Oh, who was she kidding? Emma knew that going to the tattoo shop with her best friend, Allie, would result in getting badgered until she ended up with some sort of needle piercing her flesh in one way or another. What she didn’t plan on was ending up face-first on the floor of the shop with a busted lip. Or doing it in front of the hottest guy she’d seen since…well, ever.
Mortified, Emma never thought she’d ever step foot back in Skin Deep again. But fate, with a little help from Emma’s flighty best friend and a chance encounter with a fudge bar, steps in. Now Emma’s torn between taking a chance on getting her heart broken by the enigmatic, gorgeous Lucas, and playing it safe with good ol’ trusty B.O.B.
Lucas lets Emma know that he gets what he wants, and what he wants is her. When Emma gives in and quits pushing him away, she’s surprised at how quickly the walls around her heart crumble. She’s even more surprised that her unconventional, zany family just endears her even more to him.
But no one knows there’s someone that wants her more, and they’ll stop at nothing to get her.
*Recommended for readers 18+ due to HOT sexual encounters, adult situations, and language
Skin Deep starts out with Emma being forced to get a tattoo
by her best friend Allie where she meets (fumbles ands stumbles into) Luke. After she has her tattoo done and Allie gets her piercing, they leave and Emma is a little sad that she won;t ever see Luke again. An unfortunate event has Emma heading back to Skin Deep, and ends up having a very happy ending when Luke asks her out! Now Luke is so damn HOT he will be leaving you all like
He is ALPHA to the core,and I mean LIKE the ALPHA of the alphas. Which actually scares Emma off from him because she has already been in a relationship with Douche bag Brad who expected her to do as he says when he says. Luke isn't going to give up on Emma so easy tho because once he decided she was HIS that was it. Now there were a few EXTREMELY kinky moments. Things you aren't going to find in your every day romance novel, and while these things don't get my engine revving they were still HOT. Luke has a very dark and kinky side that Emma told him to unleash maybe a little before she was ready. But there encounter after leaves her with a heady excitement for more that Luke has to offer. BUT Luke isn't the only one with his eyes on Emma, nope she has someone who is watching and calling her.Can you say Creepy??
All in All I truly enjoyed this story, while the KINK factor is a little high for me, I guess I'm just way to vanilla, it doesn't do anything to take away from the actual story so don;t let that scare you off, and seriously it was only like ONE moment that was super KINKY I mean it was still HOT just nothing I would partake in. lol I'm not making any sense am I? JUST IGNORE ME. Great Story, AMAZING complicated characters, definitely has a lot of components that I have never seen or read in it before. So my suggestion is that you totally pick it up and give it a shot!
