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 four months 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 until the end of the year. 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?

  • Good book

    By Shane mott
    Really loved the series. Just felt this one was. Huge build up and quick climax and wrap up. Could have gave the end a bit more closure-length
  • Love!!

  • Loved Mason and Bailey's story!

    By Hmitch76
    I've been anticipating Mason and Bailey's story for a while. We knew from the other books that she's refused to commit to him, so in turn he refused to sleep with her anymore. I've been dying to know what her reasons were. I had all kinds of ideas, but none of them were correct. In Too Deep tells the story of Mason and Bailey from the beginning. We find out secrets that both of them have been keeping. I loved reading their story and finally getting my answers. Both of their stories as individuals and as friends went much deeper than I originally thought. Once again Ms. Ryan has written a wonderful story that I loved every second of. I hate to see the Blackhawk boys go, but I'm excited to see what Ms. Ryan writes next. I definitely recommend this book to everyone.
  • Love this second chance romance!

    By skkgagnon
    Finally! I have been waiting, not so patiently, for Mason and Bailey's passionate and tumultuous story and I was not disappointed! I absolutely loved this story of redemption and second chances! Mason and Bailey met in college and have had a fiery, passionate, complicated relationship ever since. They come from two different worlds, but don't see that in each other. Unfortunately for them, that is all others see and are determined to keep them apart. Bailey is from the wrong side of the tracks and has had to struggle to pull herself out of that world. Mason comes from privilege but doesn't rely on it. He see's Bailey for who she really is, a strong, smart, determined, sexy woman. He believes in her when she is afraid to believe in herself. This book picks up where book four, Falling Hard, leaves off. Mason and Bailey had a drunken night in Vegas with their friends and woke up married. Now Bailey wants Mason to give her an annulment because she doesn't believe she deserves such a wonderful man. Mason has other plans and refuses to let her go. But Bailey has secrets in her past that she fears Mason won't be able to forgive her for and will tear them apart. I love Mason so much! He is so sweet, kind, patient and sexy. He is so in love with Bailey and is determined to finally make her his. Mason and Bailey are so perfect together and their chemistry is explosive. Ms Ryan skillfully revealed this story in alternating past and present sequence allowing the reader to be truly engaged both emotionally and thoughtfully. She expertly weaved a tale of loyalty and betrayal, of love and heartbreak, and ultimately of hope and healing. This story is a raw and emotional journey with several twists and turns that will keep you guessing. I can't get enough of this series and this group of friends. I have grown to really care for each of them. This fun, exhilarating, emotional and sexy series is a must read!
  • Great Book! Would recommend!

    By BBBGirlsBlog
    Great Book! I have read several books from Lexi Ryan, she is definitely a good story teller. In too Deep was a real emotional roller coaster, my heart went out to Bailey and Mason, to love someone for soo long and make sacrifices and be selfless just because you believe that is what's best for all. I thought that Lexi wrote a very interesting story line, I was drawn in from the beginning and could not put the book down. Her character development of Mason and Bailey was amazing, I loved the flash backs to the past, it helped understand why things were the way they were between Bailey and Mason. Mason was a great character, he was very open and real with his emotions that at certain points your heart bled for him. Sexual tension between Bailey and Mason was crazy intense and Lexi did an amazing job of not making the book all about these great sex scenes but also about this truly complicated love story. This is the 5th book to the Blackhawk Boys series, I have not read any of the previous books, I can honestly say that I am now very interested in reading the other books in the series. I appreciated that this book can be read as a stand alone and you don't feel like your missing anything from not reading the other books. I would very much recommend this book to friends.
