eARC Book review: Devil and the Deep (Deep Six #2) by Julie Ann Walker
Available July 5th 2016
eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley
Cocktail parties, political fundraisers, and charity events are Maddy Powers' way of life. But the daring man who appropriated her father's yacht a couple of months ago is still out there, somewhere, and she wants to pay him back for the scorching kiss they shared.
Behind his suave smile and ladykiller eyes, Bran Palladino carries a dark secret that keeps him from pursuing Maddy… even though he can't get her out of his head. But when Maddy is kidnapped as part of a grand scheme, it's time to put up or shut up… because Bran can't live without Maddy now.
Book 2 in the Deep Six series that follows a group of former seals picks up a little after book one. If you didn't read book one though i don't see where you would have a problems following along in this book just fine. Bran and Maddy have been keeping in touch via email and text and the man is obsessed. When Maddy invites him to stop by for a visit with her on a neighboring island though he balks. The guys get him to go and just in time as Maddy is suddenly again the object of a kidnapping. Things get crazy from there. Not only is Maddy under attack but she had 3 teenage girls with her and when Bran arrives on the scene he's got Mason and Alex with him too. There is a bit of secondary story being told about Mason and Alex in this book which is hopefully set up for the next book in the series. I really enjoyed Bran and Maddy but Mason and Alex stole away several great scenes. The banter between the characters was fun at times and the suspense was crazy good. There were a few ho hum spots in the book but over all this one was a winner for me. I'm looking forward to seeing Mason and Alex go at it in future books. Bring on those seals!
