Myla is beautiful, a dove with clipped wings, captive by the wolf, a vicious drug lord. One look into her eyes and Kyle could see the pain, the fear...the desperation. Or so it seems. He's been fooled before by a woman and it cost him everything and everyone he loved. He won't be fooled again.

I’m developing this love/hate relationship with Lisa Renee Jones. I fell in love with one of her series and had high expectations ever since. What I hate is how every series I have read since I have felt very middle of the road about them. They start out great and then a few books in I’m feeling just meh. This is exactly how I felt with Deep Under.
Myla has been captive to drug lord Alvarez. Well, actually she’s been in a ‘relationship’ with said drug lord because he has threatened her sister’s life and he captures women and forces them to be sex slaves. To save herself and protect her sister, plus trying to find a way to help the captured women, is the reason why she’s with him. Kyle workers for the Walker brothers and has never believed Myla was dead. On the chance Myla may be in the cartel, Kyle agrees to go undercover, playing bodyguard hoping to find word about Myla never expecting the person he’s protecting is Myla. Now he has to determine if she’s there be choice or by force before he can return her to her family.
Hmmm…what can I say. Deep Under worked and didn’t work for me. I liked Kyle and Myla. She’s a fairly tough cookie having survived in the situation that she’s in. Kyle is persistent looking for Myla and keeping hope alive. Most of their interactions I enjoyed, and of course the sex scenes were steamy. My problem is the flow of it all. The story dragged while the relationship happened too quickly. I get Kyle’s side to it. He’s been obsessing about her ever since he saw the footage. Where everybody else thought she was dead, he felt she was alive. So really I understand his point of view but Myla has been doing what she can to survive in this brutal world she’s forced into and yet she throws all caution to the wind and WHAM, they’re an item? That I have a hard time believing.
Fans of LRJ will more than likely enjoy this book. It ties in with several of the author’s other series, which at times was a bit confusing. There are references to things that have happened that, if you haven’t read the other series, may not make sense. I’ve been reading Careless Whispers so I know who Ella is, but readers who haven’t may not get the importance. Still, Deep Under works fine as a stand-alone. However, if you want to read it as part of a series you can enjoy it either as book #1 in the Walker Security series or as book #4 in the Tall, Dark and Deadly series.
