Skin Deep (#5.5) By Pamela Clare

An I-Team Spin Off

Broken on the inside

Megan Hunter has worked hard to get back on her feet, leaving the nightmare of her teenage years behind. The last thing she wants or needs in her life is a man. But when she is attacked by someone from her past, a scarred stranger intervenes, saving her life and that of her little girl. Looks can be deceiving, for despite the man’s rough appearance, she feels safe with him. And for the first time in her life, she knows the stirrings of desire.

Broken on the outside

Nathaniel West paid a high price serving with the Marines in Afghanistan. He returned to his family’s ranch in the Colorado mountains to heal—and be alone. Disfigured as he is, he has put all thoughts of sex and romance aside. But something about Megan brings him back to life, heats his blood, makes him feel like a man again. As danger pursues her, and the truth about her past is revealed, he vows to protect her—and to heal her wounded spirit.

But confronting the past is never easy—especially when it’s carrying a gun. Megan will have to learn to trust Nate to survive and to claim a passion that is much more than … Skin Deep.

Includes a Bonus Story, Marc & Julian Make a Beer Run

Ride along with Marc, Julian, Zach, Gabe, Reece, Nate, and Joaquin as a beer run turns out to be more than they bargained for.

Thessa's Review:

4.25-4.5 Stars

First off, may I say that I couldn't stop looking at this gorgeous cover. I mean, come on! That is some serious eye candy right there. LOL. Okay. I'm done gawking…for now ;)

So anyway, beneath this gorgeous cover lies a highly entertaining story. I haven't read a romantic suspense novel in ages and this was just what the doctor ordered. It was a bit on the short side, but that was okay. It was jammed packed with action, a little suspense and a whole lot of chemistry. I love Nate. He is a true hero, inside and out. He served our country and has the scars to prove them. Even after all the burns and multiple surgeries, his soul remains beautiful. He is blessed with the support of his father and his community. He finds love again with Megan. However, Megan comes with a terrible past, a violent one to boot. Nate will do whatever it takes to protect her & her daughter.

So like I said prior to reading this book, this was my first Pamela Clare book. Be warned that there are minor spoilers in this book for those of you that are like me who haven’t read her I-Team books yet. Characters from those books do make an appearance and what terrific characters they were too. I will definitely be picking up this series in the near future :)
