Love all of the characters you created.

Throughout this book, I hated Jade as much as Dez did and maybe even more, which is really hard to do because Dez basically wants to kill her.

I can't wait for the next book to come out.

(Spoilers for Touch)
It's no secret that I LOVED Touch by Jus Accardo. How could I not? With a tough yet vulnerable MC like Dez and the super hot and deadly yet clueless Kale, I was immediately hooked! After eagerly anticipating Toxic and after a few release date set backs, I was ecstatic when I received my review copy.

After Dez makes a bargain to save Kale's life in Touch, she is warned that there will be consequences for it. But Dez doesn't care because nothing can be worse than losing Kale, right? Fast forward to the present and Dez discovers that she has lost her immunity to Kale's deadly touch. After being the only person that Kale was able to touch, this definitely puts a strain on their relationship. But that is just the tip of the iceberg. Dez only has a few months left until she turns 18 and the Supremacy program kicks in and her dad has ordered two new powerful and deadly sixes after her. To make things worse, Ginger has brought in a new six to "help" Kale control his powers. Not only does Jade have very valuable power, she is also a man-stealing girl who is after Kale. (Excuse me while I do some breathing exercises to calm me down...OK, I think I'm good)

Jade is one of the most manipulative characters I have read about and I hate her so much with this fiery passion that consumes me and I wish she would die a horrible, slow and painful death. (Yeah, she's that bad!) There were many time when she would frustrate me so bad that I had to put the book down. Although Kale is a deadly assassin and can kill someone hundreds of different ways, being sheltered his whole life has him lacking some serious...common sense. Something Jade is not afraid to take full advantage of.

Ehh. I liked Touch better.

Here's the deal with Toxic:

1) Dez is kind of naive-stupid. I really hate when authors make their characters naive-stupid, because you know what the character is doing wouldn't make sense to any rational being, but the character is acting in such a way because it furthers the ends of the book and/or makes the book long enough. Lately, I'm seeing that more and more lately YA books. Anyway, I found naive/stupid Dez really annoying, and it's just so hard to get into a book when you don't like the title character. And I did like her in Touch.

2) Opposite to the first reviewer, I kind of feel that much didn't happen in this book. Dez gets sick. That's pretty much the sum up of the whole book. The entire book could have been condensed by half, without really losing anything.

On the plus side:
1) Kale is still wonderful.
2) The last quarter of the book does get more interesting.

However, overall, the book kind of felt like merely an informational bridge between the 1st book and what I assume will be the 3rd (and final?) book where all the real action will happen.

Enjoyed this new installment of Dez & Kale! But oh did Jade rub me the wrong way!!! I loved it, I hardly put it down and was able to sail through because it kept me wanting to know what would happen with Dez's situation she'd found herself in this time! Definitely a must read!

Jus Accardo doesn't have to worry about the sophomore slump because Toxic, with it's heart pounding intensity, is Touch on an adrenaline rush! Everything is higher in this second book of the Denazen Series, the action, suspense, romantic tension and definitely the stakes. There are surprises, betrayals and moments so heart wrenching, I wanted to cry. Toxic sucks you in immediately and keeps you on the edge of your seat right up to the last sentence.

Dez is still fierce and hasn't lost any of her rebelliousness but we do get to see her vulnerability especially when Jade shows up. (We are not fans of Jade's but we'll get to her in a minute.) When Dez and Kale's relationship is put to the ultimate test, she still puts his feelings ahead of her own, regardless of the personal cost. Normally, Dez goes looking for trouble but in Toxic, trouble finds her at every turn. *hugs her*

Kale is still a smouldering force of hotsauce to be reckoned with and I have to say, he's one of the more unique book boys with his mix of deadly and innocence. I love his honest take on every situation and his dry sense of humor cracks me up! Kale faces new challenges in Toxic and his true feelings for Dez are just one of the things he will have to contend with, Alex is another. My favorite quote is a Kale quote and takes place during a particularly stressful encounter involving Alex.

"If you continue to push me, Alex, I'm going to touch you. I've counted to three hundred. Twice." ~ Kale *high fives him* (with gloves on, of course.)

Jade is the new girl in town and I don't trust her as far as I can throw her. She's definitely up to something and her beauty and ruthlessness make for a dangerous combination.

So I've been anxiously waiting to read Toxic ever since I finished Touch, because Hello!? Have you ever read this book? If you haven't read this series then I strongly STRONGLY suggest that you PICK THIS UP RIGHT NOW!!!! That's right, bolded, underlined,and four exclamation points. The Touch series was the second series I have ever read that had to do with "Death Touches". The first one being Shatter Me, which was also a pretty good book, but not even semi close to Touch on my awesome meter. So as you can see, the Death touch concept isn't one that's been exhausted yet, but I'm willing to bet that in the future it'll be incorporated into alot more books due to the success in the ones that are out right now. Anyways, when I looked up the release date for Toxic, it said October 16, so I'm like ok I can survive that long (barely). When October 16 rolls around and I go buy the book, it just so happens that the release date was wrong and it was actually released on September 11! Gahhh I'm so upset! I could've gotten my dose of the hot sexiness known as Kale a whole month ago!

Well that about concludes my rant, onto the actual story. The summary on the back of Toxic, gives away alot of information. To be honest, after I finished the novel, I really wished that I hadn't read the summary. Everyone has different opinions though. Some people enjoy knowing as much about the book as possible before buying, and others enjoy just skipping over reviews and reading books with no expectations. If you agree with the latter, then heed my advice and DO NOT READ THE SUMMARY! If I hadn't read the summary, I probably would've enjoyed it even more than I originally did. Unfortunately, since I did read it, I felt like I knew what and when something was going to happen.
