Amy's 3.5 star ARC Review of Her Touch By Alexa Riley
Eli Strong got out of the military and all he wanted to do was get better. He never expected that the officer he was living with would have a daughter who tested his honor.
Maggie Drummond has been moved around more times than she can count, and starting at a new high school sucks. But when a wounded Marine comes to live with her and her dad, suddenly Maggie figures out what home is.
She’s forbidden fruit, and he’s trying to not to taste… But desire can only be denied for so long. Circumstances keep pulling them back together, and something truly unforeseen happens. Overnight, Eli becomes a guardian and Maggie his ward.
Will Eli keep his hands off Maggie? Will Maggie like it if he doesn’t? Will the two of them break the law because it feels so good? Only one way to find out!
Warning: This book will make you ache in the best way possible! It’s so sweet it’s disgusting, and yet we just can’t stop. It’s a coming-of-age story that’s just what the author ordered. So eat up and enjoy!
3. 5 stars
So I love the military romance and the wounded man with the strong woman that accepts and helps him heal but this one was kind of ... but I guess the lead female's age would play into the actions of her character.
Eli is supposed to recover at his Major's home. Recovering and keeping his hands where they need to be which is off the Major's underage daughter is a given. Knowing he can't do that he leaves. A year later he returns and Maggie accepts him whole heartedly within minutes ... uh .. .really?
So this is where the story takes up for the most part. There is tons of drama centered around Eli's return and the getting together with Maggie. A Major is certainly going to be overprotective of his daughter especially with an age difference of several years. However in this story you also have a dual tale weaved in centered around Maggie's dad Thomas. This part of the story was really good.
I was more interested in his end then what I am guessing should have been the major plot. Click this one up and give it a whirl. You might love it. I didn't hate it but heck to the no of Sorry I walked out I love you lets hit the sheets ... um .. no. In saying that I do love Alexa and her writing just this one wasn't my cup of tea.
Thank you for the ARC --
