Gifted computer hacker Taylor is in over her head.
When she transfers to the prestigious Wilbrook Academy and begins working a case with scrumptious nineteen-year-old martial arts instructor, aka manwhore, Colt, hanging out with him becomes a necessary evil to get the job done. But resisting the bad-boy that is so off limits might be more than she can manage. He's one of those guys you just know isn't good for you –he can–and often does–have any girl he wants.
The deeper she gets involved in a troubling field assignment, the more she finds herself relying on Colt. If she can just figure out how to do the right thing and not fall for irritatingly hot Colt in the process, life can go back to normal. Baby steps.
IN TOO DEEP is a mature young adult contemporary romance told in dual point of view. It is book one in a series. Book two, TEMPTED is due fall of 2013.
In Too Deep is a book about attraction, and how sometimes no matter how hard you fight it you just have to give in. Eliza Jane does a good job of creating two characters that are complete opposites of each other, but feel drawn to the other.
This story takes place at a school for teens with exceptional skills. The biggest downfall I had with this book was that I didn’t feel there was enough focus on the “spy” type stuff. I felt like their time at the school should have been elaborated on a bit more. I wanted more hacker scenes, and maybe a few more missions. I also wanted to know what happens while Taylor goes home during break. We get an idea, but it’s kind of glossed over.
That all sounds really negative. But the story between Taylor and Colt is what kept me turning the pages. Taylor doesn’t have much experience in the love department, while Colt definitely has a bit much. I did appreciate how Colt tries to behave while around Taylor. He does care for her, even though he’s a man whore. There were a few twists that I didn’t see coming, but overall it was a fun read.
