Depths by Steph Campbell

Depths (Lengths, #2)
Good Reads Summary
Depths by Steph Campbell

Do you believe in love at first phone call?

Cohen Rodriquez, Deo’s hilarious, über responsible best friend in LENGTHS got dumped by his longtime girl because he’s ‘not impulsive enough,’ and he's burned up.

But maybe, just maybe, she’s more right than he wants to admit. So he starts to date.
A lot.
But no one really feels like the one. And the more girls he dates, the more Cohen’s convinced she isn’t really out there.

Luckily he has Maren—the girl with the sexy voice who always cracks the best jokes. They’ve been talking daily for a year…on the phone. What started as all work soon blooms into friendship. Then she asks him.

Do you want to meet?

He's scared out of his mind to ruin the one easy, fun relationship he has going for him. But he takes the plunge, and things are just fine, totally easy and comfortable.

Except that they both sense it's not strictly platonic...there is an undeniable attraction and absolute raw chemistry between them…and every time they're in the same room, that attraction gets deeper and harder to ignore.

Maren could be the best thing that’s ever happened to Cohen… Or she could send his carefully compartmentalized life into a tailspin.

Cohen has to decide if he’s ready to let go of his comfortable fantasy and embrace the one girl who might be able to change his luck in love.

My thoughts
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I'm keeping this short:

I like that the lead is a lot like DEO from LENGTHS; the real guy who doesn’t have it all together but tries his best anyway. The lead in this one reads like such a stand up guy, all sensitive, aware, and directed. Except somehow the bitchy one was right: he was a tad boring and staid. Things change quickly when he’s dumped. This set up’s a bit too typical, but hey.. I’ll take it. I like the bond that exists between him and the new girl… there’s an attraction there, and it’s when they finally meet that things start moving along. I also like how the drama doesn’t drown everything else out. She’s her baggage as does he, but they’re not buried in the angst of their present (too much. Well, at least the guy wasn’t). And if there were any angsty moments, there’s the after that had me reading on still. Of how she wants things and he wants things and they’re both young and doing something about it.

So things went from cute to sexy… and yeah, this was an OK read.
