review: The Deeper We Get by Jessica Gibson


The Deeper We Get by Jessica Gibson

New Adult Contemporary Romance

Chad Langer was always running. Running from his past, afraid of letting himself be happy and free. College was going to be his new start. New city, new school, new people.

Scarlett would be his undoing. He knew it the moment he saw her. Something in her eyes called to him. She was just as broken as he was.

Sometimes the past doesn’t stay in the past. Will they be able to overcome the obstacles set in their path?

About Jessica Gibson
 First and foremost, I'm a wife to an amazing man, and mother to a 2 year old little boy. I love to read when I can find the time, my Kindle is my best friend. I've read tons and tons of books. One of my favorite authors is Diana Gabaldon, her Outlander series is absolutely amazing. I also really enjoy Charlaine Harris' True Blood series. I'll read anything supernatural, I've blown through most of the good YA series' that are out there. I think my love of reading really helped me branch out into writing.   

My Thoughts: 

The Deeper We Fall is a turbulent, heartbreaking heck of a story.  Chad and Scarlett were perfect for one another, even if they were a bit broken to begin with. 

I really thought throughout most of the story that Chad was the biggest d-bag in the world.  He grows on you and you really begin to understand why he behaves how he does, but that still doesn't make it ok.  He's angry and he full of rage and hate towards his past.  He's been through some crazy stuff in his life and the reappearance of Tom is really just the worst thing that could happen to him.  

I really would have liked to know more about Scarlett.  I know the main character was Chad, but I really would have liked a more personal glance at Scarlett's life. 

Overall - I really liked this story.  Chad and Scarlett have great chemistry and they were a great fit for one another.  I enjoyed reading about the rest of the family again as well - Becca, Levi, Ruth and everybody else.  Great job to the author, keep it coming!!
