About the book:
From the outside, Kerry Smithson appears to have it all — beauty, brains, money, and fame. However, Kerry harbors a crippling secret. One touch will tell her your deepest secrets and cause her mind-numbing pain. Adept at avoiding even the lightest of touches, isolation and loneliness has become her way of life. However, her world is turned upside down from the moment she encounters the disarmingly handsome Dante Coltari. Little does she know that Dante harbors a secret of his own. One that would change the course of their lives and intertwine their fates, forever.
What G & U are talking about:
Untouched was a well-woven and nicely paced story. Gikany and Una enjoyed this second novel in the Amoveo Legacy. It has some humor and very touching moments. The action and mystery were a pleasant addition to the romance and we are already discussing whose story is next.
Dante and Kerry make a wonderful couple. They are able to laugh at not only themselves but also each other. There is only one moment that we found frustrating: Dante goes through the mating ceremony without telling Kerry. Once complete, she asks him what he said…and she finds out they are mated. This really bothered us. It does, however, go with her snarky comments throughout the story that refer to Dante as a Neanderthal. We just felt that Kerry should have been a little more upset, or angry about his actions.
We enjoyed seeing Malcom and Sam again and enjoyed their part in this story. Although we are not sure of the next pairing, we hope to see more of Malcom, Sam, Kerry and Dante in the next book. We would love to see Kerry meet Dante’s family. We would have enjoyed seeing it here, but can understand that it wouldn’t have been able to be inserted seamlessly.
While looking back at the overall story arc, we thought it may have dragged a little, but we still enjoyed the story. The twist of the “big bad” and the involvement of some of the new characters were interesting. The mythology is still very fascinating and enjoyable. Although the ending is a bit vague and wide open, we do look forward to the next novel in this Amoveo series.
