Reader Advisory: Story contains a wee bit of forced sex—or is it?
Review: Skin Truth by Em Petrova is a fantastic BDSM erotic romance. This short story is packed with mystery and suspense as well as sizzling hot passion.
Kat has been with her boyfriend, Daniel for nine months now and she’s sure that she is really in love. When he takes her out to a fancy restaurant she thinks this is it, and she’s about to get engaged. When things take a sudden and unexpected turn, she is left devastated. In the aftermath, Kat begins to explore new things and discovers things about herself she never knew. When she decides to check out a local club that she has always wondered about, has she gone too far?
I very highly recommend this book! I gave it 4 stars, but I would actually give it 4 ½ if I could. The writing is excellent and the story had me glued to my e-reader. At 65 pages it’s a nice length for me because it’s long enough to give the reader time to get into the story and characters, but it’s not a full length novel that might take days to read.
I loved Kat and could really relate to her. She’s a modern day strong and independent woman. The problem is that she’s so liberated that she refuses to need anything from anyone. This story is high on the heat level, and has great characters and a compelling story, giving the reader more than just erotica. BDSM stories can range anywhere from light to hardcore and everywhere in between. I would consider this one a little further on the scale towards hardcore, and it also has just a bit of a dark feel to it. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and when I finished I wanted more!

Deliciously naughty is what this story is. When Katherine (Kat) finds herself suddenly single she decides to explore a part of herself she never knew existed. Kat goes from a good girl who does everything by the book to a vixen looking for her next sexual high and I absolutely devoured every minute of it.
This story drew me in from the very beginning and held me in a bear hug up until the last word. While the direction of the plot was evident to me, it did not make it any less entertaining. This was one of the best storylines I have read in a while and I absolutely relished it. I really cannot say one specific thing that really made this story a standout because everything was done to make it extremely satisfying.
Kat's exploration was one that many of us wish we could do ourselves. At one point in most females' lives, they discover their sexuality and go from just okay sex to mind blowing, leg-quivering satisfaction. Whether it is with a partner or ourselves, we realize what works for us and what does not. I wanted to clap my hands at those moments of epiphany, to show my support when Kat finally got to know who she really was.
If you cannot tell by my review so far, sex was the focus in of this story. Not just any sex, but sexual discovery. During this discovery, Kat is "kidnapped" and seduced. While her mind may be telling her it is wrong, she very much enjoys the experience and had clear lust for her main aggressor prior to the incident. Additionally, while others assist the main seducer they do not penetrate or have any real sexual contact with Kat. Therefore, if forced seduction or ménage's are not your thing I think you may still find this scene tastefully executed. I am sure this will be the first of many of Author Em Petrova stories I read.
