So.. I am a hug Mara Jacobs fan. I was a little nervous because the characters in this book are much younger than I. But to be honest after the first few chapters I didn't care. The story is fantastic! I can't wait to read the next two books!

This a cute easy read with likable characters. I love the Worth series and couldn't wait to read this series. I don't think it's as good, maybe because of the age of the characters, but I still enjoyed it and can't wait for the next two in the series.

In Too Deep is a hot, fun, sexy read! Great “New Adult” novel by Mara Jacobs. I love Mara’s contemporary series (Worth the Weight, Worth the Drive, Worth the Fall and so on,) so I was wondering what her New Adult would be like.Well, it's yummy - yes, yummy, and it's really done well. Lily is a freshman at a small private college located between Baltimore and Washington DC. She comes from wealth and falls for a “townie” of course - because let’s face it, we all know how hot a badass townie can be. And really, if that doesn’t have you buying this book yet - trust me on this, In Too Deep is a hot, fun, read. I laughed out loud, definitely got emotional. Didn’t see the end coming, and really liked the chemistry Lily also has with her roommates. Here’s hoping this is the first in a series. .

Sweet Steam Freshman, Lily Spaulding doesn’t believe in love at first sight. Or at least she doesn’t think so till her eyes land on tall, dark, and handsome Lucas Kade while she’s giving swimming lessons in the university pool. Lily is instantly smitten. Lucas is a bit standoffish. Perhaps because of Lily’s lax supervision of her swimming students (Lily is distracted by Lucas’s good looks), or because he doesn’t think an elite college girl like Lily would need of a working-class boy like him. Set at a prestigious fictional college outside DC, Lily is at the school of her father’s choosing and with a roommate of his choosing. She has been raised in a privileged life and followed all the rules, but it’s the local boy from the other side of the tracks that catches her eye. Lucas is the big brother of one of her 6 year old swimming lesson students, Andy. Lucas is not like the other cookie-cutter elite rich boys at school and he comes with some baggage, but Lily only has eyes for him. 21 year old Lucas Kade has some big responsibilities on his shoulders and some mistakes in his past, but even almost 19 year old Lily can see the real person he is. This is a sweet story that moves along at a great pace. I was 40% into it when I realized I hadn’t put it down since I started it. The care-free elements of young adulthood are captured well—riding in cars with “bad boys,” hot dorm room hook-ups, and stolen “heated” moments told via the alternating first person point of views of Lily and Lucas. Typical of his age, Lucas makes some immature dumb moves. There is sufficient drama to keep the pages turning but at the same time the story is free of over-the-top angst, and there is no cheating/no one scheming to keep them apart. The obstacles they encounter are appropriate and realistic to what is going on in their lives and differences in their backgrounds. And yet, while they come from different backgrounds they are both just two young adults trying to make their own (and the right) choices while basically on their own for the first time in their lives. I liked how they didn’t keep secrets from each other; for the most part they were upfront and honest right from the start. There are reveals to the reader along the way—what happened to Andy’s mom? What exactly does Stick’s “self-employed” job entail? Why must Lily “babysit” Jane? And a few other questions that I imagine will be explored in Jane’s book. There is no cliffhanger though. Lucas and Lily’s is a complete story with an HEA. While this first book in the series focuses on Lily and Lucas, we meet Lily’s friends who will be the focus of the future books. Lily’s roommate, Jane is nothing plain, and Lucas’s buddy, Stick, is a colorful character. (I’m rooting for a pairing there despite their overt animosity towards each other.) The supporting characters are interesting and make this story just as much about friendship and loyalty as it is a very sweet and “steamy” romance. All the characters, even with their flaws, are very likable and mature. The book is about making hard choices, learning from your mistakes, but also about believing in love.
