About Bone Deep:
The boy who wants forgiveness…
Haunted by the train accident his father instigated, college freshman Krister Ledoux is obsessed with finding the person sending him cryptic hate mail. He knows it’s one of them—a family member of one of the accident victims, and he’s willing to go to hell and back to find out which one.
The girl he can’t forget…
She was a stranger who kissed him in the middle of the train station, and now she’s the girl who pleads with her eyes for Krister to be the distraction she’s so desperate for. Krister doesn’t know what it is about her, why he’s sucked into playing Cambria’s game… All he knows is that when he’s with her, he isn’t consumed with thoughts of the crash.
The collision that can’t be avoided…
Cambria doesn’t know who Krister is—that he’s the son of the town’s most infamous killer, and he knows if his true identity surfaces he’ll lose her forever. However secrets can’t stay buried forever, and now Krister must fight to prove that their bone-deep connection is far more powerful than the hatred she now has toward him.
Miss Riki’s Review:
Ever since I first read Brooklyn Skye’s STRIPPED, I’ve been a huge fan, so when I found out that she had another New Adult novel out I was beyond excited. Staying true to her previous stunning work, BONE DEEP was emotional and sexy- everything you could possibly ask for in a New Adult novel.
What always strikes me immediately about Skye’s work is how well she writes male POV, and BONE DEEP is written completely in the POV of her leading man, Krister. He’s a complex main character with a tortured past and a lot on his mind as he struggles with the repercussions of his father’s actions. I absolutely loved seeing how Krister changes as he allows his love for Cambria to help him heal from his past, and seeing his emotional struggle to tell her the truth is heartbreaking. I love a book that takes a main character on a journey, and in BONE DEEP, Krister grows in his love for Cambria.
BONE DEEP is ultimately a story about two broken individuals who find love and solace in one another, despite the complications of truth and circumstance. It is emotionally driven and plays nicely with themes of grief and redemption. The story is a wonderful blend of sweet, quiet moments and sexy intrigue, and the chemistry between Cambria and Krister is evident from their first meeting. Despite an instant connection, the love story never feels forced in any way. There’s a beautiful slow burn as Krister and Cambria feel their way through their individual grief.
I highly recommend BONE DEEP as compelling New Adult with beautifully rendered and complex characters. It is yet another wonderful novel from Brooklyn Skye!
