I did a bad thing.
I did a really bad thing.
I’m not a bad person, I swear. I just made a few mistakes.
Mistake number one was agreeing to rent my hotel out to an insufferable a**hole, named Aden Smith.
Mistake number two was ignoring his threats to sue me when he handed over a list of items he deemed “unacceptable”.
Mistake number three was diving into the pool to save his life when he fell. It would have been less complicated to hide his body.
When the hospital refuses to let me know how he is, without permission from his immediate family, I panic.
Claiming to be his wife might be my biggest mistake yet—especially when he believes me!
He might have been the one drowning, but I’m sinking in a bed of lies and going down fast—and there’s not a rescue in sight.
Complete Standalone FULL LENGTH NOVEL Pages listed will not be representative of the final product. Happy Ending, Laugh Out Loud Comedy and an Alpha Hero with his eyes only on one woman all contained inside.
MY RATING: 4/5 STARS
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
In Too Deep follows the troupe of enemies to lovers romance so if you’re not down for a hero who is a major a** to the heroine then this book isn’t for you. Seriously, I don’t know what has gotten into authors nowadays but they’re making the heroes really hard to accept, like, and ultimately forgive for the behaviour they pull in the story. It’s revolting at times so that’s why there’s a big star knocked off in this book.
I’m adding more stars because this is been the first book in a long time where it actually made me laugh. And it’s not laugh out loud all the time so don’t come back to me with pitchforks when you’re not laughing from page one. It’s just a chapter in this story that made me laugh. A lot. And I applaud Jordan Marie for it.
Okay, let’s talk more about this book. It’s basically about a burnt out movie star who really needs a break. Aden feels himself losing it so he decides to abandon his movie and breach mega contracts so that he can just chill in this small town where there’s only one motel and one diner that just so happens to be closed for renovations. The motel owner is Hope and after suffering some setbacks in her romantic life, she has a toddler that loves to call Aden his daddy and a motel she inherited but has no idea or funds to run.
After a minor accident, Aden loses his memory. Feared that she would be sued for the accident, Hope makes Aden believes that they’ve been married. Together they work together to patch up their “relationship” and to help make the motel available for the residents of this small town. Soon things become serious and they slowly fall in love with each other.
Until obviously when the sh*t hits the fan and ADEN IS ABSOLUTELY FURIOUS. He has every right to be. He’s been played emotionally and mentally and deceived. He probably doesn’t even know if his feelings towards Hope were or not. Scratch that. He knows the feelings are real and he’s scared mindless over it. Anyways, the big reveal and having Hope apologize and try to win Aden back was touching. It was tiring though. Jordan Marie seemed to have dragged the scene a little too long and made me lose interest. And when Aden came running back, I was kind of taken aback because he was still an a*ss but a sweet one.
If you’re curious about this one, just jump into it like how Aden jumped into the pool. You might enjoy it.
