Ava Gray
« on: October 26, 2009, 03:50:06 pm »
This is a thread for Ava Gray's (AKA as Ann Aguirre)  new romantic paranormal suspense series.

I was lucky enough to win an ARC and I have to say it was definitely one of the best books I read this year and its in my top 5 :D

Skin Game is about a con woman called Kyra who is on the run and is being tracked down by a hitman who contracted to kill her.
If you enjoy Linda Howard's early stuff this is very reminicent of those books and ESPECIALLY the heroes!!!
I cannot say enough good things about this book and series - More info check out the excerpt here:

I am certainly looking forward to reading this book.  I think I will have to withdraw from the world for a bit once I get my copy :D

:) When is this one coming out?  :-[ Never mind. It's right there on the page -- June 1. LOL

I don't want to write the great American novel. I want to write the great American beach read. It pays better!

Well, I didn't love it but I did like it. I'll probably read the next one Skin Tight. Although I liked Rey and Kyra, Foster was the most interesting character for me. An interesting mix of good guy and bad guy, and not at all predictable. I foudn the ending, with Reyes on teh boat, to be predictable, but overall, little about the book was.

Charmed, I found Foster more interesting than Rey as well. That's why I'm really looking forward to the next one. :P
