Desperate times call for desperate measures.
That’s what they say, right?
Well, I guess it must be true because I’m desperate.
And I’m about to take desperate measures.
That’s why I’m standing at his door, preparing to face him. Even though we are no longer what we used to be. Even though he doesn’t love me as he once did.
The girl he loved is no more, she vanished.
So did he.

I received and ARC for this book. What a good second chance Love Story. Fermin was hysterical!!! A lot of twists and turns in this read. Tara and Joel were hot. Joel’s alphaness at certain times annoyed me like when he was against her pursuing her dreams other that I loved that these two characters never stopped loving each other!! Great read!!

I don't even know where to start with this novel. I haven't disliked something so much in a long, long, long, time and it bums me out to have to revisit all those negative feelings for this review.
But I have to since I've waited long enough to fulfill my reviewing promise.
As soon as I saw the cover to this novel, I became obsessed with it. I had to have it in my hands as soon as possible and I couldn't request it fast enough! I was so excited for i

In the dedication of this book, the author states "enjoy the ride" and it was a ride indeed! I was very torn on whether to give this book 3 or 4 stars, so I am giving it a solid 3.5! I really did enjoy how this story unfolded and how the main characters developed despite their initial introduction.

Another new to me author and I love it!

Loved how this verse sets the tone of the whole story.

Whispers of My Skin is the story of Tara and Joel and what a story it is.

Tara is dealing with a world of hurt on her shoulders and you get glimpses of something more that is going on with her, but you don't really know until Susana decides to share it with you and she does so spectacularly.  Tara knows what her f

Well, that was nothing like I was expecting.... and I loved it. Such a great take on a country/western romance. There is always some kind of mystery or unanswered question lingering throughout this book. I was definitly captivated the entire time, sitting on the edge of my seat.

And can we talk about Joel....mhm he is definitly alpha cowboy while showing his vulnerability at the right times. You know what they say... "save a horse, ride a cowboy."

Tara is a different kind of heroine too. To me she

A true story of second chance; It does not matter how much Joel and Tara went through their love was always present. A story that catches you from the beginning and you can not stop reading. Joel is a 100% sexy cowboy who dominates everything in his step .. Tara I loved his strength and determination.

This story teaches us that no matter what circumstances life presents us with, we must always fight for what we want, it does not matter if at first it does not turn out to be the right moment and

Whispers of my Skin was a slow burn, friends to lovers book featuring Tara and Joel. They haven't seen in each other in awhile but as fate would have it, they are back in each others lives. And to make it even better- a true southern Cowboy read - who doesn't love a cowboy rancher!

I did enjoy this book- the beginning did a great job of leaving just enough intrigue to keep you reading. You have to know what could events could have possibly transpired that has left Tara in the predicament she is i

"Our beginning was written in the stars, but our ending has never been revealed. Until now."

I loved the storyline. It was so captivating that once I started reading it I couldn’t stop. There were so many unexpected twists that happened that there was no way I could stop. Add suspense and mystery to a romance book and I’m done for.

I really liked Joel and Tara. I enjoyed reading about them and their journey of falling in love again after. And of course we can’t forget Fermin! He is amazing!! Ever

There were many great parts of this book. The reunion was very bittersweet and made you want to read more. The attraction between the characters came across well.

For me, the constant hot/cold love/hate, it kind of gave me whiplash. I think a prologue of the past would of benefitted the story instead of the snippets throughout to give you better insight.

It definately has potential though.

I absolutely loved this book, it had so many obstacles that Tara and Joel had to get through.
Their story is full of suspense, drama, yet so much love between the two. They were meant for each other.
So many times through this book it had me thinking, "Oh my, can they really get through this?"

Joel is an alpha male who gets things done his way. The perfect book boyfriend.
& Tara is a spitfire that doesn't let herself get pushed around.

Can these two get their second chance and learn to lean on ea

It's such an amazing book. I loved every second. Second chance romance with mystery intertwined. The back and forth between the two main characters is just right. I was lucky enough to receive a advanced review copy.

"So I am right, there was unfinished business between the two of you. Well, as I always say, save a horse, ride a cowboy, especially a smokin’ hot one.”

My first ever Susana Mohel book. I'd like to say I feel in love with her writing but it wasn't the case and I'm not one to lie. The story had a lot going for it though.
There was so much feeling and chemistry between these two, there were crazy things happening, secrets being uncovered, crazy people popping out everywhere. I

This is a story of second chances, of never giving up on love. Whispers Of My Skin is my first read from Susana Mohel. I love adding new authors to me to my yearly read list and this one was a beautiful love story. A story to make you see that when true love strikes it will stay with you forever no matter how much you tried to denied it or how much time has passed.

Not every book deserves a review, not every book needs a review, not every book earns a review but this one not only Deserves one but it earned one.

If you thought, that this book was your classic second-chance on love story that is all beautiful roses without any thorns, you could not be more wrong from reality.

Susana puts Joel and Tara through the worst scenarios you can think of from the first chapter and it doesn’t stop until the epilogue, you name it it’s there.

Wow.... Whispers of my Skin really blew me away! Susan did an amazing job capturing me with an outstanding story about second chances and True Love. The romance, angst, and chemistry between Tara and Joel was absolute Perfection! The intensity between them was * fan yourself* STEAMY! Tara is at times is too stubborn for her own good and blind to what’s going on around her and Joel can be an overbearing alpha with a temper. Oh and let’s not forget about the family drama and suspense that had me a ...more

Whispers of My Skin
by Susana Mohel

This is a second chance romance that was a very slow burn.

Tara Rhett was the daughter a successful family and fell in love at a young age. She gave herself to the hired help (Joel Sadger) and thought they shared a true love that would last a lifetime.

Once daddy finds out, things take a dramatic turn. The love once promised by Joel becomes a thing of the past. His disappearance left Tara heartbroken and feeling her life was without reason.

It's almost 5 stars and I will tell you why...
It has LOT elements that I like in a book, like cowboys...!!! a so "hard", will, surly and so f***ing sensual guy, horses and passion. A very good western story (I love wester stories) and even though its a second chance story (im not so into second chances) was lovely and refresh.
Sometimes I really hated Tara, she was so childish and at the next moment a "eats men" but then I realized that everything has a reason.
On the other hand you have a very se

I have never really read a western type romance before, but if they are like this one I will definitely pick up another one, or five! A tale of love lost and then found again are always the best types of love stories. And the amount of drama and twists in this book is just an added bonus. It seems in every chapter our love birds have to face and new drama and new challenge to face, but you can see how they get through it together and help each other out.
So as fast as the story and characters go

My first book from this author and she has written a great second chance romance that will entice you in and keep you captivated with Tara and the hot and sexy Cowboy Joel.

She delivered a story with the perfect amount of romance and angst, mixed with the hot chemistry between Joel and Tara.

The twists and turns, the secrets and family scandals all keep you completely gripped.

I am looking forward to seeing what Susana brings us next

What an entertaining book. This is a second chance romance with all of the angst you would expect, and an underlying mystery to solve. Tara is much stronger than she thinks she is. Joel’s dreams are finally within reach, but someone has other plans for both of them. There are many moments in this story and you can feel all of the emotions; desperation, desire and lust, jealousy, distrust, and of course love.

Whispers of my Skin by Susana Mohel is her first book, and this story is lovely and perfect, is a mix when you find a second chance and western romance, and to be honest who doesnt love cowboys.. because I DO!!!

This is the story of Joel and Tara, two persons who met each other when they were young and fell in love, but for differents situations they arent together anymore. After many years they are adults

** I received an ARC for an Honest review**

So let me just start off by saying that usually I go for books where the hero and heroine have not met before so that we can see their relationship develop , in other words, I am very picky with my second chance romance novels. However the blurb for Whispers of my skin definitely intrigued me and being a reader who is obsessed with with ranches and cowboys I had to read this one!

The story starts with the introduction of a very ap

I'm so glad I was appproached by the author to read and review her book because it was definitly a very enjoyable read! I will say there were a few times at the beginning I just wasn't sure if I could get into It. Things that happen (which are a major plot line to the entire book) happen really quickly, and I felt it left me a little.... wanting. I think if it went in a little slower, left it a little more "angsty", especially with how Joel and Tara's relationship left off in the past, it would ...more
