Book Review: The Deepest Blue (Roadmap To Your Heart #2) by: Christina Lee

Release Date: December 4, 2015
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
"Lee exchanges skyline for swampland in the next book of her male/male romance series, Roadmap
to Your Heart.

Rugged and conventional Callum Montgomery enjoys running Shady Pines hunting preserve, except for the secret that’s eating him alive. When his sister brings a date for a family wedding, he can’t stand the arrogant city slicker with the stick up his perfectly fine ass. He doesn’t understand his draw to Dean, who pushes his buttons at every turn, but he’d never dream of betraying his sibling over some lust fueled fantasy.

Handsome and conscientious Dean Abbott is a research assistant in his university’s biology lab. When his roommate, Cassie, begs him to be her pretend date in front of her meddling family, he begrudgingly agrees to help. He doesn’t anticipate being enchanted by the countryside, the colorful cast of characters, or her sexy and brooding straight brother.

When contempt turns to passion and leads to stolen moments in a sugar cane field, Callum can’t help longing for the kind of connection he believes he can never have. But not even the world’s most heart-melting kiss can bridge the vast philosophical differences between the men.

Dean’s return to his urban lifestyle leaves him restless, his mind continually wandering to the charming setting that spoke to something missing deep inside him. Because you can take the city boy out of the country but you can’t make him forget the intriguing man he left behind."

My Thoughts:

Christina Lee never disappoints guys and I really enjoyed The Deepest Blue. It had great characters and a sweet romance and I just loved the story.

Callum and Dean are both really great. I took to Dean a bit more, but that’s the city girl in me I’m sure. Callum took a bit longer for me to warm up to, but I really liked him and my heart broke for him. Its not easy for him and I was so proud of how he overcame everything. I thought those two worked so well together and they proved that opposites do attract. I loved the city boy meets country boy aspect and I really liked how their differences complimented one another.

I also really loved the secondary characters. Cassie is a great sister and a great friend and I adored her. She was really fantastic and I loved both her relationship with Dean and Callum. I also loved Grammy. She was fantastic. But the one who really stole my heart was Billie. He is such a great kid. I loved how he saw more than others thought. Callum was so great with him and I loved watching Dean take a liking to him too. Billie is just a great character and I have hopes that one day when he is older he will get a book of his own.

What I also loved about this one is how different it felt from The Darkest Flame. Even though this is the same series, both books felt completely different and I really liked that. These two novels really and truly stand on their own. Not like some series where they stand alone but you miss some little mentions or jokes, no these are really their own entities and I thought that was great.

All in all, The Deepest Blue was a really great read and I loved Callum and Dean. If you want a great story with great characters and a great romance this is the book for you.
