Release Blast - Down Too Deep by J. Daniels

Two single parents and three adorable kids are 
about to have a summer they'll never forget in this sexy, heartwarming new novel of the New York Times bestselling series.

Following the sudden death of his wife, Nathan Bell spent nearly two years burying himself in work and neglecting his biggest responsibility: his daughter. Overcome with guilt, he wants to connect with little Marley, but he doesn't know how to do it alone. And then Jenna Savage throws him a lifeline.

A single mom of twins, Jenna is more than capable of taking care of Nathan's adorable two-year-old and wants to help Nathan however she can. As the days go by and her attraction to Nathan grows, she can't help wondering what might happen if they became a family for real. And the closer everyone becomes, the more right it feels.

Falling in love forces Nathan to face his biggest fear, and when hearts -- both big and little -- are on the line, the only thing scarier than needing Jenna and her kids so much is losing them all.

I have been waiting for Nathan and Jenna. For so long. Nathan is a widower, alone with  his two old daughter Marley, and Jenna is a single mother to her eight year old twins Olivia and Oliver. 
Jenna is a wonderful mother who enjoys being just that. A dedicated and loving mother whereas Nathan has other priorities. Work and keeping himself busy so he can’t think about his own failures and guilt especially when it comes to him bonding with his daughter and his deceased wife. 
Jenna and Nathan had lovely chemistry and they bonded over their children. I enjoyed how Jenna made Nathan fall in love again with being a father . Also how Jenna grew closer to his daughter and Nathan to hers. They became a family and they fell in love.
The other characters from the series made appearances too. Jenna’s brother Brian and his girl Syd along with her bestie Tori which was great.

The reason for my rating all comes down to me and my expectations. I felt the focus was centered too much around the children and they took too much attention away from Nathan and Jenna as a couple. 65% revolved around Nathan and Jenna being with the children and it just became too repetitive and not much happened. I’m a huge fan of the single parent trope but here I felt the kids overshadowed their parents story wise. I would’ve liked more of their courtship. Of them exploring one another. 
Down Too Deep is the final book of the Dirty Deed series and despite my issues with it and it not being my favorite of the four books it still had great closure to all the characters. I’m still a huge fan of the author and I will continue to read her books. This just didn’t live up to my own expectations.
