Under Her Skin

Marry Cruz Rodriguez or lose everything - the successful day spa she built herself, her tyrant of a father's respect. And the long-standing co...more
That said, I was so ridiculously turned off by the premise that there's no way I could give it anything higher than a 2 star rating.
Basically, this: HI! I'm Lexi and I come from an obscenely wealthy family but my daddy doesn't love me so I left to start my own company and earn his love. Only, I took on a really risky investor without knowing who he is and now he wants his 2 million dollars back. I can't ask ...more
Lexi has always yearned for her father's approval. He's a cut-throat entrepreneur and businessman who built his inheritance into a kind of mini-kingdom. Lexi's mot ...more
There are a lot of great reviews and ratings for this book. Yet while I liked it, I thought it was good but on a more average level. It took me a little while to get into the story and though I liked it for the most part, I wouldn't say there was anything exceptional about it.
In Titanville, Texas, the Titan family is the most prosperous, most influential, most esteemed family around. Sisters, Lexi, Skye and Izzy have always been close, but now their ice-hearted father has ...more
Jed Titan is wealthy with three grown daughters, Lexi, Skye and Izzy. He divorced one wife, and the other died. He told his daughters that only one of them will inherit everything, depending on which daughter is the most successful on her own. Lexi opened a day spa. She borrowed $2 million from an anonymous source through her banker. The source calls the loan demanding she ...more
Here is my brief summation of the book.
Lexi: "I am a rich girl trying to make it on my own with some serious Daddy issues. My bank just told me I need to come up with 2 million dollars in three weeks or I lose my whole business. What ever shall I do?!?!"
Cruz: "Hey Lexi. I know I took your virginity and your car and then ran off, but you look mighty fine and I just HAPPENED to overhear you need 2 m ...more

The story is not bad, it's like a helongated version of a Harlequin story. Lexi is the first of three sisters, they had a strange father, always ready to put his daughters against one other :(
In order to gain her father respect and love, Lexi decided to fly on her own and opened a spa. Some time after the opening she received a financial help from an anonymous person. Now she has 2 weeks to get back with 2 millions. The father discarded, she goes to an old lover, Cruz and he tell ...more
UNDER HER SKIN had a twinge of irritation with it because the characters wouldn’t see what was right in front of their faces.
The Titan sisters long for their father’s love, but Jed Titan is not a man who allows himself to love. He’s pitted the sisters against each other in an all-out war in order for only one of them to inherit his fortune.
As the oldest, Lexi seemed to have the most lo ...more
This is book 1 of Mallery's "Lone Star Sisters" series and I can't wait to read the other ones since I fell in love with all the characters from the beginning. Every one is u ...more
Maybe I'll finish it some day when I'm in the mood for a Silhouette Desire-style read.
Cruz has money, success, smoldering good looks - everything but the blue blood needed to become a true memb ...more
Cruz was awesome and infuriating all at the same time the way he is with his daughter I wanted to shake the man and how Lexi showed him that there is more to being a father than just writing a cheque. I liked that.
The father-daughter relationship between Jed and all his daughters is another man I wanted to shak ...more
I was happy with the romance but it truly wasn't the main focus for me.
I will definitely continue on with this series.
