4 - "I'm going to take my time with you..." Stars!

Kimberley Kincaid start off her new Station Seventeen series with a really enjoyable romance between to battered souls, with a hefty dose of romantic suspense on the side to keep you on your toes.



It took me a little while to get into Skin Deep, not because the writing and story-line weren’t appealing but more of the fact that the opening chapters felt very similar to the last book I read by the author, also funnily enough set around a Fire House,

4.5 stars

A Romantic Suspense … not exactly what I thought this was going to be. But, once everything started coming together, as I got to know the characters and understand the storyline, I was thrilled that I took the time and read this story. Kimberly Kincaid did a fantastic job of keeping me totally engaged and interested in where the story was going. She surprised me with a few twists and turns and delighted me with Kellen and Isabella.

WOW... I honestly wasn't expecting this at all!!! Seriously SMOKIN' HOT and lots of ACTION!!! I absolutely LOVED Kellan (always love me some dirty-talking ALPHA) and I have to say that while Isabella came off as very balls-to-the-wall at the start, I adored her in the end!!!

Can't wait to read the next book in this serious!!!

Overall, this was more suspense than romance in my opinion. Very accurate, I'm assuming, in terms of police and firefighter procedures. I couldn't, unfortunately, connect with Isabella. She was pretty cold emotionally and held most everyone at arm's length. Kellan was a likable character - I'm all for ex-military, sexy firemen. And despite his personal trauma, he had her back. A lot of the book focuses on the chase after a sadistic maniac, and that was interesting, but I still found it easy to b ...more

Kimberly Kincaid not only kicks off a new series with Skin Deep she also jumps into a new genre with it and does so with a bang. I’m a sucker for her books, I make no apologies for it. But what she has delivered with Skin Deep blew me away. To say I loved this book is a huge understatement. It’s flipping awesome.

This book was so much more than I expected. I knew going in that I would love it and that at some point I would want to pack my bags and move there. But what I didn’t expect was for KK t

Kimberly Kincaid surprised me with this one. I’ve come to expect many firefighting books to be about arson-related cases or about bush-firefighting, but 'Skin Deep’ deals more about sex-trafficking crimes and sexual slavery than it is about firefighting itself. It works very well as a standalone, even if it’s a full-fledged continuation of Liliana Hart’s Kindle Worlds Mackenzie series, which Kincaid was a part of.

’Skin Deep’ is quite a ride from start to end, with a deliciously filthy villain (

After I finally started this one, because hey I had to stare at that gorgeous cover for a while, I absolutely could not put it down. Ms. Kincaid has decided to dip her toe in the romantic suspense genre pool and she does it in spectacular fashion! The writing is great, the twists and turns in the story hooked me right away, and the romance that develops between the incredibly yummy firefighter Kellan Walker and Police detective Isabella Moreno is perfection. These two had a not so great history ...more

Loved IT!!!!!! Just WOW!!! Kimberly Kincaid has done it yet again. An absolutely fantastic new series. Kellen and Isabella are on the hunt for answers for a crime that needs solved quickly before more die. The chemistry between them is smokin hot. This book had action in it but I felt like it needed more. Kellen and Isabella both come to a truce you can say. I highly recommend reading this book. I look to read the next book in this new series.

Kellan Walker of the Remington Station 17 Fire Department is a man of action, and he’s got his hands full when a fire alarm that looked upends his life. When investigating the premises afterwards, Kellan finds a metal box containing photographs of women and earrings: it’s not just a fire in an abandoned building anymore, it’s become a crime scene. And this means that Kellan will have to face Detective Isabella Moreno again. Three months before, Kellan and Isabella had clashed when Isabella had f ...more

Skin Deep is the first of a new series by Kimberly Kincaid. Her previous books have been romance, but this new series amps it up with suspense added. I love her romance books so I was excited to see that she was trying something different. This book has the perfect blend of romance and suspense.

Skin Deep by Kimberly Kincaid is one wild emotional rollercoaster. The writing is well-done, the research that went it to the book is clearly present, and the story itself will capture your attention from the very beginning and not let up until the end.

What can I say, but that Ms Kincaid continues to blow my mind with her talent as a writer. Skin Deep is book one of her new series, Station Seventeen. We were introduced to our main characters, ex-Army Ranger, turned firefighter, Kellan Walker, and Isabella Moreno, a detective who a few months previously, had attempted to assist his sister after Kylie has witnessed a murder but instead, almost got her killed.

Wow! This is such a great book. Hot firefighters, creepy bad guy, and smoking chemistry all add up to a great read. Months ago, Kellen, sexy firefighter, teamed up with detective Isabella Moreno to protect his sister Kylie from bad guys (Kylie's story is Deep Trouble, which I highly recommend reading because its a great story but this can easily be read as a stand-a-lone). When things went bad and Kylie was almost killed Kellen blamed Isabella and hasn't spoken to her since. Kellen finds evidenc ...more

Fantastic. New series. Book 1 in Station Seventeen has it all. Romance, Suspense.
When Kellan Walker finds a box of photos after a fire has been put out, and the cops are called that last person he expects to see is Isabella Moreno. It seems she's going to be looking into what it all means. Her surpvisor wants them to evaluate things. He's not sure it will be easy after the last time he saw her.

This is the first book in a new series. I had a really hard time getting into this book. It wasn’t a bad book but I just couldn’t connect with the story. It was slow to start for me and I found myself distracted and slightly bored with the pacing. Kellan and Isabella were a good couple and thankfully there were no real TSTL (Too Stupid To Live) moments from either one of them. I just didn’t connect with them. The ending was a tad bi

I was a bit surprised by this book, but ultimately bored with it. I liked the fact that the author went for more of a suspense angle to the story, which is new for this author, but her characterization ended up dragging the story down for me.

I found it very difficult to connect with both Kellan and Isabella, and their reversal from enemies to lovers wasn't entirely believable for me. The story was slow moving and repetitive, and I really had to struggle my way through it.

I loved this book. It is the first in a new series. We get to meet everyone in the Remington Fire Department as well the people at the Remington Police Department.

Kellan Walker and Isabella Moreno are both tough as nails. He’s a former Army Ranger sniper, currently a firefighter. He deals with his PTSD by stuffing his emotions in a box in his head, making himself numb. He is confident, strong and supportive.

Isabella is a cop. An event from her past has her just blocking off her emotions and kee
