Going Deep is hot, exotic and wickedly naughty.

 

Tosin is my favorite of the Divemasters. In a group of laid-back man, he is the most laid-back of them all. I love his go with the flow attitude, his continued flirtatious manner and his commanding but fun and playful nature. He is the ultimate bachelor.

 

Kahori is an amazing artist and native to Cook Islands. A woman who has traveled a bit, but stays on the island for family. A sweet, kind and caring woman with an inner vixen who gets roused up beautifully.

 

Kahori and Tosin were made for each other. I loved how they both stumbled over themselves upon meeting.  I loved how the suspense of the book intertwined so much with Tosin and Kahori getting to know each other. Their relationship does happen quickly, however the events surrounding the two of them are eye-opening causing the emotions and passion to flow.

 

Jayne Rylon gave readers something very special with the DIVEMASTERS series. Ending the series on a very high note. Giving readers a glimpse of what life is like for everyone on board the Divemaster.  Awesome Alpha heroes and they’re amazing women, fun secondary characters, beautiful settings and suspenseful stories that are filled with page turning passion.

 

I read Going Hard in one sitting. Although I was sad to finish the last few pages Tosin and Kahori story,  along with the rest of the  Divemaster crew, I was more than satisfied with the ending.

 

An eCopy of this title was provided for an honest review.

Three SCUBA instructors, who happen to be sexual dominants, are about to take the ultimate plunge. If you’re extraordinarily lucky, you’ll be invited to join them on The Divemaster, where work and pleasure go hand in hand. Welcome aboard!

Archer Banks relishes his carefree lifestyle. Together with friends and fellow divemasters Miguel Torrez and Tosin Ellis, he travels the world, SCUBA diving by day, entertaining lonely female tourists by night. Until his father dies, instantly transforming Archer from a beach bum to a billionaire by shackling him with an enormous, undesired inheritance.

With the help of his family’s longtime butler, Archer is determined to turn his new golden handcuffs into a golden opportunity. He prays Miguel and Tosin will come along for the ride when he repurposes his family’s mega-yacht into a vessel well-suited for both work and hardcore play.

Never in his worst nightmares does he expect their maiden voyage to be such rough sailing. Not only is Archer’s old crush, Waverly Adams, among their passengers, but the men have also stumbled upon a vast sunken treasure—one worth killing for.

Waverly surprises Archer with an alluring naughtiness he never got the chance to experience in their younger days. Busy accepting the challenge she issues his dominant side in The Divemaster’s onboard club every night, he might be distracted and short on sleep. But could he also be blind to more dangerous facets of her personality?

When the divemasters can no longer deny there’s foul play at hand, will Archer be going down with the ship, cursed by his family’s fortune, or will Waverly turn out to be the woman of his most wicked dreams?

Jayne Rylon takes the reader to paradise in Going Down, the first book of her new Divemasters Series.

Archer Banks is living the life. Has a job he loves, getting the ladies and has seen some of the most beautiful places in the world.  He also hold a secret, that comes to light and changes the lives of many people.  Archer is good man with a conscience and soul. He’s got those alpha tendencies that I love however he feels deeply and cares. He’s likable and complex, making  me very much enjoy his character.

Waverly Adams is sassy, fun and quite adventurous. former military and accomplished helicopter pilot, Waverly has become a person that she is proud of. Hard on the surface, she can stand with the best of men. As she relaxes and let’s go of the past, a soft feminine side emerges from a brave and strong woman.

Where do I begin. I really enjoyed Going Down. Mad props to Ms. Rylon for rich and engaging details of the settling. I have never experienced the pristine water of the Caribbean. Through words with research and self experience Ms. Rylon was able to take this reader to an amazingly beautiful, tropical adventure that I hope I to one day see with my own eye. From the way the water moved to the view of the stars, it’s truly amazing.

The amount of depth and feeling within Going Down stood out to me as well. Perception is different to everyone. Archer and Waverly perceive events from the past differently, when all of views are on the table, it changes the game completely.  Sensuality played a big key with the eroticism in this book.

The secondary characters stand out and add charisma and pizzazz. Ms. Rylon set up the series and gives reader a little bit of it all. Beautiful scenery, lots of steamy hotness and a few twists. I thoroughly enjoyed Going Down!  Can’t wait to see how the remaining Divemasters fall.
