REVIEW : Down Too Deep by J. Daniels


Following the sudden death of his wife, Nathan Bell has spent nearly two years burying himself in work and neglecting his biggest responsibility: his daughter. Overcome with guilt, he wants to connect with little Marley, but he doesn’t know how to do it alone. And then Jenna Savage throws him a lifeline.

A single mom of twins, Jenna is more than capable of taking care of Nate’s adorable two-year-old, and wants to help Nathan however she can. Soon, attachments are made, forcing Jenna and her kids into new territory. And the closer everyone becomes, the more right it feels.

Falling in love forces Nathan to face his biggest fear, and when hearts, both big and little, are on the line, the only thing scarier than needing someone is losing them all.

Jenna was a bombshell. And that was fully clothed. In a bathing suit, she was sin personified.


I don’t even know where to begin with this review. Down Too Deep is hands down one of the best single parent romances I have EVER read. Nate, Jenna, Marley, Olivia and Oliver will completely steal your heart and have you falling in love with them from the very start.

Nate is a widow and after the loss of his wife he shut down, his sweet baby girl spent more time with his parents. That is until they tell him to man up and take care of his daughter. Nate was clueless when it came to Marley. He didn’t know what to do, what she liked or how to take care of her. Enter Jenna. She instantly fell in love with the sweet little girl and offered to take care of her for Nate. She also helped him learn what his daughter liked, how to soothe her, and her schedule.

Let’s talk about the kids for a moment. Olivia and Oliver, Jenna’s twins, and Marley instantly stole the story and my heart. I loved the bond the three of the formed instantly. They were all truly like siblings from the start and there was so much love between them. I couldn’t get enough of them all.

Back to Nate and Jenna. I loved these two so much. They are both single parents and trying to do what is best for their children and to give them the best lives they possibly could. There was always a level of attraction and chemistry between them and when they finally gave into it I felt like my heart was going to burst.

This book is truly beautiful. Not just the story itself, but the writing. I couldn’t put this book down and read it in one sitting because I was so in love with the characters and the story.

This is the fourth book in a series, however, it can be read as a complete standalone. If single parents are your thing then trust me, this is one book you MUST READ. It’s worth an infinite number of stars.
