Overview

Nick Hawke wants his car fast and his girls faster. He blows through them quicker than his muscle car races down the drag strip in Collinsville and he wouldn’t have it any other way. He’s determined to avoid the devastation he has watched his father endure in the aftermath of his mother’s abandonment. 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 highs, and one night stands. 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 a night. There’s only one catch––she’s completely immune to him and his smooth talking ways.

Payton Archer is looking for love––the true, mad, deep kind. She’s given up on finding it, at least until she leaves for college because she’s certain that is where she’ll find the ideal guy to fit into her perfect world. Her summer plans include nothing more than three uneventful months of fun but it turns out to be anything but ordinary when Payton meets Nick Hawke, one of Jesse’s old Collinsville friends. She’s shocked by her immediate and intense attraction for “Hawke” because nothing about him is on her checklist for the perfect love. 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. He’s exciting and dangerous but his fast car and chance taking 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 the courage to leave the safe, shallow end of love and risk going under completely?

    Enjoyed!

    Definitely enjoyed, though not as much as the first. She is a lot more stubborn, but turns out ok. Again, characters very real, and i liked that.

    n Going Under we met Claire and got to see how her relationship

    n 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. I received the ARC of Shallow by Georgia Cates from the author for review. The opinions are my own.

    I loved this book:) It was beautifully penned and written as a true teenage story, slang and all. I was pleasantly surprised, not having read Going Under. I didn't know what to expect.

    The main characters in this book were great. I admired Payton's morals that were about as far from Nick's as possible. I loved the relationship that unfolded in a perfect way.

    The author's writing style had a way of pulling you in and keeping the tension alive. I was on pins and needles waiting to see what was going to happen.

    After reading this stellar book from Georgia Cates, I will be going out and getting Going Under stat. I can only hope it's just as good as Shallow. I give this sexy new adult read five glittery stars for being awesome!

    Let me begin by saying what a huge Georgia Cates fan I am. I absolutely fell in love with Jessie Boone in Going Under. Jessie and Claire's story was amazing. Payton Archer is Claire's best friend, and Shallow is Payton and Nick's story, which is amazing. This book is so good. I loved Payton's character in Going Under and was so excited when I found out there was going to be a book about her. She is snarky, outspoken, not easily intimated, and used to getting her way. She is not afraid to say what she thinks, and as a matter of fact, she does that quite often. Nick Hawke is hotness personified. He is another one of those bad boys you can't resist. He's used to getting his way to, he's not used to being told no, especially by a girl, and he has decided he wants Payton. Little does he realize, he has met in match in Payton Archer. Payton has already been warned by Jessie about Nick Hawke. Turns out he is quite the ladies man. Jessie told her, "I don't want you falling for any of his Jedi sex tricks."

    Despite Nick's hotness, Payton has already decided that he is a man-whore and a playah - and there is no way he's getting anywhere near her panties. Nick, however, wants more than getting into Payton's panties, a whole lot more, and he doesn't give up easily. He thinks Payton is the most beautiful girl he's ever seen, and her smart ass attitude and the fact that she isn't afraid to put him in his place, only adds fuel to the fire. Try as she may, Payton can't deny her attraction to Nick any more that she can deny her need to breathe. The chemistry between these two is off the charts. Nick finds himself in a position he never has before, he is actually falling hard for this girl, and she is so not what he expected. He is determined to make her see that he isn't what she thinks he is, and that his intentions are sincere. Payton is falling equally hard for Nick, and he is definitely not what she had in plan for her future. He's from Collinsville, he's tattooed, and his family doesn't come from money. Nevertheless, love always finds a way. These two face opposition on both sides. Payton's parents definitely don't want her around Nick because they don't think he is good enough, and Nick's father doesn't want him with Payton, because he is afraid she'll break his heart, or at least that is the reason he gives. When Nick's past comes back to haunt him, he faces losing the only girl he'll ever love forever, and Payton faces her greatest fear, a broken heart, not to mention some rather unpleasant secrets in her own family. Will these two be able to make it, or is this going to be an epic fail?

    This book ranks up there with my all-time favorites, and one that has made in into that special list called to be read again. I just fell in love with this story and I truly loved everything about it. The characters are great. I was hooked from page one and didn't want to put the book down. The romance was hot and there was plenty of humor, but also a serious side. Payton Archer is one of those characters you will never forget, and Nick Hawke is one of those hotties you dream about. Georgia ends this story so well. I just love epilogues and this book has a great one. Georgia Cates has yet again produced another 5-star read that is outstanding. If you are a lover of contemporary romance, then this is one book you won't want to miss.

    Young adult? Not!

    There wasn't much story line but there is a lot of explicit scenes that leave little to the imagination. Very disappointing, will probably not read future books.
