Okay, so ummmm… I really like Second Skin, but I’m worried that some readers are going to get to the part in the book where Roswell’s secret is revealed and will not be happy about it. Truth be told, I didn’t spend too much time contemplating what the secrets under Roswell’s skin were, but I can say the truth wasn’t even on my short list of possibilities. Fortunately, I’m one of those readers who have very little issue when a book seemingly switches genres mid-stream as long as the author’s writing is strong and the storyline flows well – which was the case with Second Skin. When Whitehall takes the hard left out of what starts off as a new adult transgender romance into a I’m-not-going-to-ruin-the-surprise-and-tell-you-the-new-genre romance, I went with it because I’m a fan of the genre. As this is my first book by Whitehall, I have no idea if this is the norm for the author or not, but I will say that I enjoyed it and felt that she pulled it off very well. Because this is a new adult novel, the fact that Jay and Roswell move their relationship forward rather quickly is believable, especially when factoring in how comfortable Roswell seems with Jay’s transgender status. As for Jay, he’s sweet as can be and lovable to boot. Of course, his reaction to Roswell’s secret isn’t as enlightened as Roswell had hoped, but it was a legitimate response and one I couldn’t fault him for at all. As Second Skin is a novella, the end came too quickly as I was enjoying spending time with Roswell and Jay. I certainly hope that Whitehall’s muse starts demanding a sequel because I would love to see more of how they manage to pursue a relationship in light of Roswell’s secret. This was an enjoyable read for me and I do hope other readers give it a chance because the unexpected direction the story took made for a couple of hours of entertaining reading. I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!
