My Thoughts...

This was quite a good read that these authors gives the readers. It was quite interesting seeing Dorian Gallagher and Charlotte [Charlie] Herrick becoming friends and then on to lovers. With Dorian having to leave LA to Tennessee due so some of his previous actions taken with a married woman. So, now he is in

I've enjoyed this story.
I liked the suspense,the hot scenes,the hot-tempered heroine who holds her own with the Hero.

Charlie is a great tattoo artist and that plus her fashion sense make her my favorite character.
Dorian is depicted as a playboy at the beginning but I appreciated how he changes when he is sure he wants a committed relationship.

This was the first time I've read these authors and I'm sure it won't be the last.I've liked their writing and their words kept my interest from the first

I decided to give this book a try since I do love tats and Charlie/Charlotte sounded like a pretty strong female lead. The rich boy theme is so overdone but I decided to risk it. To me this book was like watching two inch worms slowly crawl down a long driveway. The book was well written it just had too many unnecessary descriptions of the most mundane things the characters were doing. “He got up from the bar

Under His Skin by J Haney

One thing I love in a book is a strong female lead. With Charlie, we have that and more. She’s feisty, one of a kind, is very artistic, packs a gun and drives a big truck and motorcycle. Charlie is a tattoo artist in TN.

Dorian is originally from LA and is the ‘Amusement Park Prince’ from the family owned business. Due to a little indiscretion in LA, his family sends him to TN to open Gallagher’s Galaxy Fun Park, but because of what he did, he is sent there with a bodygu

A great read. This is a story of Dorian, millionaire prince of amusement parks with some questionable moral judgement and decisions, given him a bad boy reputation and made him go into hiding (with his bodyguard Conner) in the mountains of Tennessee under the pretense of over seeing the development of the new amusement park there.
Charlie is a sassy and strong independent woman who has grown up in the small town in Tennessee and is a tattoo artist in her family owned tattoo shop. She is a true c

Sounded like a great story to read and finally got the book and was not disappointed.
Story follows Charlie who is a tattoo artist among other artistic mediums, at her family's shop in Gatlinburg, TN.
Dorian is part of the family amusement park empire and he's banished from LA to TN to head up the new park there. He's come across Charlie and has her do his back tat.
They spend time together and get to talking and one thing leads to another.

Dorian wants a tattoo on his back, so his body guard Connor goes to check out the best place for him to go get it done. Connor finds Charlie, (Charlotte Rose Herrick).

Charlie was determined she didn't need a man until he came along. Who wouldn't love a man who can whisk you off to Italy at the drop of a hat? But that man is so infuriating, and he has a shadow who is incredibly annoying (yet lovable). Then there is her family who is hovering around every corner. A comic relief in this summer heat. Who wouldn't fall in love with a guy like Dorian. My favorite line in the whole book of which there are some really great ones, reads::

S.I. Hayes and J.Haney has done it again with another well written novel. If you like romance, drama and humor this is the novel for any reader to pick up. S.I. Hayes and J.Haney know just how they want the characters to sound and what the readers want them to sound like. Charlie and Dorian are opposites completely and truly do prove that opposites attract. Between the family drama and work drama nothing seemed to keep these two lovers apart from the first to the last page.

Under His Skin by J. Haney is a Contemporary Erotic Romance. At twenty-six Dorian Gallagher has it all. Money, power, he’s used to fast cars and faster women. Charlotte Herrick is a free spirit. She drives a big truck, rides a motorcycle and carries a gun. Her life was hers. Until she meets Dorian Gallagher, now she doesn’t know which way is up. Lots of action and adventure and well detailed steamy sex scenes.

Hillbilly meets city romance. Fairly good, just not my cup of tea. The bad language (swearing w/ the F bomb and taking the Lord's name in vain), sexual innuendos and trash talking ruined the book for me. This was definitely not a sweet hot romance, but more gritty than I expected. These people sure do love their "shine" as in moonshine. At times the book just seemed to drag for me. It is a full length novel. The last quarter of the book had a few word errors.

I thought I was going to be over the moon for this book because I'm fairly local to Gatlinburg and the description pulled me in. The bad news is that I wasn't able to get 16% into the book before I had to stop. I'm always one for details in a book to bring the story to life but this one has too many and about random things so that it just seemed like filler. I wish I could have finished it but I wasn't able to.

Also, she is a tattoo artist - I love that!!! This is a typical woman that Dorian goes for. Dorian is this playboy. I feel like he isn't a typical guy she goes for.

A bit unrealistic at times. Charlie is a badass girly girl that does tattoos and has plenty of guns, was taught to cook by Paula Deen, and is perfect in her tutus and pink hair. she meets a rich spoiled boy they fall in love, have sex every minute, engage in plenty of overly dramatized arguments and end up happily ever after. *rolls eyes*

Quick read, just needed the scenes to be a little less heroic.

Charlie is a tattooist and she loves to draw. She met Connor when he came in and looked at her books and decided her work was good Connor was there for Dorian who is there for his family business. He is tatted up. Their relationship is grew more intense and along with their friendship it helps their relationship. They have a few surprises along the way. I loved the last chapter so funny.

I’ve read several books written by S.I. Haney & J. Haney; she has done a good job at writing a good book. She is becoming one of my favorite authors and I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

A Good Read

This is another good Book. I really enjoyed reading “Under His Skin” by J. Haney & S. I. Hayes. This is a really well written, interesting book with lovely characters, who have great chemistry and interaction that pulls you in and keeps you engrossed in their story. This is an Entertaining, Must Read Romance that is worthy of your time and I would recommend it to anyone. I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. Looking forward to reading more from J Haney & S. I. Hayes

Stopped reading after Dorian said he's not a fag. Seriously?! In this day and age, for a grown man to use that term, and in a derogatory tone, too?! Can't get behind any writing or any author that used this term in that manner. I'd give this negative stars if I could.

I received an ARC via Booksprout for an honest review.
