Touch Me is the story of Char and Riley.

Char has a great job, awesome parents, a sister who drives her crazy- but she loves dearly, and a best friend named Derrick. She’s got it all. Except a man. The last one she had broke her trust and treated her poorly. She would rather be single than go through that again.

Riley just moved to Boston because of some family/job issues. Luckily, he finds an ad on Craigs list to room with a guy named Derrick that seems pretty cool. Derrick and

Clearly I am in the minority given all the 4 and 5 star reviews.

I found the characters to be immature and two-dimentional.

I found the overall writing lacked a lot of depth.

That's really as simple as I can say it.

***Copy kindly provided by author in exchange for an honest review***

After reading about many alpha male/dominating/hard-core heroes, my mind was just aching for a sweet romance, and this book was definitely that and more! For a debut novel, T.H. Snyder has done a beautiful job of introducing two characters, both deeply hurt from haunting memories of their past, who are just destined to meet and fall in love with each other.

Char is absolutely amazing. Despite her charming personality and

Of course I have to give this book a SMASHING 5 STARS because it is my baby.

I have read hundreds of books over the past few years and I wanted to write a series that included everything I enjoy in a book.

Touch Me tells a dual POV story of chance meetings, DRAMA, a quick paced love, and HOT n STEAMY scenes.

*4.5 STARS*

Such a sweet and lovely storyline.
The main two characters, Char and Riley are two very compatible characters. Their love for each other was very evident right from their explosive start.
I need to show my appreciation to the author T.H Snyder for not making the male lead a man-whore billionaire who's a know it all control freak. Riley was a genuinely nice bloke and sort a genuinely nice woman for his own HEA.
Char had a moment where she had some insecurities about herself, but

I received an ARC from the author for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this story of Char and Riley. It’s a nice love story that was an easy light read that sometimes you need in all the books we read that are dark and twisted. There is nothing wrong with having a good old fashioned love story to make you believe in love. The book is a duel POV with each chapter being in both Char and Riley POV. The author really does a great job keeping the POV in line and the story flowing back and forth

I would first like to give thanks to T.H Snyder for making me a part of her ARC team for an honest review, and second congrats on your debut novel. I just fell in love with it and the characters in this book. You can just relate to them in so many different ways, from a broken heart from a true love, to a death in a family, to family drama.
I fell in love with the two main characters Char and Riley right away. Char is not looking for anyone to come into her life. She is still trying to mend a

I loved this book and highly recommend it.

When you read a book and fall in love or hate with characters you know that the author did a good job connecting with you. This was a book that I wanted to keep reading more of.

Since Touch me is written in both Char and Riley's perspective you have a really good understanding of their relationship. I think this helped make me fall in love with these two.
There are supporting characters in this book and they are very well developed.
Great job TH Snyder. I

A fantastic love story!

This is a story of two people who each came from a different situation. Through heartbreak and family devastation Char and Riley cross each other's paths in more ways than one.

Riley has worked hard to get everything ripped away from him. When he decides to move away and get a fresh start he runs into a beautiful Char. So they may not start off all sweet and charming but they definitely have a connection!

Char focuses on her work and dealing with her sister's boyfriend. She

I was fortunate to be a beta-reader of an ARC of this book and this is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! The story is sooo good! I started reading it and could not put it down until I finished it! I lost myself in the story so much that I had to go back and re-read to check for edits. I loved it just as much the second time through! It is one of those romance stories that grabs you and keeps you reading! The characters are well developed, the story line is captivating, and for all of you who hate ...more

This was an absolute romantic blast to read. Char is the type of female lead character that you can't help but fall in love with. And Riley, well Riley just be fine as hell, lol. With the scars of a broken heart keeping her guard up is like second nature to Char. And with her BFF being her selfish ass sisters 'waiting in the wings boyfriend' Derrick she is not without a male influence in her life. So when Riley comes flying into her life like a bat out of hell calling her crazy mart bitch she is ...more

Touch Me is T.H. Synder's debut novel. I really enjoyed the story and fell in love with the characters. This is a steamy 4 star read!

When T.H. Snyder approached me to host the Blog Tour for her debut novel Touch Me, she said it was a Young Adult romance. The cover was innocent and I thought it was the story of a high school couple in love. Sweet -Yes; Couple in Love – Yes; Innocent – Heck No! This book has some super STEAMY scenes! Needless to say, it is not Young Adult as I was pleasantly surprised

Touch Me is the very sweet love story of two “twenty-somethings”, Char and Riley, who dislike each

I really enjoyed this story! It was a very nice read and I loved the characters.

Char is just coming out of a serious relationship that went bad. She builds a few walls and has a very hard time trusting anyone. Char pretty much works all the time so she doesn't have to deal with finding love again. I really loved Char and wanted her to find love so badly! I found myself having a few tears for her along the way.

I started reading this on Sept 23 and kept putting it aside in favor of something I found more interesting. Honestly, I skimmed the last half just because I was so bored and I hate to leave a book unfinished.

The dialogue was soooooo awkward! No one talks like that. Ever. Everything just seemed so stilted and it didn't flow at all. The characters acted like a couple of high school students instead of adults with real jobs.

A prime example of what didn't work. Char sees her ex-BF Marc (who slept

I was given the opportunity to read this book before it was released by the author herself. Reading the prologue was intriguing for me to read more...

The story was written on both Char and Riley's POV. It was well written and the characters were developed very well that any reader can relate to.

Char had a past relationship making her broken and insecure. Trusting became a problem to her that even if she felt the immediate connection with Riley, she denied it and took off. Meanwhile, Riley has

It was a sweet story about Charlotte (AKA Char) and Riley.
Char is a independent woman who is always left cleaning up after her older sister Chloe. (Reminds me of my sister)and meets Riley rather comically in a store where they call each other a few choice words. Hysterical! Not wanting to see the asshole again she gets blindsided when she figures out he has moved into her best friend's house ( sis Boyfriend) Char has major trust issues when it comes to men and even friends after a past

This wasn't working for me at all.
There was some supposed insta love between the main characters that we only knew about because every time they touched one another they 'felt something'. Eh? The thing that tipped me over? She asks him to stay over, he says yes but then immediately changes her mind. Not clear why other than to pad out the story. She spins into major anxiety mode. He's hurt beyond belief - huh? Really? I just wasn't feeling their attraction in the first place so the

I truly enjoyed reading Touch Me. T. H. developed her characters and storyline to make you want to find out what the future holds for them. There are strong family bonds and friendship bonds from the very beginning and new ones that form. I am really enjoying Riley and Char with the ups and downs that they have gone through in their lives the determination to continue on. Can't wait for the second book in series to be released Touched by You.

This book had me glued to it after the very first chapter. I loved the relationship Char has with her family. Not to mention Derrick, he is very much the big brother she never had. Riley walked into Char's life at just the right time for them both.I loved how Riley ran into Char before they were properly introduced. I would love for this book to continued on with their relationship, but I am hoping we get a that in the next book in this series.

I liked the characters and the dual point of view. Char and riley are perfect, maybe too perfect that there really was no exciting moments where i felt mixed emotions are was highly anticipating what would happen next. But i guess the characters not being to fucked up or not having so much excess baggage was refreshing.
