Publisher's Summary

Colonial Mining Authority agent Natalia Hallowell doesn't always play by the rules, but she wouldn't compromise a case, either. Put on administrative leave under a cloud of accusation, with no support from her boss, Natalia seeks a little anonymous companionship at her favorite bar. But she's surprised when the woman who catches her fancy starts buying her drinks.

Desperate, Genevieve "Gennie" Caine has no choice but to seduce, drug, and tie Natalia to the bed to get her attention. With the Reyes Corporation after something she has, Gennie needs Natalia to open an investigation and distract them long enough for her to get off Nevarro.

Natalia doesn't trust Gennie - despite the growing attraction between them - but the corporation's suspiciously high profits and abnormal business dealings convince her that they must be hiding something. She has no idea just how deep the deceptions run....

    "Not Great"

    I managed to get to the end of this book with minimal interruptions for lame, uninteresting pages of bad plot and weak prose. Although I have to admit that if it weren't for the lesbian theme there is no way I'd have stuck with it.

    "Deep Deception is a Suprising Good Story!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES! I was surprised at how much I liked the story and the interaction between the two women. And besides being a nice lesbian romance story it's a good science fiction/mystery action thriller that is like a hard roller coaster ride with twist you don't see coming.


    What did you like best about this story?

    First that it wasn't predictable, it had nice twist to it that kept surprising you. Second it was a lovely romance story between a cop done wrong by the system trying to get her life back on track and back to being a cop and a women with a shady past that was trying to make some of the black marks against her go away because not all of them were her doing and she had other now to think off. Even though they are both women you can see how they must depend on one another but how also they both fall for the other one with out ever trusting them fully.


    Which character – as performed by Rachel Green – was your favorite?

    The cop, She was tough but tender, kind of a marshmallow inside. I liked how the story let us into her head and let us know what she was thinking and feeling. The fact she couldn't figure out why her boss was out to get her, just the whole POV from her eyes was nice.


    If you could take any character from Deep Deception out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The Cop and it's because I liked they way her mind worked. Her honor, and her honesty. I would love to go out for pizza and a beer with her and just talk about her world and how it works, why she became a cop. Just everything about the world she lived in and her.


    Any additional comments?

    This surprised me at how good it was and how much fun it was to listen too. They have good deal if you buy the book first the audio. So my advice is to do it that way because it's cheaper and you have both to listen and read.

    "Amazing Story, Awful Narrator"

    At it's heart, this is a romance novel. That said, it is SO much more. There is a solid mystery and real action in this book. The characters are layered and deep. I found myself on the edge of my seat several times throughout this book. On average, I listen to about 1 hr 40 min a day. I finished all 7 hrs and 49 min of this novel in 3 days. I couldn't, as they say, put it down. I can't wait to listen to the other novel in this universe.

    I have only two very small complaints. The first is that there is a tense scene that could easily have had some action. I understand why Pegau didn't go that route here as it could have complicated the plot quite a bit, and she did make up for it with plenty of action later. The second is that a tertiary character suffers a major tragedy and it would have been wonderful to explore that, but it is only used as a emotional bonding point for our heroes. That makes sense, as this is a romance novel, but there's no reason to not have explored that.

    Rachel Green is, in a word, terrible. She's not the worst narrator I've come across, but she's damn close. She sounds like a woman (not a professional voice actor) reading from a text for the first time. Seriously, was there only time for one take? She runs narration into dialogue, has no understanding of cadence and timing, uses the exact same voice for ALL of the characters, and is boring to listen to. She made hot lesbian sex scenes boring to listen to. That's almost an accomplishment in and of itself.

    If you can get past Green's narration (or have no time to read, like myself) this is an awesome story, even if you're not into romance novels. If you have some time to actually read, pick up the print version.

    Story
    "Second listen. Still Stellar."

    The narrator does great in some parts. In others, she sounds bored. I suspect it has more to do with an attempt to indicate "cool" and "nonchalance". Otherwise, though there are a couple "scenes," they aren't too graphic. The story has a good arc, good character development, and, when the narrator wasn't distracting/annoying me, a complete, full story that, despite its length, did not contain errors of contrivance. I hope this author tries again, just with either a matured or altogether different narrator. Side note on narrator: she wasn't horrible. I liked the sound effects as they related to human interaction. I knew when the captain or Garcas or other, nonessential characters were speaking.

    "Great story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Deep Deception to be better than the print version?

    Since I read lesbian fiction extensively and I'd never heard of this author, I was skeptical and wonderfully surprised to find a really good story here. The narrator was flat in places, but not really enough to detract from the story. I would definitely recommend this audiobook.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes

    "Okay but hard to connect with"

    For me it was hard to connect to this story, I listened and half glazed over the first part of it, not really sure what it was about, and it seemed kinda dark, so debated if I would enjoy it at all, in fact I left it on my phone for months until I ran out of other stories then came back to it. I think that it took a while to describe and develop the characters in a why I understood at the start. It was not until a third in that I started to be okay with it and happy to listen on. Its kinda a Sci fi story, detective/romance, but none of these stand out on there own as the main thread. some times that works. But I know from music creation, the best advice they give is to turn up the mix on the track which you want to bring out and all the others down. If you do that your song will always be good. I think here with this novel it suffered from not picking out the main thing it wanted to move forward from the start. It was not until much later in the story that the romance comes out, and I could get behind that part of the novel. I should say the Scifi elements in this are okay and at the right level not dominating the story. Its an okay story. I would check out others my the author but be a bit more careful before purchasing.

    "Good story very badly narrated"

    I liked the story though it was very challenging to listen to the end. from start to finish the flat monotone off the narration was very distracting. There was hardly any changes of inflection in the narrator's voice. The story itself had lots of action and twists and turns though this was not portrayed in the way it was read by the narrator, almost as if she couldn't really be bothered to read it at all. Very disappointing.

    Quite slow to get going but worth holding out for. The characters are well developed and the story feeds the imagination.

    Story
    "Only editing lets it down."

    Forget that this is a Sci-Fi story. That is only the background and is done is such a way that it doesn't become bogged down by too much techno babble, which could have detracted from the overall tale. And the techno babble parts that do take place happen in such a way that it is still easily understood.

    This leaves the basic premise of the story. Nothing surprising, but it is not a bad tale by any means. You find yourself caring for the two women as they work together to find the truth. Admittedly the plot is fairly easy to work out, but the author still keeps you engaged in the story right until the end. That means this is a much better aurthor than some.

    The narrator does a really good job, indeed she one of the better narrators in the lesbian audio genre, I'd like to hear her do more within the lesbian works out there.

    The main let down comes in the form of the engineering editing. Unlike some recordings out there the voice is clear, but the splicing between the editing of the voice is poor and you get odd bouts where the voice is clearer all of a sudden before the splice happens again and it can seem slightly distracting. Mind you, compared to some of the truly awful recordings out there (one sounded like it had been recorded in a barn) I would much rather have this problem. It's not great, but it's certainly not so distracting that I wanted to turn off the story, but that is the reason why I knocked one star off the performance. A shame because it was nothing to do with the narrator herself.
