Dani knows how to write extremely hot and taboo stories and this is one of her best in my opinion.

The past few months have been hard on Melody after her mum disappeared with the family fortune and her and her father were left with little choice but to leave London and return to his home town in America. Thrust into a new life with no friends and a father trying to recapture his youth the only person she wants to know is her Uncle Cain. Although they are not related by blood a relationship betwe

"Deep Cut" is the story of Melody and Cain.

A taboo uncle-step niece romance with loads of longing, forbidden sex, some unexpected drama, DD-LG kink, roleplay, breeding, hymen surrender and a HEA.

It was Ok for me, but I did like the epilogues.

Smoking HOT and taboo for sure!
Cain turns obsessed the moment that he meets Melody and knows that she will be his, its only a matter of time. Melody has just moved to the states with her dad after her mom ran off and took all their money. The moment that she meets Cain, she knows that he is different. The only thing is, he's older and her uncle. He might not be a blood related uncle, but what will everyone else think if they go forward with their feelings?? Guess what?? Cain doesn't care what everyone else thinks and will hav ...more
❤This book is EVERYTHING!❤
If you're looking for an amazing, insta-love, taboo story with an OTT, crazy, out-of-his-mind for the h, possessive, lumberjack who sheds a tear or two...look no further. Cain is one of the most insane for his woman H's I think I've ever read. I just can't express enough how much I loved this story.

-no cheating
-virgin h
-H has been celebate for over 10 years
-no abuse
-no OM/OW drama
-fantastic epilogues at 9 months & 20 years later

Dani Wyatt has managed to outdo her

OTT Axman

OTT hero who loves is younger heroine. This is heavy on Daddy, if that’s not your thing. Melody and Cain have an explosive and sexy relationship. It’s a bit taboo, but not really.
Naughty and beautiful!

Oh, yes, the little taboo relationship is quite naughty. The giant lumberjack lusting for the young daughter of his adopted brother has quite a bunch of provocative vibes. Yet the words are so lovely and the sentiments are all pretty, possessive and devoted.

Expect lots of graphic passion and bare breeding. The tender part is full of scenes with this man taking care of his woman in every way. I loved these moments with him thinking about how to take care of her, buying her

This was okay for a tabooish story but it wasn't as hawt as the first DW book I just read. There is a fine line between devotion and obsession. This one was just that much too far past the line that I wasn't as convinced the relationship dynamics weren't coercive and unhealthy.

Ok, so this started as an uncle book, but turned into a daddy book. And before everyone starts getting upset, they are not related….not related. I always like to state that multiple know, just in case. He knows he wants her and is biding his time, then his time arrives. His step brother asks him to watch her for the weekend…oh and she is 19, when she ask him what he wants, she opens the door for him to tell her exactly what he wants. By now….pretty sure that is obvious, but just in c ...more

WOW! What can I say except Dani Wyatt is still putting out sexy hot reads where he's over the top Alpha and Sexy AF.
This book is an off limits love story involving a big bearded lumberjack and his adopted brother's daughter. There is some serious over the top Alpha action as Cain Matthews makes known his wish for sweet Melody Lane.
Their love story leaves you breathless and turning the pages as fast as possible to see what happens next. And believe there is a lot happening in this book from begi

Great Book

Why Amazon insist on 20 words for a review via kindle, I don't know. Especially when I just want to say that I really enjoyed this book.
May 28, 2019 rated it it was amazing
A extremely hot, taboo read. Didn't want to put it down once I started. Cain is definitely all Alpha male, with insta love for the daughter of his adopted brother. But Melody is the perfect match of innocence he needs. Loved it!

I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Daddy huh? I didn't think I would like it at first but it was too hot to put down. On to the next lumberjack starting a fire.
Book Nook Kitten
Did not hold my attention. I love an older man with younger woman romance but unfortunately this is boring. An element of taboo, but not really because Cain's not her uncle, her father was Cain's adopted brother. So she's not blood related and she was born and raised in a different country, so she'd never even meet him. Not until she was almost nineteen. So it's a safe read as such. There are some hot scenes but it got so dull I didn't finish, which isn't good when it's so short but didn't keep ...more

Oh the Growling Lumberjacks!!!

Oh Dani knows the key to my heart. Take an innocent who has been through so much, add in a growling alpha male who wants to worship said innocent and end in HEA. Swoon!!! That is what Dani gives us with this one. Cain and Melody were made for each other, their coupling might be a little more taboo than normal, but the love that each exudes for the other is what makes my heart melt with each page I read. The devotion Cain gives to everything that he does, having Melo

Hot Lumber-Daddy

Well wow i need to find me an alpha lumber jack who growls at me and treats me like a princess. This is written well and i thoroughly enjoyed it. This could be read as taboo to some but the way it is handled it is a beautiful story. Cain is a simple guy with simple needs until Melody comes along. This is there story from the good, bad and really really hott!!. This maybe a short story but it is a steamy little bit of naughtiness to lose yourself on for a few hours. Dani Wyatt ha

Loved this wonderful taboo story.

Melody and her dad moved back to his hometown after her mother left him. Her dad was adopted when he was little and then the couple ended up having a baby boy of their own as well. Her Uncle Cain is handsome and maybe to some people a little scary, but Melody has not been able to stop dreaming about him since they moved into the old family home. Cain has felt possessive and crazy ever since his niece came to live in the small town he calls home. He's decided that

A hot lumberjack Daddy!!!

Cain has always been happy with his lot in life. By day works in the wood at night he writes fairy tales. This mountain man is about to get his HEA in the form of Melody. His adoptive brothers daughter. It's a serious case of something being so wrong it right. I cant say how much I loved this book. It was steamy and sweet. Over the top Male who is already ready to defend his woman... or his princess. :)
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Deep Cut by Dani Wyatt is book 2 in the Men of the Woods Series. This is the story of Melody Lane and Cain Matthews. This can be a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Melody had what she thought was a great life but then her parents split up and now she is with her dad who has moved to the backwoods where she meets Cain for the first time. Cain his her 'Uncle' but her feelings she is having isn't very niece like and Cain isn't feeling to Uncle like.
Quick hot Read.
Preposterous — spoilers

I could not finish, it was just tooo nope. So many implausible elements and suspensions of reality have to be made to make this even remotely readable. The niece thing, ick and the he like gloated about it it wa just all gross. This book wasn’t romantic, wasn’t instalove it was just weird the dialogue was so dumb and ludicrous. Her personality was stupid and idiotic and unbelievable. Just all over no!

I so enjoyed this book its delicious naughty slightly taboo and everything i love in a romance book.

See Cain wants Melody but she is his niece even if its not by blood.

Melody has always had a thing for her uncle but does he realise it after all he barely speaks to her. But everything changes on her birthday.

I received this book in advance for a voluntary honest review. Another great story by Dani Wyatt about a rough mountain man who finds the softness in a woman that completes him. Though he is her uncle, Cain is not a blood relative of Melody Lane who just moved back with her father, Cain’s adopted brother. Lust a first sight hits them both. Will their relationship survive the scrutiny and judgment of others? Cain will do whatever it takes to keep his Melody by his side and under him.

This was some story. I knew one of them boys Cain rushed out of the party was probably going to try something to het back at him. I'm glad everything worked out without anyone dying or getting maimed, because Cain was this close to killing someone for keeping him from Melody.

Lumber Daddy

Oh WOW! I really loved this storyline. The whole story just fits in with the traditional lumberjack persona. It was written very well, and it flowed. That’s not to say it didn’t touch on some hard topics, but it did so in a way that made sense to this story. Loved the dual epilogues. They were just perfect for their HEA.
May 29, 2019 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
A bit taboo but not really. Cain’s priority is work. He hasn’t made time for women because the right one hasn’t come along. Melody is a woman he shouldn’t want until she walks into his life. She’s young and beautiful. She’s also his brother’s niece. Melody has lived somewhat of a sheltered life. But when her life changes, she realizes there is so much more to life especially in the woods. Great, quick, and lots of dirty talking.

Since I was a little girl, I’ve made up stories. I would lay in my bed at night and before I knew what a trope was, I would make up these trope filled stories. Boy sees girl, boys falls for girl, boy saves girl….happily ever after. As I got older, the stories turned steamier and more intricate, but the basics never changed.

Now, my books are still full of romance but the naughty bits are naughtier,
