What would you do to have the body of your dreams?

Kiera hates being overweight and hides behind thick layers of clothing. One night, her friends present an opportunity that seems impossible to believe. With a single spell, she can have the thin physique she's always coveted.

But all magic comes with a price: no sex or she'll revert back to her old body. Kiera accepts the cost. It's not like she has men lined up at her door. Obeying this one tiny rule isn't difficult at all—until the night she meets Cain, a were-tiger and a soldier with the Eternal Forces.

When a slew of unexplained murders forces Kiera and Cain together, they'll have to face the horrors of their pasts. Will Kiera realize she is worth more than her outward appearance? Or will she make the wrong the choice and lose everything—including her life?

MY REVIEW.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Skin Deep is a book about a relatable subject, a woman wishing to have a different body. A story about learning to accept who we are and about loving ourselves so others can do it too.

Kiera has gone to hell and back. After moving away from a violent and abusive boyfriend, she is now alone surrounded with few friends and a boring life. Always dreaming about having the perfect body she has come to hate herself. Many of us have had or have issues with our bodies or a part of it. When a gypsy offers you the chance of a lifetime, what would you do?

Things get complicated when she gets her wish but at a high price: no sex. So imagine what a mess her life becomes once she meets Cain. He is sexy, wild and a man whore.

I like how good both characters are and how well they are developed. Their pasts are well thought and are complete. Some of their past experiences are pretty cruel and difficult to imagine but they make the story even better.

This is a story about healing and how Kiera and Cain have to come to peace with their flaws and secrets before taking their relationship to another level. I love the book because of this because the sexual tension had a meaning.

A story full of tension, with the temperature always at its peak and emotions running wild. The book has a fast pace and a great language. The author creates a great world where paranormal creatures are real and have lots of fun.
