This book is fantastic, I got really attached. The writing was great and I couldn't even force myself to put it down! This book made me smile, laugh, and nearly cry. Brilliant character development, and the horror aspect was pretty scary. I cannot wait to read the second book! :)

I bought this book out of impulse after reading the description & i am so glad i did! It is a beautiful book that i read in a few hours. It felt short & definately left me wanting more.

The Deepest Cut is an amazingly beautiful love story. J.A Templeton's writing is truly beautiful. The tenderness Templeton shows between Riley and Ian made my heart fall in love with them. Riley and Ian's love had me crying, hoping, and longing that they would find a way to be together. Templeton has a gift for writing heart-melting love. Riley and Ian broke my heart with their love that could never be.
Riley lost her mother in a car crash, and Riley feels responsible for her mom's death. The guilt is too much for Riley to carry, so she finds a way to let the pain out. But the way Riley has chosen to deal with pain is a secret that she has to hide. When Riley moves to Scotland, it's kind of hard to hide this secret from a ghost, but Ian is not your average creepy ghost. Ian's nineteen, gorgeous, and has been cursed to the lands where Riley now lives. Riley and Ian find strength in each other. Riley never thought that her best friend and the love of her life would be a ghost. And because of her gift, she knows she the only one that can end Ian's curse and he finally crosses over. This will become Riley's deepest pain, letting go of a love she knows she will never have again.
Riley and Ian's love will make you feel every tender moment between them. Every heart break, but also the power of love that can heal the deepest cut. I highly recommend The Deepest Cut as a must read and I love the beautiful cover.

At least the ghost was cute. Way to trivialize self-mutilation. What an annoying heroine! This reminded me of Dark Shadows--and not in a good way.

Riley loses her mother and now sees ghosts but not the ghost of her mother. Riley has another problem se cuts herfelf when shes upset. Her father moves the family to scotland and she meets Ian a ghost from the 1780'S. Ian comes wiyh baggage in the form of a crajzy ghost who killed and cursed Ian. Love and loss is a perfect paranormal romance combo.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I loved this book as much as i loved the characters. I've read it so many times and i recomend it to everyone. I never once thought the characters were too much of something or too less, they were just right.

I was completely involved with the story line & the characters from the first page, not wanting to put the book down. I soon became disappointed that the book skipped too quickly over Ian & Riley's relationship, their love story!! The reason I chose to read the book in the first place. I felt the book spent too much time on Laria's character. Very repetitive. I read the full series because I felt I owed it to the characters. I would recommend the book but it's definitely geared for teenagers.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Oh. My. Goodness.
I absolutely love this book! I couldn't put it down and stayed up way past my bedtime to read just one more chapter. I feel in love with Ian, like many others, and wish he was my own knight in shining armor. I had force back tears at the end of this book and remind my self I was in a public place. This book had me smiling, laughing, crying, and on the edge of my seat. I love the way this book is written and the storyline. I would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat although there was some unnecessary language at times. Hope this helped.
Love you Ian!!!!! <3

Raise your hand if you have a thing for a hot guy with a scottish accent? *Raises both hands HIGH*
If someone had told me earlier that the guys is scottish, I would read this book first, no questions ask.
As you can tell, I loved the plot. A girl moving to anew town, meeting a hottie and getting quickly subdued to solving a life long mystery. I admired this plot. It's paced well plus it brings some good back history to the characters. With each past of theirs revealed, it's a onion pulling back the layers one by one till you've seen it all. The plot places the reader in a world of mystery and murder. You just have to fine the murder first before they get you!
There is an enduring friendship turned love. I really liked this part. I didn't think it happen but it did. It's once love that started but the reader knew it just couldn't happen and that's what sucks! I wanted it to work soooo bad! They be perfect for each other. Nevertheless, those few precious moments they had in loving each other the only way that they can, I emerged myself more into it knowing that it be over soon.
The ending is touching. It's is bittersweet, yet you know it's not the end, it's only the beginning. I can't wait to read the rest of the books.
The Deepest Cut, cuts the reader deep in their heart. It's exciting to see the plot race forward once you are in the characters shoes. The thrilling events with each chapter keep the reader locked in their seat, eyes never straying off the page. Utterly amazing, The Deepest Cut is a rush!

I was honored when Julia Templeton asked me to review The Deepest Cut, it combines the factors of contemp that I love, the tough issues (Riley's mom dying and her guilt at being in the car with her, and the cutting) right with the paranormal aspects that I love. The paranormal, the ghosts one woven into a love story and the other downright evil and creepy are very well written.
I flew through this book. The characters grabbed and held my interest, the plot is fast moving always having me wonder what would happen next while still processing what just happened, and the emotions are so well written.
Riley is easy to relate to, and her pain jumps off the page. I also really admire her love for her dad and her brother. Her brother Shane is balanced between a good friend and awesome brother with just enough annoying to make it believable.
Ian really is swoon worthy and I love how dogged he was at first with her to get and keep her attention. He got mine too. The backstory with Laria is good, and I was always wondering what it was just below the surface and what it would finally take to deal with her.
And I totally wasn't expecting the ending, I can't wait to get my hands on the next one to find out how this all ties together and what happens with Riley.
