My goal with this novella was to explore aspects of male sexuality you don't normally see, and the power of touch in our lives. I also wanted to show the strong bond between a long-term couple whose physical relationship may have changed but whose love for each other didn't.(less)

Big age gap stories generally aren't my thing, at all, but this one was pretty good.

A little flirty. A little sad. A little sweet. A little durty.

Overall, I enjoyed it as the short, erotic read for which it was intended, so 4 stars.

It's stories like this that make me wish I was better at reviewing, sigh.

Everyone needs a little sexy time now and then, but Touch Me is more than just an erotic romance! I was deeply touched, brought to tears at one point and fully enjoyed the sweet & sexy ending of Erik & Jeremy.

It's a powerful story. The characters are endearing, and yes, it is super sexy! + a lot of feelings.

This was not all what I expected. I expected an erotic short about a man giving erotic massages. I was in the mood for that.

But no, this book deals with heavy subjects. It floored me.

description

----Beware, spoilers----

This is told from Erik’s POV. Erik is a 49 year old man, who is not only giving out regular massages during his day job as a masseur, he also gives some special people erotic massages. He gets to know these people on the internet and invites them to his practice. These people don’t p

>: Erik is a massage therapist by day who offers specialized sessions to a few clients afterhours. Erik touches them, helps them, tries to heal if he can. He takes away the experience. We don’t get to know why he does this until part way through the story and by then I was completely hooked on Eric.

I’ll be honest, I started this book with trepidation. I honestly didn’t think I was going to like the subject matter. And then, well, unbelievable. This author managed to make what could have been

Lovely little erotic short from Chris Scully. I've read everything she's written, her writing is an absolute delight and this novella has a real feel good vibe. 4.25 stars from me, would have loved it to have been a little longer, the cover was delicious!!

What's it about?? I hear you cry...well, as with Inseparable and When Adam Kissed Me, you should know that it will be a decent story, and this one revolves around Erik who is a masseuse, and who, despite the dreadfully sad stuff going on in h

Original Post: eARC Review: Touch Me by Chris Scully

This is a remarkable story that totally took me by surprise. I expected erotic romance and I got it. I expected a well written work by Chris Scully, and I got that too. What I did not expect was to get all flustered and waste a whole box of tissues I was sobbing my eyes out! The author owes me back my heart.... **sniffles**

Eric went into erotic massage for a reason and it is not from the usual ones. The longer he went into this, the more he fou

To call this novel an erotica is such a gross understatement. Who would have known you could get a complete story with subtleties and rich characters that you feel for in something so short? Somehow the author managed to get me to care about these characters want them to end up together and showed that sexuality isn't just about getting off, that those involved in the adult industry (in this case, erotic massage) have the ability to truly help people. When it came to scenes of watching the prota ...more

I was lucky enough to do a beta read for the author of this novella and what an enjoyable task that was! I wouldn’t say erotic fiction is my favourite genre but this short is much more than erotic. Erik – the main character – gives healing massages to clients, using his hands to nurture their curiosities or dispel their temporary dips in libido. Weaved into the erotic massages are some deep and thought provoking issues surrounding the human need of that sense called touch. Erik shows us that the ...more

A fantastic, quick and highly enjoyable short story.

At first glance you only see that it's incredibly hot and written beautifully, but after Erik's second session, you get the whole picture: how touch-starved he is, how awfully helpless he feels because of what's happening with his long-time partner, and how much he longs to feel close to someone again. Despite the heavy theme, the drama in this was not overdone at all and it - thankfully - managed to end things on a positive note.

I bought this a LONG time ago and never got around to reading it for some reason. So, I'm swiping through my Kindle carousel looking for something short and porny...see the cover and think, "Voila!" Well, it's porny alright. But OMG my heart, it aches. Such a touching story about love and loss and rediscovery.

Jeremy's first tale was so hot and I like the satisfaction Erik gets out of introducing a guy to the wonders his body is capable of. And Allen's story? Fuck, that's why sex therap

This may be tagged erotic fiction but it was so much more than that. It was emotion and healing and a whole lot of sniffles.

Eric lives in a world that is emotionally difficult. His partner of 30 years is dying of ALS and Eric often doesn't know whether to feel relief that his suffering will be ending soon or the the anchor of grief that often follows him around. As a way to maintain intimacy with his partner, he helps to heal others through erotic massage. Jeremy, a young man who was

Cover: I love how the title jumps out at the reader on the cover, the model looks very relaxed and has a cute smile. It is a nice cover, but the appliances on the little table next to the cover model don’t seem to have anything to do with the story.

Title: Short and attention-grabbing! With touch being so important for the story, it really suits it!

Story: This story has only about 64 Pages, so it is fairly short. I had no idea what to expect, but I really liked what the author wrote in her guest

4.5 star review by Vicki

Oh my…. what an amazing story. This was a short story and will probably be a short review, because I really don’t want to talk about the plot much and give it away. You just have to read it to see what happens.

Erik Morgan is a massage therapist that does a little extra work on the side. Not paid work, he is NOT a prostitute, he does not sell his services. But he takes on one client a month, that he helps sexually. No intercourse occurs, it really is more therapy than sex.

This novella is a delight. I was pulled into Erik's world and found myself breathing along with him.  

It opens very sensually. Massage is a sensual art. And when done with the dedication and compassion that Erik shows to his special clients it becomes a beautiful, erotic and often healing experience. We only get to meet a couple of his special clients, but each one showed a side of Erik that was compelling.  

There is much more to Erik's story than we at first expect. We discover the complex

Erik is a massage therapist who offers certain clients something extra (but he does not penetrate his clients with his dick). Like a client who suffered a stroke and can't get an orgasm with his wife. Why he does this, I will not explain. He's not in it for the money, but has good personnel reasons. One of his clients is Jeremy. A gay virgin who comes to experience gay sex (without the dick penetration). Erik usually only has one session with a client. Jeremy stays in his thoughts.

In a word: Read the thing. Immediately after finishing Until September I went looking for some of the author’s other works; I found a few that looked promising but I chose this one because it wasn’t very long and it was a standalone. I’m not as big a fan of this one as I am Until September, but I still really like it. It’s pretty much porn but it’s also very emotional. At first it seems like it’s just a story about a massage therapist who sometimes provides ‘happy endings’ after hours, but as yo ...more

What a beautiful story of love and loss. Erich is a massage therapist whose partner is ill. Jeremy is a young guy who is trying to come to terms with his sexuality. They meet under unusual circumstances and unlike other clients, Erich feel something different towards Jeremy. They carry on a correspondence of sorts. We get to see what else is happening in Erich's life and know that he will experience heartbreaking loss. I don't want to spoil the plot this is just a really well written story that ...more

Chris Scully did a beautiful job writing this short story. The main character, Erik Morgan, who does erotic massages on special clients, was so believable, you felt like you were right there with him enjoying what he did. This story was erotic, touching, very moving, and yet sad at the same time. When Jeremy comes along for a massage, Erik's life was touched with this young man. Erik's partner was dying and I really believe if Jeremy hadn't touched his heart their lives would have been so much d ...more

Beautiful story about what we would do for love

I loved this story about Erik and the erotic massages he gives to a select clientele, just once and for no payment. Jeremy comes in to discover his body and his sexuality. Jeremy is a young man, a couple of months short of 23. While Erik is an older man, he does the erotic massages for the man he loves, George. This is a beautiful story of endings and beginnings. I cared very much for Erik who loved deeply the men in his life. You will not ever regr

One of the most beautiful books i've read. It was so stunningly tender and loving and just incredibly touching. I loved every word of it. It was poetic in its fluidity and grace. My favorite book by Chris Scully was Inseparable till now (And I LOVED Inseparable). This is by far her best book yet. Just read it!

I was a little hesitant reading this. I had some problems with this. It did feel a little creepy. It's a huge age difference (it's even more than 10). But I liked that Erik let Jeremy initiate most of it, it helped the creepy factor. I just thought it was a little weird how easily he came out after his lover's death. Especially after the 26 years they had together. Nonetheless, it was a nice story.

I agree this was a pretty good, short, erotic read. Very sexy. There is sadness here and it's profound. The author knows her way around death and dying. I'm speaking as someone whose been there. She gets it. There is a sweet HEA.

Great new author Chris Scully, recommended by Author Jamie Lake. This was emotional and a path to discovery for both Eric and Jeremy. I don't want to give anything away so I will just let you know that this story is hot and I will look to read more from Chris Scully.

I'm not great with long, detailed comments (in fact, I suck at them) so I'll keep it short. This book is amazing. It deserves an award! (But I have no idea which one, because I don't know what they are.) One of the best stories have read in a while. Thumbs up from me!
