Product description

Product Description

Sylla Viola has a foolproof plan. On the run from bounty hunters, she's found the perfect way to hide--a DNA mod that changes her into a male. That is, it's perfect until she runs into the one alien who can see through her disguise.

Echtei Bronson is shocked to bump into an unknown male of his same species--a male who should not exist. One minute in this stranger's company threatens Echtei's control. One glimpse of the woman inside and he can't keep his hands off. One heated touch and he gives in to the need to wreak havoc on anyone who touches Sylla--a woman who could never stay with a man forever tied to family.

Echtei won't give Sylla up without a fight. It's face the impossible or die trying, even if survival means war.

Willing Skin is a full-length science fiction romance, standalone novel in the Space Grit series with a happily ever after ending.

This is the first ever story I've read where a character was swapping between physically being female or male (not just being gender fluid but actually being either female or male physically).
I enjoyed that aspect of the story the most. Would have liked it to be a bit longer and to have explored all it had to offer within the story - much more than it did.
But it was still a good story.
I haven't read any of the other stories in the series but that didn't confuse me or diminish my enjoyment in any way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action packed smexy scifi 30 March 2016
By Pip Green - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What I liked:
I wasn't sure if I would like this but I decided to take a leap of faith, and I'm glad I did. Take a deep breath because the tension and action never let up for a second! It didn't feel at all like 95K, in a good way because of the seat of your pants pacing. The tech elements were intriguing and appealed hugely to my SF side without being overwhelming for anyone who isn't that into SciFi - the concept of the skin suit for the heroine and all the mental and physical conflict it involved was hugely original and completely fascinating to me. Plus the author excels at writing explicit sex scenes but in a way that doesn't set me cringing at the words used. I was also fascinated by the cyborg bounty hunter.

What I didn't like:
Some of the phrasing got a bit repetitive toward the end, and the constant to-ing and fro-ing to the same places got a bit wearing. Also the amount of time the central couple spent snogging, fondling, and/or more involved pushed my believeability limit considering how much danger Sylla was supposedly in. These were very minor niggles overall though.

In conclusion:
While a bit heavy on the sex scenes for my personal taste, this is one hot, exciting, tense, and all-round fun romp on a space station, with some uber fascinating tech including the heroine's ability to gender-flip. I'm still thinking about the story and the characters weeks after reading. If you find the idea of switched gender sex offensive, this is not for you. About the closest comparison I can make is maybe an X-rated version of Farscape where the Scarrans are more human and sexy rather than scary, and with a Terminator-style assassin. Although book four of this series, it reads perfectly fine as a standalone so you can jump in mid-series without feeling lost.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Reading the Paranormal Review 14 March 2016
By Kelly Rubidoux - Published on

I was looking for something gritty and sexy when I picked this book up. It work for me. Enough so I snagged a couple others in the series to see how the couples who were already hooked up came together.

(But that's another story for another time. Or just later this evening.)

Sylla is in a tough spot. The only way to escape the hunter after her is to change herself as radically as possible. It's bad luck she runs into the only species in space who can tell she's not what is. On the plus side, Echtei turns out to like what he sees--both her male Scoriah disguise and her very female self--and things get hot and heavy pretty quickly.

I liked Echtei and Sylla. I liked Echtei's brothers. I even liked surly Tee, who was looks like he's going to have a very rough time when his book rolls around. Basically, this book hit all my happy sexy sci-fi buttons. I'm going in for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it! 2 October 2016

Looking for a good book to read? Well, I was and am I glad I found this. A sci-fi space opera, this is a series involving a family of aliens and their mates. Lots of action, romance and lots of heated sex! A quick read, I didn't put my reader down until I finished. Has an hea for the couple in this book but the series is not done yet. I am loving it! But it helps to read the previous books in the series to get the full effect of the story.
3.0 out of 5 stars Another Tension filled story 4 May 2016

Another tension filled story as another of the Scoriah finds a mate. Not that the mate is that thrilled or that nice a person. There is more story line development in the plot. Once again there is danger and romance between two character who are really not that nice. Drake does a good job making them appealing.

While I enjoyed this book well enough (and boy was it spicy hot in some places) the plot didn't totally capture me and I really don't care enough to read the books in the series before or after this one.
