Shallow Blog Tour!! A Review of Shallow by Georgia Cates





Genre: Young Adult (Contemporary Romance/Mature Situations)
Published: September 21, 2012
Publisher: Self

The Blurb:
Payton Archer's best friend, Claire, strives to be perfect in every way. Payton doesn't and this is her story.

Nick Hawke likes his car fast and his girls even faster. He blows through females quicker than his muscle car races down the "The Strip" in Collinsville and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Determined to avoid the devastation he has watched his father endure in the aftermath of his mother leaving, he believes there is no room in his life or his heart for a relationship lasting more than one night. He seeks happiness in things that won’t let him down...fast cars, adrenaline and one night stands. To his absolute dismay, all of that changes when he unexpectedly runs into an old friend and is introduced to Payton Archer, the first girl he ever wanted for more than one night. There’s only one catch...she is completely immune to him and his smooth talking ways.

Payton Archer is looking for what Claire has with Jessie, but she has given up on finding it...at least until she leaves for college in the Fall because she is certain that is where she will find the perfect guy to fit into her perfect world. She plans on Summer being nothing but three uneventful months of fun, but it turns out to be anything but ordinary when Payton is introduced to Nick Hawke, one of Jessie’s old Collinsville friends. She is shocked by her immediate and intense attraction for “Hawke” because nothing about him is what Payton is looking for. Sure, he’s hot and sexy but he comes from Collinsville and that is definitely not on her list of prerequisites. Everything about him makes Payton’s heart speed because he is exciting and dangerous, but his fast car and the dangerous chances he takes aren't what scares Payton the most...it’s the way Nick Hawke makes her feel every time he looks at her. Can Payton find that moment of total fearlessness and make the decision to leave the safe, shallow end of love to risk going under completely?

 
My Review:
Shallow is the second book in the Going Under Series by Georgia Cates. In Going Under we met Claire and got to see how her relationship with Jessie came about. Now, in Shallow we get to know Clare's best friend, Payton, better. Payton is a sarcastic little spitfire. She doesn't take crap from anybody, and she's certainly not going to take it from Nick Hawke no matter how hot he is or makes her feel. All the bantering and sarcasm made Shallow a lot of fun to read. I already fell in love with Claire and Jessie, so having them as supporting characters was a nice change because you get glimpses of how their relationship progresses as well.We need to keep our eye out for this author. I'm excited to dive into her other books! Haven't read this series yet? Check out my review of Going Under!
