Beth had been good at pretending to be this happy carefree girl – bubbly and energetic. Looking at her now, I saw a girl who was anything but carefree. She obviously had demons that haunted her, and I knew from experience that fighting certain demons can be almost impossible.
I listened through the door, making sure Lily had gone. “This isn’t over. Me keeping your secret from Lily is not a sign I’m letting this go. It’s a sign that I’m going to be a thorn in your side until you let me help you.”
Beth prickled at my comment and unfurled herself from the protective ball she had curled into. “I don’t need your help!”
“Yes, you do.” I took another step towards her. Beth took a step back. “And the way I see it, you don’t have much of a choice.”
“What are you talking about?”
“Do you want Lily to know what you’ve been doing?”
Beth’s eyes pooled with unshed tears. She looked hurt by my words. “Please don’t tell Lily,” she pleaded in a whisper.
“I’ll tell her everything unless you let me help you.” The look of fear and disbelief on Beth’s face made me feel like a total jackass.
Her expression changed again. She glowered at me like she wanted to set me on fire. “I hate you so much right now.”
Her words, she meant them. And hearing her tell me she hated me… it hurt, because somewhere along the way I had fallen in love with her.
“I know you do. But I’d rather you hate me for the right reasons, than like me for the wrong ones. I guess we’ll both have to figure out how to fucking live with that.”
WARNING…HAVE YOUR TISSUES READY GIRLS!!!
I knew I was in for a treat with Hayden and Beth’s story. There love is a once in a lifetime type of love. This book was heartbreaking and beautiful all at the same time. Skin deep is my favorite book of the series. Pamela’s writing was phenomenal in this book. This is an emotional read but so worth all the tears.
Beth has a secret and oh what a secret. Whilst trying to deal with her troubles we find a beautiful woman, strong, sweet, loving are all word I would use to describe her but Brave is by far the top of the list.
Hayden is 100% swoon worthy; everyone needs a knight in shining amour he is loving, patient and Kind. He wants Beth fiercely but knows that the only way to have her is to help her and become her rock.
Together their relationship grows due to the fact that they help one another heal from the inside out and this is what makes them the strong couple they become.

About The Author
I grew up in Alabama and have always been an avid reader. I had a stack of those Little Golden Books and I can remember reading Three Little Kittens over and over and over again. It was my favorite.Fast forward and the older I got the more in love with books I became. So, I'm admitting that I am a huge nerd. The only reading I don't like are those math word problems. And I'm okay with that because no one has ever asked me in real life... "If I give you two bananas and take away six apples, how long will it take the southbound train to collide with the northbound train if Johnny left his house at midnight?" It just doesn't happen.So, yeah, books are my thing.Oh and music. All kinds. Love.It.Facebook | Twitter | Amazon | Goodreads
