Live young. Live hard. Love deep.

Charley Redford was just an ordinary girl until Jake Caplin moved to her small town in Indiana and convinced her she was extraordinary. Almost from day one Jake pulled Charley into the deep and promised he was right there with her. But when a tragic incident darkened Jake’s life he waded out into the shallows and left Charley behind.

Almost four years later Charley thinks she’s moved on. That is until she takes a study year abroad in Edinburgh and bumps into none other than Jake Caplin at a party with his new girlfriend. The bad-boy-turned-good attempts to convince Charley to forgive him, and as her best friend starts spending time with Jake’s, Charley calls a truce, only to find herself tumbling back into a friendship with him.

As they grow closer, the spark between them flares and begins playing havoc with their lives and relationships. When jealousy and longing rear their destructive heads, Charley and Jake struggle to come to grips with what they mean to one another.

And even if they work it out, there is no guarantee Charley will ever trust Jake to lead her back into the deep…

This was the beginning of an interesting journey for Charley and Jake as they build a connection over the years. We get to see where it all began and watch as they struggle with their feelings and emotions as they rekindle the relationship they once had.

The connection between Charley and Jake sparked right from the opening chapters, as their young love began to blossom. A series of events managed to put a wedge between them and they were separated quite suddenly. A few years into the future and they cross paths once again, with that bond still there, even though Charley keeps hiding her feelings and Jake begs for another chance.

I liked that Charley was strong the second time round, as she had been left heartbroken by Jake previously, she was reluctant to let Jake in. Jake was angry when he left Charley all those years ago, and didn't realise how much he still loved her until they crossed paths again. He was determined to win Charley's trust back as his feelings for her were still there.

This was a good start to the duo, and I liked that Charley and Jake had grown so much over the years and were stronger characters for what happened between them. They both had hurt, and had to face those buried feelings in their past to move on together. Samantha Young has built a fabulous beginning to this series and I am excited to see where things go for Charley and Jake next.

Here are a couple of sweet teasers for you

“All I know is that you probably deserve better than me, but I’m too selfish to let you. I’m into you, and I want you to be so into me, you don’t even care that I’m not good enough for you.”

Kindle Page 37

“Do you know how beautiful you are?” Jake muttered, his gaze still hot but adoring. “So beautiful. 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. It’s one of my favorite feelings … and I get it every time I look at you.”
