Skin Tight by Ava Gray (aka Ann Aguirre for anyone who doesn't already know it) is the second book in the "Skin" series and for the record, Skin Game (book 1) was one of my favorite reads last year. I'd never heard of Ann Aguirre or read any of her previous books, but after Skin Game she became an auto-buy author for me. Skin Tight is definitely a stand alone book and you don't have to read Skin Game first - but it was a great book, so why wouldn't you? Thomas Strong (or Addison Foster as he was introduced to us in Skin Game) is a dark and deeply flawed character and if that isn't enough, he's got some spooky special abilities. As head of Human Resources, Thomas infiltrates Micor Technologies, because this lab is not what it appears to be and Thomas is a man on a mission. Nothing and no one will get in his way as he intends to expose all of Micor's nasty secrets, exact his revenge and make sure that people pay for the inhuman experiments they've been conducting. The same people who turned him into the man he is today and ultimately cost him the one thing he cared about most in the world - his little girl. Thomas Strong or whatever he's calling himself these days is a loner, someone that no one ever really remembers or recognizes. This is where is "special" ability comes to light. People only see and hear Thomas as he wants to be seen and heard. That is until Mia Sauter reappears in his life, with the ability and knowledge to bring his well constructed world crashing down around him and all his carefully laid out plans with it. Mia Sauter is a smart and savvy forensic accountant for hire who currently finds herself employed undercover at Micor Technologies to ferret out whose been siphoning off funds to line their own pockets. Shock doesn't begin to describe Mia's reaction her first day on the job when she comes face to face with Addison Foster (as she knows him), the same man who handed her over to kidnappers without regard for her own personal welfare in Skin Game. Thomas and Mia may have a mutual distrust towards one another with good reason, but they also have an undeniable and smouldering chemistry between them. Once they decide to trust each other and work together, the action really heat up. The scenes in the secret lab with the requisite "mad scientist" and the trusty henchman carrying out torture on the unsuspecting human subjects were both chilling and creepy, but they also provide the back story for two very interesting secondary characters in Gillie and Taye (who get their own book I am happy to report - can't wait for that one). Thomas was a hard hero to warm up to at first, but as his story and character developed, you can't help but realize that he is a man who loves deeply and is willing to do anything to save and protect those he loves and cares about. And seriously how can you not love a man who visits a blind, elderly woman every week in the hospital pretending to be her absentee son just to provide her some company? If that doesn't melt your heart just a little nothing will. Skin Tight has something for everyone. Page turning action and suspense, paranormal abilities and a touching romantic love story that will tug at your heart-strings. If you aren't reading this series - you should be...what are you waiting for?

In Virginia, forensic accountant Mia Sauter is undercover masquerading as an information technology specialist. However, she is taken aback when she meets the human resources director Thomas Strong. She knew him in Vegas last years as a security specialist named Addison Foster, but he rid that identify like a snake ridding its skin although he still regrets exposing her to his prey Seranno. Strong is stunned that Mia ID's him because no one has ever done that before; they only see the person he pretends to be. For years he has toiled to enact revenge against those who destroyed his life, but for the first time since his world imploded someone knows him. He wants Mia just like he did in Vegas, but he recalls the last person he overtly cared for: his Lexie and what happened to her. He fears placing the woman he loves in danger if he informs her he is Soren; while a lie will cost him his heart as she makes his Skin Heat but he must keep her safe. This is a super taut romantic suspense thriller starring an obstinate heroine and an avenging lead male who met in the previous tale Skin Game. His changing skill is beyond just acting; as it is a superpower or curse depending on one's outlook; thus her seeing him stuns him. The story line is fast-paced from the moment that Mia sees Strong's reflection in a glass door and never slows down as she refuses to accept any of his ruses except the kisses that feel from his heart. However, their reunion is not joyful; because besides the betrayal, a psychopath who is over the top of the Washington Monument notices them, recognizes him for what he did to the man, and knows how to manipulate his prey.

There is a book series that I am absolutely MAD for! I'm serious. I am crazy mad in love with this series. Ava Gray aka Ann Aguirre is the author of the SKIN SERIES. Poor Ava/Ann. I stalk her on Twitter begging for more of this series. Waiting is SO hard! Skin Game is the first and Skin Tight is the second book in the SKIN SERIES. Write that down. From the SKIN TIGHT back cover: Uncovering the truth is her specialty As a forensic accountant, Mia Sauter could usually tell when people had something to hide. She made her living exposing secrets while concealing her own. Then, in Vegas, she met a clever, ruthless man who called himself Addison Foster. One year later, she's still haunted by his betrayal. He's a natural born liar The truth of him had long ago been buried. Foster was only one name of many; he'd been so many men, he'd lost count. Reinvented as Thomas Strong and hell-bent on revenge, his mission is about to be compromised by the one woman capable of exposing him. Reunited, they confront the explosive chemistry still crackling between them. But their chance meeting will have consequences, for a ruthless madman has his own deadly agenda. The question is-if they survive the fallout, will he choose love over vengeance? I fell in love with Thomas Strong when I knew him as Addison Foster. In fact, I fell in love with him at first read. Ok. Fine. I fell in LUST with him at first read. When I read SKIN TIGHT, that lust turned to love. I adore Thomas Strong. Like. ADORE him. I want his babies. Mia is pretty darn awesome. I don't hate her. And I totally could. TOTALLY. I mean, she gets to be the HEROINE. (I'm never the heroine. Always the secondary character, never the heroine.) The suspense is heart pounding. There are several points in the story where I cried. (I don't cry much over fiction. Humane Society tv ads? Yes. Fiction? Not as much.) Also, Ava Gray/Ann Aguirre writes the creepiest antagonists. In SKIN TIGHT, the antagonist made my skin crawl. Awesome, right? I found SKIN TIGHT to be very satisfying on so many levels. I absolutely loved every bit of it! Ava Gray is a phenomenal author. PHE-NOM-EN-AL!
