GENRE: NA Contemporary Romance
SOURCE: Publisher

When Caroline Piasecki's ex-boyfriend posts their sex pictures on the internet, it destroys her reputation as a nice college girl. Suddenly here once-promising future doesn't look so bright. Caroline tries to make the pictures disappear. 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. And on late, sleepless nights, Caroline soon finds it harder to stay away. 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.


"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.
