Oh, who was she kidding? Emma knew that going to the tattoo shop with her best friend, Allie, would result in getting badgered until she ended up with some sort of needle piercing her flesh in one way or another. What she didn’t plan on was ending up face-first on the floor of the shop with a busted lip. Or doing it in front of the hottest guy she’d seen since…well, ever.

Mortified, Emma never thought she’d ever step foot back in Skin Deep again. But fate, with a little help from Emma’s flighty best friend and a chance encounter with a fudge bar, steps in. Now Emma’s torn between taking a chance on getting her heart broken by the enigmatic, gorgeous Lucas, and playing it safe with good ol’ trusty B.O.B. 

Lucas lets Emma know that he gets what he wants, and what he wants is her. When Emma gives in and quits pushing him away, she’s surprised at how quickly the walls around her heart crumble. She’s even more surprised that her unconventional, zany family just endears her even more to him.

But no one knows there’s someone that wants her more, and they’ll stop at nothing to get her.

*Recommended for readers 18+ due to HOT sexual encounters, adult situations, and language.

I have to say I  really really liked Skin Deep. I give it 2 thumbs up! I discovered and read it back in May when I woke up to a Facebook message from my friend Brei saying “read this one” and the Amazon link for it. I didn’t even question it, I just one clicked. And I’m glad I did. Skin Deep is a story full of comedy, love, friendship, a touch o’the angst and a ton o’the hot sex…like melt your panties and and sweat out your blow out hot sex. I liked the characters in this one, they’re all normal, down to earth kind of people and seeing the way they all interact, laugh and joke with each other is like being with your own friends. I thought Emma and her inner thoughts were hilarious and real, real meaning things I’ve thought/said myself; she was easy to relate to. Luke now, was tall, tattooed and sexy with a hint of a BDSM streak thrown in there. He is a perfect dominating alpha…I’d let him ink me whenever, wherever and however he wanted…there’s probably more I’d let Luke’s kinky ass do to me whenever and wherever he wanted lol. There’s a little angst and drama in here in the form a creepy mccreepster stalker who has the hots for Emma and seeing how that played out had me gnawing at my cuticles. Since May I’ve read Skin Deep twice and still enjoyed it just as much as I did the first time around. The story had me up all night reading and again, I adored the characters.  Now I know the title says Skin Deep #1 but please note this IS a standalone book. You do get a 100% complete story between Emma and Luke here; the subsequent books will be about the other characters we’ve met. I’ve recommended this book for the past two months and will continue to do so, it really is great! I look forward to the next book in the series.

I give Skin Deep 4 sexy stars!
