Deep Deception by Cathy Pegau
I've been looking for a good f/f romance to sink my teeth into, but you know what? Most f/f romances by recced authors are out of my budget range! I can't spent $13 on a 250 page romance novel. I don't spend that for ANY novel if I'm honest.
Anyway, Cathy Pegau is a recommended author whose books don't cost an arm and a leg, so I've picked up a handful. Deep Deception is the first one I've read. It's a science fiction, suspense, romance and a good read. It didn't satisfy my want for a good juicy romance, it's leaning more towards suspense/romance than romance/suspense if that makes any sense. I should mention that Cathy's other 2 books in this setting of Nevarro appear to be loosely linked to this one - which is the 3rd one written - but every place I've checked confirms that the books can be read separately.
The main characters, Natalia and Gennie are interesting enough if a little sparsely drawn. The story is told more from Natalia's POV, so she gets the lion share of introspection and backstory, but I found myself wanting to know more of Gennie's history. Her childhood before she hooked up with the Reyes family for instance.
Somewhat formulaic but nonetheless enjoyable, I'm looking forward to reading the rest of Cathy's books in my TBR pile.
