Shortly after her arrival she meets an enigmatic boy named Asher that seems to have even more secrets than herself. Asher and Remy feel a strong attraction to each other and when they can no longer deny its pull they ind themselves in danger, not only from others if they found out but also from each other.
Wow, Touched is my favorite book from the past year hands down. I love the whole concept of healers and protectors and think Corrine did an amazing job showing us her unique and satisfying take on it. The chemistry between Remy and Asher is so entertaining and I found myself smiling at little things Asher would do to get her attention. After all of the abuse that Remy has been through I really loved the connections she made once she moved in with her dad. Remy is such a perfect blend of vulnerability and strength, I don't think there could have been a more perfect main character for this story. I really felt connected to her and her struggles. Asher is every girls dream, the misunderstood bad boy with a good heart, that would do anything for the one he loves ( insert swoon here ). I can't think of a single thing I would change. The pace was perfect and the characters and world portrayed was believable and enthralling. I sure hope there is a sequel to Touched, because I want more of this fantastic story!
