Review

Beneath the Surface is a gripping, emotional tale. Full of twists and turns, page turning suspense and heart breaking drama.~Sizzling Hot Book Reviews

Fields' writing is muy caliente -- each page generates enough heat to melt candles. Lush details, an invigorating mystery and richly etched characters make this a keeper. It simply glows with the delicious intrigue Fields unravels. Readers will fall in love.~RT Book Reviews

Joya Fields is a new author to me, and I can say after reading this story that I will be on the look out for other works by her. This was a great mystery/suspense story and a great happily ever after. Pick up a copy today of BENEATH THE SURFACE; you will not regret it.~The Romance Reviews

Earthquake survivor and underwater archaeologist Brooke Richards remains fiercely independent, despite her missing leg. When she visits Florida to get fitted with a state-of-the-art prosthesis and to visit her best friend, she witnesses her friend's boat explode into flame--and becomes involved in the investigation into its suspicious cause.

Police officer Garrett Ciavello believes the blast was intentionally set, and that the killer may be targeting Brooke as well. Despite his misgivings, he accepts Brooke's offer to aid his criminal investigation. As they work side by side, Brooke and Garrett are powerfully attracted to one another. Attraction kindles into hot steamy love, even as Brooke's life is threatened repeatedly.

Author Joya Fields crafts an engaging, suspenseful tale with twists and turns that will keep you guessing. Despite their many differences, Brooke and Garrett make a dynamic and compelling couple--each sexy and personable, yet with their own very real internal struggles. Their attraction is so hot, your e-reader will scorch your fingers! As their passion grows, Brooke's desire for independence and Garrett's deep-seated need to protect her lead to clashes and conflicts that make you wonder if their love will survive--that is, if they can find the killer before he finds them!

I was pulled into the world of this story immediately, and couldn't put it down! I highly recommend Beneath the Surface!

I loved the book. I saw the release blurb on TWRP Loop, it caught my eye, and I had to read it last night.

Me. Fields delivered on all accounts. Love, Sensual moments, Emotions, and Suspense! What I like best was the Tension with out angst between Brooke & Garrett. He so want to protect her from danger, but also saw she needed to be involved which put a target on her. Brooke's growth and changes were so well done. I never had the moment where I wanted to strangle either the H/h that is so common in suspenseful romances.

Make sure you have time to read when you start as I could not put it down until I was done.

Garrett needs to protect; Brooke needs to be independent. When missing family members, a mystery box at the bottom of the ocean, and multiple murder attempts bring them together, their immediate attraction and sizzling chemistry demands that they find a compromise. Likeable characters, mystery and suspense, and an all around fun read...oh, and it made me incredibly hungry for pizza! Recommend!

Format: Paperback
REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received a review copy of this book from the author.

When I first saw the cover of this novel, I just had to investigate. That gorgeous blue color, the couple about to kiss, the solitary diver so strategically placed -- the entire cover design was incredible eye candy! The synopsis definitely intrigued me, and, when I started reading, I was instantly hooked!

The author paints vivid word pictures, as is evident from the exciting opening paragraph of Chapter 1, in which Brooke is suddenly thrown to the deck when her friends' boat explodes.

The novel continues to propel the reader along with nearly nonstop action and edge-of-the-seat suspense, as well as a very sweet romance between Brooke Richards, underwater archaeologist, and Garrett Ciavello, police detective. Brooke feels the need to be as independent as possible, while Garrett feels the need to protect her, although he does realize her own need to feel that she can take care of herself, in spite of her handicap.

Brooke's friends, Linda and Jeff, who are graduate students, were specifically targeted in the explosion described at the beginning of the book. They had been attempting to recover a mysterious box from the ocean floor. When Detective Ciavello hears about this, he fears that this box could very well contain the remains of his cousin, Tessa, who has been missing for several months. The main suspect in her disappearance is Rico, Tessa's boyfriend, who has a criminal past.

Brooke finds herself agreeing to something she thought she'd never do again -- diving.

Author, Joya Fields has crafted a suspenseful, romantic story interweaving intrigue with extremely likeable characters such as Police detective Garrett Clavello and Brooke Richards an underwater archaeologist, who lost her parents and her leg in an earthquake. A strong and tough-minded woman from the get go, she more than holds her own in this fast-paced and unlikely romance that draws them together from the moment they meet. Beneath The Surface is aptly named when they collaborate on an investigation and we quickly find out there is more going on than meets the eye as this mystery, their chemistry and the tension builds. Like a good storyteller, Joya keeps you guessing and doesn't reveal the actual villain until the end.
