Excerpt: Beginning of a love scene
Tia and Alex have known each other since they were kids. Alex is Tia's brother's best friend - and until now Tia has always been of limits, married, but she's at the end of her divorce with her abusive-ex.
Alex has wanted Tia as long as he can remember and when he comes home from Afghanistan with an injury he finds his feelings for Tia haven't lessened, they grown, and the first encouragement she gives him to move on her, he does.
But not all is peaceful, Tia's ex is harassing her and she's weight down by the things he's said, feeling ashamed and vulnerable and far from sexy, she's not sure at all that she can be what Alex wants.
This is what Erotic Romance is supposed to be like, emotional, filled with tension sexual and non-sexual, I loved the feeling of threat that gave the story depth, I loved how Tia was broken and how much Alex was healing her just by showing her she could be wanted again, beautiful again. Domestic abuse is something I like seeing brought out in books, it's so important for women to know you can get out of that life and have a new one and feel the right kind of love and appresiation again - and I loved Touch Me for that!
I liked this a lot! Touch Me had the perfect balance of love, sex, tension and gentleness - a mix to get any girls heart racing! Tia I loved she was so unsure, but determined, she'd been through so much and was still full of kindness, some of it still for her ex who'd come home with Traumatic Brain Injury from the army and wasn't fully to blame for his actions. Alex was so wonderfully normal, even if he was an alpha and liked controlling his women in the bedroom, he was kind, he loved Tia and he didn't let her freak out and escape him when things got rough. Now, who could resist that?! Alex made a great hero for Tia and for the story!
I liked the cover, though Tia in it comes over more confident and naughtier than she does in the book, bit of a mix there, but still a great cover, I like the simplicity, the font and the color sexy but subtle!
