After the death of her brother, Rachel
Hart is mired in grief. Only spending time on a bench by
the harbor and working on her degree interest her at all.
Then she meets Dr. Dylan Finbar, a guest lecturer for her
class on mythology and legends. She has no idea how long
Dylan’s been waiting for her…
Soul Deep mixes mythology with themes of
grief, loss, and learning to live again. I like mythology a
lot, and I wanted to love the story, but I just couldn’t.
Rachel is a very sympathetic character. I felt sad for her
and the loss of her brother, and it was easy to hope for her
to be happy. The problem was that everything happened way
too fast. It was the classic “we’re fated mates so we’re
instantly in love” type of setup, which I am not a fan of in
general. Dylan wasn’t all that well developed, and most of
the story is either sex or seduction. If you’re in the mood
for a quick, hot read with a mythological twist, you may
like Soul Deep, but I found it to be a bit
shallow for a tale about soul mates.
