* REVIEW * - Touch Me (Touch #1) by T. H. Snyder

Reviewer : Cheryl
Rating: 4 Stars

Touch Me by T H Snyder is a sweet romance story.  It is written in two POV's and is a good read. It is well written and T H Snyder puts a lot of effort in to this story. 

Riley just moved to Boston and is looking to start over with his life and put his past behind him.  Char is an accountant who's lived in Boston all her life.  Char's best friend Derrick is Riley's new roommate.  They meet through a phone conversation and then later at a store without knowing who the other is.  They still are affected by each other even without being introduced.

When Char finally manages to meet Riley, sparks fly.  They are attracted to each other and they both did not expect their attraction to be powerful.  Char got out of a relationship where she was battered emotionally and was sceptical with moving on, while Riley knew what he wanted and he wanted Char.  Mixed signals cause a rift between them and instead of facing it Char leaves to find some answers in California with her sister, while Riley is ready to move on.  When Char comes back, she finally accepts that Riley is a keeper and starts a relationship with him. 

Their relationship is fast paced because they feel the magnetism and attraction as if they were meant to be together.  Their emotions and feelings for each other are a sure thing.  They are confident in what they want and they want only each other. They fall in love and when they think they've got everything figured out Riley's past comes back to cause ripples in his life.

This story takes you on a ride with the dual POV's, but it is a good ride.  You are swept away with it and will love this story.  The one thing I wasn't so excited about is that with the dual POV's they both pick up from the beginning of how each other feels.  For example if they are going out on a date; both POV's will start from the point of them getting ready instead of just flowing and picking up from where one left off.  When Char gets to the restaurant the story goes back to Riley's POV from when he got ready.  It is good to understand what he's feeling, but I find it not necessary to start at the beginning.  

Touch Me is well written and is a great romance story. The supporting characters are great. They are all different yet so good together.  They all have their own story that will hopefully unfold in the next books in the series. 

Char is a focused and driven career woman who's had a relationship she would rather choose to forget, but can't. Riley is a pure gentleman who can easily leave the past where it belongs, behind him.

Some people believe in fate where others deem it a coincidence. Char and Riley are meant to be together, so life just happens to make sure they are in the right place at the right time. 

But is that enough? 

You’ll be falling in love with this dynamic duo as they find out who they are and why fate keeps making sure their lives are intertwined. 

Their differences are what make them all too similar, and throughout the course of their journey there is one thing that always brings them back together...the need for each other's touch.
