Summary: 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 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 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’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?

Goodreads link:


It is two weeks after their high school graduation, and what was supposed to be a summer of fun in the sun became three months of a love neither of them will ever forget.

Nick Hawke is known for his way with the ladies and his skills as a street racer. Never wanting to feel the pain his father felt when his mother left, Nick isn't looking for forever. Wanting to follow in his father's footsteps, Nick wants to become a police officer. Payton Archer wants the kind of love her best friend, Claire has with her boyfriend, Jessie. The kind of love that lasts forever. But after a recent breakup, Payton is reluctant to open her heart to someone again.

I thought that the title of this book really described the kind of love Nick and Payton have experienced up to their meeting. They've both been in the shallow end of love. The only difference is in how they dealt with that shallowness. Nick stays commitment free hopping from on girl to the next. Payton has built a wall around her heart and waits for the one who can break it down. But Nick's way can have life-changing consequences.

Like in Going Under, Shallow addresses real life issues. This time it's unplanned pregnancy and the consequences of unsafe sex. Although Nick uses protection each time he has sex with a girl, there's still a chance of pregnancy, no matter how small. And it doesn't help that Nick has been with so many girls that he can't even remember them all.

Not only does Shallow tell Nick and Payton's story, it also continues Jessie and Claire's. We also meet Nick's sister, Dallas, who starts seeing Dane. If there is another book in this series, I hope it's their story. It seems like the natural progression of the series to me.


"I want truly, madly, deeply. I want what Claire has with Jessie."

"Love is delicate as glass, once broken it can be fixed, but there will always be cracks."

About this Author: 

I am a wife, mother of two daughters and a labor and delivery nurse. I have recently added Paranormal Romance Writer to my list of things to keep be busy, but I am ecstatic to release my debut novel, Blood of Anteros, the first book in The Vampire Agápe Series.

Like others that enjoy a great story of paranormal romance, I am easily bored by the tale of an obtainable, ordinary romance and was inspired to create The Vampire Agápe Series. When I am not tied up with my family or delivering babies, I am working feverishly on the second book in The Vampire Agápe Series.
