Synopsis (Goodreads):
Fallon is a brilliant tattoo artist with inherent magic. Tired of men and their games, she climbs onto her Harley and leaves her old life behind.

Brody is a talented motorcycle mechanic and werewolf stuck in his painful past. It's just another depressing night until he's attacked by vampires. Thinking he killed them, he runs into the night and crashes into Fallon.

Unwilling to walk away from anyone in need, she heals Brody and then takes out the vampires who aren't as dead as he thought. Her past collides with the present, and she finds herself stranded in Edenton, Washington where an old friend lives. With no ride and no real plan, she winds up staying in Brody's empty apartment.

Feeling alive for the first time in years, Brody is determined to claim Fallon's heart and keep her safe from the shadows in her past. However, she prides herself on her independence and would rather keep him safe, even from herself.

With the impending danger from the group of vampires and dark mages, they will have to work together. The closer they get, the harder it is for her to fight her attraction.

Be prepared for monsters, magic and lots of ink.
My Thoughts on In Too Deep: I have two things to say here... tattoos and sassy women. And werewolves. And BIG DANGEROUS THINGS! Okay, I had more than two things to say. As is turns out, I am seriously in love with the world that Brandy L. Rivers has created and her characters are absolutely FANTASTIC.

Fallon is powerful and dangerous and she's willing to fight on the side of right -- even if that means putting herself in danger or getting on the bad side of the ruling council. She's not afraid of confrontation and she's more than a little good at defending herself. She's also had a string of bad luck where men are concerned and she's a little gun shy at the moment. So, let's just say that Brody's sudden appearance in her life and the visceral attraction she feels for him aren't really good things in her eyes at first.


But Brody is charming and sweet and he falls hard for the sassy Fallon the first time he sees her. She can't help but LIKE the guy. And like coupled with panty melting attraction is always a good thing, in my opinion.

The world building here is big and grand. Werewolves, vampires, fey, druids, magic users, mind control and SO MUCH MORE. It all comes together nicely and left me clamoring for more. Did I mention the tattoos? Because tattoos are kind of my weakness and a fierce lady who can imbue magic into them to protect those she cares about makes me almost weak in the knees.

I have the prequel waiting for me. I'm excited!
