Big Little Lies. Deeper is by far one of my favorite books of the year and I know by the end of this year, it still will be fresh on my mind. I was hooked from the first page. I laughed, I cried, I cursed and neglected pretty much everything while I finished it. Most importantly I cheered that York could take on a subject so serious and relevant, combine it with some truly unique and interesting characters, and end up with a book that was so engaging and emotional.
I loved how real everything felt, the talks, the overnight baking sessions, the uneasy emotional pull and push and even extremely hot sex. Robin York impressed me so much with Deeper. Maybe even hotter. Read An Excerpt. Paperback —. Buy the Audiobook Download: Apple Audible downpour eMusic audiobooks. Add to Cart. Product Details.

Looking for More Great Reads? He's very secretive about his past but he's very loyal and supportive of Caroline But he wants too because he doesn't want to be close to anyone he has demons of his own to fight!
This book is a perfect example of how 2 people learn to trust again. Does everything go as planned for them? It has real human qualities of love, commitment, desire, want, need, perception, disappointment, acceptance The other thing I loved about this book is you get to see through Caroline's eyes how she deals with the disappointment of her parent I say "parent" if you read the book you'll understand.
As a parent myself, even though I see her side of the story I feel the same as her Dad I mean you've preached and preached what NOT to do and you know they aren't going to listen to everything you say however she's DONE it and now you gotta deal with it!
It's a consensual act that got exploited, which is bad but as parent you have to step up! Final thoughts The reason I loved this book was because I could look at it from both sides One simple pic or comment in our time, because the Internet is forever can ruin you!!!! You can fight back Or would all be lost already? View all 44 comments. Jan 26, Giselle rated it really liked it Shelves: A slow budding romance, loads of chemistry, and highly character driven; Deeper has a lot to offer.
Revenge porn is something that happens all too often, and unfortunately continues to be legal in most States. Finding those sex pictures of herself after a break-up was only the beginning of a very long, very dark chapter in Caroline's life. Not only is she plagued with the knowledge of everyone having seen her during such an intimate act, she's ashamed, haunted by the voices of the men who call h A slow budding romance, loads of chemistry, and highly character driven; Deeper has a lot to offer.
Not only is she plagued with the knowledge of everyone having seen her during such an intimate act, she's ashamed, haunted by the voices of the men who call her vile names, describe the repulsive things they'd do to her in comments, making her wary of anyone that looks her way. This is not something that ever goes away.
Deeper is not a fast paced read. It's a slow character-oriented story that begins with Caroline living through an incredibly difficult time, building up to her realizing who's truly to blame despite all the fingers pointing at her. I truly admire her for learning to be above it all. Even though there is a guy involved in her getting her strength back, it's done in a way that had me happy she found someone to see her for who she was, not who she thought she had become.
Sometimes, you just need to be nudged by the right person. West and Caroline aren't instant lovers, though. Quite the opposite actually. West being so driven to give his sister a nice life made him reluctant to let someone into his own.
He could not allow anyone to disrupt the road he was on. This doesn't mean there was no immediate chemistry.
From the start, their attraction is like a character in itself. Their ignoring it just makes it all the more infuriating, albeit in a good way. I loved their banter and fun-loving relationship; they're so different from each other, yet fit so right together.
The time spent at the bakery just keeping each other company might be "boring" to some, but I loved the whole atmosphere and it's where we see them connect beyond attraction.
The cast of mutual friends become a group that makes this story even more character driven. They all help get Caroline through this. Each one adds to the depth to this novel. I already mentioned it's not a fast paced read. Some parts in the middle did drag a bit where I wished it would have moved along faster, but overall I'm satisfied with the lack of urgency this plot has. The ending is one that leaves a lot of open roads, especially from West's perspective.
If this was a stand-alone, I would say the story was left incomplete, but seeing as it's the first in its series this is clearly not the end. All in all, we've got a fantastic mix of humor, romance, friendship, and conflict with an important message touching on the often misplaced blame of online attacks. It's an eye opener, and I hope it opens yours, too!

In this NA you won't find some whiny heroine that mops around for some bad boy and where nothing happens except falling in love at first chapter and then how will they finally hook up together or WHO will tear them apart.
This is a NA that actually tries to show you how world became too much concentrated on sharing everything online. How there is no privacy left, how anybody can put your pic online and there is nothing you can do about it once it's there.
How some pics can ruin your future if you allow it, how it can mark you and online comments actually mentally abuse you. This are real and serious problems that happen everyday. Kids now send their naked pics all the time, allow taking pics during sex and if you stumble on some dickhead Both characters were simply amazing. The girl doesn't fall in love with some bad boy, she actually falls in love with a good guy.
I know what you think, how can he be a good guy She doesn't whine, she tries to get it sorted out as best as she can.
He tries to make a future to take care of his problems as best as he can and whatever it takes to take him there. I recognized slight elements of other popular books but honestly it was so good written that I actually loved it more. The writing style also slightly reminded me a bit of one long ass book I read but honestly I think it was also better. You kinda have a feeling like story is going really fast becuase like the writing is going really fast I know I don't make any sense here. I highlighted more then half of the book.
Both POV's were amazing, but his OMG too good to read. I was swooning, melting, fangirling, falling in love, begging him not to be like that, loving him because he can't endure to be like that. The relationship between characters, even though the chemistry is great, goes pretty slowly. He is helping her to get her mind of shit that happened, even though he has his own shit to take care of, and they actually become friends first, even though they secretly check each other out since they met.
The way their "relationship" progressed slowly I loved every part of it. I loved all the build up, and wondering will he kiss her now, will he fuck up now, will she push him away, will he push her away. And let me tell you something OMG it is amazing! And reading all that from his POV I am dying to read the sequel View all 15 comments. She's an intelligent college student, living an ordinary life.
Until she's not. After breaking up with her boyfriend of 3 years, intimate pictures of her are discovered on the internet. She is humiliated, afraid and her only hope is to disappear into the background. The last thing she needs is to get involved with West Leavitt, notorious bad boy. She attracted to him, but he's dangerous and doesn't fit into her plans. West has other priorities too. He has a comp Caroline Piasecki is a good girl.
He has a complicated family situation and multiple jobs. He does not want any distractions. And he has seen love destroy lives, so is determined not to go down that path. I need something from her, and that's what I have to guard against. The most dangerous thing about her. Because if I need her, she'll hurt me, distract me, maybe even break me into pieces and grind them under her heel. This was a slow-paced read, but I stayed pretty interested. The sexual tension between these two was off the charts HOT.
While at times both characters annoyed me, overall they are both likeable.
Two broken characters struggling to deal with difficult situations, and finding out what is truly important. Looking forward to the next book. View all 27 comments. Jan 30, Jill added it Shelves: Since I read only the sample, I won't rate this. But I'm not inclined to read any more.
As much as I enjoy Ruthie Knox 's adult romances, even she isn't able to entice me to read this new adult romance of hers. I'm not sure which genius decided that new adult books have to be written in first person all.
It makes every single new adult read sound the same. I'm not fond of being i Since I read only the sample, I won't rate this. I'm not fond of being inside a heroine's head.
At any time. But when she gets hit painfully in the nose so that it's bleeding, and she's got the time to rhapsodise about West's eyes And oh, his off-kilter face, eyebrows, nose, smile I think it's time to call it quits.
This may very well have ended up being a great read, but I'm not staying around to find out. Please don't tell me the heroine somehow was a virgin View all 26 comments. Oct 26, Jennifer Kyle rated it liked it Shelves: This book appears to be a 5 Star read or a 3ish star read amongst my friends, so give it a go because the circumstances were relevant to our cyber world and it was a nice slow-building love story.
Both characters attend college and while Caroline holds a lot of a 3. Waiting for him to go further with Caroline took forever and I was bored a lot during the story. West is a well done character with a lot going on and the story does lead for the next book in the series. I did however like their physical connection and felt the author did a fine job with the story overall.

Jan 08, Susan rated it really liked it Shelves: I was…not prepared for this.
But, this book takes you way beyond that. The layers to this story could, in and of themselves, be their own tale. Woven together, they make for an emotion-tugging, thought-provoking, highly entertaining read.
Law School. No room for error. No room for her ex boyfriend to post naked and illicit pictures of her on the internet. West is on a mission — get out of his trailer-park town. Make a life for himself to be able to take care of his little sister. Work 3 jobs and get into med school. Become a doctor. No room for distractions like falling in love with a girl like Caroline…until it happens. I love that, though the attraction immediate, it took them 18 months for their first kiss.
Acquaintances, to friends, to lovers…with a simmering desire all along. He sells drugs, he sells sex for favors, He is angry and violent. Caroline is not just your perfect little girl. She is fierce and learns to fight.
And she learns to really love. He takes accountability for his choices. I did not see the ending of this book coming. I was…confused. I begged it not to happen. I was devastated. I need to know how this plays out. I need more than anything for the is all to be ok. And really…I just need more West. NA fans will love this book. Welcome to NA…Ms York.
So happy to have you! I'm so tempted to give this 5 stars View all 10 comments. Oct 31, Debra rated it really liked it Shelves: Review to come. View all 7 comments. Deeper is the debut novel by Robin York more on that later.
I will admit neither really grabbed my attention, but the fact it was by Robin York again more on that later , I took the gamble and requested a copy through Netgalley. But when you look past all those things, and as the book develops, you see the reasons for the things he has to do, you realize he is a good-guy with the best of intentions who has been stuck with a shitty set of circumstances. It takes place over months, and West for the most part tries to keep it in the friend-zone.
I was rooting for them from the start, and what made me even more emotionally invested in them both as characters is that the book gives you both of their points of view.
This shows just how deeply the both of them are damaged, and the horrendous reasons why, it also shows just how good they are together and what one gives to the other in the way of support on an emotional level.
There are so many things about this book too love, but in equal parts there are so many things that make you pause, and think. It is horrible to think that although it is a work of fiction, what happens to Caroline is in fact something that actually happens in the real world today. The aftermath, and her actions because of it, her friends and most importantly West have made this book without doubt a 5 star read for me.
Now I do have to put in a little side note about Robin York, as although this is her first foray into NA, I have known and love her work under her other name for quite a while. My only frustration, I have to wait until July for Harder, although the cover is up, and Yowyza!!! It was a privilege to be able to read and ARC of this book through Netgalley, and it was my absolute pleasure to provide the above honest review.

This book! Caroline had been dating this squirmy little ass. He convinces her to let him take some porno pics of her. You know the line.. Little turdman gets pissed when they break up and posts them on the internet. Caroline is reeling from it.
She had wanted to be a lawyer or even a judge. C Guess what I did? Can't do that with your name coming up with those pics when that google key is hit.
West steps into the picture.. I'm in frigging love with a book character. This boy. He deals pot, works what seems like 50 jobs, worries about his mom and sister back in the trailer park.
I want him.. My husband is the greatest I can't wait to see where the next book goes. AND I'm not ashamed!!! View all 5 comments. Jan 03, Barbara rated it it was amazing Shelves: Normally NA is not my gender, but I give it a try, because the blur sounds very appealing and I saw also some 5 stars… The characters depth of West and Caroline were breath taking, they felt so real to me, all the angst of a first love, and the past take overtakes all their joy!!
But I love was their swoon, chemistry, tender moments between Caroline and West!! Two word: Pure… bliss … Some moments Did I mention I love West!?!
West is awesome, despite is young age… he is one hell of a MAN!!! Review First, I want to apologize for not connecting with this book. So please, do not go by my opinion on this book. There are so many 5 Star ratings out there, which make me the minority this time. I will end with this though….
Jan 08, Michelle [Helen Geek] rated it really liked it Recommends it for: A nice solid read. April -- Definitely 5 Stars. Third read. I've read some real stinkers, so really appreciate the books that engage me and keep me engaged. Ruthie Knox at her very best. Wish I had more like this. Better the second time, I think. Very good and just what I needed.
There is a second book, so guess that means this will be a series?
Saying this, we do not have a cliffhanger here. Or at least not my definition of a cliffhanger. We do have a complete story. Nothing to fear here. Where do you even start with a book like this? It is an important story. It is about what happens when a relationship ends and the other person wants revenge.
Used to be they'd prank call you and possibly stalk you and rumor you to death. You had concrete actions you could take if it got out of hand. They can ruin you with the click of a button.
This is what happened to Caroline. An amazing story. Frightening in places. However, we all know great subject matter, great characters without the author's voice in it, just doesn't happen. This author, for a debut book, it really amazing. It is so polished, so complete She has a beautiful way with words that draw you wonderful emotional pictures. She can take you immediately to the dark side of emotion and has no problem showing you the wonder and joy. I can't wait to read more of her.
By the end of this book you know these two. You love them and understand them and want them to be okay. You want them to be okay together. But, you know that life has varied paths we take and it can't all be tied up neatly with a bow. This is the message of this story -- sometimes, life gets in the way, other people have to be our priority. It is the "right" thing to do, but real love?
Well, real love, once found, is there. It's all around you; the air you breath, the thoughts you think, the matter making up the mass. It will survive. We also had a great cast of secondary characters. This story really had some depth. We had friends and family that we got to know. I love when a story actually has more depth than the primary two characters. It adds to the MC when you understand them through their interactions with others. She was in a monogamous relationship.
It was a long standing, three  year relationship. Sex happened. Her guy wanted to take some pictures. She wasn't crazy about it, but she loved him. Trusted him. Time happened and she just didn't think she loved him enough. Something was missing and she decided to end it. As simple as that and you have to give her kudo's.
Well, he wasn't happy and the next thing you know, these pictures showed up everywhere. She was sick. Think about it? How easy could this happen to you? What about someone you love?
Recently my nephew [late 30's] said an ex hacked into his FB account and was posting stuff. Social media is now. No stopping it. The author does a very good job of helping the audience understand the horror of this. Also, the powerlessness you feel if actions like this happen to you or someone you love. The most important message is this She trusted him with all she had.
This is how he repaid her trust. This is an important story. The subject matter -- and the simple fact the story is done so well. I hate when a books' marketing "pigeon holes" it. Not fair really. My opinion, I think this is more contemporary literature. It has romance, sure and the the age of the main characters is college age; 20 or so.
The story is well thought out and the wordsmithing is exemplary. Why put it in a "slot"? We have too many people who say they don't like or normally read something blah. There are way too many books out there. Really good books. Seriously too many good ones to select from. Sure, they may not be on this topic. But, once this is published you can bet there will be more.
