When Caroline Piasecki's ex-boyfriend posts their sex pictures on the Internet, it destroys her reputation as a nice college girl. Suddenly her once-promising future doesn't look so bright. Caroline tries to make the pictures disappear; hoping time will bury her shame. Then a guy she barely knows rises to her defence and punches her ex to the ground.
West Leavitt is the last person Caroline needs in her life. Everyone knows he's shady. Still, Caroline is drawn to his confidence and swagger—even after promising her dad she'll keep her distance. On late, sleepless nights, Caroline starts wandering into the bakery where West works.
They hang out, they talk, they listen. Though Caroline and West tell each other they're 'just friends,' their feelings intensify until it becomes impossible to pretend. The more complicated her relationship with West gets, the harder Caroline has to struggle to discover what she wants for herself—and the easier it becomes to find the courage she needs to fight back against the people who would judge her.
When all seems lost, sometimes the only place to go is deeper.

Deeper is a great, emotional NA Contemporary Romance that makes you all giddy and warm one moment, and leaves you a wrecked mess the next. Indeed, prepare yourself to be emotionally affected and make sure you don’t run out of tissues . . .

There’s a strong denounce brought to our attention here. What happened to Caroline is unpleasant, wrong and unfortunately something out of control, but that’s not enough reason to stop fighting it or give it the power to ruin lives. I like how Robin York delivers her message and puts the reader in Caroline’s shoes. You can see she kind of feels like she’s broken and needs to be ‘fixed’, and how West is the right person to help her. He’s amazing, he most certainly differs from the other guys and, looking from his side, he is in an even worst situation than Caroline’s, one that really saddens you. It needs to be said that the whole ‘not being friends’ agreement works very well especially for the tension building, which never fades away even after the passion explodes, making us see fireworks during some very hot sex scenes. Scenes that are always relevant to the story—applause and gratitude to York for that—and definitely burned in my mind forever.

With a relationship splendidly developed, a guy I dare you not to gladly want to spend every minute with, a special sensuality that permeates from every scene, and an ending that left me devastated, I can barely stand the wait to read more of Caroline and West.

    I've heard so much about this novel and by your review it looks like this is a very great book. This is definitely going onto my TBR pile!!

  2. I can't believe they actually chose to use the word swagger in this description. Is the book supposed to appeal to 12 to 15-year-olds? I kind of doubt that. Whilst the review does make it sound very interesting, the provided description totally fails it. I just hope that's not the one they choose to go with on the back-cover! 🙂

  3. The book is classified as New Adult, we are talking about characters in their twenties who go to University. I honestly don't think the description fails at all and the book has been a very great read in my opinion 🙂

  4. Well, the description per se doesn't bother me. It's the use of the word swagger. Whilst it does sound like a very interesting read, for some reason that word just pops out at me. It's like it's staring right at me, ahahahha. I just can't believe people in publishing would use it to try to entice an audience. To me it ranks right next to the shortcut LOL on the list of expressions never to be used by someone who wants to be taken seriously.

    Nevertheless, I think I am actually going to check the book out.

    You had me at warn one minute, a wrecked mess the next! *ha* Deeper seems to be a very well-written, character driven story. And that's really my kinda of book. Thanks for sharing a wonderful review. 🙂

  6. Oh wow…. sounds kind of intense!! I love how dark it sounds… It's mind blowing how modern technology can severely affect us. Great review!

  7. I like how there is a developed relationship in this one, I've been looking for some more NA to read and it seems like a lot of them lack development and just throw readers into a romance. I'll have to check my eye on this one!

  8. Haha, I couldn't be happier about that, Brandee! 😉 It is a very well written book, the characters are great and their relationship development is absolutely one of the best I've ever read so far. Hope you'll read it!

  9. Oh man! That means I need to buy more tissues, because I'm definitely reading this, Silvia! I love emotional roller-coasters, and Deeper certainly seems to fit the bill.
    I am glad to know that the relationship is well built, and that it's easy to understand Caroline.
    Great review 🙂

  10. You made my day, Lexxie! I truly hope you're going to love it as much as I did and yes, it is a big roller-coaster of emotions, so much that I still get emotional just thinking about those two… Buy lots of tissues before you start the read!

  11. Aghhhh, it's a series? That means there's no happy ending in this book 🙁 I can already imagine myself tearing up (must have tons of tissues at hand). I'll let you know once I read it how it went for me. Thanks for the review, Silvia!

  12. The second book should be out in a couple of months, I-cannot-wait! Honestly, it is painful when a book tears you apart so much, but I can't help finding it extremely good at the same time. This one in particular was devastatingly beautiful… I really hope it works well for you, too, and I will be waiting to hear your thoughts about it 🙂
