As you may know, Into the Deep by Samantha Young is one of My Favourite Books ever. It is a truly unforgettable and deeply moving story of. Editorial Reviews. Review. Reviews for Into the Deep: "This is possibly one of the most addictive books I have ever hadthe pleasure of reading Epic.
That should have been my first sign — I write about guys like him for a living. Writing romance novels comes with its perks, but Ethan Rochester enters my life and rearranges my preconceived notions about writing what inspires you.
When the two are thrown together as part of a challenge, Sam sees the chance to win her back. As their passion heats up, will it be enough to knock down the emotional wall between them? Hallmark movie fans will love this sweet contemporary romance with a touch of magical realism. Rather than idly lingering on Earth, she focuses on finding her killer. Uncovering the truth means asking for help from her psychic ex-boyfriend. High in the Rockies, she feels secure, especially when love begins to bloom with the local veterinarian, Rick.
What happens when her past catches up with her? Will she find answers or simply more questions? How far will she go to fulfill her kinky, taboo fantasies with a younger man? I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen to these two. Overall, I highly recommend this read to anyone who enjoys a second chance romance with a heavy dose of passion and angst. I can't really classify the read as having a love triangle.
I feel it is pretty obvious who Jake wants to be with. I would have loved for more finality to their story in this read. Alas, we have a happy for now ending. I look forward to continuing the journey with Jake and Charley in the next book. Perhaps Jake can make amends and Charley can let herself once again be free.

Unfortunately, something happens and Jake shuts down and shuts Charley out of his life. Now it's four years later and they are both in Edinburgh where they both wanted to go to study abroad.
Adding to the problems, Jake brought his new girlfriend along. Wow Wow Wow It's always so amazing when a book just grips you right from the beginning and thi Jake and Charley had a love that lasts forever and even though they are young, everyone could tell that just by looking at them. It's always so amazing when a book just grips you right from the beginning and this one sucked me right in.
I could not put it down! Charley is such a character She's known for being a smart-ass and her nickname is Supergirl I love the reason behind that. But she's guarded and you really can't blame her. When Charley first meets Jacob, he has a reputation for being a manwhore. She gets him out of that but after things hit the fan, he reverts to his old ways, that is, until he gets together with his current girlfriend, Melissa.
Jake is a great guy and he just gets Charley. You can definitely tell they are both not over each other but they have several land mines to maneuver around to come to any clarity. The book is told in the past and the present in alternating chapters for a while.
It really helped you understand what in the heck happened. Jake and Charley have a lot of great friends and great families. I especially liked Beck and Claudia and would love to have a story about them! And don't even get me started on Lowe! I just love Jake and Charley together and it was wonderful how sweet and gentle he was with her. Naturally, there's a lot of drama not only about Charley and Jake's past but with his girlfriend. It was hard for Charley having to deal with that but I loved how jealous Jake got when Charley was with anyone.
It was really interesting to see if Jake and Charley could make things work. Some serious things happened and they have a lot to work through. The book ends in a good place but there's still a lot to do and the blurb for the next book, Out of the Shallows , makes me nervous.
Thankfully, we don't have to wait much longer! I just love Samantha Young and if you're a fan, you will enjoy this series especially if you like a lot of angst and heartbreak. Favorite quotes: You got all the power. I used to think there was nothing prettier than looking up at the stars. That feeling I got, like I was part of something bigger than anything I could ever imagine.
All I can do is attempt to make up for it. Whatever your answer is, just know that I will always believe that, and I will always believe in you. Please try because every time I look into your face, all I feel is … so in love with you.

It's just These two had one epic romance till a horrible event took place that crushed Jake and in turn, he "I let myself be convinced that all my memories of our relationship were somehow blown out of proportion, that I'd only imagined the intense connection between us. These two had one epic romance till a horrible event took place that crushed Jake and in turn, he shattered Charley's heart. In the present, their paths cross again in Edinburgh while attending a study abroad program.
My favorite character is definitely our main character, Supergirl - Charley. She is fantastic female lead. The cast of supporting characters were also well done and fun to read. I just loved Lowe and Beck and I'm excited about more of these two in the next book. Can Charley forgive Jake for breaking her heart fours years ago? Can she be civil while in the company of his new girlfriend and love of his life Melissa?
Is forgiveness enough for Jake or is his first love - the one? This story ends with a "to be continued" and a scene in Jake's pov. I found the book to be a good read and I'll be anxiously awaiting - Out of the Shadows "Despite his declaration of love and my silence on the matter, I realized that deep down, I was worried I was always going to be that little bit more in love with Jake than he'd ever be with me.
That didn't sit well. Not at all. View all 32 comments. A second-chance-at-love story always tugs at my heartstrings. Not only did Into the Deep tug at my heart strings it settled in and gave my heart a great big crushing squeeze! It was filled with painful longing, lusty attraction, and a once-in-a-lifetime-love. Charley and Jake fell into love while they were both sixteen. They were very young, but sometimes life works out like that.
Three and a half years later Charley has moved on as best as she could and is fulfilling her goal of studying abroad. Shock, pain, and disbelief strike Charley when she finds Jake also attending school there, as well, with a girlfriend in tow! Avoiding him and his girlfriend is near impossible as all of their friends hang out together. Their mutual attraction and deep connection comes through loud and clear to everyone around, causing drama and angst. The story alternates chapters flashing back to the past, and then going back to the future, revealing slowly what went wrong with Charley and Jake.
Not only did he just leave things, he goes out to school where he knows Charley will be attending and gets a girlfriend!! Not okay with me Jake! You know this can only last for so long before things explode. This will largely depend on how steadfast he is, where he lays his priorities, and how he handles Melissa.
Their chemistry, steam, and attraction are felt profoundly throughout the story!! Samantha Young always manages to suck me in with her addictive and brilliant writing, making me feel a whole range of emotions: Please try because every time I look into your face, all I feel is…so in love with you.
Thank you!! View all 34 comments. Aug 13, Catarina rated it really liked it Shelves: Charley and Jake were boyfriends in high-school. But not just young lovers, they had that kind of love so strong that everyone was certain that they would be forever. She is left broken with 4. She is left broken with never really recover from it. He never tried to reach her again. When she takes a year abroad in Edinburgh, on the third year of college, he is the first person she sees… with his girlfriend.
Not to mention that is very hard for her to be around him and her girlfriend. This was a really great reading. I can turn this into a series!! If it was a stand alone with a few chapters longer and a nice epilogue and this would have been perfect. View all 27 comments.
May 23, Patrycja rated it liked it Shelves: I was expecting mind blownig new adult novel that would stand equally with On Dublin Street or my favorite book by Samantha Young Slumber. Unfortunately I got short but entertaining read, that lacked deeper emotions or uniqueness.
Especially because of the abrupt ending. It was like someone just cut off the rest of the story in usual moment without making it a cliffhanger and wrote To be continued. I was like what the hell? Changing stand alone novel into series? And setting release date in ?
Big no from me. Both of them decided to go for a year to Scotland to enjoy living in a forgein country. So when she sees the man who broke her heart when she was only seventeen things go a little down hill.
Charley will have to face seeing him and his new girlfriend every day. The best in this book, was Charley, main character. From fanatsic Supergirl nickname to a dream of being a cop Charley stole my heart.
She's one of the very few girls I have book crush on. Jake was not bad character either, handsome heartbreaker is always sexy. Overall, Into The Deep is not bad book, it's enjoyable and sweet, but it lacked of something deeper that could put this book in my favorite shelf. I suppose I my high expectations made this book look poorer in my eyes.
Still I would highly recommend this book for a person who is not looking for outstanding book, but a great entertaiment. For those of you that want to read something better I recommend Slumber one of my favorite books by Samantha Young ; View all 14 comments.
May 26, I had high hopes for this 2nd chance type of romance especially from Samantha Young. It started out strong and kind of dwindle after that. I had several issues with the book. He was trying to have the best of both worlds. He totally played both girls. Charley seemed weak to me. She just stood there and let Jake trample all over her emotions. I wished she ended up with Lowe instead. View 1 comment. May 23, AJ rated it really liked it Shelves: I was lucky enough to find that place, when I was sixteen years old.
By the end of chapter 1, I was completely sucked in, and the end of chapter 2, I was in love. Charley is a 20 year old American student who has just arrived in Edinburgh with her best friend, Claudia, to study abroad for a year. Her world is rocked when she attends a party and her past comes screaming into her present when she sees the boy she loved and lost four years ago, Jake. I noted the way he tensed, my fingers trembling around my beer bottle.
His eyes shot up from his group and tore through the crowd across the room. His chest jerked as his gaze collided with mine and his arm fell away from the girl cuddled into him. His lips parted as shock slackened his handsome features and I watched him mouth my name.
Everyone disappeared around me as we locked eyes for the first time in years. The music dulled to a throb, the conversation to a muffled buzz, and all I could hear was my heartbeat.
Jake has a swoony arrogance about him, and Charley is confident, and funny, and they have some epic banter! I love them both, they are absolutely perfect together! This is a great bunch of characters! They all get involved in the unfolding drama, and some of the conversations are classic!
With so much between Charley and Jake in the past, I loved watching them trying to relate to each other in the present. Things are initially very strained as she is still very angry, and he is wracked with guilt and regret. But, it is obvious to all that they still have intense feelings for each other.
And, just to complicate things further, Jake now has a girlfriend, which brings a whole new range of emotions into the picture. They manage to develop a tentative friendship, and as they sort through their past, and struggle with their feelings in the present, you feel every little glance, every little spark between them as it becomes harder for them to hide the truth of what is still between them. And the emotion is beautifully written! This is a very minor spoiler, I've blocked it for those who don't want to know the direction the book takes, but if you don't mind that, feel free to look because it's pretty freaking epic!!
I thought this was really cleverly done, and loved watching it all unfold. I was completely mesmerized! She manages to combine laugh out loud humour with beautiful romance, heartbreaking drama, sexy time and lots of swoony moments. And it all has an element of reality about it. You could imagine it all happening exactly as she writes it! I loved it — 4. View all 20 comments. View all 12 comments. May 24, Zizz rated it it was amazing.
Samantha Young doesn't write earth-shattering stories nor are they very unique. She also doesn't have a way with beautiful, insightful prose as much as Tammara Webber, Gayle Forman and Tarryn Fisher etc are capable of It is not only well-paced but perfectly-paced with the right amount of drama mixed with a heav Samantha Young doesn't write earth-shattering stories nor are they very unique.
It is not only well-paced but perfectly-paced with the right amount of drama mixed with a heavy yet tolerable dose of angst. It sucks you in. And boy was I caught up. I was so hooked that I had to finish this book - at 4AM. Samantha Young has perfected the art of creating the strong heroine. She is a lovable smartass. There is such strength in her character that she can easily rein in her emotions. Jake had his work cut out for him. It's the age-old story of the bad boy falling for the girl who makes him work for it for the first time in his life.
The sparks were instantaneous and the banter, in true Samantha Young style, was so entertaining. So was that. You're very good at the flirting thing. Very confident for your age. I've never really had to wor-" "Work at it Confident or arrogant? I know I'm pretty smart. I'm awesome.
Jake and Charley's story is reminiscent of real-life couples who met at 16, fell in love and lived happily ever after. There was something in the subtle storytelling minus the usual unnecessary dramas that somehow made their story feel so authentic to me. I was only sixteen, so I hadn't been looking for it, but now that I had it, I realized it was something I guessed we all looked for in our whole lives I was lucky enough to find that place when I was sixteen years old.
It was carved deep in Jake There was no place for the Caplins. Until everything comes to a head and a tragedy leaves Jake a mess. He leaves Charley behind heartbroken. What was once beautiful was reduced to a very ugly history. And as a double whammy, Charley is left without any closure. Fast forward to 4 years later, Charley is in Edinburgh on a study abroad program for a year. This was always her plan - a plan Jake was fully aware of. Imagine her surprise when Jake showed up in the same program - with a new girlfriend in tow.
From the moment we'd met, he'd dragged me into the deep, swearing to me he was in there with me. And so they once again fall into an easy friendship - albeit laden with heavy tension and chemistry.
And strong feelings resurface - apparently they were merely buried not gone. Because I fully bought that what Jake and Charley once shared was worthy of a forever helped me accept them in the present scenario. Because I had issues with these characters in the present-time. I'm still torn about him and to be honest, I'm leaning towards cementing my viewpoint of him as an ass.
I fully understand how the tragedy messed up his head and his need to go away. But to come to a place where he knew Charley would be We do get his explanation and even a bonus POV from him later in the book. Not that it changed my opinion of him. In fact, I think it made it worse So let me get this straight: He realizes he's still in love with Charley 2.
BUT he thinks he has no hope with her. She gives nothing away and seems to have moved on. So he keeps his girlfriend around 4. BUT behind Melissa's back, he tries to spend as much time as possible with Charley in the guise of rebuilding their friendship. And the minute he gets a sign that perhaps all is not lost with Charley, he breaks up with Melissa to pursue Charley. One of the amazing side characters in this book, says it best He can't have you both and needs to wake the fuck up and see that.
But it got to a point when I wanted to slap some sense into her. When an ex-boyfriend who broke not just your heart but ALL OF YOU comes back into your life with a brand-new girlfriend, the right thing to do was to move on and stay away. Why did she have to hang around?! Again, Lowe lays it all out the best Jake put you through hell last semester, never mind that he broke up with you.
I might have been the only one who noticed how hard it's been for you watching him with Melissa, but it doesn't mean you didn't feel all that. Suddenly, he breaks up with Melissa and what The reality is that the fact that the characters were imperfect were crucial in building the plot. It also made for a more realistic tale. At some point, I was waiting for Charley to hook up with anyone just to show him up. But in hindsight, that would have been the usual unnecessary drama that storylines like these fall into.
I am grateful to Samantha Young for keeping this from falling into that mess. There is a sequel coming in but there is resolution at the end of this book. You do get a whiff of probable drama ahead but you are not left hanging at the end of this book.
And whatever lies ahead, I am pretty sure Samantha Young will weave her magic once again. I can't wait! View all 6 comments. Jul 04, Zakirrah BookBlogger rated it liked it Shelves: Okay I started this book off with expectations that it would be as good as On Dublin street which I frikin loved..
Unfortunately it wasn't. The story starts off when you meet Charley who is 20yrs old and is studying abroad in Edinburgh with her best friend.
They decide to go to a party being held not far away but things come crashing down when Charley comes face to face with her past. The boy who left her heart broken Without an explanation The boy she was in love with when she was 16 The boy was now a man and he stood in-front of her with another women under his arm.. What will happen? Can Jake and Charley be just friends? Find Closure and move forward? The past contained many happy blissful memories but there were also the messed up ones.
People got hurt and Jake's head wasn't in the right place when he was Will Charley be able to forgive him? Can they go back to what they had? I think my fav character was Charley, she is a smart ass, funny, charming, kind and sexy. She is strong and smart and has a hero complex! She loves saving people and sometimes she saves people without knowing it, she gets her nickname Supergirl after saving her sister when they were younger..
Jake oh Jake.. I loved the old Jake, you see, the book flicks from past to present.. Past Jake was funny charming cocky loving and overall happy. They were perfect for each other but after finding out he left and everything that happened I just haven't forgiven Jake! Bless him he was an awesome friend and I hope he finds someone in the next book!
He was always there when Charley needed him, there were no questions he just knew when to be there for her. Also loved Beck.. The ending was kinda abrupt I didn't want it to end there I think it should have been a stand alone not a series, or a series but for different characters. May 26, Melissa rated it it was amazing Shelves: Honestly, if I thought this woman could write, her foray into the New Adult world blew my expectations out of the water!
This book starts off with Charley Redford, a seemingly normal college girl whose recently moved to Edinburgh, Scotland with her best friend, Claudia, to spend the year studying abroad.
As part of them trying to integrate themselves into their new environment, they attend a party a new friend, Beck, invites them to. Not even a few minutes into the party Charley sees him — Jacob Caplin — her ex-boyfriend and the one person Charley never prepared herself to see again, lest a whole continent away from where they first met. From the get-go, just from reading through all the emotions Charley experiences from catching Jake's gaze randomly at a party, I was left breathless.
And so the story begins. I feel they have the potential to drag down a story, making them slower to get through and even tedious. Some of my favorites scenes in this book were from the retrospects! Wanting to find out the why then, not only had me ripping through the pages, it also made it clear that nothing was completely black and white where these two were concerned.
Without spoiling anything, I knew a love like Jake and Charley shared couldn't have shattered so easily, but that doesn't mean they didn't have serious issues to work through. At the end of it, I was glad to see these two could finally find peace.
Present day Charley is a lot more cynical and insecure than her younger-self, and with good reason. The love of her life rejected her and appears to be moving on seamlessly. Still, I felt she acted pretty mature given her circumstance.
I liked how she wasn't afraid to call Jake on his bull while at the same time trying to stay empathetic to his side of the situation. His chest rumbled underneath my cheek as he chuckled. You never bore me. You surprise me. Not because you made me work for it.
What can I say. The gall he had, coming to a place he knew Charley would be at, and all the while appearing to be fine, was more than enough reason for me not like him. Watching them wade through their feelings was a combination of funny, and frustrating and swoon-worthy and just plain heartbreaking at times. Still, at no point did I have any doubts that Jake Caplin was a pretty awesome guy who in youth made some pretty big mistakes. All I can say, is that when you read this which you need to give Jake a chance.
Samantha Young knows how to write these swoony-alpha males in a way that makes you helpless but to fall for them. Speaking of characters, I loved about all the side-characters in this book, with the exception of Melissa which again, was weird. Not only were they loyal and a good sounding board for their friends, but their sexual chemistry was pretty explosive.
I can only hope they get together before either of them strangles the other. Though he flirts with Charley initially, nothing happens, except for him becoming such a good friend to her. I found myself swooning for real whenever he spoke and when I went to check my highlights, half of them were things Lowe had said: Except towards the end, the story never dragged and even then, it was more my frustration with view spoiler [the whole Melissa situation.
Jake was with Charley first, and while I understand the guilt Charley and Jake feel, they gave Melissa too much power over their happiness.
I really hope this doesn't become a recurring issue in the next book hide spoiler ]. Now, though there will be a second book, that doesn't mean this ended with a cliffhanger or badly.
Much to the contrary, Jake and Charley got a really nice and happy ending, making it obvious they're at a much better place. That said, after everything they've been through, issues do remain, not only for Jake and Charley, but for side characters, like Beck and Claudia. It'll be fun to see what Samantha Young will do with these characters next.
Until then, this is a definite must download! If you're a fan of New Adult, romance, alpha-males, great friends, and stories about redemption, then this is the read for you! View all 5 comments. Aug 09, Didi rated it it was ok Shelves: I am going to go with my gut that this rating, for a Samantha Young book, was an anomaly. I usually love her stuff and judging from that I figured I would love this too. But I didn't love it.
It was at most average. Another NA book full of over-the-top angst and wasted time. Wasted time getting together, not my time reading this book, ;-. The story of Charley and Jake is about second chances, lost opportunities and misplaced blame. Their love is real, pure and meant to be epic, but getting ther I am going to go with my gut that this rating, for a Samantha Young book, was an anomaly.
Their love is real, pure and meant to be epic, but getting there was what this book was about, well, assumed to be about because although there was no cliffy, it ended on a to be continued That wasn't necessary. At all. I actually think if the book contained less filler and more substance, Charley and Jake could have easily gotten their HEA in this book and left the continuation of the series to be about other significant secondary characters. Instead, I found myself skimming crazily over things not necessary or even worthwhile.
The angst and over thinking Charley and Jake went through was so unrealistic. Especially after Jake did what he did and realized his mistake, why didn't he try and make it right? In a normal, everyday similar situation "Jake" would have at least tried to reach out and apologize. Especially considering how much it affected him! But he went on facing a future of doubt and uncertainty. I just don't get it. And Charley. She was definitely more relatable.
A girl hurt immemsely by the guy she loves. She acted the way I believe any girl in her shoes would act. But again, she had so many chances to come clean and demand the truth behind everything she wondered about and she never took them, why? The whole love triangle thing with Melissa was just aggravating. That whole time Jake was with her I kept wondering why someone wasn't kicking his ass! This is a rant, I know. I have loved this author's work in the past and I will continue with her other works but not this series.
I also want to emphasize that although this book didn't do it for me it did it for many others and in order to judge you must read it on your own. Different strokes for different folks.. Mild POV: No, not a relationship cliffy but a to be continued View all 19 comments. Ooh I love a bit of angst and this book certainly delivered on that.
Their relationship is solid and nothing can split them apart. Unt Ooh I love a bit of angst and this book certainly delivered on that. Until it does. Fast forward 4 years and heartbroken Charley begins her study abroad program in Edinburgh along with her best friend Claudia. Charley has never been the same since Jake broke her so completely but she is determined to move on with life and is excited to be in Majestic Scotland. What she wasn't planning on was bumping into Jake and his girlfriend.
Especially when she becomes part of a great circle of friends which include her ex and she has to see them on a daily basis. Things come to a head when the gang go on a trip to Fort William. I loved the authors description of the Scottish Highlands it was almost as if you were there. May 22, Kelli Spear rated it it was amazing Shelves: I finished Into the Deep just over an hour ago and I'm still reeling in all of my emotions.
I was ecstatic to get an ARC from Samantha to review because second chance love stories are pretty much my fave at the moment. After reading the description, I was positive I'd adore this story.
I had no idea just how much though. Into the Deep covers all of the emotional spectrum. My digital copy is covered in highlighted sections and filled with notes. From t I finished Into the Deep just over an hour ago and I'm still reeling in all of my emotions. From the very beginning, this book captures you in its spell. Samantha Young is a phenomenal storyteller. She creates amazingly in-depth characters that you fall in love with.
Even those in supporting roles become important to you. She's created a group of people that I feel I know and consider friends. Absolute brilliance. Now for the breakdown of my feelings about the story. First of all, not only are second chance love stories basically my favorite thing ever but I adore when it's told in flashback style. I was sold immediately. There would be no way I could dislike this book. Charley is awesome.
What a great character. You can't help but fall a bit in love with her yourself. She doesn't download into the typical high school drama and BS. She's a true individual. She has her own style, sense of humor and doesn't put up with anyone treating others poorly. She's easily one of my favorite female characters.
And then there's Jake I love me a bad boy. And he was renowned for his womanizing ways. But behind that was a super amazing guy. I was smitten. No, I take that back. I'm still smitten. Jake is gorgeous, athletic, protective, sweet and truly everything you'd want in a first love. So what went wrong and made Charley upset to see him four years later?
As you flip back and forth from past to present, you cannot stop yourself from falling for Jake. It's impossible. Anyone who says otherwise is lying. He says and does the sweetest things. Their relationship was so adorable. I loved their banter. I loved watching them take baby steps. I loved that he completely and totally fell for an atypical high school girl.
The present scenes are hard to read because we have no idea how he broke her. The entire time I was reading those parts, I was nearly screaming in frustration. It's beyond obvious that they belong together. His new girlfriend just felt wrong.
And you couldn't help but feel despair over their lost years. All I wanted was for Jake to dump Melissa and get Charley back. That was all. It got to the point of me not even caring what happened in the past. Yep, he won me over as well.
There is so much realism in this book and it'll truly grip you. Once you get to the reason they broke up, your heart will break all over again. It was definitely not what I was expecting. Everything about it was devastating and I literally had to put my Nook down to cry. I was so connected to this book and felt like I was alongside them, living these events as they occurred. The ending leaves things open and I'm still worried about the direction things are heading.
Jake and Charley still have several issues to work out before they can get their relationship back to what it once was. I'm going to post a few of my favorite quotes here: I've been in love with you since our first date, and every day since I've fallen deeper and deeper for you. It's one of my favorite feelings.. You will feel all of the ups and downs as if they're happening to you.
Samantha Young has another best-seller on her hands. If you don't completely fall for this book, you need to check if your heart still beats.
Amazing, beautiful, touching, brilliant I don't have a large enough vocabulary to express how much I enjoyed this one. And I think this may be my favorite work by Samantha yet. I'm looking forward to what's next in the saga. View all 9 comments. Jan 11, TF rated it really liked it. Jul 15, Dee Montoya rated it really liked it.

In this first book we Meet Charlie and Jake as they experience young love as teenagers, then they are separated by some terrible events until they meet again across the world in Edinburg, Scotland. What's next for this couple, will they rekindle their love or finally move on? Aug 10, Polly rated it liked it. Ehhhn I wanted to love this book.
I'm a huge fan of On the Dublin Street series. I have to say I pretty much never felt a connection to Jake. He's an asshole. He went to Ireland hoping he would run into Charley and brought along his new girlfriend thinking she would be ok with that? Asshole move.
