Title:  Down Deep

Series:  Going Deep Book #1

Author:  Virna DePaul

Genre:  Romance, Contemporary, Sports Romance

Blurb:   He’s here to score and he always wins.

Heath Dawson: football star, gorgeous man candy, and panty-dropper extraordinaire. He was also Camille Pollert’s first crush. But then he humiliated her at a high school football game, and while she got her revenge, she also closed off her heart.

Ten years later, Camille is a football photographer and single mother, and her old crush returns with a vengeance when she sees Heath again. He’s just as handsome, but now he’s a man. A man she can no longer resist.

Heath hardly recognizes the skinny girl he knew in high school, but he can’t deny the attraction he feels for the curvaceous and beautiful woman Camille has become. He wants her, and he always gets what he wants.

Just as the two of them start to realize they might be perfect for one another, reality rears its ugly head. Can Heath and Camille score a touchdown for their love? Or will they fumble the play and be parted once again?


“This isn’t a game to me.  But whatever it is, I’m gonna win it, just the same.  And so are you.”

If you’re looking for an amazing sports themed romance, then look no further!  If you are a fan of Jaci Burton or Toni Aleo then Deep Down is absolutely perfect for you!

I always enjoy a well done sports-themed romance – and this had a little bit of that ‘old teenage crush who the main heroine never really got over’ mixed in, which just added to the appeal.  The sparks between the two was obvious and well written and I loved the sexy, witty banter.  I hadn’t read anything by this author before, but I was definitely pleasantly surprised and speed through this book fairly quickly because I just couldn’t put it down.  I’m also a sucker for a really well done HEA, and this fit the bill.

All in all, you can’t go wrong with this one!
