Everything Avianna Linton thought she knew was shattered in one traffic stop. With her life turned upside down, she flees to the bright lights of New York City hoping for anonymity and a new life. Rising from nothing, Noah Adams holds onto his power and control with a bone-crushing grip. No one dared challenge his authority until her... Avi’s disdain for Noah is barely contained, and Noah does everything he can to restrain himself—a concept he has little experience with. There’s more between the two than either of them realize. A force looms near, hovering with deadly precision and motivated solely by revenge. Avi wonders who her new friends truly are and if she’s already in too deep. Noah, accustomed to getting what he wants, will do whatever it takes to draw Avi's in deeper. Deeper is an interracial romantic suspense novel by new author allyn lesley.
Where the fuck is that little she-devil? Zo pointed toward the dance floor, addressing his employer’s unvoiced question. “Under the ball.” Noah saw her clear as day and dancing way too close with someone who might soon be leaving the club with a limp. He blew out a breath. She knew better than this, yet she still tested the limits set up for her protection. A restraining hand on Noah’s arm paused him mid-stride. “Boss?” Noah’s eyes widened at Zo’s hand. Immediately, the younger man’s hand fell away, and he wisely stepped back. Even in the dim light, Noah saw embarrassment tinge Zo’s face. “I, um. Excuse me, Mister Adams, but I can’t let you go over there,” Zo said, swallowing the fear his boss evoked. “Let. Me?” Noah pointed at himself and straightened to his impressive six feet and five inches. “And who’s going to stop me?”
allyn lesley writes real stories about real people.
As a teen, allyn lost herself in the pages of some of Romance’s heavyweights, trusting that a happy ever after was just around the corner. In allyn’s own writing journey, as in life, she’s learned that people don’t always experience recovery and restoration after a fall. Her stories speak to the gritty side of life where the right choice isn't always easily identified and happiness not quickly gained.
If you could sit down and chat or brainstorm with any author who would you choose and why?
One of my favorite authors is Johanna Lindsey. I love her historical romances, and the easy ways she’s able to bring her characters to life.
What did you find to be the most challenging thing you encountered while writing this book?
The editing process. I had NO idea how grueling that part was. I thought I was ready to release my debut back in January especially since I’ve began writing the novel in July 2014. But it just wasn’t ready. It kind of bummed me out, but I’m glad I took the time needed to edit the novel.
For your own reading do you prefer a physical book (paperback or hardcover) or an e-reader?
For my favorite books that I grew up as a teen reading, I prefer physical books. But for the newer books, my Kindle or the different e-reader apps on my phone are just fine.
Do you have a motivational saying, special place or activity that really inspires you?
Life inspires me. I’ll drive by a person walking down the street or overhear a conversation as I take my daughter to school, and I become inspired. Inspiration is all around me.
