Review From User :
I absolutely LOVED this book!
I have to say I was not expecting to love it as much as I did.
"Into The Deep" is surely going to be another hit for Samantha Young!!
There are so many characters that I loved and am hoping they get their own stories (Beck, Claud, Lowe, and Matt)
Ok but this story is about Charley and Jake!
Loved them both and their chemistry was fantastic!!!!
Their love began at the tender age of 16.
Charley is beautiful, funny, and has a sharp wit.
What I loved about her was that she was just an amazing person but also was unaware of how beautiful she was.
She was a very strong and vibrant young girl.
Then the new boy comes to town, Jake.
His reputation develops quickly in the small town of Lanton.
Jake is super hot and has girls all over town swooning over him.
The instant the two meet, the connection between them is pretty hot!!!
They fall hard for each other.
They make promises to each other, that they probably shouldn't have, being that they were so young.
Something horrific happens that causes the two to go their separate ways and the light that once shone brightly in Charley is dimmed.
"From the moment we'd met, he'd dragged me into the deep, swearing to me he was in there for me. It was a lie. He'd waded back out to the shallows and left me to drown. Worse, he'd found a new deep elsewhere with some other girl."
Four years go by and the two cross paths again in Scotland during their study year abroad.
Painful and angst ridden is this time.
I felt so bad for Charley.
To see the one great love of your life with someone else has to make you feel like your heart's been ripped out of your chest.
However, their chemistry and deep feelings are undeniable.
Anyhow, this was truly a fabulous story and had my stomach in knots over the angst.
I can't wait to read the next book!!! Sucks we have to wait till 2014!!
5 Stars!!!!!! :)
Live young. Live hard. Love deep.
Charley Redford was just an ordinary girl until Jake Caplin moved to her small town in Indiana and convinced her she was extraordinary. Almost from day one Jake pulled Charley into the deep and promised he was right there with her. But when a tragic incident darkened Jake’s life he waded out into the shallows and left Charley behind.
Almost four years later Charley thinks she’s moved on. That is until she takes a study year abroad in Edinburgh and bumps into none other than Jake Caplin at a party with his new girlfriend. The bad-boy-turned-good attempts to convince Charley to forgive him, and as her best friend starts spending time with Jake’s, Charley calls a truce, only to find herself tumbling back into a friendship with him.
As they grow closer, the spark between them flares and begins playing havoc with their lives and relationships. When jealousy and longing rear their destructive heads, Charley and Jake struggle to come to grips with what they mean to one another.
And even if they work it out, there is no guarantee Charley will ever trust Jake to lead her back into the deep…
