Into The Deep by Samantha Young


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…

What I Think

I had mixed feelings about this book, at first i was not going to finish reading it as it gave me whiplash with the chopping and changing but saying that im glad that i stick it out, even though it still gives you whiplash it is a must have for the storyline (i know that is crazy but it is.) So if you can put up with the changing all the time then yeah read it because it is a good story.

For the characters well i dont know what to say. Charley well she is stuck in the past she cant get past her ex. really she is so (Trying to call her something nice but it is hard) Dumb might be the nicest i can call her no really read it and see for or self.

Jake he is charming in the past but a dick in the present no really, who would be friends with their ex and going out with them in a group, hangout and all, as well as have your new girlfriend there with you, prick tease i think.

I was hoping this was as good as the last Samantha Young books i have read but i was let down :(, it doesnt put me off Samantha. I will be review the next book in the series just have to have a break from it and read something else first. i do give this book a 2 book readers rating as it is a good story i think i'm a bit picky lately.
