ...more

I’m sitting here thinking about Deep and not really sure how I feel. I knew upfront that this was a “to be continued” book. And while I was expecting a cliffhanger I prayed that we were getting a series. I like the writing, the story, and the characters development. I like just about everything until the last chapter or so. I’m trying but can’t wrap my head around the ending at all. I’m not saying it is bad it just isn’t sitting right. So…

If you are looking for something hot and I mean HOT to read this winter, you have to go check out this book. I'm not a prude, but I typically don't read a ton of erotica because too often the author does nothing but write sex scene after sex scene and that's it. So why am I so adamant about recommending this book? Because it's not only written well, but the sex scenes include more than just a description of what's happening. The author is smart b

“Deep” by Jaine Diamond is a debut science fiction story that is the first in a series. It details cadet Lana Marsden’s journey through her DEEP (Deep Space Extra-Vehicular and Emergency Preparedness) training and the obstacles she has to hurdle…both personally and professionally. Finding a man who tempts her to ignore all of her hard-won personal rules and draws her deeper and deeper into a darkly sensual exploration threatens to derail all of her plans and forces her to decide what s

The first song that comes on as I sit here getting ready to write this review was Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You. Yes, originally sang by Dolly.

As the song plays it kind of goes hand and hand with the book Deep by Jaine Diamond.

I feel sad that this story has ended. I wasn’t read to for it to end, but I couldn’t wait to get to the best parts either.



I have read a lot of books lately and the writing styles compared to this book is nothing but amateurs. Jaine Diamond sh

Romance Between The Sheets


I am not a space geek but wholly Frak this was a really surprising and great romantic read with erotic scenes and emotional power plays between the two main characters.

This is the first romance novel I have read that is set in space so to speak, I admit I did get a little bogged down at the start with all the descriptions of the station and how the whole centre is set up and the cadet program but then we moved onto the central characters and it blew me away.

What did I just read?!! I was so confused at first, because I've never read a book that took place in space!! I was thinking "ship" like in the water, not "ship" like spaceship!! I re-read the beginning more than once to make sure I understood! LOL A very different beginning of a book that quickly turned SCORCHING!!!

Lana is a cadet at the beginning of her DEEP training. Her brother "First" aka Adam, is also on the same ship, outranking her, of course. This is the first time they've been togethe

She has asked her brother about them since he is a trainer at Station Six but he just tells her it is not what it seems.

An incredibly hot, steamy book that has a strong romantic underlying. At first the attraction between Lana and Catch seems entirely physical, however very quickly it is revealed that they are both attracted to each other on an emotional level. By the end of the book I was screaming at both Lana and Catch wanting…needing them to finally admit how they feel about one another. I am not usually a fan of science fiction books, however this one contained very little science fiction in my opinion. Othe ...more
Amanda Lee Disheveled Book Blog
This book was not at all what I had expected. I'm not entirely sure what erotica sub genre this book would go under "futuristic", maybe? It's not quiet dystopian but sort of has that feeling. The story in general is good but it's pure erotica romance. Catch and lana's story is intense, scorching hot, and slightly D/s. Beyond the sex though their relationship is infuriating, they lack good communication and they both need to learn to trust more.

The writing is great and the story beyond the sex an

A very slow start for me in this book, but once things clear and you have the background on things it starts to heat up and heat up quickly! Lana wants away from earth, her parents and most of all the memories that are there! Once she makes it to Station Six, where her big brother is, she finds out that life on earth wasn't for her and where she is now is what she wants to be doing! Or is it? First step in and things get a bit twisted and from there on in it just keeps going crazy all around her ...more

I don't know how to think of this book. It wasn't exactly what I expected. The space setting kinda threw me off for a second. The characters were a little less fleshed out than Jaine's other series that I also recently read. I'll probably read the next one but I disliked a lot more characters than I liked.

A good debut novel. I have some issues with the end but I believe it can be rectified in the next book.

Yea that's right a cliffhanger of sorts.
