Synopsis: 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.

5 epic kissy UST filled stars Whoa. I’m not sure where to start. The insanely amazing kissing scenes or my heart at the end…welp.
You can read the synopsis for an idea of what the story is about. We get to the crisis right away, but we also live through the shame and pain that Caroline goes through, and how West gives her a place to just be herself. No judging. From there they become non-friends (lol, I loved the denial!). But just when Caroline thinks she can move ahead, West’s demons drag him down. As I read this I was constantly cheering for them to overcome every obstacle. There’s still a road ahead of them, but I know (I need to know) that they can do it. You won’t want to put the book down because you want to turn the page and see if it’s getting better (or kissier, see next paragraph).
The romance, well I have always said I liked UST and that slow build up, and yep, I certainly had to work for it in this book. But I’m not talking about getting right to the “deed”. I’m talking about just getting to a touch, A KISS. A dry kiss at that. But man, when we got to the kissing —> Ms. York really Got. To. The. Kissing. Like pages of it. Delicious, warm, hot, crazy kissing. You need to read this book just for the kissing. I’m pretty sure that Deeper gets the award for best kissing in a book ever. Yes, ever. 50 minutes will never be the same again.
The ending. I got it, I really did. But that didn’t make it any easier when I got all choked up. For the love of all things romantic, please, please, please let there be happiness in the next book. We, I mean Caroline and West, are so close!
Would I rec this? HELL YES. Kissing, UST, sexy times, heartbreak, brooding guys, strong women. It’s all there and it’s divine.
