Author: Apryl Baker
Genre: NA Romance
A past tragedy has left Lily Holmes burdened with a devastating secret…
Since the death of her twin sister, Lily can’t bear to be touched. Not accidentally, not casually…and certainly not intimately. This makes it impossible for her to confess to her best friend Adam Roberts that she’s in love with him. She can’t give him the sort of relationship he needs, so she watches in silence while he plans his wedding with someone else.
Enter Nikoli Kinkaid, the campus manwhore…
Nikoli is a self-proclaimed connoisseur of women, and he wants to add Lily to his list of conquests, but she wants nothing to do with him—until he makes her an offer she can’t refuse. He’ll teach her to enjoy human contact again, giving her a chance to win over Adam, while Nikoli uses all his considerable charm to seduce her.
But Lily raises the stakes…
Lily loves cars. Her late father was a racer, and she grew up under the hood of a car and on the racetrack. Nikoli has a limited edition 1970 Plymouth Barracuda she covets, so she informs him the terms of their deal also require he not sleep with anyone for six months. If he does, she’ll win the car. If she surrenders and ends up in his bed, his beloved ’Cuda is his to keep.
In an intricate dance of control and surrender, a reluctant friendship becomes something more. Lily begins to crave things she never believed she could, and Nikoli realizes there is more at stake than his reputation.
If Lily overcomes her phobia, will she crave Adam’s touch as she’s starting to crave Nikoli’s? Or will she only find pleasure from the touch of a semi-reformed manwhore?
I fucked up.
She was the best and worst mistake I ever made.
I took the coward’s way out and ran.
Now I have a chance to make it right, but she's being stubborn. It used to be cute, but this time it can get her killed.
Boston's latest serial killer has his sights set on the only woman I have ever truly loved, and I will keep her safe even if it pisses her off, even if she hates me for it.
All bets are off this time. I want her. He wants her. Only one of us will win.
And I never fucking lose.
He left me broken, shattered. Pain unlike any I’ve ever felt filled me in the wake of his absence.
Six years later, I thought I’d finally gotten over him and moved on.
But Fate is a tricky bitch. She likes to torture us.
She brought Kade back to me, but I won’t ever hurt like that again.
I just have to stay out of his bed until this is over.
Fate is a cruel, cruel bitch.
WOW I loved this series!!! I hope there are going to be more. Maybe one for each brother?!?! I mean who wouldn't want more of these hot Russian men!?!?!
In Touch Me Not we get an introduction into the lives of the six brothers. That gets even better in The Sinners Touch as a few of them come to the aid of a brother.
I LOVED watching the Manwhore's come to their knees over their woman. The fact that at the beginning they think they will ever marry or even have a long relationship then fall head over ass to make that happen is so awesome!! We get that in both books.
The women too....my goodness the strong females that speak their minds and love to eat and have fun. No wallflowers for these men. It's awesome.
I loved the writing and the way Apryl tells the story from the heart at times and from a very good sense of humor at times too. Some of the subject isn't funny but sometimes that's the best time to laugh. To be ackward. To be brutally honest. She does this with flair and just......amazingness!!!! Like I said I hope there's more fun with these guys!
Very Highly Recommend!!!!!
Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values , I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there's always someone to tell your mama you were seen kissing a particular boy on a particular day just a little too long. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was titled Lord Margrave's Deception. I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. I started to write just that and would entertain my friends with stories featuring them as main characters.
Now, I live in a small town in WV where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach.
I love books, I love writing , and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.
