Years later, Camille gets the chance of a lifetime when she's asked to take pictures of a pro football team--Heath's team. She's a divorced, single mom and really could use the money. So she accepts the job. At first, Heath doesn't recognize her. He soon realizes that this is his "waterboy" all grown up. They soon find themselves falling for each other, but then Heath backs away saying she's a distraction and messing up his football career. Will Camille be able to forgive him again and let Heath into their lives?
I loved this novel! It's the first in Virna DePaul's new sports series. Heath's interactions with Emma, a huge football fan herself, are heartwarming and sweet. It's HILLARIOUS when Heath and his football pals attend Emma's tea-pirate party and have to sit in chairs that are too small in order to have proper tea! One could also easily identify with Camille's insecurities due to her upbringing. Lastly, I thought that Heath's "gift" of the whistle back to Camille was endearing. I highly recommend this novel for any of the sports enthusiasts out there. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
I enjoyed the two of them together but I wasn't feeling the intense chemistry you would normally find with an insta-love but then again maybe it wasn't so instant, Camille was infatuated with him in High School and Heath does admit that he had feelings for her as well. Either way, this was an enjoyable read with likeable characters and it was a good start to a new series by a talented author, I look forward to Kyle's story next in Royally Deep.

Heath Dawson isn’t just a talented player in the league but also one of the best looking. Women flock to him, but when the photographer that is hired gives him the cold shoulder he is even more intrigued, especially when he comes to find out it happens to be Camille who he hasn’t seen since high school. She is no longer the awkward looking girl she once was, she is beautiful and has filled out nicely. Heath knows he wants her under him or over him, hell it doesn’t matter but she isn’t giving him the time of day. Now Heath is looking for a second chance with Camille; only he has to have a first chance to have a second but when his game starts to suffer he might have to beg for a third. Only Camille isn’t going to make it easy this time and just when he’s found her he might lose her in the end.
Down Deep was a funny and sexy read that I enjoyed, but I did have some issues with the characters; while I found them likeable and thought they had great heat between them I didn’t really see them as couple. I felt as if they were more like sex buddies. Heath I found too cocky for his own good at times and he treated Camille as if she was a yo-yo which I started to find on the annoying side. Camille took what he gave and couldn’t stay away from him. One minute she only wants sex with him and is hurt when she is treated that way then the next she wanted more. She was a little to wishy washy for my liking.
For a sports romance Deep Down didn’t have a lot of football scenes which I missed. I thought the pacing was great and the writing was flawless. The ending was a little abrupt for my taste but overall Down Deep was just an okay read for me. Will I read more of Virna. DePaul’s work? Yes, and honestly I hope this becomes a series in the long run.

Short, sweet, fun, flirty with just a tiny bit of heartache. Camille had her young heart crushed by Heath years ago in high school.Read more
