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 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 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’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

Georgia Cates does it again! I mean holy hell I loved Jessie, but I have to absolutely admit that I definitely love Nick a little more! Shhhh don’t tell Jessie that ;) So Shallow is book number 2 in The Going Under Series, and for some reason I’m thinking Dallas is going to have her own story next. Anyways so if you read Going Under, you know it’s about Jessie and Claire, well Payton is Claire’s best friend.  So Payton is driving Claire and Jessie to a race that their friend Dane is competing in when Jessie tells the girls not to fall for Nick Hawke’s “Jedi Sex Tricks” well this causes Payton to lose her attention and run into the car in front of her. The guy says he won’t sue if she agrees to spend one night with him, and then makes another wager on the race. Come to find out that he is Nick Hawke, the other competitor who doesn’t lose.

Nick Hawke, has a history, and not the greatest track record with girls. He has some abandonment issues which fuel his reason to have sex with no strings attached. That is until he meets Payton. There was something about her that kept drawing him to her. He wants to date her, and well Payton just got hurt so she’s totally stand offish with him. He finally manages to get her to agree to dating…

Now that he has her attention is he able to keep it? Coming from two different worlds, with parents both not wanting them to see each other, will they overcome it? Will Payton finally find the truly, madly, deeply, that she envies from Claire and Jessie’s relationship? You have to buy the book to find out! Oh and the epilogue is absolutely perfect!! 


So I loved Going Deep by Georgia Cates....and Shallow was Just a Good!  I love Payton! She is like..... a version of me!! Without the rich mean parents. Payton has had her heart broken and has vowed not to trust another guy again.  Jessie and Claire (From Going Under) introduce Payton to Nick Hawke.  She is told he is a player and a bad boy! She pretty much wants to stay away from him, well till she hits his car.  OOOPPS. 

Nick goes from one chick to the next, just getting his fill.  Then he meet Payton.  He loves something about her from first sight and wants to try and date her, if ONLY he can convince her of that.  Through a series of get togethers they give it a go.  But can something from his past be the end for them?  Read to find out.  I can't say much..... I will give it all away! :)
