We’ve met and gotten to know a little about Sweet Pea (Lily) in a few of the previous books and I’m glad to finally have all the details of what’s been going on with her and the awful incidents where she ended up hiding out at Dominion the last few years. Lily has been especially secretive regarding her past, however the time has come for her to step up and face her painful past head on, or risk others being hurt by the same person who did unspeakable things to her. Thing is, she’s really gun-shy and doesn’t trust very easily and although she’s being protected at Dominion, she’s never been able to fully open up about exactly what happened to her seven years previous. That’s where the sexy Stone Sutter comes in. Since first meeting Lily months prior to this story taking place, there was something about her that drew him in. He never forgot about or gave up on seeing her again. He did need her help but he also wanted to get to know her on a different level. In order to do that, he was going to have to break down some of her walls. Lucky for him some of the fellas at Dominion (BDSM club) taught him a few techniques that might help him earn her trust.
It’s really hard to talk about the story without giving anything away, but I will say there are several plot twists and there is a perfect balance of emotion and steamy hot sex. The characters have great chemistry and it was fulfilling to watch them bond and at the same time, heal. Maybe I enjoyed it so much because they spent a great deal of their “getting to know each other” time at Jack’s cabin in the bayou. OOHH at the memories I have of the cabin. There must be something magical about that place. Falling in Deeper not only kept me on the edge of my seat, it reminded me why I fell in love with the Wicked Lovers series in the first place.
Lily comes out of her shell is so many ways in this book, it’s like watching a friend re-discover the person they were always meant to be. She is so strong, and is trying so hard to make the best decisions she can all on her own, like she’s always had to. Her whole decision making process felt real and honest. As much as I wanted to shake her and tell her to trust someone already! She never came across as weak or incapable. She reminds me of London, or Callie. She’s willing to walk away to keep herself and those she loves safe without it seeming like a copout. She was surprising and funny and absolutely endearing all at once. Her threat was real and even though you knew there would be an HEA (this IS a romance after all….) you still felt the turmoil and doubt. And nice twist at the end with the bad guys! Holy crap those were some of the worst ones yet! I did not see that coming!
Stone, on the other hand, is quite possibly the most seductive male in this series since Jack. His way with Lily is fierce and beautiful at the same time. His need for her is so palpable it drips from every word he whispers and is behind every command. There was nothing perfect about Stone, which made him absolutely perfect. He was smart but made bad choices, he was thoughtful and caring but still demanding and devious. I distinctly remember him being introduced in Wicked for you. In one quick paragraph we find out Axel really doesn’t have feeling for Sweet Pea and that Stone does. Boom, it is on. Even then, Stone has a designing way about him. He has a sense of humor but it is dark and he is single minded in a way that makes you trust him. It’s confidence, and it’s sexy as hell. The first time they are together it’s his words more than his touch that had me turning up the A/C! His attraction to Lily is very primal and it is written with that intensity. It could easily have been too much. His pursuit was so sexual, but his patience with her was entirely sincere.
In the end, this read had characters with near flawless chemistry, the read itself was fluid and beautifully written, the tension and danger level of the antagonists was relatively high, the sexual tension and sex scenes were moving and scorching at the same time...this really is one of the best books in this series.
Stone is an ex-con entrusted to persuade the young witness of a horrible crime to testify against a man who is now seeking the office for Governor of California. Lily, or Sweet Pea, has been running for 6 years to escape the horrors of her past, her little angel, Regina Rose, and the evil man who brutally murdered her mother, little brother and her best friend in an attempt to keep her quiet. Lily does not give out her trust easily and it takes quite a lot for Stone to earn it from her. After a close call, near death experience, Stone takes her away to hide in a cabin, where he slowly breaks her walls down. Her sexual experience is very limited, which makes Stone rise to the challenge and boy does he! Lily has never experienced such passion before and can’t get enough of Stone! This is where you will need a fan to cool off!
“And just so you know, the cabin comes with a fully equipped playroom. Have fun.”
“This is how I want you.” His dark, deep voice filled her ear - and her head. “Wet. Eager. You’re aching, aren’t you?” “Yes, Stone.”
As Stone and Lily are cocooned in their lust and love nest, the murderer is upping the stakes in trying to find her. Then her former Dom, Axel, comes into the picture and tears Stone and Lily apart with a misinterpreted reveal that makes her feel so betrayed.
“I’m not a thing or a possession. Or a trophy,” she hurled at them. “I’m a woman with a heart that used to beat.”
So what happens? Does the murderer succeed in eliminating Lily? Who from Lily’s past also wants her dead? Does Stone go back to prison? 1-click this latest Wicked Lovers book to find out the answers, you won’t be disappointed!

Falling In Deeper is the absolute BEST story so far in the Wicked Lover Series. I thought nothing could top Wicked For You, but I should of known that Miss Black would do it with flying colors. I am dead serious when I say, that Falling In Deeper knocked out Wicked For You and Axel. Stone stole my heart and Lily is my new favorite heroine! This book had ALL the feels. I cried for everything Lily went through and I sighed SOOOOOO FREAKING MUCH with Stone and how he treated Lily. This story is one of a kind and I am so honored to have had a chance to read and review this incredible story. Fans will fall head over heels for Falling In Deeper, no doubt about it!
Falling In Deeper gets a HEART FELT AND SEXY FIVE SHOOTING STARS! If I could give it a 100 stars, I would. In a heartbeat! This story is incredibly passionate, breath-taking, sexy, and about the best feeling book I have read in this series so far. Every book is amazing but Falling In Deeper had an extra special something that I can't even put into words. Well done Miss Black! I can hardly wait for the next book.
Told from dual third person perspectives (Lily and Stone) FALLING IN DEEPER focuses on the search for the person(s) threatening Lily Taylor, and Stone’s need to convince Lily to testify against a brutal rapist and killer who murdered her friend years before. When an attack against Lily ends with a car bomb explosion, Stone hides Lily in a cabin in the woods, hoping to gain her trust and protect her from the evil outside. What ensues is the building relationship between a young woman destroyed by her past, and a man whose own history has Lily questioning the lesser of two evils. When the truth about Stone’s intent is revealed, Lily runs into the very people she was hoping to avoid.
The relationship between Stone and Lily is difficult. Lily is the receptionist at Club Dominion, and a woman who recently lost her Dom to the love of his life. Axel Dillon found love and although he was reluctant to discontinue his D/s relationship with Lily, Lily needed someone who was able to help her navigate her recovery to help battle her demons. Struggling to find control, Lily accepts Stone’s offer to be the Dom to her sub, and Stone spends most of the story line trying to convince our heroine to trust him but herein lies the conflict-Stone has not been honest about his reasons for approaching Lily, and her trust is destroyed when the truth is revealed. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and provocative. The Dom/sub content is tame, due to the nature of Lily’s past, in comparison to many other stories and series. Stone does not pressure Lily, and bides his time taking his cues from the woman with whom he is falling in love.
There are several secondary and supporting characters including Axel Dillon-Lily’s former Dom who still claims rights to Lily’s safety; Sean, Thorpe (Dominions Club owner and head Dom), and Callie (Theirs to Cherish #8); and Heath-Mystery’s (Axel’s fiancé) former bodyguard. The requisite evil comes in many shapes, and wants revenge for sins of the past. The world building focuses on the developing relationship between Dom and sub but the majority of the story line does not involve the Dominion Club.
FALLING IN DEEPER is a story about betrayal and trust; revenge and retribution; running from the past, and moving towards a better future. The premise is intriguing with some twists and turns that you won’t see coming. The characters are passionate; the romance is captivating. Shayla Black will seduce your mind into a world where fantasy becomes reality.
