Book Review: DEEP DOWN by Elle Aycart

Genre: New Adult Contemporary
Publication Date: February 11, 2014


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?



I LOVED this book!! This romance had it all: outstanding humor, steamy passion, an intense love, and a super engaging story line.❤️

This is a second chance story about a dreamy alpha male and a talented dancer. Kyra and Mike's love story goes back many years ago when at a very young age in the town of Alden they found each other. For them it was instant love and they immediately knew they belonged together. However, their happiness was cut short when misunderstandings, Kyra's dreams, and Mike's plans all collided together and broke them apart for seven years. It's now after those years that they meet again yet everything has changed but their feelings for each other. But can they heal their broken hearts and rescue their longing love?

I found myself a new amazing book boyfriend! Mike was just wow. Talk about a perfect alpha hero: gorgeous, sexy, funny, confident, dominant, skilled, devoted, and with the biggest heart. The passion and desire this man showed was mind blowing. I had to keep fanning myself from the exquisite steam coming out of this book! I loved Mike for creating such hot and wonderful moments but I loved him even more when he was in touch with his emotions. There's something so beautiful and touching about a tough man feeling vulnerable and lost without his love. That was Mike and for all the things that went wrong in his life my heart hurt for him. Yet, the amazing thing about this story is that Mike gets his well deserved second chance at love and this time he takes complete advantage of it.

Now, Kyra is a very talented dancer with big aspirations. Her love for dancing gave her the courage to want to achieve more for herself but it was that passion that gave her life a total eighty degree turn. I did sympathize with Kyra as she goes through very tough situations but some times she annoyed me with the choices she made. I wanted her to finally wake up, see things clearly, and take definite decisions. Thankfully, she learns some good lessons and makes me happy at the end. She was a sweet and goodhearted heroine but it was just her stubbornness that got her into troubles. So I couldn't help it, I was on Mike's team throughout the whole story. ;)

Regardless of the turmoil between them, both Kyra and Mike truly belonged together. Their connection sizzled and their love sparkled so during their ups and downs I was anxious but totally hooked. The story unfolded slowly revealing their pasts in between their present and giving plenty of time to enjoy all the awesome components of the story: the passion, humor, banters, fights, and other incredible characters. Moreover, this story had action built in that brought great suspense which I loved and made the story even more intense.

Again, I absolutely loved this book, it's one of my favorite reads now, and a total must read for me. You'll fall in love with Mike and this imperfect story about love conquering the past, present, and future.♥
