A bit disappointing!
on 20 April 2014
I am a huge fan of Samantha Young' s novels. The first book 'Into the deep' was a gripping, beautiful story so I couldn't wait to read the sequel 'Into the shallows' but I was really disappointed with the ending.
Throughout the entire book you are rooting for the 2 main characters Charley & Jake to get back together as they are truly destined to be together, however throughout 98% of the book they are apart & then in the last chapter they reconcile. The epilogue then sees them visiting her parents and getting a milkshake???
I wanted to see them living together or at Andie' s wedding where some dramatic event led to Charley's dad finally accepting Jake. Or them getting engaged or something!
For me it was a huge build up for a very lame ending.
Now there needs to be a third book to complete their story properly, a milkshake just didn't cut it!
