More informationNAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LIBRARY JOURNAL
In Robin York's sizzling debut, a college student is attacked online and must restore her name-and stay clear of a guy who's wrong for her, but feels so right.
When Caroline Piasecki's ex-boyfriend posts their sex pictures on the Internet, it destroys her reputation as a nice college girl. Suddenly her once-promising future doesn't look so bright. Caroline tries to make the pictures disappear, hoping time will bury her shame. Then a guy she barely knows rises to her defense and punches her ex to the ground.
West Leavitt is the last person Caroline needs in her life. Everyone knows he's shady. Still, Caroline is drawn to his confidence and swagger-even after promising her dad she'll keep her distance. On late, sleepless nights, Caroline starts wandering into the bakery where West works.
They hang out, they talk, they listen. Though Caroline and West tell each other they're "just friends," their feelings intensify until it becomes impossible to pretend. The more complicated her relationship with West gets, the harder Caroline has to struggle to discover what she wants for herself-and the easier it becomes to find the courage she needs to fight back against the people who would judge her.
When all seems lost, sometimes the only place to go is deeper.
Praise for Deeper
"York's beautiful prose and vivid descriptions enhance the realism and impact of Caroline and West's story. Deeper and Harder are sensual and profoundly moving. The books are told in first-person from both Caroline's and West's POVs, and I sat on the emotional roller coaster right beside them as West learns to hold tight to Caroline and embrace life to the fullest. . . . They are books I will cherish."-Lea Franczak, USA Today
"Deeper perfectly captured me. Robin York masterfully tells this story with the perfect balance in tone and realistic characters that I'm still thinking about days later. One of the best written New Adult novels, hands down!"-Cora Carmack, New York Times be
