Touch & Go
Dare to Love # 2
By: Mira Lyn Kelly
Releasing February 17th, 2015
Vivacious and successful, Ava Meyers is living her dream life, except for one thing: Ever since childhood, she’s been in love with her best friend . . . and she’s never admitted it. Back then, Sam Farrow was a damaged young man with a tough past. Now he’s supremely confident, super-sexy, and totally untouchable—until the night when Sam pretends to be Ava’s boyfriend to save her from some unwanted attention. In a moment of weakness, Ava finds out that a long friendship is no match for blistering sexual chemistry.
After years of denying his own feelings, Sam finds that one amazing night with Ava isn’t enough to chase away all the pent-up fantasies. So he proposes they spend a few weeks driving each other wild, exhausting their every desire, and then return to their perfect platonic relationship like nothing ever happened. But Sam’s plan has one fatal flaw: the part where they give each other up. Because the more they let go of their inhibitions, the more they’re tempted to never go back.
What an emotion packed, beautiful story about friendship and love, that left me gasping and in tears.
The energy and connection that's between Ava and Sam is rare, strong and loving. Best friends for 20 years, they have built a foundation for a lasting friendship, that nothing should break.
They are so good, perfect, together, like made for each other. I admire the friendship they had, it was so solid, giving and attentive. Sam's childhood, with abusive father, and broken promises from his mother, are touching. The way Ava's family folded around him, and made him part of them, was beautiful, giving the story new layers as they remember back to their childhood, living those years again in their memories.
And when they decided to fulfill each others fantasies in bedroom, they were explosive, scorching hot together. The aftermath of the physical relationship is what really touched me, how they had to face the truth, face their true feelings, break down the walls they had built around their hearts, and find each other again, but now on a totally new level.
I loved every moment of the story, it flowed out with such finesse, the charming group of friends, that were fun and entertaining to be around with, the best friends, Ava and Sam, who are so easy to like and relate to, the whole story just wrapped itself around my mind and heart, and I inhaled it in. If you would want to read only one romance story this year, I think this might be it. I just wanted to stay in that magic, allure, and spell of the story...
