Review: First Touch, by Laurelin Paige

First Touch (First and Last, #1)First Touch by Laurelin Paige
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After seeing so many glowing reviews for this book from friends, I have been dying to dive into this book. Then I saw that it would be several months before the next book would be released, and I decided to hold off until I could read them together. Alas, my curiosity got the best of me and I couldn’t wait that long…even knowing that the first book would end with a cliffhanger.

Now that I’ve read it, I can see what all the fuss is about. This book blew me away! It was everything that I crave in a romantic suspense. Intriguing characters? Check. Mystery and danger? Check. Smoking hot sex? Check. This book had it all.

The story centers on Emily, a beautiful young actress, who is trying to figure out what has happened to her best friend, Amber. The two haven’t spoken for several years after a falling out over a man. However, when Amber leaves a message for Emily using their code word to ask for help, Emily feels compelled to help her estranged friend.

Despite hiring a private investigator to get to the bottom of Amber’s whereabouts, Emily also decides to dig around on her own. She suspects that Amber’s last known boyfriend, Reeve, might have something to do with her disappearance. Setting out to get close to Reeve, she finds herself in more danger than she bargained for.

Although this story was a little slow to get going for me, once it took off, I couldn’t pull myself away from it. I was completely absorbed in this story. Just like I knew I would be, I’m going to be pulling my hair out while I wait for the next book.

Even though I kind of guessed the ending, I still wasn’t prepared for it when it happened. Funny how that happens sometimes! It was still every bit as upsetting, despite the fact that I expected it. Everything was still turned upside down and my heart was ripped from my chest.

This book is definitely a new favorite of mine. I loved it! This is one of those books that I’d die to get my hands on the sequel early. The wait is going to kill me, but it was soooo worth it. You must read this book!
