Recommends it for: Anyone who loves a good romance with great chemistry.
This was the first book I have read by Tori Carrington and I am now addicted to her books. Skin Deep was an excellent read and I loved the chemistry between the main characters and all the *HOT* Scenes.

What I learned is this author is a very good writer. She builds great chemistry between her main characters. After reading Skin Deep I went out and bought some of her other books and can't wait to read them.
Romancing the Book
Skin Deep by Tori Carrington is a classic friends to lovers story. Kyra goes through boyfriends like they are Kleenex and Michael, her best-friend and co-worker, sits on the side lines and pines for her.

I think I need to leave off the hokey romance stories for a while. This one just didn't tickle any of my fancies, and I typically like the authors' style of writing. "Skin Deep" is a friends-to-lovers story, with best friend Michael watching Kyra move through dates like changing socks. Kyra decides on a Jenny Jones makeover, things get hot and heavy between the besties, and the rest, as they say, is history.

My main disappointment with the book were the characters - Kyra was annoying, self-cente
Corey Freeman
Steamy, but not too interesting of a plot. Predictable.
(Romance/soft porn 2002) Light, quick read but a fun run. Kyra is best friends with Michael, but predictably the attraction between them is overwhelming and very physical. Not a whole lot of plot but enjoyable mind candy.

Author Tori Carrington is the penname of husband and wife writing team Lori and Tony Karayianni.

Hands down, penning a bio is always the most difficult writing challenge we take on. What do we say? What do we keep a secret? Considering we've been writing together for over twenty-two years...well, that reveals more about us than anything you'll likely read here. We're fiction writers simply because
