It was another day at the ranch, training horses and working fifteen hour days.  And then the last person I ever expected showed up.  Lake McCain: a Marine, tall, ripped—and the best friend of my dead fiancé.  Cal died to save Lake, and now Lake claims that he carries a debt to me that he can never repay.

I wanted to brush him off.  But then my mom, the manager of the ranch, went and hired him.  We spend hours working together with the horses.  Lake doesn’t say much.  He’s layered and dark and he tries to seem shallow and simple.  But he isn’t.  There are things under his surface that matter.  He works, quiet and strong, and never once lets me down.  

Until he confesses that he may be falling in love with me.  I can’t deny that there is something between us.  But a relationship?  I just can’t.  I’ve used up all my chances at love.  My past relationships have ended in death or disaster, and now I have to live with all of that.  

I’m Riley James, and there are depths to Lake—depths to myself—that I don’t think I’ll ever fully understand.

  • Amazing

    I loved this book a lot. There was a whole lot of American Pride going around and it was beautiful to see. One thing I have to say is the author kept referring to Lake as a soldier, he’s a marine not a soldier.
  • Middle of the road

    By K.O'Dell
    If I weren’t from a home and not raised by a Marine myself I probably couldn’t have finished this, but the authors love and American pride kept me glued to it. Parts were slow here and there but all in all lots of twist and turns and a broken soul who finds home in the last place expected. Finished reading all in one day. Perfect for a lazy Sunday. So from a pro American military daughter, Semper Fi.
  • The kind of book you don’t want to put down!

    By sbsbrinson
    Just loved this story! It’s a sweet and sad story of love and loss but also a story of being found and love that will stand the test of time. Highly recommend it!
  • A great story that sticks with you

    It's been a long time since I picked up a book and was not able to put it down until I finished it...but the story of Riley James and Lake McCain sucked me in and wouldn't let go of me. The way that Keary Taylor tells you their story really makes you feel like you are there. It's like a could smell the cedar and hay of the barns. If you are looking for a story about real love, and sacrifice, and friendship, then you will love Depths of Lake. I know I did...and I do not normally read these types of books!
