Review: Deeper by Blue Ashcroft

“There’s really something to be said for being alive. Being wholly alive, and allowing yourself to be human and imperfect and lovable. It’s what makes life worthwhile. That sacrifice we make when we love someone. That risk we take when we give our hearts to someone mortal, knowing in the end, we have to lose them.” I’m not exactly sure what drew me to Deeper in the first place. It may have been the fact that I’ve been on a NA Contemporary Romance kick for the last 6 months or so! Deeper was an emotional story. It was intriguing, with a strong female lead and an interesting premise. Deeper follows Rain Wilson, who is still dealing with the aftermath of the death of her boyfriend during a water park accident.

I revolved around Kira, a gamer who was part of a gaming team with three boys: Alex, Ollie, and Ethan, who leaves them for her boyfriend at the time. However, things turn out not to go well with Kira and her boyfriend and now he’s after her so she turns to her gamer friends for help.

It mainly revolved around the romance aspect of it: Kira trying to get Alex to let her in. There was also the suspense part of it with Kira’s ex-boyfriend hunting her which kept me on edge throughout the entire novel. There was also a  splash of mystery as we tried to figure out what happened to Alex that changed his personality so much. The facing was just right: it was a happy medium of not too much and […]
