DEEP by Jaine Diamond

The more lines they cross, the deeper they get…

Top cadet Lana Marsden lives by the rules. The most important rule of all: no messing around with an officer. She learned that one the hard way.

Now her only desire is to survive the grueling DEEP Training program and leave that scandalous past behind.

When she reports to Station Six amid wild rumors of erotic hazing rituals and sadomasochistic games, she’s not prepared for any of the rumors to be true—or for her insatiable attraction to Sergeant “Catch” Durant, her tattooed rebel of a trainer.

One touch from Catch, and Lana knows she’s in trouble. One night of white-hot ecstasy, and the rules melt away.

Catch knows sweet, sexy Lana is forbidden. She’s his trainee, and her overprotective brother is his best friend. But one taste and Catch knows the last woman he’s supposed to touch will be the one to bring him to his knees. Which is exactly where he wants to be…

A cadet with a secret.
An officer with a secret kink.
A whole lot of rules to be broken.

DEEP is the first full-length novel in the DEEP Series. Contains hot men (and women) in uniform, a violated Code of Conduct, and ice cream. Intended for adult readers, 18+.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
This book captured my attention from the first page to the last – so much so that when I came from work, I left the TV off and just powered up the Kindle.

To me, this book is about finding yourself, finding what you need, and who you need. Lana is searching for herself, a place to belong, for someone to call her own. Lana has always felt as though she's an afterthought – especially within her own family. Joining the ISC has given her a sense of purpose, a sense of belonging.

When she arrives at Station Six, she knows she in for the longest three months of her life, but what she doesn't expect is to find a man that takes her breath away. Annnnd, he's off limits. Not only is he her CO, he's also her brother's best friend.

Catch is on Station Six after being demoted as a pilot. He doesn't necessarily hate being a trainer, nor does he long for the days of being a pilot again. He's not sure what he wants, other than to keep his head above water this quarter. With the ISC brass breathing down their collective necks amid all the rumors of sexual exploits at Station Six, he's determined to keep his focus on his trainees. Until he meets his best friend’s sister.

Circling each other for weeks, Lana and Catch finally begin...something. Neither is quite sure what to call it, but whatever "it" is, it calls to them on a level that neither can ignore.

I loved the way the author brought in elements of all sorts of styles, bondage, spanking, and lots and lots of play. BIG SMILE LOL

I can't wait until book two of this series.

I was surprised by this book, I did not realize it was set in the future and in space. I used to love watching Deep Space Nine, a Star Trek spinoff, and always wondered what it would be like to live in the future. This story takes me there, right into the DEEP.

Lana Marsden is running from her past and right into the DEEP, away from her family and the past she wants to forget. So while she is training with the International Space Corps, she has two rules she will not break: no crossing the line with officers and no bondage. So when she is assigned to Station Six for her final training before her assignment, the rumors are more than she wants to hear. Station Six is where her brother, Adam, aka First, is stationed and she can’t wait to see him. She will do what she needs to do to get what she wants and has trained for.

Tristan “Catch” Durant is a trainer on Station Six and First’s best friend. And with First asking him to keep an eye on Lana since she is going to be in his unit, Catch never thinks what that will mean in the end. He has a past that has him putting walls up to keep himself from getting hurt.
Can Lana and Catch follow the rules and not give in to the attraction they feel for each other? Will Catch show her special treatment because she is the only girl in his unit? Can Lana push herself to get what she wants and where she wants to be stationed in the end?

This is a first for me from Jaine Diamond and I loved it and can’t wait for more. I need to know what happens between Lana and Catch. And what is going to happen with First and Scarlet?
