When Kat’s boyfriend takes her to an upscale restaurant, she’s certain he’s going to give her the two-carat princess cut she’s always dreamt of. Instead she finds herself being dumped. Thrown into a downward spiral, she ponders his claim that he’s looking for someone who needs him to take control so he can feel complete.
Driven by personal tragedy and determined that she can at least be adventurous between the sheets, Kat embarks on a sexual journey involving titillating phone sex and a growing obsession with the toy catalog. Soon she’s led into the darker world of bondage and whippings, only to be jumped by a group of men with a fascinating and fearless leader. Pushed to her limits, she struggles against the dark seduction. Until she discovers the leader’s secret.
Reader Advisory: Story contains a wee bit of forced sex-or is it?
→Opinion | One of the sexiest stories I’ve read this year! Em Petrova has done a great job with the BDSM elements. I’m not a big fan, but this story had a spicy and sweet love behind it all.
It had a very predictable ending, and Kat must’ve been incredibly desperate not to see it! Again, it’s a romance that could’ve worked out just by talking, but don’t we love seeing it happen? Where would the fun be then? ; )
Kat’s boyfriend really surprised me, and I wasn’t expecting to like their story so much. Skin Truth has memorable scenes that you won’t easily forget.
