In Robin York’s provocative new novel, two young ex-lovers find themselves together again in the shadow of tragedy—and an intense, undeniable attraction.

Caroline still dreams about West—his warm skin, his taut muscles, his hand sliding down her stomach. Then she wakes up and she’s back to reality: West is gone. And before he left, he broke her heart.

Then, out of the blue, West calls in crisis. A tragedy has hit his family—a family that is already a fractured mess. Caroline knows what she has to do. Without discussion, without stopping to think, she is on a plane, flying to his side to support him in any way he needs.

They’re together again, but things are totally different. West looks edgy, angry at the world. Caroline doesn’t fit in. She should be back in Iowa, finalizing her civil suit against the ex-boyfriend who posted their explicit pictures on a revenge porn website. But here she is, deeply into West, wrapped up in him, in love with him—still.

They fought the odds once. Losing each other was hard. But finding their way back to each other couldn’t be harder.

Quotes & Awards

  • [Robin] York’s beautiful prose and vivid descriptions enhance the realism and impact of Caroline and West’s story. Deeper and Harder are sensual and profoundly moving. The books are told in first-person from both Caroline’s and West’s POVs, and I sat on the emotional roller coaster right beside them as West learns to hold tight to Caroline and embrace life to the fullest. . . . They are books I will cherish. Lea Franczak, USA Today
     
  • [York] again brings exquisite writing to contemporary New Adult romance with Harder, the sequel to her much-acclaimed Deeper. . . . As with all this author’s work, the prose itself is on a higher plane than readers of New Adult have come to expect. With searing metaphor and visceral descriptions of love and all its attendant pains, Harder will be loved by many . . . and talked about by everyone. New York Journal of Books
     
  • Part two of Caroline and West’s story will really evoke emotions from readers, once they get past the steam factor included in this powerful novel. RT Book Reviews
  • Bursting with chemistry, emotion, and heart, Caroline and West’s story will take your breath away! Katy Evans, New York Times bestselling author of the REAL series
  • Robin York writes exceptionally real characters in achingly real situations. Harder had a hold on my heart and didn’t let go until the very end. New York Times bestselling author Cora Carmack
  • “Bursting with chemistry, emotion, and heart, Caroline and West’s story will take your breath away!”

    Katy Evans, New York Times bestselling author of the REAL series

  • “Robin York writes exceptionally real characters in achingly real situations. Harder had a hold on my heart and didn’t let go until the very end.”

    Cora Carmack, New York Times bestselling author of Losing It

  • “Powerful…York makes sure to include a roller-coaster ride of twists and turns that never ceases.”

    RT Book Reviews

  • “New adult stories are all about people in the first flush of adulthood grasping the reins of their own lives. In Harder, Caroline and West are facing genuine challenges: the aftermath of Caroline’s issues experienced in Deeper; West’s neglectful mother and dysfunctional family; becoming surrogate parents to Frankie, even when they aren’t quite together; and all while picking up the threads of a romance that is nearly broken. Watching Caroline and West reach for the future, and for each other, is one terrific story.”

Writing as Ruthie Knox, she is a New York Times bestselling author of contemporary romance, including RITA-nominated About Last Night and Room at the Inn. She moonlights as a mother, makes killer salted caramels, and sorts out thorny plot problems while running, hiking, or riding her bike.
