Publisher: Carina Press
Publication Date: January 2012
Kindle Edition: Novella (245 KB)
Genre: Contemporary Adult Romance, Erotica

Description from Back Cover:
Arriving home on leave from his tour of duty, Army Captain Alex Mendoza knows there’s a beautiful woman waiting for him—his best friend’s sister. She’s always been off limits…until now. He fully intends to move them out of being “just friends” and encourage her to release the sexual needs he senses she’s buried deep.

Tianna McIntyre is starting over after her marriage ended. Her ex-husband weakened her self-esteem and caused her to deny her true sexual desires. But being around Alex brings all her dormant fantasies to the surface, and now Tianna feels the stirrings of her secret, submissive wishes.

Determined to help repair the damage Tianna’s ex did to her self-worth, Alex will use whatever means necessary to convince her they’re meant for each other, including tying her down to make sure he has her full attention while he takes her to the heights of pleasure she’s always dreamed of…

My Opinion:
I enjoy this well thought out novella. I loved the fact that Tia was a strong character and got out of her terrible marriage. This was a great example of love from afar that finally gets ignited. Once they get together the sparks start flying. I was completely into this book. I could easily place myself in Tia and Alex’s shoes and feel for both of them. It’s a tricky situation to like someone’s sibling. The book was well thought out and was free flowing and easy to read. In fact it was a pleasure to read. The author takes us through both Tia and Alex’s mind throughout the book. It’s easy to feel the love they have for each other this way. Alex helps Tia realize that her ex should have no power over her. Once Tia excepts this she can move on with Alex. Well written and such a great lesson to be learned. I recommend reading this one.

I give Touch Me by Callie Croix 4 of 5 stars.
