First loves, second chances… 

When Cali Morgan kicks off her perfect post-college summer in Lake Tahoe, she has everything she ever wanted: acceptance into a top law program, a gorgeous boyfriend, and an incredible summer planned with her best friend. 

Confident about her place in the world, Cali makes it her mission to be her friend’s wingwoman and help her meet guys. What Cali doesn’t count on is running into Jaeger Lang, one of her older brother’s high school friends, or the sparks that fly when she’s around him. 

Jaeger has changed, and it’s not just the added height and muscle. There’s something about him that’s deep and a little scarred. In spite of the changes, Jaeger becomes a top pick for her friend—if Cali can keep her hands off him. 

But when Cali’s boyfriend dumps her and her carefully laid plans begin to unravel, she finds herself questioning what it is she truly desires. In the midst of doubts about her future, one thing is very clear: she wants Jaeger for her own. The question is, has her friend already fallen for him? 

Deep Blue is book #1 in the Blue Series. 

This New Adult book is intended for readers over the age of 18 due to adult language, sexual content, and adult situations.

After browsing IndieSagePR's review library I came across Deep Blue and knew I wanted to read it. I applied for a review copy and IndieSagePR granted my request.

Going into this book I thought this would be your atypical NA book but how wrong was I! When it first starts off Cali is spending her summer before law school working and helping her best friend move on from her ex and find someone new but then Jaeger arrives.

Jaeger, is well... let's just say I think I added another book boyfriend to my ever growing list. He is sweet, attentive and caring. You can tell from the start how much he wants Cali and once she's single he really heats thing up *le swoon* 

However, for these two it's never plain sailing and that's why I loved this book so much! There's drama in here you would never expect to find in NA and I loved that so much. Both Cali and Jaeger have issues they need to deal with and they fight them head on together. See, there's a twist in this book that I never saw coming and I really hoped it wasn't true and that it could be worked out. After a week apart Cali and Jaeger face it head on and just when you think it's all going well. BAM. Something else happens and it implicates Cali in accusations of illegal drug possession/taking. When she wakes up and you're reading her interaction with Jaeger and her mom you get a real feel for how much Jaeger loves her and wants her. His worry is palpable through his words.

I felt so sorry for the both of them in this book, they wanted each other but the universe seemed to keep blocking them.

In the end everything is sorted and Jaeger manages to get rid of his ex for good with Cali's help, Cali regains her job that is helping her move forward with her career in art that she has decided on over her legal studies and the two of them are together and have their happily ever after.

I enjoyed this book so much and I recommend everyone reads it!
