Blog Tour ~ Into The Deep by Samantha Young Review and giveaway

They say that your first love stays with you forever. But what if your first love was the one? When is it too late for second chances?

This book wrapped its pages snugly around my heart and didn’t let go until the end. I was left gasping for air.

"You're it for me. They write books about what we have"

Charley and Jakes story is one of love, pure and instant, raw and deep, found and lost. We follow their journey through time, present and past. Samantha Young achieves this flawlessly. Into The Deep played like a movie in my mind. Her story-telling is so vivid and beautiful. Her words sink in with colours and sound.

I have read previous books by Samantha so I knew I would like this one. Like is a HUGE understatement. My kindle having been glued to my hands for the past 42 hours. When you pick this up, you will not settle until you have finished. A perfect, mind-blowing, captivating, addictive and emotional love story.

"Fuck. I really want to kiss you right now"
 "I've been in love with since our first date, and every day since I've fallen deeper and deeper for you"

The characters are just perfect, to the point that I want a Charley in my life. The girl is amazing. I looked at her as a hero. If women are to be perceived in any such light, this is how I would happily be represented. Our main girl is caring, intelligent, WITTY, ballsy and a smart-ass ;). I love her.

Then there is Jake (sighs). A perfect rogue. He set his sights on Charley and doesn’t rest until he has her. The beauty is in watching the chase. Watching as they fall in love. One that comes so easy and naturally. The connection is instant and Samantha’s words speak volumes. I was literally right there in the moment with them, every step of the way. Damn, the tension and chemistry brewed and bubbled until erupting like a volcano and sweeping me off my feet. This is a classic case of, it does what it says on the tin, you will find yourself well and truly in the deep without a paddle and swimming for life. Praying for the happy –ending and not being able to utter a breath until you reach the pinnacle of the story.

"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"

I can’t sing the praises enough for this book. The only way to do it justice is for you to read it. If you don’t fall in love with it and the characters within, which I guarantee you will, I will print and eat my review.

Gripping, compelling, phenomenal and a tidal wave of emotions!
