Natalia is framed, accused of sleeping with the enemy - until she can prove different, she's on leave. At the bar Gennie catches her eye, unfortunately Gennie has plans for Natalia - she needs her help. They go undercover to a mining colony to try and find the evidence that Gennie needs to get the Reyes family off her back but the close living arrangements don't help their attraction to one another.

This is the follow up to Caught in Amber (although I don't think the series actually has a name? Not that I can find anyway) where we first met Natalia & Gennie, the former helping Spencer and Sasha (who make an appearance in this book) while the latter first hindered then helped them.

I liked both leads in this, they both have their problems but don't let it get in their way. In fact, Gennie is risking everything to get Natalia's help - she's willing to risk her life to help her kids and get out from under the Reyes radar. Natalia is willing to help Gennie despite their initial meeting being a farce. I enjoyed the storyline, well paced and well written with a lot of action. And Natalia and Gennie's relationship is sweet, they're both scared and they both have their reasons for not pursuing it but, of course, they can't stop it from happening.

Recommended, and I discovered there was a book before Caught in Amber called Rulebreaker that I have just downloaded to my Kindle.

I liked this sci-fi romantic thriller set in the future on another planet, Nevarro. I just wish it had been clearer that this was book 3 of a 3 book series. Had I known that I’d have started with book 1! (Rule breaker). It seems that each book is standalone, but characters from book 2 at least play a small role in this. I also wondered whether, had I read book 1 first, I’d have had better knowledge of some of the terms used here. I would, for example, have liked to have known more about the mined substance keracite and I assume that the pirqs were miners but it wasn’t made clear. And as for the favoured saying, “Damn the void!” Huh?

That said, it was pacey, reasonably engaging and the relationship between Natalia and Gennie was nicely developed. It was also a pleasure to read something in which a gay relationship is accepted as entirely normal . I enjoyed some of the sci-fi stuff e.g. air cars, picture holograms and age reducing chemicals making life span much longer than the norm. A definite departure for me from what I usually read...

I’m now going to try book 1, to see if it fills in any of the blanks. Will probably skip book 2 (Caught in Amber) though as straight romantic thrillers are really not my thing…

3.0 out of 5 stars It was okay 3 Oct. 2016
By RSN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Set in the same universe as Rulebreaker, it all begins with Natalia, a CMA agent, meeting Gennie at a bar. Soon after that, they go to Gennie's hotel, and suddenly Natalia, after recovering from the sedation, finds herself tied up to the bed. As it turns out, Gennie is a known criminal (or more accurately, someone who used to work for a criminal) who thought that'd be the only way she could get the agent to talk to her. A powerful company is after something Gennie has, and she needs Natalia's help to leave the planet.

And well, I have to say I really liked Rulebreaker, I think it was fun, entertaining and I liked the characters. In this case, I did like it, but not as much. I don't know why, but I sadly found my wandering from time to time, to the point that I had to reread certain parts.

Also, unlike the other book, which was narrated in the first person by one of the characters, this time the narration is in the third person from both characters' perspectives, allowing us to get to know both of them well, but still... I didn't really connect with them, even if I did enjoy their relationship.

Overall, though, it was a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sci-fi suspense with a dash of romance 29 Jun. 2013
By LVLMLeah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read Cathy Pegau's first book, Rulebreaker, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the author's voice and that it was an action packed, thriller-ish sci-fi story as well as an f/f romance. So I was excited when she came out with a new f/f book set in the same world, Nevarro, an Earth like planet existing sometime in the future.

In this third book of the series, right out of the gate the action starts. Natalia, a Gov employee, is sexually seduced (they both totally went for it), drugged, and tied up by Gennie, a known criminal conspirator. Gennie feels it's the only way to get the Gov to look at info she has on the Reyes Corporation, which she thinks is corrupt and operating nefarious and illegal businesses. She also has a personal stake in them being caught, which she keeps secret from Natalia.

This sets the tone for most of the interaction between Gennie and Natalia throughout the book; lots and lots of sexual tension mixed with major distrust. Gennie's tactic, while pissing Natalia off, did make a huge impression and Natalia decides to help Gennie after looking over the info Gennie left behind. During the course of having to get more information by going undercover together, they are forced to work out both the constant sexual heat that keeps drawing them together as well as learning to trust that each has the other's back.

As far as both characters go, Natalia and Gennie are equally strong, independent, willing to fight for what's important to them, and are not averse to bending the rules to do so. Having similar characteristics is what keeps them on track with each other even though they get wary at times, especially Natalia who is never sure about what Gennie is hiding from her.

This is one of the characteristics of Cathy Pegau's books that I like. Her main characters usually have a strong, inner moral code even if they step out of the bounds and or if that moral code is not in step with the rest of society. This makes them very interesting and not the usual.

What's good about this story is that there isn't too much focus on their issues something that gets annoying in other books. They're constantly testing the physical boundaries of their attraction with touches, glances, innuendos, but at the same time, the constant threat and suspense that comes with working undercover and the fact that they are investigating a potentially dangerous group interjects some somberness into their interactions.

On the romance itself, I felt the author kept that on track at an even pace, slowly building up their love for one another. It starts as lust but as the story progresses it grows to something deeper in a realistic way.

Even though this is a sci-fi romance, the author does a great job at writing what I consider to be suspense. The action is fairly fast-paced and exciting. Besides the tension of being undercover, Gennie is dealing with the stress of constantly being on the run to protect, at all costs, what's most precious to her. And Natalia is dealing with unknown enemies trying to take her down at work with convincing lies and false evidence. Neither can relax or settle into a routine life until these things are settled.

As in Rulebreaker, I love that this futuristic world is fairly generic and doesn't have social taboos on sexuality. Maybe sci-fi fans will not like that there is not too much world building on the sci-fi level, however, I like that the author leaves enough room for readers to use their imaginations to add to what is not described in detail. Plus it makes it easier to follow if you step into this book without having read the first two.

Deep Deception is ultimately an entertaining read and I will be reading the next installment, if there is one, of Cathy Pegau's f/f books set in this future world. Or even any other f/f she writes.

Heat Level- 2-3- Several fairly spelled out sex scenes but not too graphically written.
4.0 out of 5 stars Scifi Romance thriller 25 July 2015
By Pip Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What I liked:

In this one the romantic tension was much higher and in far more jeopardy than Caught In Amber and Rulebreaker, with both the main characters having issues and secrets that could do far worse than simply make a romance difficult.

What I didn't like:

I didn't find either heroine as likeable as those in other Pegau books I've read, so I had a harder time connecting and emphasizing with them, despite the justification in Gennie's case. I also think that Natalia's 'illness', having been made out as something deadly, abruptly became a minor factor when I felt it should have been more pivotal.

In conclusion:

This is not my favourite of Pegau's books, but still an exciting, heart-wrenching SFR worth reading. Light on the SF but with plenty of tension, emotional and action-wise, with thriller and espionage elements.
5.0 out of 5 stars D. D. is an awesome book with surprising twist and a lovily love story. 23 July 2014
By zenabuff - Published on Amazon.com

Deep Deception was a awesome Book and audio book! I enjoyed both reading it and listening to the story at the same time, I get more out of a book by reading it on it's own but I also like to have the audio to listen to at night before I go to bed to help me relax and fall asleep; I did like this books twist and turns, the story of two woman brought together under extreme circumstance and end up both relying on each other and falling in love with each other. It's starts with a Tough as nails cop who gets herself in hot water and doesn't understand why or who her enemies are, and then gets kidnaped by this beautiful woman who has major problems of her own. In the end together the stand up and fight the bad guys and win for the good guys, And do fall for each other.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kept Hoping It Would Get Better, It Didn't 10 Aug. 2016
By Lindsay Myers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was very nearly a did not finish for me. I really really REALLY wanted to like this book and I didn't. I don't want to catalogue all of its flaws but if you don't like it by the end of the first chapter- it doesn't get better.
