My Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

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 down...fast 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 it...at 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 most...it’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?

It’s been a while since I’ve devoted the time to reading an entire book in one sitting.  While life still went on and I had my duties, I still managed to read this novel in a little less than 8.5 hours. This series only get better and better.  I honestly didn’t think the author could top the Jessie-Claire romance in the last book.  Now I find myself saying the same thing about this one; while keeping my fingers crossing and secretly hoping that she does.  Whereas Going Under was reminiscence of Grease, Shallow was reminiscent of The Taming of the Shrew. Except the male lead didn’t do any pretending.  He was a playboy with a reputation unflattering for boyfriend material who was ultimately tamed by love.  *Sigh* This book brought so many warm an fuzzies to me.  I find myself flipping back to various parts long after I’ve finish just so I can swoon some more. There was a lot of smoking hotness!   I absolutely loved Payton Archer from the last book.  Her smartalickness and shallowness was epic. She did not disappoint here.  Alex also brought alot to the story with his nonstop innuendos and over confidence. There were just as many funny moments and witty commentary as romance.  I’m a native Tennessean; yet it wasn’t until the end of the book that I noticed all the landmarks mentioned in the book.  Kudos to the shout out to the Nashville burbs without letting it takeover the story.   I’m finding myself NOW a fan of this author and plan to sniff out her other works to read and gush over.

*Big Thanks to the authour for entrusting me again with an honest review!
