2.0 out of 5 stars This just did not work, 23 April 2014
By 
This review is from: Out of the Shallows (Into the Deep #2) (Kindle Edition)
Ugh I really don't know how to rate this. I do know that I wish I could get the time back I spent reading both books. Out of the shallows totally RUINED the story for me. How Charley could go from a gutsy, sweet, brave, feisty girl in the first book to miserable, whiny, selfish, manipulative and nasty in the sequel is totally beyond me. I absolutely hated her by the end of the book. Jake so deserved someone (heck, anyone) else that's for sure. It sickened me the way she made him pay, for a mistake he made as a kid when things were at their very worst for him, over and over and over again.

It's no secret I absolutely love SY's writing but this book sucked. The story limped along from the first word to the ridiculous epilogue (if you can call it that!). Did they get their HEA? Don't know and don't care, the ending was so weak! Another problem for me was the crazy timeline - I had whiplash trying to fathom out where/when/what was happening, the timeline was so short. Made for very disjointed and confusing reading.

I feel totally let down by this uber unnecessary book. Jake and Charley's story should have been wrapped up in Into the Deep, and if a second book was really necessary it should have been Beck & Claud's story.

So, 1 star for poor (stupid!!!) Jake and 1 for the writing (loved the idea of the story for Into the Deep but the wheels fell off in this one)
