Going Under + Giveaway
Going Under by Georgia Cates
Jessie Boone is a self proclaimed bad boy and doesn’t march to the beat of anyone’s drum, but his own. Growing up in less than desirable circumstances has made him no stranger to the hard knock life and his determination to leave it behind is fierce. When he finds himself transferred to East Franklin High School, he sees his opportunity to use his athletic ability to snag a college football scholarship, but Forbes Henderson, the player Jessie means to replace isn’t giving up his spot willingly. In fact, Forbes is willing to go to extreme measures to retain his place as first string quarterback. When Forbes’ malicious plan to injure his replacement fails, Jessie is furious and determined to show him he messed with the wrong person; not only is he going to take the position of first string quarterback, he’s going to take his girl, too.
Claire Deveraux is perfection at it’s best. She is beautiful, intelligent and unaware she just became Jessie Boone’s conquest as revenge against her boyfriend, Forbes Henderson. Like her flawless performance as the perfect daughter and student, Claire’s production of being the perfect girlfriend has everyone fooled, except Jessie Boone, and she fears this tattooed bad boy will see her secret desire to explore his crude threats and promises to rock her perfect world. If she decides to give in to one uninhibited moment with Jessie, will she learn too late that it was all an act of vengeance or will Jessie learn the taste of first love is sweeter than that of revenge?
I loved this book!! It reminded me a little bit of Pushing the Limits with the whole bad boy thing. However, they are different books and were both great. Going Under had my full attention while I was reading it. It was heartbreaking at times, and sweet at other times. My emotions really were on a roller coaster throughout this book.
There were times I would get frustrated with the characters, but not in a bad way. It was necessary for the characters to act like that in order for the book to proceed the way that it did. I think it also shows how invested I was in the book that I was getting frustrated with the way they were acting towards each other.
I thought this was a great book that I would read again. I really liked the ending, but I did not think it was much of a cliffhanger. I am not sure what could happen in the second book. I guess I will find out when I do a tour for it next week!!
I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
