Touched by Corrine Jackson

ISBN: 9780758273338
Publisher: Kensington Teen
Pages: 343

Touched is the first book in the Sense Thieves series.

Remy O’Malley heals people with touch - but 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.

Being sent to live with her estranged father offers a clean start and she is eager to take it. Enter Asher Blackwell. Once a Protector of Healers, Asher sacrificed his senses to become immortal. Only by killing a Healer can a Protector recover their human senses. Falling in love is against the rules between these two enemies. Because Remy has the power to make Protectors human again, and when they find out, they’ll be coming for her - if Asher doesn’t kill her first.

I received a copy of Touched by Corrine Jackson for review from Kensington Teen. Although I enjoyed reading Touched, it wasn't what I had initially thought it would be. Unfortunately, quite a few of the elements within Touched seemed similar to other books, so at times it felt as though I was re-reading those other books, rather than reading a totally new one. The Protector & Healer concept was interesting to read at first, but unfortunately I had guessed the ending quite a few pages before. Even though the cover of Touched is quite pretty, it doesn't really seem to be very strongly connected to the story within.

Available at  Amazon.com & Amazon.co.uk.

  1. Touched is honestly nothing like I have ever read before. There is so much suspense, and I just love how Corrine Jackson wrote the story in a way where the suspense builds and builds, killing you until the last second and even then it's never over. I loved the romantic moments in this story, and the family moments, and just all of it. This book will definitely be one of those books I will cherish for a lifetime.
