Title: Rolling In The Deep (The I'll Never Say I Do Club)

Author: Morgan Malone

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Book Blurb:


I dare you, I double, triple dare you, to go online for three months and really look at the guys who are out there just waiting to fall in love with the awesome women you are! I bet you that you will all be head over heels and engaged by the end of the year!

Seri, Emily, Jessica, and Olivia made a vow in college never to marry when they formed The “I’ll Never Say I Do” Club. At 40, they are all rich, successful, and alone. Then Seri meets and falls in love with a man she improbably met online. At her Maine wedding, she issues a challenge to her three bridesmaids: three months to meet a man they want to marry. The consolation prize if they fail: a New Year’s trip to Hawaii. What have they got to lose?

Emily Livingston has a secret. She’s managed to keep her troubled past hidden from almost everyone for over twenty years. Only her dear friends, Seri, Olivia, and Jessica, know about the scar from the tragic accident that shattered her dreams. And destroyed her heart. She runs her personal life like she runs her growing physical therapy and fitness practice: smooth, efficient, and reserved. Men are temporary pleasures reserved for vacations and business trips. Never close to home. Until she breaks all the rules with a one-night stand too close for comfort.

Wolfgang Biddle Wharton, rich, gorgeous, super-star conductor, appears to have the world at his feet. But he knows what it is to look for new dreams when the old ones die. Wolf arrives in Saratoga Springs as a guest conductor for the Philadelphia Orchestra, looking forward to a relaxing summer residence in the Spa City. What he finds is a woman who immediately attracts him and almost as quickly dismisses him. Not used to being thwarted, Wolf sets out to woo and win Emily, at least for one more night.

They have nothing in common. Except lost dreams and rebuilt lives. And an attraction that is not satisfied in one-night. Wolf wants more, but it will take all his patience and perseverance to win Emily’s trust. Fighting against her friend’s prediction that she would find love by summer’s end, Emily must face her past before she can reveal to Wolf the injury that is more terrible than the one that almost took her life: the scarred remnants of her shattered heart.


My Review:


Will Emily find true love in the arms of a conductor? Rolling in the Deep is book two in this series and I truly enjoyed this romance. The characters are vibrant, realistic, and so much fun to read. The descriptive narration pulls the reader into the story. The romance is what makes Rolling in the Deep an unforgettable read.


Let’s discuss the characters. Emily is a heroine who stole my heart. She’s hiding so much pain behind a smiling façade. Men are for scratching an itch and keeping at arms length. But with her best friend’s challenge to open her heart and the intense attraction to Wolf, she’s at a loss. Her fear drives her to make some bad choices. Can she let go of the pain and fear to embrace love?


I also connected with Wolf. He’s a hero who is also hiding a broken heart. He’s used to women fawning over him and is in for a shock when Emily rejects him. It’s a wake-up call for him and his heart.


These characters are so well-written, they became a part of me. They’re immersive, emotional, and addictive to read. Their pain became my pain. Their passion clung to my heart. These characters drive this plot.


Once again, Morgan Malone writes a passionate romance with depth. Her words create an emotional response, and the reader is hooked. Well done.


If you’re looking for a romance that’ll leave you with a book hangover, read this book. It’s magnificent.

Author Biography:


Morgan Malone is the pen name of Deborah Sabin, a retired lawyer who turned in her judicial robes to write romantic memoir and sexy contemporary romance, which always features silver foxes and the independent women who tame them.


Morgan fell in love with romantic heroes after reading her mother’s first edition of “Gone with the Wind” when she was 12 years old. Rhett Butler became the standard by which she measured all men. Her late husband, Mitchell, met the mark. After she turned 50, she explored online dating. Most of the men she met failed to even come close but one or two surpassed even Rhett’s dark and dangerous allure. None compared to Mitch.


Morgan lives near Saratoga Springs, NY with Princess, her adopted black Lab mx. Her children and grandsons are frequent visitors. She can be found on occasion drinking margaritas at local hostelries, painting watercolors, and playing mah jongg, but look for her most often in independent book stores and the library, searching for her next great love in tales of romance, history, adventure and lust. When Morgan can’t find the perfect man, she retreats to her upstairs office and creates him, body and soul, for her pleasure and for yours. Remember: love, like wine, gets better with age.
