Skin Deep

November 4, 2014

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 choice and lose everything—including her life?(

Haha! Were-tiger? Sounds fun.

I'm not one to pick up books about issues like obesity and self-esteem although I think they should be further explored. However, I prefer it to be subtle. This book seems like it's integrated Kiera's weight issue into the story and she will learn her lesson by going through some adventures instead of focusing on her issue all the way through.

What Are You Waiting On?



  1. It sounds fun, mixing issues about self-esteem and a paranormal world. Intriguing pick, Mari!

    1. I have an idea of how it should go in my head, hoping It stands up to it or blows it away.


  2. Wow, this sounds so good! Definitely adding it to my TBR list. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Wow! Wasn't expecting this book to be paranormal! That was a surprise, but I can kind of see how it would end and just to see the journey unfold, I would be interested in read this. Though the cover reminds me of Don't Look Back by JLA. Thanks for sharing this :)
