Melissa has had her girlfriend’s name tattooed on her arm for quite some time. Her girlfriend Kendra wants to show her commitment by doing the same. There’s only one problem. Kendra has a horrible fear of needles. Can a hot encounter in the tattoo parlor convince Kendra to put Melissa’s name in her skin?

Displaying commitment can come in many different patterns.

In My Skin is a hot, sexy f/f story that shows one scene in Melissa and Kendra’s life. But it’s an important day, a red-letter day, and that’s what makes this story jump along at a snappy pace. Kendra is off to see her life partner, Melissa, who is a tattoo artist and has her own studio. It seems Kendra has promised to match Melissa’s inked commitment with a tattoo of her own. Trouble is she’s terrified of the thought of that needle going anywhere near her. Just as well Melissa is very good at distraction techniques!

This is my first story by Ms Wylde and I enjoyed her writing style very much. It’s to the point without losing description, it’s well-crafted and certainly very sultry. The story is told in the first person narrative, one my very favorite POV’s, and Kendra’s descriptions of her lover Melissa are great. Melissa is pierced and inked and I could see her standing vividly before me as they shared dialogue and more.

In My Skin is a short story, there isn’t a whole heap of plot, but when you pick up one of these quickies you know it’s just about the characters getting down and dirty in the quickest way possible. But still, I enjoyed how In My Skin made me like Melissa and Kendra and become invested in Kendra’s dilemma and how Melissa helped her through it. The sex is hot and steamy, raunchy and rude; I wasn’t disappointed.

If f/f is your thing and you’re after a quick, coffee-break read with plenty of steamy sex then try In My Skin on for size.
