Skin Game was one of the most kick-ass surprises and awesome paranormal romantic suspense reads of 2004 ½ stars – Paranormal Romance/Romantic Suspense
Skin Game was one of the most kick-ass surprises and awesome paranormal romantic suspense reads of 2009, so the second book in the Skin series had a lot to live up to. Although it didn’t completely blow me away like its predecessor, Skin Tight is still a gripping read with Ava Gray’s intelligent, unique writing, fascinating characters, an intriguing plot, and scorching hot love scenes.
It has an intricate plot that’s challenging to summarize, and it’s all revealed in such an interesting, unpredicted way that I wouldn’t want to give away any spoilers, anyway. But the basic premise of the story involves the hero, a man with many identities who’s cursed with an exceptional ability, seeking revenge against those responsible, and his unexpected, complicated reunion with the one woman he hasn’t been able to forget since he betrayed her in Skin Game, who poses a threat to his plans.
Skin Tight is a sexy, compelling read with a perfect combination of paranormal and suspense elements that should appeal to fans of both PNR and romantic suspense, especially readers who prefer romance books that are on the steamy side. 4 ½...almost 5 stars!
1) Better have about 6 hours of uninterrupted free time since you simp5 stars – Romantic Suspense/Paranormal Romance
Before Reading Survival Checklist:
1) Better have about 6 hours of uninterrupted free time since you simply won’t want to put it down! 2) Be sure to have a fan or a glass of ice water nearby ‘cause you’ll need to cool off! 3) Might want to make sure you have a nail file handy for when you’ve chewed your nails into ragged stubs!
Whew...What an awesome, intense, sexy, violent, edgy, gritty, explosive, suspenseful, hot, action-packed thrill-ride! I loved it! Skin Game kind of reminded me of Anne Stuart’s Ice series, especially the tough, broody, badass, alpha, anti-hero assassin, only with a slight paranormal element revolving around the heroine having an unusual ability related to touch (hence the title). So, if you like romantic suspense a bit on the dark side with unique, great characters, verrry steamy sex, and lots of exciting action, then definitely check this out! 5 stars!...more
