Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders

Battered by a life determined to tear him down
This quiet ex-con’s scarred hands may be the gentlest touch she’ll ever know.
…if only life were a fairy tale where Beauty was allowed to keep her Beast

Ivan thought the world was through giving him second chances. Who’d want a rough ex-con with a savior complex and a bad habit of bringing home helpless strays? Everyone in Blackwood, Virginia knew he wasn’t good enough for the fine things in life; they knew he was too damaged to save. He just needed to keep his head down, work himself to the bone, and pretend he was content with the lot he was given.

Until she came into his life. Until she changed everything.

Until he realized he would do anything, fight anyone, tear the world apart if it meant saving her.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is an intense read – very, very good, but not always easy. That said, there is some lovely humour, and a very satisfying ending.

It is most definitely a hot and passionate romance, with a fascinating sharing of power and control, which is very engaging. The musings of the leads are not overdone, and their stories are revealed, in part, through the little actions which define them. And somehow they read each other so carefully and effectively, that the speed in which they connect works.

At the same time as we enjoy the romance, we meet a whole variety of people who make the story so much richer. Cookie is a particular gem, hidden deep in the dirt! The scene is set for a series which has great potential. I am looking forward to see what comes next, in the hope that we return to Blackwood.

Adriana Anders writes romance that's dark, smart, and full of heart. She has acted and sung, slung cocktails and corrected copy. She’s worked for start-ups, multinationals and small nonprofits, but it wasn’t until she returned to her first love—writing romance—that she finally felt like she’d come home. Today, she resides with her tall French husband, two small children and fat bastard of a French cat in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where she writes the dark, gritty, emotional love stories of her heart.

Her award-winning debut novel, Under Her Skin, the first in the Blank Canvas series, will be out from Sourcebooks Casablanca in February 2017.
