★★★★★! First Touch, book 1 of 2. 6-star hero cannot be swayed or seduced instead he turns the table & fucks her (world) mind senseless!
“Those men, my peers, they were a sea of beautiful— calm and serene. Reeve was the ocean, dark and commanding and turbulent. They moved in gentle waves. Reeve stood still and set the world crashing around him.”

I need a cigarette. or twelve. I had to keep picking this up and putting this down and walking away and taking deep breaths because this was affecting me to a point that made me feel wildly uncomfortable and completely exposed in the way that only phenomenal writing can.
How do you review perfection? I should just say “This book is the best book ever. Go buy it NOW.” Would that be sufficient? Because other than that, I don’t know if I have the right words. First Touch belongs on the big screen. Everything about this book – the intrigue, the darkness, the absolutely filthy sex scenes – it’s all just… so consuming. It overwhelmed each and every one of my senses in the best possible way. I can ...more
Hmm. I am pretty sure my review of this book is going to make zero sense. So let me just get this out of the way: READ THIS BOOK.
Emily Wayborn is searching for answers. When a mysterious call is received from an old friend, she knows she’s in trouble. But finding her is proving to be much more difficult than she thought. One of the few things she knows is that her last lover was billionaire Reeve Sallis. Now getting close to the man is a whole new issue.
Seducing and catching the eye of Reeve i ...more

I am still processing. And recovering. There was just something about this book. It is hard to describe without spoilers, and one of the main joys of this book is the suspense, the wondering, the not-knowing what happened. And, the brilliance is that, even when you don't know if you should trust either character, you still WANT to. I think that is what makes this work so well. You want to trust them, you like them.
Emily and Reeve. They are both so flawed, they bot ...more
Holy shit. Oh my God. Jesus! First Touch BLEW. ME. AWAY. Laurelin’s writing gripped my heart, my mind, my body and my soul from start to finish. Along the way I’m pretty damn sure I felt every emotion humanly possible. AND THEN SOME! That’s how spectacular this author is!
Reeve Sallis is a fucking asshole!!! He might actually be one of the biggest assholes I’ve ever met. I’m dead serious. BUT...I love every damn inch of him! He is dangerous and intimidating. A Gree ...more
A masterpiece of epic proportions! My stomach is in knots, my pulse in pounding, my mind is spinning, and yet, I want to turn to page one and start over and experience Paige's brilliance once again! Every word left me breathless. Every chapter made me speechless. Every page turned was another step into oblivion. I didn't want to come back from this. I didn't want it to end. I wanted to this epic journey to continue. FIRST TOUCH was riddled with mystery, intrigue, and so much sexiness. Believ ...more
Dayum!! What a sexy, intriguing read this book turned out to be. “First Touch” has to be one of the most captivating erotic romance I have read in a while…or ever. But let me tell you, it was more than that – it was also a suspenseful read that honestly kept me at the edge of my seat from start to finish, it was deliciously sexy which I loved with just a little bit if a mystery vibe to it that I found very addictive. Needless to say I couldn’t put it down!
Emily Wayborn is not the same ...more
Since my jaw is still somewhere around my feet, I'm not sure I can even put my feelings into words, but I'm going to try. That being said, I would strongly suggest simply buying the book rather than reading this review, it is that good.
The book begins by Emily trying to find her best friend, who was last seen with the enigmatic and possibly dangerous Reeve Sallis. Will she be able to find her friend and ...more

If you dislike dark erotica, then, please, pass. First Touch has aspects of rape, F/M/F menage, underage sex, oblique references to infidelity, narcissistic characters with mob connections and some situations likely to have you screaming at your kindle. Don't say I didn't warn you. You're welcome.
Should you choose to read this, you won't regret it. It's erotica with a mad dash of suspense.
And oh, ensure you have the secon
"do you still have that blue raincoat?"
Seems innocent enough, but for Emily Wayborn that message has an important meaning. During her formative years, Emily and her best friend, Amber, decided on one word, a safe word, a cry for help, 'blue raincoat'.Unfortunately, Emily receives the message months too late, and Amber seems to have vanished.
Emily has lived a 'colorful' life. Together with Amber, she spent her teens and early twenties gallivanting around the world, jumping for one r ...more
...I can't get you out of my mind. You contaminate my thoughts. I keep remembering your body under my hands as I touched you. The parts of you I didn't touch. The sounds you made. The look in your eyes. You haunt me, Emily.
It's been a long time that I read a book that effected me on such a visceral level. I had honest to god tingles while reading this. My heart was beating out of my chest, my head was spinning, and I was completely and utterly incapable of putting it down for ...more
Emily is spunky, strong willed and savvy. She knows how to hold her own and is aware of her personal demons. That makes for one hell of a heroine. Out to save her long lost best friend from unknown danger, Emily puts herself back in a position she swore sh ...more

My goodness, what a delectably wicked book this was, and I loved every minute of it! It feels strange to say, but it was like this book was written specifically for me. Nothing gets my blood pumping more than a good mystery coupled with erotic BDSM, and combined with the author’s addictive, velvety writing I was completely hooked. I only wish I read this book slower to savor each word!
At first I wasn’t really sure why I loved the book so much, except that I had finished it in one sitti ...more

“I was here because this was who I was—a strong, independent woman with distinct wants and needs that were only met when I submitted to a man.”

He was always rough. Always raw. He fucked me however he wanted— fucked my tits, my mouth, my cunt. He’d tell me when he wanted my ass in the future, he’d take that too. And then sometimes, rarely, in the middle of the night, he’d be sweet. Pulling me into his lap, kissing me, caressing me. Letting me fly but anchoring me with his eyes. Speaking words he’d never dare say in the light of day. Words that I’d never dare say in return ...more
If you're looking to have your 20/20 vision splattered with blood, spit, and semen, then take this book and have your way with it.
If not, run.
Seriously. I am compelled to throw in some repulsive and graphic gifs in my review just for good measure.
First Touch is going to haunt me at night. Maybe even you. I won't give away anything specific in my review; not a single thing. All I want to do is forget this book and I ever happened.
I wasn't prepared for how dark and sexua ...more

PHENOMENAL. This one word perfectly captures the beauty of this exquisitely written, chilling, erotic, thrilling, and brilliant story. Reeve Sallis and Emily Wayborne shine together. Laurelin Paige completely outdid herself with gorgeous writing and a plot so intricately twisted creating a mysterious web of trust and deceit, cat and mouse. I was consum ...more
