Beauty is only skin deep. So are scars…
Nascar Champion, Shane Davis had it all-money, fast cars and even faster women until a fiery crash at the Daytona 500 changed everything in a flaming instant. Shane never intends to get married; not with the way he looks now. He knew no woman could ever love him and wasn't about to find out if he was wrong. But when he needed a woman in his life to play a pretend girlfriend for a few short weeks, he selected the one he felt would suit his needs with no strings attached: Angela Neil.
The first time Angela came face to face with Shane, she was taken aback by his scars but more so by his sizzling magnetism. The way he looked at her, with a searing heat made her simmer in secret places. This was supposed to be all about business, but Shane made it clear early on that he wanted much, much more. Angela was a smart woman and wasn't about to let her hormones rule her common sense. But temptation called Shane Davis was a dangerous thing to resist…

I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I really liked this book...but I have too major issues. ONE...it took way too long for the smexing to happen... like almost the entire book, then maybe three average sex scene for BURKE book... TWO... there was chemistry from moment one between these two characters, but all of a sudden, WAM! Refusal and shutdowns the entire book...
That being stated... the female lead was a total Dom, after she finally agreed to give in, which I loved, she was all about hers... I was kinda happy shocked to see that... nice change in perspective of Burke's usual female characters.
Still worth the credit or sale,but I doubt I listen to again... it was a likable story, just average and expected in the end.
Narration was ok... I think a Burke/Laramie combo is hard to replace, but I can settle for BURKE/Newton...
I. LOVED. This. Book. This steamy, sweet, and deeply resonating romance is absolutely marvelous. Ms. Burke expertly builds sizzling sexual chemistry; with every fleeting touch and every searing stare Shane Davis and Angela Neil set Skin Deep on fire. Shane is a Nascar race driver who is now a recluse thanks to burns he suffered during a race gone bad. Angela Neil is an actress who is referred by Shane's personal assistant to play the role of Shane's girlfriend. Angela is a struggling actress who is having difficulty paying for her father's nursing home care, and, therefore, needs the money Shane is offering to play his faux girlfriend very badly. Shane feels he needs to carry off this charade to put his friends and parents at ease regarding his recovery, but what Shane doesn't expect is to fall for the beautiful Angela. Shane and Angela are immediately and inexplicably drawn to each other. Angels finds Shane dazzlingly handsome--- and so did I! The burns only added to the mystery and hypnotic appeal of the gorgeous Shane. I felt like their attraction was a living, breathing third member of this romance! It's that real and powerful. This couple doesn't actually have sex until the second half of the book, but it's well worth the wait! The first time they nearly do the deed is ridiculously sexy! I loved this couple's story. This is--- by far--- my favorite Dez Burke romance!
And Muffy Newtown did an AMAZING job narrating this story. I'm looking forward to hearing her voice paired with more Dez Burke books in the future!
Yes... This book proves that live is not just Skin Deep...
When Shane finally realized that he actually loved Angela and wasn't just trying to scratch an itch.
No, this is my first Muffy Newton audio.
Proof that Love is not just Skin Deep.
I love losing myself in books of any kind
I'm not sure what it is about this book but I just really really enjoyed it. I originally got it this throughKindle not realizing that I get a discount on my audible so I got both.
This book is very good I truly enjoyed the plot and the characters. The fact that it's an interracial romance makes it even better for me.
I wrote most of my review after reading it through Kindle the only thing I really have to add is that the author means to truly understand southern colloquialisms. No self respecting southerner would call a the parents of a perspective boyfriend by her first name nor would she ever stay in the same room with him when visiting the parents just saying.....
At first, I was angry because it seemed that Angela was playing very hard to get. I thought she was going to miss out because she was holding on to her standards. I loved the ending! I actually cried.
This is a short easy listen. Its a very good story and the narration was good. The main characters are from 2 very different back grounds. She's a hard working, family oriented good girl, struggling with her career while trying to help care for her father. He is a damaged boy whose is having to re-evaluate some things about himself and his past in order to move forward with his future. Worth the purchase or credit.
