Deeper | [Megan Hart]

Deeper

Twenty years ago she had her whole life spread out before her. She was Bess Walsh, a fresh-scrubbed, middle-class student ready to conquer the design world. And she was taken. Absolutely and completely. But not by Andy, her well-groomed, intellectual boyfriend who had hinted more than once about a ring. No. During that hot summer as a waitress and living on the beach, she met Nick, the moody, dark-haired, local bad boy. He was, to put it mildly, not someone she could take home to Daddy.

Publisher's Summary

Twenty years ago, she had her whole life spread out before her. She was Bess Walsh, a fresh-scrubbed, middle-class student ready to conquer the design world. And she was taken. Absolutely and completely. But not by Andy, her well-groomed, intellectual boyfriend who had hinted more than once about a ring. No. During that hot summer as a waitress and living on the beach, she met Nick, the moody, dark-haired, local bad boy. He was, to put it mildly, not someone she could take home to Daddy. 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. Dead, alive, or something in between, they can't stop their hunger. She wouldn't dare.

    "Terrible Summary"

    Fabulous romance with an interesting twist but don't count on the publisher's summary to make a decision to buy. The glaring errors in the publisher's summary make me think that the publisher never read the book. The plot is terrific but the summary is really off the mark. Bess is majoring in counseling not fashion design. She is not a waitress but the manager of a sweets store in a tourist town. She is dating a "towny", Nick, but there was no indication that her family would not approve of him but would be surprized and question her because they knew her longtime boyfriend,Andy. Nick had had a terrible childhood and wasn't going to college and seemed like a misdirected but nice guy underneath. Beth didn't want to explain herself because she wasn't confident of her relationship with Nick and "it was none of their business". Andy is a philandering cad not an intellectual but he did have plenty of money. There was not much to chose between to two young men except that Andy was a cheating liar and Nick wasn't directed but meant well and both of the men manipulated Bess. The young Bess made some bad choices and as a result had to make some very difficult decisions later in her life. The plot centers on information gathering and decision making process with sex and relationships both past and present thwown into the mix.

    "Best summer read so far!"

    This is probably one of the best stories I have listened to in a long time. When I first started listening I was not sure how I would like the flash backs to then/now but once I got into the story I could not stop listening. As stated in the earlier review, the summary is very misleading and not at all what the book is about. Nick is not a "bad boy" and no one in Bess' family ever disapproved of him because they never met him. Bess did not have him over because she did not want to explain why she was seeing Nick when she was supposed to have a boyfriend, Andy, back at home. In addition, her parents were not even at the summer house just a parade of different relatives each week. Bess was not a waitress she was the manager of an ice cream shop. This was a great summer romance with a twist of something different. Definitely worth a credit or your money. Narrator was excellent too!

    "Couldn't Get Enough"

    I can hardly express how much I loved this telling. Every aspect moved me, emotionally, mentally, and sexually. I couldn't wait to hear how the story unfolded. It was the perfect mix of romance, sex, and drama. Others should take note of how it's done. Erotica doesn't mean that all of your mental and emotional synapses and wants have to be ignored or set aside for a romp in the hay. Hart shows how to mix everything that makes romance and great, raw sex so yummy with characters who are real and have depth.

    "Another GREAT one!"

    Megan Hart is an amazing story teller, never failing to make you believe even the paranormal is reality. Her characters are so vividly burned into your head and heart you find yourself totally caught up in each one. I love the way she weaves characters from other books so very subtly into this one. Read "Deeper" as the 5th installment after first reading in this order 1.Dirty, 2.Broken, 3.Stranger, 4.Tempted.
    Hart's deep psychological analysis of her characters makes for an intellectual read as well as an enjoyable sexually exciting experience. Can't wait for her next book. Smart and sexy books are rare but these meet all the criteria. If you do not like explicit language, then you could not enjoy the intelligence of her writings. The erotic descriptions are only second to the psychologically smart way she takes her characters apart, piece by piece allowing them to become almost real in your mind's eye.

    "WOW"

    This book was NOT AT ALL what I expected.

    So much heartbreak. I finished it yesterday and my stomach is still all tied up in knots.

    About the narrator, I've said it before and will say it each time I listen to her...Absolutely fantastic. The best I've ever heard. No one else brings a story alive like Savannah Richards.

    Now I'm off to find other titles that she reads.

    "GOOD STORY"

    LOVE THE CHARACTORS, AND THE NARRATOR. THE STORY WAS GREAT AND KIND OF SAD WHEN YOU FIGURE OUT WHAT HAPPENS. BUT I HAVE LISTENED TO IT SEVERAL TIMES AND STILL ENJOY.

    "Best Megan Hart book so far"

    I have enjoyed every Megan Hart book I have read but this one hands down was my favorite. It can be labled as a paranormal romance as well. I loved the development of the story transitioning from past to present. I wish the ending would have found the miracle I was looking for in the book but what is a romance without loss.

    Listen mostly to urban fantasy and suspense/thrillers but also enjoy mysteries, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, adventure, classic, modern, spiritual or general literature. And I always like a bit of romance in any of my stories.

    "Disappointed"

    I'm a fan of Megan Hart and was looking forward to listening to this book, especially after reading so many glowing reviews. Unfortunately I was greatly disappointed. The premise had a lot of promise and the method of telling the story in both the past and present made it even more interesting. But I kept waiting to find out why she was so taken by Nick who seemed childish and selfish and spent 20 years with a man who seemed to treat her badly even before they were married. Despite waiting for the entire book I never saw the redeeming side of either of these men. I'm left to believe their "good" side was always "offstage" or the great quantities of sex was the extent of their attraction. Usually Ms Hart creates well rounded believable characters but this time I simply couldn't believe this woman who seemed to be an intelligent, rational person would put up with being treated with contempt by both of them yet still claim to love the one and stay with the other for 20 years. Savannah Richards did a good job of narration, yet I couldn't help but wonder at times if she was emphasizing the hurtful way they spoke to each other when at times it should have been more neutral thus reinforcing my dislike for all of the characters. In the end I simply didn't care about any of them. If this had been my first Megan Hart book it would probably have been my last. As it is I'm still a fan because I know most of her books are much better written. So now I'm looking forward to listening to the next one.
