Title: Deeper (Caroline & West #1)
Author: Robin York
In Robin York’s sizzling debut, a college student is attacked online and must restore her name—and stay clear of a guy who’s wrong for her, but feels so right.
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 defense 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 the first book in the Caroline & West series by Robin York. It's a good New Adult romance that has an important plot line. It sends a good message to young women – never send anyone pictures of yourself that you wouldn't want others to see...and never EVER let your boyfriends take sex pictures of you.
Caroline is a good girl who was just trying to please her long-term boyfriend. However, when she broke things off with him – he decided to post her sex pictures all over the internet. Caroline is going to college in hopes to someday become a judge, and she is afraid how this will affect her future. She tries her best to have her photos deleted from as many sites as possible, but mostly she just wants to hide and fade into the background.
West is a guy at school who Caroline is interested in – especially after he stands up for her to her ex-boyfriend. West is kind of a shady character though. He is very mysterious, but one thing she knows is that he sells pot. She can't get mixed up with someone like him with the type of future she is wanting. Even her dad has told her to stay away from him. But there is something about him that she is drawn to.
The book is a little slow moving, but a nice romance develops between West and Caroline. Being with West makes her happy, and it makes her realize that she needs to stand up for herself and take action against her ex.
The frustrating thing about this book is the ending. It definitely didn't end the way I wanted it to, and I want to know what happens in the next book. I looked it up on Amazon though and book #2 is $8 – for the ebook. I have a personal rule that I never spend that much money on ebooks. I read so many books, that if I spent $8 on each ebook I would be broke. So, I'm torn. Maybe I will see if my library has the sequel.
