Being sent to live with her estranged father offers a clean start and she is eager to take it. Enter Asher Blackwell. Once a ...more
I'm not quite done yet, but let's see...
This girl moves with her dad to this new tiny town. She meets a boy who seems to be intrigued by her immediately. He lives with his siblings, is insanely rich, and is a little mysterious with a reputation to never stick with one girl.
Then when we learn more about him and his powers, we learn that Remy lets him feel again, which is something that he craves--dangerously so--and that him and ...more
So Remy is a Healer. Asher is a Protector. And every time they're near each other it's kinda like this:
But being a Healer is dangerous...for both of them. Gabe, Asher's brother, tries to warn them - acting like a total jerk in the process. You can just imagine his face every time Asher disregards his advice:
Remy swears that she sees her evil (twisted, sadistic, creepy and ...more
Color me awesome!!! Touched completely blew me away and totally exceeded my expectations!!
Remy comes from an abused home, taken away from her father by her mother when she was born she has lived with her mother and step-father and endured his abuse alongside her mother for many years. But Remy is no normal girl, for she has the ability to heal others and herself, the catch, any injury she heals she absorbs herself and then must use her own energy to heal it. If thats not ...more
Yeah. That's what this is. No doubt about it.
This was.. An interesting, pathetic attempt at copying Twilight. First, the characters:
Remy:First thing I thought of when I heard this name: Renesme. Don't you think so? Remy. Renesme. MMm-hmm. That's what I thought. Next, Jackson tries to make her such a "strong" character. She's always like I'm SO brave. No. You're not. Trust me, she is weak. Heck, she's weaker than Bella. Ugh. She makes me sick. I mean, she's getting
You might think this book is about romance--again, yes, technically, that's in there. And it's a gorgeous romance between Remy and Asher, two lonely young ...more
Remy goes to live with her dad after her abusive stepfather goes too far, and hospitalizes her, which usually, wouldn't be a big deal for her, because she has this uncanny ability to heal people and herself, with just a ...more
The best part about this book is the plot. I loved that it started off hard and raw, leading the reader down a painful road. Then it let up, allowing the reader to stand up, brush off our shoulder, and step into a whole new world. The author did an amazing job in creating a great back round history. I love a ...more
When I saw the early summary for this book, the first thing that came to mind was that the girl had the same ability as the protagonist in Touch of Power, a book I had just finished recently back then. Plus the titles are rather similar too. But then I came across this interview and thought it why not? It sounds interesting.
Then the early reviews came in and mentioned the similarities to Twilight but I still read this because I was curious. For the early part of the book it was really ...more
Why has the German edition of TOUCHED been published months in advance of the English edition? I get asked this question often, and I thought I would give you a peek at the happenings. Honestly, it's a simple matter of logistics and publishing schedules. My debut novel (IF I LIE) was slated to release Aug 2012 with TOUCHED out three months later in the US. Then TOUCHED sold to a German publisher who had room in their schedule to release the trilogy much, much sooner. And since they ...more
But many compare touched with twilight and I have to agree there's similarities but it's so different at the same time
The biggest difference it that Remy is a warrior, not damsel in distress! she can take care of herself, I loved Remy and I really wish I have half her strength
Don't get me wrong I'm twilight fan and I see nothing wrong in being damsel in distress every once ...more

17-year-old Remy has a special gift she can heal people with just a touch, and absorb their injury into herself. When Remy and her mother both end up in hospital following a beating from Remys step-father, Remy goes to live with her father instead, and meets bad-boy Asher, who seems to like her.
Why is Remy able to heal? What secret is Asher hiding? And who else knows Remys secret?
This was a really good story, even if it was a bit cliché at times.
I liked Remy ...more

Today, I find myself with nothing to read (on hand). With my phone MIA and unreplaced (I know, I know, however will I live?) I have no NetGalley, no iBooks, and nothing to read. So guess what I picked up? Dickens. Man in talented, can really string together sentances, but though A Tale of Two Cities was a brilliant read, not much for a rainy day. God bless my bestie for loaning out her Kindle!!
I find myself with Touched, which immediately piqued my interest. (Your welcome for ...more
How can you possibly think Id want you to sacrifice yourself to save me? As if there wasnt enough danger, now I have to worry youll take a bullet for me.
My arms crossed as his anger ignited my own.
As if, you jerk. You can take your own stupid bullet.
This is my second book of Corrine Jackson and I'm really happy to see that I loved it as much as I loved If I Lie; though the two stories couldn't be more different, my enjoyment and the tears I shed certainly prove that ...more
Touched was unputdownable story of a girl who can mend others wounds, making them of her own. I was immediately intrigued by the plot line which is vivid and detailed, ...more
The entire time I read Touched, I kept thinking that this is how a paranormal story should be written. Ive read so many paranormal plot lines (as Im sure you all have, too) and frankly, Ive been a little burned out on the use of all too familiar tropes and clichés in recent releases. But Corrine is a masterful writer and in her capable hands, the story of Remy becomes unbelievably real.
First theres Remys backstory the reason she went to live with ...more
Remy OMalley heals people with touchbut every injury she cures becomes her own. Living in a household with an abusive stepfather, she has healed untold numbers of broken bones, burns,and bruises. And then one night her stepfather goes too far....more

I was willing to put aside how similar it was to Twilight at one point cause I liked Remy but as it went on, Remy just started losing points with me left and right.
I just didn't understand how that whole conflict could be had when Dean is just a human and she ...more
I think the problem might be that I have read some really great books lately, with either intense romance, original story lines or just great plots and this book, sadly had neither.
To be totally honest it all felt like I had read it before or like maybe the author had found a step by step formula to writing Young Adult Paranormal and wasn't ...more
The book actually starts out okay, honestly. I read it and went, okayyy, this girl has some balls. Perhaps this'll be different. Boy, was I wrong.
