ARC REVIEW Skin Deep by Kimberly Kincaid

Book One of Kimberly Kincaid's Station Seventeen series. Wow if the rest of the series is this hot it's a good thing they are all firemen they can put themselves out. The beginning was a little slow, (I was easily distracted) but it quickly picked up and got intense. Isabella and Kellen are a great team, and really know how to steam up my glasses. Just about all the characters were previously introduced in Deep Trouble. I would suggest reading it, I missed out on it (it sounds really good and it's about Kellen's sister who witnessed a murder, I may go back and read it)  and a lot of the animosity between Kellen and Isabella roots from that book, and while they have the past issues going on at first they clear them up pretty quickly and let their attraction for each other come out.

Ex-Army Ranger sniper Kellen Walker had enough with killing people and now concentrates on saving people now as a firefighter. Kellen finds something suspicious after clearing a house after a fire and the chief calls in the PD. Isabella was instrumental in Kellen's sister's case and he blames her for her almost getting killed. Kellen also is seriously attracted to her. Isabella tries not to let the fact that Kellen doesn't like her bother her but she hide it well, if only he wasn't sex on a stick. Isabella was one of the detectives called in with Kellen's find, she has a bad feeling about it but the higher ups don't think they have enough to go on to build a case. Isabella decides that it's up to her to find enough to build a case but she needs help. Kellen was only suppose to walk her through the house incase they missed anything but now that he knows where she's going with this he's not going to let her dig around in the underbelly of the city alone badge or not. Isabella's CI gives her some information to go on and from there she thinks she got it handled but no, Kellen is there. It's a good thing too because once the guy behind it all finds out she's a cop is out to see that she suffers. The only person standing in the way between Isabella and her death is Kellen.

Overall, it was a great read. I love the internal struggle that Isabella deals with and how it drives her and how it took her love for Kellen to change all that.
