Deeper is the first book in the Caroline & West Series. 

Book Review by Laura. 

Caroline has a promising future as a lawyer. That’s until her ex boyfriend posts some sex pictures of her on the Internet in an act called ‘revenge porn.’ Now her future isn’t looking so bright and she doesn’t know what to do to make things right. Then, when a boy she barely knows punches her ex, Caroline finds herself getting closer to a boy that she knows isn’t good for her.

West is not someone she should be with. She knows this and even though they both tell each other that they are just friends, their feelings intensify until they can no longer pretend.

In this time, Caroline doesn’t know what she wants to do but has to find courage to fight back.

I didn’t know whether I was going to like this book because I have to admit, I assumed it was going to be a little ‘shades of grey’ genre but I was very pleasantly surprised and once I began to read, I couldn’t put it down and I feel so bad for having mentally put it in that category. Caroline and West were interesting characters to get to know. Apparent complete opposites but both of them are searching for something. It was good to see their relationship develop and it got to the point where I was willing them to kiss.

Caroline was a vulnerable character but also strong and I liked that. Even when she is at her lowest, she doesn’t let herself be the victim (always trying to do something to stop events,) and West is a wonderful, sexy, smoldering hero.

The plot kept me wanting to turn the page and want to know what happens to them at the end and it wasn’t what I excepted either.

I did feel protective of Caroline too and it made me more aware of what ‘revenge porn,’ is. It’s thought provoking in terms of what content on the Internet can do to a person.

A great book and a wonderful beginning to the Caroline and West series. There is an extract of the next book in the series at the end of this current book. It’s called Harder and I am looking forward to reading it in its entirety. I want to find out what is next for Caroline and West. I don’t want to wish my life away but roll on July.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
