Publisher's Summary

Meet Keisha Montez: a gorgeous college student on the brink of stardom. All she has to do is put her assets to work....

Blessed with a body that won't quit, Keisha Montez is also one very smart, tough woman with big hopes for her future - a future where she'll do whatever it takes to make enough money to get through school and see her dreams become reality....

Steven Cox has big ideas, too. When his talent scouts tell him about the next big thing, he has his doubts until he sees Keisha Montez strut across the stage. Blown away by her bombshell good looks and her sexy moves, Steven knows he's found his star. Now he's got to teach her the ropes and get her to see things his way. But Steven is about to learn that Keisha isn't like most other young women who are hungry for fame and willing to do anything for the limelight....

Narration MURDER

Paula Jai Parker should be ASHAMED of herself, like seriously ashamed! To be a seasoned actress, the disservice that she did this book is terrible. I only got to chapter 8, but at one point leading up to it I just looked at my phone like is she TRYING to mess this person's book up on purpose, cause like seriously, the accents and voice inflections were some of the worst I have ever heard. Some of the reviews raved about how good this book is, sadly, I will never know because of this narrator.

Paula j parker ruined this book!

I got the book based on Paula j parker because she was a good narrator in other books she's read but this is so bad I couldn't continue the book to see if there was a good story. I'm so disappointed. the way she read the men is ridiculous and it gave me a headache!

Great Story

I actually enjoyed this read. Its realistic about everyday life. There are two flaws in my opinion however if I state one of them it'll give to much of the story away so I can't but the second flaw is some of the character voices. They because irritating & if they weren't one if the main characters I would've fasr forward through them.

Great Story!

I loved the narrator! The story was much different than what I thought it would be. I kind of wanted to know more at the end but it was still good.

No ma'am Paula

She has done better work in previous books but this narration is AWFUL! Overly dramatic, male voices just terrible and exaggerated, and it seemed she just wanted to get it over with.

Paula J Parker is an excellent reader

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Ross could write more than a historical book. I know him for the Divine 9 book which is awesome but this was a great read too.

THE NARRATOR FOR THE CLUB OWNER IS SO ANNOYING

What did you love best about Skin Game?

THE STORY WAS GREAT

What other book might you compare Skin Game to and why?

NONE

How could the performance have been better?

I COULD NOT ENJOY THIS STORY FULLY BECAUSE THE OWNERS NARRATOR WAS AWFUL OMG JUST AWFUL . TRIED TO HARD TO SOUND LIKE A PIMP OMG I SIMPLY WANTED TO RIP MY EARS OFF WHEN HE SPOKE. ALL THE OTHER NARRATORS WERE GREAT BUT THE OWNER OMG PLEASE FIRE HER/ HIM THIS IS NOT FOR THEM AT ALL I ALMOST RETURNED THE BOOK.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

NO NOT AT ALL

Any additional comments?

FIRE WHOEVER WAS THE PIMP/OWNER NARRATOR THAT WAS THE ONLY HORRILBE PART.
