    Initial reaction This is one of those times when you have one storyline that s given a lot of focus and seems to go in one direction, but then it jumps the shark and pulls a lot of things to where it becomes far too much and way too overdramatic I had hovered at about 2 stars, maybe even close to 2.5 because it seemed like it was trying to find its voice I hated Cali, but I was liking some of the other characters, including Jaeger , but then it just wentsomewhere else.Why do NA writers do this all the time I m just not here for this contrived melodrama.Full review Always fooled by a pretty cover It never, ever fails The premise isn t so bad either from the description, butI knew it would have contentions from that Just not to the level that was actually taken in this book It s not the worst NA title I ve read, but I think it really dropped the ball, which saddens me.I m having a hard time believing this is supposed to be a series, because the way this book built up a steady story only to throw a bunch of curveballs that had no development and were just there for melodrama, I couldn t take it I m sorry, but this is just poor writing and development The sad thing is that if the author hadn t pulled all of those cheap shots for drama in the last 20% or so of the novel, I probably would be rating this a little higher, and even giving it the benefit of the doubt.Let me start at the beginning, and it s weird to start there because it s so different of a storyline than where it ends up Cali is a young woman who s working in a casino with her friend Gen just before Cali goes off to graduate school at Harvard The two have just graduated Cali has ambitious goals, including going to law school, and she has seemingly the perfect boyfriend Ben But Gen has just been dumped in the worst way by her boyfriend Cali decides she needs to hook her friend up so the girls can be happy together But all is not well with Cali s relationship with Ben, as they seem to be growing apart.The two end up meeting Jaeger, a former athlete who got sidelined by an injury and is into woodworking at present Cali has conflicts because she feels lust for Jaeger, but feels like she needs to find someone for Gen AND the fact she s with Ben complicates things just as much Events transpire, it suddenly becomes very easy for Cali to be with Jaeger, but then it seems that Gen takes a liking to Jaeger.I knew it would happen, I just didn t know how For a time, I actually liked Jaeger and thought he was a decent guy, and I liked his backstory Cali always annoyed me beause I thought her narrative voice was trying way too much to be quirky, ditzy and humorous It felt false, almost to the point where I think that was the only thing that was keeping me from liking the narrative Well, that and the fact that the NA genre cliches were so much, you could put them all on a bingo board and hit the jackpot five times over I think I was halfway between laughing and groaning in parts of the narrative And some shares of headdesk including the phrase hot Native American deliciousness.But then this book seems to lose its way into something completely in the vein of melodramatic curveballs You think you re getting a romance story with some complications in the heroine s inner circles, but then it turns from a romantic conflict story to one with sexual harrassment, extortion, drug use, and justa whole dumping of undeveloped conflict all in one felt swoop I don t even know where some of this came from there s no build up to it, and it felt very cheaply done The ending comes across as something of a happy resolution, but by that point I was just ready to be done with the explanations and drama that was there It felt pointless and manipulative.At first I thought I was going to feel bad for giving this something of a lukewarm rating at about the midpoint of the novel because even with the insufferable voice of the heroine which was one of the only major problems I had with the narrative up to that point besides the NA cliches, it wasn t really that bad despite bad moments , but after the book jumped the shark, I don t have such qualms I can t continue with this series And I m honestly worried that since the next book is going to focus on Gen and the hot Native American lover that she s supposedly meeting it s just going to be even offensive Not doing it Sorry, but I appreciate stories that don t try to milk my emotions in cheap ways and ultimately develop their characters and emotionally weighted subjects with realism and maturity This was contrived and utterly disappointing.Overall score 1 5 starsNote I received this as an ARC from NetGalley, from the publisher.

    3 Angsty StarsI liked this book especially for being a FREEBIE on , but I didn t find myself engrossed There were too many times the author would put in an angsty situation and then have it immediately disintegrate without any buildup or cool down Overall, it was an enjoyable read and I would read from this author.

    More Reviews at and giveaways at grownupfangirl.com This is a New Adult title, only recommended for mature readers The Deep Blue follows Cali, who along with her friend Gen have just finished college and are taking a break, pre growing up for real Cali has been invited to Harvard, and just wants to lay low until she goes She got hooked up with a sweet job in Lake Tahoe, so it s looking like the perfect summer awaits. until it all goes wrong dun dun dun Cali s got it all figured out prior to the summer she spends in Lake Tahoe She has the perfect life The perfect boyfriend, the perfect friends, the perfect future. which is why I kinda love this book We re all used to characters starting out weak and then becoming strong or in bad situations, not learning from their adversity and coming out just as weak or weaker than they started We aren t used to characters who are strong being brought down by the harsh reality of life, and then learning how to struggle That s what happens to Cali She s confident, she s smart, and she s never really had to struggle When her world comes crashing down, and she learns that sometimes confidence isn t what you thought it was, she becomes even stronger than she was in the beginning I commend Jules for writing such a strong female character People think strong females can t be in love, and can t have swoon worthy feelings for guys, but Jules proves that stereotype wrong with Cali as well When Cali falls head over heals for a guy from her past, she learns that you can be independent and still receive help, still receive love I think that s such an important lesson for not only young girls, but all girls to learn The Deep Blue was an amazing read with plot twists that quite literally had my stomach in knots If you re looking for a strong female character who still says and does crazy things for love, then look no further than The Deep Blue Enjoy

    I loved this book I loved how jealous Cali got, I lean all the way to the side and that s when I see Jaeger talking to a petite brunette She s wearing a tiny red bikini and smiling at him The dread from a moment ago vanishes, and my stomach tightens, chest burning Who s that Jaeger looks over and our eyes meet My breath catches and suddenly my heart s humming like he wasn t just talking to another girl, igniting jealousy And you don t mess with his girl because the boy will go all ape sh on you, it s her home and she asked you to leave, Jaeger says Get The eff Out He steps back and drapes a long arm over my shoulders, pulling me close My heart slows, my breathing calms Cali is an impatient one especially when it comes to the naughty and Jaeger doesn t get his clothes off fast enough, damn it His pants are still on I flip open the snap and push down with my feet My knees drop to the side and his fat tip rubs my entrance I squeeze his a He s huge and silky and I want him inside.

    I received a free copy of this book via Fiona s Book Reviews in return for my honest opinion This was a really good read that forced me to remember what it felt like to be twenty one Yikes.Cali, the main character is on the cusp of the rest of her life, battling with all of the insecurities and uncertainties of being a new adult Some NA stories I ve read have me rolling my eyes and grinding my teeth with frustration at the main character, unable to understand their juvenile hang ups This author totally nailed those feelings and brought them to life in a way that had my belly churning anxiously on Cali s behalf This wasn t a comfortable read at times we experience the full force of her insecurities after her boyfriend dumps her and she can t figure out whether the guy giving her goosebumps is even interested and whether her friend is all that she seems But this story is about than that Cali has spent her whole life trying to make the grade for law school Now she s achieved that goal and she s all set to go, she s questioning everything about her goals and what she really wants to do in life There are no easy answers for Cali and her thoughtfulness and introspection really made me reflect on life choices too.I wouldn t want to give the impression that this is a completely heavy and angst inducing read because the real toe curlingly good love story in this also had me completely engrossed Jaeger, a friend of Cali s brother is a huge, hulking viking figure with his blond good looks and naturally built physique The chemistry between them built up to a frenzy and the sex was deliciously steamy.I really enjoyed reading this one This story is complete and the next in the series deals with other characters I m really looking forward to reading them This one is recommended for anyone who likes a good NA story, but actually I think it would also appeal to people who usually avoid them this is NA written for grown ups.

    DEEP BLUE achieves something special I m not just talking about the fact that Jules Barnard makes fishing yeah, that s right, fishing incredibly sexy trust me on this one, you ll be face fanning What s different is that she doesn t give us the typical damaged heroine in need of rescue Sure, there s a strapping hot guy, Jaeger Lane hottest NA hero name ever yep pretty much WHO CARVES WOOD AND IS A SNOWBOARDER AND RESPECTS WOMEN Sorry, I had a Jaeger moment.But Cali is strong Smart Comfortable in her sexuality She has it all It s justnot what she wants Deep Blue is about having the courage to follow your dreams, even if those dreams seem a little crazy I appreciated the fun, flirty tone and the Lake Tahoe setting was perfect escapism.I like reading a wide range of New Adult, but sometimes the McDamage aspects seem a little too heavy handed DEEP BLUE is light, but it still has just the right heart Bonus points for heroine s awesome friendship with bestie Gen It appears the author has a second book planned telling Gen s story next Looking forward to watching this debut author.

    I don t read too much contemporary romance I m of a paranormal sci fi romance junky , but I really, really liked this story First of all, the writing is fluid, clear and easy to follow The characters have depth and the plot is filled with real world drama that s very relate able yet not at all boring.And I love the unique setting Lake Tahoe area Since it s a New Adult, the tone is mature, so there isn t any annoying lingering teen angst The characters are in their early twenties, and Jules Barnard does a fantastic job at portraying their growth from care free, naive college grad types to full blown, responsible adults while still maintaining their youthful free spirits The romance between the two main characters develops slowly but once it gets there, is filled with so much achingly sweet emotion that I instantly became invested in their relationship I constantly rooted for them.And now I m excited to read the next story to see how the intriguing secondary characters will get their happy endings

    I received a copy in exchange for a honest review 2.5 out of 5 starsI will keep this short and not so sweet I wanted to love Cali, I really did, however I found her to be a huge contradiction She s outspoken and witty, yet she can t seem to have a necessary conversation with her BFF, her brother, her mom or either of her love interests The entire story line with Kate was stupid From her just showing up on their date, Jaeger moving her in without any proof of the childdespite the fact that he knew she was a complete liar, to her just maxing out Jaeger s credit cards, and he acted so nonchalant about all of it I gave it 2.5 stars simply because there was some witty banter, but overall I just wasn t feeling it.

    I was looking for New Adult book that was lighter on the angst and a friend recommended I read Barnard s THE DEEP BLUE I have to say that I absolutely loved this book I burned through it in one sitting, unable to go to bed until I reached the end THE DEEP BLUE is a page turner, amazing read with great characters and a strong female heroine that you can t help but get behind I can t wait until the next book comes out Barnard is a new author to watch out for.
