|5 stars isn’t enough I rate it 10!
Written by Cora Kenborn
Shallow is the story of Fallen Super Model Shiloh West and the boy she left behind, Carrick “Cary” Kincaid. I have taken my time on leaving my review because I want to leave a review that will do justice for this book. This book is BY FAR this author’s best work. I could not put this it down.
Let me just start by saying that this book is raw, gritty, highly emotional and man the sexual tension is out of this world. Cora Kenborn is able to rip you completely apart and then slowly, piece by little piece, she puts you back together again and gives you that HEA you are begging for.
Shiloh West, wow… She was the girl that you hated but wanted to be just like in high school. She had it all. Money, looks, friends, and that “it” factor. And she pissed it all away in amazing fashion. But, the growth that she goes through on this journey of finding redemption, finding herself and love and acceptance is breathtaking. I can’t remember the last time that I rooted for a character so much (and for me to not even really like her to being with lol).
Cary **SWOON** I LOVED Cary. I understood his anger, and his need for revenge and his need to make Shiloh pay. She ruined his life and all he did was love her. The struggles that he goes through to try to stop loving her, to stop this need for revenge. His character was excellent. He had that dark brooding thing going for him, on top of that he was a mma fighter (mmmmm) and under it all? He was still that boy from High School who was in love with the Popular girl and would do anything for her.
The secondary characters were FANTASTIC. Bianca (Shiloh’s mom), Frankie and the boys and Will. I LOVED them and can I hint and say I would LOVE some more from this book world???
Taryn, What to say about her. I honestly don’t think that I have ever hated a character so much. (I am hoping that was the point lol). She was always in the shadow of Shiloh and man I think she got what she deserved. (I won’t go into more *spoilers*)
Overall, This book is amazing. My top read for the year for sure. The character depth, and growth shown is outstanding. This book is extremely well written, the flow and pace of the book is on point. I would HIGHLY recommend this to someone that is looking for a book that is going to give you all of the feels.
What an amazing job! I can’t wait to read more from this author!
