    An emotional and compelling single parents romance that will have your knees weak from the fabulous way J. Daniels writes and brings characters together that have such intense chemistry, both emotionally and physically...

    Anyone who knows me, knows that single parent trope romances is one of my top, top favorites and when Nate and Jenna were introduced in Four Letter Word I fell in love with them from the start. I will be honest (when am I not), for some odd reason I thought Nate would end up w

    My heart had become its own protector. It let me love, but it held me back. It hoped, just like it always did, but it wouldn’t believe anymore in the certainty of what I was feeling. With every wish it allowed, it whispered caution behind it. Be careful. You know how I can break.

    J. Daniels has finished off the ”Dirty Deeds” series with a story that will have your hearts soaring and your temperatures rising. I have been anxiously anticipating

    In Too Deep was a heartfelt romance that had you rooting for these characters from the very beginning. It was touching with humorous moments and you wanted nothing more than to stay in the moment that these characters have created.

    It’s been two years since the death of his wife and Nathan Bell is still trying to get his life back in order. When his parents decide to put their foot down and make him take back control of his life and take care of his two year old daughter, Nate knows that things

    Seriously, there is nothing sweeter than reading about amazing children in books. I'm such a sucker for them. And these kids... top notch!

    The blurb for DOWN TOO DEEP summarized events quite succinctly, so I'm gonna delve into how this story made me feel. Soooo good!! Between Nathan finding his love for life again, learning about his daughter, falling more in love with her than ever, how could I not feel absolutely incredible while reading this book? Add in Jen

    I have been waiting for Nathan and Jenna. For so long. Nathan is a widower, alone with his two old daughter Marley, and Jenna is a single mother to her eight year old twins Olivia and Oliver.
    Jenna is a wonderful mother who enjoys being just that. A dedicated and loving mother whereas Nathan has other priorities. Work and keeping himself busy so he can’t think about his own failures and guilt especially when it comes to him bonding with his daughter

    This was my first book by J. Daniels and I really enjoyed it! We got a super cute romance and some adorable children. I am trash for single parent romances so I had high hopes for this one. There were some things that kept me from loving it completely but nevertheless, I enjoyed my time reading this. 

    I loved Jenna from the beginning. She was selfless and just so damn caring. The amount of love she gave her kids and even Marley warmed my heart so much! I couldn't get enough of her relationship wi

    “I keep holding back with you. Can you tell?” Nathan bent his arm and braced it on the door above my head, his finger slowly gliding over my hand, my wrist, the sides of my elbow. “It’s not because I don’t want something to happen. There is little I’ve wanted more than this."

    DOWN TOO DEEP is the fourth and final book in J. Daniels Dirty Deeds series. Dare I say she saved the best for last? Nate and Jenna's story is filled with heartache and hope, closed doors and new beginnings.

    Heartwarming, spicy, and adorable!

    Down Too Deep is a deliciously charming, uplifting tale that introduces us to the grieving, workaholic, restauranteur Nathan and the kindhearted, dependable, single mother Jenna as they discover the power of friendship, the pull of attraction, and the benefits of being a team.

    The writing is humorous and light. The characters are solid, supportive, and endearing. And the plot is an enticing, engaging mix of life, loss, family, palpable chemistry, tender moments,

    So many feels for Down Too Deep by J.Daniels.

    The storyline is well written, emotional, sweet and all the characters touched my heart.

    From the first page my interest was captured, watching both Nathan/Nate and Jenna struggle with life and everything they had going on touched me.
    Nate and Jenna are likable, relatable characters that I easily connected with. They made me smile, they made me cry, and they made me swoon. I enjoyed their friendship, their honesty and I loved how Jenna was abl

    I have to confess it's been so long since I read the first few of these books. Then I had to wait for the next book in the series and I lost track of the releases. But when I read the blurb for this I knew I had to have it right now.

    I was prepared for heartbreak and devastation from the first page. But for the first half of the book I was in this happy, cute fluff story that had a really sad backstory. And I figured I was going to be alright reading this without tissues.

    Since Down Too Down was announced, I’d been dying to get my hands on this story! When I received the news that I got an ARC, I was overjoyed! There’s something so magical about J. Daniels’s books and Down Too Deep is another one of those little gems! As much as I treasured the previous novels in the Dirty Deeds Series, this one is without a doubt my new favorite! This story is charged with all the feels and I had a constant smile on my face throughout my read from the beauty of it!

    Let me just start this review with the fact that I'm not usually a fan of the single parent trope. I have enjoyed some in the past, but I don’t intentionally seek them out. Down Too Deep surprised me in a good way. I was worried that I might be a little lost since I had only read the 1st book in the series, but it can definitely be enjoyed as a standalone. Previous characters and couples do appear however, so it might be a bit spoilery if you haven't read the other books.

    It has been more than four years ago that I last read a book by J. Daniels, however I couldn't resist when I read the synopsis of Down Too Deep. I love single parent romances, and the fact that both characters are a single parent is just icing on the cake. Down Too Deep was a great contemporary romance with fun and interesting characters.

    Review: Wow! I loved this one and finished it in one sitting. It had me feeling all the feels as it discussed difficult subjects. This book has mental illness, suicide (TW), and an absentee father and that just touches on a small amount of what's going on in this book. Even with all of that, the love story is one that will have you swooning and unable to put this one down.

    I loved this book! I know this is a series but this was my first read by J Daniels and I’m obsessed now. Nathan and Jenna are my favorite single parents from any romance novel, I’ve read! Jenna was so incredibly sweet. She was an amazing mom, a loving character and great with Marley. Nathan made my heart melt. In the beginning he was a little misunderstood and just all over the place, but watching him get his act together for his daughter made him a great dad. Jenna and Nathan had incredible che ...more

    It's not often I classify a book as perfect. In fact, it's really rare. Reading is so subjective and I believe our experience with every book can be greatly determined by what is happening in our lives at that given time. That being said, perhaps if I'd picked this one up a few weeks prior or a few weeks from now, maybe I'd have a different outlook on it.

    But honestly, I doubt that. Down Too Deep is just perfect.
