Going Under 
Falling Under Trilogy
Book One 
Jeffe Kennedy

Genre: Erotic Romance

Book Description:

Knowing all too well the damage online trolls can inflict, game designer Emily Bartwell takes privacy seriously. Living in solitude and working remotely under a male alias gives her a sense of security. The sexy writer renting the house next door ignites desires she’d forgotten she had, and when he invites her to play games of a very different sort, Em is ready and willing. Even if it means breaking all her own rules to abide by his.

Undercover tech reporter Fox Mullins is so close to the biggest scoop of his career: finding the elusive programmer Phoenix. An increasingly erotic adventure with his reserved but passionate new neighbor is the ideal way to heat up the chilly Pacific Northwest nights as he tracks the brilliant gamer.

At first Fox is happy to help Em explore her newly awakened kinky side, no holds barred, no strings attached. But as they push the limits of intimacy, both physical and emotional, Fox discovers he’s not the only one keeping secrets. And revealing hers may mean betraying the one woman who embodies everything he desires.

My Review

I would like to begin by thanking the author, Jeffe Kennedy, for sending me the ARC in order to do this review. The premise of this book was definitely different from what I normally read. Being different though was not a bad thing because I was pleasantly surprised by how intrigued I was with this story line.   

Emily is our "leading lady" who lives by herself in a secret location and has cut herself off from the general public. Certain troubling past "occurrences" are responsible for her decision to go under the radar and work under an alias. I have to admire her a little for what she had to sacrifice.  

Fox Mullins.....what can I say? I think I may have swooned a few times! He's the new, sexy neighbor who also happens to be an undercover writer for a tech magazine. He's on a mission to expose some secrets about a certain gamer who goes by the name Phoenix. So far he has been able to track Phoenix to a certain location and is now trying to figure out which person in this town fits the description. 

Now, (and this is just my opinion) I could see just from the book blurb that this sort of situation could end up ending very badly. I'm of course not going to give any thing away that will spoil the outcome, but I will say that my predication was a little off. I wasn't disappointed at all with how everything unfolds. I'm excited to see if the author is going to continue with this story and let us see what happens on the other side.  I do recommend this book to everyone if you are looking for something a little different but still gives us the romance we so love!
