Love, Love, Love!!! That pretty much sums it up. The characters Jessie and Claire are swoon worthy, because it is so easy to fall for them. I couldn't help but get caught up in the emotion of this book, and it was like the feelings transferred from the page. This story is so beautifully written and realistic. It a good representation of how circumstances don't define who you are. Jessie is seen as trouble and no good for Claire, but this bad boy is super smart, and has heart. Claire is seen as the good girl, who does what is expected of her but she is more than that. Though they both are from opposite spectrum's of the social hierarchy, the chemistry between them ignites and what starts as a game of who can tempt who first becomes much more than they expected. There is a part towards the end that made my heart literally fall to the floor, and I thought there is no way it can end like that. Cates' writing style draws you in so well that you feel as if you are apart of this world. Absolutely fantastic read!

I loved this story! The witty banter, the lovable characters and a great story telling make this one of my favorite stories this year. I have never read this author before, but you can bet I will be looking at what else she has going on. Excellent!

Claire is from a wealthy family and is going out with the boy she is expected to date. Her best friend Payton steals the show with her laugh out loud verbal banter:

Payton: "And by the way, you've got something on your a**."
Claire: I spun around to look at the back of my dress as I pulled the skirt part around to look and said, "What is it?"
Payton: "Hot new Guy's eyes." She died out laughing. "I hope he got plenty of rest last night because his legs are gonna be real tired after he runs though your mind all day".

Payton does not like Claire's boyfriend so when the new poor kid Jessie starts making moves on Claire, Payton can see their chemistry and encourages their romance. But Jessie has a lot more going on in his private life than he is revealing and doesn't feel he deserves Claire. Then DRAMA, DRAMA, DRAMA that is really gooooood and romantic.

The part I loved the most was when Payton was talking. I really hope she gets her own book. She made me laugh out loud several times with her unique vocabulary. I learned words like "fauxpology" and "mansplation". She is too much and kept me in stitches. Claire and Jessie's romance is a page turner.

So good! The writing reminds me of Colleen Hoover's Point of Retreat (Slammed series) Simone Elkeles's,

Let me start by saying that I loved Jessie and Claire. Lots of chemistry together that made it a great Y/A read. The only problem with the book is that I felt cheated out of the ending. The last chapter ends with a major cliffhanger and then we have an epilogue "Three years later". My question is why?? I wish the author would add that "missing" chapter and then go to an epilogue to make it a more satisfying read for everybody. I would still recommend this book though. I guess if one is prepared about what to expect they won't be as disappointed as I was :)

Due to the many complaints received about how the book ended, the author just added one more chapter and you can read it for free on her website!!

This review may seem slightly confusing, but that's because it was originally a co-review on my blog: [...]
How do I feel about Going Under?
Meh. Just like most romances. (For a huge contradiction, try Comeback Love A Novel, which I adored).

I picked this book up mostly for the cover. The synopsis had seemed fairly cliche, but I was hung up on the cover, which I've gotten into the bad habit of looking at first. Bad idea.

The first half of Going Under was actually really good. I enjoyed the teasing, witty exchanges; those were super entertaining. But all the mush and gush of the second half bored me out of my mind. The guy is in deep trouble and wants to protect girl. Girl doesn't care. They go through misunderstandings and hardships. Everything is cleared up and it's happily ever after. The author is a queen of cliches.

Although not my ideal heroine, Claire is actually pretty believable. When teased in front of the football players and cheerleaders, who wouldn't want to get back at Jessie Boone, and in the process, start to fall for him? I could relate to her feeling stifled under the pressure and expectations of her parents and friends. Jessie on the other hand. As far from a real teenage guy as humanly possible. Why can't the guys in novels be more normal and not raise our expectations of real-life guys so much? I swear I'm getting ready to write a novel where the guy plays video games and has pizza breath... I know of no real-life guys like Jessie Boone. He is super hot, yet sweet, sensitive, funny, basically the perfect guy, except he's poor and is forced to deal drugs. Other than his unfortunate circumstances, there is absolutely nothing wrong with him. That is NOT convincing!!
