First Touch by Laurelin Paige

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I am SO glad this is a duet. This story could not have been wrapped up properly within one book. I was glued to my Kindle, racing through the pages to find out what was going to happen. I can barely make myself write this review before leaping headfirst into the second book.
Reeve. Oh my, Reeve. So in control. So seemingly apathetic. He really makes her work for it. And I LOVE it.
I like the backstories. Even that is very involved, and really sets up who these characters are, and how they came to be the people they are today. The sources of their respective damage.
I enjoy the secondary characters as well, like Joe and Chris. Reeve does NOT approve of Emily spending time with Chris, mainly because he knows Chris wants to get her into bed. He gets possessive. And jealous. And why is that so hot in a book when it is so terrifying in real life?
Anyway, excellent book. My first from this author, but certainly won’t be the last. I seem to have found a new author to fangirl over- yay!

Emily Wayborn is finally her own woman.

After a string of shameful relationships and reckless partying with her best friend Amber, she’s now a successful voiceover actress, her wild past and everyone in it firmly behind her. Until she receives a cryptic voicemail from her former friend that sends her spiraling into the darkness she thought she had outrun. One thing is clear from the message, Amber is in trouble.

Determined to track down her friend, Emily follows a chain of clues that leads her to Reeve Sallis, a gorgeous and equally dangerous hotelier known for his power games and shady dealings. Now, in order to find Amber, Emily must return to her playgirl ways to uncover his secrets and track down her friend. But as she becomes more entangled with him, she finds she’s drawn to Reeve and his depravity despite her growing conviction that he may be the one responsible for Amber’ s disappearance.

Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes. Just out here doing my part for humanity- these books won't read themselves.
