After weeks on a sold-out tour, singer Cady Ward is coming home for the holidays. But after one too many episodes of fan-craziness, Cady’s manager decides that she needs protection—in the form of muscled cop Conn McCormick. Longing for peace and quiet to prepare before her next album drops, Cady doesn’t need a bodyguard just to deal with some vague email threats…though she can’t deny that close proximity to Conn’s body is a very nice place to be.
Conn is in the midst of a career scandal when his boss assigns him to pop-star guard duty. It’s a poor use of his skills, even though Cady’s feisty nature proves the perfect distraction for Conn while Internal Affairs investigates his case. What begins as a sizzling attraction becomes something deeper than either Conn or Cady could have expected. But when Conn uncovers the sinister plan behind the threats to Cady, he’s faced with a professional dilemma: To save her life, will he risk having a future with the only woman who’s ever touched his soul?
Going Deep by Anne Calhoun
Cady, aka Maud, is a singing superstar returning home for the holidays. The one thing she loves about returning home was returning to a “normal” life and seeing her mom and sister. Due to resent threats, her manager insists that she hire a body guard, changing the dynamics of homing and upsetting her creative flow.
Conn is an officer that is assigned to Cady’s protection and instantly there is chemistry between the characters.
While Conn is protecting Cady, he is also under investigation for beating a criminal in lock up.
Both Cady and Conn are facing mysteries that they must uncover to bring them peace of mind and safety.
This story is touted as a romantic suspense but I felt it was more mystery because there wasn’t a lot of action. The romance was predictable and the story contained a lot of dialog that didn’t seem to pertain to the plot.
Overall, the story had an easy flow with writing that has a way of describing you into the scenes.
I received this ARC copy of Going Deep from St. Martin's Press in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication November 1, 2016.
