Book Review: "Deep" by Kylie Scott
This one is told from the perspective of Lizzy, Anne's (Mrs. Mal Ericson) younger sister. Lizzy was first introduced in the second book, obviously being that one explored Anne & Mal's romance. And we could see that she had a bit of an insta-crush on Ben, the bass player for the band. Ben is the super tall, super good looking, and super laid back guy with a beard. It seems that on the night of Anne & Mal's Vegas wedding, Lizzy and Ben hooked up, and now she's pregnant. This book goes through the highs and lows of these two figuring out how to best handle this surprising and unexpected news all while the band leaves for their huge tour.
Now that I've read all four books (and the first in the new Dive Bar series), I can see some similarities in the writing. But this one seemed to show the author's true Aussie speech and dialogue in the writing, at least more so here than in the other books. Also this one didn't have a prolonged physical separation between the two love birds right before the big finale. So that was different. But I don't want to sound all down on this, because these were just things I noticed and didn't detract from my enjoyment at all. I really liked how Lizzy made up her mind and stuck to it, defending herself to all who questioned her. Ben definitely got blindsided, especially when you hear his side of things, but he still doesn't handle everything well. It is a trying time for them both, but it ended the way it should have, of course.
I think I've found myself a new genre to read more often... but I'm not sure I would read a whole series at once again!
