Okay, okay...I know...I wrote it. But if I don't love it then why should you? I had a blast writing Kerry and Dante's story and I hope you have as much fun reading it.
Lady Raven RAVE! for readers

Kerry Smith is a famous model; however, she has a special gift that scares her when she comes into physical contact with anyone who touches her. Dante Coltari knows Kerry is his mate and realizes the danger that surrounds her. He needs to get her out of her comfort place that she has built around her in order to show her what she is.

Kerry, a model, meets Dante at her friends wedding. Dante knows her as his mate right away. Someone is trying to harm Kerry & Her best friends new husband sends Dante as her bodyguard to her photo shoot in New Orleans. She likes him, but she has a problem. She can't touch people. They all think she's a germaphobe.

I liked this story. It was a new way to describe shifters & the secret life of the puritains etc. Having to keep it a secret from almost everyone & only trusting a select f
1 Star

Basically a carbon copy of book #1.

The world building is still lacking with no new information provided on the background of the Amoveo race. As mentioned in my review of the previous book, the Amoveo simply have too many abilities, all of which have been done before and none of the characters are unique in any way.

The writing is excessively descriptive and often repetitious while the suspense plot is underdeveloped with a mediocre villain whose motivation is unclear - is it rev

My overall enjoyment of this book was marred by a reviewer here on Goodreads who thought it was okay to reveal who The Punisher was and what happened to other key figures in the story in the first few sentences of her review. I was so disappointed after reading this that it had a major affect on my enjoyment of this book. One of the things I loved most about Unleashed was I was taken by surprised when all was revealed. I read obsessively to the end just to learn who the evil one was. I lost the ...more

Kerry has never been able to have a normal relationship with anyone in her life. That's because any touch causes her blinding mental pain and allows her to see the darkest corners inside other people's minds. Her friend Samantha is the only one whose touch she can bear, because --unbeknownst to her-- Samantha isn't completely human. She is a hybrid: a child of one human parent and one Amoveo, a race of shapeshifters. Kerry, too, is a hybrid, though she has no idea that such a thing even exists.

Review coming soon on GraveTells! I'll post the full review here a few weeks after that.

This second story in the Amoveo Legend (wasn't it "Legacy" before?) is even better than the first. I loved Dante in Untouched and I also really liked Kerry - those two nearly stole the show from Sam and Malcolm in their own novel, and that was before they knew each other!

Untouched is as sensitive and instantly likeable as Kerry, and as fierce and intuitive as Dante. It draws the reader in, moving along quic

Book Two in Humphreys The Amoveo Legend series. Thought I better get myself caught up before Untamed gets here; Especially since luck allowed me to win an ARC (so I can read and review it for Sara).

Humphrey starts us out at Samantha and Malcom's wedding - which is a brilliant move. It only cements the relationship of Unleashed's heroine and hero.

Kerry and Dante's characters were introduced in the first book. So we readers get a glimpse into their person, so we got into the book with a minor

Another AWESOME installment from Sara Humphreys.

This was an amazing story.

Sara Humphreys has a unique writing talent, she makes you feel everything the character is feeling with such conviction.

What a story my favorite so far.

I have to say Dante is an amazing character such strength and respect and the flirtatious banter he has with Kerry is hilarious. You sit there grinning while reading the pages like your apart of the story itself. I absolutely loved Kerry as a character a real w

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Untouched, Book 2 in the Amoveo Legend. This picks up right where Unleashed left off. Once again this is a great book of sexy shape-shifters, romance, danger and love. Dante, an Amoveo from the fox clan has met his mate, Kerry Smithson, while protecting his cousin’s mate. Kerry, a model, has no idea about the Amoveo, or who and what she really is. Kerry has lived her entire life avoiding physical contact. If she touches someone, she feels horrible pain and ...more

When I read the first book in this series, Unleashed, I enjoyed it but I was not completely blown away by it. I was excited to have a chance to review Untouched, but was a little hesitant. After reading the book though, all of my fears have been laid to rest, because I am now completely in love with this world!

In the first book, we got acclimated to the world and all the mythology that came with it. We also get introduced to all the characters, but had no back story for any of them. With Untouch
A review for The Romance Reviews.

UNTOUCHED is one of those books that has me kicking myself for not knowing about this series sooner. Sara Humphreys has created a fantastic world of shape shifters, humans, and the fate that brings them together. I fell in love with these characters as well as this story line and cannot wait to get more from this series.

Kerry is a plus-sized model who is harboring a secret. When she touches people she gets agonizing pain that leaves her incapacitated. Because of

Kerry has been having nightmares ever since her cousin tortured her to call her best friend Sam, so he could kill her. She feels so guilty for giving in, and she keeps seeing the strange eyes of the man who tried to rescue her. If only she had been brave enough to touch AJ, to see what he was up to. But touching people means visions and unbearable pain for Kerry. The only person she could touch without pain, was Sam. All she would see was a big, grey wolf. When ever her adoptive parents would to ...more

The Amoveo are shapeshifters whose existence is threatened by the Cadeo, a family of humans. But their dwindling numbers are not just caused by murder. Many Amoveo have difficulty finding their mates. If a male fails to find his mate before his 30th birthday he will slowly begin to loose his powers. Naturally many are quite desperate to find their true mate. For some the news that Amoveo can mate with some humans is good, for others it is the worst news...

Unleashed, the first book in the Amoveo
Currently on book 1 so I can read them in order. Review to come. Can't wait to get to it!

4 1/2 stars. I really enjoyed this one, even more so than the first. The flow was really nice. It was good from page 1. I really enjoyed the characters, and even LIKED the heroine! Unheard of for me! Dante was studly and plenty drool worthy. Anyway, the romance and the plot unfolded at a nice pace and complimented each other very well. The end was really gripping and

I adored Untouched, it was so endearing. I loved the storyline and the oh so tender romantic caresses with plenty of kick-butt, take no prisoners toughness that makes for a wonderful fast paced paranormal page-turner. I plan to go back to the beginning of the series today.
Thanks, Ms. Humphreys for a captivating page-turner that left an indelible imprint on my heart.
I devoured the first in this series, and did the same with this one! It didn't fail to suck me in to the story. I follow the author

I really liked this book! Even though it was the second in a series, I never felt lost or left out in what was going on. It also didn’t lessen my desire to read the first and the next books in the Amoveo series!

Untouched is a Fated Mate, Shifter novel for adults. The story is about Kerry and Dante and their fight against the Purist. In the Amoveo world there are two kinds of shifters – the ones who believe their mates can only be a pure Amoveo and those who are open to finding their mate no matt

Another good read. This is an interesting world with interesting characters that quickly grow on you. I can't wait to see what happens next and to see how far these purists will go.

Kerry, a successful model, has a reputation as being an ice queen and a germa-phobe. But the reality is that she feels intense pain when her skin touches another and along with it comes a whole lot of info about that person. She feels incredibly lonely as the only person she can touch and not feel pain is her best friend, Samantha.

Dante knows Kerry is his mate as soon as he sees her and is thankfully hired by one of his best friends as Kerry’s bodyguard on a photo shoot. Everyone else knows she’

I'd give this book more than 5 stars if I could. There was just something different about it that I LOVED!!! Since I missed the first book in the series I'm going to go back and read that and I can't wait to read Untamed........The characters, and storyline in this just hold your undivided attention from the very first page...GREAT BOOK

Rip-roaring headstrong along into the series I go! Suspenseful and exciting. Lots of shifting, disappearing/reappearing and using of inherited gifts. No surprises with Dante and Kerry after reading Unleashed. Kinda figured where this was heading with the fox and the panther. The books in this series can be read as a standalone but are intertwined with past and future stories. However not enough to find yourself confused and wondering what just happened! William, Steven, Samantha and Malcolm are ...more

Take a fox shifter bodyguarding a hybrid panther shifter who doesn't know about her ability to shift, add psychic powers by touch to the heroine's talents and make them painful when she touches someone. What could go wrong? Oh yeah, add a group that wants them dead and set it in the swamps around New Orleans with some black magic. The fox and the panther have a happy ending, but it is a riveting read on the path leading to their falling in love.

Maybe it's because I'm ADHD, but I never get bored

This is the second book in the Amoveo series. Another love story surrounding Samantha's best friend Kerry. Kerry is a model who is known for her germ-phobia which is really just a way for her to avoid touching people. Anytime Kerry is touched by someone, she feels great pain and instantly knows way more about the person then she ever wanted to know, including bad things. Samantha is the only person Kerry has ever been able to touch. Kerry always wondered why the only thing she saw when Samantha ...more

The Amoveo are shapeshifters, divided into various clans, with the ability to use other paranormal skills. For years, it was believed that they could only mate with others of their kind. But a recent discovery of hybrids, half-human/half-Amoveo, has lead to war—Purists (Amoveos who do not want the pureblood line diluted) against the hybrids and their mates.

I didn't realize that it was #2 but with this book, I wasn't lost and I could connect with the characters easily. I think that has mostly to do with each book presenting a couple within the Amoveo legend. However, I do want to read the first so I'm introduced properly with everyone.

This book is Dante and Kerry's story. Kerry has a gift or as she sees it a curse. She has only been able to get close to a couple of people her entire life. Otherwise she is inundated with feelings and images from any

Untouched is the second book in the Amoveo series. I recommend starting this series from the beginning. You could read it without reading Unleashed (book one) but you would miss another great story and you probably wouldn't understand the plot as much as someone who started with book one! This series is a unique take on shifters!

It starts at Malcolm and Samantha's wedding with Kerry doing her best to fit in and not touch anyone. They are worried about her safety because the problems from book on
