Blog Tour 'First Touch' by Laurelin Paige

Today I’m super excited to participate in the Blog Tour of ‘First Touch’ by Laurelin Paige. ‘First Touch’ is an Erotic Romance Suspense novel and the first one in a sensational new series by the New York Times bestselling author.

About the Book:
Desperate for the truth. Obsessed by desire…

When Emily Wayborn receives an answerphone message from her former best friend Amber, she knows something is seriously wrong. Emily hasn't spoken to Amber in years, and when Amber uses a safe word in her message that Emily recognises -- a word they always used to get out of sticky situations during their wild partying days -- she knows Amber needs her help. But when Emily tries to find her, she discovers that Amber is missing.

Determined to track her down, Emily follows a chain of clues that lead her to enigmatic billionaire Reeve Sallis. Renowned for his shady dealings and playboy reputation, Emily is convinced that Reeve knows something about Amber's disappearance. To try and discover the truth, Emily sets out to seduce him. But when she's forced to decide where her loyalty lies, how will Emily choose between saving Amber and saving her heart?

If you devoured Fifty Shades and Sylvia Day's Bared To You series, you will love the latest intoxicating, passionate and addictive novel from New York Times bestseller Laurelin Paige.

My Review:

My expectations for ‘First Touch’ were immediately set when I read the reference to Fifty Shades. Although I love reading books like this, it’s always a little scary to read books of which your so excited because there’s always a chance you’ll be disappointed. But when it was time to start reading ‘First Touch’ I dived in as soon as I could.

The beginning of this book was very surprising and even a bit unexpected. I was waiting for the Romance, but there wasn’t much Romance to find. There definitely was some attraction between the two main characters.. but it wasn’t very Romantic.  What also surprised me was the this book immediately started right away. There was now slow ‘getting-to-know-the-characters’ part in this book.
Even though I missed the Romance in the beginning, the suspense was from the beginning very good. I was intrigued by the characters and I couldn't wait to read more and to find out wat Reeve's secret was.

The last half of the book was definitely the best part if you ask me. I began to like the characters more and I was completely pulled into the story. There still wasn’t as much Romance as I hoped there would be but it definitely became a better story for me. 

In the end I still had a lot of questions left and there was definitely a huge cliffhanger.. Overall this book was fun and interesting. Not as good as Fifty Shades, but definitely a nice read I would recommend to Romantic Suspense readers.

About the Author:

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine.

For more information about Laurelin Paige please visit her website, or visit her on Facebook and Twitter.

I received this book from the Little, Brown Book Group in exchange for my honest review.
