Beneath the Skin - Lauren Dane I love Lauren Dane as an author. She is not afraid to take on difficult situation and complex characters. She has the ability to write female leads who have had a tough lives, yet still keep on moving forward.Yet, with this series (de La Vega Cats) I can not help but feel that our three female leads (Renee, Kendra, Mia) all seem "strong, sassy, and sultry". In fact, I swear they said same phrases in each of their books.This book moves away from the witches aspect and moves into the Others-haters. I enjoyed the overarching plot development of the series.Gibson is our hot, sexy shifter, and I agree he was yummy! I enjoyed the book, but it was not my favorite. I still love Trinity the best.
