I honestly did not expect to love this book as much as I did but it blew my mind. The beginning started out a little slow but when it picked up, Whoa! Reeve was so intense and sexy as hell; I loved how much of a mystery he was and I was constantly trying to figure out what he would do next. His character is one that not everyone will like, since he's a very hard man to understand, but I loved him.
Emily's past was oddly intriguing. It was full of sleeping with men for gifts and doing drugs, which normally I hate to hear about and would make me hate a character but in this case it just made me ten times more curious about her. Her character, past and present, was a good one but I have so much more I want to learn about her so I can't wait to get the next book.
Overall, First Touch was an amazing read and I'm kicking myself for not reading this author before now. I have to say, I'm not a big fan of just the heroines POV but I think it added to the mystery and suspense in this book which is what sucked me into the story. I want everyone I know to read this book and love it like I did - so get to it, people!
