Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author of Into the Deep

LIVE YOUNG. LIVE HARD. LOVE DEEP.
Charley and Jake�s story concludes in Out of the Shallows�

Somehow, after everything they�ve been through, Jake Caplin and Charley Redford made their way back to one another. But finding each other and staying together are two completely different things.

When Charley�s world is flipped upside down, she begins to question the choices and decisions she�s made since her arrival in Edinburgh, and in an effort to grip onto what she holds most dear she believes she must sacrifice her love for Jake.

Returning to the States for her senior year, Charley struggles to find peace and happiness. While everyone else seems to be finding themselves in college, Charley is terrified that, along with almost everything else that�s important to her, she�s lost herself.

While friends and family deal with their own tumultuous lives, there is one person resolved to uncover the reason behind Charley�s sudden defection and unhappiness. Refusing to give up without a fight, Jake believes he is the only one who can truly understand what Charley is going through, and this time he�s determined to prove he�s there for her no matter what obstacles are thrown in their way.

However, as Charley strives through the biggest personal journey of her life thus far, there is no guarantee that the woman she is becoming will still need Jake as much as the girl she once was did�

Not as good as the first one. There was simply too much angst and teenage drama to make the reading enjoyable. Jake may have been an a$$ in the first half of the previous book, but here he redeemed himself and some more. He deserved a medal for patience and forgiveness. My God, what she put him through. I honestly could not stand her. Chapter after chapter stretching the hurt because of her stupid and immature actions. Please, grow up. I just did not find her excuses relatable or justified, even for a 21 year old. As if this was not enough, the author overdramatized the scenes even more. It really left me unsettled. And she kept going back and forth from the present to a past that was just a few months past, making it really confusing. I had high hopes for the epilogue, which could have been used to compensate for all the drama, but it was short and unfullfilling. It left the story somehow incomplete. I imagine the author was sicken tired of all the drama as well and could not wait to end it. Such a disappointment.

I do like this Author,but by the end of this little series I was so pissed that I wasted my time reading it. I wanted to smack Charley so many times. I found her stupid and immature. Jake wasn't much better ,but in this book he seemed to grow up a little. I felt really annoyed after reading it.

I couldn't wait for this to be released, but have to agree with some of the others who read it, there was a bit too much angst. Charlie was trying to please everyone but herself. Her dad was too controlling to start with, then all that happened to her sister....which Charlie felt responsible for. Too much back and forth, I couldn't keep track of what the country or year. Oh well.....I still enjoyed it!

This epic romance is an epic failure! The author apparently.has no faith in God since Charley's sister, told her not to hold herself to her promise to God as she did not believe in Him because she felt He made her life so unbearable! PLEASE ENOUGH! This 2 book story is filled with so much unnecessary drama it just became one of those books you want to end so you can stop feeling angry and frustrated at all the juvenile behavior displayed over and over again! I am seriously considering deleting both books from my nook, will not buy any of her books EVER! :-(

I read this series only after finishing Dublin Street series and Hero... the back and forth (especially in book 2) was confusing. This book lacked the GOOD drama that her other books nailed. It was a chore finishing the series. The closure was seriously lacking! Not a book I would recommend!

I loved this series!!! I read them back-to-back, which I definitely recommend. This book picks up right where Into the Deep left off..... It's written in the same format, back and forth between time frames, except this book was a 6 month period...got a little confusing at some parts. But overall, a fantastic series. Loved the characters....I wish she would write Cauld & Beck's story. I would definitely read again.

~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog OUT OF THE SHALLOWS, the second in the Into the Deep series must be read after the first book in the series. Young doesn’t waste time rehashing over previous events, but dives straight into the action, picking up somewhere where the last book ended off (you’ll see what I mean when you read it) and dealing with the consequences of the actions that Jake and Charley have made. As you will know if you’ve read the first book in the series, the romance between Jake and Charley is complicated. They have been torn apart before but those feelings still linger. In this book, Young once again employs the technique of jumping forward and backward in time with each chapter. While this took awhile for me to get used to and worked in the first book, I felt that it was a little harder to fall in line with it in this book. I think this is mainly because in the first book, there’s a big different between the events from when Jake and Charley were younger and what was happening now. With this book, the events that were taking place weren’t occurring too far apart. Just when I was hooked on a scene and wanted more, it switched back to the past and as a result, it stalled the pacing of the book a little bit. OUT OF THE SHALLOWS has some major things happening in it that concern the secondary characters. I was very interested in Beck’s character particularly. Young spends quite a lot of time building up Beck’s character and Claudia so I’m wondering if she’ll do a spin off or perhaps continue the series with their story if that works out. And what about Lowe? He was another character that sparked a lot of interest. I wouldn’t mind reading more about his character either. Jake and Charley have their own issues they need to sort out. Like I said, the cuts between the chapters can make it hard to keep track of the sequences of events, but if you’ve read the first book, then it should make more sense that way. I love Jake. I find that although he makes his mistakes, he is more than willing to make up for them. One other thing that was interesting was Charley’s relationship with her family. It becomes a major conflict in this story and since Charley’s father doesn’t like Jake, he has more than one person he has to convince if he wants to be with Charley. The sex scenes are always very steamy when Samantha Young pens them. But I thought that the author seemed more comfortable with the scenes in this book. All the sex scenes seemed to come organically and didn’t come across as forced. It was sexy without be contrived and I think that makes a huge difference in the romance between Jake and Charley as well. OUT OF THE SHALLOWS concludes Jake and Charley’s romance in a satisfying way. Yet there is more than one avenue open for Samantha Young has yet to explore. I’m hoping for stories for Claud, Lowe or Beck in the future because Young pens such charismatic and endearing characters that readers can’t help but fall in love with every time. *ARC provided by author”

Not quite as good as the first book but it was still good! :)

I thought the drawn out attempts at over dramatization were not necessary. I enjoyed the first book much more. I still love all of Samantha Young's other books I have read so far... Just not this one so much :(

'Out of the Shallows' was a decent book, but I feel as though the author got bored and decided to cut off the story... I wosh there was more to read. Im a little disappointed.

Would have liked to read more about jake and charley being happy at the end.

I did enjoy reading more about Charlie and Jake. It was frustrating at times, however, to read through the decisions Charley makes during the book. I really enjoy this author and have read all of her books since On Dublin Street. I did feel this book was a little rushed at the end. I would have liked to have seen their lives a bit more into the future. Perhaps there will be another book in this series?
