4.5 stars.

I loved the plot in this story. It’s got twists and moments of shock. The pace is excellent. Vince Girardi is a badass alpha cop with a very twitchy palm. When he meets Doctor Rowan Delaney whilst investigating the murder of her innocent neighbour Alice, he’s drawn to the sophisticated, successful woman, but he still wants to give her a spank.

Plot ticks my box. Romance ticks my box. Characters, especially the kids, tick the box too.

Can’t say I loved the fact that Vince felt the need

Deep Waters is an amazing read. I love how I was kept on my toes throughout the entire read. You have so many questions when it surrounds Rowan and what she is not openly telling the police. Rowan is strong, stubborn, wicked smart and knows how to keep things close to her chest. Vincent is amazing at his job and is a protector like no other. You feel the chemistry and pull between Vince and Rowan. Their banter is amazing at pushing both their limits. I love the dom/sub relationship Vince and Ro ...more

This book kept me engaged. The pacing is fast and the suspense and tension will have you on the edge. I really liked Vincent and found him quite hot and swoony. For me Rowen was just OK. She was strong and savvy but I found her hard to connect with and just off-putting. Overall though, I felt this was a good read. Of my own accord I'm posting a forthright review. ...more

A great read, a suspenseful and dramatic storyline that has a few unexpected surprises. Rowan is a smart, professional and strong-willed woman who is protective of her two young children. She’s been through a lot due to her husband’s involvement with a Mexican cartel. She is scheduled to testify before the Grand Jury within the week when her neighbor is brutally murdered and she may have been the intended victim.

Police LT. Vince Girardi is a dominant male who sees Rowan and is equally immensely

Updated version of Bella Rosa that is still suspenseful and passionate as the original

I have a long term love of Jade Cary stories and jumped at what I thought was a new book by her in several years. I found that Deep Water is an updated version of Bella Rosa, which is the first book that addicted me to her in the first place.
She has done an awesome job of making the book more current, it was written almost 8 years ago and you don’t realize how much has changed in daily life. The cell phone, l

This is Vincent and Rowen’s story. Vince is an alpha police Lieutenant who meets Rowan when he and his partner are investigating the murder of her neighbor, who may have been mistakenly killed when Rowan is the target. Rowan is due to testify before the grand jury shortly and is looking forward to being able to move on with her life with her two children. The chemistry between Vince and Rowan is undeniable, and I loved his interactions with her children. This is a good story which has twists, dr ...more

This was a new to me author.
Unfortunately I struggled with this one.
The plot held promise, but for me the characters majorly let it down.
Every time I seemed to think we were finally getting to the good stuff/ the reason I picked up the book in the first place, one of the main characters would do something ridiculous that would ruin it/draw attention away from it.
If the plot had been given the time to shine this could of been a fantastic book (in my opinion).
I did love the kids though, and mostl

Vince had to protect the wife of a mobster before she testified. Rowan kept her secrets but was drawn to Vince as they spent time together. Rowan was a wonderful mother, doing what she thought was right for her children and herself. Vince tried so hard to not mix business with pleasure, but his heart won out. With danger all around, these two fought to find their way together. I enjoyed this story, though some parts dragged a little, and I would recommend it.

Fast paced thriller. While I really enjoyed Vincent’s character, Rowan drove me crazy. Talk about self sabotaging! She had redeeming qualities in being a wonderful mom and doctor, but I disliked her attitude towards people trying to help her and her kids. I did enjoy the suspense and the rapid pace. This book definitely kept me on my toes. The spice was great, especially if you like a submissive/dominant relationship. All in all, this was sexy and suspenseful, perfect for a fun end of summer rea ...more

My first story from this author. The blurb pulled me in, I was intrigued enough to give it a go. I am so glad I did. The storyline pulled me in and kept me wanting more. I had so many questions. The twists and turns held enough suspense to keep my mind on edge while the banter between Vince and Rowan kept it just light enough. I don't see this being the last I read from this author. If you're looking for something new, give this one a go.

Wow! Talk about a page turner! I couldn’t put it down. The story of Rowan and Vince is intense. Both characters are extremely set in their individual ways, and neither of them have any idea of the danger heading rapidly toward them. When Rowan discovers that her neighbor was murdered in a vicious way, she was extremely nervous. Vince noticed right away. And so begins the tale. Absolutely fantastic! And just enough spice to make it even better.

What a story. The author has crafted a tale of two individuals drawn together by coincidence and lead on a path of twists and turns. The story had some times where the pacing is slow, but overall this is a good story. There were times I wanted to shake both characters for their stubbornness. If you like steamy romance with alpha males, danger and mystery this is a good book for you.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This story was great. Rowan needs protection and Vince is sent to do the job. The chemistry with these two is fantastic. Read this story in one sitting because I kept having to know what would happen next. Vince was also great with Ro’s kids which was great to see. Vince is so protective of her and wants her. She seems to push all his buttons in a good way. Great overall story and read

Deep Water is a gripping read. There were unexpected twists and turns, surprises, suspense, danger, and I loved the attention to detail. I was enthralled from the beginning till the end. I loved the chemistry and banter between Vince and Rowan and I liked how Vince was so protective of Rowan and her children. A good read from beginning to end and one I recommend you read for yourself.

This was my first read from this author and I really enjoyed it. The murder mystery was really intriguing and then the twist with Rowan was something I did not see coming at all. That added a new dimension to the story.

Jade Cary wrote elaborate fantasies in her head from the time she was a small child. The fantasies included strong men and strong, loving relationships. She discovered romance novels quite by accident, once she'd devoured everything by Stephen King and Joseph Wambaugh. Desperate for something new to read, she picked up The Other Side of Midnight by Sidney Sheldon. After that, she found Scruples, b ...more
