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?
Skin Deep (Eternal Forces Book 1) by Megan D. Martin is not only an entertaining paranormal romance story but also a brilliant look into real social issues that many of us have faced in our own lives. Kiera has been teased, taunted and dismissed for being overweight. Left with emotional scars and unwanted “baggage” she turns to gypsy magic to rid her of the excess weight that has ruined her life. But, in order to have what she wants she is forced not to break the one rule that accompanies her wish – NO SEX!! How hard can that really be??
Enter Cain = Exit Kiera’s self control! Cain probably wouldn’t have given Kiera the time of day with her old body but it is a much different story now. Cain, an alpha were-tiger, is a womanizing, disrespecting, P.I.G. who is use to getting what he wants. With his sights set on Kiera will he change his ways to get close to her? Will she submit to her desires or realize that beauty is truly only Skin Deep?
I loved this story! It mixed paranormal romance, mystery, and life lessons into a story that was well written and super hard to put down. The story is unique and the characters, despite all their internalized flaws, made you fall in love them. I am excited to read the next book in the series and hope that it lives up to my expectations as Skin Deep did from the moment I saw the cover!!
