Review of First Touch by Laurelin Paige

The bit on the back...

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?

I actually had a copy of Last Kiss before I had a copy of this book and as the two should definitely be read in sequence I downloaded and started First Touch pretty much straight away. The story is all about main characters Emily and Reeve and the one thing that ties them together.

Emily makes it her mission to find out what happened to her friend Amber and she thinks that Reeve will lead her to the answer. Emily is head-strong, tenacious and at times it seemed like she would stop at nothing to find out what happened to Amber, regardless of her own safety.

Reeve is the definition of powerful, dark and dangerous. He is a hard one to read and Emily finds out the extent of that. The story is all from Emily's POV so her feelings about Reeve project onto you as the reader. In the first half of the story I always felt a little uneasy every time Emily was with him. He's powerful but sometimes overpowering and a lot of the times he is manipulative.

Emily gets lost in Reeve but is still constantly searching for clues about Amber. The story is fast paced and will keep you hooked throughout. The characters are well developed and although at times I wanted to warn Emily away from Reeve her determination is commendable.

This book is edgy and sexy and had me captivated from the very beginning, I started Last Kiss straight after finishing this because it ended on a completely unpredictable, unforeseen & AMAZING cliffhanger!
