It’s definitely well overdue since my last J. Daniels reads and from this series! Down Too Deep was a great point to jump back into this series again. I still need to read Bad For You in the Dirty Deeds series, but they’re all standalone reads, so I was OK.
Man, what an emotional read this one turned out to be. Even after reading the synopsis, it didn’t prepare me for anything that was to come. In this one, we have two single parents, I don’t normally gravitate towards this trope, but I’ve read a few great ones this year.
My heart quickly broke for Nate, it was tough to see how much he was grieving over the death of his wife. And trying to balance being a father to the sweetest baby, Marley. Everything was becoming too much for him, but Jenna swooped in at the exact right moment.
I loved how selfless Jenna was, when it came to Nate and Marley. There’s definitely something instant between, a connection that only so many people can have.
J. Daniels truly did a phenomenal job writing their kids into the story, they were such a pivotal part and really made this read wholesome. I loved the budding friendship that began to form between Nate and Jenna. And eventually turning into something so much more.
Have your tissues ready, everyone! You’ll definitely need it with this amazing read!
