Deeper (Caroline & West #1) by Robin York

Caroline Piasecki's future suddenly looks gloomy. Her career as a lawyer is in jeopardy when her ex boyfriend does the unthinkable. He has shared intimate pictures he took of her while they were together and now the whole college and the world has seen her naked. She can't sleep and suddenly stalking the cute guy she met at the beginning of the year sounds like a good idea.

West Leavitt will do anything for his sister, including deal weed, wait tables on the weekend, work nights at the bakery and whatever makes him the money to keep his mother and sister comfortable. No one in college knows the real West and he wants to keep it that way. The last thing he needs is a girlfriend who could complicate his life. Emotions are not needed or so he thought. It all changes when he meets Caroline.  The more he tries to stay away from her the more he keeps on looking forward to seeing her again. Every night she shows up at the bakery makes it harder to keep his hands off her.

Too bad emotions are hard to stop.

“I wanted you from the minute I saw you," he says. "I want you right now, and you can barely stand me. I can barely stand me, so I don't know why you put up with my shit, but even right now, when I hate myself and you're pissed at me, I still want to push you down on the bed and take off your shirt and get inside you. Get deep inside you, and then deeper, until I'm so deep I don't even know what's me anymore and what's you."

I have mixed feelings about this book.  I like West the majority of the time.  I thought he had a lot to deal with and his back story broke my heart. What I had a hard time accepting is the multiple times he pushed Caroline away. At times I felt like Caroline was a doormat first to her good for nothing ex-boyfriend and then when she kept on showing up after West kept on rejecting her. She did fix it in the end and I liked her more when she finally stood up for herself.  I like the spark she showed then.
I'm not going to lie, I hated the ending but I'm glad the story is not done.

“I want you, and I don’t know how to stop wanting you. I want to get deep inside you, and then deeper, until I’m so deep I don’t even know what’s me anymore and what’s you.”
