After weeks on a sold-out tour, singer Cady Ward is coming home for the holidays. But after one too many episodes of fan-craziness, Cady’s manager decides that she needs protection—in the form of muscled cop Conn McCormick. Longing for peace and quiet to prepare before her next album drops, Cady doesn’t need a bodyguard just to deal with some vague email threats…though she can’t deny that close proximity to Conn’s body is a very nice place to be.

Conn is in the midst of a career scandal when his boss assigns him to pop-star guard duty. It’s a poor use of his skills, even though Cady’s feisty nature proves the perfect distraction for Conn while Internal Affairs investigates his case. What begins as a sizzling attraction becomes something deeper than either Conn or Cady could have expected. But when Conn uncovers the sinister plan behind the threats to Cady, he’s faced with a professional dilemma: To save her life, will he risk having a future with the only woman who’s ever touched his soul?

Going Deep is the 5th book, in the Alpha Ops Series penned by Anne Calhoun. I can say without a doubt that this book can be read as a standalone.

Going Deep was a romantic suspense like non-other. It was in fact the first romantic suspense that I’ve read that had a moral to the story. Based on reading only one other book in this series. I would have to pick this one as my favorite.

Under the Surface (Alpha Ops #4)

Eve Webber, the gorgeous and savvy owner of Eye Candy, knows better than anyone that growing up on the wrong side of the tracks comes with certain complications. Determined to run a clean business and fix up the East Side, Eve’s plans get temporarily stalled when a potential new hire walks into her bar. The sexual chemistry crackling between them is a potent distraction…even if she refuses to mix business with the promise of pleasure.


Detective Matt Dorchester lives by strict rules that have kept him alive in impossible situations. When his latest undercover assignment has him playing a bartender, his desire for the passionate owner has him breaking every single one. Eve is in danger and her life depends on his secrecy. But once their attraction reaches a climactic conclusion, Matt must make a desperate choice: Tell her the truth about who he really is—or risk a once-in-a-lifetime love to save her life?


My Review:  If you like you men hot and wild, if you like your romance story steamy and hot. Under The Surface book 4 in Anne Calhoun Alpha Ops series, would be the book you wish to pick up a copy of. I never read any books in this series. So, this series could be read in any order. But after reading this Eve Webber was trying to run a legitimate business but its difficult when outside forces is hindering your efforts. Eve wasn’t looking for help, but she shore wasn’t going to turn away the sexy Chad the new bartender.

Under The Surface was a good romantic suspense, with the main focus on the interaction between Chad/Matt and Eve. Very nice character development which the chemistry between the two main characters wasn’t forced.

I am definitely going back and start at the beginning of this series.
