FIRST TOUCH by Laurelin Paige My Review just in time before the conclusion is released.

(First and Last #1)
By Laurelin Paige

My Review

 This book packs a punch!  Dark, erotic and suspenseful, it is a mind-teaser I will not soon forget.

The complex relationship between Amber and Emily seeps through as the book evolves.  Complicated and intriguing, the tie between them explains why Emily is driven to find out what happened to Amber and will stop at nothing to find her missing friend.

Reeve is a mystery all by himself.  Appearing cold, calculating and damaged, he is the perfect dark man you would expect to stop at nothing to have his way.  Did he kill Amber?  Was her message to Emily a distress call in the midst of trying to break free from his hold?

The link to the Greek Mafia is all over Reeve's character.  How deep is he involved in their nefarious dealings and human trafficking? Emily is determined to get close enough to him to extract the answers.  Risking her life means nothing to her if along the way she is able to solve the mystery of Amber's disappearance.

The plot is so engrossing I found myself reading into the early morning hours to read one more chapter  hoping to find out what happens next.  I am looking forward to the conclusion soon to be released, called Last Kiss.

Recommended highly to anyone who loves  dark romances, suspenseful novels, and does not mind that the ending has a cliffhanger.  With the conclusion about to be released mid-June, you will not have long to wait to find out what happens next.

When Emily Wayborn goes home to visit her mom while on hiatus from her hit TV show, she receives a voicemail from her former best friend, Amber. Though the two were once notorious party girls, they haven't spoken in years. Although the message might sound benign to anyone else, Amber uses a safe word that Emily recognizes, a word they always used to get out of sticky situations during their wild days. And what's more chilling than the voicemail: it turns out that Amber has gone missing.

Determined to track down her friend, Emily follows a chain of clues that lead her to the enigmatic billionaire Reeve Sallis, a hotelier known for his shady dealings and play boy reputation. Now, in order to find Amber, Emily must seduce Reeve to learn his secrets and discover the whereabouts of her friend. But as she finds herself more entangled with him, she finds she's drawn to Reeve for more than just his connection to Amber, despite her growing fear that he may be the enemy. When she's forced to choose where her loyalty lies, how will she decide between saving Amber and saving her heart?
