Review for Touched by Vicki Green

'What your body desires
Your heart can't have'

Jade Morley was not your average stripper. Her rules. Her way. No sex. Touching only.
D.J. Sexy Lady by day, Stripper Angel by night, her life became one with no emotions, no heart and no soul until one night he walked in.

Knox Dunway has one thing. Money. Women throw themselves at him every day and he takes what he wants, when he wants but there’s no feeling, no love and no commitment. He wants more. Growing tired of trying to find ‘the one’ he walks into a strip club one night and everything changes.

Will Jade ever give in to her heart or will her survivor instincts always win?

 Review by Angela:
Jade Morley, disc jockey by day, and stripper by night, doesn't do love. She doesn't get attached, and that's how she likes it. She can't let anyone get near her for fear they would find out about her past. A past that she still has trouble moving on from.

Knox Dunway has a life that is successful and a personal life without attachments. That's how he's preferred it, until now. He wants more, but is unsure if he'll ever find someone who wants him  and not comes with him.  He has walls built to protect himself from the past and the present, and he's not sure they can ever be broken by a woman - even though he now wants them to be.

Knox and Jade meet one another at a chance encounter at the strip club where she works, and are instantly attracted to one another. They both feel things that they have never felt before, yet they seem familiar at the same time.  Knox instantly decides he wants Angel (the stripper name she gives him when they meet), and gives it everything he has in getting her. His alpha male comes out, and the wooing of Angel begins. And let me tell you... that fine man knows how to woo a woman! I'm surprised that town has any flowers left after Knox gets done!  Jade/Angel is very hesitant about letting him get close to her, but with a little encouragement from her best friend, and neighbor, Amber, Jade decides to give Know a shot and goes out with him. And after that one date.... Knox claims her as HIS and lets her know it. Jade isn't sure what to think about that declaration... but he can sure claim me! Did I mention he works out... a LOT? 

Something happens to his Angel that has him taking care of her and pulls them closer together. After a few misunderstandings the two finally decide they want to be together as an official couple. The one thing I loved about these characters is the fact that even though they have secrets and a past that they are still haunted by, they still are open with each other about it and work together to deal with these problems. I don't mind angst in books, because that's just how real life can be. But, there are couples that talk to each other and face problems head on, as well. 

Jade and Knox are two very strong characters, but the vulnerability Green brings out in them totally has you attached them.  The sparks between these two are HAWT, and the author writes some scenes between the two that kept me on edge causing me to read this book in one sitting! IT.WAS.THAT.GOOD.

I don't want to tell you everything and spoil the book for you, but I can tell you that Touched is a book you must read.  It has the right balance between sex and plot. The characters are strong and interesting. It has enough twists to keep you drawn in without over-doing it.  They only bad thing that I could say about this book is that I wish it was longer! I want to know more about Knox and his Angel!
