Title: Knee Deep: A Second Chance Romantic Comedy (Love in the Suburbs Book 4)
Author: D.E. Haggerty
Genre: Romantic Comedy, Contemporary Romance
Just when I think I've got it all figured out - BOOM! - in walks trouble. It's taken me years, but my life is finally back on track - new job, new friends, a complete new Violet! I don't even cry myself to sleep every night anymore. But then he walks through the front door of my new workplace. How dare he come in here and ruin everything for me - again! Luke Freaking Bauer. Not the boy who got away. Nuh-uh. Not even close. The boy who tossed me aside when I needed him the most. But when I look deep into those hurt eyes, I forget I'm the one who was wronged. Oh boy. I'm knee-deep in trouble and sinking fast. Knee Deep is book 4 of the Love in the Suburbs series but can be read as a standalone.
Violet has to quit the one job she loves because of him. Stinking Luke Bauer. He broke her heart into a million pieces years ago, yet he acts as if it’s her fault. As if. He’s ruining her life all over again and she’s putting her foot down. When Frankie and her friends intervene, the horrible truth comes out. Luke looks at her with those puppy-dog eyes and her heart forgets about pain and only wants one thing: him. Violet: I better get my life together and stay away from Luke. Ooh boy, I’m knee-deep in trouble and I can’t help myself.
Knee Deep is book four in this series and I must admit, there’s a fair bit of drama in this one. Both hero/heroine think they’re the hurt party and it leads to all sorts of misunderstandings. I liked the interplay between Luke and Violet. There’s plenty of sexual tension and like I said, drama. Knee Deep is perfect for readers who love angsty romance. Well-written with a fast-moving romance. The emotional factor is strong, so make sure you have some tissues nearby. The ending was, in my opinion, a great way to end the series. A superb romance and one I highly recommend!

I grew up reading everything I could get my grubby hands on, from my mom's Harlequin romances, to Nancy Drew, to Little Women. When I wasn't flipping pages in a library book, I was penning horrendous poems, writing songs no one should ever sing, or drafting stories which have thankfully been destroyed. College and a stint in the U.S. Army came along, robbing me of free time to write and read, although on the odd occasion I did manage to sneak a book into my rucksack between rolled up socks, MRIs, t-shirts, and cold weather gear. After surviving the army experience, I went back to school and got my law degree. I jumped ship and joined the hubby in the Netherlands before the graduation ceremony could even begin. A few years into my legal career, I was exhausted, fed up, and just plain done. I quit my job and sat down to write a manuscript, which I promptly hid in the attic before returning to the law. But practicing law really wasn’t my thing, so I quit (again!) and went off to Germany to start a B&B. Turns out running a B&B wasn’t my thing either. I polished off that manuscript languishing in the attic before following the husband to Istanbul where I decided to give the whole writer-thing a go. But ten years was too many to stay away from my adopted home. I packed up again and moved to The Hague where, in between tennis matches and failing to save the world, I’m currently working on my next book. I hope I’ll always be working on my next book.
