Stoni Alexander's Touch Series continues with The Loving Touch. Here we have the story of Jagger and Taylor and their fun and passionate story where mistaken identities with a little kinky fun lead them both down a path they never saw coming.

I thought this story was fantastic. I enjoyed Jagger and Taylor immensely as I felt they had spirited banter, a fiery connection and were such great complements to one another. When event planner Taylor Hathaway is forced into an impromptu spotlight, she dec
This was just gross - I pretty much hated it only a couple of pages in. The first two male characters we meet are DudeBros. I mean, there's a character named (and I wish I was joking here) Maverick Hott. When a female server asks him if he wants anything else he's all like, "How about a blow..." before the hero interrupts him. This is the hero's BFF. Yeah, no. The "hero?" Some hotshot hotel mogul. A year ago his image took a hit when he woke up naked next to two female hotel guests (one of them ...more

When an event being hosted by a charity that Taylor Hathaway volunteers for is without its emcee, Taylor's forced into the spotlight to auction off dates with bachelors and bachelorettes. She's supremely shy and insecure, so it's a big deal for her to be in front of an audience. Summoning a bold alter ego, Raven, is necessary for her to get through the night. It's at this event Jagger Loving (friend of Colton Mitus from The Mitus Touch and Crockett Wilde from The Wilde Touch) spies the beaut ...more

Shorter, But Still Hot And Sweet

This third book of the Touch Series is more novella than novel, yet it is still a complete story with well developed characters and storyline. In order to accommodate the shortened length, there are simply less characters and complications portrayed, which allows the author to do justice to those that exist.

Jagger Loving, coming from an upbringing of homelessness and drug addiction, is in the process of developing a dynasty of 5-star hotels in exotic locales. In a

OMG the inimitable Stoni Alexander has done it again in her 3rd book of The Touch Series! Although a shorter read, nevertheless it was still an amazing hot, steamy intriguing read! Stoni never disappoints with her well thought out storylines and wonderful characters written with such depth to them.

A couples-only resort with a lot of saucy action! Am I blushing? Yes.

Taylor Hathaway is shy, sweet and totally perfect. I want her to be my friend, and no, not just because she has direct access to the dreamiest empire of men. 😏 (Maybe a little. I’m still chanting, “Colton, Colton, Colton,” from my last Stoni Alexander read.)

Taylor channels her inner fiend and has a naughty night in heaven with the devilishly handsome Jagger. Well, she calls herself Raven at the time, a pseudonym for her wild in

This is a erotic contemporary romance. This is the third book in The Loving Touch Series, but could be read as a stand alone. I have not read the previous books and I was not lost in the story. This book is for adults only due to the sexual content, yes, hot, steamy, well... you have been warned. Jagger has made some decisions about his life and well he was in for a surprise when he meets Taylor. She turns his world upside down.

Ever since Stoni debut her first book, I have become a fast fan. Her characters are unique and the world she brings you in her stories, well lets say you never want to leave. That is why i was stoked that The Loving Touch was written! This is book three of The Touch Series, but it can be read as a standalone too. I would suggest to read all the books though. It will bring you the back story of all the characters.

Jagger has the swagger and can back it up! <- See what I did there. Yeah Jagger kin

Love-filled fate and destiny

The Loving Touch by Stoni Alexander is a wonderfully written book that truly showcases the couple of this book, Jagger and Taylor. There is nothing about their story I didn’t love. Jagger and Taylor are not perfect, but perfect together and for each other. Jagger is strong and resolute, knows what he wants and goes after it once fate makes it possible. Taylor is adorable, trying to overcome her shyness and fear of new experiences, she takes advantage of fate’s opport

Jagger and Taylor’s romance starts out a little unconventional in this one. Neither were looking for love, in fact a one night stand with no strings attached was the plan. Until they got thrown together by Colton Mitus unbeknownst to any of them that these two had already met. And so the fireworks begin. This one takes place in Malibu with such excitements as nude beaches, sex theater, and of course, it isn’t California without, an

Stoni Alexander’s amazing Touch series continues with the third (and I hope not final) book in the series, The Loving Touch. We’ve seen some truly hot and steamy alpha males in this series so far and Jagger Loving is no exception. He’s the CEO of Loving resorts and after some time out of the States, he’s back. He’s also very much aware of the press, thanks to an incident a year ago. Now he’s cleaned up his image.

Great well written story, with great characters, and few twists, but a great romance.
I really appreciated the way Jagger helps Taylor to accept her body and to reconstruct her self-esteem. In the same time, when he helps her, he helps him to turn the page of his past.
When her friend is drunk, Taylor has to present a charity auction. She changes her name and learn, at the end, that she’s auctionned too. Jagger Loving won a date with her. They’re immediately attracted but she knows he’s not here f

I received a copy from Hidden Gems; this is my honest review.
-Such a great book!
-Jagger and Taylor make such a lovely couple. They want what's best for the other not themselves and they believe in the other. That says a lot.
-Instead of downloading tons of drama, the author decided to "fix the problem" right away with simple questions even though Jagger was mad and Taylor wasn't sure of herself. Truth is always better.
-It's categorized "erotica" but I would put it under "sexy billionaire romance"

Stoni Alexander is a new author for me, but based on her The Loving Touch (Book Three of The Touch Series), I’m promising myself that we will become well acquainted. This novel truly is, quite simply, wonderful. This tale had just what I wanted and was well written and with a great plot that had a truly “genuine” feel to it. Taylor Hathaway and Jagger Loving (a great name), the leads here, are perfectly crafted and her supporting cast is also superb. As the book’s blurb notes, everything “hinges ...more

Be bold! Taylor hasn't been bold in such a long time and with her boss/friend telling her to make bold choices, she does. She wants one night. One night to be Raven, she definitely gets that and Jagger gets her...she does get the Loving Touch *wink* and thought one night was all she was going to get.

Jagger can't believe his luck when his prize bolts the next morning. He wants more but it's not in the cards right now. Or is it? I could feel their shock with coming face to face again.

I have only read one other book by Stoni Alexander, but I was very impressed with it, so I gave this one a try, and it was great!

It was a shorter read, only taking me a few hours to read, collectively. The sex was on fire, out of this world hot. The relationship between Jagger and Taylor is very realistic, and I feel that a lot of people will relate to Taylor and how she sees herself.

The only thing that I have to nitpick about is that sometimes the love between the two just seemed to be too 'gu

Shy Taylor Hathaway was about to have a coronary! The speaker for her fundraiser was drunk and completely incapable of emceeing the event. With no other choices available, she had to step up and fill in for him. Taylor was afraid, so she called up her new alter ego, Raven to do the job...the mask helped!

That’s when he first saw her and his world tilted...he had to have her. The handsome man in the back of the room captivated her. Imagine her surprise when a turn of events provided an opportunity

Whew! This was a good, fast read for me. I really enjoyed it! I enjoyed Taylor and Jagger's meet cute. And I loved how he encouraged her to come out of her shell. Taylor felt like Jagger was so far out of her league, but he enjoyed her company and getting to know her. He was drawn to her like no one before and the chemistry between them was HOTT!

I voluntarily read an arc of this book for a fair and honest review. While I have not read The Mitus Touch, I did read The Wilde Touch and thoroughly enjoyed it. I now feel I have to read The Mitus Touch because I adored The Loving Touch. This author’s male leads are larger than life alphas and her heroines are true women. Jagger Loving ticked all the boxes for me. I love a broody man. I wish this story was longer because I wasn’t ready for it to end. It is a great, sit on the beach, draw a warm ...more

This is so sweet and romantic. Taylor has some self-image issues that cause her to be more introverted than she’d like. After taking on an alternate name for an auction, she meets the man of her dreams, but believes it to be a one night stand and uses it to partially bolster her confidence. When Jagger first sees her, he’s in, head over heels and don’t know what to do about it. When she disappears, he’s assuming she’s like the rest, but after getting to know her and her insecurities, h ...more

This was a very fast read. I would have loved for it to have more to it but none the less it was a great story. This is part of a series, The third book in The Loving Touch trilogy but could be read as a stand-alone.

Jagger and Taylor are so cute together. Taylor is definitely the shy girl next door. I loved her character so much because I felt like I could relate in some ways. Although I'm still waiting for my hot, sexy CEO to show up at my door. I'm rating The Loving Touch 4.5

This is part of the Touch Series and features Jagger and Taylor. Taylor's a shy event planner who throws caution to the wind and becomes 'Raven' for the night. She allows herself to be auctioned off to Hotel magnate Jagger. This is a short novella but it really has the goods packed in. The characters are opposites but their chemistry is steaming.

Taylor was a great character who was well developed as an event planner and a shy person she really grew through this book. Jagger was also likeable and well developed and I adored him. This book had lots of steam and great flow with secondary characters I liked and disliked as the story unfolded. This book was a great read from beginning till end. Lots of sexy time and a little bit of kink made this a hot and steamy story with plot included. Loved it!
