About the Author

DP Denman writes character-driven gay romance about survivors. Her stories are real and intense but always resolve in the type of ending that makes readers want to start the book all over again. She is from the Pacific Northwest and bases all of her stories in Vancouver, British Columbia, a city that is dear to her heart. In her spare time she is a dedicated gay rights activist fighting for those who have been marginalized and abused. To that end, 25% of the royalties from every book go to support LGBT charities.

Skin Deep is the second book in a series. It starts off with Liam, who escaped an abusive past, now living together with Justin, the man of his dreams. But Liam’s struggle with his past, in which he played in web porn movies, under the influence of his ex-boyfriend, hasn’t come to an end yet. He loses his job when a server recognizes him from the porn videos, and threatens to harm him with that information. After a few struggles back and forth, he realizes he has to quit, and starts to wonder if the past will ever let go of him. The book relies heavily on characterization, and that’s where it shines. Liam is struggling, and it’s obvious from the start. He goes back and forth between the scared kid he once was, and the confident adult he tries to become. His struggle feels real, and I felt for him. It was painful at times to watch how, even despite all his efforts, things just didn’t work out. Justin was the ever-supportive boyfriend, kind of like a rock to lean on. Liam’s journey to find himself, and to become the person he’s always wanted to be, starts at the unlikeliest of places – the place that scarred him, seemingly forever. I thought it was a strange choice, but it ultimately turned out to be the right one for him. The writing was decent, and the characters carry the novel. Sometimes the topics are quite heavy, and this book is obviously not for everyone, but I enjoyed it. I’m not sure if this is the end for our two protagonists, but I wouldn’t mind reading more. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
