Editorial Reviews

Review

"Visceral, enticing, shining with white lies and dark truths, seductive twists and turns, and a love that takes your breath away."” –Katy Evans, New York Times bestselling author


Praise for First Touch


"The dynamic between Reeve and Emily is interesting because their connection is so intimate despite the circumstances of their arrangement. It’s a game of cat-and-mouse that’s carnal, erotic and emotionally raw. Be prepared for a cliffhanger that will leave you desperate for more." --RT Book Reviews


"In this raw duology opener...Paige is unflinching in her depiction of a complicated relationship, and the results are explosive." --Kirkus Reviews


“Gritty, edgy, dark and compelling, First Touch pulls no punches and just might leave you reeling” – Megan Hart, New York Times bestselling author


“Laurelin Paige writes an addictive mix of emotion and sexy that draws the reader in and doesn't let go until long after the last page is read.” –K. Bromberg, New York Times bestselling author

About the Author

Laurelin Paige is the NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of the Fixed Trilogy. She's a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there's kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters.

Here's the thing about Laurelin Paige: she is a fluid, evocative, provocative, and gifted storyteller. Her books are character-driven, which is not an easy way to write because she has to make certain that her characters are consistent, that their behavior serves the narrative, and that the narrative serves them.

In Last Kiss, she reinforces herself as an exemplary writer.

A warning: this review will have spoilers relating to First Touch, so if you have not read the precursor to Last Kiss, you might want to do that before you read any reviews for this book.

Emily finally has what she wants: love with Reeve Sallis. They are committed to each other, and she is, much to her surprise and even slight discomfort, happy. That feeling has eluded her for most of her life, and now she has it. Reeve gives her what she wants (he commands her submission) and what she needs (security and validation). As Last Kiss opens, though, this new love and commitment are in perilous condition: Amber has returned.

Yes, Amber. The woman Reeve loved before he fell for Emily. The woman whose friendship with Emily led the latter to Reeve. The woman Emily and Reeve and basically everyone else assumed was dead. She's here, in Reeve's ranch home, and very much alive, if not a bit battered and bruised.

We know this about Amber: she is manipulative and a wee tad unstable. But she was there for Emily when Emily needed a friend, and she bolstered Emily when no one else would.

Yet.

You kind of want her to be dead.

Your first fear, one you share with Emily, is that Amber's arrival spells doom for Emily and Reeve. After all, Emily is keeping a few secrets from her lover, secrets she is terrified will break them up permanently.

I am sorry I read this, and that I read it so fast...so now I'm freakin''miserable! That this gripping exhilarating tale is over, the end of a beautiful story and I miss it so much already. I miss Reeve and Emily terribly, especially Reeve. He's inside my mind, I can see him, smell his scent. This beautiful, hot male Alpha that can turn any hot blooded woman to mush. One look at you and you'd turn to a puddle of goo. Being with Reeve would awaken that sexual feeling inside you and make you feel alive. It'll make you giddy with desire and all you want is more. He's the most romantic book hero ever.

This is one incredible tale, one I didn't want to end and couldn't put down until I finished. It was simply breathtakingly amazing. Days already passed and I'm still thinking about it and have yet to get over. A very sensual and sexy read as only Ms. Paige can write, she leaves me breathless after reading any of her books. This will stay with me for a very long time. There are some scenes on the flashbacks that was done so beautifully and effectively, when both Emily and Amber were very young. Some maybe disturbing but it is all worth it. Some things Emily have done and all the heartbreaking awful things she's gone through, she fought back to get her where she's at and gave it as good as she's got. They were just so incredible you can't help admire her. I have never before have wanted a character as much as I have Emily Wayborn's. Her and Reece are matched equally, a match made in heaven.Their relationship is tumultuous at times, fierce and passionate and I wouldn't want it any other way. There's a memorable hot scene up on the bluff overlooking the most dangerous but breathtaking cliff...

First let me say I enjoyed the book. I enjoy this author immensely! I read First Kiss and loved it! It was dark, raw, gritty and sexy. Very suspenseful!

Last Kiss was tame in comparison.

***SOME SPOILERS BELOW

I did not like Emily in this book. 90% in and she was still suspicious of Reeves and not committed. Throughout the whole book she made excuses why she should, or shouldn't do things. Amber may have manipulated her, but she let herself be manipulated. She blamed Amber for all her self destructive behavior. I don't like Martyr's . And she played one too well. And Reeves, well he was not the Reeves of the first book. Yes, he was still dominant, but less so. In my opinion he gave Emily too much space, (Though there was one part where Reeve called Emily out on her s***, which I liked)

At 90% into the book - yes, 90%-, Emily was still not committed to Reeve, and kept using Amber as an excuse why she distrusted him. Then again, at 90%, when she pretty much told Reeve to do something that could have gotten him killed, (sorry if that is too much of a spoiler) I was done with her.

The end was rushed. Very rushed. I just could not buy Emily's turn around in the last 10% after listening to her inner turmoil for most of the book.

There were some surprised, and twists. But over all, just too much introspect, not enough sex, and lack of commitment from the main characters for me to give this book anymore than a 3.5 rating.

“I reminded myself that, while there was beauty in the fall, paper airplanes never stayed in flight for long. Eventually, I’d hit the ground.”

You know the kind of book that has you sitting on the edge of your seat, your heart pounding in anticipation, you’re holding your breath as each new scene takes place, you’re anxious, and you Cannot. Stop. Reading? That’s this book right here. I could not get enough of this story and I never wanted it to end.

The writing is phenomenal! Laurelin has a magical way with words and she reaches in and touches you. The emotions are so real and raw that you can’t help but feel everything. And there is a lot to feel in this story. I was overrun with so many fierce feelings: despair, frustration, anger, love, and so much hope.

“Now, I felt like I was fading. As if I were merely someone in a photograph left out too long in the sun, and although parts of my figure remained, I was no longer identifiable. I was no longer a person at all.”

Emily. My heart broke for her so many times, in so many ways. I wanted her to stand up, fight for what she wanted. Her fears and feelings were so real and relatable and you could understand where she was coming from. She was torn between her love for Amber & for Reeve. She is so full of love and life and her inner torment kept holding her back. I wanted so badly to see her soar.

And Reeve. He is everything! Dominating, possessive, controlling, yet he is so full of love. His tender moments are so endearing. And he knows just what Emily needs and how to deliver it, in all aspects of her. He loves her so completely and you could feel it radiating from the pages.

“My love for you is so ferocious, so dominating that I’m possessed by it. It changes who I am.
