When Emily Wayborn receives an answerphone message from her former best friend Amber, she knows something is seriously wrong. Emily hasn't spoken to Amber for years, and when Amber uses a safe word in her message that Emily recognises—a word they always used to get out of sticky situations during their wild partying days—she knows Amber needs her help. But when Emily tries to find her, she discovers that Amber is missing. Determined to track her down, Emily follows a chain of clues that lead her to enigmatic billionaire Reeve Sallis. Renowned for his shady dealings and playboy reputation, Emily is convinced that Reeve knows something about Amber's disappearance. To discover the truth, Emily sets out to seduce him. But when she's forced to decide where her loyalty lies, how will Emily choose between saving Amber and saving her heart?


The blurb of this book got me so intrigued that I said yes as soon as the publisher contacted me asking for a review. It's a genre I know well and one I always end up enjoying, so when I started the read I was confident enough about the kind of story I was getting into and yet, it proved to have something different to offer...

Everything starts quite dark, and then it gets darker until the point that you can't understand if it's Emily the one having a problem or you. The more you read, the more you find that there's a lot to process, and not just for the characters. Sometimes the reader may find a few events disturbing, but they are all part of a story that is waiting for you to put the pieces together and have the whole picture revealed. Now, can you? Challenging and seductive from beginning to end, "First Touch" surprised me and so did the mysterious Reeve...

Sinful, powerful and compelling. I loved it in ways I wouldn't have imagined. And, let's face it, the cliffhanger at the end totally made me beg for the next instalment!
