This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

NETFLIX NEWS! The 44 Chapters About 4 Men series is being adapted into a steamy Netflix dramedy series called SEX/LIFE, coming soon!

"Skin is a sophisticated, edgy, authentic, five-star read, and I HIGHLY recommend it." (L.J. Shen, USA Today best-selling author)

Because BB Easton had so much fun writing her best-selling, award-winning memoir, 44 Chapters About 4 Men, she decided to give each of her four men his own steamy stand-alone. Skin is Knight's book - a gritty, taboo, forbidden love story overflowing with '90s nostalgia, dark humor, and heart-wrenching teenage angst. It is based on a true story.  

In 1997, Ronald "Knight" McKnight was the meanest, most misunderstood boy at Peach State High School...perhaps on the entire planet. Knight hated everyone, except for me, BB - the perky, quirky punk chick with the locker next to his.  

I, on the other hand, liked everybody...except for Knight. I was scared sh*tless of him, actually. All I wanted was to marry Prince Eric-lookalike and king of the Peach State High punk scene, Lance Hightower, and have a million of his babies.

Unfortunately for me, Knight was even better at getting his way than I was, and once he got under my skin, my life would never be the same.

SKIN is Book 1 in the 44 Chapters About 4 Men spin-off series but can also be enjoyed as a standalone. Go in with an open mind, and prepare to have it blown.

Where was my Knight when I was 15?

Okay so I read "44 Chapters About 4 Men: A Memoir" and being the kind of female who likes her daily dose of badasses, I sorta kinda was terrified/turned on by Knight, so when I found out that BB Easton (badass author eva!) had release another book a couple months later, entitled "SKIN", I knew I had to read it. I will be honest, after I had read the book on my little phone, I was speechless. No really, I was so speechless that I couldn't even write a proper review about what I had just read...how could I? Anyone who has read "SKIN" or even "44 Chapters" and is a person who is easily affected (positive or negative) would probably let the stars speak for them, so that's what I did, I gave "SKIN" five burning bright ass stars....

Fast forward to May 13, I received a FB message congratulating me on winning an audio book for "SKIN" and I was ecstatic! But also anxious. Anxious because it was only that past March that I had finished reading "SKIN" and it pulled my heart strings all over the place so I kept thinking, "do I really want to listen to the book?" Obviously the answer was yes or I wouldn't be writing this. Here's the thing before I go into my review. I received this audio book on the 13th. I was so anxious that I didn't listen to it til yesterday. That's right, it sat in my audible library for 5 days until I mustered up the balls to finally listen and let BB Easton pull at my heart strings yet again. So, here goes my review...

Listening to Ramona Master as BB, some parts were funny where she had me laughing, other parts had me annoyed but hey, what vulnerable 15 year old girl with self conscious issues and a mad crush be if not a little annoying with her naivety and lack of experience with the harsh reality of growing up and falling in love? Exactly, so any who, I'd like to think that BB has a lot of heart and soul because she got to me, not in a bad way, but she got to me and Ramona Master had mastered that and I actually felt like I know BB. There were parts in her story that were raw, real, and sad but the parts that were warm and happy, kept me going.

Thanks to reading "44 Chapters", I thought I had a pretty good idea of how BB and Knight's story was going to pan out. Boy was I wrong and in for a rude awakening. Here's the thing, because I read the book and know how this story goes, listening to Ramona as BB made me forget the whole thing and had me start from the beginning, which I didn't mind because the tons of surprises were not only a breathe of fresh air but had me gasping for air!

I'm going to get to my favorite part of this all: Knight. Ughhhhhh! Knight, oh Ronald Knight. Not gonna lie but he's my favorite from the "44 Chapters" book so yeah, just saying. What made me love him even more was that his story wasn't revealed right away, it was drawn out (painfully but worth it) and I feel that BB Easton did this so we can fall in love with him too, because that's what happened, I literally feel in love with Knight, even when he broke my heart...I mean BB's heart.

Listening to Knight and BB's time together was quite interesting. Their relationship was literally bittersweet, some parts sweet (I swooned when he gave her paper flowers) and some parts bitter (when he pushed her away after the junk yard incident). Since Knight was not your "normal" kind of guy and I air quote normal because I've dated guys who society looked at as not normal, his idea of love and romance were a bit intense and crude but it was love. So listening to Ramona as BB talking during their sex scenes left me kind of turned on because of his devotion to her (constantly telling her she's f*cking beautiful) and kind of uncomfortable (and that's only because of her age and his age BUT in all fairness, I knew plenty of girls from my high school who had sex with seniors when we were sophomores, plus I'd like to think that the demographics had played a part in all this).

Anyways, back to the sex because I just have to comment on that; Knight's foreplay and kink factor made my acts of foreplay seem amateurish and I'm almost 29! I had to give it to him, I want nipple pierces too now but I'm a huge wuss and well I'll just stick to nipple clamps. Like most relationships, BB and Knight's had their ups and downs, and what happened between them left me speechless and whoa, just shocked because it was beyond emotional, it had me gutted.

Overall, I loved the book and I loved listening to the book because not only did Easton warmed my heart and had me smiling, but she had me clutching my aching chest and tear up. I felt like the book left a strong message and I didn't realize what that was until I listened to it. BB Easton is just amazing and she obviously poured her heart and soul into this and Ramona Master delivered! And although I am recovering and not sure if I will be ready by then, and because I'm a sucker for pain, I can't wait for her next book.

My Two Pennies

The narration by Ramona Master was amazing. The emotions hit right to the core and I was hanging on every single word. I loved 44 chapters and reading Knight and BB's complete story I have found an even deeper love for this man. BB loves with all she's got and then some. To see the only known skin head in town take on such a protective role shows that there is so much more to a person then meets the eye. There are times I'm cheering Knight on and others screaming what's wrong with you?! Decisions made have such a profound effect on each individual, I'm torn to pieces reading the full story these two souls have shared. it was a beautiful ride filled with so many emotions constantly swarming round. Thank you BB for opening your heart and soul to us the readers and sharing in both your and Knights journey.

Not What I Expected.

I kind of went into this one blind, expecting teen angst with a HEA. The author did a great job on telling the story, so my disappointment is all on me.

For those of you (like me) who need closure and HEA, I would suggest you research this author before reading.

Love BB & Knight's Story

I loved getting a deeper understanding of Knight. He seemed so complex in 44 Chapters and in Skin it was almost painful to see how tormented he was. Clearly the young love between BB & Knight was profound!

The narration was again so incredible!!!

This audiobook ROCKS.

I’m so in love with Ramona Master narration in Skin and all of B.B. Easton’s books. She delivers bringing to perfect emotions in all of B.B characters.

This audiobook brought to life the sassiness, quirkyness and dirty fun personality of B.B. Knight was dark and brooding but I felt for him. His inner struggles.

The sexy part where SCORCHING HOT and dark and delicious. The emotional part twisted my heart. I got emotional and teary eyed. This book touch a lot of teen troubles.

Can’t wait to listen to this whole series on audiobook. Need to be prepared for the series on Netflix.

Wow!!! And this is coming from someone who didn't like 44 chapters of 4 men! I thought that maybe reading the single full book of each separate men would read/listen better as a story for me and at least with this one so far, it did! Knight holy moly! So unexpected towards the end and it had my eyes go bugging. Theres NO WAY I could see myself go through what BB went through. I love the wide cast of characters and how well the story moved. Def. a page turner. The last chapter has me def. moving Speed up my TBR. I'm so glad I gave these another chance.

Wow, wow, wow

This story is one that I know will stick with me for a long time to come. BB's writing made it easy to connect with the emotional rollercoaster this story takes you on. I laughed, I cried, I fumed. The underlying message throughout the book that everyone deserves to be loved, no matter their situation or self opinion is powerful.

Ramona Master's narration is superb.

I would highly recommend this book, and look forward to reading the rest of the series.

So much angst... Knight

Wow! This book was full of angst! So many emotions were stirred! It was sooo good! I cried, laughed, was terrified at some point, but overall loved this book. In a way, Knight was such a troubled soul that made me want to take care of him.

Fantastic!

It’s not often a book makes me cry but this one did. It also made me laugh... a lot. BB is a delight and I fell in love with both her and Knight, as broken as he is. It’s heartbreaking, emotional and so addictive. I wish I could convey everything that this book made me feel but by the end I think I just felt sadness. It’s definitely a book that will stay with me for a long time to come. I loved it and I highly recommend!

This book is amazing!

I absolutely love the personality and fun in this book. Yes at times it’s a sad story but there is so much sass and humour I can’t recommend it enough. Ramona, you are truly amazing, so much character in your voice.
