    Chic Lit with some Suspense!

    Going Under by Georgia Cates is definitely Young Adult Chic Lit, which I happen to love so, I loved this story. I always enjoy sarcastic bantering between the love interest, and this book provided that without going overboard. Jessie is the cool, secretive bad boy. Claire is the popular cheerleader. Jessie and Claire's characters grew into their own and matured as the plot progressed.Their relationship definitely didn't have an easy start, nor did it remain easy. Georgia Cates knows how to get her readers involved in the lives of her characters, and it was easy to lose yourself while reading. Going Under was entertaining and fun, with some suspense thrown in the mix. Chic Lit and Young Adult fans alike will enjoy this book. I received Going Under by Georgia Cates from the author for review. The opinions are my own.

    Lots of drama and romance - breezed right though this great book

    Lots of drama and romance - breezed right though this great book! Jessie grew up on the rough side of town, but now he's starting a new year at a high school where some of the more privileged kids go. He's a great football player and ends up being an excellent addition to the team. The former starting quarterback, Forbes, who Jessie replaces, does not make it easy for him. Jessie retaliates by egging Forbes on and even makes him jealous by trying to flirt with Claire - Forbes' girlfriend. Claire is irritated by Jessie at first, but it's hard for her to deny her attraction to him. What started out as Jessie trying to get back at Forbes, and Claire getting back at Jessie for using her to make Forbes jealous, ends up being a lot more when they can no longer ignore the chemistry between them. Their relationship doesn't come easy though because of both Jessie's rocky home life and Claire's family.

    Loved the characters - I was rooting for Jessie and Claire throughout it all. Claire really was down-to-earth and had an interesting background, even though at first glance some might see her as just some rich girl. Jessie really is a great guy that you get to meet underneath that bad boy layer. Claire's best friend, Payton, is so blunt and it's just hilarious. Currently, there's a poll on Georgia Cates' webpage asking if Payton should have her own book - "Yes, totally" is my vote! The story had an excellent bit of both drama and romance, which totally had me captivated and reading the book in two sittings. Also, you gotta love those twists that you don't see coming!
