Genre: New Adult Romance
Long- Gracie has just finished her freshman year of college in Memphis when she takes a job at a local pizza joint in her home town of McKenzie, Tennessee. She is the epitome of innocence when she meets Noah. Noah is unabashedly handsome, intriguingly reckless and just cocky enough to be sexy. Gracie’s instincts tell her to stay far away from him and based on the stories she hears from her co-workers he leaves broken hearts in his wake. But still, she can’t explain her fascination with him.
Noah puts aside his bad boy ways when what he thought was a summer crush has him unexpectedly falling in love. But soon after Gracie transfers to UT Knoxville to be with Noah, their unexpected love becomes riddled with anger, deceit and humiliation.
Jake, Noah’s former roommate and Gracie’s best friend, can no longer be a bystander. Gracie’s world falls out from beneath her and when she breaks she turns to Jake for strength. As Jake talks her through a decision she’s not yet strong enough to make, together they uncover a truth so ugly neither of them is prepared for its fallout. Will Jake pull her to the surface or is Gracie Jordan finally In Too Deep?
This book had my head spinning. It was full with different emotions and you can just be along for the ride. I hated Noah from the start. He is such a disgusting person but he hides it with charm and good looks so Gracie didnt see it coming. She also annoyed me a little because she was to forgiving. I just couldnt understand how she could go back to him over and over after everything he did. Jake was the bright star of this book even though he isnt perfect. He was there for Gracie every time even though it brought him nothing but pain. This book will have you cry, cringe, curse and yell at the people in it but sometme it will bring a smile to your face. This book is real, no sugarcoating, it shows us the ugly side of love and be prepared to be an emotional wreck while reading it but it is well worth it.

“Writing is my way of making sense of the world. When I give my characters life on the pages I write, it frees up space in my mind to welcome in new stories that are begging to be told,” says Brownlow
