I loved the two main characters. Tanner was your typical rich, dangerous, very erotic, very sexy and a very jealous man. I also enjoyed the character of Natalie. She loved Tanner dearly and would stand up to him outside of the bedroom where they practiced BDSM. First off, the sex scenes are very erotic and there are a lot of them and is drawn out at each incident. It just goes on and on. Sometimes it was easy to put the book down in the middle of a sex scene and doing some housework. However, I will say that this is definitely a beautiful love story. But the author absolutely ruins it by how she manages to put the excess amount of pages in each of these books (fillers) outside of the erotic scenes. There was no drama basically until the 12th book. There was no guts to this series. What the author tends to do is between those very numerous erotic sex scenes is to describe in great, over doing it detail whether it is Natalie, Tanner or both, who may visit someplace for the day or on vacation, whether it is a trip, to someone's home, a social event, a wedding and even a dinner including how the table is set to exactly what they eat. That is it. Yes, it is a wonderful love story but the author made it so boring with all the extra descriptive nothing throughout the entire books that it is not worth the dollars I spent. Don't let the length of the book fool you. I kid you not, half of the book is descriptive material in tremendous, boring detail of a particular room such as at a hotel room, Tanner's place, restaurants, vacation spots, what they eat and drink and even when they leave the country for business, the different countries they visit are described in great detail. Even at a business meeting, she went into boring detail of what the office looked like to the point of mentioning exercise bikes being in the business room so that the big shot employers who work long hours have exercise bikes in their office. Who gives a rat's rump! Basically it was a different book but same basic story of details and descriptions in each book between the numerous sex scenes. I guess the author never heard the old saying "a little too much information that I needed to know." This author slyly got our money by over description by filling in unnecessary descriptions of just about everything and then in between those descriptions of all of these boring places, events, house, room, air plane, social attendance, Tanner and Natalie will have conversations such as how much they love each other which was beautiful to his accusing her of starring at men, or that he is too dark for her, or the clothing that she wore of which he did not care for and "punished" her. That is it between the communication between these two. People who are mute have more conversation with their hands with each other than Tanner and Natalie. This happens through all 12 books. The author basically ruined a fabulous story by dragging it out. There is a point of when a writer should know when to end a story and move on to new characters in a different book. Most complaints I read are people complaining how the book felt rushed. Well you won't feel that way with these books. Yes, there are great books continuing with your favorite hero and heroine like J. Kenner does with the Damien Stark series with her short stories and getting a chance to read more about their lives. Then there is the Gideon Cross series which is fantastic and not drug out to 12 books. This author created a new series out of another couple mentioned in Touched by You series. I certainly will not be reading that series. This author has a long way to go before she gets my interest again. There are far too many wonderful books out there to be reading boring books such as how she writes. I will be removing this 12 book series from my kindle and never read it again.
Part 1: Dark Desire - I received a free copy from the author for an honest review. Dark Desire is a wonderful introduction to Natalie and Tanner. They have a chance meeting at a concert where there is a magnetic connection between the two. This connection leaped off the page for me and had me drawn in from the start. I was frustrated by Tanner's behavior (you can sense layers here that you want to uncover/understand) but then 4 years Natalie heads to NYC where she stumbles upon Tanner ... once again the sparks ignite. I will admit I didn't realize this was an 8 part series but must admit there is enough in this first installment to intrigue me to read the rest. Looking forward to finding out what will happen with Natalie and Tanner!
Part 2: Naked Submission - I really enjoyed the second installment in the Touched by You series compelling, hot, sexy romance. We continue where we left off in Dark Desire as Natalie and Tanner really start to spend time together and grow this new relationship which involves spending time together in Milan. We get more back story on Tanner in this installment which really helps Natalie solidify her connection to Tanner. Natalie also continues to demonstrate her quiet strength which gets tested/pushed by Tanner. Curious where these two are headed and how Tanner will face/come to terms with his demons. Looking forward to continuing this series.
Part 3: The Heart's Domination allows us to see how Tanner's connection to Natalie is growing in ways that he doesn't understand. There are new revelations about Tanner's past that allow him to let go of something that has defined him for years but the question remains who is he without this defining him. Emily Jane Trent doesn't disappoint with the sex scenes as Natalie becomes more confident with Tanner in the bedroom. Excited to see what happens next with Natalie and Tanner.
Part 4: Bound by Love – Wow, this installment of the Touched by You series really had my heart racing. The relationship between Natalie and Tanner is heating up not just in the bedroom but this was even more intense in this installment. Natalie wants to be everything Tanner needs so we see her embrace submission in a new way. Tanner shows a lot of growth in this part that just made me smile, he also finds out some interesting news about himself. Some wonderful revelations and truths are admitted. Excited to see where we go from here with Natalie and Tanner's story.
Thank you Emily Jane Trent for another great read
