Book Review: FIRST TOUCH by Laurelin Paige

Genre: Romantic Suspense/Erotica 
Publication Date: 29 December 2015

SYNOPSIS

When Emily Wayborn goes home to visit her mom while on hiatus from her hit TV show, she receives a voicemail from her former best friend, Amber. Though the two were once notorious party girls, they haven't spoken in years. Although the message might sound benign to anyone else, Amber uses a safe word that Emily recognizes, a word they always used to get out of sticky situations during their wild days. And what's more chilling than the voicemail: it turns out that Amber has gone missing.

Determined to track down her friend, Emily follows a chain of clues that lead her to the enigmatic billionaire Reeve Sallis, a hotelier known for his shady dealings and play boy reputation. Now, in order to find Amber, Emily must seduce Reeve to learn his secrets and discover the whereabouts of her friend. But as she finds herself more entangled with him, she finds she's drawn to Reeve for more than just his connection to Amber, despite her growing fear that he may be the enemy. When she's forced to choose where her loyalty lies, how will she decide between saving Amber and saving her heart?



REVIEW

5 STARS: ADDICTIVE SUSPENSE!

This book was incredible!! I loooved everything about it and I seriously can't wait for more. The story was thrilling, gritty, seductive/erotic, dark, and deliciously twisted. Nothing about this book was predictable or conventional and that was my favorite thing about it. Moreover, the suspense and seduction throughout was really to die for.

"I wasn't supposed to want to keep you, Emily."

First Touch revolves around the mystery of the supposed disappearance of Amber, Emily Wayworn's best friend. When Emily finds out that her friend is missing and that her life could be in jeopardy she decides to do everything in her power to find her. Including seducing and deceiving a man so powerful and dangerous like Reeve Sallis who could easily be more of a threat to her than an actual clue to her friend's location. Yet it's that dysfunctional relationship they embark to that makes this story so addictive... The lies, the not-knowing, the anticipation for the truths to be revealed, and the exquisite fire between these two kept me on such an edge that I just couldn't put this book down.

"He kissed me. Claimed me. Devoured me. He licked into my mouth with bold, possessive strokes, painting his presence with his tongue, stealing the air from my lungs, spinning my world on its axis." 

I really think this is a story readers should know very little about before diving in because only then everything would feel authentic and as surprising as it comes. At least that was my experience with it and I can't say it enough, I loved every minute of it. Therefore, let me just give you this last warning about this amazing book: prepare yourselves for some serious seduction, a super dominant and riveting "anti-hero," a brave heroine that will make your jaw drop, and a dose of non-stop addictive suspense that will keep you hooked from beginning to end! :D

"The problem with men who are actually a threat is that you don't ever find out how unsafe they are until it's too late."
