*Review* The Deeper He Hurts by Lynda Aicher

deeper he hurts



In this wild and sensual Kick novel from the RITA Award–nominated author of The Harder He Falls, a sizzling affair tempts the tech guru of a popular outdoor-adventure-sports company to come out of the closet and embrace his desires.

Asher Ruggiero, a partner at Adrenaline Kick Adventures, is living a lie. As a control freak whose big Italian family thinks he’s straight, Asher likes his encounters concise, dirty, and discreet—until his company’s new rafting guide walks into work, dripping with brooding, intense sexuality. Sawyer Stevens is a mystery man with secrets and rough edges, and he makes Asher want to get to know him inside and out.

Ever since the tragic death of his parents, Sawyer has dedicated himself to the rush of adrenaline that comes from pleasure and pain. Moving from one guy to another, hiding when life gets too complicated—that’s all he can handle. So why does Asher make him long for something lasting and honest, when the gorgeous geek can’t even be true to himself? Sawyer wants to give Asher his heart, but he just doesn’t know how. After all, a life without integrity is a life without passion—and that’s the one thing Sawyer craves.



All the feels I have right now. This book was perfection. I absolutely loved it. And since it has not released yet, I will not spoil it….but suffice it to say…Sawyer and Ash…..these two could not have been more perfect for each other, and they came into each other’s life when they NEEDED each other. I was not sure what to expect from Ash after reading book one, but what I got was not what I thought would happen. While he’s a sadist he’s such a caring, loving man. He see’s something in Sawyer from the word go, and he is drawn to him like no other. Sawyer just wants someone to take away the pain, but also inflict the pain to make him forget…or to feel….he has so many issues and hangups from his past he does not think he could ever BE what Ash needs or wants even though he wants the same thing. Gah, these two guys…..This series so far has proven to be one of my favorites-like ever.

And I cannot wait for Finn’s story!!
