Book Description

Payton Archer's best friend, Claire, strives to be perfect in every way. Payton doesn't and this is her story.

Nick Hawke likes his car fast and his girls even faster. He blows through females quicker than his muscle car races down the "The Strip" in Collinsville and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Determined to avoid the devastation he has watched his father endure in the aftermath of his mother leaving, he believes there is no room in his life or his heart for a relationship lasting more than one night. He seeks happiness in things that won’t let him cars, adrenaline and one night stands. To his absolute dismay, all of that changes when he unexpectedly runs into an old friend and is introduced to Payton Archer, the first girl he ever wanted for more than one night. There’s only one catch...she is completely immune to him and his smooth talking ways.

Payton Archer is looking for what Claire has with Jessie, but she has given up on finding least until she leaves for college in the Fall because she is certain that is where she will find the perfect guy to fit into her perfect world. She plans on Summer being nothing but three uneventful months of fun, but it turns out to be anything but ordinary when Payton is introduced to Nick Hawke, one of Jessie’s old Collinsville friends. She is shocked by her immediate and intense attraction for “Hawke” because nothing about him is what Payton is looking for. Sure, he’s hot and sexy but he comes from Collinsville and that is definitely not on her list of prerequisites. Everything about him makes Payton’s heart speed because he is exciting and dangerous, but his fast car and the dangerous chances he takes aren't what scares Payton the’s the way Nick Hawke makes her feel every time he looks at her. Can Payton find that moment of total fearlessness and make the decision to leave the safe, shallow end of love to risk going under completely?


After reading Going Under, I could not wait to read Payton's story, because I just really liked her personality/sass; so I knew this was going to be great...and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! Payton is back again, and this time, she is shooting her mouth at one of Jessie's buddies from Collinsville, a guy that is known as a player, Nick Hawke. From the second these two eye each other, there is just some connection between them, because, after their first meet, they cannot really be apart. Well ok, Payton resists a little because she does not want to be one of Nick's one night stands, but he does not see her that way; she could be someone more to him, and that's pretty much foreign to him, but he just knows, he cannot let her go. So, do they get together? Is there even more than to this sensual connection between them? You're definitely, Definitely going to have to read and find out, because it was just really good, and yeah, you just gotta read for yourself!

So, the story was very good, entertaining, with great written characters, and all in all, written wonderfully. I think the romance aspect was just fabulous, and all I can say is, that this is a New Adult Romance not to miss! I do like that the characters, Payton and Nick, are in the age of being younger/newer adults, and have a sense of independence to just do what they want, so I like that their Romance goes up another level, as it just seemed fitting with the story line. There are sweet, sexy, and crushing moments here, but one thing I did get and you'll read this too; there are, 'No Regrets in love. Ever.' That was a sweet line that I'm quoting from somewhere from the book (not telling where!) and I just hope you read this story, because it was just divine. :)

My Rating: 4.5/5
I say a Strong PG-13 Rating to maybe a Mild R Rating
(Some Language, Sexual Situations)
