As soon as I read the little tease of A Beautiful Touch at the end of A Beautiful Risk I knew I had to get my hands on the book and I wasn’t disappointed. While this book was all kinds of sweet, smexy and frustrating (in a good way) it also has a good dose of drama and heartache, which I definitely wasn’t expecting, that gave the story a lot of depth and heart.
I loved Sebastian and Iz. Sebastian is sweet, charming and determined and a little sneaky, which I thoroughly approved of and made it easy to fall for him. Iz is sweet and compassionate and definitely knows her own mind. She isn’t afraid to put herself out there and try new things, but she also knows when to draw the line in the sand.
Their journey to their HEA was definitely fraught with a good dose of frustration, but through all of it, it did give them the time to really get to know one another and see just what made them tick. I loved their bantering and how they seemed to just get each other. The smexy, once it happened, was HOT and I loved how they became more to each other than either expected.
This was, overall, a sweet read chock full of characters that were easy to like and root for. The bit of drama in it wasn’t expected, but as I said, did give depth to the story as well as Sebastian and Iz’s characters. I enjoyed the first person POV, and normally don’t have an issue when the entire story is told from one POV, but considering all that went on in the story I do wish that we’d gotten a couple of chapters from Sebastian’s POV. The secondary characters in this one were very well written and I really wished I could have spent more time with all of them ~ especially Sebastian’s family. So, if you are looking for a sweet read with a dash of drama then this one you should check out!
Note: This can definitely be read as a true stand-alone as no characters from A Beautiful Risk make an appearance.

Iz felt the zing of hot chemistry when Sebastian first walked through her massage therapy clinic front door. He was gorgeous, romantic, and a gentleman to boot. I get the professional dilemma she found herself, but not so much how she handled things. She needed to take the advice everyone else logically kept pointing out to her. Honestly, it would have solved their problem. Her constant hand wringing and pushing him away took up most of the story line. At 70%, they still weren’t what I would consider a real couple. Not contacting him immediately when a very shocking and devastating event happened completely dumbfounded me. I thought it would be the wake up call she needed. I was surprised he didn’t take major offense afterwards and write off their non-existent relationship altogether. Instead the opposite happened. This very compassionate, forgiving, understanding man pulled her closer into his world.
Unfortunately, that’s when the writing took a turn that did not work for me. Mechanical, sappy, and just plain off are words that come to mind, which is a shame because before that the writing flowed. At 75%, Iz finally decided to get smexy with Sebastian. He sure was happy about it, naturally, but I just was no longer in the mood, folks. I felt like an uncomfortable spectator when introductions to his family commenced.
So here’s to hoping others love this entire book. I wish this author continued writing success. The first half held my interest as I leisurely strolled along with them. I just found myself rather exhausted, frustrated, then turned off starting around the 70% point. By then it was mostly the writing itself. I find myself wondering now if the problem was a well thought out endgame was missing.
Title: A Beautiful Touch, Series: Love at Lincolnfield (Book 2), Author: Colette Dixon, Pages: 270, stand-alone but part of a series, slow burn, very slow paced, extremely patient good guy hero, instant attraction/love at first sight, not smexy until 75%, hand wringing heroine, writing lost its appeal, lots of massage therapy terminology. Rating: 3 stars
Book 1 - A Beautiful Risk
