“Deep Under” Walker Security #1, Tall, Dark, and Deadly #4 is by author Lisa Rene Jones.
My Rating: 4
Deep Under is book one in the Walker Security series. This novel is also interconnected with the Tall, Dark, and Deadly series. It is a crossover novel. I have not yet read any of the other books. That said, this book is a standalone. And although I did have some curiosity regarding relationships with the secondary characters, I was easily able to follow along with no problems.
Kyle and Myla…..
The book opens with a prologue going back 14 months. It is here we infer that Myla will be abducted by a powerful cartel boss. But we don’t get any details until Myla has flashbacks throughout the following chapters.
Myla has been the ‘kept’ woman of one of the FBI’s most dangerous and elusive criminals. She has had to close her mind off to her true emotions in order to survive the horror of Michael Alvarez; a despicable excuse for a human being. After 14 months with Michael, Myla gains a tiny bit of trust from him. Of course that bit of trust is questionable. Non existent actually. Michael trusts no one. Even so, Myla is finally allowed a little bit of freedom; not really. That is of course as long as her new bodyguard stays close. But not too close.
Kyle is a member of the Walker Security team. An elite team of former military and FBI. Since Myla was kidnapped, Kyle could think of nothing but finding her. He never actually met Myla but he feels a strong connection. When Kyle goes undercover, taking the role of a bodyguard, he is not a little shocked to learn that it’s Myla he his guarding. Kyle is thrilled but cautious. He knows what could happen to both of them if his cover is blown.
It’s not easy for Myla to trust her new bodyguard; even if he does make her feel safe. And for very real reasons, Kyle must tread carefully albeit slowly before revealing himself. There are a whole lot of complications is this book.
There is a lot of suspense and angst. Just waiting for the ‘proverbial’ shoe to drop made for many tense moments. Since this is a romantic suspense, I won’t give away and spoilers. I will say for all the angst and worry, the climax was a bit rushed; but no less satisfying.
I really liked this book and definitely plan to read book two in the Walker Security series which is Asher’s story.
