Dark. Powerful. Dangerous.

Philip Murphy has all of Chicago under his thumb. Except me.

We met in a perfect storm of violence and lust. He saved me and then disappeared from my life. Now I pretend I never knew that kind of darkness. I focus on midterms and campus parties, as if they can wipe the slate clean.

Then he turns up outside my dorm room—wounded and barely conscious.

You'd get more character depth and back story, if you at least read books four through six.
It's not a must though, I'm just picky.

This is more than just a story, it has a pulse! This story reintroduces you to Ella aka Claire and takes you through her childhood and then how she came to know Philip. It can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend you start this series from the beginning with Rough.

Ella is thrust into a world of violence when she is kidnapped by men her dad owes money to. They literally throw her to the wolves and expect her to pay his debt with her body. Luckily she is saved by Shelly, a prostitute w

Deep is an incredibly erotic, emotionally captivating story that left me craving for more. Skye Warren consistently delivers raw, powerful, and seductive writing that grabs ahold of the reader with full force and doesn't let go. Ella and Philip met during a tumultuous time three years ago, surrounded by danger and uncertainty. They had a deep, unexplainable connection even when they were practically strangers, but due to their circumstances, nothing came of it and they went back to their separat ...more

5 Deep, Dark & Sexy Stars!

This is my second Skye Warren book and it’s definitely not my last. I was hooked from the first page until the last. And even then I wanted more! I loved every second of this intense roller coaster and would love to take the ride again. Philip is dark, dangerous, and so sinfully sexy. Ella is the beautifully broken girl, that tugs at your heart. You feel every emotion that she does as we follow her through her journey.

Philip Murphy is dark, dangerous and sexy. Ella

ARC kindly provided by Skye Warren in exchange for an honest review.



Intriguing, raw and captivating, this book sizzles with intensity and achingly real characters! Do not miss out! I can honestly say that this is one of my favorite Skye Warren books! She managed to create a believable storyline and at the same time blend it with her usual edgy writing style!
Claire is a young girl that finds out early in her life that she was adopted. Since that day she knew, felt, that she didn't matter at all.

This is not my first Skye Warren book, though it is my first book in the Chicago underground series.
I saw reviews on Goodreads where people were recommending to read the books in order, but let me tell you, you can read this as a standalone if you really want to.
I was able to put all the pieces together even If I haven't read the previous books within the series.
First few chapters were really hard to read... dark and gritty with kidnapping involved, I felt my stomach turn a few times.

This book hooked me from the very beginning. When Ella is kidnapped as a teenager, this book sets off on a dark and twisted journey. Phillip kept her safe until the danger was over, but then disappeared from her life almost completely with no contact except for a sporadic postcard. Ella somehow scratches the pieces of her life together and has found a semblance of normalcy in college life. She’s obviously surprised then when, years later, Phillip appears at her dorm door bloodied and barely brea ...more

“Deep” by Skye Warren belongs to the “Chicago Underground” series but can be read as a Standalone. – which basically I did – as it was my first book by this author ever.

Normally I am not into “mop” or “crime boss” novels – and it was honestly actually my co-blogger that requested that book first. But when the time for receiving the ARC came – she was busy so I volunteered to read the book to finish the review on time.

Finishing that book I am left with on word

Why is it that the thrill of a dangerous man or profession makes it seem so exciting?
In this book,the hero is a crime boss who personified the meaning of the words "crime boss",there is danger to him,he has killed ,he also has a deep love of family.He also has a deep obession with the heroine of this dark mafia romance.Dark romances is usually not my read of choice,I prefer the lighter romances,the less brutal and gritty.But,this book really sucked me in to the story of a young girl who was kidn

DNF @ 64%. I never felt the connection between the h and H. I kept on trying to keep with it, but I just never felt it. He was supposed to be a mysterious bad guy, but I didn't get his obsession with the h. He was just cold IMO. I started to skim to see if it got any better, and it doesn't seem like it does. I didn't like the h much either. She was so desperate for any affection that she would act tough one second but then revert back to doormat status the next. Sorry, I couldn't do it....

"I was always coming for you, kitten. You were always mine."

This book started out really good, I was hooked and the story really piqued my interest. Ella/Claire finds out something about her family that breaks her heart but also really explains why her parents are treating her the way they do. This results in Ella rebelling and hanging out with the wrong crowd. She find herself in a very dangerous situation that wasn't her doing.

“He kissed me as if to prove his words, a research paper written with his tongue and his teeth, an argument he made, an invasion of my mouth.”

Philip is possessive, controlling, and sexy as hell. He gets what he wants, whenever he wants it. So when he meets Ella the first time, he is taken back by his reasoning to let her go. But only tell he is ready. Ella is a young women forced to become and adult way too early in anyone’s eyes. She escapes danger, only to be consumed by the devil himself (or

Skye Warren's books always have me teetering on the edge between shock and bliss. This time, the edge has a name.

Philip.

Dark, toxic, overpoweringly sensual Philip.

The author's writing style is melancholic and knowledgeable in the flaws of life. Incendiary when it comes to carnal descriptions that never fail to grab you by the emotions.

The story of Philip and Ella was started in a different book, so this one retraces those first steps from Ella's perspective to rekindle the memories and the feel

Enjoyed it fully, but the NA feel wasn't for me. Plus there were plenty of plot inconsistencies. In afterthought it didn't made much sense, outside the romance.

Then she is taken to pay a debt she had nothing to do with. Ella fights to keep her innocence and Shelly comes to her side. This is when she first meet a Philip.

*I received an ARC for my honest review*

Philip - Dark and mysterious. He had the city of Chicago in his pocket, nothing can get to him, or so he thought until one night a girl shows up at his house needing help. Can he do what is right and stay away from her?

Ella - An outcast, not wanted by her mother and felt disconnected to her adoptive parents. All she ever wanted was someone to love her. Could Philip be the person to love her?

The blurb is what had me intrigued, but the first couple of pages

I have no idea what other people were reading, because what I read was not great at all. This story line jumped all over the place and had no depth. I swear this story made no sense. I kept thinking that it would eventually get better. This is my first book that I have read in this series, and quite frankly it will be the last. The portrayal of the male as an alpha missed so many marks. The female was simpering one minute, trying to be strong the next, and lost other times. It was just too many ...more

Skye Warren does it again with the story of Phillip and Ella. I was immediately pulled in and could not book down this book. The story is deep, dark and thrilling. The characters are complex and riveting. You are thrust into there world like you are right there with them. This is not a fairy tale, but Phillip is my prince!
