*** 5TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION ***
A past tragedy has left Lily Holmes burdened with a devastating secret…
Since the death of her twin sister, Lily can’t bear to be touched. Not accidentally, not casually…and certainly not intimately. This makes it impossible for her to confess to her best friend Adam Roberts that she’s in love with him. She can’t give him the sort of relationship he needs, so she watches in silence while he plans his wedding with someone else.
Enter Nikoli Kinkaid, the campus manwhore…
Nikoli is a self-proclaimed connoisseur of women, and he wants to add Lily to his list of conquests, but she wants nothing to do with him—until he makes her an offer she can’t refuse. He’ll teach her to enjoy human contact again, giving her a chance to win over Adam, while Nikoli uses all his considerable charm to seduce her.
But Lily raises the stakes…
Lily loves cars. Her late father was a racer, and she grew up under the hood of a car and on the racetrack. Nikoli has a limited edition 1970 Plymouth Barracuda she covets, so she informs him the terms of their deal also require he not sleep with anyone for six months. If he does, she’ll win the car. If she surrenders and ends up in his bed, his beloved ’Cuda is his to keep.
In an intricate dance of control and surrender, a reluctant friendship becomes something more. Lily begins to crave things she never believed she could, and Nikoli realizes there is more at stake than his reputation.
If Lily overcomes her phobia, will she crave Adam’s touch as she’s starting to crave Nikoli’s? Or will she only find pleasure from the touch of a semi-reformed manwhore?
Touch Me Not
I thought this was a really captivating story and I enjoyed reading it! I felt that I could kind of connect with the characters and they were very lovable as well!
Please trust the reviews! I was in the middle of a reading rut and could find anything that caught my attention because they were basically all the same! HOWEVER, this book was not what I expected. It was unbelievably amazing and kept my attention so well that I finished it in a day because I couldn’t put it down. It was such a beautiful storyline and didn’t go in the direction I expected. I also love how there’s snippets of the story line that set up the second book in the series so flawlessly you don’t even realize it until towards the end! I look forward to reading the rest of the series and many more books by this wonderful author!
It was a wonderful book that I could not put down.
