Shallow by Georgia Cates Blog Tour Guest Post

Payton Archer's best friend, Claire, strives to be perfect in every way. Payton doesn't and this is her story.

Nick Hawke likes his car fast and his girls even faster. He blows through females quicker than his muscle car races down the "The 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, adrenaline 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 aren'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?


What has been your fave read of the year and why? 

There have been so many great reads this year. Asking me to name one is like telling me to choose which one of my children I love more and I usually avoid naming which book is my favorite. However, I have read some exceptionally great books this year and they deserve to be recognized. These fall in no particular order.
1) The Wild Ones” by M. Leighton. 

This was a change in genre for Michelle and she truly rocked it. She found her niche when she wrote this, her first adult contemporary. She went on to do it again with “Down to You” and put a twist on it that still has my head spinning. 
2) “On Dublin Street” by Samantha Young. 

I loved this one because it was full of romance, hot sex and comedy. Good grief...what a combination. 

3) “Defiance” by Shelly Crane. 

This was the third installment of The Significance Series and did not disappoint. The last installment, “Independence” will be released in December and I can’t wait. Another great read from Shelly was “Consume” from The Devoured Series. Man, this lady can write. 4) “Indebted” by Amy Bartol. 

This was the third installment of The Premonition Series. I absolutely fell in love with Evie and who wouldn’t love a series where Twinkies are involved. The fourth installment will be out on November 30th.

I am a wife, mother of two daughters and a labor and delivery nurse. I have recently added Paranormal Romance Writer to my list of things to keep be busy, but I am ecstatic to release my debut novel, Blood of Anteros, the first book in The Vampire Agápe Series.

Like others that enjoy a great story of paranormal romance, I am easily bored by the tale of an obtainable, ordinary romance and was inspired to create The Vampire Agápe Series. When I am not tied up with my family or delivering babies, I am working feverishly on the second book in The Vampire Agápe Series.
