About the book:

After weeks on a sold-out tour, singer Cady Ward is coming home for the holidays. But after one too many episodes of fan-craziness, Cady’s manager decides that she needs protection—in the form of muscled cop Conn McCormick. Longing for peace and quiet to prepare before her next album drops, Cady doesn’t need a bodyguard just to deal with some vague email threats…though she can’t deny that close proximity to Conn’s body is a very nice place to be.
Conn is in the midst of a career scandal when his boss assigns him to pop-star guard duty. It’s a poor use of his skills, even though Cady’s feisty nature proves the perfect distraction for Conn while Internal Affairs investigates his case. What begins as a sizzling attraction becomes something deeper than either Conn or Cady could have expected. But when Conn uncovers the sinister plan behind the threats to Cady, he’s faced with a professional dilemma: To save her life, will he risk having a future with the only woman who’s ever touched his soul?
What these bestselling authors have to say about Anne Calhoun’s romances:
“Scintillating sexual chemistry!”—Lauren Dane
“Uncommonly good storytelling.”—Beth Kery

My Thoughts:
Anne Calhoun definitely has a way with writing chemistry between characters; Cady and Conn had some electrically charged scenes, enough to get me hot and bothered, and that was the best part of Going Deep to me.  I can't say that the story knocked my socks off or that is was particularly compelling, but it was entertaining. The romance was low in frustrating relationship drama, a plus for me.  

When a story is categorized as "romantic suspense" I look forward to some exciting twists and turns, some danger, and while it was a surprise to find out the identity of the stalker/saboteur I was a little disappointed.  The ending just sort of fizzled out for me, both with the mystery and the romance, even though I was happy about how things turned out between Cady and Conn.

Going Deep was an uncomplicated, nice romance, easy to fly right through.
