Publisher's Summary

Enter a decadent sensual world where gorgeous alpha males are committed to fulfilling a woman's every desire.

Olivier isn't sure what he's gotten himself into when he joins the Honey Club, only that a dark part of him hungers for the lifestyle offered by this exclusive club. Here, no boundary will be left untested...and one's deepest fantasies will become an exquisite reality.

When Amélie invites Olivier to surrender, she gives the alpha submissive what he craves. Soon they both find themselves falling harder than they ever anticipated - but as their connection deepens, the truth about Olivier's past could destroy everything.

Gripping and seductive, The Deep End is the first book in a sensational new series from best-selling author Kristen Ashley.

I never thought...

So, KA is ALWAYS an automatic DL. Always. But this one just wasn't for me. I made it through about two hours. I don't know. Just bored. Nothing happened in all that time and I just had to turn it off. 😒

Not my thing

I figured this wasn't going to be a good fit for me with the whole Alpha/sub thing but KA is my favorite author so I wanted to give it a try; *deep sigh NOPE, I should've just skip this one. It was all me; nothing to do with KA I'm glad that she's stepping out and doing something she's always wanted to do BUTTT I like my alpha man a certain way and that's just not it! I don't have an issue with BDSM I just go out of my way to avoid m/m or any type of arse play with a man's arse its just not what I'm in to. I didn't even finish it sad but true 😢because I've read her entire catalog. I read a lot of reviews and others love it so kuddos to KA and much success I'll just skip this series and wait on her next series.

The deep end

Really ! Can you spell REFUND. Really really bad. Nararator reads like English is her third language and she is in a hurry to complete the course!!!

OH SO MUCH NAUGHTY DELICIOUSNESS!

Wow, wow, wow!!! I loved this book! KA really hit a homer with the Deep End. Great narration, very well written, and so descriptive I felt myself blush more than once before it was all over. If you're not ok with a little kink, this isn't the story for you, but if you can get down with some dark and kinky romance, you'd better get this book today! Every word of this book will have your naughty bits in a twist. It is a whole other level of sexiness KA is bringing to the table, and I am all about it. Definitely credit worthy and highly recommended.

Book returned

If you’re into BDSM, this book is for you. Personally, it was not enjoyable and hard to listen to. K.A. Is one of my favorite Authors, but I’m not a fan of this book.

Not worth reading

What disappointed you about The Deep End?

Not enough of a storyline. All about the sex.

What could Kristen Ashley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Include an interesting story.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lizbeth Gwynn?

Anyone!

What character would you cut from The Deep End?

n/a

Any additional comments?

I will not waste money on another book in this series.

I'm a KA fan, but...

This one didn't quite do it for me. way too much sex and not enough story. I would have enjoyed deeper character development. I made it to the end, but contemplated not listening. In the end I realize, too I much prefer a dominant guy!

I loved it

I was really nervous about starting this book, I didn't think it would hold my interest. But I was wrong, this book is everything you come to expect from a Kristen Ashley book....and then some. It had an interesting storyline, characters you can't help but fall in love with...and a couple that will drive you crazy. I laughed a lot through this book, Olivier was hilarious and incredibly alpha, which I wasn't expecting. Amelie was sassy. They both weren't afraid to show their vulnerable side and work through their issues. I think they are a perfect match. It's a sweet, sexy story that will leave you wanting more. I am so excited for the next book in the series.

Lizbeth Gwynn's narration was fantastic, I'm sure this is the first narration of hers I've listened too and I'm hooked. She brought the characters to life and made the reader feel apart of the story.

Love Kristen Ashley's books. And the subject matter didn't bother me. BUT...

.....it seems I'm not into male submisives. Although I will listen to the second book. Because again, I like Kristen Ashley

Unfortunately there is absolutely no story

I love Kristen Ashley’s books as she is a marvelous storyteller. Unfortunately this book is a complete miss as there is a 5 minute storyline that is ridiculously predictable, and almost feels like an after thought. The rest of the book is just hard core sex - which certainly doesn’t need to be 98% of the book.

The Deep End review

I have read many of Kristen Ashley’s book but this book took her skill as an author to the next level. The way she writes so of the scenes in this book are fantastic. Even book I read by Kristen just makes me love reading more and more. I would recommend this book to reader that love a steamy story line that keeps you wanting more.

This was a bore.

Kristen Ashley has written many great books. Unfortunately, this isn't one of them.
It was as if she wrote 20 explicit BDSM scenes then squeezed a story around them.

Bdsm galore!

In true KA style, the story line is easy to follow. Admittably, the start is a little confusing as you get used to the narrator impersonating a French woman and some of the names are unusual but it doesn't take long to get to the good stuff. I've never been much into bondage but this has shined a new light onto the subject. There is the usual drama but it comes unexpectedly in this book. The love scenes are explicit but if you don't mind, you'll get used to it. Will reread
