Blog Tour: In Too Deep by Michelle Kemper Brownlow

Welcome to my stop on the In Too Deep Blog Tour
hosted by Xpresso Book Tours.
You can find the schedule HERE


Gracie has just finished her freshman year of college in Memphis when she takes a job at a local pizza joint in her home town of McKenzie, Tennessee. She is the epitome of innocence when she meets Noah. Noah is unabashedly handsome, intriguingly reckless and just cocky enough to be sexy. Gracie’s instincts tell her to stay far away from him and based on the stories she hears from her co-workers he leaves broken hearts in his wake. But still, she can’t explain her fascination with him.
Noah puts aside his bad boy ways when what he thought was a summer crush has him unexpectedly falling in love. But soon after Gracie transfers to UT Knoxville to be with Noah, their unexpected love becomes riddled with anger, deceit and humiliation.
Jake, Noah’s former roommate and Gracie’s best friend, can no longer be a bystander. Gracie’s world falls out from beneath her and when she breaks she turns to Jake for strength. As Jake talks her through a decision she’s not yet strong enough to make, together they uncover a truth so ugly neither of them is prepared for its fallout. Will Jake pull her to the surface or is Gracie Jordan finally In Too Deep?

Cindy's Review: 
In Too Deep is a contemporary romance read. Okay, let me start off by saying this book got my brain twisting and turning. Like I had absolutely no idea how the ending is going to be, who Gracie is going to end up with. 

At first, when I read the synopsis, I thought Gracie and Jake had a chance. I mean, it definitely seems like it. But when I started to read the book, it seems like Gracie will end up with Noah. I really thought she was going to end up with Noah. But the farther I get into the book, I realized Noah is a hoe. He doesn't really seem like a bad boyfriend, but as I read on, I realized it was just his cover. When Noah said he would change for Gracie, I really thought he would change. Apprently not.

It wasn't until near the end of the book till I realized Jake would be the one for Gracie. Dangit. I just spoiled it for everyone. I thought Jake was going to be those hot best friends that the main character should totally fall for and she doesn't. She ends up with her boyfriend or something. And then, it gets you so mad, you stop to stomp your feet and ending up stubbing your toe. Yeah. I thought Jake was gonna be one of those. Apparently not. And I'm happy, because, well, as far as I could tell, Jake had abs. And Noah doesn't. The end. I'm sorry, being kpop crazy, I judge by abs. Omg. Okay. Sorry.

So, another great contemporary read about getting over love and finding out who the heck is the one for you. For those contemporary lovers, this one's a great one~ 

I rate this an 8~

Author Bio:
Michelle Kemper Brownlow has been a storyteller her entire life. Her debut was on the high school cheerleading bus granting requests to re-tell her most embarrassing moments for a gaggle of hysterical squadmates. 

Earning her Bachelor’s degree from Penn State University in Art Education and then marrying her very own “Jake,” she moved to Binghamton, NY where she taught high school. After having two children she quit work and finished her Master’s degree in Elementary Education at Binghamton University.

The Brownlow family of four moved to Michelle’s hometown of Morgantown, PA while the children were still quite young. A few years after moving, her family grew by one when they welcomed a baby into their home through the gift of adoption. The family still resides in PA, just miles from where that high school cheer bus was parked.

Michelle has been an artist for as long as she can remember, always choosing pencils and crayons over toys and puzzles. As a freelance illustrator, her simple characters play the starring roles in numerous emergent reader books published by Reading Reading Books.

“Writing is my way of making sense of the world. When I give my characters life on the pages I write, it frees up space in my mind to welcome in new stories that are begging to be told,” says Brownlow.
