Go Deep by Rilzy Adams
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Go Deep is a sexy friends-to-lovers erotica that also manages to be quite adorable. Facing a career-threatening bout of writer's block, erotic novelist Navaya decides to enlist her best friend Xander for some sexual inspiration. This sets them off on a lusty rollercoaster ride of emotions neither of them had ever allowed themselves to feel, fearing that they'd ruin their life-long friendship. By the end, their lifetime of devotion and irresistible attraction to each other become too overwhelming to ignore.
This is a take on a classic trope that was fairly well done but not particularly unique. There aren't any notable twists or turns in the story that sets it apart in any special way. However, the chemistry between Navaya and Xander was intriguing enough to carry the plot. I was admittedly frustrated by their reluctance to just make it official already; their hesitance seemed to be somewhat ridiculous given how close they were. I think it would be more understandable if there were some discernable barrier keeping them from making the move or some external challenge that they needed to overcome. I also found myself annoyed by the typos. I don't usually trip over a couple of misspellings here and there but this book definitely could've used another round of editing.
Frustrations aside, it was also great to be along for the ride as Xander and Navaya explored the depths of their sexual attraction. Rilzy Adams can write a sex scene, which honestly is what matters the most for a quick & lighthearted erotic read. Overall, the book was enjoyable and tantalizing enough to hold my attention, and I'll definitely check out more books by this author.
