TOUCHED Book Review
Reviewed by Author Tamera Lawrence *****
Remy O’Malley has a special gift. The seventeen year old can heal people’s injuries with her magical touch. But even though she has this uncanny ability, her own life is broken and flawed from years of abuse at the hands of her stepfather, who beats Remy’s mother on a regular basis. After one particular beating aimed at Remy, the teen’s father comes to her reluctant rescue, forcing her to live with him and his new family. With the seed of hope in her heart, Remy becomes an unwillingly house guest, already surmising rejection by her new found family, who seems too good to be true. But her life takes an unexpected turn when she meets Asher Blackwell on the beach, and she finds he has a special gift of his own. Even as Remy’s stepsister warns her away from Asher, Remy can’t help but be attracted to the bad boy and the sparks begin to fly. But can they really overcome the age old obstacles standing in their way between healer and protector?
TOUCHED by author Corrine Jackson is a riveting read that grabbed my attention from page one and held it for the remainder of the novel. Remy is a diverse character filled with charisma and you can’t but help be drawn to her many facets and her healing touch. Equally compelling is Asher Blackwell and the way the writer brings this special pair together. Touched is a great read by a talented author.
