Review: First Touch by Laurelin Paige

Friday, January 22, 2016

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?

My Review
First Touch was my first book read from Laurelin Paige and I have to say I was definitely not disappointed. In fact, I ended up getting so wrapped up in the book itself that I would read a couple chapters a day just to make it last. Reeve scared me and excited me all at the same time. It's not too often I read books in which the hero is kind of feared at times and very obviously ruthless, powerful and not to be messed around with. 

Reeve and Emily are addicting. Their story is so mysterious- I felt like my heart was trying to escape my chest sometimes. Not knowing what was going to happen next or who I could trust made me anxious, nervous and so, so pumped to slowly discover the answers to everything I was asking myself as I continued reading.

I went into the book with a very open mind and I found it to be very important in this case. If you are easily offended, judgmental to views unlike your own, or expecting a relationship full of hearts and flowers- this isn't a book for you. This is also NOT a book to read in one sitting. I had to space out how much I read just to give it all time to settle and make sure I understood what was going on. To go into this book, a reader has to keep an open mind and be able to differentiate reality from fiction because after all, this was a flipping brilliant book to escape reality in. If you like dark romances, mysterious and suspenseful story lines, please get this book. I highly recommend it.
