“Maxfield’s writing is the best thing about this book. Free-flowing and eloquent, she adds a lot of personality to her characters. Unfortunately, everything else seemed too strange for me to get on board with.” ~ Under the Covers

I’ve been a massive fan of Z.A. Maxfield for quite some time now so when I heard about the rerelease of DEEP DESIRE, I jumped on it without really thinking about it. Now Maxfield has stated that the book has undergone some revisions. Although the story remains largely the same, some changes have been made from its original release.

DEEP DESIRE has an intriguing but also strange premise. Adin Tredeger is a book connoisseur. However, there is one book that everyone seems to want their hands on. It is a historical erotica that many are too shy to actually read. Once Adin has it in his position, Donte Fedelta wants it off his hands. And yet, the book isn’t the only thing that Donte wants.

In their first encounter on a plane, Adin is in the men’s washroom, minding his own business when Donte, a stranger to him, forces his way inside. After a few terse words to each other, they have sex. It’s quite strange to be honest to have the book start off that way and didn’t immediately put me at ease. For the rest of the book, I was trying to coach myself to believe that all this was possible. However, a lot of it seemed to be too far-fetched for my liking. As a result, this book didn’t work for much as much as I hoped it would.

On the flipside, Maxfield’s writing is the best thing about this book. Free-flowing and eloquent, she adds a lot of personality to her characters. Unfortunately, everything else seemed too strange for me to get on board with. But if you’re in the mood for a adventure style vampire story, feel free to try it and tell me if it worked for you!

About Z.A. Maxfield

ZAM started writing in 2007 on a dare from her children and never looked back. Pathologically disorganized, and perennially optimistic, she writes as much as she can, reads as much as she dares, and enjoys her time with family and friends. Three things reverberate throughout all her stories: Unconditional love, redemption, and the belief that miracles happen when we least expect them.

If anyone asks her how a wife and mother of four can find time for a writing career, she’ll answer, “It’s amazing what you can accomplish if you give up housework.”

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
