Must Read Monday: In Waters Deep

Here is a naughty story based on the nursery rhyme, Jack and Jill. In Waters Deep by Kelly Yeakle.

Only .99 cents!

Jillian Lewis isn’t looking for love. Jack Monroe is a well-known bachelor. But when their worlds collide, which one will take the plunge first?

New at the law offices of Monroe & Monroe, Jillian Lewis isn’t interested in the well-known bachelor and boss’s son, Jack. That’s what she tells herself anyway.

Jack has never been big on commitment, until now. One look at Jillian and he’s smitten.

Can these two move past rumors and their own personal issues to find happiness in each other’s arms?

This story was sizzling and clever. I loved the way the author took a few lines from the old nursery rhyme and weaved an all new tale around it. The conflict between the two characters was enough to make me wonder, how will they ever end up in a relationship?

I also loved the heroine for her attitude. She didn't melt and scream, "Do me!" I love stories where the heroine is strong, knows what she wants, and walks that path despite the adversities it might cause. For being a short tale, this one packed a lot of punch. I highly recommend this for a Must Read Monday! ~ D. F. Krieger
