Deep (Chicago Underground #8 by: Skye Warren

Dark. Powerful. Dangerous.

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 criminal empire, 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.


We finally get the book about Phillip. (Squeeeeee)

Phillip has had a very hard life and he continues to lead a hard life. He says its to protect his family, but I really believe most of it is to protect himself.

The first time he layed eyes on Ella he wanted her. At the time she was just a broken little girl (well that is what he called her and she was only fifteen at the time and he was thirty.) He let her go, but he kept watch on her. Still wanting her.

After she had gotten in college something happened and he went to protect her and along the way he got hurt. Ella took care of him and he took her by gun point out of her dorm room. He told her he was not going to let her go now that he had her. She didn’t know what to think. Her body was happy he came back and so did her heart but at the same time she was pissed that he wouldn’t let her go.

As they go around and try to find who it was that attacked Phillip they grew closer but he would also pull away. She gave herself to him and she knew that he was not going to give him his heart, but she seemed to try anyway.

Some things happened (don’t want to spoil the book) and during this time they had sex and the way it happened she knew it was goodbye. When she woke up he was gone. She was broken hearted. She thought she might be pregnant because Phillip was trying to get her pregnant so she would be bound to him for life. It turned out negative but that seemed to break her too.

She went back to college and one night when she got home Phillip was inside. He had been sending her postcards again like the last time except this time they were from all over the world. He was looking to find himself I guess and he realized that no matter where he went she was always going to be in his heart. Even on the other side of the world she was on his mind. He couldn’t take it anymore and he came back for her except this time he didn’t just take. He asked.

They ended up traveling and guess what….. not sure if he asked or not this time but she did get a baby in her belly and they started on their family.

I really hope Skye comes out with a book that reviews all of the characters from Chicago Underground on what they have been up to. That would be cool. Over all this is a series I would highly recommend.
