Mike Haddican is a proud small-town gym owner, a renowned karate instructor, and all-around good guy. He’s never needed much to be happy: his family, his friends, his girl. Especially his girl. But when Kyra left him seven years ago to chase her dreams, she all but destroyed him.
Contemporary dancer Kyra Brims made it big, but it cost her dearly. With her life and career in shambles, she doesn’t need a do-over, she needs a friggin’ miracle. Injured, broke, and out of options after going through hell, she’s come back to Alden, the town she swore she’d never return to and home of Mike Haddican, the man who ripped her soul to pieces, to lick her wounds and recover.
Forgetting and letting go proved impossible when they were worlds apart; now that they’re stuck together they don’t stand a chance, especially with Mike’s grandma and her partners in crime plotting, meddling and refusing to give up on them.
As the passion that never died burns out of control, so do old hurts and unresolved issues. Both have reasons to be angry and feel betrayed, but now that they’re older, are they wise enough to make things work?
Elle Aycart is a favorite author of mine and her Bowen Brothers books are 1-click purchases for me. Deep Down is the first book in a new series, and again establishes Ms. Aycart as one of the queens of dirty-talking Alpha males!
Mike and Kyra were in love years before, but she wanted to leave their small town of Alden and follow her dream of becoming a professional dancer. Time passes and Kyra returns with her young daughter, divorced and broke. Mike is initially filled with anger at her for leaving him but their SIZZLING hot attraction soon becomes too strong for either of them to ignore. For the first part of the book, they are both too angry at each other to let their passionate relationship become any more than just sex.
Past misunderstandings are gradually cleared up and Mike and Kyra become more open to each other. But make no mistake, this book should be read and enjoyed for the completely dirty and smutty scenes and the dirty-talking Mike. There is some drama initially between Mike and Kyra, but their sex scenes together make this book a stand-out. Elle Aycart is in her own category in writing a pierced, tattooed, Alpha and Mike fits the bill to a “tee”! There is some humor here with the group of grandmas but for me, it was Mike who stole the show. He is hot, loving, protective and PIERCED. All in all, Deep Down is an absolutely enjoyable, super-hot and dirty book from the talented Elle Aycart.

After a colorful array of jobs all over Europe ranging from translator to chocolatier to travel agent to sushi chef to flight dispatcher, Elle Aycart is certain of one thing and one thing only: aside from writing romances, she has abso-frigging-lutely no clue what she wants to do when she grows up. Not that it stops her from trying all sorts of crazy stuff. While she is probably now thinking of a new profession, her head never stops churning new plots for her romances. She lives currently in Barcelona, Spain, with her husband and two daughters, although who knows, in no time she could be living at the Arctic Circle in Finland, breeding reindeer.
