Going Under (Going Under, #1)
by Georgia Cates
Jessie Boone is a self proclaimed bad boy and doesn’t march to the beat of anyone’s drum, but his own. Growing up in less than desirable circumstances has made him no stranger to the hard knock life and his determination to leave it behind is fierce. When he finds himself transferred to East Franklin High School, he sees his opportunity to use his athletic ability to snag a college football scholarship, but Forbes Henderson, the player Jessie means to replace isn’t giving up his spot willingly. In fact, Forbes is willing to go to extreme measures to retain his place as first string quarterback. When Forbes’ malicious plan to injure his replacement fails, Jessie is furious and determined to show him he messed with the wrong person; not only is he going to take the position of first string quarterback, he’s going to take his girl, too.
Claire Deveraux is perfection at it’s best. She is beautiful, intelligent and unaware she just became Jessie Boone’s conquest as revenge against her boyfriend, Forbes Henderson. Like her flawless performance as the perfect daughter and student, Claire’s production of being the perfect girlfriend has everyone fooled, except Jessie Boone, and she fears this tattooed bad boy will see her secret desire to explore his crude threats and promises to rock her perfect world. If she decides to give in to one uninhibited moment with Jessie, will she learn too late that it was all an act of vengeance or will Jessie learn the taste of first love is sweeter than that of revenge?
I know, many of you would say, you have read this kind of story before. It's your tipical romance story with a bad boy and a cute rich girl. It kinda reminds me of Perfect Chemistry or Pushing the Limits, but it is in no way a copycat or something like that. This story has it's own origianlity, very likable characters and an interesting plot.
You can read this book in one sitting without even noticing the time went by. I really liked the Jessie and Clarie. Maybe I like Jessie just a little bit more (those of you who read my reviews, know I LOVE the bad boys!), but I liked Clarie just fine. Also her best friend Payton is amazing, she made me laugh so much. I can't wait to read the next book which is about Payton. There were a few very cheesy lines (okay, maybe a little bit more than just a few) that had me roll my eyes, but in general I pretty much enjoyed the book.
So, everyone who liked Perfect Chemistry, I think you should read this book, I think it won't dissapoint you.
