New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan brings readers a sexy NFL player who’s pulled out all the stops for one more chance with the love of his life. 

I have thirty days to make my wife fall in love with me or let her go forever.

I loved Bailey Green long before she watched her loser ex take his last breaths. I held her while they lowered his coffin into the ground, stilled her shaking hands when the nightmares would tear her from sleep. I waited for her through her grief. But while she was always willing to let me in her bed, she refused to let me in the one place I longed to be—her heart.

Tired of playing second string to a dead man, I let her go. I moved to Florida to begin my NFL career and tried to pretend my perfect life didn’t leave me empty. I’d almost given up. Until one drunken night in Vegas, we stumbled down the aisle and said “I do.”

In exchange for the divorce she wants so badly, she’s agreed to remain my wife for thirty days. She has no idea the favors I’ve called in or the lies I’ve told to get her here, but if I succeed, none of that matters.

My secrets always seemed justified, but Bailey has her own—secrets that explain why she always pushed me away, secrets that make me wonder if I should have let her. Now we’re in too deep and I might lose the only girl I’ve ever loved and the best friend I’ve ever had.

In Too Deep is a sexy and emotional novel intended for mature readers. It’s the fifth book in the world of the Blackhawk Boys, but can be enjoyed as a standalone.

Football. Secrets. Lies. Passion. These boys don’t play fair. Which Blackhawk Boy will steal your heart?

Book 1 – SPINNING OUT (Arrow’s story)
Book 2 – RUSHING IN (Christopher’s story)
Book 3 – GOING UNDER (Sebastian’s story)
Book 4 – FALLING HARD (Keegan’s story)
Book 5 – IN TOO DEEP (Mason’s story)


My FAVOURITE in the series! I won’t lie, this was the book that I was waiting for from the very first few chapters of book 1 and finally, in book 5 of the series, I got my wish – a HEA for Mason & Bailey!

As usual with the Blackhawk Boys books, things start off light hearted but gradually turn into an emotional ride. Mason has been wanting a relationship with Bailey since college, and now that he is a famous NFL player he has decided that since they got married in a drunken stupor in Vegas, he is going to do everything in his power to keep his wife. Bailey, on the other hand, is as always, keeping him at arm’s length – she does not want to have anything more than friendship with him, she is keeping far too many secrets and the last thing she wants is to lose him completely.

I loved the push and pull of their relationship, and I was pleasantly surprised with the direction that the author took this couple in. If you love a friends-to-lovers, football based storyline, then I highly recommend this book. Add in a college theme, then the whole series is a must.

Great conclusion to a really enjoyable series.

In Too Deep is part of a series of standalone New Adult Romance novels. Told from dual POV.
