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.

Stop whatever you're doing and read this book * Christina Lauren, author of the Beautiful Bastard series * Gripping, emotional and very sensual . . . With complex and relatable characters, Deeper is one part cautionary fable and one part love story - all woven into a gripping plot. The sequel can't come soon enough! * RT Book Reviews * York wraps a heart-stoppingly beautiful love story around a life-shattering problem and shows the strength of spirit of a young woman who grows up stronger for her broken places. Deeper will haunt you long after you turn the final page and lives up to the promise of the genre tag new adult, delivering a rich tale about college-age protagonists facing very real problems that will impact their lives into the future.

Deeper is a gripping and addictive novel with an important storyline and real, raw emotion * Reading in the Sunshine * The whole New Adult craze pretty much past me by, happening when I was forced to take a break from reading and blogging for a while. To be honest, I wasn't all that desperate to get on the bandwagon . . . Damn, am I glad I did. I really, really loved this book . . . * Cosy Books * Deeper is such a beautiful, beautiful story! . . . I've no idea what I'm going to do until Harder, the second book in the series, comes out. I didn't want the story to end, I love these two together!
