The plan was never to fall in love... The plan was to avenge my father's death.

Hell, I knew better. Never fall in love with the mark.

For ten years I have plotted and planned my revenge against Rafe DeMarco. He took the most important thing in my life away from me and I meant to return the favor.

Except, I was wrong...

Now, I need his protection. And I'm the fool who went an

So Deeper is the second part of The riveting "Deep duet" by M. Malone and Nana Malone.
And after where we left this I have been gagging to get stuck right back into this enthralling story and I just have to say Deeper certainly didn't disappoint, it just keeps getting better and better.
So we start back off here exactly where Deep left us with Diana on the move along with that ever so revealing flash-drive and with Rafe not far behind in hot pursui

“I belong to you. You belong to me. And I will maim or kill anyone who tries to hurt either of you. Understood?” - Rafe

So if you read the last book, you know that Diana figured out how totally wrong she was about Rafe. The man she had gotten to know was nothing like what she believed him to be and really, Rafe was exactly as he seemed - honorable, respectful, kind, considerate and protective. So… did I like her better this go around? Well, not at first. Despite knowing that Rafe was one of t

descriptionDEEPER picks up right after book one. Diana is on the run after stealing from Rafe. Some new knowledge has her rethinking everything she thought she knew about her life and that leads her back into Rafe's arms. Rafe is confused and angry but still very much in love with Diana. He wants her to trust him enough to tell him what she is hiding. When Diana's past comes knocking on the door Rafe and company step up to the plate to help take them down.


So I enjoyed this one mar

Deep did not really impress me much but it ended with a cliffhanger and I had to know what happens next. Deeper was so much better in terms of plot and characters. What I got in Deeper was a bundle of thrilling suspense packed with nail biting and perilous charged plot. I felt the adrenaline and palpable action coursing through out the book. I was really pleased reading the conclusion to such a seductive and highly charged series. M. Malone and Nana Malone are a dynamic duo who gave a focused an ...more

At the start of this, I was really engaged with the story and wondering where things would go for Rafe and Diana. I wanted to know what was going to happen, and how they were going to sort things out, while allowing Diana and Rafe to have their happily ever after.

It was intense and engaging. And, then, it wasn't.

For some reason, about 50% into this title, I felt like I had read the story before. It didn't feel fresh and I felt like I knew what was going t

This is book two in The Deep Duet series. Make sure you read In Deep, a novella and Deep book one before you read this one.

After reading Deep I couldn’t wait to jump into this story. I wasn’t disappointed as it was a great read.

Deeper is an intense read that I literally inhaled. I couldn’t get enough of Rafe and his alpha male personality. Swoon.

I absolutely loved this series. This is probably my favourite book in the series. I’m looking forward to reading more from these authors.

Wow what a book, I really enjoyed this Duet especially Diana and Rafe they were great together. “ O what a tangled web we weave when first practice to deceive “ I think that describes Diana’s part in a large portion of the Duet. This has excitement, suspense hot sex and I loved Rafe. I’ve decided that we would all love someone like Rafe. The chemistry between Rafe and Diana is combustible I felt the sparks through my kindle.

Malone squared has become adept at setting the stage to leave readers wanting more. The Deep Duet is the latest example in their nailbiter storytelling. Deep left me at the edge of a cliff and Deeper had me diving right in. Diana and Rafe stepped into a maze of dangerous secrets. Rafe is no superhero, but like Batman his secrets run deep and his soul is quite tortured. A thirst for the truth has landed Diana in over her head. Vengeance drove her, now danger haunts her and only a ghost can save h ...more
I thoroughly enjoyed the wrap-up to Rafe's Story. Throw in bad guys and a secretive government agency, add a man on a mission to thwart the bad guys and mix it all together and you have the ingredients for a TV Spy Series. Best of all, the heroine was a bad-ass! Book 2 of 2

"The adrenaline rush Deeper delivers is so powerful and many times brutal that competes equally the sizzling romance between the main heroes. The Malones ends the series with the most unforgettable story."

"I received a complimentary copy of this book and have volunteered to leave a review."

After reading Deep it was impossible not to read Deeper and I am very thankful that Miss Nana Malone trusted me with an advanced review copy of that last book. I was intrigued after Diana's and Rafe's story

WOW! I have to say, Deeper is a phenomenal book to read. It was suspenseful and entertaining and easily kept me on the edge of my seat; it's just an all-round great book to read.

Deeper picks up right where Deep left off and takes us to the end of Rafe and Diana's story. Deeper is a very good addition to this wonderful series about reformed assassins!! Deeper was a solid conclusion to the Deep Duet, but it wasn't as action packed as I thought it was going to be. I found Deeper to be more focused on setting the record straight between Rafe and Diana...and there was a lot to set straight. Whoa!!

Deeper is the concluding part of this diet and they must be read in order. Diana is on the run, after following through with her plan, she discovers that the truth is far from her perceptions. Coming to terms with the revelations she has stolen from Rafe’s safe she must accept that her belief that Rafe was responsible for her predicament was totally misplaced.

The Malones definitely took things up a few notches with Deeper. The way this story came together was enthralling. The first book in this duet set the story up well and then this book kicked things into gear. This has been my favorite book of the series so far.

Secrets are exposed, the risks are greater, and things are about to turn deadly. Diana needs to learn to trust and Rafe needs to learn to let go of control. Diana was incredible. Tough, smart, brave. I am in love with Rafe. He was so hard,

I jumped on this book as soon as it hit my Kindle, but as it was during my move, I had to re-read it in order to write this review. No hardship. I love these Blake Security books. So. Hard.

In Deeper, we see the conclusion to Rafe and Diana's story. It picks up just after Diana has absconded with Rafe's safe contents, and he's waking up from being drugged. It's not just any woman that can get one over on master assassin Rafe, so he's pretty confounded and pissed.

Meanwhile, Diana is in more troub

Like the first part of this duet, Deeper is a bit dark, a lot steamy, and emotional. It's also action packed and there's even a couple of surprises along the way. Rafe is hard as nails and unyielding except where Diana is concerned. I did have a hard time with how many things he seemed to overlook with her, but there's a chemistry between them that is undeniable. It took me awhile to warm up to Diana, and while her actions don't always make sense, the reasons for them do. Some of my favorite par ...more

A few weeks back I’ve read Deep, which ended in a huge cliffhanger. Luckily, the wait for Deeper wasn’t that long, because I really needed the second part of Rafe and Diane’s story. Part One was fast-paced and all, Part Two is even better.
“He didn’t know what the fuck she was doing, but he was going to get her. Because after everything, he sure as shit wasn’t letting her go.”

I’ve been dying for this book after the ending of Deep and I don’t think I put this down once.

Rafe finally gets a clue as to what Diana has been up to and he doesn’t react quite like I was expecting. With now both her life and countless others in danger, Rafe has no choice but to ask for the help of his family and team. Rafe is a sweetheart in all his possessive, alpha glory. I mean the guy’s just about perfect anyway but with his protective instincts kicking in big time, he’s one hot, dominant

Oh my goodness, this book.... Deeper picks up right where Deep left us readers waiting and wanting more. This addition to the duet did not disappoint!. It was sexy and sweet with a mystery and drama. Rafe and Diana's biggest problem is themselves trying to protect each other against her brothers. Rafe is tough on the outside but a big marshmallow for those he loves. Diana is a resourceful smart woman. Can the Steele team protect them and take out the threat (as assassins are wont to do.) I am lo ...more

This is the end of Rafe and Diane's story. Deeper picks up where Deep ended. Diane had just learned about her family and what she thought she knew is nothing compared to what she found out.
Rafe finds Diane missing with things from Rafe's safe. What did she take and will he ever find her and save her from herself?

This is fast passed, the story was strong and the characters kept things going well. I did enjoy this story and the final chapter.

I enjoyed the finale to this duet. It was nitty gritty at times and a little over the top at others. Once Rafe knows the story behind Diana, he is balls to the wall determined to make her his. The way he goes about it is the reason to read.
Diana is determined to protect Rafe regardless of what it costs her. Will Rafe stand for it? Read on to find out how their story concludes.

I am truly loving the men of ORUS! This series has been great to read (interconnected standalone) and I absolutely loved Rafe's story! He has been through so much and deserved to find his HEA. Diana was truly his match! Another great read from the Malones!

Happy reading!

Wow! This is even better than the first one! I was pulled in from the start and I honestly couldn’t put it down. I read the whole thing in one night. It was so damn good! It was incredibly steamy and so full of action. I just couldn’t get enough. Really excellent series! Five stars all the way.

I had high hopes for this book, but to me, it just seemed to fall flat. Maybe it’s because I was pressed for time to get this review done or maybe my expectations were to high. Regardless, I found myself often reading the same sentences over and over and over and over again, not firmly grasping what was going on.

And to me, there were just too many sex scenes. I actually didn’t read the last chapter of the book, anxious for it to be over. Everything was settled, and to be honest, this book has o
