Skye Warren – Deep



Philip Murphy has all of Chicago under his thumb. Except me. We met in a perfect storm of violence and lust. He saved me and then disappeared from my life. Now I pretend I never knew that kind of darkness. I focus on midterms and campus parties, as if they can wipe the slate clean. Then he turns up outside my dorm room—wounded and barely conscious. He’s the head of a crime syndicate, a powerful man, but he needs me now. There are traitors in his midst. I can help him, but I can’t fall for him. Not again.


This was a very dark romance story.  The beginning was a bit much for me to handle.  Ellie and Philip meet when Philip hides teenage Ellie from a group of men that attempted to gang rape her.

Philip is open about his criminality.  He’ll take any opportunity to take what he wants.  But he isn’t all bad.  “That’s why I stayed away from you for so long, kitten.  Because I cared about you.  Because I f*cking love you, and you deserve better than this.”

Ellie truly believes that she is unloveable.  “I had worked my whole life for acceptance from people who wouldn’t love me back, the princess of lost causes.”  “But I wasn’t enough.  I never had been.  Not for family.  And definitely not for Philip.”

It is sad how both Philip and Ellie think so little of their selves.  This overall dictates an overall feeling of bleakness throughout the story.

While this book is too dark for my personal taste, I found a lot of the story line to be interesting.  And, the story is filled with unexpected turns, which made me want to read until the end.
