Guest Post♥Excerpt♥Giveaways: Shallow by Georgia Cates

Nick Hawke likes his car fast and his girls even faster. He blows through females quicker than his muscle car races down the drag strip in Collinsville and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Determined to avoid the devastation he has watched his father endure in the aftermath of his mother leaving, he believes there is no room in his life or his heart for a relationship lasting more than one night. He seeks happiness in things that won’t let him cars, parties and one night stands. To his absolute dismay, all of that changes when he unexpectedly runs into an old friend and is introduced to Payton Archer, the first girl he ever wanted for more than one night. There’s only one catch...she is completely immune to him and his smooth talking ways. 

Payton Archer is looking for what Claire has with Jessie, but she has given up on finding least until she leaves for college in the Fall because she is certain that is where she will find the perfect guy to fit into her perfect world. She plans on Summer being nothing but three uneventful months of fun, but it turns out to be anything but ordinary when Payton is introduced to Nick Hawke, one of Jessie’s old Collinsville friends. She is shocked by her immediate and intense attraction for “Hawke” because nothing about him is what Payton is looking for. Sure, he’s hot and sexy but he comes from Collinsville and that is definitely not on her list of prerequisites. Everything about him makes Payton’s heart speed because he is exciting and dangerous, but his fast car and the dangerous chances he takes isn’t what scares Payton the’s the way Nick Hawke makes her feel every time he looks at her. Can Payton find that moment of total fearlessness and make the decision to leave the safe, shallow end of love to risk going under completely? 

Shallow Excerpt #4

I sat up on the edge of her bed and watched her while she finished packing her bag. “When will your parents be back?”
“The day after tomorrow.”

“Could I talk you into spending tomorrow with me since they won’t be here?”
She grinned as she looked at me. “Possibly.”
“Then you’ll possibly need to pack something casual like a T-shirt, jeans and sneakers.”
That peaked her curiosity. “And why do I need to be casual?”
“Because those tall ass heels and short skirts you like to wear won’t be too appropriate for what I have planned.”
“Ooh...mysterious.” She went into her walk in closet and came out holding a T-shirt with a pair of jeans thrown over her arm. She folded the shirt and put it in a bag I was sure cost more than my entire wardrobe. “I’m dying to know. Can I have a little hint?”
I was titanium and there was no way I was giving her one little detail. “Nope.”
She put her bag on her dresser and came over to stand between my knees. She poked her bottom lip out at me and I was positive it wasn’t the first time she had used her beautiful pouty face to get what she wanted. “Not even one little ‘ole hint?”
She sat across my lap with her arm around my shoulders and nibbled my earlobe. Although I recognized it for the tactical move it was, she was irresistible and I couldn’t refrain myself from giving in to her just a little bit. “Okay. One hint and that’s all you’re gettin’. I’m going to show you one of the things I like to do for fun.”
She moved further down on my neck. “So, I get a glimpse into Nick Hawke’s life. Tell me more.”
“Nope, you’ll have to wait and find out tomorrow.”

Texting conversation between Nick and Payton from Shallow.
Why make up a fictitious texting conversation when I have a real one? This conversation occurs after a rather steamy night between Nick and Payton and is taken directly from Shallow.

“Got to T’s ok?”
“Yes. Telling T about our night minus the titillating details.”
“I loved the titillating details.”
“Me 2. UR so bad.”
“That’s what they tell me.”
“Stoked about tom.”
“Want to have more titillating details tom?”
“Be careful. Making no more promises.”
“You promise?”
“I promise no more promises.”
“Good. See U tom at 12. Your house?”
“Yes. Until then...thinking about titillating details.”
