Deeper by Megan Hart
Get the book:
Instead, Nick became her dirty little secret; a fervent sexual accomplice who knew how to ignite an all-consuming obsession she had no idea she carried deep within her.
Bess had always wondered what happened to Nick after that summer, after their promise to meet again. And now, back at the beach house and taking a break from responsibility, from marriage, from life, she discovers his heartbreaking fate--and why he never came back for her. Suddenly Nick's name is on her lips...his hands on her thighs...dark hair and eyes called back from the swirling gray of purgatory's depths.
For me Deeper is in the same tradition as great love stories such as Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, where no obstacle can hinder their love, imperfect as it may be. This story has stayed with me since I finished reading it, and is not easily forgotten. It is everything that I have come to expect from a Megan Hart novel. If you have read at least one of her books I think you know what I am talking about, and if you have not then you are missing out on one of today’s greatest romance writers. Though her romances do not generally have the “traditional” type of “happily ever after” her love stories (so much more than a romance) offer the hope of love; her endings are authentic and true to her characters.
I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK, and can’t even begin to express my feelings for it. Even though I shed tears of grief for the life Bess and Nick could have shared, it had the perfect ending. Their depth of love was shown in every written word, from Bess’s willingness to sacrifice everything for her love for Nick, to Nick’s final gesture of undying love, and finally to the glimmer of hope for Bess and Eddie. Deeper couldn’t be anything other than what it is… a great love story.
ps. for those of you who read Broken, Joe and Sadie make a very brief appearance and reveal their HEA :)
