Blog tour: Skin Deep by JM Stone


Oh, who was she kidding? Emma knew that going to the tattoo shop with her best friend, Allie, would result in getting badgered until she ended up with some sort of needle piercing her flesh in one way or another. What she didn’t plan on was ending up face-first on the floor of the shop with a busted lip. Or doing it in front of the hottest guy she’d seen since…well, ever.

Mortified, Emma never thought she’d ever step foot back in Skin Deep again. But fate, with a little help from Emma’s flighty best friend and a chance encounter with a fudge bar, steps in. Now Emma’s torn between taking a chance on getting her heart broken by the enigmatic, gorgeous Lucas, and playing it safe with good ol’ trusty B.O.B.

Lucas lets Emma know that he gets what he wants, and what he wants is her. When Emma gives in and quits pushing him away, she’s surprised at how quickly the walls around her heart crumble. She’s even more surprised that her unconventional, zany family just endears her even more to him.

But no one knows there’s someone that wants her more, and they’ll stop at nothing to get her.

*Recommended for readers 18+ due to HOT sexual encounters, adult situations, and language.

4.5 Star Review by Guest Reviewer Allison East
I cannot say enough good things about this book! It had me laughing and blushing at the same time. I couldn't stop reading it. Let's just say 4 AM is not a good look for me. Hi my name is Allison and I love a good strong alpha male- plus side, he is tattooed, pierced and in my age bracket! Ding ding ding, we have a winner for new male book boyfriend crush. Luke- hubba hubba.
"'Aw, sugar, don't be scared, the stack of deliciousness said, 'Why don't you come on up here and pick something out? I'll do you myself and I promise to be gentle."

Whoa, talk about a double entendre.
Lucas works at a tattoo shop called, hello, Skin Deep. Emma goes with her friend Allie because she wants her tongue pierced. This is where Emma meets the stack of deliciousness as she said, and the brother- who is equally as yummy. 
Emma is a great heroine. She's not a typical size two; she's a size twelve on a good day- fourteen on the others.
"For those of you who aren't as unlucky as me in the bedroom department, BOB is my battery operated boyfriend. Honestly, it's a pretty good relationship. I don't have to fight him for the remote, he doesn't hog the covers, and I get mine every time."
And Luke is funny- but also has a dark side. He has a little bit of a Dom side going on, and I like it. 
"You. Are. Moving. In. With. Me. I want you in my bed, every night. I want to wake up with you in my arms every morning. And sugar? Next time you order me around, I won't take it so lightly. I'll have you tied up in no time and you will feel the bite of my hand as I spank that tight little ass of yours until its hot and red and you're screaming for me to f### the s### out of you."
WHOA- my legs are trembling!
At every turn, hilarity ensued. I described this book to a friend as a mash up of Wallbanger, Seduction and Snacks, with a little bit of Rock Me in there and a tiny bit of suspense like Ms. Kristen Ashley likes to provide.  Are you one-clicking it yet?  
I loved all of the characters too. Her best friend Allie was awesome, and sassy! Lucas brother Brandon was a trip too! Then throw in the smexy friend Jackson- holy hell, I'm in love!
Did I mention the sex? I didn't? If I thought Lucas was hot before having sex with Emma, he damn well got hotter after. 
The story was really well written, and developed in all the right areas. It wasn't too rushed. The love story was totally believable. And after reading all of these New Adult, 18-24 love stories it was nice for a thirty something one! There was a tiny bit of angst- which got remedied pretty quickly, thank God. And a plot twist at the end I could have dealt without, but other than that- great read! You will NOT be disappointed!
