What a heartwarming fantastic read. So happy to see Megan get her HEA. A must read for I-Team fans. Loved the Beer Run as an added bonus. Now I'm itching the next I-Team Novel.

Once again Pamela Clare has "hit it out of the park". Skin Deep is a wonderful touching story. It brings you to tears, but in a" feel good " way too. With the extra Beer Run at the end....it's a MUST read.

So happy that Megan gets an amazing Hero after everything that she's been through. Pamela Clare does such an incredible job with her characters. She draws you in and makes you feel even if you don't want to. Great story!!

Another FANTASTIC read from Pamela Clare. This one is a must read especially for I-Team fans. Loved the story of Megan and Nate overcoming their inner demons to find love. So happy to see Megan get her HEA. Loved the Beer Run as an added bonus too- can't wait for the next I-Team Novel.

I wasnt all that impressed with the book. It had a decent story line, but it was badly written. Simply put, it was choppy and hard to fully fall in love with Nate and Megan....or their story

Ms Clare is an author who writes modern day stories as well as historicals and writes them very well! Her research and detail are evident in each book she has written. I have read her books in both genres and look eagerly for more to come. I recommend her books to any reader looking for a story full of adventure and romance.Was this review helpful?

I've been a follower and huge fan of the I-Team Series and so when I found out Skin Deep was out, I was ecstatic! I loved every single installment of the series & this addition was no exception. Pamela Clare never ceases to amaze me & she never disappoints me with her amazing skill of storytelling.
B&N provided a great summary description of Skin Deep so I won't regurgitate it. What I will say is that this story was simply amazing! The characters were fleshed out and well-developed. The plot and storyline were well-crafted and delivered. Clare definitely weaved an intense and emotional story with this one. It was great to witness Nate and Megan's sweet and budding romance as well as their great connection and chemistry. They were two unforgettable characters who evoked a lot of emotions for me while reading their story. Nate and Megan are two broken individuals who have their own burden to carry. They are both scarred emotionally and physically, yet they see each other as nothing but perfect for one another and in each other, they find love and acceptance.
Overall, I loved Skin Deep. Everything about this story was perfect! Skin Deep was truly a beautiful tale of two individuals finding the love and happiness that they so much deserved. With that said, I applaud Pamela Clare on another story amazingly well-written! Skin Deep was a great read and one that I highly, highly recommend. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

I loved this book! It's true, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The sweet love affair between the main characters is a breathe of fresh air. Love can happen even for the broken, who deserve it the most.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I am a HUGE fan of the I-team series, and have come to expect a lot of the author, and I wasn't disappointed. Skin Deep has it all, and from cover to cover it was impossible to put it down. Knowing of Megan's troubles from reading her brother, Marc's, story, it was refreshing to be able to see a woman who has had so many wrongs happen in her life to see it being righted. The connection between Nate and Megan was evident from their first meeting and his gentle touch with her and her daughter was a treat to watch play out. The story had an amazing flow, and I can't find one criticism about the story. I do have to add, I REALLY enjoyed my man Julian in the Beer Run short story at the end ::sigh::Was this review helpful?

I enjoyed this story very much. The book was a little shorter than I like, but it was easy to follow and had a satisfying ending. I would have liked to read a little more character development but overall I was glad I read it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Pamela Clare has been an auto-buy author for me. I love her style of writing and find her stories very believable.
Skin Deep will not disappoint its reader. The two main characters are struggling to overcome broken spirits. I am not going into the storyline details except will say they have a HEA.
Can't wait to see what PC writes next.
Posted June 20, 2012
This is a novella, so don't expect as much depth as a full length novel, but a great story none the less. Glad to see Megan get her HEA, and Nate is a most deserving hero. His dad was great too. If you are a fan of the I-Team it's a must read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Unlawful Contact is my favorite of the I-Team series so far, and when I heard Pamela Clare was writing a novella featuring Megan, the sister of Unlawful Contact's hero Marc Hunter, I definitely wanted to read it. (Marc Hunter...*swoons*) It's sometimes difficult to understand why a character would throw his life away sacrificing himself for a loved one, but when I heard Megan's traumatic past, I totally got Marc's sacrifice. Sexual abuse can destroy one's soul.
It's now four years after the conclusion of Unlawful Contact, and Megan is a single mother who works full time and somehow manages also to volunteer at a community kitchen. There she meets Nate West, a former Marine turned rancher who donates beef from his family's ranch to the kitchen. An explosion in Afghanistan left Marine Nate with severe burns on half his body. His disfigured appearance led to the dissolution of his marriage and his spirit. It's appropriate I read this story on Memorial Day--a time to acknowledge the plentiful sacrifices of our military.
Megan and Nate...talk about people with trust issues! But one way to bond together is to face a common foe, and they find him in Donny--a meth-head who's the father of Megan's child. Donny tries to get money from Megan in any way possible, but Nate is determined to stop him from hurting her.
As they get to know each other, Nate soon realizes the sadness in Megan's eyes:
Her hands stilled, and she looked at him through green eyes full of shadows--too many shadows for a woman in her twenties.
And Nate is amazed his scars don't bother Megan. Au contraire, she thinks his tall, muscular body is hawt (and so do I!) Pamela Clare does a masterful job of writing men full of integrity, and Nate's another good one.
Megan's four-year-old daughter Emily is ADORABLE, and I love how Megan calls her "sweet pea".
Emily's eyes opened, and she looked up at him from beneath heavy eyelids. She reached with one tiny hand, touched the scarred side of his face. Little blond brows furrowed, Emily's sleepy eyes filling with a child's sympathy. "Owie."
Blindsided by the child's simple gesture, her innocent compassion, Nate's throat went tight, a hitch behind his breastbone where his heart was supposed to be.
Get a grip, marine.
Nate is one wise man, as evidenced by these quotes:
"It's not so much that the world won't forgive you, Megan, honey. It seems to me that you won't forgive yourself." BINGO!
Later, when Nate is giving Megan a ride on his horse: "Relax, honey. Just because he's big and aggressive doesn't mean he's going to hurt you."
And Megan understood that Nate wasn't just talking about the horse.
This novella is a sweet and satisfying romance, featuring two individuals whose caring and tenderness begin to heal each others' wounds.
The list of other Pamela Clare titles caught my eye because I noticed there's another I-Team novella titled Heaven Can't Wait. Has anyone read this one?
The bonus story about the boys making a beer run was pure fun. Your fans thank you for the luv, Pamela Clare!
